However, those in Dubai can’t anymore. The state’s top religious authorities say that stealing WiFi from your neighbour would not be proper Islamic conduct.

The Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department of Dubai has issued a fatwa, saying, “There is nothing wrong in using the line if your neighbours allow you to do so, but if they don’t allow you, you may not use it.”
