  1. Suppose a man wishes to quit masturbation and has tried different methods but nothing has worked. He is putting in immense effort to prevent masturbation from happening but he keeps on failing. He has no means to do nikah/mutah. In a desperate attempt to stop the heinous crime, he asks his friend to lash him 50 times with a whip whenever he requests him. He doesn't tell his friend the reason for why he wishes to get whipped. The friend agrees and has whipped him 50 times on a few occasions. The result is that the masturbation frequency has greatly reduced because getting lashed 50 times i
  2. Salam The Ahlul-Bait (عليه السلام) have been made pure by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) from all impurities, as mentioned in verse 33:33. Does that mean they were pure from all ritual impurities as well, like defecation, urination, menstruation and sexual impurity (junabah)? If yes, then does it mean that even though they performed these actions like other humans, they still didn't become impure? In other words, these actions do make us impure, but the same actions cannot make the Ahlul-Bait impure....is it like that? Could it be possible that in reality they did not even en
  3. Is that true? As far as I know, we can be held responsible even for our haram thoughts. I think there is a hadith that if one thinks about haram sexual activity, that thought will be like smoke filling up inside brain. That means that if a person is unmarried, then it is not only that he needs to stay chaste, he also needs to be such that not even the thought of any sexual activity comes into his mind, because if that thought is associated with another person, then it will be a brain filled with smoke. The only sexual thought that would be permissible would be for one's spouse, but if a person
  4. Right. But should one aim to reach a level of piety where he is not even tempted to sin? Were the immaculate and infallible imams at such high levels of devotion to Allah that instead of feeling any temptation to sin, they felt disgusted by even the thought of sinning? Should we at least try to reach a level of purity where we not only avoid sins but also feel no temptation?
  5. As per Islamic ethics, is it acceptable for a man to come in front of his sons wearing only an underwear? Or is that against standards of Islamic decency?
  6. Salam If a young unmarried man has fear of falling into sin, it becomes obligatory to get married. But does it remain an obligation when the man knows that his fear of sin will not finish after he gets married? Suppose the man has an opportunity to get married but he knows that for a long time after marriage, he will not be living with his wife. For example, a man is getting married to a woman who lives in a different country and they can only start living together 1-2 years after marriage. During this time, they will not physically meet each other but will communicate over phone a
  7. Salam A man and his wife have been married for a few years but they have been living in different countries because of reasons beyond their own control. The man is going to visit his hometown where his wife lives after several years but he will be there for only a few days. In fact, it will only be possible for him to stay in his home town for just two weeks and unfortunately not any longer. During the time he has been away, he has not had any second marriage or mutah. Now because of Covid-19, when he arrives in his home town, he will be required by government order to self q
  8. Perhaps this is why a married man who does not commit sexual sins may get greater reward for his struggles to remain chaste than an unmarried person. A married man has experienced what sexual satisfaction is like. Now when for some reason that satisfaction becomes unavailable, for example if the couple has to be physically away from each other for months or years, then it becomes much more difficult and an extreme test of sexual patience. That's why a married man who is chaste gets much more reward than unmarried because although he can get sexual satisfaction, he may also have to face tremend
  9. If a married person commits sexual sin, his punishment is double that of an unmarried person. Now, when it is said that marriage protects one from sinning, ofcourse it is correct. But the other aspect is that if for some reason the married man is unable to get that protection from marriage, his marriage does not help him in avoiding sin (for any reason), then could he end up being in a worse state than he was before being married. A person masturbates before marriage - he might be able to give an excuse to Allah. But after marriage, if he still faces the same degree of difficulty i
  10. Azan on loudspeaker was considered haram by many religious leaders in India in early 1900s. This was the time when loudspeaker was newly invented and was something previously unknown to many people. Many Muslims were confused about a 100 years ago whether loudspeaker was halal or haram. There were fatwas against the use of loudspeaker from different scholars and people protested against the use of the device for azaan. Gradually however, it became acceptable and the use of lots speaker became so widespread that no Muslim today would even imagine that loudspeakers are haram. A related arti
  11. But if he is baligh, the laws would apply on him just like an older individual, isn't it ? Things that are haram would remain haram whether the sinner is 11 or 50. Correct ?
  12. I agree. But I was just mentioning what the rule says....if the 11 year old is baligh and has fear of falling into sin, then as per the law it would be obligatory to get married. It will be obligatory but almost impossible and impractical and not within the boy's own control. So, does that mean that the rule can be restated as...if someone has fear of falling into sin and is able to get married, then it is obligatory to get married. But if someone is not able to get married, then it is obligatory on him to have no fear of falling into sin? In other words, if a person knows that he
