But now I might have caught covid 19 from my mother, and so it is delayed a week. it will take 4-6 weeks. i also have no car or driver's license, but if i marry i may have the excuse that driving is difficult due to a medication i take (an antipsychotic used for irritability from asperger's disorder, a milder form of autism). also, should i get a driver's license, or a house, or a job, which of these should i get? my childhood friend mentioned in the dream is working already, could i be a househusband? actually, my mother wanted me to apply for disability. also, i dont know if i should work from home or in person, as if i work from home i may be able to work as a data entry clerk. but my mother says to wait until my back heals for her to write the resume (I'm not good at writing resumes) and then apply. currently my mother is sick with covid 19 and i dont want to bother her further. please give guidance on this issue, preferably soon. </span></p>

So will that be permissible to sell because you do not actually own the product. And also if it is not permissible to sell because you do not own the product.

Husband has forsaken me and will not grant me talaq
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Salam Alaikum, </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I was recently married in January of this year. After moving in together I found out my husband was having emotional relationships with other women and including underage girls. He is also a drug trafficker and along with the mental abuse of him telling me he did not want me, I asked him for permission to let me move back into my home with my father. A week after leaving, my husband was angry during an argument and said "You are talaq". This was in a moment of anger and also close to a time he had sexual relations with me so his talaq was not valid. After giving him time to calm down he unblocked me on social media because he won't unblock my phone number. I explained to him that I can not afford to ask for khula because of my living situation. So therefore I asked him to write to me in a proper way and give me talaq. He refuses and completely ignores me. Our marriage is beyond repair and I have no desire to stay married to a kafir. I can not trust his family and I have no way to get in touch with them to talk to him for me. The sheikh who married us was in hajj for Ramadan and I was told after Eid he will get in touch with me and he has not. I have many proofs of my husband's mistreatment of me and I am mentally breaking down. I can not move on with my life in a halal way without him giving me talaq. Can someone please help me?</span></p>

"that I give you ". This was 4 days before ramadan.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">After a week into ramadan, this argument and fight really bad, I working from home and my mother was arguing and so was my wife, and I was so angered that I had no idea as to what was coming out of my mouth. Then again I said the second time the WORD. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">My question is that I know during the time of Umar R.A, the rule was created that 3 means 3, in one sitting and or different occations. I have also heard the standings of Ibn Taymiyyah regarding 3 meaning 1. I have also heard that each talaq is done in 3 menstrual cycle. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Now having said that, I would like to know what is the stance on my divorce, is it considered one or two?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Jazakallah </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Thank you</span></p>

Issue related to thought of passing gas
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamu alaikum Mufti sahab,</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I have a question regarding thoughts of passing gas during salah. I have read a hadith where prophet(saw) mentions to verify if one has actually passed gas or farted is through the smell or the sound. While offering salah or on the way to salah I sometimes have this feeling that I have passed gas but I don't hear any sound or smell anything.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Usually after using restroom or taking a bath when I prepare myself for namaz I sometimes have this feeling of something passing but I am not even applying any pressure nor does my stomach makes sound. I feel it's sometimes because of water not being cleaned from the back part that it creates a small bubble or gas between the area. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Can you advice on what should be done under this circumstances. Should one break their salah or continue and ignore such thoughts unless one can confirm on the sound or smell of fart?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Jazakallahu khayran</span></p>

Dream Interpretation and or Istikhara
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Hello , I had a question regarding istikhara. I am in the process of getting married iA and I have read istikhara multiple times.The first time I read istikhara, I went to sleep sleeping very very calm and happy being immediately reminded of her many good qualities as I was in the process of falling asleep mA and in general felt some type of calmness in my heart that I can not exactly put into words but would define as peace . After that istikhara,aH everything went very smoothly with both of the families and there is a mutual understanding that the nikkhah will be done at the end of the year when we both graduate iA. I also read istikhara again a few days ago after a small misunderstanding happend beetween us and went to sleep seeing a dream where someone said she would be a bad wife(her first name and my last name even though she told me she would not want to change her name to which I had no objection) with it almost sounding studdered and like it was saying she would be a bad husband even though she’s a girl. Without going into too much detail, when I did read istikhara that day I was a little confused and upset on the fact that she was a little upset that I didn’t message her back to just let her know where I was for a few hours . I did some research and found out that shaytan can also appear in your dream and try to distract you in your dream. I have also seen other dreams recently telling me to come back to some very bad habits that I used to have that aH I have left in the past and hope to keep that way. Also, just yesterday I have heard 2 speeches talking about how girls and guys are different and that you must deal with them with patience and understand there’s some things they will care about that u might not. At first, I didn’t understand why she would care I didn’t message her back for a few hours but looking back at it, I realized it was not a big deal at all and that just because I wouldn’t care about something like that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t. Also, we talked about this in person as well with her explaining to me her side and me letting her know my side to which she responded very well to and said she understood and would not make it a big deal again and was sorry. I was wondering if I could get some clarification on this bad phrase in my sleep please. I do truly believe she would be a very good spouse based on the facts that their has been a really bad addiction that I have been able to give up since she entered aH and have been motivated to be way more consistent with my prayers aH and been more closer to my deen aH and my whole family is also fond of her and has no objections even though it took some convinving to convince them to pursue marraige at such a young age. I will read istikhara again but was wondering if I could get some help on this matter.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"> </span></p>

<p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"></span><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamualaikum, had a question about a dream I was hoping you could answer. I almost never have dreams, but had one recently after which I felt a bit disturbed. In the dream, I was asked by someone to race down a building against 3 other people over a course of three days. The building is made of glass, the time is late at night and we have to climb on the outside of the building so I am afraid of falling down the whole time. The winner will receive a monetary reward. The person who is asking us to do this also asks us to insult each other but I refuse. I begin climbing down and pull ahead in this race to the bottom. The other 3 climb slowly, but they are together and seem happy while I feel anxious. The dream ends near the end of the second day.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Of note, I have a 3 day exam coming up in 2 months which is important for my job so not sure if this is a meaningless dream from stress or there is something more to it. Also possibly relevant, my wife is in a different country and the immigration process has taken about 2 years so far with probably another year until she gets her interview insha'Allah. Would appreciate some clarification, jazakallah.</span></p>

He says I no longer have children staying in my home therefore he wants to be in the home where there are underage children. For reference we have been married for 32 years, and he has been married to the other wife for 34 years. I have four adult children and the other family has 8 (of which 1 is under the age of 18). He states if I stay but give up my nights he will financially support me, however he will only come to my home occasionally and never for nights. It has been 3 months since he has stayed overnight at my home and usually comes once a week. He just keeps stating divorce is allowed if he can not be fair to both of us. He also states if I do not give my nights he will just divorce me.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> </span></p>

Re: Shariah Compliant Estate Planning

It would be an honor to help people with their Estate Plans to honor their religious beliefs in their documents and I have been learnign about how to do this, in part, from an article by Mr. Yaser Ali, Esq. an attorney in Tempe, AZ who published an article in the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA.org) in the NAELA Spring Journal of 2022. This can be downloded on the NAELA News + Journal sction of www.NAELA.org website.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">There is also an event scheduled at the Greater North Shore Estate and Financial Planning Council on Zoom devoted to a presentation of Estate Planning with Religious Implications in Estate Planning, by Ms. Stacey E.

Working at a Car Rental Company
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalam Alaykom,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Sheikh I am a college student working temporarily as an intern at a car rental company. I am afraid that me working there might be casuing ithm on me for two reasons:</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">the first is that the company sells insurance for renters and this insurance protects them from paying huge sums of money in case the car got damaged during the contract period (otherwise they pay sums that exceed the cost of the damage), is it haram if my job includes selling insurance policies to customers? Also is it haram if my job includes recording damage and then indirectly be involved in making the customer pay excessive reparations in case they did not pay for insurance? </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">the second reason is that the company charges renters who fail to fill up the gas tank at time of return two times the average price per gallon of gas for each unfilled gallon. If they otherwise choose to prepurchase a full tank of gas they are charged almost the average price per gallon. My question is does that increase fall under the definition of riba? </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Jazak Allah Khair Sheikh, Assalam Alaikom.</span></p>

Nikah Validity
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">When I was 14 years old, me and my cousin who was 18 years old, we used to like each other. My brother and my other male cousin (of 17 and 16 years of age at that time) knew about us. One day all of us were walking together and my other male cousin and my brother started to tease me and my cousin and in that teasing my other male cousin might've asked me and my cousin the ijab o qabool , and I think I might've gotten married to him. I don't remember exactly what happened. I don't know the exact question my other male cousin asked and I don't know if me and my cousin said yes or no. I asked my brother who was there at that time and he said he doesn't remember anything. I asked my other male cousin and he also said that he don't know. All I  remember is that all of us were laughing and I was feeling shy, and my other cousin saying "congrats, you may now kiss the bride" and me saying "no", smiling and walking away. The reason I think that we might've gotten married is becasue two years after all of this, I heard the hadeeth saying that nikah, divorce and taking back one's wife takes place even if done in jest. I didn't know what to do so, I asked my cousin (to whom I think I might've gotten married to) to text me a divorce message. I didn't tell him why I was asking him to send me such a text and I lied that I am playing truth and dare with my friends and they have given me a challenge. After I insisted a couple of times, he sent me a text saying only the word "divorce" and that's it. I asked an imam about the divorce and they said that this divorce doesn't count because first, I framed it as a challenge and the guy was unaware of the nikah and secondly, we don't know if he intended it or not. I asked two other imams' and they said that just like the nikah can take place even if done as a joke, the divorce can take place as well. And I also read somewhere that once he sent the divorce message it became a formal writing for which no intention is necessary. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">So, now I am confused and worried. I don't remember anything. Did the nikah take place? Does the divorce count? Can I marry someone else? What if the nikah did take place and now I forgot about it, then that would mean that I would be living a life of sin if I get married to anyone? Please guide me as to what should I do next. </span></p>

Faith and beliefs
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><em>AssalamuAlaikum, I have a few faith related questions that have been bothering me for awhile. <br /></em></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><em>1) </em>Were we created with our personality hence we make decisions based on our personality which Allah has given us? Example : Some people have open hearted personality which helps them to accept Allah while others have a very stubborn and do not accept. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2) If Ambiya (A.S.) are Masoom, then isn’t it easier for them to not commit Sin than and harder for us because we aren't Masoom? </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">3) Is Jannah subjective such that we can only desire and have certain things that Allah likes and not be able to desire or do anything other than that like for example, desiring to smoke or other things that are Haram in the Dunya? </span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In that case, if a husband and wife enters Jannah together, would she feel jealous that her husband has 72 hoors? Or would she not feel jealous</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">And can a woman receive multiple Men as her husband if she desires that in Jannah?</span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

To the side where the rows were joined I also saw a bright full moon. I took my phone out to take a picture of the scenery and one of my cousins was not happy for me and causing displeasure.

