Salamun alaykum,

	The following question with regards to the permissibility of 
Zanjeer Ma'tam was kindly answered by Mullah Asghar.

Wasalaam,

QUESTION:
	According to the Mujtahideens of our religion, What is the mutual
consent over the issue of Zanjeer Ma'tam which is a kind of ma'tam ,in
which backs of men in Pakistan, India and Lebanon are cut and bleed? Is it
permissible or forbidden? 
	
	Are fatwas available or a documented reference to where I could
find such fatwas?  I would really like the authentic proof of evidence
since I have heard both sides with regards to it's permissibility.

ANSWER:

	In Iran, India and Pakistan, many books citing the opinions of
previous Mujtahideen on this issue have been printed over the years. The
consensus of the majority (although not all) of them is that it is
permissible. I have seen one such book where the fatawa of great Ulema
such as Mirza Husein Na'ini, Agha Ziyauddin Iraqi, Agha Muhsin al-Hakim,
Agha Abul Qasim al-Khui and some others have been printed, allowing it. 

Wasalaam,

Asgharali M M Jaffer
