  1. (bismillah) (salam) My daughter is currently 16 months old. Previously, from around 7 - 11 months she used to sleep throughout the night (possibly only waking once for a feed) in her own cot which is in our bedroom. However, since she turned 1, she insists on sleeping in our bed, and wakes every hour or two for milk, even though she eats 3 solid-food meals a day. This may be due to teething, but I don't think it is, as my wife and I have tried different teething gels and/or powders to no avail. 4/5 months of interrupted sleep is really taking its toll on us and we're considering placing her cot in the spare bedroom and attempting the Cry it Out method of sleep training. Our question is: Islamically, at what age is it appropriate for a baby to be placed in their own room, and are western sleep training methods permitted? Thanks in advance for any advice.
  2. Salam,

    Happy Birthday.

  3. Many Many Happy Returns of the Day.

    May Allah Bless You !

    Have a Blast........Enjoy !!!

  4. Ramadhan 2009 - Lecturers

    Yes, live broadcast at: www.iislamic.org. Ayatullah Al-Gharavi starts the lecture at 9:30pm
  5. Yes, the link helped, thank you.
  6. (salam) Ayatullah Sistani's website mentions the following rule: 352. When one cannot ascertain whether the fluid emitted from one's body is semen, urine or something else, it will be treated as semen if it is thrown out with lust and if the body is slackened. If all or some of these signs are not present the fluid will not be treated as semen. In the case of illness, the fluid may not come out with sudden swiftness and the body may not slacken; but if the emission takes place with lust, it will be treated as semen. What is meant by "thrown out with lust and if the body is slackened"? Does this mean to climax and ejaculate? If some fluid is excreted while being intimate with one's wife but before ejaculation and the erection is maintained even after moving away from one's wife, does this count as semen; would one be in a state of janabat? Thanks for any help.
  7. salam,

    Allah huma swalay ala Mohammad wa Aalay Mohammad.

    Happy birthday to you

  8. I asked this same question on aimislam.com and was fortunate enough to have it answered by the scholar, Sayyed Nabil Al-Haidari, whose reply was: Which then begs the question, why do so many Islamic countries prescribe such harsh punishments for women that aren't adequately covered?
  9. (salam) During the time of our Holy Prophet (pbuh) and the Caliphate of Ali (as), what happened to women that chose not to wear hijab? Is it a criminal offence under sharia? If so, how was it enforced? Are there any hadiths of non-covered women approaching the Prophet (pbuh) or Ali (as) - how did they interact? Thanks in advance for answering my questions. Ws, Adnan
  10. I don't think we would be accountable for how literature is handled once we're no longer responsible for it, although I could be mistaken.
  11. I usually dispose of such literature at my local recycling center.
  12. Fasting

    (salam) According to Ayatollah Sistani: Source: http://www.sistani.org/local.php?modules=n...59&pid=2995
  13. Sighting The New Moon

    I've also read something similar - technically the new moon occurred Wednesday 12th, making the 1st of Ramadhan Thursday 13th (as observed by the Royal Greenwich Observatory). However, due to poor visibility, the moon wasn't sighted in the UK, thus the 1st was declared for today, Friday 14th.
  14. Women's Right In Islam

    (salam) You observation is correct. In fact, if we look at the Yusuf Ali translation: [YUSUF ALI/4:15] If any of your women are guilty of lewdness, take the evidence of four (Reliable) witnesses from amongst you against them; and if they testify, confine them to houses until death do claim them, or Allah ordain for them some (other) way. and also [YUSUF ALI/24:4] And those who launch a charge against chaste women, and produce not four witnesses (to support their allegations),- flog them with eighty stripes; and reject their evidence ever after: for such men are wicked transgressors. i.e. the Allah is protecting the reputation of women.