Meaning of dream and steps to follow after
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Last night my husband had a dream that something heavy is on his chest and is wrapping him around. He feels like he can't get up and move. He was trying to escape and take off whatever that was on his chest but it was not going away.  He was extremely scared and hurt his knee with the side of the bed and dresser. He had blood on his teeth as well. Along with this I heard a woman scream and heard a noise of someone falling down the stairs rolling over. I'm not sure if that was my husband screaming due to the dream he had. The time of this was 5:00am. I also myself had another dream at around 7-8am. I had a dream about my husband that there were 2 of him. Someone else that looked just like him but was not acting like him. This person was acting very different trying to portray as my husband to me. In my dream I see my husband as 2 people. He is in 2 places at the same time and I'm crying in my dream screaming that one of him is not real and it's someone else trying to be him. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I would like to know the meaning of the 2 dreams and the screaming part as well. </span></p>

Now that she has completed her studies and obtained a work permit, she left me in Seattle, Washington, and moved to Sugarland, Texas without asking me. She has made no contact with me for the last month; she is not responding to my messages and has blocked me.</span><br /> <br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">She is making false allegations. The main reason she left me is because she likes to be independent and does not like me asking her to pray and follow the Quran and sunnah.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Can you please answer to few of my questions give fatwa on below questions:</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">1) Can she take Khula without my consent or knowledge by providing false details to the Imam/Mufti?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2) Will the Imam/Mufti cross-check with me the information she provided before granting Khula?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">3) If she takes Khula, can I ask her to repay the Masters tuition fee I paid because she used me and left me right after finishing her studies and getting her work permit. I am not asking her to repay anything else I spent on her while she was living with me but just the Master's tuition fee.</span></p> <p><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Jazakallah Khair</span></p> <p> </p>

The company also gives<br />your free entries into bi monthly prize draws to win a car etc. since we are<br />not paying money for the entries but paying for the membership, would this be<br />considered halal if we win a prize?</span></p>

Fidyah for qadha salah for my 93 year old father
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Note: I asked this question over 1 year ago. I think it may have been forgotten. So, asking again.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"><br />As-Salmu Alaikum, My father is 93 years old. All his life he has been punctual with salah. When I was a child I remember seeing him pray qadha-umri for missed salahs. So, I assume that he had made up for any missed salahs already. Now he is 93 years old. A friend suggested that he should pay fidyah for any missed salahs. The problem is that my father's memory is very weak now. He gets confused easily. I asked him if he had missed any salahs in his life that he still needs to make up for, but he is not sure. He said maybe in his younger years he had missed salahs, or maybe if he had missed salahs then combined together that will be 1 year of missed salahs in total. He is not sure and his memory cannot be trusted. Even if we assume 1 year (which may be wrong), that is around $22,000 in fidyah. He has $6,000 saved. He also gets around $600 each month in supplemental security income from the government. Does he need to pay fidyah? How much to pay? What if he passes away? I am not sure what to do. Please advise. I can even call if needed. Jazk-Allh, Ahmad Siddiqi </span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I saw a dream sometime ago that i was on the terrace of a house sleeping without any clothes on. Then suddenly i wake up and hide behind a short wall with blanket covering me and then i see at the same bed i was sleeping there was a person which my heart said is prophet Muhammad pbuh but i saw only the side face of the person. He was giving a lecture to a group of people and i was ashamed (reason i dont know maybe because I didn't have any clothes on). Can you please let me know what could be the tabeer.

Dream
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Hi, im not a muslim but my friend is and my friend told me to ask this question here. I had a dream last night that i was in some place which was outside but there was a white building around me. I was there and a man was next to me and we were kneeling on a rug because he wanted to show me how to pray to allah. That man had a beard and he had white clothes on. He showed me how to pray and the prayer went like this- we were kneeling on two different rugs and bowing and he was reciting some prayer but he was whispering while that and we had our hands a little bit up and our hands were facing up and then we was moving our heads to another direction and again to another direction but we bowed again between that. I dont remember it clearly but i think it was that way. And also i had this weird feeling lately, like if someone was leading me to a better path, I started to see people in a different way and also i started seeing how bad my friends are. And many more things like getting better grades also my mental health started getting better then i had this dream. My friend told me that maybe it was prophet muhammad but I don’t know, it’s better to ask here. I really want to know the meaning of this dream. Thank you so much</span></p>

Marriage and Divorce

Will their remarriage be permissible according to the Shariah of Islam? Please present reasons.
<p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"></span><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">They got married on March 20, 2020. At the time of the wedding, the bride was staying in America and the groom was with his family and the bride’s family in Bangladesh. In the video call, the bride accepts, and her father signs on behalf of the bride. Bride accepts (says the Kobul) over video call that her father, Kazi, and everyone else listened. Bride’s father did not pronounce anything on behalf of her. The dowry was written as collected in the Kabin, but the groom did not give it to the bride’s family.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">After a few days of marriage, quarrels started between them over the phone, and the bride sometimes started abusing her husband, because she felt mentally stressed and helpless. The groom had informed the bride from the beginning that if she abused him for any reason, the bride would be divorced for the fourth time. Such abuse happened more than four times. The bride repeatedly apologized for her actions and asked for time until she returned home. Regardless, the groom divorced her according to the Muslim Shariah of that country on November 9, 2020, before she arrived in her home country. Before the divorce, the groom did not inform the bride and did not discuss it with her family.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">For divorce, the groom went to a law firm and got a lawyer’s help. There the Kazi Saheb recites the Khutba and recites aloud who is divorcing whom. The groom nods three times to the yes indicator response. Then signed the written divorce papers. It is noted that the lawyer gave two options to the husband: 1) to give three talaqs at once (Talaq e Bayeen), 2) to give one Talaq, and then to give the remaining two talaqs at intervals of one month. The lawyer said that triple Talaq in one sitting would be effective after three months, like one Talaq in one sitting, but the husband need not go and sign three times. The groom opted for three divorces (Talaq E Bayeen) in one sitting. The divorce papers are sent to America and then she comes home. The bride tries to communicate with the groom and his family, but they do not give her a chance. Then in March 2021, the divorce became official.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">NB: Remarriage with the divorced partner for the second time is allowed under the counsel of their marriage & divorce. In this case, for one time marriage, one time divorce is counted even though the divorce is pronounced thrice. In this way, after marrying and divorcing three times, the husband and wife becomes haram for each other. The link is attached here (see section 7: Talaq)</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">http://bdlaws.minlaw.gov.bd/act-details-305.html</span></p>

Can a woman be a caretaker for a disabled non-mahram?
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamualaikum wrwb,</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Can a woman be a caretaker of a autistic and disabled non-mahram relative if there are no other options? There are no other caretakers for him and she's the only one there to help clean him which causes many akward situations for her. She tries to do pardah around him but he does not understand and they live in the same house.  She feels very ashamed of this but there's nothing she can do about it.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Is this permissible?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Will she get sins for it, even if the situation is forcing her to step out of her pardah?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Please let me know.

Irregular bleeding due to coil
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Hayd question</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I have been experiencing irregular bleeding for several months now. It started after I had an IUD placed a few months after I had my third baby. It was like a light period for about one month and then it reduced to intermittent, but daily, spotting and discharge for almost 3 months. Now I still have intermittent spotting/discharge but not daily. It like every other day now. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">For the past 5 months since getting the IUD, (after speaking to an alima) I have been following 10 days Hayd, then 15 days of tuhr, then 10 days Hayd, so on. But my last Hayd was only 9 days. On the 10th day I did not have any discharge.( but on the 12th day I had some spotting) so now I am confused as to how to proceed. Do I count 15 days tuhr starting from that 9th day? </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Recently I learned about the ruling that we are supposed to revert to our Hayd and tuhr habits during istihadha so now I’m not sure if what I was doing was even correct. I am very confused what to do. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Outside of pregnancy and postpartum, my periods were generally 8 days and my cycle varied from 31-35 days</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">After my first child I had about 3 weeks nifas, then no periods for 9 months. Then I had 4 periods with the same previous habit</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Then I was pregnant with my second child. Nifas was 3-4 weeks. Then no periods for over one year. Then I had 1 period, then I was pregnant again with my third child. Nifas was right up to 40 days. No periods after that until IUD placement. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">April 1 2022 11:00 - IUD placed, bleeding started</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">9/11 12:05 am - present tuhr (brown/red/pink discharge once daily or every other day)</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">From my understanding, after 9/26 12:05 am, if I see any spotting, I will count it as Hayd. Is this correct?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Second question:</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Does yellow discharge count as Hayd/istihadha? During my normal period days, towards the end I had brown/yellow discharge but I always eventually saw white discharge. Then I would take ghusl. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In the Hayd logged below, I counted the end of Hayd at 9/11 12:05 - is that correct?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">9/1 2pm -9/9 2:30 intermittent brown spotting 1-2 times daily</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">9/9 5pm, 11pm yellow discharge</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">9/10 7am yellow discharge, 12:45pm brown discharge</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">9/11 12:05 am yellow discharge, 9am white discharge, 12 pm white discharge </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I ask this because I am not sure whether to count yellow discharge as hayd, since I have yellow discharge quite regularly these days with my current irregular bleeding pattern. I learned that if yellow discharge is normal for you, then it does not count as hayd. But I also learned that if white discharge at end of period is normal for you, then to wait to see the white discharge before taking ghusl.</span></p>

Medical and house insurance
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalam-o-Alaikum,</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I am a house owner and has no mortgage or loan. For the last few years, my income is very low. The wooden houses in USA may incur heavy losses in case of fire (may Allah protect all of us). I heard some scholars that house or medical insurance is haram (if option to opt-out is available). Even in case it is mandatory, one can only get his invested amount to cover any loss that happens. I appreciate that ulema in USA are not shy of giving bold verdicts, Alhamdolillah.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">However, my question is that what should a person in my situation do? If something happens to the house, I am unable to rebuild it with my finances. These wooden houses are at greater risk  of fire and other hazards. Should I sell the house and start living on rent? Even then, I know that someone else (meaning the house owner) is doing a haram act for the place where I would be living. It is just like paying someone to do the haram for you. For medical, the situation is even more difficult. I cannot rent out anyone's body. Any accident or medical emergency would mean an insane amount of loan (if they are ready to treat a person without any financial credit score or money in bank)</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">When I discuss these matters with the community, I find that most of the people (if not all) are getting all types of insurances. I would love to live by those fatawa. I have opted out of insurance last year. A few weeks ago, a big tree at my house fall down in a storm. Luckily it did not damage my or my neighbor property. My neighbor told me that if something had happened to his house, my house insuance would be paying him. If I dont have any insurance, I guess I would have to pay for it.  I am sure that the scholars writing those fatawa know all these problems. I am curious to know how these fatawa are practically implemented in USA by the people who wish to follow Islam. Are there some halal ways out to address these concerns?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Thanks and regards</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">M.

I was taking ESL class and it was arranged by that institute so i attended it because my knowledge was little that time. In the party we did not do any kind of worship but iur teacher showed us a movie called Christmas carols and we ate and sang a song i don't remember exactly but now i repent what i did and did tawbah. Am I still a muslim ? I don't feel so good about it as some scholars opinion is i am out of the fold of islam so it nullified my iman and my nikah. Then what should be done in these case as i was unaware of it. Another question if i accidentally say something kufr without meaning it then in these case do i have to renew my nikah as well.</span></p>

There were some disputes between me and my spouse. I have asked them through differenet people that we can solve this matter " that you get your right and I get my right and end this in a good manner" but they are saying we have to use the law of Land (USA) and making some misleading and baseless statements in the court, by which my rights are being taken away. So after grabing away the rights of the father , can a imam masjid just on the basis of the degree of divorce from the american court can issue a divorce to some one wife.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I know that the civil divorce and the Islamic diroce are seperate things,does siging the divorce papers (with no intention of divorce) in the american court where the judge is nonmuslims means that the divorce is done islamically as well</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Can husband ask the wife of in laws to Make a oath regarding the statments made to issue the islamic divorce. I came here as an international student and I was promised the papers soon after coming into the USA, If someone have to leave the country now , does that automaticaly mean divorce, I mean can a imam masjid issue a divorce.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Thanks</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> </span></p> <p> </p>

I am now uncomfortable to wear it ever since I read the Hadith. Should I take it off? Or is it permissible to wear it in such cases?  </span></p>

