Thought for the Day

From Al Ghurabaa, one of the most funtastic Islamist websites in the UK.

Q. ... is your brother in-law aloud to give you a gift

A. In relation to the brother-in-law and sister-in-law and also male and female cousins, they are foreign men/women to eachother, and in fact they (the in-laws) are a greater danger than other foreign men/women, that is because the prophet (saw) said, "the in-laws are death" so avoid your death, you cannot freemix with them, nor socialise with them.

Socialising includes to give gifts, doing favours, cooking food specifically for the person, chatting about personal issues, joking, playing, enquiring about them - even asking 'how are you' etc. All of this is haram between brother/sister in-laws and between any other foriegn man and woman.
