  1. Sorry I meant I have to leave in a week.. 5 March to be exact IA!
  2. Salam, Sorry if this has been asked before. My question is for the ladies and please try to be considerate of my situation while replying. I’m leaving for Iraq Ziaarat with a group in a week from United States. My trip was planned just a couple of weeks ago and I was suppose to get done with my period well before the start of my trip (Hence, I didn’t take any pills to stop/delay my period). Unfortunately, my period is delayed and now it’s just 3 days before we leave for Iraq IA! There’s nothing that I can do at this time, so Im reaching out to find out what are my options in terms of visiting the shrines/Haram of the Imams while I’m in Iraq ( in case I get my period there). I’ve searched online and couldn’t find any answers. I know that a woman can’t enter a mosque or pray during her period but could you please tell me what limitations do I have have while visiting all the Holy places in Iraq? This includes Imam Ali’s house, Haram/shrine of Imam Ali, Imam Hussain, Hazrat Abbas, Imam Musa, Tilla e Zainab? Can I go in and sit in the courtyards without touching the tombs? Can I enter Masjid e Qufa? Please let me know, it would really mean a lot to me. Thahk you,
  3. So if I go out now and buy a painting that doesn't depict any false religious deity but still has any generic pictures of people , that should be ok to hang in the house?
  4. Thank you everyone. I see now that I made a mistake in buying that painting, though unintentional but a mistake nevertheless. I'll just go and return it. Thank you again for your time and replies, and I'm not a "brother" but a sister:) P.S. I'm trying to attach the painting in this reply but don't know how to. To be honest, I didn't even know that it depicted Buddha until later!
  5. No as in it's not allowed to hang the painting? Can you please elaborate so that I can understand. Thank you!
  6. No as in it's not allowed to hang the painting?
  7. Salam everyone , I'm new to this forum and have a question. I'm a shia Muslim residing in the the USA, and I just bought a painting depicting Buddha's face to decorate my living room. According to shia law, is it permissible to hang such a piece of art in the house? It's obviously just for decorative purpose and the picture basically depicts budha's face with a few flowers on the sides. A few of my Sunni friends here pointed out that muslims can't have a picture of Buddha in the house as only Buddhists would have those. Is this true? Please help me solve my dilemma and if possible, please provide reference or a fatwa to help me understand. Thanks, Erum
