  1. Don't knowwhether it's recommended or not. Although here is one of therulingsfrom Ayatollah Sistaniin regards to wudhu: 254.While performing Wudhu, it is obligatory to wash the face and the hands once, and it is recommended to wash them twice. Washing them three or more times is haraam. As regards to which washing should be treated as the first, it will depend upon wa shing the face and hand thoroughly, leaving no room for precaution, with the niyyat of Wudhu. So, if he pours water on his face ten times with the intention of the first washing, there is no harm, but when he will then wash with the niyyat of Wudhu, it wi ll be called the first time. Thus, he can go on pouring water on his face several times, and in the final wash, make the niyyat of Wudhu. But if he follows this procedure, then the face and the hands should be washed once only, as an obligatory precaution. [http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2153/] There is also a PDF that I was reading which may be helpful (below). Below is an extract fromImam Sadiq's (AS) Jurisprudence - Muhammad Jawad Maghniyyah Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) said: “Allah is One and He likes oneness. It issufficient for you to use three handfuls (of water) during the wudu, one forthe face and two for the forearms. Wipe the front of your heads with the water remaining on your right hand, wipe the anterior surface of your rightfoot with the remaining water on your right hand and wipe the anteriorsurface of your left foot with the remaining water present on your left hand”(106) 40:14 reads: “therefore call upon Allah, being sincere to Him inobedience…” (107) 98:5 reads: “and they were not enjoined anything except that they shouldserve Allah, being sincere to Him in obedience…” (108) Imam Baqir (peace be upon him) was asked about a man who does good and whobecomes delighted when others observe his goodness. He said: “its okay providedthat he didn’t do such an action for the sake of people (alone), otherwise everybody likes to exhibit their goodness to people”(109) Imam Baqir (peace be upon him) said: “worshippers are not obliged to wash allareas covered by hair, rather it is sufficient just to pour water over such hair”(110) Imam Sadiq (peace be upon him) said: “executing the wudu once is obligatory,twice is insignificant but thrice is innovative” (111) [Page 61] *The references are given at page 117 in the PDFand on wards. I don't know the grading of any of them.
  2. Qibla Doubts

    Wsalam, I tend to firstly use my mobile device to assist in determining the qiblah direction then followed by observation of my location in terms of buildings and the road etc. I use an Android Islamic application to determine the location followed by a normal Android compass application for the specific degrees which you can get from most websites depending on your location such as Islamic Finder. I finally use a website such as eQiblasatellite view and look at the direction based on my environment so the buildings, which room I am in i.e. in the corner of the room etc. May be a bit excessive, although my last method personally gives me more certainty than my mobile device. Hope that helps insha'Allah.
  3. Huawei Android Tablet

    Wsalam, I don't have experience with a Huawei tablet. What are the main things you would use a tablet for? Do you care about the brand name? If you're going to use a tablet for low usage tasks, day to day then a lower end spec tablet may just be enough and a better cost effective option. If you are willing to pay a little bit extra and secure a better spec tablet which would most likely be a better long-term investment I would advise you to go for that as your needs may change later on (I own a Nexus 7 which I bought 3 odd years ago and it functions perfectly with no problems as far as I'm aware). Also consider storage as for example most Samsung tablets as far as I'm aware have an external memory storage possibility whereas Nexus/Google tablets do not. In regards to Android or iOS. iOS just seems extremely overpriced when an Android tablet for a fraction of the cost is able to perform the exact same functions. Android also offers you greater flexibility as a user and developer.
  4. Can Mehr (Dowry) Be Intangible

    Temporary Marriage Mahr Should Be of a Monetary Value Q1: Is it permissible that the mahr agreed upon in a temporary marriage be reciting some Qur’anic verses and giving the reward to the wife as a gift? Or it should be a material and tangible thing. Q2: If not, then in case that a girl had conducted temporary marriage several times and in every time her mahr was just reciting certain chapter of the Qur’an and giving its reward to her as a gift, is her previous marriage contract ruled null? And is the sexual intercourse they did considered as fornication? A1: Mahr of a temporary marriage should either be money/property or something of monetary value like teaching [her] a craft or how to read or the like and just giving her the reward of reading Qur’an cannot replace that. A2: All the previously settled contracts, mentioned in the question, are void. The subsequently happened sexual relationships — if the two partners were ignorant of contract/s nullity — were not ruled as ḥarām, rather they were ruled as mistakenly done coitus. If sexual intercourse and penetration have taken place after those void contracts while the wife was not aware of their nullity, she has the right to claim (mahr al-mithl) — mahr of women with the same station — from the husband. http://www.leader.ir/tree/index.php?catid=72
  5. Prayers/duas When Bored?

