  1. Salam As per Ayt. Sistani, one of the recommended ghusls is : 19. the ghusl for shaving one’s hair (ḥalq); https://www.sistani.org/english/book/48/2190/ Like Friday ghusl, this ghusl suffices for wudhu. But is this talking about halq after umrah/hajj, or is it just any shaving of head?
  2. Ws. If you have gloves on, then ghusl is not required. If you are only holding bones, then again ghusl is not needed. If the ghusl does become wajib, it would be Ghusl mas-e- mayyut (touching of dead body), but this can be easily avoided.
  3. بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ Get the point ?
  4. The Quran is not silent about the successor of Prophet. In fact, it is not silent about anything at all. It is a detailed explanation of Everything (including succession to Prophet): لَقَدْ كَانَ فِى قَصَصِهِمْ عِبْرَةٌ لِّأُوْلِى ٱلْأَلْبَـٰبِ‌ۗ مَا كَانَ حَدِيثًا يُفْتَرَىٰ وَلَـٰكِن تَصْدِيقَ ٱلَّذِى بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَتَفْصِيلَ كُلِّ شَىْءٍ وَهُدًى وَرَحْمَةً لِّقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُون "In their history verily there is a lesson for men of understanding. It is no invented story but a confirmation of the existing (Scripture) and a detailed explanation of everything, and a guidance and a
  5. Again, I am not disagreeing with you. There are other very high ranking Islamic personalities who chose to remain single and never got married, but they all had justifiable reasons. A person imprisoned for life in a jail with no possibility of marriage or mutah has a valid reason to be celibate. Imam Musa Kazim (عليه السلام) was in dungeon for years and they tried to seduce him with a beautiful woman. Instead of sin, he could have married her or did mutah with her, but he chose to not even look at her. Maryum (عليه السلام) was unmarried. Masooma Qum was also unmarried. Amongst other people, Bi
  6. I understand and agree. Some people may have valid and genuine reasons to remain unmarried for the entire lives. Prophet Isa as. is an example from Allah himself. I was only talking about people who remain unmarried without any reasonable justification.
  7. I think marriage is not entirely about what we feel about it or how much we need it or don't need it; I believe it is mainly about how would Allah view us if we intend to stay unmarried. I think deliberate intention to stay unmarried without a valid reason may be considered as an insult to Allah (naoudobillah). The reason for this I believe is that being "single", "alone", "independent" are specific characteristics of Allah himself. He has not chosen a spouse for himself and He has no children and He is so proud of being single that He wants us to repeat this concept in our minds and say

  9. I make these decisions sometimes twice in a day.
  10. This is an issue I face every single day of my life. Not a day goes by when I have to think about what is the right answer to the questions you have asked. I see dying covid patients almost daily. It is an extremely complex issue and just like you mentioned there is not much input from marjas. I have to make End of Life decisions myself and many, many times I wonder what is the Islamic rule for the scenarios I came across as routine in my work place. When to stop antibiotics, when to deny NG feed, when to stop checking obs (bp, temp, heart rate etc) for a patient when he is dying, but might su
  11. Answer to this topic is in Dua Kumail from Imam Ali(عليه السلام). ___ My Protector, so how should he remain in the chastisement, while he has hope for Your previous clemency? am kayfa tu-limuhun-naru wa huwa ya-malu fadhlaka wa rah-mataka Or how should the Fire cause him pain while he expects Your bounty and mercy? am kayfa yuh-riquhu lahibuha wa anta tas-mau' saw-tahu wa tara makanah Or how should its flames burn him, while You hearest his voice and seest his place? am kayfa yash-tamilu ‘ailayhi zafiruha wa anta ta’lamu dha’fah Or how should its
  12. Yes, but you cannot just pick it up from there. It is the property of the centre. If you pick up without permission and pray on it, I'm not sure but it might be considered praying using usurped item thus making the prayer invalid. If the centre management allows then that's fine.
  13. Yes, right ... but the consummation is not a requirement for walima. Usually the walima is on the day after the wedding night but many couples don't consummate their marriage on their first night for a variety of reasons, but the walima goes ahead.
