some things are clear even for a non-mufti, for eg. to put a quran in the bin is clearly haram (may Allah forgive me for having to type that example out!)
and some things are clearly not haram eg. to put an English Times newspaper in the bin.
but what about the things that lie in between in the grey area? eg. newspapers with *some* islamic terms in them eg. the name President AbduALLAH, or Prime Minister Mohammed.
what is the ruling on this?
u say "discretion". but what does that mean? it's up to u? u won't be sinful if you do either?
plz elucidate and clarify. jazakallah kahir.