The total value of the account is worth on the market price of the stocks. A few months after his passing we had divided the stocks where the value (at the time of calculation) was the X amount that he wished to donate. However before we would liqudate and distribute the stock to the heirs and direct the sadaqa amount to chairty the stock values went down again. It has been a fseveral months after that initial distribution calculation. After his passing the value of the stocks have changed, mostly reduced. My question now if we want distribute the wealth from the stock trading account, do we have to remove the $X amount from the total current value (market value) and redistribute the remaining amongst the heirs or can we use the calculations from earlier when it was distributed but we were unable to liqudiate (this would mean that the final value of the sadaqa (at current market value) will be less that $X becuase the market has crashed. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I appreciate your help</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">JazakAllah Khair</span></p>

My aunty is my mothers sister and they both couples believed each others at that time.My father bought 1 plot separately for us to outer location from my grandfather house. After my fathers and mothers death my big aunty came from Saudi Arabia and saying give my plot back to us. My father was alive that time, He told her which plot are you asking, that is my plot you send money for this house (grandfathers house) to build means 60% big uncle money and 40% my fathers money and hard work labour for my father to build grandfathers house. But big uncle never came to India before. Only he send money, big aunty and my father fought each other. My father says to her that let me talk to my brother call him to saudia if he says he send money for plot investment in 1985 then I will give him full plot. But she refused to call big uncle from India. She said why I should call, Then she went back to Saudia then my father got sick with very serious illness of brain tumor. In that condition he told us that this plot belongs to us means my fathers children and the upper floor (grandfathers house) belongs to big uncle. After my fathers death big uncle and aunty both are coming now to india frequently that give my plot to us. Why they not come when my father was alive. Plots registry belongs to my fathers name. Big aunty told us plot registry belongs to her sister name means my mother. But she was proved liar because registry is on my fathers name. As per relatives big aunty is involved in black magic things. Now she is saying you all are my children divide the plot in 2 parts. We are 2 brothers and 2 sisters. So I decided to give half plot but my sisters are not agree to give her that this plot belongs to my father it is for us why should we give to her. Thanks. Mohammad Adnan Siddiqui</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My late father : Mohd Imran Siddiqui, My late mother : Moina Khatoon, Big uncle : Mohd Anwar (Annu) Sultan, Big aunty : Naseera Khatoon, Late grandfather name : Mohd Sultan </span></p>

Wife's cursing and use of foul language

My wife curses my family and me on a regular basis. She has made a habit of cursing for something that may have happened many years back, and when I try to stop her, she gives the excuse that she is right and can do so as she is the victum. So an issue that happened 15 years back and on which we have argued 100 times still comes up.  -<strong> I think she does it to keep me pressured and her inlaws away from my house. She also gets agressive when I reply back and try to stop her.</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2. She spit out all the curses and foul language in front of the kids. When I ask her to speak privately, she refuses and provides a rationale that my kids should be aware of the issues.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">3. On regular basis, she has mentioned that she dosent want to live with me and got stuck. She has directly mentioned leaving me (in front of kids). </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In light of Islamic practices, please advise what I should do in this situation.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Jazakallah khair</span></p>

Regarding Dealing In Raw Leather (not tanned or processed leather) - Is it permissible to get a comm
<p><strong><span style="font-family: 'times new roman', times; font-size: 14pt;">Assalamualaikum,</span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'times new roman', times; font-size: 14pt;">I started working as a freelance leather buying agent with my uncle who has decades of experience in this field where we connect real buyers with genuine sellers and gets a nominal commission from the seller once the deal is done...</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'times new roman', times; font-size: 14pt;">We have buyers from Muslim countries like Indonesia and Nigeria who purchases leather through us and manufacture human foods called "Ponmo Food" from cow leather. We have genuine sellers from non-muslim countries like Brazil, Colombia, etc, so we don't know whether the cow was slaughtered in an Islamic way or not.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'times new roman', times; font-size: 14pt;">The leather is normal leather that is used for tannery and goods but buyers want to use it for food so, I thought it was their personal choice and I got into this business but now I want to know...</span></p> <p><em><span style="font-family: 'times new roman', times; font-size: 14pt;"><strong>Note:</strong> Our buyers are not manufacturing food. They are selling it locally and the local buyers purchase it for different purposes including Tannery, Shoes, Medicine, and Food but the majority is for food manufacturing... <strong>"It is raw skins not tanned or processed skins"</strong></span></em></p> <p><strong><span style="font-family: 'times new roman', times; font-size: 14pt;">1) We just work as a platform to connect buyers & sellers and don't involve in any food-making and selling process. Also, our buyer is not making food, our buyer's buyer is making food out of leather. So taking a commission from the seller is permissible or prohibited for me?</span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style="font-family: 'times new roman', times; font-size: 14pt;">2) If the income is not pure then what should I do as I don't have any other source of income? Leave the business now or continue the business till I get any other job or business?</span></strong></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'times new roman', times; font-size: 14pt;">Jazak Allahu Khair</span></p>

Calculation of "Liquid/Cash Zakatable" assets in a startup company
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">As Salaam Wa Aalikum Mufti Sahab,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I hope and pray you and your entire team are doing well.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I wanted to ask about calculation of zakat for an investment in a startup company.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My close relative has invested in a startup company, and asked the management to give him the "liquid/cash zakatable assets" of the business. So he can pay zakat on that.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">They came back with a reply which needs some clarification on how "exactly" to calculate "liquid/cash zakat assets".</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Basically, there are following points to consider:-</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">a) The number is significantly higher - in millions.</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">b) The number includes the "net cash + any debt elements". Basically they raised the recent capital using "SAFE" agreement between them and their new investors.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In their own terms:-</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">"...this is the instrument we used to raise the latest round from a VC fund, and technically in my understanding it is not 'debt' but it does give some rights to get back money first in case of liquidation (adverse event) of the company (so somewhat pseudo equity that is not yet converted into shares but equally have the preference nature to it when it comes to liquidation..."</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Please see link below:-</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_agreement_for_future_equity</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Please do note, this SAFE round is for their recent capital raise. My close relative is already a shareholder in the company, from previous round investment.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">It's just that, now they have this sum of "liquid/cash assets" which is significantly higher, and was raised using SAFE agreement. So it kind of does have this form, where the investor has the right to get money back in some adverse event, although it is not debt technically speaking.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">So I have following 3 questions in this context, Mufti Sahab</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">1) In order to correctly calculate "liquid/cash assets" should we try to subtract the "debt or pseudo debt" elements from the total cash, to get to net cash? Or is zakat eligible for the total amount?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2) Also in general what should be done for zakat calculation in case of investment in startups? because normally it is not always possible to get accurate "liquid/cash" assets each year from the management. Can we assume some standard percentage each year? The situation of startups change very drastically from year to year.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">3) Also if zakat is coming out to be too much, because of a big increase in the value of share holder, and the investor at the time is not able to pay for that much zakat, what should be done?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">JazakAllahu khairan for reading through the question. Please kindly reply ar your earliest convenience.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Thank you</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Saad Qureshi</span></p>

Is Hajj fardh on us?
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamualaikum Respected Ullema and Mufti,</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I am married with 2 children. My wife and I would like to perform Hajj but we wanted to delay it to a later date. Please let us know if it is permissible in our situation to delay the Hajj? My situation is that I am married with 2 children, one is 7 and one is 11. My 11 year old has a disability: Autism. This means he cannot function without an adult and needs constant supervision and cannot be left alone. We do not have any extended family such as grandparents, aunts, or uncles that we can leave our children with when we go to Hajj. Our children will have to go with us whenever we do go to Hajj. My wife and I were thinking to delay Hajj until our 7 year old is around 18 years old so that he is able to take care of his older brother who is disabled, and then my wife and I will be free to go to Hajj. At this time, we have no one to take care of our children so that we can go on Hajj. Should we just go to Umrah with both our children in the current time? Or should we wait and perform the Hajj in the future as we plan?  Please advise. JazakAllah.</span></p>

I recently got a client that makes and sells pork sausages. He wants to be setup in an accounting software and ongoing bookkeeping services. My question is if it is halal for me to service his business? If it isn't halal or is makrooh, is it allowed for me to contract the work out to another bookkeper while still being in contact with the client? I wouldn't make any profit from him, but I would protect the image of my business. My concern is since I already agreed to do the service, it will look bad for my business to turn him away. Please guide me on what to do.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Jazak Allahu Khair,</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Nour</span></p>

Is okay to get tortured mentally and lose your self respect on the name of Islam and Patience???
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">As salamu alaikum </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I came to U.S in 2017 after marriage and living here since then. I never got any positive vibes from my immediate in-laws. Especially my mother in law. My husband is her only son and she had 2 daughters. So as per my husband's relatives before marriage my husband use to listen to his sisters and mother. He even use to sleep along with his mom. But it's obvious after marriage things got change and so all these ladies never liked me. My both sister in laws never say anything in front of me but I can feel there negativity. And I was okay with that. I never reacted to these things. But my mother in law she keeps taunting me, she keeps telling that she doesn't likes me and she was all healthy but then since I came she got so many health issues and now if something happens to her then I am responsible. And everytime she says something torturing over phone and later denies. And my both sister in laws will always there present during these scenarios and she call me using their phone only but then even they denies everything and claims that I am lying in front of their relatives. I don't have any family here. My parents lives in India they know everything but there is no one with whom they can about this. If my husband question his family they will start accusing him and will say him that he is losing his Jannah by hurting his mom. Since 5 years this is happening and everytime she insults me, tortures me and then I am forced on the name of religion to go back and meet them as if nothing happened. And the worst thing is that when I go back, their face and reaction is like,"look you have got no one to stand by you, ultimately you are here bending infront of us after what all we did. This is a mental torture to me. I have lost my confidence and self esteem. I feel like I have no identity. Recently 10 days back I become mother and I was at my sister in law place with my mother in law as per her demand and as a result  my stitches were apart and I landed up in emergency then I came back to my place.  And her torture started again, she accused me of stealing her son and grandson without thinking about my condition at all. And said that she is going to behave with me like until she gets back her son. Within 15 minutes my mother called her and talked to her and she denied everything that happen. My sister in laws were present with her at time as one of them called me and said "mom is angry on you and wants to talk to you". But now all these 3 ladies are denying everything. And now they wants my husband to bring me and my sons back to my sister in laws place and live with them. I am sick and tired of all these. Please help me. Everyone is forcing me.</span></p>

My question is that if a person has Ben really really sick for the past 12 plus years, is on countless medicines just to get out of bed, and still not feeling well, is it okay if they consume marijuana medically? The doctor has told them that they could potentially stop taking all of the medicines, including narcotics, and actually feel better. Also, they have been having bad side effects to different medicines and it's getting harder to take care of their own children. Islamically, would you be able to consume marijuana as medicine? <br />I would appreciate it if someone could get back to me as soon as possible. <br />جَزَا کَ اللّٰہ </span></p>

The 2nd marriage doesn't have paperwork because they are in the USA and fear legal problems. They did have 2 witnesses and made appropriate Islamic marriage vows. In Islamic law is this marriage valid or acceptable? The wife believes it isn't. The husband believes it is. I don't care about the USA legal law, I am asking about Islamic law.

