Dār al-Iftā' al-Miṣriyyah (Arabic: دار الإفتاء المصرية‎‎) is an Egyptian educational institute and government body[1] founded to represent Islam and a center for Islamic legal research since its establishment in 1313 AH/1895 CE. It keeps contemporary Muslims in touch with religious principles, clarifies "the right way," removes doubts concerning religious and worldly life, and reveals religious law for the new issues of contemporary life.[citation needed]

Dār al-Iftā' draws upon the Qur’an and Prophetic literature, and consults the opinions of jurists throughout history to help Muslims live their lives according to the principles of Islam so they may find happiness in this life and obtain the best reward in the afterlife.
