I've looked around the internet for answers to these questions, but most of what I found seem to be personal opinions, and I found contradicting opinions on the same subjects. So, please give me some definitive answers, if possible, with cited sources. These questions are really bothering me, and I want some peace of mind.

  1. Are tattoos, or other skin decorations forbidden in Islam? Is there a difference as to whether it is temporary or permanent tattoo/decoration?

  2. Is dying/coloring hair forbidden in Islam?

  3. Is shaving facial hair, or hair from any other body region forbidden in Islam?

  4. Is gossip (talking *****about a person behind his/her back) forbidden in Islam? Is it called Ghibat?

  5. What kind of music is not forbidden to listen to?

  6. What kind of shows/movies are not forbidden to watch?

  7. Is playing instruments forbidden?

  8. Is keeping statues, decorative figurines, etc. at home forbidden?

  9. Is keeping pictures at home forbidden?

  10. What are the punishments (worldly, and afterlife) for criticizing Allah, the Prophet (PBUH), and his teachings of Islam?

I have some background behind each question, although some are obvious. If you need to know the background behind any question please ask.

I really need to know the definitive answers to these questions, if possible, in the light of Qur'an and Sunnah. Citing the source behind your answer would help, since that will allow me to look up the source and learn more about that and any other related matters.

Thank you.

Forbidden has a technical sharia countenance connotation. If you mean 'haram' that is how your Qs are answered.

1. yes they are. However if one has tattoos from before reverting, they can leave it alone.

2. Hena is allowed, but other chemical dyes are not.

3. eyebrows and between the eyebrows.

4. Gheebah and Nameemah are haram - it is very serious. In one hadith it is said that it is worse than zina (unlawful intercourse)

5.drums and daff.

6. I dont know

7. string instruments are forbidden

8. yes

9. No, there is a difference of opinion between scholars on this one. Conscious muslims take the more strict position when there is a difference of opinion on any matter.

10. there are no hudud (sharia prescribed) punishment for criticism in this life. What happens to one in afterlife - Allah knows best.

This is to the best of my knowledge, though I m not a scholar.