There is an `Id for every nation and this is our `Id."<br /> <br />حَدَّثَنَا عُبَيْدُ بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو أُسَامَةَ، عَنْ هِشَامٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ ـ رضى الله عنها ـ قَالَتْ دَخَلَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ وَعِنْدِي جَارِيَتَانِ مِنْ جَوَارِي الأَنْصَارِ تُغَنِّيَانِ بِمَا تَقَاوَلَتِ الأَنْصَارُ يَوْمَ بُعَاثَ ـ قَالَتْ وَلَيْسَتَا بِمُغَنِّيَتَيْنِ ـ فَقَالَ أَبُو بَكْرٍ أَمَزَامِيرُ الشَّيْطَانِ فِي بَيْتِ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم وَذَلِكَ فِي يَوْمِ عِيدٍ‏.‏ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ "‏ يَا أَبَا بَكْرٍ إِنَّ لِكُلِّ قَوْمٍ عِيدًا، وَهَذَا عِيدُنَا ‏"‏‏.‏<br /> <br />Reference<br />Sahih al-Bukhari 952<br />In-book reference<br />Book 13, Hadith 4<br />USC-MSA web (English) reference<br />Vol. 2, Book 15, Hadith 72</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I have heard it refers to the two Eids (Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha), but what do musical instruments have to do with Eid? Did the Prophet S.A.W. let the Ansari girls play their intstruments, because I have heard that musical instruments are haraam. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Jazak Allahu Khayran, may Allah preserve and bless you and your families during this holy month.</span></p>

Marriage Question
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">A while back, almost 3 years ago, I had an argument with my wife and after the argument we let each other be. I went to another side in the room and was just thinking about what was going on and I Found myself mouthing the words “I divorce you”, randomly numerous times. Again, I was mouthing the words and not actually saying them. I can’t even remember how those words ended up in my mouth. Then one time the words actually came out to the point where I was able to hear them, like a small whisper. At the time, I remember being absolutely certain that I only heard the words once whereafter I immediately stopped. It was just a whisper that only myself was able to hear as I was mouthing these words and I remember stopping immediately because I actually heard the words come out. At that moment, I did some research and found out this counts as one divorce and my wife and I made up immediately and proceeded with our marriage. Now years later, I find myself thinking about this situation and whether I may have said and heard those words more than once. At the time that it happened, I was confident it was only said once, but now I get worried that I may have said it multiple times. I'm not sure if these are whispers from Shaytaan. Please advise. JazakAllah Khair.</span></p>

Can I kindly request you to keep my question confidential?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">This question is from my sister who lives in India and quite worried with some dreams she has these days. I am posting her questions here under in her own words.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">"I had a dream couple of months ago, my brother was smiling and carrying a DOLA (coffin) which was covered. i don't know who was the dead person but my brother was carrying it alone smilingly. After couple of weeks, he had a heart attack, was hospitalised and died after two months in the hospital.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Then just 2 weeks ago,  I saw a dead body of a known person. Ghusl preparation is going on, I see water boiling for her ghusl. And now, she is hospitalized. A little critical.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Sometimes, I am searching for my things in my dream which i dont find or have a lost feeling in my dream. Within couple of days, I hear death news from someone. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I am quite disturbed with all these dreams. What could be the reason for such dreams? Please make dua and provide guidance.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">JazakAllahu Khairan!"</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Please make dua for me and family.

Gold key
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In my dream I saw my friend and the person she wants to marry come over to my house. It was after fajr because the sun was rising while they were hanging out in the backyard. There I saw him give her a golden key- it shaped like ribbon on the top and was the slightly bigger then regular keys. He gave it go her saying this is our new house key. And she was joyous at hearing this. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">That was the end of the dream </span></p>

I was just talking about the state of our marriage and how it's been. My wife was telling me to stop. I told her I wasn't going to put up with her behavior anymore and her disrespect towards me. I never had any intention of divorce at this time. I was just telling her I was done with her behavior.

I know that intention in these statements is what matters but I also read somewhere that divorce is also determined by the circumstance one Is in, and if the conversation is about divorce then the intention will not matter, unless the husband is adamant and 100 percent sure there was no intention. I am a bit confused. Could you please help? JazakAllah Khair.</span></p>

Sometimes , the builder may not give permission to sell before completion, so you will not have any option but to go for normal mortgage (we do not have islamic mortage in our state) So is it permissible to take mortgage if the builder does not allow to sell again, and as soon as the mortgage is approved we can try to sell it within 2 months?  It's completely his choice to decide whether to give permission or no, most of the builders give but some may not. Please guide. </span></p>

Qaza Roza
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamu alaikum,</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I have question about Qaza roza for Ramzan. I planned on keeping a Qaza roza for one of my previously missed Ramzan fasts. Fajr here is at 6.05am and I woke up at 5.35am but I then went back to sleep with the intention of keeping Qaza roza if I wake up before Fajr time/Sehri time (this is what I remember but not completely sure). </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">However I woke up at 6.35am. I heard from another Mufti that for Qaza roza, if one changes his intention of fasting before Suhoor, the fast is not considered valid as the neeyat was not made to fast whole heartedly. I am not completely sure if I made neeyat of fasting even if I went to sleep at 5.35am.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">So my question is: Should I have still carried on the day as if I was fasting? Also, what should one do if it was supposed to be a qaza roza (assuming you said yes to my previous question) but one eats/drinks as if there is no fast. Should I just keep a Qaza for the broken Qaza or do I need to make kaffarah for this broken Qaza roza?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Please advice for the sake of Allah.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Jazakallah khair.</span></p>

Daughters marriage

We have been seeking proposals since 3 years but nothing is working out or going forward. Sometimes the proposal goes to second step and we think it will work out but it doesn't go further and no response comes from other side. My daughter is well educated. She has very good manners and has a good balance between deen and dunya. I am a widow and I am very worried all the time regarding my daughter. I don't know what to do or what my daughter can do to solve this problem. I am worried if this is due to nazar(evil eye), jealousy or black magic.  Please help! Jazakallah khair. </span></p>

But I will teach her tabligh instead!! so these wasawis keep running in my mind and sometimes i had to fight myself and I did not have any intention to leave her and I love her so much.

Divorce & Alimony Questions
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> </span><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamu Alaikum</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I live in USA and have been married for 21 years and have five kids from this wife. I have married to another women in 2016 and have one kid from her. Since then I'm splitting my nights between them and paying all the expenses of both houses. I buy all groceries, pay for clothing, pay all bills (phone, electric, gas, water, internet etc).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My first wife has filed with court for Divorce (didn't receive any paperwork from court), Alimony (Spousal Support) and Chil Support.</span></p> <p><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I have few questions and need writted fatawa in Urdu or English (English if possible).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">1. According to USA law if there is a divorce case pending in the court, wife can ask for Alimony Pendente Lite from me, which is kind of support for my wife during the divorce case for her personal expenses which is about 25% of my net monthly income. Court ordered me to pay her $1200 per month based on my income, this is only for her expenses while case is in the court and after divorce is settled there will be Alimony which is almost same amount that I would need to pay her every month for next 10 years or so. Court said that I have to pay her $1200/month and also have to keep paying for all home expenses.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My question is, is it halal for her to get this money from me through the court while I was and am still paying all the expenses of my house including food, clothing, bills etc.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2. After divorce is finalized, court will issue another order to keep paying my wife Alimony for next 10 years or so, according to Sharia how long should I pay her expenses and kids expenses. Is it halal for her to take her expenses from me through court for next 10 years?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">3. After divorce is finalized, court will order about Child Custody and Child Support. I would be ordered to pay expenses of my children that are under the age of 18 years old. According to Sharia how long and how much I should be paying for the expenses of my children? Does she has right to claim Child Custody according to Sharia? My children are 7, 10, 15 and 17 years old.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">4. During the divorce my wife can claim half of the my all assests (cash, properties, business etc) that were build during my marriage. Is it halal for her to take half of my wealth through court order?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">5. Because I didn't receive any paperwork of divorce from court yet, my lawyer told me to file for divorce even you didn't get anything from my wife yet. It will change Spousal Support application to Alimony Pendente Lite which will reduce my total length of Alimony. Divorce case is not yet stared, does my filing of divorce count as Shari divorce or it won't count until court makes a decision?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">6. Once court order of divorce is finalized, will it count as one divorce? will she be my wife according to Sharia?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I will appreciate if you can answer it, may Allah reward you in abundance.</span></p>

Inheritance
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">We are 11 siblings (4 brothers + 4 sisters from my mother, 2 elder brothers + 1 elder sister from second mother, same father). My father was old and had no source of income when I migrated to USA. I started sending remittance to my father for family support. I sent money to my father as gift, making him full owner. With that money, my father bought 2 houses: our family home and a rental property.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My father legally registered one house (where our family currently lives) to 2 brothers and other house (rental property) to other 2 brothers. Even though my brothers were legal owners, but my father kept full control of both properties (repair, rent etc).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My father passed away 5 years ago and my real mother is still alive. Now we plan to sell the rental property. Here are few questions:</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">1.       Will the house sale amount be distributed to 2 brothers who legally own the property OR will it be distributed to my mother and all children of my father (including my step brothers and sister)?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">2.       What should happen to the 2nd home (our family home) where my mother and one younger brother lives with his wife? We are not planning to sell that home in near future. Should that be sold and distributed as well similar to the other property? My brother who lives there takes care of our mother and has no job or source of income.</span></p>

Words of divorce
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">if a husband says to his wife, 'stop doing such and such an action otherwise I will give you a divorce'. Does divorce happen if she does those actions? The intention was to show frustration and say that the words of divorce might come out in anger if she continues to do that. The intention was not to give divorce based on that condition. If divorce does happen in this case what should a person do to retract it?</span></p>

But then my scarf starts to slip off and some of my hair shows and I feel bad about that. <br />I had a similar dream once before so I was wondering about it.

Obligation on spending on family and Israf
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: abbas;">There is a hadith which says, "You and your wealth belong to your father". But I also know that whatever woman spends on her family is sadaqa and she is not oligated to spend on her husband and kids. I have one question in this context.</span></p> <ol> <li style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: abbas;">Does that mean this hadith applies to sons only?</span></li> </ol> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: abbas;">I am unmarried in my 30s. I make sure that I spend wholeheartedly on my parents and family and ensure they get whatever they wish for. But at times it gets extravagant to the point of Israaf. While I do not mind, I also want to ensure I do make good savings just to prepare myself for uncertain times ahead and my school tuition. But this sometimes makes my mother feel, "you have to think for spending on your mom?". So, am I being a sinner for having to think and plan about uncertain future times, school tuition and avoid Israaf only because that would hurt my mother?</span></p>

My mother loves my brother dearly and I noticed that if I dont buy him expensive gifts she gets upset to the extent that she does not wish to take any expensive present that I'd like to give her. So my question is am I obligated to spend exhorbitantly on my brother only because if I don't then that would upset my mother and I would be a sinner?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Thanks.</span></p>

Legal Separation
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalam u Alaikum,<br />I wanted to know if legal separation is allowed in Islam.<br />I am going through a lot of marital problems including verbal and physical abuse and no financial support from my husband for several years now. I have three kids and I have been supporting them by myself for more than 10 years. I also have a lot of emotional abuse from my husband since he does not get along with anybody and always suspicious of others trying to harm him, that includes family, friends and neighbors. Despite me assuring him that nobody is after him, he has filed police reports aginst friends and neighbors.<br />I want to end the relationship, but I am debating between divorce and legal separation.<br />If somebody can help me answer whether legal separation is acceptable in Islam, I would be grateful. <br />JazakAllah</span></p>

Everything was going well, i always toped the school, won competitions got selected to the most selective college. My family was happy and above all my connection with Allah was good. But suddenly everything went south. I got suspended from the college, i couldn't study, i also ran away from my house, always have a wish to die, although pray 5 times a day but dont feel the connection with Allah i had before, always plan to read the quran but never touched it for a year, am addicted to pornography. I dont know how why this happened. The only thing i know is that some relatives grew jealous and My mother always feared them because they (the relative) have a background of aamils and peers and magic stuff. I also saw a video on YouTube of a mufti saying these conditions happen when you are under a jinn. I start my day with high hopes, to study, to work, to do something for the people the muslim ummah but end it in regret, wastage, sin. Ive always wanted to be a shaheed. Never done bad to anyone. Always had a pure heart. Why did this all happen to me? Now I am hopeless. My connection with Allah is destroyed. My future is destroyed. All i want to do now is kill myself. Although it is haram but still its better to do a single sin once and for all instead of a daily sin isnt it? I just want to die. Help me molana. Please help me. I have a family to feed and expectations to full fill. Help me. </span></p>

In this procedure, a stem cell serum is injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth. This has a 93% success rate which I was informed is very good and there are no alternatives to this besides hair transplant (which is major surgery). I understand that using stem cells harvested from other humans is Haram, but given my condition, is there any leeway?

