Fatwa Committee UK

The European Council for Fatwa and Research in UK

Fatwa Committee UK is the UK branch (sub-committee) of the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR). Click Here to visit their webpage.

Manner of Issuing a Fatwa:

Fatwas and resolutions are issued in the name of the Council during its Ordinary and Emergency sessions, by virtue of a consensus where possible, or by absolute majority. A member who has objections or reservations to the fatwa has the right to record his reservation according to what is customary practice in Fiqh councils.

According to the Constitution, the President and member of the Council may not issue Fatwas in the name of the Council without its approval. However, each member may issue a Fatwa with his personal endorsement without mentioning his status within the Council nor using the official letterhead of the Council.
