    Title: Sms forwading now a days

    Question: Is it ok to forward these kinds of messages: (it is a forwarded SMS)? Please tell me is it ok or it is bida’h that we are making these things from our own. This is the message in brackets (Send these 5 names of Allah to 11 Muslims, believe me your biggest problem will be solved in-shaAllah. Ya Allah, Ya Karim, Ya Gafar, Ya Rahim, Ya Mujib. Try it even if you don't believe it, you may be surprised!!!"")

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 657/522/SN=09/1436) No such promise has been made in the holy Quran or Hadith that by sending the above mentioned message to eleven persons any big problem shall be solved. Hence creating such message on own behalf and sending it to people is now lawful.

    Allah (Subhana Wa Ta'ala) knows Best