Divorce Question
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalam o alaikum . I have one child from the marriage who is 12 years old. The events that led up to me filing for divorce was that my ex -wife had left the house of marriage  in Feb 2018 without my consent with my ex in laws. The day she left I was physically attacked by my ex brother in law and false accusations of physical abuse were put on me in front of witnesses. I consulted with my father he said try to reconcile so I asked the uncle of the wife if he can help. Her uncle upon hearing everything then decided that I should pay her $2000 a month and also that there will be indefinite separation between the two of you  and that the two of you will not talk to each other and he said you can just come every two weeks to pick up your son for a day and then leave him back without saying anything and just keep paying your wife.. I did not agree to that . I  paid her money for son $2000 a month and then due to depression I lost my job so I cut down the amount to $1000 after an entire year of not hearing anything back from my ex- wife or my ex - in laws I asked my father again as to what should be my course of action he referred me to a religious scholar  . After reaching out to him my initial attempt  was to reconcile. Yes there were some disagreements that me and my ex wife had but I never physically or verbally abused her. So in order to attempt to reconcile I tried to get those answers but I failed and things being said were not going to do any good but do harm so I asked the religious scholar to help in getting a divorce settlement. Based on the income my child support per N.Y state law was calculated to about $1200 a month but I decided to pay $1500 as I thought it would be beneficial .my ex wife demanded alimony and I said I am already giving child support more than state law but she insisted and the religious scholar said that since you guys cannot come to an agreement I will decide if you give me permission me and her both gave him permission. The divorce was filed in Feb 2020 and issued in Feb 2021 she continues to live with her parents and siblings with my son. It really bothers me that the religious scholar has decided that on top of Child Support I have to pay my ex wife $500 dollar alimony as well .He also has decided that if I ever lose my job I will be required to disclose all my assets and show that I cannot support my child. He also decided that my brother will be responsible if I do not pay the money.  Now after one year I have to move on so I asked if we can re negotiate on the visitation and financial matters of my son I have no problem paying as long as it is just and I can afford. It seems as though they are persistent in going after me they said they will not talk to me until I provide my 2018 , 2019 , 2020 Tax returns.. So please I would like to know what is your take on all of the above and is there any fatwa I can get in terms of Alimony validity as well.</span></p>

property that may have been bought with insurance money
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">If someone's father worked as a marketing manager in a healh insurance company and bought a house-the children do not know what exact money was used to buy the house. They don't know any details about the salary of the father when he was working in the health insurance company. they only know that at the time that the house was bought their father was working in health insurance as a marketing manager. then after a few years the father left that job and began earning a halal income. It has been ten years or even more that the father has been earning from halal income. The original house bought has been recently given in rent to a family, and the father and his family have moved to a new house. Now one of the children is wondering whether the original house that was bought when the father was working in the health insurance company is halal or not? will the children be able to inherit that property? Will the children be able to live in that property if their father gifts it to them? The details of how the original house was bought are unknown and the child will not interrogate her father because she respects him and he has been earning a completely halal income for many years. Many years of living in the original house were spent while the father was earning a completely halal income. the father has been earning a completely halal income for 10-15 years but the child is having waswaas and confusion about whether the house that was bought while he was working in insurance would be halal for the kids to use in the future. Also when it comes to wealth, can the children assume that majority of the father's wealth is from halal income because he has been working through lawful means for many years? the child is having waswaas and confusion about future issues that may come up regarding inheritance because of the father had once been working in a health insurance company. can the children assume now that everything is lawful ever since the father switched his job? the old house and any wealth he has in cash is all lawful? the children will not interrogate their father about his old job in health insurance and inquire whether his salary was pure or not. they can't do so out of love and respect for him. he is a very pious man and this shows through the fact that he did not stay in that job and completely switched to a halal earning for many many years. </span></p>

Inheritance Matter
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> The younger brother of a friend of mine with name Dawood bought a house in 1998. He had to get the home mortgaged and for that, the house had to be in name of both Dawood himself and his wife, Zulekha.Thus the house was titled in name of dawood and Zulekha, Not as joint tenants but as TENANTS BY ENTIRETY (To know what Tenants by entirety is,you may have to look up on Internet)</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Dawood's wife Zulekha never worked. The only source of income in the family was whatever Dawood earned in his life. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Now dawood's health is worsonning, therfore, Dawood's elder brother advised his nephews (Dawood's three sons) that if Their father does not recover and dies, the whole house being Dawood's heritance it needs to be distributed between their mother, Zulekha and three sons, as per Sharia regulations. But, the sons are of the opinion of that after the death of their father, the property should be put in "TRUST" and it should be distributed only after the death of their mother, Zulekha. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In light of above background;</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">The Question precisely is: CAN THE DISTRIBUTION OF INHERTANCE BE WITHHELD OR POSTPONED, FOR AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME BETWEEN THE DEATH OF hUSBAND AND WIFE?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> </span></p>

Khula vs talaaq
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">If the wife initiates divorce and ask for her husband's agreeance and he refuses saying that he would never give a divorce and to seek other means to do so, if the wife had a right to ask for a divorce due to being refused her rights and infidelity, first does he have the right to refuse, and second does it become a talaq because he refused to agree that day but eventually divorces a couple days later after he doesn't come home and she puts his things out saying she would send him the paperwork to finalize everything.? Wouldn't that still be considered a khula since she was forced to seek elsewhere because he wouldn't agree at first? If he only divorced her because she was putting his things out because he refused to divorce her, come home, and entertaining a woman that was not halal, is that still considered a divorce or an annulment?</span></p>

Sadaqah nazar (manat)
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Asalamualaikum. <br />My husband and I had made a manat to donate some amount of money for a purpose. When that purpose was fulfilled due to the Mercy of Allah we started to donate that amount. Mostly we went to websites of Masjids and selected Sadaqah donation from their menu and donated that way. To one masjid my husband told me that he donated some amount in the form of Zakat. We also gave some to a family who needed money for 2 of their daughters weddings and people around us told us that they are eligible for sadaqah, though they have a house, own a tv and possibly some gold, but are financially weak.</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">The issue is that I just read somewhere that sadaqah nazar can only be given to the same categories of people that are eligible for zakat. I wanted to know if our sadaqah that we have given so far mentioned above is valid or not?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">If not do we have to repay it or pay kaffarah or do both?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> </span></p>

One of my friend also invited me to join FLP company, please tell me whether I should join it or not???</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">The other Muftis are saying it is haram as our deoband futwa board has verdicted this as Haram… but some are saying FLP is giving you money with out ur efforts(bagair mehnat).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">The direct marketing business model that FLP uses doesn’t raise any concerns. Also the products that they sell are categorized as health and beauty, so there’s nothing of concern there either. This company is legally operating in many countries for several years so it doesn’t appear to be a scam. <strong>it has halal certificate</strong>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">after free registration under sponsorship of a person who is making me to join through his id, company is giving us their products (aloevera contained-health products) with some discount to sell/recommend them in general public.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Steps or levels we have to pass in order to achieve different status/level in company</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">1) we have to buy products at least 5000 and sell them.

I want a Khula
<p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I am a 28 year old woman Muslim sister. I come from a Jamaat family and am active in the work Alhamdullilah. I am currently married to my third husband. My first marriage was influenced by my mother's pushing. My second marriage, I liked him but he didn't like me. They both were trying to get a green card from me. The men in my family did not help me find a husband because they either refused to help and/or are incompetent at picking suitable husbands. My life has been like one experiment gone wrong after another. I have been married to my current husband since 2019. When I married my husband, I was not physically attracted to him but I married him out of family pressure. My previous husband was much larger physically and so I was not attracted to my current husband. After the honeymoon, he was not able to make me climax. I told him I didn't want to continue but he begged to keep the marriage and give him another chance. I gave him another opportunity and things temporarily became somewhat better. However when I moved states to live with him, things turned worse. He became sick and his stomach wasn't working well so he wasn't performing well sexually. I wanted to leave again but he told me to stay again. He said he would work out and get stronger. But he's always busy with something. Its been 2 and a half years now I am in this marriage. My husband is not able to satisfy me. Every climax I have gotten ever since July 2019 is from a toy. I am left to take care of my needs with toys which I hate. I feel so guilty afterwards and it just feels wrong and embarrassing. I don't want to stay with my husband anymore because he's not giving me what I need as a wife. I feel like I am a single woman. I just want to be free to find a husband more suitable for me. </span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I want a Khula but I don't know how to do that. I have loaned my husband my dowry money and more than that when we were going through a financial situation. I've tried giving him money but he told me that I could leave and not pay him because he owes me money. I don't know how this works. </span></p>

Divorce
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">asalaamualikum.  I'm writing just to get a clarification on where my nikkah stands with my husband. We have been arguing for a few months now and family got involved. Since then, things have been not too good between us. His brother wouldn't even let me communicate with my husband and our distance grew. I discussed to do marriage counseling but he refused at the time because of our heated argument. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">We separated for 3 months since June 2021. He sent me legal separation documents a few weeks ago which I have yet to sign. I went to his house to get my belongings on Monday September 13. There, after a heated argument with his dad, his dad told him to relieve me from the marriage and divorce me 3 times.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">So, my husband said he divorced me 3 times in front of our witnesses in that one setting. This was his first time ever saying that. We both never really had the chance to talk things through because family was involved. Does this count as 1 divorce pronouncement or is our nikkah islamically over?</span></p>

Healing with Marijuana
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Salams, I am 25 years old. I have been dealing with anxiety and depression majority of my life. I have overcome self-harm and anorexia in my teenage years. But in just the past two years, I had a rough patch and gained a little over 100 pounds. As a result, my health obviously declined drastically. What makes matters worse is that I struggle with lipodema, PCOS, and Hasimotos hypothyroidism. Most days, it's almost impossible to get out of bed. I have chronic pain now in my joints, mainly my knees which makes it difficult to exercise (sometimes, even to walk) and that aides my depression. I know it sounds like excuses but I feel like I tried everything. A few months ago a friend told me how she used edible marijuana to cope with her issues from her doctor and introduced me to it. I tried it and felt great results. I was able to move without pain which helped me exercise and it also boosted my mood. The doses I take never interfere with my life or my prayer, I am able to function normally, socially as well. I do not have a prescription for this because it's taboo in my family so I can't get it directly from a doctor. Recently, I read somewhere that weed is the same as alcohol in Islam. My question is, is this true? Is me taking edible marijuana to self-meditate the same as drinking and is thus prescribed the same punishment (40 days no accepted prayer)? Or is it just a sin? Or is it acceptable, in my case? Which of the three? Thank you.</span></p>

Taking health insurance from US while living in Bangladesh
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I currently live in Bangladesh. My father suffers from Liver Cirrhosis. I have plans to do Masters or PhD from USA. It is recommended for my father to do liver transplant. But Currently I liver transplant is not available in Bangladesh. And in India it will cost 1-1.5 crore Bangladeshi Taka(currency), which  the cost is out of my reach. When I start PhD in US will it me permissible for me to buy an insurance for my father, take him to US and do the liver transplant and then send him back to Bangladesh? Currently I couldn’t find any Takaful Health Insurance in US. And don't know how the rest of the insurance work there might be be riba and qimar. So will it be permissible in case like this? Can I call it dire need and buy insurance for him and take him to US? Cuz without the treatment he might suffer a lot and die within short span.(May Allah give him long life)</span><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Also suggest me if there is any halaal health insurance in USA</span></p>

Custody
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> Salaam alaikum,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I am interested in learning about Islamic ruling on the custody of children once parents divorce. Who gets the custody, mother or father? Does it differ, and does it change over time based on the gender of the child/children and the age of the child/children?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Also, if the woman (mother and the ex-wife) remarries, how does that affect the custody?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Thank you in advance,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Mirza</span></p>

Is investing in 529 funds permissible in Islam
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged investment vehicle in the United States designed to encourage saving for the future higher education expenses of a designated beneficiary. The amount we save in this fund is tax free. As we pay high tuition fee in private islamic schools, this fund will save us a lot every year in taxes. My yearly tuition fees for my 3 kids is around $15000. If we make use of this funds, we could save $3000 in taxes every year. The only catch here is that we dont have control on where our money is invested. It is like mutual funds. They may invest our money in Bonds or any company that do not do Halal business. Can our ulema guide us in this topic.</span></p>

Riba / Interest ?

