Premarital Prep Masterclass.. Join the Workshop

Q:


My husband is disrespectful to me and having a peaceful life together seems impossible. So he divorced me once and then revoked the divorce. Within a few days we got divorced again. We didn’t get intimate and I haven’t menstruated after the first divorce. So what are the instructions in this case?

A:

The first pronouncement of divorce counted. Since he revoked it, the second pronouncement of divorce also counts. He has no more chances left and if he pronounces divorce again, it will be final and cannot be revoked. Also, I highly suggest you both seek a wise third party to help you with your marital problems.

Q:

I want to see if Islam is the truth or not. You say vaccines are halal but they say it’s haram and kufr to take them.

Source: How Government Measures in Response to Covid Caused Infinitely More Harm Than Good

A:

It is important to consult scholars who are experts in the field of Islamic Law. The article you quoted does not seem to be written by scholars. Lastly, keep in mind that the discussion on vaccines is not a primary test to determine the truth or falsity of Islam as a religion. The life of the Prophet, the Qur’an, and other factors attest to the religion of Islam being the truth.

Q:

What should a Muslim do when one found a charm sacrifice in his house?

A:

I am not sure what exactly a “charm sacrifice” is. I tried to look it up but could not find anything which matches those words. If you found something that shouldn’t be there, just throw it away or burn it.

Q:

My mother 46f is severely sick for a year with heart, lungs and kidney issues, she needs oxygen daily and according to the doctors she may have less than a couple of years to live, she refuses to put on hijab, read quran or pray, and is convinced that all these duties are a hoax and that Allah doesn’t burden us with anything other than remembering him through du’aa and istighfar etc.


She recently lost her eye sight in both eyes and her operations aren’t working so we are not sure if she will be able to see again, i tried for years to convince her to perform wudu and pray or read quran but she never wanted to do it and every time i bring it up she gets super upset and doesn’t wanna hear anything about it.

 
My question is: can I perform good deeds like praying on her behalf or give zakat in her name and will Allah count it as her deeds?


Should I just keep praying to Allah to guide her in the time remaining?


And until I die keep doing good things on her behalf in hopes it accumulates and become enough for her to not be punished? What can I do to save this woman, please help and jazakom allah khair

jazakom allah khair

A:

One Muslim cannot pray, fast, or pay Zakah for another. These are acts of worship and are responsibilities. Keep praying for her and reminding her in the best and wisest way to try to come closer to Allah. Perhaps someone else can remind her that she trusts more and respects. May Allah grant you patience and grant her the insight to practice Islam the way Allah wants her to.

Q:

A lady vomit for men shirt Is accept namaz or not

Please immediately response

A:

Vomit is considered an impurity in Islam. Therefore, the vomit must be washed off the shirt before praying.

Almighty Allah knows best.


Q:

Why does Sahih al-Bukhari 2658 state that a women’s testimony is worth half of a man’s and that a woman is deficienct in her intelligence? I always believed Islam promoted equality between men and women. Thank you

A:

The hadith is not saying that women are deficient in their intelligence. Please watch this to better understand the issue in detail: Is a Woman’s Testimony Worth Half of a Man’s?

Almighty Allah knows best.


Q:

I heard in an interview that it is proved from Hadees that women is a Bewaqoof/Foolish creature of Allah, is it true?

A:

No, this is not true. Allah has created both men and women with the ability to understand good from bad. There are human weaknesses that both have, but neither men nor women are fools by nature.

Almighty Allah knows best.


Q:

I see alot of men at my school wearing silver chains designed for men. I was interested in buying one but wanted to make sure it was halal before doing so.

It is a chain made for men so it makes me think it’s permissible

A:

Yes, it is allowed for a man to wear an accessory that is clearly made for men, as long as it does not contain gold or silk, since those two things are prohibited for men.

Almighty Allah knows best.


Q:

At school we have to make a music video for German class. Sadly it’s obligatory for us and our grade. I’m I allowed to participate? What if just do camera work and don’t help them with the making of the music itself? And sometime at school we are going to watch everyone’s video. I’m i allowed to watch that too?

A:

If you choose a song with a hollow drums or other percussion instruments, then it will be allowed to do this, since most scholars have said that the hollow drum (daff) is allowed. Also note that other scholars have said that instruments are allowed as long as the lyrics are clean and good.

Q:

My mother, my siblings and I live with my Grandmother under her roof. I take my grandmother out to be a very oppressive person towards her family. One day she treated my little sister unfairly n lashed out at her which happens often so my mother defended my little sister and I jumped in this time and defended her and only mentioned what my little sister did, I didn’t say things like you this and you that, and in doing so my voice and tone was a bit loud. After that I felt very guilty and asked my grandmother for maaf and she replied with “Allah maaf” and still didn’t admit her faults but I left it and agreed with her anyway just to avoid another incident or ill feelings.

What I want to know is did I really commit sins of disrespect and rudeness to my grandmother even though I repented just in case? What is the status of grandparents? I am aware that sins committed against people will result in repenting and only asking pardon from them or some of your good deeds will be given to them on judgement day to compensate but when it comes to parents’ rights and disrespect, rudeness and disobedience to them will result in more consequences than sins committed against other people which is punishment either in the dunya or in Akhirah, your repentance and good deeds are nullified, and Allah accepts nothing from you etc so does the same happen when it is done to grandparents as well? Please correct me where I’m wrong.
My intention is not to backbite(Astaghfirullah) but I need answers and council. I don’t want to ask the Ulama in the city where I live because everyone knows each other here.
Another question… If you’ve been pardoned by someone can that person take it back?

A:


Grandparents should be shown the same respect as parents. Even if they are wrong, make sure that when you disagree with them, you do so respectfully. You are only responsible for your actions, so if they are doing something wrong, they will be accountable for that. As for pardoning: once pardoned the person cannot just take it back.

Q:

Are crickets permissible to eat?

A:

Muslim scholars have differed over whether crickets can be eaten. Most scholars said they are not allowed since they are insects and are repugnant. A few said crickets are allowed to be waten based on the allowance for eating a locust.

Q:

Is it haram to work as a cashier in a grocery store that sells alcohol.

I understand that it is haram under any circumstances to sell alcohol and assist in distributing it. I work as a cashier in a grocery store where we sell wine but not strong alcoholic drinks like vodka tequila, etc. (so only wine), so is it still haram for me to have this job when i am basically distributing the wine by processing the transactions?

A:

It is best to avoid a job where you have to deal with alcohol. However, if you do not have other viable options, then it is allowed since you are neither owning them nor promoting them, and non-Muslims are buying it.

Almighty Allah knows best.


Q:

I am a muslim woman,25 years old. I love someone, I don’t want to be in haram relationship anymore. My parents don’t want me to marry him because he is not doctor/engineer but comes from commerce background and doesn’t belong to a family that is too much popular like mine. But he is a good guy, is well educated, well mannered and a good Muslim. Can i get married without their permission and will they get punished by Allah if they make me marry someone of their choice by doing emotional blackmailing.

A:

Firstly, you should stop the haram relationship that you have with him. When you are emotionally attached to someone you cannot think properly about long-term consequences. This is my first advice.

Secondly, your parents cannot and should not force you to marry someone against your will. However, since you are emotionally attached to this man, you will probably not be willing to even consider anyone else.

In a case like this, you and your parents should go to a wise third-party who can help you both compromise, given the situation.

Almighty Allah knows best.


Q:

My son name is arzaan but i doubt it’s meaning it is good or should I change the name

Please confirm

A:

I do not see any problem with the name Arzaan. As long as a name has a positive meaning, it is allowed in Islam.

Almighty Allah knows best.
