by The Albaani Site

Questioner: Okay, O Shaikh, regarding what is happening in Bosnia and Herzegovina, may Allaah protect it and the Muslims from evil, some Bosnian Muslim women have started to kill themselves and commit suicide when they come to know that the unbelievers or the Serbs are going to commit fornication with them, is that allowed?

Al-Albaani: It is not allowed.

Questioner: Even in their case?

Al-Albaani: It is not allowed.

Questioner: And the solution, what is it, they should defend themselves?

Al-Albaani: Yes.

Questioner: Even if it leads to fornication being committed with them?

Al-Albaani: The answer to this has already finished: even if.