They claim to charge a “service fee” of 2 %. The question is that do this “service fee” come under riba / interest ? </span></p> <p><span style="text-decoration: underline; font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong>Detail :  </strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">A company (shipper/broker) has some goods (load) to be moved from point A to point B. A Truck Driver can do that. Due to time involved in Finding the shipper/broker, doing the paperwork, followup on payment etc the driver hires a dispatching company which does all this for him for a service fee.( usually 12%). The dispatching company pays the driver weekly for his work. But the shipper/broker pays the dispatching company in 30-45 days. This weekly payment to the driver(s) can go in thousands of dollars and also to secure the payment from the shipper/broker a factoring company is hired by the dispatcher. The factoring company pays the dispatching company the money instantly and they goes to the shipper/broker and collect the money in 30-45 days. For this service it chargers a service fee ( usually 2.5%) . Is this money ( 2.5%) riba/interest ? </span></p> <p><br /><span style="text-decoration: underline; font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong>Argument: </strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">A person goes to withdraw money from a bank atm which is not the bank he does banking with. The bank gives him the money instantly, they goes to his bank and gets the money from his bank and for this service they charge him a fixed amount or percentage whichever is greater. In both cases (atm and factoring) either they are both ribs or both are not ribs. </span></p> <p><br /><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Please guide me on this matter. جزاك الله خير اًواحسن الجزاء فی الدنیاوالاخرہ</span></p> <p> </p>

Was this a sign by Allah?
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Years ago, I had OCD obsession with regards to predicting who I would marry and possible hypersexuality due to a number of conditions. I prayed sincerely to Allah believing in his utmost oneness and omnipotence, and reminding myself of his power and with convinction of tawheed and that Allah alone cold solve my problems, I prayed to Allah for a sign in a dream to ease my burdens, since I normally liked to know my future due to many crisis in youth and wanting to not be caught by surprise and wanting to keep things under control, for fear the unknown was scary. I saw a dream, and I saw that a young woman I went to school with was jumping at me. I was not satisfied, but later was intrigued, but did not believe such a sign would be so obvious as I had imagined. Later, it turned out, according to my descriptions of her to a respected therapist, that she seemed to admire me. we went our separate ways, but if I ever wanted to marry her when I have more resources and mental stability and when she finishes her studies, i can contact her father through the masjid. how should we interpret when we seek answers and it seems like allah is giving us answers? was it a nafsaani or rahmaani dream? she is graduating at around the same time i will likely be financially stable.</span></p>

My question is does my father have right to give it to second oldest brother since my mother's tarka was used in buying first house?

How do I stop masturbating?
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I have stopped watching video porn, which was a compulsive habit of mine, but now I look at images of women in bikinis or non sexually intended images of beautiful women, usually which appear as ads on websites, and I cant help but click and masturbate, and I have a slight obsession with the website pinterest, because I can obtain thousands upon thousands of "tame" images with fine details based on how I search it, and I look at dozens of images while I masturbate. I initially began giving up as part of a movement on the internet called "nofap" which is a non muslim run site which seeks to stop porn addiction and compulsive masturbation often for health benefits or better mental health or even attractiveness to women by analogy, and that was why i did it, but many also do it for religious reasons though proselytization or discussion of religion is discouraged except in the subforums for religious groups called "muslimnofap" "christiannofap" etc. but now I realize i should be doing this to please Allah. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">however i fear i will not be able to do it. i need internet for work and school, and i also use the internet to obtain islamic interpretations for my dreams, but the two sites often contain triggering ads, and seem to contain any ads google sends them, and i also like to learn in my free time and often run across this. i am also an internet addict. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">so it is not as simple as getting rid of the internet. what should i do?</span></p>

Divorce Question
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamualaikum Respected Scholar,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My ex-wife was from a different state, and after she left my home without permission, from her state my ex-wife filed a restraining order against me based on false accusations. The order forbade any contact or communication with her whatsoever. Even though I had not made any contact with her since she left our home some weeks ago. I was unable to fight this restraining order because I couldn't travel out of state due to my financial situation. I still didn't have an intention to end our marriage but at the advice of my Father, I spoke with a Divorce Attorney in my state, who actually disclosed to me that my ex-wife had also contacted him. I was shocked to hear this, and because now it was clear to me that my ex-wife wanted to end our marriage, I decided to submit to the court a "Petition for Dissolution of Marriage" in my home state. This was to avoid having to travel to my ex-wife's state for court proceedings in case further false accusations were made against me.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">The "Petition for Dissolution of Marriage" is a formal request to the court to end the marriage. But, I didn't view this as a Talaq. I filed the petition to the court and my attorney then sent it to my ex-wife. Then the next step as part of this process was that through our respective attorneys my ex-wife and I negotiated a "Marital Settlement Agreement". All her material belongings were returned to her. The Marital Settlement Agreement has broad legal language. In this Agreement we had agreed to the division of any financial assets as well as released each other from all other claims.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong>We came to an agreement through our lawyers that she would keep the jewelry, and I would also not have to pay her anything.</strong> <strong>Finally, my ex-wife signed and notarized this document first,</strong> after which I signed this Marital Settlement Agreement. This Agreement was then made part of my case. My lawyer presented everything to the Judge, and the Judge finalized and approved the divorce. I viewed this entire occurrence as a Khula since my ex-wife had herself left our home and legally forbade me from contacting her. Furthermore we had made an agreement after I petitioned the court for Dissolution of Marriage that I would not have to pay her the mahr, and she wouldn't have to return the jewelry. <strong>But I would like to know what is the religious verdict, and want to know if I should still pay her the Mahr, even though we had a Marital Settlement Agreement which she agreed to and signed first.</strong></span></p>

It should be known that he left our marital home on his own account in 2019 since then there has been incidents of rage and fear induction that has lead to protection orders. Even with these things I have tried to remain married Islamicly. At this point I am realizing that these things are reoccurring and increasing in frequency. I have made insttakarrah about remaing married to him and the very next day an incident occurred. He has verbally divorced me twice in addition to this I have a legal divorce from him. He is not finacially responsable for me or our 2 children together. My question is are we still married Islamicly? If so how can I get an Islamic divorce? Insha Allah</span></p>

Can my wife restrict me from occasionally travelling for work?

I have just completed my PhD and have been trying to secure a job, in this COVID affected hostile job market. I am being considered for a Postdoctoral research job which is outside of my country, and due to family obligations I have told the employer that I cannot permanently relocate outside my country. So we are in the middle of negotiations on some remote working solution. One possibility of remote working can be that initially I would go there for joining, bank account opening etc. and then I will probably need to go to the other country only if needed. Now my wife is saying that she does not allow me to travel and stay there for one week if my employer needs me. So my question is that can my wife restrict me from going away for work for short periods of time? can she prohibit me from joining a job which is halal.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Please guide me on this</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">JazakAllah Khair</span></p>

My sister was just sitting and eating food. I had a baby elephant with me that was trying to take to the basement. The elephant was calm and not resisting. My mom came down from the 2nd floor and was giving me a rope to use to take the elephant down.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Last night, I slept after praying tahajjud and fajr, and I had a dream in which my sister and I were dropping my mom off to her house. My mom left the car. I looked across the street from her house and say 7-8 baby elephants (they were very small, like 12 inches in size) lying in a driveway. I got excited and told my sister to look at the cute little elephants and then I saw a black short cobra slitheren from in between the elephants. I asked my sister to turn the car around and saw the snake slithering away across the road. My mom wasn't there anymore, she was inside the house already. We passed by the baby elephants again and I started wondering if they are sleeping or dead. And then I woke up all of a sudden at 6:20am.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">My mother said she also recently saw a snake in her dream, and since the past 2-3 weeks she has been having anxiety, fatigue, and a lot of pain in her legs (she has arthritis but this pain is exaggerated).</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">We are a little scated about what these dreams mean. Your assistance is much appreciated. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">JazakAllah khair</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">i had a few dreams where I was reciting fatiha surah quite clearly. In one, I was facing a foggy mirror. In the other I was in the dark but there some lights seen in the background. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I saw a dictionary interpretation for this dream in Turkish and it said I would marry a few women. I am unable to practice polygamy due to the culture in which I live and my personality. I feared this would mean I would have multiple divorces or my wives would die in a serious of deaths. I prefer the latter over the former because I prefer separation through them crossing to the afterlife over us arguing constantly because I grew up in a family with a history of turmoil. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">But even the latter scares me, as I have experienced loss in my life and even with Islamic knowledge and prayer it is hard to cope. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> </span></p> <p> </p>

Marriage Problem
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamaolaikeum,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I live in California and married for the past one and a half year. Ever since we have been living together, I found my wife texting on the phone more than often and with her back towards me on a number of occasions.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">At first I kept ignoring her actions, but it was a real torture and pain for me to see her texting on the phone and ignoring me. It came to the point where she would be looking over her shoulders while texting and with her back towards me. Last week I took the courage and asked her who she was texting and took her phone from her. I found a long chain of messages until last year January (that I can confirm) with a guy. I asked her who he was and she got confrontational and told me it was her friend from her Master's program back in Chicago. I kept my cool. She left home the following night. Later on I got to know that it was her gay friend and she had been in close friendship with him for the last 3 years. I also saw a few pictures from him. She never wanted to accept her mistake and left home, and went back to Chicago to her family.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I'm in tremendous pain and shock right now. She has blocked me from everywhere. I'm having a hard time coming to a decision. I tried patching things up but she puts forward a condition that I would have to agree on marriage counselling before she would talk to me. It was all her fault. Now she says she would stop talking to her friend.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">What does Islam say about living with such a wife? Can there be any reconciliation possible and if yes, then what should be the terms put forward by me? Should I give her a second chance? Do you think I should strart a family with a wife that accepts homosexuality and close friendships with such people?</span></p>

Additional details about dream
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In my dream I asked about where my pee mixed with a man, I was afraid the man would be mad at me for interacting with his daughter (not granddaughter) who is as old as my mother, and after we peed together, some drops seemed to fall to the ground, and I worried they would but it seemed cartoonish in that it didn't seem to matter. and they seemed to stay midair regardless. I then compared the mixing to when I would put water in my mouth while laying in a bath full of water, and for fun, spit it across the bathtub at a sponge laying above me, and the dream ended. </span></p>

Tv show
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I was seeing a show which showed a saying that nuh diyor peygamber demiyor that means they say noah not prophet   In Turkey it is used for someone who is stubborn . Is it right to use it or is it kufr?? One more thing i saw was that a non Muslim woman married a  muslim man and then came to his town she saw camel slaughtering and fainted in shock was it mocking of religion?? After that she became muslim married that man again and adapted the culture happily.  The genre was rom-com .</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Both things appeared on same channel if any of these are offensive to religon or if they are kufr so,  are the actors working in other dramas of this channel also responsible for kufr?? These 2 shows were from separate production house but same channel.</span></p> <p style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I am a follower of Hanafi fiqh.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> </span></p>

