  1. Salam Alaykom. According to Shia marajea' viewpoint, it's necessary to avoid from vanilla extraxt, and its using is forbidden. because there is at least %35 alcohol in vanilla extract. Grand Ayatollah Khamenei (may Allah grant him long life):If the alcohol is not intoxicating and it is not in a liquid form either, it is halal. Grand Ayatollah Sistani (may Allah grant him long life): Given the supposition made in the question, it is not permissible. Although alcohol is ritually pure, it is forbidden to drink it. In case, however, there is alcohol in a foodstuff but the alcohol has evaporated and disappeared, there would be no problem in eating the food. That is to say, if the amount of alcohol existing in the food is so meager that it is generally considered as having no alcohol, there is no objection in eating that thing (food or drink). If indeed, there is 35% alcohol in vanilla extract, it is forbidden to eat it except for when it may have dissolved and disappeared in other ingredients. For example, if a little quantity of vanilla extract is used for cooking a lot of cakes and in the eye of 'urf (custom) it is not considered to be containing alcohol, it is permissible to eat the cake.
  2. For example put something (that if water reach it, change it's appearance) on your nail, then polish on and do wudo. After wudo take the polish, if it's appearance chenged, so the polish isn't barrier.
  3. If it is possible for you, ask who already did it. And also you can try it yourself, if it is barrier you stop using it and if it isnt barrier you can continue using it.
  4. Salam alaykom. While some claim that Islam’s huge population in India is a result of violence and forced conversion, the evidence does not back up this idea at all. Although Muslim leaders replaced Hindu kings in most areas, society was left as is. Stories of forced conversion are very few and often not credible enough to warrant academic discussion. If Islam spread through violence and warfare, the Muslim community today in India would exist only in the areas closest to the rest of the Muslim world. Thus only the western part of the subcontinent would have any Muslim population at all. What we see instead is pockets of Islam throughout the subcontinent. For example, Bangladesh and its 150 million Muslims are in the far east, separated from other Muslim-majority areas by Hindu lands in India. Isolated communities of Muslims exist also exist in western Myanmar, central India, and eastern Sri Lanka. These communities of Muslims are proof of Islam spreading peacefully throughout India, regardless of whether or not a Muslim government existed there. If Islam spread by force as some claim, these communities of Muslims would not exist. Islam is an integral part of India and its history. As the Indian subcontinent remains today a multi-ethnic and multi-religious place, it is important to understand the position Islam has in the region. The political claims that some making regarding Islam as if it is an invading religion and foriegn to the people of India need to be defied with the truth of Islam’s peaceful spread throughout India.
  5. Salam Alaykom. Yes, what you heard is correct and according to Marajea': Wearing gold bracelets, watchs and rings unproblematic assuming the water encounters the required skin areas from above downwards.
  6. Salam alaykom. It is barrier if it prevents water from reaching the nail underneath, but if it doesn't prevent water from reaching the nail, because of using new methods in this kind of nail and you are certain about it, so you can do it and also doing wudu. Indeed it depends on you that wheter you are certain about reaching water the nails or not.
  7. Yes. You're right. I have forgotten these two. Now i remember nothing save what i said and what you mentioned to.
  8. As i said all of them have conditions. For example if hindus or buddhist are in the war with muslims, yes they must be killed. Because they become Kafir H'arbi. But as long as they obey the rules and regulations of the Islamic government under which they live , do not anything contrary to the treaty their rule and do not wage the war against muslims will be the same as that of Mua'ahids (those who have a peace treaty with Islamic state and Muslims.
  9. Salam Alaykom. It is obligatory to do qaḍā’ of all the prayers that you did in the state of janābah. However, the fasts that you kept in this state without knowing any thing about the state of janābah are correct and sufficient, and there is no need to do their qaḍā’. There is another point that it is obligatory to perform the qaḍā’ of all the prayers that you are certain you missed after becoming ritually mature.
