Online Fatwa Reference Site

DUBAI (AFP) – The highest religious authority in Saudi Arabia, where a strict version of sharia, or Islamic law, is applied, has launched an official website for fatwas, or religious edicts.
The site (www.alifta.com) aims at providing “quick access to fatwas on an official website,” says a committee for research and edicts affiliated with the Council of Senior Ulema (Muslim scholars), which operates the site.

Wikipedia lists another dozen fatwa sites for fans of the fatwa.

    WHERE? WHICH website? There is no mention of this website address anywhere! Such an important website with no link to it and i cannot find it in google or any search engine.

  2. The website is mentioned, it’s http://www.alifta.com, but apparently it’s no longer functioning. Maybe it’s only down temporarily.
