Dubai: Dubai’s top religious authorities say that stealing WiFi from your neighbour would not be proper Islamic conduct.
Dubai’s Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department issued the religious edict, known as a fatwa, in response to a question on its official website yesterday.
The edict says: “There is nothing wrong in using the line if your neighbors allow you to do so, but if they don’t allow you, you may not use it.” The fatwa matches others issued by regional clerics in recent years.
Dubai’s Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department answers a variety of online questions.
They range from prayers and religious matters to modern issues like cosmetic surgeries and illegally downloading movies.
