Essay – Erdoğan’s Syria interventions: the Russian alliance and handover of Aleppo

Essay – Erdoğan’s Syria interventions: the Russian alliance and handover of Aleppo

PDF version [click to open or right-click to save]

While Aleppo burned last month in a vicious offensive executed by the Assad regime, supported by Russian air power and Iranian-backed militia, Muslims around the world watched on in horror and distress. Thousands were killed and many more displaced as the Eastern part of the city was thoroughly destroyed. The Syrian Army walked across with remarkable ease.

Understanding the concept of Dharoorah (“necessity”) in Fiqh

 

As Muslims, we know that our actions should be guided by the dictates that Allah (سبحان و تعالى) has placed for us, but among the many monkeys on our backs that we find it “difficult” to shake off in modern times are contemporary social strictures, pressures and conventions that can often make it challenging to practice even the most basic obligations. Obligations and prohibitions are often subverted – whether intentionally or otherwise – under the pretext of “necessity” and “difficulty”, meaning that this notion needs a close examination and a clear understanding. This article looks at the issue of Dharoorah – the juridical concept of “necessity” that determines when something is so dire that existing ahkam may be relaxed or exceptions to them applied. What is dhuroorah , what are its limits and where does it rightly apply?
