      You asked around three imams, and now you're asking the internet. Do you not see anything wrong here?

        I get your point brother. My intention wasn't to start an argument with you. What do you think I should have done then? Ask another imam?

          Well first of all, it's not a question that you should spend too much time on. It's not like you are in charge of a masjid and need to know the ruling.

          Secondly, why weren't you satisfied with the answer the first imam gave you? Or the second imam... or the third?!

          The imams you asked, are they actually knowledgeable or do they just lead the prayers? If they are people of knowledge, then you are sitting on a gold mine. Many people don't have access to one scholar and you have at least three! My advice is to use them as much as possible and forget about asking random questions to random people.

            So many MASJIDS have opened their doors within the US for Christians and Jews--Ahl al Kitab, to worship.

              The first link isn't about worship, they just invited them to iftar. The second link isn't about worship either, they invited them for food and interfaith Q&A.

              So the Muslim did not open their doors for Christians or Jews to worship in mosques.

                You realize we pray to the same Diety, right? Allah is just Arabic for God like Gott in German, Dķos in Spanish, Kamisama (神様) in Japanese, Shen in Mandarin or San in Cantonese (神), I can go on, really, I can.

                  According to these two fatwas, it depends:
                  Is it masjid al-haram or not?
                  Will it benefit (ie. they may take shahada or learn how to pray etc.)? Or is it just mere tourism?
                  How they dress etc.

                  And the scholar also notet that there are different opinions.

                  Abu Abdullaah I've read what you've written here, and I neg repped you, not because I have hatred for you, but because I think this is not a good way of thinking.

                  I know a brother who lives in Lithuania, and his closest mosque is very far away, so he seeks answers online.

                  And if you believe that seeking knowledge online is not pure, then that is wrong.

                  Let me give you an example.

                  You can read thousands of hadith online, and so many books, and listen to so many duroos, and read so many fatwas. It's important to be critical because, before you know it you are reading fabricated hadith and listening to shia scholars etc.

                  If you go to the mosque, you have the same risks, only with less variety. You might risk you visit 2-3 sufi mosques and end up as a mad dervish. Which is true for online knowledge as well, but the difference being that there is a lot more material online. That doesn't make it worse to seek knowledge online, since you will probably get the opinions of many more scholars and groups and books etc.
                  Sisters don't rep or joke with me.

                      ...I know a brother who lives in Lithuania, and his closest mosque is very far away, so he seeks answers online...
                      Irrelevant.

                      ...And if you believe that seeking knowledge online is not pure, then that is wrong...
                      Nobody said that.

                      ...You can read thousands of hadith online, and so many books, and listen to so many duroos, and read so many fatwas. It's important to be critical because, before you know it you are reading fabricated hadith and listening to shia scholars etc...
                      Irrelevant again.

                      More irrelevance.

                      Did you even bother to read the rest of the thread?

                      After all that you just searched a website which OP is perfectly capable of doing himself.

                        But he maybe didn't nor did anyone else whilst Sheikh Muhammad Al-Munajid is more capable to answer than us.

                        Yes. I don't get your question? I say all that because I believe it's not a good way of thinking.

                        Anyways Abu Abdullah, how did you manage to get almost 38k posts without getting banned?

                        Anyways my post was an answer to what you said in this thread, not just a single post.

                          He did better than that: he asked at least three imams.

                          After that, he asked a bunch of anonymous people on the internet. You think that's a good approach?

                          ...Yes. I don't get your question?...
                          You said it's not a good way of thinking then posted a load of irrelevant stuff.

                            first of all you have to be in state of purity (from major impurity) to enter masjid. a kaafir in his kaafir state is impure like a muslim man/women in need of ritual bath.
                            and secondly, why in the world a priest or monk come into a masjid and pray jumah or fajr with us? while his heart in not with Allah? like it or not these people are after public affiliation...the last thing a Muslim should have in his/her mind on. if he/she is in transition period from kufur to Islam then i have to dig up more about the views of the scholars, mostly likely its should be done in their home
