  1. Is subliminal haram?

    I just want to ask is subliminal haram because Subliminal communications are messages beamed directly to the subconscious mind. What I mean here is I rely on my subconscious mind not jin or black magic involve whatsoever... Does is still considered haram
  2. It seems a trend for many Muslims to easily labeling as haram on almost anything such as music, sports, driving, riding bicycles, movies, TV, INTERNET including youtube, etc. thus unnecessarily harming health, work and educational opportunities for many, especially for women. Such trend would be a catalyst for attacks on Islamic system as a whole from inside and out if left ignored. In going over how things are ruled as haram(prohibited), let us start with Quran as a source. Ayat can be muHkam or mutashabih. The muHkam /clear verse which can be ‘aam / general, khaas / specific, (amr and nahy)/(imperative and prohibitive), or mushtarak / collective. مشترك Amr(imperative) can be Fard (obligatory by clear textual dalil evidence) wajib(necessary by probable evidence), manduub(recommended), or mubaah(permissible/indifferent). Nahy can be haram or makruh(disliked). So haram ruling is derived from nahy type of MuHkam verse which is absolutely clear by its own. Thus, Quranic source of haram, makruh, mubaah, manduub, wajib or fard ruling is from muHkam verses. Since some of us are subjected to such rulings with real consequences with accompanying execution power of rewards or punishments by rulers, we all must understand the mechanism of the rulings. If the source of such ruling is only from hadith with vague wording with outdated situation, such as allowed traveling distance for women; is it OK to apply the lower standard in deriving hukum than from Quran? Please help me here by correcting me in any part, offering your knowledge in this area of Islamic jurisprudence. Thank you in advance.
  3. Music Played in House

    Salam, I have a question In Wasail al-Shia we find - "Amir ul-Mu’minīn Imam ‘Ali (a.s.) says, “Angels do not even enter a house that has wine, drum, tambourine or a flute. Even the prayers of the inhabitants of this house are unacceptable. They are deprived of barakat.” I don't listen to music at all and I know it's haram, but my family members play it and I ask them to stop but they don't. Does this mean my prayers are not accepted? I know of the Quranic verse which says that no soul shall be punished for another's actions... but the hadith is very clear..
  4. Assalamualaikum, Is it better to do something that could be wajib but may be haram, or to abstain from it because it could be haram but may be wajib? Let me explain (brothers be warned, this is a menstruation question). I am a woman whose menstruation is unpredictable. I never know when it will start. Most of the time, blood is just very brief spotting rather than the start of a period, but obviously sometimes it's actually the start of menstruation. I also can't tell by the color or consistency of the blood which one it is. Whenever this happens, I'm always thrown into an ethical dilemma. Salat is wajib, but it's haram during menstruation. So I panic -- should I pray, or should I not pray? If I pray and I'm on my period, I have done something haram. But if I don't pray and it turns out I'm not on my period, I have done something haram. Normally after around 20 minutes of agonizing over this question, I opt to pray. Usually this is the right decision, but occasionally I am wrong. Rarely, I am confident that yes, I am in fact starting my period, and opt to not pray. I have been wrong, though. I am leaning towards that it is better to pray and be wrong than to not pray and be wrong. Would you agree or disagree?
  5. Mutah Issues

    Salam all, I was looking for some guidance on something. Alhamdulilah I have just came back from Ziyarat and after speaking with a Alim there, he made me make a promise and that was to drop my most dangerous sin. Ashamed to admit, but as a young male, my worst sin is istimna(masturbation). The Alim advises that I get married to stay away from sin and take care of human needs in halal fashion however since I will not be getting married for at least another 2-3 years due to school and parents not willing til completion, he recommended mutah with Ahle kitab. my issue is that I feel guilty doing Nikkah mutah solely for the sake of justifying pleasure, and just because it is better than istimna. Also, to pay someone willing here as a dowry, I feel like is very similar to prostitution and have a hard time accepting that. I am only asking because I want to take care of my human desires in a halal fashion and it’s getting to the point my mind is consumed by these dirty thoughts. I usually controlled this by astagfirullah but I have stopped that now. please looking for some help or advice. Jazak

  9. Salam, Is it haram to be attrackted to the opposite sex even though they are not doing the act? Like lets say that a girl is attrackted to other girls but she does not come near girls in any seksual matter. I was just thinking that some people can not control their feelings and what they are attrackted to. I mean Allah put that in them. But is it still haram just to have the thoughts in your head even if you still pretend to like guys?

