  • Doing/Not Doing Anything Out Of Love For The Loved Ones Who Passed Away

    Posted by Mohammad Ali Soomro on November 3, 2023 at 9:12 am

    Hello there!

    is it Islamically okay to not do/or do something because a loved one that passed away used to like or dislike. for example a man who used to love his mother a lot, when he was little her mother didn’t used to like red color clothes on her child. So because of his immense love for her. when he is given a red dress or shirt to wear he automatically feels a little repulsion from it like “that this is the color my mother didn’t used to like” even though he clearly believes that his wearing or not wearing red won’t have any effect on mother (I.e he has no corrupted belief in his mind that her mother is still watching etc etc) he clearly believes that his mother is not watching and his wearing/ not wearing would NOT make his mother either happy or sad. but he just doesn’t feel like wearing because his mother used to dislike this on him. with that thought he feels repulsion and doesn’t feel like wearing. is his not wearing the red shirt okay?

    There is nothing wrong in it and no religious objection can be raised. It is a way to express one’s extreme love for his mother. Matters of human emotions entangled with respect and intimacy of relationship are perfectly fine to express as long as they stay within domain of respect (humanly respect).
