The information forwarded to the Dārul Iftā is insufficient to determine a ruling, therefore we suggest the matter be referred to the Jamiatul Ulema or any competent Ulema organization so that a preliminary briefing on the matter be arranged. Thereafter, the way forward could be considered.

 

And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
Wassalāmu ῾alaykum
