  1. I know about the Sunni teaching that it's forbidden for a woman to wear a wig, but what is the Shia opinion on this? So far I have not been able to find any credible answer on this matter. Let's also assume that the woman in question observes proper modesty in her dress and actions.
  2. I looked up Muslim women in wars on Google and found this post that talks about some notable female warriors (among other high profile women): https://ballandalus.wordpress.com/2014/03/08/15-important-muslim-women-in-history/ As brother Sayed said, Nusayba b. Ka‘b al-Anṣārīyya did carry a sword and shield in the battlefield. She shielded the Prophet Muhammad from enemies during the battle and even sustained several lance wounds and arrows as she cast herself in front of him to protect him. It is said that after she sustained her twelfth wound, she fell unconscious and the first question she asked when she awoke (a day later in Medina) was “did the Prophet survive?” a testament to her loyalty and commitment to the new faith. The same article also mentions Khawla b. al-Azwar (d. 639). Another contemporary of the Prophet Muhammad. She is best known for her participation in the Battle of Yarmuk (636) against the Byzantines. According to later narratives of the Islamic conquests, authors described her as having the skill and fighting ability of the famed Muslim general Khālid ibn al-Walīd. I'm sure that there are many more too but I've found nothing to indicate that women aren't allowed to go to war. Throughout Islamic history there have been women in just about every sphere of life; education, politics, the marketplace, war, scholars, etc.
  3. Thank you for your answer, this is the kind of information I was requesting for clarification. Some ace people do masturbate and some don't, but it's also my understanding that if spouses masturbate each other it is permissible in that case?
  4. Thank you for your quick answer! Would you say that not getting married is the more recommended thing to do in such a case?
  5. According to Ayatollah Sistani it is permissible. Source: http://www.alulbayt.com/rulings/16.htm
  6. I'm curious to know what Islam says, if anything, on asexuality and being asexual. That is, a person who does not have any sexual desire for another of any gender. I already know how homosexuality is forbidden and marriage is encouraged etc. but extremely little has ever been written about asexuality. The only thing I've found is this: http://aboutislam.net/counseling/ask-the-scholar/miscellaneous-ask-the-scholar/how-islam-views-asexuality/ So based on this let's say that an asexual Muslim woman and an asexual Muslim man fall in love and get married but mutually agree to never have sexual intercourse, would this be permissible from a Shia point of view?
