  1. Is it allowed to sell food/drinks during Ramadan according to the Islamic Law? It is quite permissible. Not all people are obliged to fast because the buyer might be a traveler or a sick person who is not able to fast. He also might intend to take the food with him to home an deat it after sunset! It is, however, morally respectful to keep restaurants closed up to sunset.
  2. Is the conflict between Sunni and Shia just a political fight? Actually it is mostly ideological. The primary disagreement is about the successorship of the Prophet. Shia believe in it as a part of religion and they believe Imam (successor of the Prophet) must be identified through Allah’s word because Imam is going to clarify and interpret the religion. On the contrary, Sunnis believe it is like any other government specified by people.
  3. If I win a cell phone out of chance, is it haram in Islam to keep it? What kind of chance? Was it a gambling or a contest? Whatever is gained out of a gambling is Haram. To win a contest leading to a reward does not matter.
  4. The same view on every other hadith! The sect followed by a narrator is not a concern when exploring a hadith in shia’s view. The primary element is reliability of the narrator. This “reliability” excludes two types of narrators : the one who lies and the one who never reports accurately. Whoever fulfills this major element and his beliefs don’t make him lie or ignore the accuracy of report and is not influenced by his sectarian feelings would be a valid narrator in shia’s eyes. You hardly can find one such narrator in Sunni sources, though! Apart from Sunni narrators, there are two general problems with Sunni hadith books: 1. They consider sayings of the Prophet’s companions as a source of Shari’a while we believe only Infallibles deserve to be the source of God’s message. A great deal of their hadiths end to a companion not to the Prophet nor to an Infallible Imam. 2. Due to the governmental ban on writing hadiths of the Prophet which lasted for decades, most of their hadiths do not lead to the Prophet. On the contrary, Shia’s Imams reported a lot of sayings of the Prophet.
  5. There are two major purposes for sports which are not necessarily combined: first: to be healthy ; second: to be seen as a winner; Islam never forbade women to exercise or even practice professional sports for having a good health or even fitness. Rather, sport is quite approved in Islam as a way to refresh yourself. Islam, however, intends to have women the most dignified.. That is why there is a sort of limitation regarding women participating in public sports. Islam/It does not want women to be an antique good to satisfy thirsty eyes or a toy to entertain visitors. Women are allowed to have their own sports as long as they wear their obligated Hijab and no sexually attractive acts are processed by them.
  6. Ownership is respected in Islam to its fullest extent and is considered one’s right unless it is the case of illegal fortune. If someone robs a bank his power and his gun pointed toward the bank teller does not make him a real owner. By the way, it is government’s job to take care of justic and no one is allowed to do” Robbin Hoodic “ act. In another word “End does not justify means”!
  7. Not every icon is an idol. An idol is whatever represents a godly figure in people’s eyes and is worshiped by them.
  8. Not a sin unless you harm them , ruin their reputation , make fun of them or accuse them of some crims. But it is morally inappropriate .
  9. a) Which Shariah? If it is the legitimate Shariah establish based on the real and true word of God how could it lead to oppression ?Why should the God traet his creatures unfairly?? b) Which government? If it is a government chosen through divine principles to serve God’s servunts and acts based on God’s words how could deal with people oppressively?? c)which opperession? Is every social discipline considered as opperession? Who deserves to define “ Human Rights “ more than the God as the creater of humanbeings does? Not every home-made pack of rulling is a legitimate Shari’a and not every bearded man could be nominated as a member of a true Islamic government and not every limitation is opperession!!
  10. There are two theories among biologists regarding the creation of living beings including plants and animals. A) Transformism: The doctrine that living organisms have evolved from previously existing forms of unicellular beings that existed in oceans or in the mud deep underwater. This change is also called mutation. B) Fixism: The theory that the species alive today were identical to those of the past and that evolution does not happen. As of now, no one has seen mutation taking place in such a way as to cause substantial change to the main organs or limbs of an animal or to make something evolve into a different species. Therefore, we can simply guess that the accumulation of mutations might one day lead to metamorphic change and result in a variant form such as a reptile becoming a bird but this is never a decisive guess and it is only a conjecture because we have never encountered such mutations in the concrete external world. The discovery of an evolutional relationship among various beings does not hinder us from getting knowledge of God. Not only discovering such causes does not harm divine unity or our belief in the oneness of God but it also creates a fresh proof about the system of creation. Those who subscribe to evolution of various species of animals and the fixists especially Muslims rely on various Qur'anic verses to prove their side of the story. Both sides have made use of verses which have little relevance to their perspective on the subject-matter. It appears from the outward meaning of the verses of the Quran about the creation of Adam that he was first made of mud. After completion of his body, soul was blown into it whereupon all angels except Iblis prostrated themselves in front of him. The Quran's explanation in this regard shows that there had not been other genre or kinds of animals in between the creation of man and his present form. http://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/question/fa4014
  11. That is only about parents not grandparents except the case that the newborn's father is in charge of grandparents's expenses. By the way it is not forbidden but rather it is Makruh.
  12. Although we are not obliged to practice Friday Prayer it is not called Mustahab. Have a look at Sayed Sistani's fatwa: . Namaz-e-Jumuah is Wajib Takhyiri, which means that we have an option to offer Jumuah prayers, if its necessary conditions are fulfilled, or to offer Zuhr prayers. Hence, if Namaz-e-Jumuah is offered then it is not necessary to offer Zuhr prayer.
  13. It is better not to use although they are spiritually ( not jurisprudentially) sayed.
  14. So it is good to let the experts talk about every jurisprudential issue ( including WF) instead of drawing unproved ideas
  15. There are two independent issues : 1-practical rulings in Sharia which are jurisprudential laws about Sadat: these rulings are only about paternal relationship as you quoted from Sayed Khamenei: "Although, descendants of The Holy Prophet through their mothers also considered as his descendants, the criterion for being a sayyid — as far as Shar‘ī rulings are concerned — is paternal relationship". The reason is that the merits of every ruling lies on its proof. Khums, for example, is divided into two parts one of which is devoted to the people who are Hashimi and Hashimi in Arabic is used for the paternal descendants of Hashim. 2- The dignity and honor of being the descendant of the Prophet is not devoted to the paternal Sayed. The criterion for being a sayed is to be the descendant of Hashim through the father or mother. Therefor the criterion is not the descendant of the Prophet, Sayea Fatimah, or Imams.
