  1. Mustahab means recommended, not wajib. So, please, don't equate the two and confuse the brother. As the others have mentioned, it's not a sin to urinate while standing. As for hiding your private parts, I'm sure that you're not literally chained together - or that everyone urinates at exactly the same time. So, if you can't leave the group, just walk a bit further away and do it while facing the other side. Though, I don't understand what kind of a school trip require people to not even be able to urinate alone.
  2. It's wajib.
  3. Well, sudden cravings are one of The Signs. @starlight Since the sister is interested in medicine related to her condition, perhaps you could suggest some prenatal vitamins or something. Once again, sister, congrats on the baby.
  4. Congrats! You're expecting.
  5. Well, then, before asking if he would be sinning by not having sex with his other wife, you should be more concerned about the fact that he is already sinning by having sexual relations with you. Moreover, while he may be saying something to you, it may not be true. He may be suggesting that he simply wants to marry her to bring the daughters here, but if he is marrying her and not you, what does that say about his intentions, exactly - and his commitment to you? Lastly, to answer your original question, a Muslim man with multiple wives is obligated to treat them equally, which means he cannot exhibit favouritism in any way. This means that if he has relations with one wife, he needs to have relations with the other as well. In this case, however, since he is not married to you, the only sexual obligations he would have are to his actual wife and none to you. Indeed, if you care about his hereafter, I would suggest you stop having relations with him, if you already are, as it is a grave sin he is committing every time you do so.
  6. As for the first question, you do know that when a man ejaculates, he must perform ghusl, yes? In this case, you cannot be sure if the discharge was urine or semen so the ruling insists that you act cautiously and account for both. If it was only urine, then only your wudhu was broken so you'd just have to do wudhu. If it was semen, you'd have to do ghusl but, in this case, since it is possible the discharge was not semen after all, the ghusl would not be a wajib ghusl and, therefore, you'd still need to do wudhu before prayer. As such, the ruling is based mostly on caution and asks you to first to do ghusl but also wudhu after that in order to cover all your bases. Regarding the second, that is correct. This is because the water of the masah must come from the remaining water on your hands from after washing your hands. If the water on your forehead mixes with the water from the remaining water on your hand to a great degree (such that it was, say, very dry before but after you do masah on your head and touch your forehead which was really wet), then the water with which you do masah on your feet would not be the remaining water from washing your hands and would, in fact, be the water from your forehead. This is not allowed. In order to avoid this situation, it is better to be cautious and just stop a few cm before the hairline in order to ensure the water doesn't mix.
  7. Have you married this man? Was this a permanent marriage or Mut'ah?
  8. Send it to me;
  9. It's not that hard. All prayer timing websites gives you the times for Isha and Fajr. Layl is simply the midpoint of the two.
  10. I would suggest not starting with 1. It's so old, the graphics aren't good and, more importantly, the mechanics aren't as good as newer games. Start with 3 or 2.
  11. You died a 100 times to the Nameless King?
  12. I think that, giving more as a form of ihtiyat, is allowed but not for any of the 'other reasons' you mentioned.
  13. Uh, you cannot give 'extra Khums'. That's not allowed. Khums is a set amount and just as you cannot pray 5 rakat for Isha, you cannot pay more money for Khums than the 20% required. If you feel extra generous or want to donate money, then you can give that away as charity but you cannot include that amount in Khums. As for giving Saadat sadaqah, what he said. ^ Sadaqah is different from Zakat and it's an optional act of charity with no rules; you can give it to whoever you want.
  14. 1. If the marja said it was valid, then it is. 2. As above. It was legitimate and you have nothing to worry about. 3. You repeated it once again to be sure and did it correctly so why would it not be? In a nutshell, doubts and 'thoughts' are irrelevant when it comes to the intentions of actions. As long as you weren't forced into the marriage with a threat to your life, for example, as long as you said "Yes," with your tongue, you agreed to it and that was your explicit intention. Any doubts underneath it all are irrelevant as far as the intentions of actions of go, Islamically speaking. So, your marriage is valid and there's nothing to worry about. Lastly, with these kinds of things, thinking about it again and again always makes it worse. So, just start ignoring these doubts. In fact, your 'fear' comes from an irrational anxiety regarding the sin. So, when the doubt comes up, tell yourself, "So what if I'm sinning?" Once you learn to be less anxious about the sin, the doubts will dissipate themselves. (Of course, that doesn't mean I'm saying you shouldn't be wary of sin, just that you assume a less stringent position so that your fear of sin is rational and not extreme/irrational as it is now.) Most importantly, you must always remember that Allah is All-Forgiving. He's not going to punish you for some technical/clerical error, especially when you've made all the efforts to correct it (like contacting the marja and repeating the formula). Beyond that, there is no more responsibility on you and God will not test you for more than you can bear.
  15. Well, you certainly had a rather violent childhood, then. No wonder this newer generation is better and more peaceful.
