Follow Do Give Gifts to People Who Wear It For Evil?

By: Badrul Tamam

Al-Hamdulillah, praise be to Allah, Lord of the universe. Shalawat and salam wish to be blessed to the Prophet, his family and his companions.
Give gifts given in Islam. Especially given to fellow Muslims, especially to people who have close relations. The goal is to maintain good relations and foster a love in the heart. Because gifts are a great means to soften the heart.

From Abu Hurairah Radhiyallahu 'Anhu, from the Prophet Shallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam, he said:

To marry

"Give each other gifts, then you will love each other. "(HR, Al-Bukhari
in al-Adab al-Mufrad and Abu Ya'la with sanad hasan)

The Muslim Imam narrated in his Shahihanya, from the hadith of Anas bin Malik, the Messenger of Allah Shallallahu 'Alaihi Wasallam said: "For the sake of the One whose soul is in His hands, you cannot enter heaven so that you believe, and you cannot believe so you love each other."

It's just that sometimes, the gift given is something that can bring benefits to the person who is given and it can also be something that brings harm. Or the gift is something that can be used for obedience and can be used for immorality.

If the gift is something that is forbidden, then give it to others as well. Like a heirloom heirloom is believed to have luck. Every Muslim is forbidden to believe in such a heritage, so it is also forbidden to give it to others.

On the contrary, if the gift usually benefits the person who owns it, then it is rewarding. For example cocoa, peci, sajadah, and semis usually used by the owner to establish prayer.

Giving gifts to people we believe will use them in kindness, then this is recommended and we get reward. But if the person we give us believes will use the gift in disobedience then we may not give it to him. Like an avid friend watching porn, and we really know him, then we should not give a sophisticated cellphone and have complete facilities to him. Fearing he will use it for immorality which is his hobby.

Basically, an HP can be used for something that is modified. But it cannot be denied that it can also be used for something God forbids. So if we know well with the person who is given the gift and are sure that the person will insert immoral files into it, then we sin. Because the syar'iyyah rules prohibit giving help for something that Allah forbids. As the word of Allah Ta'ala:

Ali Alberto Voluntary Villa Cooperation Ali الإثم Provinces

"And help ye in virtue and piety, and do not help in the cause of sin and transgression."(QS. Al-Maidah: 2)

Indeed the means have the law as the consequence it causes. Something that causes it to be illegal, then something is law to be haram, although basically it is mubah.

But if we do not know for certain that the person we are giving is using it for immorality, then when we give it and it is used for immorality, we are not sinful. This sinful sin is only for those who commit immorality.
Wallahu Ta'ala A'lam.
