    Shaikh Jawad got a reaction from Hameedeh in Doing Taqlid To A Marja That Passed Away?   
    Salam
    If you are staring Taqlid, you have to follow a living Mujtahid.
    Ayatollah Khamenei:
    In initiating taqlīd, one should not neglect caution in following a living and a most knowledgeable mujtahid.
    Source
    Ayatollah Sistani:
    It is necessary for the Mujtahid who is followed, to be male, Shi'ah Ithna Ash'ari, adult, sane, of legitimate birth, living and just ('Adil).
    Source
    But if you have followed a Mujtahid and he has passed away, the issue is different and you can follow him by the fatwa of a living Mujtahid.

    Shaikh Jawad got a reaction from Caliguy in Trimming the beard from the sides of face?   
    Salam dear brother!
    Most of Ulema believe shaving beard is not allowed and there is no difference between the sides and the chin as you mentioned.
    This is the fatwa of Ayatollah Sistani in this regard:
    Question: Is it permissible to shave the two sides of the face and leave the hair on the chin?Answer: Shaving the beard is haram based on obligatory precaution, and this includes the hair that grows on the sides of the face. However, there is no problem in shaving the hair that grows on the cheeks.Source
    But about what you mentioned, it goes back to what people commonly consider it. Look at these fatwas from Ayatollah Khamenei:
    Q1399: What is meant by jaws on which growing a beard is obligatory? Do they include the cheeks? 
    A: The criterion is that the common view recognizes it as a beard.
    This is also the same in the issue of the length of the beard:
    Q1400: What should the minimum and maximum length of a beard be?
    A: There is no definite measure. However, the criterion is based on what the common view recognizes as a beard. That said, it is disliked to let it grow longer than one’s own grasp. Source

    Salaam brother,
    There's no problem naming your sons after Aimma (a.s.) but you'll have then 4 Ali, 2 Hasan, 1 Hussain, 3 Mohammed, 1 Jaafar and 1 Musa.
    You will call Ali and you'll find 4 kids in front of you. 
    You can keep their names with titles like Ali Naqi, Mohammed Hadi etc.

    Shaikh Jawad got a reaction from Hameedeh in Is selling water haram?   
    As I studied there is no law concerning the issue you mentioned. Selling of water is not haram. Yes if a person's life is in danger and he is not able to buy water, you have to water him in order to stay alive, but in normal situations it is not haram.

    Shaikh Jawad got a reaction from MuslimahAK in love in marriage and children   
    You have mentioned 2 different things:
    1- The love before marriage would prevent boy/girl to see many facts. It might lead to a successful marriage, but it is also able to turn to the divorce. But when it is arranged they can compare their values and their plan for life and many other things.
    2- But the love after marriage between man and woman and toward children should be on the highest possible level.
    Zahra (sa) the daughter of Muhammad (pbuh) said: The most valuable men are those who are kind and generous to their wives.
    Rasul Al-Allah Muhammad (pbuh) said: The best of you is the one who treats his wife in the best manner.
    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: A woman would not forget his husband's saying: I love you.
    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: Kiss your children as much as you can for Allah will ascend you in the heaven for each kiss.

    Shaikh Jawad got a reaction from 090078601 in I accidentally prayed zuhr before jummah prayer   
    Correct!
    This is the fatwa of Ayatollah Sistani and Ayatollah Khamenei as well:
    "It is wajib-e takhyeri, meaning it is obligatory but optional at the same time; that is, if a person says Friday prayer, he does not have to say Noon prayer. And if he prays Noon prayer he does not have to say Jumah prayer."

    Shaikh Jawad reacted to sharif110 in What are the four sources?   
    What are the four sources from which Muslim scholars extract religious law or rulings, called fatwa, and who authorizes it?

    Alsalamu Alaykum
    The four sources are:
    1. The Holy Qur'an: revealed unto Muhammad (p.b.u.h) by Allah, the Exalted, and the Wise.
    2. The Traditions of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and his progeny (as): (these include their sayings, actions and tacit consent)
    3. Consensus: as a strict condition the Shi’ite jurists must include at least one authentic narration of an Infallible Imam (as) for it to be considered as a basis from which a revealed ruling can be derived. This differs from the consensus of the other schools of thought in so far as their derived ruling through consensus does not have to be based on the condition mentioned above.
    4. Intellect: There is no doubt that all our revealed rulings are derived and based on these four sources. However, as far as morality and human etiquette are concerned, and as far as our subject matter is concerned, what better source can there be than the noble life style of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and that of his blessed family (as).
     
    The conclusion that one would reach, after having understood this, would be that the lay person would have to learn and fulfil the basic fundamental rulings of Islam. These rulings are categorized as obligatory (wajib), recommended (mustahab), prohibited (haram), disapproved (makruh) and permissible (mubah).
     
     
    A person who extract religious law or rulings from those above mentioned sources is called “Mujtahid”. Mujtahid is a jurist competent enough to deduce precise inferences regarding the commandments from the holy Qur'an and the Traditions of the holy Prophet (p.b.u.h) and his progeny (as) by the process of Ijtihad.
     
    There were not various opinions in laws and rulings in the age of Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h) and infallible Imams, because people in such a case used to ask infallibles (masumin) to answer their questions and remove their ambiguities. But we live currently in the age of the absence of infallible Imam (as), so mujtahid is not able to obtain Imam’s opinion in a special matter. Therefore he must deduce laws and rulings from the holy Qur'an and the Traditions which are accessible to him. Therefore a mujtahid is faced to various difficulties to deduce and extract laws from Traditions.
     
    There are at least four fundamental aspects that leads mujtahid (jurist) to difficulties:
    1. Document of Tradition: May a jurist count a person, whose name is mentioned among documents of a tradition, as a trustworthy and reliable man whereas another jurist does not believe that.
    2. Ambiguity in the contexts of Traditions: Unlike to our age, sometimes the terms used in the texts of narrations were clear to understand at the age of infallibles (as). For instance, the exact meaning of the word ‘ghina’ (singing) was clear for people in the age of infallibles (masumin) whereas is an ambiguous concept now which has various meanings.
    3. Ambiguity in issuing of Traditions: infallible Imams (as) lived at the age of oppressor governments of ‘bani-omayyah’ and ‘bani-abbas’. These governments were enemies of them, so they did not allow infallible Imams (as) to express freely their opinions. So sometimes they were enforced to say what not true rules were, in such a manner that they performed ‘Taqqiah’ or said their ideas implicitly. A mujtahid must know these specific conditions.
    4. Difference in foundations of the Principles of Jurisprudence: The most important branch of learning in preparation for jurisprudence is the principles of jurisprudence, a delightful subject and one originated by Muslims. The Principles of Jurisprudence is, in reality, the "study of the rules to be used in deducing the Islamic laws" and it teaches us the correct and valid way of deducing from the relevant sources in jurisprudence. The idea of each mujtahid (jurist), according to sources, documents and foundations of his viewpoint in jurisprudence and principle, is likely to be different with another mujtahid, so it leads them to have different ideas (Fatwa).
     
     
    As a result, various ideas (Fatwa) are undeniable to be appeared according to these difficulties that mujtahid faces to them.
