  1. Sermon 202 What Amir al-mu'minin said on the occasion of the burial of Sayyidatu'n-nisa' (Supreme lady) Fatimah (p.b.u.h.) while addressing the Holy Prophet at his grave. (ومن كلام له (عليه السلام روي عنه أنّه قاله عند دفن سيدة النساء فاطمة صلّى الله عليها، كالمناجي به رسول الله (صلى الله عليه وآله) عند قبره O Prophet of Allah, peace be upon you from me and from your daughter who has come to you and who has hastened to meet you. O Prophet of Allah, my patience about your chosen (daughter) has been exhausted, and my power of endurance has weakened, except that
  2. Eventually, your parents should meet him. You definitely don't need to tell your parents the whole truth. They don't need to know you two are temporarily married. If he meets your criteria, you could just introduce him to your parents as someone who is asking your hand. They definitely want your happiness and they would help you in making your final decision.
  3. Salaam, "A Saudi man" may or may not marry a widow. Make sure YOUR Saudi man does. I don't believe it's fair to judge people solely based on where they're coming from. Even if we accept certain stereotypes about Khaliji men, we all know that there are always exceptions. Maybe your Saudi man doesn't have any of the things that your dad doesn't like about Khaliji men. Of course! I don't see why not. If being his only wife and never residing in Saudi are important for you, you could put them as conditions into your marriage contract (Aqd-Nikah). I don't know if your da
  4. I also advise you to remember death and to lessen your heedlessness towards it. Why should you be heedless of Him Who is not heedless of you? Why expect from him (i.e., the angel of death) who will not give you time? The dead whom you have been watching suffice as preachers. They were carried to their graves, not riding themselves, and were placed in them but not of their own accord. It seems as if they never lived in this world and as if the next world had always been their abode. They have made lonely the place where they were living, and are now living where they used to feel lonely. T
  5. Salaam, It is mentioned in Al-Baqara:28: وَاسْتَشْهِدُوا شَهِيدَيْنِ مِن رِّ‌جَالِكُمْ ۖ فَإِن لَّمْ يَكُونَا رَ‌جُلَيْنِ فَرَ‌جُلٌ وَامْرَ‌أَتَانِ مِمَّن تَرْ‌ضَوْنَ مِنَ الشُّهَدَاءِ ... And call upon two of your men to act as witnesses; and if two men are not available, then a man and two women from among such as are acceptable to you as witnesses ...
  6. Salaam, I'm so sorry and will pray for you. Regarding your question, did you break the Mutah before doing the Nikah? It's not permissible to do the Nikah while being in Mutah. If the fixed period of the Mutah has not ended yet and the two want to do the Nikah, the husband should pardon the wife for the rest of the period of Mutah, and then do the Nikah.
  7. Salaam, From sistani.org [1] and [2]: 2063. There are many Haraam deals and businesses, some are mentioned below: [...] Sale and purchase of those things which are usually utilised for haraam acts only, like (idol, cross, musical instruments, and) gambling tools [...] 2076. If a thing which can be used for halal purposes is sold with the intention of putting it to haraam use - for example, if grapes are sold so that wine may be prepared with them, the transaction is haraam, and as a precaution the deal is void. However, if the seller does not sell it with that Niyyat, but only knows that
  8. Salaam, From sistani.org 1069. It is necessary that there should be nothing between the forehead of the person offering prayers, and the thing on which he offers Sajdah. ... Your face could be fully covered during your prayer. My relatives also cover themselves like the photo you've shared. They wear a scarf (Maghnaeh) and a veil (Chadoor). The scarf does not cover their forehead completely, but they cover their entire face with the veil. When they go down for Sujood, the veil opens and exposes the face and their forehead touches turbah.
  9. Salaam, Changing adults is almost impossible, in my opinion, if they themselves don't want it. You, however, have a better chance of motivating them through showing love, friendship, and kindness. Based on what you said, you're not sure that he drinks. You just saw a picture of him holding a cup of (allegedly) beer. He might just hold it for the picture and did not drink from it. If I were you and I wanted to talk to him about it, I would go to him and tell him to ask his friend to remove the picture because your parents may see the picture and may think he drinks. Again, if there is a sligh
  10. From Sistani.org: The consent of the father or the paternal grandfather is not required in the marriage of a non-virgin woman (that is, a girl who had previously married and had sexual intercourse). But the case of the woman who had lost her virginity because of fornication or another cause is like that of a virgin.
  11. Salaam, It seems to be all talking about the haram act of making the script and pages of the holy Qur'an najis. It doesn't necessary say that some inks are inherently najis, it says if it is najis, then don't use it to write the holy Qur'an. The ink could become najis in so many different ways (e.g., with a drop of blood or alcohol or ...). It says that if the ink is najis you cannot use it to write even one word of the holy Qur'an.
  12. Salaam, This may concern some of you, so I decided to bring it to your attention. It's not permissible to use external objects for sexual pleasure. Dotted condoms are usually advertised to enhance and maximize stimulation and pleasure. So I recently asked sistani.org to see if using them is permissible. This is the response I got in Farsi: بسمه تعالى اگر لذتی حاصل شود که مستند به این شیء خارجی باشد جایز نیست موفق باشید www.sistani.org دفتر مرجع عالیقدر آقای سید علی سيستانى - بخش استفتائات which translates to: If the pleasure is due to this external object, then it is not permis
  13. The question was: "I would like to understand if it were religiously allowed for both parties, how would the male gender feel and react?" So, to be clear, I meant since this hypothetical question asks about something which is not in harmony with the nature of the male, female, family, and society, a natural reaction would be dislike, discomfort, uneasiness, and unpleasantness. I'm also aware that there could be those who do not react this way, but having a strong belief in what I first said, I think those are exceptions, and exceptions tend to exist almost always.
