Fatwa Concerning Qur'an Aayat As Ring Tones

Saudi council of Muftis have given an unanimous Fatwa that ring tones on QURAN AAYAT are Haram because the AAYAT are not complete when we pick the phone and meanings of AAYAT changes when they are not complete. QURAN is for Hidayat and not for ring tones. Please inform others.


KINDLY PASS THIS MESSAGE TO OTHER MUSLIM BROTHERS AND SISTERS AS WELL


ANY SISTER OR BROTHER OUT THERE WHO CAN CLARIFY FURTHER FOR EVERYONE THE BELOW INFO I RECEIVED WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED. THANK YOU.

Don't say 'Mosque'

Say always 'Masjid'

Because Islam organization has found that mosque = mosquitoes


Don't write 'Mecca'; Always write correctly as 'Makkah'

Because Mecca = house of wines


Don't write 'Moh’d'

Write always completely as ' Muhammad '

Because Moh’d = the dog with big mouth.

I received the above in an email and as far as I know there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the said "meanings". Based on my personal research I found the below info:

On the origin of the word mosque, I found a couple of useful links:
http://www.renaissance.com.pk/febq52y3.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosque
http://www.islamicvoice.com/June2006/History&Heritage/

Mecca in the dictionaries refer to the Holy City of Makkah.
But when spelled without the capital letter, mecca, it means a place that attracts many visitors.
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/mecca
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/Mecca

I was unable to find anything on the last allegation that Moh'd = the dog with big mouth.