  10. Salam Alaykom. What is certain is that there is a consensus among the Islamic sects on the Prophet’s infallibility regarding the reception and conveyance of revelation, but that being the case in his everyday life isn’t unquestionably accepted. According to the beliefs of the Sunni school of thought, derived from their authentic resources, Sunnis do not believe in the infallibility of the Prophet regarding issues other than revelation, thus there is no reason to state their arguments in proving it. They simply believe in the infallibility of the Prophet regarding the reception and conveyance of revelation and their reason as to why he is infallible is that we must be able to trust what the Prophet says and that he has received and conveyed the message of God correctly. However, a group of Sunnis believe that the Prophet is definitely infallible before major and minor sins that will yield hatred towards him – both before and after becoming prophet. For more detail you can see following page: http://www.islamquest.net/en/archive/question/fa5436
  11. Salam alaykom. Following crimes led to death sentence according to Islamic teachings: 1- Adultery ( having sexual intercourse with married woman) 2- Rape ( act of physically forcing another to have sexual intercourse) 3- Sonomy ( homosexually) 4- Murder 5- Apostasy 6- Polytheism But you should consider that all of them (these crimes) have many condition to be proved.
  12. Salam Alaykom. Pray to stop existing, is detestable (Makrooh) in Islam. Because this kind of dua leads to hopelessness from God's mercy. But you should consider that your prayer is include a condition that make it valid. In fact you pray to stop existing if your life leads to earning hell. Any way you can pray in other word, I mean you pray in this way: Oh God, give me an opportunity to end my life as a right muslim. This kind of prayer, had been advised by our Imams and in Islamic teachings.
  13. Salam Alaykom. It's necessary to know how your friend come to this conclusion that his fiancee has avrelation (muta'a) whit another one. In this dangerous matters we must be carefull, because judging people whiteout reliable reason, lead to one of the greatest sins. Specially when his fiancee rejects his claim, because this rejaction means that she avoid from this doing or she wants to cut it off whiteout knowing anybody. There is a narration qouted from one the infallible Imams in this content, that if 50 men impute a person to a wrong doing, but s/he refuses, you should trust him/her and reject all imputation, save the evidences pass 50 men. Alhamdulellah
  14. Salam Alaykom my bro: Regarding to your condition, the girls doesn't need to seek permition of her father Because her father doesn't have competency of permission. In the following situations, it will not be necessary for a woman to seek the permission of her father or paternal grandfather, before getting married:If she is not a virgin. If she is a virgin, but her father or paternal grandfather refuse to grant permission to her for marrying a man who is compatible to her in the eyes of Shariah, as well as custom. If the father and the grandfather are not in any way willing to participate in the marriage. If they are not in a capacity to give their consent, like in the case of mental illness etc. If it is not possible to obtain their permission because of their absence, or such other reasons, and the woman is eager to get married urgently. alhamdulellah.
  15. Salam Alaykom. The dogs and pigs which live on land are najis, and even their hair, bones, paws and nails, and every liquid substance of their body, is najis. So even if it's body and your cloth was dry, but left it's hair on your cloth you should pick it up, then say prayer.
  16. Salam Alaykom. It's better to do some tasks that our Imams have been recommended us, and these tasks are the followings: 1- reciting sura Yasin. 2- reciting sura Saffat. 3- doing Talging according to what written in Mafatih'. 4- saying Shahadatain. 5- acknowledgment to Imams, one by one. 6- reciting these sentences: لا اِلهَ اِلا اللَّهُ الْحَليمُ الْكَريمُ لا اِلهَ اِلا اللَّهُ الْعَلِىُّ الْعَظيمُ سُبْحانَ اللَّهِ رَبِّ السَّمواتِ السَّبْعِ وَ رَبِّ الاَْرَضينَ السَّبْعِ وَ ما فيهِنَّ وَ ما بَيْنَهُنَّ وَ ما تَحْتَهُن وَ رَبِّ الْعَرشِ الْعَظيمِ وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعالَمينَ وَالصَّلوةُ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ الطَّيِبينَ For more detail you can refer to Mafatih al-Janan (written by shaikh Abbas Qomi).
  17. Death penalty is for both of them. But today the second part (i.e: death penalty for public apostasy) does't perform exactly. Because of some limitation and pressure by allegedly human right groups.
  18. Salam alaykom. If he announced his/her veiwpoint publicly, s/he will faced with death penalty. I wanna to add anything else here: in addition to some intelligible reasons for some Islamic laws, there is some other unintelligible reasons for controversial laws that are beyond of our understanding. So in these cases wo should practice our obedience toward God. It doesn't mean that these laws did not have any reason. Because we believe God is the wisest in the existence. Therefore he order us in a wise manner. But also we can make some uncertain reasons (Hikmah) for these laws. For example God ruled death penalty in this case because, s/he leave his/her prominent situation (thas is borning and being in the muslim family) while many people all around of the world from non-muslim family seeking true religion and in the end convert to islam and shia. Alhamdulellah.
