    many people asked this questîon to the great scholars,they said it was it was permissible

  2. 1. i think that refers to burning human beings alive -- otherwise almost all weapons of war would have been outlawed by the ulama whereas, for example, the ottomans used cannons and other things like naptha -- a way of burning !

    2. Insects are vermin.

    Allah and His Messenger know best.
  3. Living in Shanghai and it being summertime we are faced with the issue of mosquitoes. I acquired a contraption which looks like a tennis racket but uses a jolt of electricity to kill the insect. In a way it quite literally fries it. I however mused upon the notion yesterday that since only Allah is permitted to kill using fire is it permissible to use such contraption? Should I find another way to get rid of them?