    Wsalam, Not sure about any specific duas. Why not just communicate with Allah (SWT) whether it be in regards to something in general or whatever is on your mind make it into a habit, anytime, any place. I pray that it becomes easier insha'Allah.

  10. Wudu

    Wsalam, Why? It is what we have been commanded to do by Allah before partaking in certain spiritual acts. 180 Questions - Enquiries about Islam - Volume One: The Practical Laws[Extract] 3. What is the manner of washing the face, and wiping the head and the feed in Wudu? Verse number 6 of Suratul Maidah (5:6) makes a mention of all those things that bring about the purification of man's soul and hence, a considerable portion of the rulings associated with Wudu, ghusl and tayammum, which bring about purification of the soul, have been explained therein. Initially the believers are addressed and the rulings related to Wudu, are mentioned as follows: يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِذَا قُمْـتُمْ إِلـى الصَّلاَةِ فَاغْسِلُوا وُجُوهَكُمْ وَ أَيْدِيَكُمْ إِلـى الْمَرافِقِ وَ امْسَحُوا بِرُؤُسِكُمْ وَ أَرْجُــلَكُمْ إِلـى الْكَعْـبَيْنِ‏ “O you who believe! When you rise up to prayer, wash your faces and your hands as far as the elbows, and wipe your heads and your feet to the ankles.” (5:6) You can read more: [http://www.al-islam.org/180-questions-about-islam-vol-1-practical-laws-makarim-shirazi/prayers#3-what-manner-washing-face-and-wiping-head-and-feet-wudu] Maybe if you look into the commentary of the verse number 6 of Suratul Maidah (5:6) it will give you a better insight inshAllah. According to Ayatollah Sayyid Sistani: 242. In Wudhu, it is obligatory to wash the face and hands, and to wipe the front portion of the head and the upper part of two feet. 258.After wiping the head, one should wipe with the moisture present in one's hands, one's feet from any toe of the foot up to the joint. As a recommended precaution, the right foot should be wiped with the right hand, and the left foot with the left hand. 262.The parts of wiping should be dry, and if they are so wet that the wetness of the palm of the hand has no effect on them, the wiping will be void. However, there is no harm if the wetness on those part is so insignificant, that the moisture of the palm overcomes it. [http://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2153/] Hope that helps inshAllah.

  14. Salawat In Salah. Question.

    If by after tashahud you mean: 1. Ash-hado an-la-illaha ilia Allah, wah-dahu la sharrika lah 2. Wa-ash-hadu anna mohammadan abdahu wa rasuloh 3. Allahuma salli ala mohammad wa ale mohammad Replacing 3. withO God bless Mohammad and the family of Mohammad just like you blessed Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim, indeed you are Praiseworthy, Majestic instead? If that's what you mean I would consult a Sheikh and get clarification to be safe.

    Even if it doesn't state it on their website I would say give them a call. They could possibly recommend some places to you. If you have any issues the Citizens Advice Bureau is usually useful to contact in any case. Which cases are covered by civil legal aid Examples of cases covered by civil legal aid are cases concerning:- road or work accidents - compensation for injuries, damage to vehicle and other losseshousing problems - such as eviction, repairs, rent arrearsdebts - to recover debts (over £3000) by going to courtconsumer problems - compensation for faulty goods or servicesdivorce, dissolution of civil partnerships and disputes about childrendiscrimination, where you are treated unfairly because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientationdefamation or verbal injury.http://www.adviceguide.org.uk/scotland/law_s/law_legal_system_s/law_taking_legal_action_s/help_with_legal_costs_scotland.htm