Menstruation question
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamualaikum. My question is regarding menstruation.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">For ease of understanding I've divided my periods in 3 stages</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Stage</strong> 1: Spotting for 2-3 days </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Every month before my period starts, I see spotting for 2 or 3 days. I see this only when using the washroom. Also, while wiping, it is visible on the tissue. It is not seen on the liner. I describe spotting as any discolored(pinkish or brownish) discharge.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Now, this spotting is very irregular, suppose I see it at the time of zuhr today, I see it again in Isha or the Asr of next day. This happens for 2 or 3 days.( sometimes its visible at all times and sometimes its irregular as stated above) </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Stage</strong> 2: Regular brown discharge </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">After 3 days, I see regular brownish discharge, this is regularly seen on the liner.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"><strong>Stage</strong> 3: Regular bleeding </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;"> After this, my regular bleeding starts followed by brown regular discharge for a day or 2. This lasts for 5 days. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In short, spotting is for 3 days, and brown discharge for 2 or 3 days and bleeding is a total of 5 days (this again includes brown discharge on the last 2 days) </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">The clean period between 2 cycles is 22-23 days. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">My question is:</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">1) what should be done during the time of spotting stage 1? Can I pray in this situation with fresh wudu everytime?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">2)In stage 2 should I pray when I see the regular brown discharge for 3 days on the liner? Or my salah will be invalid?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">3) sometimes after my regular bleeding stops, I wait till my brown discharge also stops, and I am clean again to take a bath. After taking a bath and praying one or 2 prayers I again see the spotting. In this case, should I take a bath again?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Kindly help me with this, as I am very confused.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">JazakAllah khair! </span></p>

My father passed away suddenly few years back and while he was alive he had mentioned to us that he wanted to build a mosque in his mothers name. At the time of his death, the money we recieved from his work were distributed via Shariah rules. During the distribution we had kept aside some of his money to one day build a mosque in his mothers name to fulfuill his wish. We put the money in certificate of deposit (CD) which will be maturing in 2022. Recently we had a land available to buy and build a mosque in a needy area. If the CD is cashed out prematurely there would be a find of upto 20% which is a significant loss. Is it appropriate to make other arrangements of the money we had set aside from my father's to build the mosque and make the intention that due to the money being unavaible to use, we put forth our money in exchange of the CD? </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">Please advise as soon as you can.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">JazakAllah Khayrun.</span></p>

If yes then if I touch my clothes with this hand will they also become napak?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Is the place that is used to hang impure clothes before they are washed becomes napak even though the place itself is dry. If I touch that place will the impurity be transferred to my hands?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">If there is a very small hole in my pants or shalwar having diameter of less than 2-3 cm in the region which is suppose to cover my awrah then will my prayer be valid if I wore those clothes in my Salah? </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">I think a lot about purity and impurity for example: I will look for spots on the toilet seat and on the bathroom floor and if I find a very small spot of diameter of 1-2 cm having brownish Colour or any other Colour I will think whether it is impurity or not. Furthermore, I will also keep on thinking whether I touched it or not.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Kindly help me overcome these thoughts.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt;">Jazakallah</span></p>

Amazon Selling

Suppose I’m the seller. I can then provide product ranking services in which what I do is firstly, I give away products for free to people(I refund them after they make purchase on amazon) by approaching them using facebook ads and redirecting them to our product on amazon to make amazon think that the product is getting a lot of sales hence they keep moving the product from the 100th page to 30th, 20th 10th and so on (we donot ask for reviews so it is just a simple promotional giveaway to make amazon think the product sells well). Is this method halal?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Regards. </span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Respected Mufti sb,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamu 'Alaikum. Hope you are in good health by the grace of Allah swt. I wanted to ask whether selling our products on Amazon is halal, given the fact that Amazon is involved in business contacts with organizations that are complicit in human rights violations like the Israeli Defense Forces. Israel has also selected Amazon Web Services for a $ 1 billion plus project to deliver a public cloud infrastructure for the country's government ministries and defense forces.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Secondly, I would have to source (buy ) my products from Alibaba, a Chinese tech company, and then send it to Amazon to sell. There are reports that Alibaba's website allows it's clients to use its software to detect the faces of Uighur Muslims and as we are aware Chinese government is brutally torturing the Uighur Muslims in the indoctrination camps.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">So is doing business on Amazon and sourcing our products from Alibaba halal? Also, this was confusing for me as we are not directly involved in the persecution of Muslims.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Jazak Allahu Khairan</span></p>

Question Regarding cryptocurrency XRP
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamu Alaikum,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Hope everyone is well by the grace of Allah (SWT).</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My question is regarding XRP. XRP is the native cryptocurrency for products developed by Ripple Labs. Its products are used for payment settlement, asset exchange, and remittance systems that work more like SWIFT, a service for international money and security transfers used by a network of banks and financial intermediaries. XRP is pre-mined and uses a less complicated method of mining as compared to Bitcoin.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">XRP is not same as Bitcoin. So would it be halal or permissible to invest in XRP?</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">JazakAllau Khair</span></p>

Student loan question
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">As Salamu Alaykum,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I have a question about the Islamic perspective on student loans. I am a first generation premed student and when I attended undergrad at Loyola University Chicago, I had the idea that anything with interest is haram, but as long as you pay it fast, you should be fine. I recently graduated with my Masters in Biomedical sciences from Midwestern University and I was told by a family member living in Germany that student loans are absolutely haram due to the interest and it is one of the major sins. My plan has always been to apply to medical school as my next goal in life, InshAllah and my intention is to serve Allah Swt and give back to our ummah and take care our Muslim female patients. however, now I am a bit confused on what decision to make regarding student loans being haram. That is why I am writing to you to get your scholarly advice on this matter, InshAllah. When I was in undergrad I was unaware of the idea of student loans being absolutely haram and a major sin, but my family told me before I started my Masters program about it and I was too ignorant to accept it. Now that I completed my Masters program, I am reflecting and I really want to do the right thing for Allah SWT and if it is haram to take loans (and additional loans) for medical school, then I would rather change my career path that does not involve haram interest and that is more pleasing to Allah SWT. Since I am a first generation student, my parents are immigrants here and they did not really have money saved for my education to help me. Additionally, due to schooling in the United States being so expensive, I had to take these student loans. I dont justify my actions, but I sincerely repent for my sins caused by my student loans. I am more mature (Alhamdulillah) and now I realize, whatever is displeasing to Allah swt, I want to stay away from it, Alhamdulillah. Please let me know if I should set an appointment to talk to you about this or would this email suffice. JazakAllahu Khayran for your time and help in looking into my matter of student loans and letting me know your opinion.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Sincerely,</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Fathima Mohideen</span></p>

There are some fatwas available at darulifta website, some states civil divorce doesnt invalidate islamic marriage and some says it does.

Almost all were dead we could just find the skulls of the dead. I was upset to what a death did my parents experience atleast had Covid been a reason may be Allah swt would have counted them in shaheed. We spoke to the management and got to know that the infrastructure is weak but still they were adding more levels to the apartments. The management had no regret to the lives that had been lost. Bodies were being taken to hospital and if they find someone whom they could save, they were just taking out organs and declaring them dead.</span></p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-family: Arial;"> </span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Asalam u alaikum, My mother passed away 13 yrs ago,, we are 3 brothers and 3 sisters. we just found that she had some gold that is in possession on one of my sister. My sister claims that my mother has told her to keep it for one of my brother who never married. But he is not aware of it either. Should this gold jewelry be divided accordi ng to Nisab or we should consider it as my brother's property? My sister who is holding it doesn't have any proof of mother giving her jewelry to keep. My other sister is saying that it was not my mother's intent to keep it just for one of my brothers. What should be done in this situation. JazakAllah khair.</span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Family Issue
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalam alaikum, My mother passed away last year and at that time my father promised us ( 5 siblings ) that he will stay with us here in USA . He, then said he has to go to Hyderabad, India to dispose off his lands, properties and will come back and live with us here. He went to India and immediately got re-married . Around the same time here in USA my younger brother had a dead child , his child was born dead . This left a deep animosity against our father. He did not even call us upon hearing the news because we did not specifically call to convey the news to him.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Few months down , he was unhappy with his new wife and initiated the process of divorce and one of my uncles called me saying his life is in danger from the new wife's brothers and so we agreed for him to come to USA and will sort out the issues we have. Now he is in USA but he is not making any efforts to reach out to my other siblings and my 2 elder siblings feels I should convince my father to resolve the issues with younger ones. We feel he  cannot just have normal cordial relationship with just one ignoring the rest. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My younger siblings are not ready to forgive father for breaking the trust. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Please advise, </span><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"> </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">JazakhAllah.</span></p>

Using Lab fund, Is it Halal or Haram?
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalam O Alikum Mohtram. I am a PhD student in Mechanical Engineering in Korea. Basically I am from Pakistan. I am facing one serious problem here.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">When I was being hired for studentship, one of the senior student from my lab told me my salary. (Prof. did not told me the terms and conditions.).I said ok. But when I came here, iIcame to know that Prof. is not giving me the full salary. He is playing game with me and my lab mates. My salary is coming from Government. But Prof. has created a virtual lab fund. This fund is managed by the students. Suppose i am taking 13 dollars salary from Government, I am supposed to keep 8 dollars and return 5 dollars to lab fund. Not all the students are getting money from government. So, lab fund is used to pay those lab students who are not getting money from Government. In actual, it is wrong according to the rules set by Government. In this situation, Prof is supposed to get some projects and help those students who are not getting Govt. salary. But my Prof. is not doing it. And he has already saved a lot of money in Univ account that can be used to fund those students who are not getting Govt. salary.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In addition, I had been working as TA and my salary for TA is 4 dollars. This money comes from Univ to my account. Prof. can not ask me to transfer these 4 dollars to lab fund. But here, we are not allowed to use this money.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Now we are only 2 students in this lab. All other students have passed the school. What we did is, we took some money from lab fund and use it. We thought that this is our money.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">So, taking money in this way is Haraam ? or it becomes halaal as we have earned it from Govt.</span></p>

Dream Interpretation
<p><span style="font-size: 12pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamualaikum , <br />Dear sir , I am a 25 year old practicing muslimah . I am ready to get married and my parents are searching for prospective spouse for me . I am also reading Quran and praying salatul Hazat. My question is I like a certain guy whose biodata came to me but I was confused about sending him my biodata  so I prayed istikhara and in my mother's dream we saw that the guy's parent would accept me as a wife but still i continued to pray the istikhara and then went to an imam to know about the character of the guy because we heard few bad words about the guy and the Imam ensured that the guy I like is not bad and a good person. ( This Imam is a reputed and trusted imam and does not deal with evil jinns ) <br />But I still wanted to wait as i know that spouse are already decreed by Allah ( S.W.T ) . But few days ago I wanted to pray again but the problem is i am scared that now I might see that he isn't the one for me in my answer to istikhara prayer as I am not getting any clear understanding of my dreams after doing istikhara again . Also I don't want to be paranoid as well thinking about someone constantly which is a toxic act.<br />Point to be noted that I moved on from this guy once hearing bad rumours about him but then after prayers for marriage & reciting Quran the guy's biodata came to me so I felt the desire to know about him again please enlighten me about the hard time I am going through as i don't want to waste my precious time on someone who is not meant for me. May Allah ( S.W.T ) bless you <br />Thank you <br />Salam </span></p>

My father gave me two land pieces, one he gifted me but both are under my name. Few days back I talked to him regarding the Zaqat and told him that if you think about land that was not gifted, as an investment so we have to pay the ZAQAT. As he gave me other land as a gift but as he is an elder, I also gave him authority letter to sell both the lands. O also asked him may be he has some thing else of investment in his mind but he said he was not thinking any thing. As I understand, he has not anything clear in his mind for both the lands. When I was talking to him It looked like that he has some other plans for both the lands but not for investment. As he is my father and back home we have joint family system, if he said to something else, I have to do that. But my Plan is different I want to build hotel on that land. Right now he has the sale deed under his name and he can sell both the lands any time, gifted one and the other one also.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">I save $450 for the ZAQAT but I need it and used it so what should I do.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">whats your point of view of paying ZAQAT on these land pieces?</span></p>

I ask because from my understanding, zakat needs to be paid on money that you have had for atleast a year</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">4. Do you pay zakat on the entire wealth or just the wealth over your nisaab</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;">5.

