Questioning the deaf-mute person on the Day of Judgment

Q 5: Will those people who are deaf and mute be called to account on the Day of Resurrection, whether they are Muslims, from the People of the Book, or Kafirs (disbelievers)?

A: Yes, they will be called to account, as they are Mukallafs (those meeting the conditions to be held legally accountable for their actions), according to their intellectual ability. This is not unusual now, as schools have been built for children who are deaf and mute to improve their education.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