  14. Hair gel containing alcohol

    I usually use hair gel. It contains alcohol. I have talked with an aalim in my local mosque, and if I understood correctly, it's not Najis and you can pray with it. My question is simply; Even if it's not Najis, is it haram if you accidentally get it in your mouth and you swallow it? When I wash the gel of with water, I start doubting if some of the gel has ended up in my mouth with the water. If it's not najis, is it also that it's not haram due to change of its form? Thankful for some guidance.
  15. Nose job haram or halal?

    Okay, guys. Please hear me out first. Okay so, it all begun when i went to high school. I was in class when this boy who sat beside me said : ''Wow you have the hughest nose i've ever seen.'' I ignored it, but when i went home i looked at my nose realising he was right. I never really paid attention to it ... because i was young and didn't really care about how i looked? But well yeah, im by the way a girl. So my nose is really big, i've basically my father's nose and sometimes i wished i had my mother's. It is hooked, it doesnt look good from the profile nor the front... and it's kind of wide too. Everytime i talk it takes a weird shape, if i laugh the tip goes down and i basically look like a witch. My brothers do have these noses too, but their's doesnt go down or anything and it itsn't that bad and also they're boys so it doesnt really look weird on them. Ofcourse my parents Always say that my nose is beautiful, they are your parents after all. But i know my nose is not beautiful and im so self conscious about it. I've got a couple of comments in my life about it and the last one was very recent. I was in school and there were like this 'popular girls' who are 2 years younger. Anyway i was just focusing on the computer and they joked about me looking like a bird... i heard them but simply ignored it... like always Im very scared to meet new people, also im going to college in like two months and im scared .... When I walk i Always pretend like there is something in my eye so i can wipe it off with my hand so it will cover my nose and no one will see my profile.. I mentioned a nose job a couple times to my mother and she says it's not allowed because it's god's creation and that i should be thankful that i have a nose and that im healthy. She's right i guess?? I mean i am healthy and at least i got a nose... and doing a nose job means you're not happy with that what Allah gave you. but it still hurts me when i see every girl with this cute nose or people who got surgery and they look great after it.. so i searched on internet and people actually say it's not haram ... but i dont know im 17 and im not planning a nose job anytime soon ... but maybe for the future?? My nose is really an obstacle for me, i dont like going outside because people will see it, and i really cant make new friends or something.. also i have a job interview in two days and im scared that they will not want me because of my big ugly nose. does someone know if a nose job is haram or halal?? Can someone please answer thanks for hearing me out it kind of felt good to tell someone as i cannot talk to my friends abt it bc i dont want anymore attention on my nose and well i cant really talk to my parents about it. By the way, it's basically like my father's side of the family that has this kind of noses and my mother's side doesnt they all have cute little noses.. and i think it looks bigger because i also wear hijab so it looks more prominent.. and it is already big.. (ps: sorry for my bad english, it's not my first language)
  16. (Bismillah) Salam I don't wanna sound like an atheist but I'm trying to be as critical as I can cuz these questions are holding me back from being a Shia Muslim and I would be so happy if u could answer these questions so that people don't always win me in argues with these questions thank u. 1. Is it true that if u revert or convert away from Islam u will be killed: Quran Quran (4:89) - "They wish that you should reject faith as they reject faith, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of God; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper." Verse 4:65 says that those who have faith are in "full submission" to Muhammad's teachings. This verse explains what should happen to Muslims who do not have faith. Quran (9:11-12) - "But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion. We detail Our revelations for a people who have knowledge. And if they break their pledges after their treaty (hath been made with you) and assail your religion, then fight the heads of disbelief - Lo! they have no binding oaths - in order that they may desist." Other verses that seem to support the many Hadith that establish the death sentence for apostates are Quran verses 2:217, 9:73-74, 88:21, 5:54, 9:66. Hadith and Sira The most reliable Hadith collection contain numerous accounts of Muhammad and his companions putting people to death for leaving Islam. According to verse4:80 of the Quran: "Those who obey the Messenger obey Allah." Sahih Bukhari (52:260) - "...The Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' " Sahih Bukhari (83:37) - "Allah's Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate." Sahih Bukhari (84:57) - [In the words of] "Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'" Sahih Bukhari (89:271) - A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to be killed according to "the verdict of Allah and his apostle." Sahih Bukhari (84:58) - "There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, 'Who is this (man)?' Abu Muisa said, 'He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.' Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, 'I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice.' Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, 'Then we discussed the night prayers'" 2. Why is Shiism the right sect when we hit our selfs for Imam Hussein wen hurting yourself is haram and hitting yourself on the chest makes health issues worse. And did the imams or prophet tell us to hit each other or slice each other up and tawasul is haram right u can only pray to Allah or else it's haram in the beginning of the Quran it says worship Allah alone only him and there is no verse supporting to say ya ali or ya Hussein why can't we say ya Allah or ya Muhammad rasolallah why do we put more focus on the imams and not as much to the prophet. If you answer to these questions and it make sense and with sources I will convert to Shia Islam 3. Is the Darwin theory true? Or Adam and Eve can any of it be true and how. 4. It's haram to take over other countries and take their land like tha caliphs did right and if the prophet allowed it is their any proof and why was it to have power is this the pure Islam? 5. We shouldn't be visiting Imams shrines no I mean like puttinggg gold around it it's haram right and also people talk with the imams why isn't this haram and some imams say that the Quran is not the right version. And they focus so much on Imam Hussein and hit them selves why is it ok if u don't do that? Extra questions why are the Middle East contries back is it cuz of o freedom like the sharia law why do people that don't Belive in Islam have to follow our rules and don't u think thoose rules were good for 1400 years ago, why do we have marjas? thank u so much brothers and sisters Allah hafiz
  17. Dinner invitation

