An-Nawawi records in his book Riyad us-Saliheen:

Question: Is it permissible for Muslims to torture criminals?

Answer: In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

It is not lawful for Muslims to torture people or inflict any pain upon criminals beyond the limits prescribed by Allah.

Hisham ibn Hakim passed by some people in Syria who had been made to stand in the sun and had oil poured over their heads. He asked, “What is this?” It was said, “They are being punished for not paying taxes.” Hisham said: I heard the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, say: إِنَّاللَّهَيُعَذِّبُالَّذِينَيُعَذِّبُونَفِيالدُّنْيَاVerily, Allah will torture those who torture people in this world.


The Difference between Tasarruf and Karamah

By 'Allamah Mufti Muhammad Shafi' / 25 June 2013

The difference between tasarruf and karamah is that tasarruf comes about by the usage of natural means, like the imaginative or contemplative faculties, and it is from the commonly acquired skills. Acceptance from Allah Almighty and even being Muslim have no bearing on it, since many disbelievers like the Brahmans of India and the atheists of Europe called “Mesmerists” today perform it.


The Purpose of Man’s Creation

By Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani / 22 June 2013

Know that Allah (Exalted is He) created man for His worship.

Thus, Allah (Exalted is He) states in the Noble Qur’an:

“I have not created jinn and humankind but to worship Me.”(Qur’an 51:56)

Meaning, I created jinn and man only for one purpose, which is My worship. The original purpose of man’s life and the original purpose of his coming into this world and residing in the world is that he worships Allah (Magnificent is His Glory).