  19. Salam Alaykom. According to grand Ayatollah Sistani, you cannot follow another marjaa' if you oppose with him. It's his viewpoint in his Resalah: 7. If an A'lam Mujtahid gives a fatwa on some matter, his follower cannot act in that matter on the fatwa of another Mujtahid. But if he does not give a fatwa, and expresses a precaution (Ihtiyat) that a man should act in such and such a manner, for exam ple if he says that as a precautionary measure, in the first and second Rak'at of the namaz he should read a complete Surah after the Surah of "Hamd", the follower may either act on this precaution, which is called obligatory precaution (Ihtiyat Wajib), or he may act on the fatwa of another Mujtahid who it is permissible to follow. Hence, if he (the second Mujtahid) rules that only "Surah Hamd" is enough, he (the person offering prayers) may drop the second Surah. The position will be the same if the A'a lam Mujtahid expresses terms like Ta'mmul or Ishkal.
  20. Salam Alaykom According to islamic teaching, in the time of occultation of Imam Mahdi(a,j) the door of Islamic laws, don't close and we should observe all practical laws. Even Hodood like death sentences. And the responsibility of performance of these laws, are in the hand of qualified jurists. Alhamdulellah.
  21. Salam Alaykom. Other scholars like Ayatollah Makarem believe that Aisha was 19 when she entered to Prophet house. There are some narrations that said Aisha was 9 or even 7 when she had been married with Prophet. But there is some evidences that prove these narrations weren't reliable. Because some of these narrations quoted by Aisha herself, so we cannot rely upon these narrations. And some other narrations narrated by Hisham Ibn O'rvah and his narration in this regard quoted by Iraqi narraters, Whereas Hisham traveled to Iraq in his latest year of his age in the age of 71 and scholars said he forgot many things in that age, so we cannot rely upon his narrations. Some other narrations in this regard narrated by Ibn A'amera (nephew of Aisha) and he was 5 in the time of Aisha marriage with Prophet. So it's very far that he narrated this detailed narration in the age of 5. Alhamdulellah
  22. Salam alaykom. There is a mathematic solution to know age of Aisha exactly. Bokhari qouted from Aisha herself thas she had been married with Prophet, 3 years after death of Khadija (s.a). Whereas Khadija (s.a) died in the 10th of Bea'tha, so date of Aisha marrige with Prophet was in the 13th of Bea'tha. Another point is this: if we compare age of Aisha whit age of her sister Asma, we can conclude the exact age of Aisha in the time of marrige with Prophet. Asma was 10 years older than Aisha and Asma was 27 in the first year of Hijra (Maa'refato al-ashab, vol 6, page 3253, no 3769) and she died in the 73th year of Hijra in the age of 100. So Aisha had 17 years old in the first year of Hijra. Therefore she had married with Prophet in the age of 17, but their wedding ceremony held two years after hijra. So the result is, that Aisha had married with Prophet and entered to his house in the age of 19. Alhamdulellah.
  23. Salam alaukom. About 50 years ago, When grand Ayatoallah Boroojerdi was alive, he built organization of Dar al-Tagrib by conction with Jameato Al-Azhar in Egypt. In that time the supreme of al-Azahar was Sheykh Shaltoot. He was one of the sunni scholars that under light of Ayatoallah Boroojerdi's guidance, tried to made friendship btw shia and sunni muslims. One of his main and important tasks, was recognizing Shia, as one of the formal and official sects of Islam. Before that time Shia considered as a misguided sects of Islam. alhamdulellah.
  24. Salam alaykom bro. 

    I have a little information about your question. 

    You can  register in Huzah Ilmiah in Qom. 

    But you should consider that Huzah for foreign students is diffrent from  homeland students. Therefor you can visit following website that related to Huzah for foreigner students.


    you can chose Urdo or English language  from top of the website. 

    Another point is that you dont need to learn Arabic or Persian language. Because in the first year of your intering to Jame al-Mustafa (university of al-Mustafa) you will have some curses that learn to you both languages  

    I wish the best for you.


  25. Salam alaykom. Certainly it's acceptable to bring it's Venison for you family or selling it to save money. And also you can hunt Haram meat animals, like bear, just for selling bearskin, not for eating it's meat.