    Assalamu alaykum A muslim family invited me for iftar tomorrow, and I accepted. They owe a store and their earnings come from selling Christian statues (like statues of Saints or statues of Jesus on The cross and the Virgin Mary) , statues of Buddha, amulets, and things like that, which I think it's haram. Now I have 2 questions: 1) Are their earnings haram? I think it's unlawful because they are muslim and it's like promoting corrupt beliefs. 2) In case their earnings are haram, is it haram for me to accept their invitation and eat at their house? I'm asking this because I know that if our income is from haram sources then even the food we buy with that money is haram to eat. I don't know what to do because I already accepted the invitation but I really don't want to eat haram, specially because it's Ramadan, I don't want to commit any sin this month. Also my mom is mad at me because I don't want to attend to the dinner(I want to avoid eating from haram earnings), but it's like I'm being disrespectul to them. What should I do? If I don't attend I would hurt their feelings and they will be mad at me, but if I attend I might be comitting a very big sin. I already sent this question to many scholars but I don't think I will receive any answer before tomorrow, that's why I'm asking here.
  18. Salam. First of all I apologize for my bad english. I'm writing this post because I don't know what else to do. Yesterday muslim friends invited me and my family to their house for dinner. I take every precaution I can to avoid eating or drinking something that may contain alcohol. Someone served me food in a plate where there were traces of vinegar (and I knew it), but I don't know if this vinegar has alcohol in it, as many vinegars has today. When this person gave me the plate, I thought I shouldn't eat it because I didn't know if the vinegar has alcohol, but anyways I ended eating the food. I know vinegar is halal, but I've read that some vinegar has traces of alcohol (even extra alcohol added) in it and this types of vinegar are haram. Now I'm feeling very very very guilty, I feel like I shouldn't eat that because I wasn't sure about the alcohol. If I ate any tiny amount of alcohol my prayers and duas won't be accepted for 40 days. I feel very sad because tomorrow begins the month Ramadan, and I've been waiting for laylatul qadr for many weeks mostly because I have a very special request that I wanted to do dua for. The month of Ramadan is the month where prayers and duas are accepted, and now my prayers won't be accepted. I don't know what to do, I was waiting for this month and now I ruined it just few days before it begins. I want to know if I commited any sin, and if I didn't, how can I get rid off this thoughts? I really want to do my personal prayers and duas in this blessed month and I want them to be accepted, but I ruined it. 1) I did not eat anything with vinegar to be sure I don't let any alcohol enter my body, but the plate where my food was served had traces of it. In case the vinegar had extra alcohol in it, did I commit a sin because I did not investigate before eating from the plate? The reason I feel guilty is because it was not fully unintentionally. Before eating I thought it could have alcohol and should not eat from that plate, but I did not care because lately I'm being very obsessed about every food. 2) If one doubts if the food has alcohol and still eats it, the rule of 40 days still applies? I wan't to know if my prayers won't be accepted in Ramadan because of what I did yesterday I'm sorry for the long post and for repeating the same thing over and over, but I feel very sad and disappointed with myself. Please, if someone can help I would appreciate it so so so much. I know my post may be silly, but this all thing about the food is driving me crazy. I try to avoid even chocolates, cakes and any dessert because they have vanilla in it and I don't know if the vanilla they use has alcohol in it. I reached the stage where I avoid even the bread because I think brewer's yeast is haram and I'm not sure if they use baker's yeast or brewer's yeast to make the bread.
  19. Just like the title says thanks is advance
  20. I recently signed up on a site, where you get paid for doing other people's homework. I've rejected every assignment proposal that has asked for acknowledgement that the student has done it himself. I refrain from attempting tests or quizzes for people as well. Doing homework for people can be considered as help init? Just like your household or your tutor help you (that's my opinion). If anyone knows a proper mushtahid's verdict on the topic, feel free to answer, thank you!
  21. Is Masturbation Really Haram??

