  1. Salam A catholic woman, separated from her husband for a couple years but not legally divorced in country of her origin (living abroad now), is converting to Islam. From sharia point of view, does she need a legal divorce from her catholic husband before marrying a muslim? If no, does she need to spend time in Iddah though she has been separated from husband for years. What is the required duration? If yes, are there any exceptions in case of hardship such as if it will be financially difficult for her to pursue divorce through country's legal channels or the husband not agreeing making it more difficult? Any specific verdicts from Ayotullah Sistani on this? Appreciate response from members with knowledge of the subject.
  2. Mohammad Fadllalah is not alive, can we follow his verdict now? I'm in taqleed of Ayotullah Sistani.
  3. Salamun Alayk, I have came across the following on ShiaChat in another thread. Someone posted it in Persian or Arabic (the link to the reference site didn't work) and translated it as following. Question: Can I do Mutah with a Virgin who has no objection to it, but we don’t tell her father because there is a fear that he will (or might) not give permission. What is our obligation? Answer: So, if the girl is Rashida means she can distinguish (or differentiate) between good and bad (evil) there’s no problem to it and father’s permission is not a condition. I just to ensure if this is authentic? Any brothers who have cross-checked this?

    Assalam O Alaikum This is my very first post to SHIACHAT. I am Syed Zia Abbas Rizvi and have polled for Mechatronics Engineeirng although I am studying Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering here at NED University Karachi as there was no option set for my field and the one which I found nearest is Mechatronics ( with common subjects as Robotics, CAD, CAM, CAE etc). It would have been Mechanical too as its a specialization of mechanical . WELLL ... Is there any NEDIAN on this forum? .. n form where did the rest of engineers graduate or are graduating? .. Allah Hafiz
