Q 2: What is the ruling on
believing the weather forecasts
for the coming days, issued by the National Weather Service?Moreover, doctors say that people suffering from heart diseases, arteriosclerosis and brain diseases are prone to have shorter life spans and are more liable to an early death. Should we believe in what they say? Does this fall under the knowledge of Ghayb (the Unseen), while Allah Alone is the One Who gives life and takes it?
Weather forecasts are based on meteorological signs and previous experiences and they are not decisive. So they should not be absolutely believed or belied.The same applies to the opinions of doctors when they talk about patients suffering from heart diseases. These opinions are based on previous experiments and do not fall under the prohibited foretelling of the Ghayb. Life and death are in the Hands of Allah Alone.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