    Salam Alaykom. I am 15 years old and I have a problem. My friend who is a sheikh always tells me that masturbation is haram. He keeps telling me that if I keep doing it, I will spend years burning in the barzakh before going to janah, and I will have bad luck. I am very scared from what he is telling me and I want to stop but I can't. I ask other people and they tell me that times have changed and that during the time of nebi mohammad, they had prostitutes and would get married at a young age. Also other sources say it is makrookh. Can somebody please give me the right answer because I am very religious but I can't control my desires.
  22. Is Ben n' Jerrys Halal

    Don't know why but I was randomly looking through Ben n' Jerrys chunky monkey ingredients. Saw something called carrageenan and looked it up on Google. Basically it's extract of sea weed "but during its production it is crystallized either by Ethyl Alcohol or Isopropyl Alcohol or Potassium Chloride (KCl) or nothing. If Potassium Chloride (KCL) or nothing is used during the processing of Carrageenan then it will be Halal. But if Ethyl Alcohol or Isopropyl Alcohol was use to crystallized the Carrageenan then this Carrageenan will become NOT HALAL ingredient.". A third link I came across shows halal certification for 10 of their flavors. http://sweetsandcolors.blogspot.com/2011/06/six-halal-ben.html?m=1 INSHALLAH this turns out to be halal. It's the only ice cream that actually tastes good.
  23. Christmas questions

    @Jessa Salama alyukum, I had a question I don't know how to handle this situation, my kids they like the idea of Christmas like the gifts,tree ,and the lights. I'm wondering if this is haram if we bring a tree and gifts for the kids. But not celebrate like eating a big meal and drink and sings Christmas songs. If I do bring one it will just me a tree and gifts. Is this haram to do that or no. Please answer thank you.
  24. Salam dear friends, I have a quick question about life insurance. I was raised in a Sunni family, and according the Hanafi fiqh we followed, taking out life insurance was deemed haram. Why is life insurance permissable in Shia Islam? As this is the case, who would I take out life insurance with? I live in London. All answers will be greatly appreciated.
  25. [LAWS]Henna on fingernails?

    As salaam alaikum. I know of some women that apply henna to their nails. I was wondering is it haram? Can you still pray/ make wudhu with henna on your nails? I've had a browse online about this matter but haven't really found anything on this topic. Any advice/ knowledge would be much appreciated as I'd like to apply some to my nails but I want to make sure it's permissible first. JazakAllah in advance.