Once I am able, I will give the money for all 18 months to my father.

issue regarding divorce
<p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">In the year 2109, I filed for legal separation from my husband without informing him after going through marital disputes. After a few months, out of anger, my husband created a what's app group with the title of DIVORCE  and clearly mentioned in the what's app message that I should file for divorce default by myself. Later using the same what's app group he started sending messages to my family members stating that he has accepted the legal separation papers which were served to him and even said that he takes it as khula and khula is done according to him. I and my husband were in no contact until then, later we came in contact through email, conflicts were still not resolved and he again said through the email that he had sent a document to the court with his signature stating he wants to amend legal separation into a divorce. The next day when we had a conference call in court and I was asked again by the court about my decision so I went ahead and filed for divorce(KHULA). and it's been over 5 months since the KHULA is been finalized.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Now according to the whole situation presented above, when my husband sent the what's app message and submitted the document to court with his signature to amend the legal separation into divorce, so in both cases did two talaqs already happened or just one? and is it still permissible for both for us to get remarried with a new marriage contract (NIKAH)?</span></p>

It was previously a school building that was purchased and converted into a Madrasah and Masjid. Currently the 5 daily Salah are being prayed in the Masjid portion of the building in the Sunnah manner (without gapping). The Jumuah Salah used to be performed in the Masjid, but ever since summer of 2020 it has been moved to the gymnasium portion of the building due to COVID. The Jumuah is prayed with gapping. The gymnasium and Masjid are in the same building (under the same roof), but the gymnasium is outside of the Hudud of the Masjid.</span></p> <p><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">There is another Masjid that is approximately a 12 minute drive away where the Jumuah is prayed in the actual Masjid in the Sunnah manner (without gapping).</span></p> <p><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I am intending to perform Sunnah ‘Itikaf in my local Masjid. My question is where should I pray Jumu’ah? If I pray in the gymnasium will it break my Sunnah ‘Itikaf because it is not in a Masjid? Must I drive to the Masjid that is farther away for Jumu’ah? Will my ‘Itikaf still be intact if I leave the Jumu’ah in the gymnasium next to my local Masjid and drive to the farther Masjid? What would be the most preferable option?</span></p>

Online Purchase

I  purchased modest clothing worth $133 from an international website. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;"> Upon receiving the order I noticed that the one of the garment was in a packing with dirt in it and the garment itself had a lot dust and dirt on it. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Also, the sizing was very off for half of the garments that I ordered. I contacted the company and requested an exchange for dirty item. However, they never responded to my email or text messages on their whatsapp. I sent them multiple requests and waited atleast two weeks for them to  respond to my complaint. When no one got back to me, I filed a dispute on paypal (Because I paid via paypal and they protect both buyers and sellers in case there's a scam from either party) and requested to refund me the price of $8 for the item that was packed in dirt. The company responded through paypal's request and asked me to ship the garment back to them and pay for the return shipping cost myself, which would've been a very hefty fee. I further escalated the case, because as per the company's policy, they take responsibility for the defected items. They refused to cover the return shipping cost and instead of refunding me for the defected garment  Paypal refunded me the full amount of $133 because the company refused to take any responsibility for the defected garment.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">I felt very uncomfortable at receiving the full refund. I contacted paypal and they offered to pay the return shipping for the garments I wanted to return.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;"> I contacted the company and told them I'll be returning the defected item as well as the ones with inconsistent sizing. I requested an invoice so I could pay for some of the garments that I was going to keep. However, they responded that they will not take any returns and they didn't respond to my request for the invoice. I sent them another request asking them to send me an invoice so I can pay the difference. They only responded that they cannot accept returns or exchanges.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">My question is, is it halal for me to still keep these clothes and wear them? If not, is it halal for me to donate them? What is the most appropriate thing to do in this scenario? As the company simply refuses to accept returns and never responded to my request about sending me an invoice.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">I would very much appreciate a clarifying response. Jazakallah Khairun.</span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Just out of revenge, I married again. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">I soon realized this was a big mistake because I was very unhappy in that second marriage and I got contact with my 1st husband again. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">We started seeing each other again. Soon I was pregnant with his child again. Because of society, we again couldnt be together so we just stayed apart. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Recently, he is empahizing that he belives im still his wife and we should move in together. I also feel the same way. His second wife does not want so. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">I really want to follow the Qur'an and sunnah. Please advise me which marriage is valid. </span></p> <p> </p> <p> </p>

Working for a Bank

But I would like to know if working for the Bank is also haram as many job roles involves discussing with customers charges and interests on products they have, and some roles involve opening accounts for customers such as savings, credit cards and mortgages and these are all interest related.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I would appreciate if you could kindly respond if there is any knowledge in this area.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">JazakAllah</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Many thanks in advance</span></p>

Am I at fault for my mother forcing me to get a riba based student loan and me accepting finally?
<p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">My mother emotionally blackmailed and threatened me into getting a student loan saying she didn't have money to pay for my college since I dropped many classes and I had autism so attending a working in and being accepted to a menial job was hard. I eventually was convinced, but later I found out if I cancelled the loan I could stop the accruing of interest and stop going to school and pay then come back to school. I did that then my mother told me I was not welcome at her house over the phone and I was in terror for about half an hour looking for someone to stay with, but eventually I called my mom and she changed her mind. I was traumatized. I thought I would be homeless. Later, she secretly got out a loan from the bank instead of the university, and I got mad but she didn't care. Later, years later, she apologized, and she is paying, and I may get a job soon. Is it my sin?</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I had a dream where me and an old man were standing in a field and the old man raised his leg and started urinating and I started urinating and the pee started mixing in midair. I am an amateur with dream interpretation I thought this would mean I would marry his granddaughter and I looked it up in a dream dictionary and it confirmed. Is this the case? I cant remember if it was him,, a friend of my brothers or my friend, or all three in rapid succession. Or if I imagined for my own benefit after seeing the old man. </span></p>

She felt comfortable and secure. There was a house in front of her that she had never seen before, but it was so familiar to her, as if all her memories were inside the house. The house seemed abandoned because the lights were on, and there was no one inside. There were very few houses around that area. There were about 3 trees around the home. As she walked inside, she felt like she was recalling things that had not happened yet. When she was inside, she felt complete and thought to herself that if this is a dream then i would not want to get up.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">JazakAllah khayran, wassalam.</span></p>

Marriage/Divorce
<p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">As salaam alaikum, </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">I have a question regarding divorce through a court of law. Intention here is to understand from shariah perspective whether according to shariah if the divorce accepted in the court of law is VALID or NOT-VALID ? This is without announcing talaq either verbally or in written ever ( not even once )  to my wife. Is rule of the land override shariah law? </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Just as someone who intends to marry one have  to first get marriage license and must perform nikah in order to live in a married relationship, so is it not MUST  to take/get divorce ( talaq )  according to shariah as well after getting divorce through court of law? </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">I and my ex-wife, legally divorced through court order, having one child. After an extremely tumultuous, stormy period of living with extreme level of perseverance with my wife and not seeing any relief or a way to make marital life even remotely peaceful and many attempts of reconciliation failed, I as a way of saving myself from many issues had filed for divorce after a separation of 1 year away from each other and it was accepted. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">We are living in separation and no contact except via email. I told her to take khula and she doesn't say anything and just said you filed for divorce and it will be accepted everywhere, I understand legally it will be accepted and that was the intention to get away legally for various reasons and have a window open in case she intends to save the marriage at least even for the sake of our child who we both love.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Question is, since I never said talaq to her verbally or in written or have ever intended nor she asked for it but due to consistent turbulence and for my safety I filed and got divorced but need to know if this divorce through court of law is valid according to shariah or is the marriage still intact? <br /><br />I read online and heard from few that divorce is not done according to shariah and MUST  be done by way of talaq/khula and some said it's divorced as that's the rule of the land/country. If it's rule of the country then can one take marriage license and consider married Islamically? When after getting a marriage license, performing nikah and then while divorced is it not must to divorce through talaq/khula to make it valid according to shariah? </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Please think through and let me know. </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Jazakallah Khair </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: Arial;"> </span></p>

She was telling me that in her neighborhood there is a woman who has been doing some inappropriate activities like calling different men at her house and spending time with them or going out with them and spending nights( according to my friend, I don't know anything and nor I have seen that woman). She also said that this been going on since that woman's husband was sick and than he passed away. Also those men's wives  who are visiting that woman called her and told that she should do something about it since she lives in that neighborhood.  So many other things she shared about that woman that how she took money from some people and black mailed them and never gave money back. </span><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I told my friend that I am not in a position of making judgments or decisions about this matter since it's very sensitive about ones respect and other families are involved. If you could make her understand that it's wrong and give dawa to her it's well. Or ask those wives to stop their husbands as well. My friend said that our neighborhood is getting filthy because of this. What would be your advice according to Sunnah . How one should deal this with someone like her ? What if we try done thing and it spreads more than that woman who might make tauba and I pray she realizes it , would be so hurt by others that she might feel shame all her life . </span><br /><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">I am not in position to give any advice because these are my concerns.

Income Share Funding
<p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Assalamualaikum Mufti Saab, <br />Hope you are doing well.<br /><br />I came across this platform that <strong>provides loans on an income percentage share basis</strong>. Below are a few details from their website (<a href="https://fundmebff.com/index.php/how-it-works/">fundmebff.com</a>). Can you please advice if getting a loan from here is permissible?</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Jazak Allah khair.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;"><strong>Product and its Benefits</strong></span><br /><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Our Product: It is not a loan. We provide you with the money you need up front and in return, when you are working, you share a fixed percentage of your income for an agreed upon fixed period.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">A major advantage of our product: Your payments are designed to stay affordable. If your income decreases, your payments decrease too!</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;"><strong>How do we make money?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">For each investment we make, we have a target rate of return. Unlike a loan, we do not hold you liable if we don’t reach our target rate of return. That’s why our Income-share agreements are truly investments and not loans. We only do well if you do well.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Historically, our target rates of return have been at least %25 less than what an interest-bearing loan for the same amount and over the same period would cost.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;"><strong>What is the funding process?</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">1- Start with filling out the application for funding.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">2- If we’re interested in your initial application we may ask for some supplemental information.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">3- After providing the supplemental information, we will work with you to reach an income-sharing arrangement that makes sense for both of us.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">4- After agreeing to the terms, we will transfer the funds to your designated account.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">5- When your income share period starts, you start sharing your income with us at the agreed-upon fixed portion and for the agreed-upon fixed period of time.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-size: 14pt; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Assalamualaikum, </span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">I wanted to ask can a wife wear ladies shirts, ladies jeans, mini skirts, short clothes, any type of clothes that expose body parts and any type of clothes which are see through only to please her husband? only in front of her husband by trying to hide from the kids and other family members (Wife not wearing clothes in front of anyone else except husband). Her husband asks her to wear clothing to avoid any looking at non mahram women who wear these type of clothes. Can she wear any type of clothes which expose body parts or any short clothes only in fron of her husband?</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;"> Also advise if she wears the clothes that are see through(usually made of net) would the hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad PBUH apply that women who wears thin clothing would not get to smell the fragrance of jannah.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14pt;">Jazak Allah Khair</span></p>
