Kvinnor skakar man givetvis inte hand med. Men om en fågel hälsar, vad ska man göra då?

Det är inte bara handskakningar med kvinnor som kan vara problematiska för en rättrogen muslimsk man. Vill det sig riktigt illa kanske hälsningen kommer från en fågel. Hur gör man då?

Som tur är har muslimska lärde funderat över detta. Här kommer en överläggning om frågan från den mycket informativa hemsidan Islam Question and Answer.

Question

Should one return salaams to a parrot?! In my grandfather’s house there is a real live parrot, and when I pass by it, it greets me and says ‘al-salaamu ‘alaykum”. In this case do I have to return the greeting of this bird?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

It seems that it is not prescribed to return the greeting of a parrot which has learnt how to say salaams, because saying salaam is an act of worship and a supplication which requires intention on the part of the one who said it, and there is no such intention on the part of this trained creature. So one should not return its greeting. The ruling is the same as that on a tape on which the greeting is recorded and can be heard. It is transmission of sound and does not come under the ruling on greeting when it is broadcast live, in which case returning the greeting is prescribed and is a communal obligation (fard kifaayah).
Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen (may Allah have mercy on him) said:

Sometimes the greeting may be recorded and they put it on the tape and run it. If it is recorded then you are not obliged to return the greeting, because this is just transmission of sound.

Liqa’ al-Bab al-Mmaftooh, 28/229

See the rest of the fatwa and details on this issue in the answer to question number 128737. [Den fatwan länken leder till behandlar frågan om man behöver hälsa på TV-uppläsare som hälsar. Svaret är att om programmet är direktsänt är det bäst att ta det säkra före det osäkra och återgälda hälsningen. Men åter till papegojan.]

Based on that, the parrot does not intend to give the greeting of salaam, because it does not possess the power of reason, and when it speaks it is just repeating what it has been taught, without meaning what it says.

Some of the scholars have stated that it is not prescribed to prostrate if one hears a verse from a parrot or from a recorded tape.

One of the conclusions of the book Bahjat al-Asma‘ fi Ahkaam al-Samaa‘ fi’l-Fiqh al-Islami by Prof. ‘Ali ibn Dhariyaan ibn Faaris al-Hasan al-‘Anzi (published by Dar al-Manaar in Kuwait) is:

The listener need not do the prostration of recitation if he hears it from a source that is not human, such as a trained bird like a parrot or hearing it from an echo. End quote.

And Allah knows best.

Så nu vet ni det. Tack till Nonicoclolasos för länktipset.
