  1. In fiqh it’s not obligatory to support your wives equally in finance and emotion.
  2. If you touch the urine with your right hand then touch with your left hand, it is still an intrinsic nijasat. If the urine comes in contact with a hundred different hands, the urine being transferred will stay as an intrinsic nijasah. For urine to turn into first mutanajis, something else that’s wet has to come into contact with it, then that wetness will mix with urine. For example, if your left hand is wet with water and you touch it with your right hand that has urine, the wetness on your left hand turns to first mutanajis because the non najis liquid (water) on your hand got mixed with an intrinsic nijasah (urine). But if your left hand was dry and you touched it with your right hand that has urine, the urine will transfer to your left hand and that liquid will remain an intrinsic nijasah.
  3. The object(1), which contacts an intrinsically najis material and becomes najis, makes another thing(2) najis if they come into contact with each other when one of the two is wet. The latter makes, by obligatory caution, another thing(3) najis on contact. However this third extrinsically najis object does not make anything najis. This is a fatwa by Imam Khamenei, and I believe Sayed Sistani is the same concept but instead of the third contact becoming tahir it’s the second contact.
  4. 1. Water splashing into other parts of the body is normal as long as it’s not too much to the extent that it doesn’t look like your washing just your head anymore. 2. I’ve never heard of these mustahabat for ghusl, but those are mustahab for wudu. It’s mustahab to wash your hands first then gargle thrice before starting wudu.
  5. There are plenty of differences in fiqh between the two but the main one is the time period.
  6. Anyone that doesn’t believe in an obligatory act of Islam that’s agreed upon by all sects is a kafir. Since wilaya is not agreed by all sects, not believing it will not make you a kafir. I was only touching on the part where you said “tawheed is the deciding factor”, that’s all, because there are many deciding factors not just tawheed.
  7. So if one believes the oneness of Allah but doesn’t believe salah, fasting and haj as obligatory or part of Islam, wouldn’t that make him a kafir?
  8. Translating tafseers of the Qur'an can be quite challenging, because sometimes you understand and know the meaning but it’s hard to translate it to English. Below is a quick translation: And it says <and recite the Qur'an with measured [proper] recitation> The measured recitation of the Qur'an is that you read the Qur'an with the proper letter pronunciation, and this phrase is affiliated with: <arise the night> It means arise the night and recite the Qur'an with measured recitation. It is apparent that what is meant by the recitation of the Qur'an is its recitation in salah, or the salah itself, and mentions Allah in the expression of this verse: <Establish prayer at the decline of the sun [from its meridian] until the darkness of the night and [also] the Qur'an of dawn. Indeed, the recitation of dawn is ever witnessed>Al-Isra: 78. And it has been said: It means it is preferred to recite the Qur'an not just in salah.
  9. It means if you die as a mushrik, you won’t be forgiven, where if you are a mushrik in this world and convert to Islam, as long as you convert before you die you will be forgiven.
  10. It seems like the maraji’ have different opinions on this matter. Here’s what Imam Khamenei says: س: هل يجوز قتل الكلاب عمداً من دون سبب ؟ يجوز قتل الحيوانات المؤذية اذا لم تكن مملوكة لأحد، ولا يجوز ظلم الحيوانات اذا لم تكن المؤذية .
  11. Well if it’s treated like a domisticated animal, as in a pet, it will be considered a dog. If it’s treated like a wild animal, then wolf. Walahu a3lam.
  12. What brother @AStruggler said, it’s what they are considered by the ‘urf. If that hybrid is considered and treated as a dog by the ‘urf, it is najis, and if it is considered and treated as a wolf by the ‘urf, it is tahir.
  13. You forgot to ask yourself the most important question. When did the Prophet say this and for what reason? Every Hadith has a context. There are verses in the Qur'an that says to kill the kafirs, but when you look at the context it’s talking about during battles and wars.
  14. The divorce is invalid because there were no witnesses involved. The marriage is still intact. Also, saying the divorce three times does not make any difference, it’s the same as saying it once.
  15. I did not know there were cultures that don’t perform nikah during there engagement.
  16. If your engaged then he is Islamically your husband, unless your definition of engagement is something else.
  17. I don’t usually like posting long copy-paste posts but this explains it so well. His Holiness Ali (P) discarding such an incorrect concept through the analysis and interpretation of his words, states: فاذا كانت المرأة مزهوة لم تمكن من نفسها “If a woman continually observe a boundary and certain precautions in her own social relations, she will never be exploited and vulnerable. لم تمكن نفساً ً "She never allows herself to be misused.” فاذا كانت بخيله "If she has the characteristic of stinginess……" حفظت مالها و مال بعلها ".. she will safeguard her own property, that of her marital life and also that of her husband." فاذا كانت جبانة فرقت شيئ يعرض لها "If a woman be concerned, in social interactions she will have fright and together with precaution and apprehension driving away many calamities and contention as well.” Nevertheless, Imam Ali (P) considers the best characteristics of women as the worst attributes of man pointing out that from the Islamic point of view the role and position of woman is completely different from that of man in marital life. The nature and personality of woman had been created in a manner that is compatible with such characteristics and virtues. The martyr, Motahari states: "The reason why the characteristics mentioned in this narration are not considered in general, in its absolute state and include particular instances, is that regarding stinginess, if its general state is mentioned, it will be incompatible with the certainties of the Holy Qur’an. The verse: …وَمَنْ يُوقَ شُحَّ نَفْسِهِ فَأُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَ "Those who are shielded from their own avarice will be prosperous." (59:9) Considers the element of prosperity as the point opposite to stinginess. It is expected of a woman to be proud towards strangers and not towards the husband, other women and/or her relatives close to her. What is focused upon is the pride in order to safeguard chastity and perform social responsibilities. According to the above-mentioned verse, obsession of this world is condemned and one who can rescue oneself from this obsession and free oneself from worship of worldly matters or wealth will reach the stage of prosperity. So, it is not the best characteristic for a woman not to spend out of her property. Her Eminence Zahra, (P) as an example did not have stinginess in its general state. Stinginess is for the purpose of: المرأة راعية علي بيت اهلها “The woman is the supervisor and the one responsible inside the house, in the family and in relation with her husband.” As I have mentioned, Islam considers some characteristics favorable to woman, which are undesirable for man. Definitely, the general state of these characteristics because of its incompatibility with the certainties of the Holy Qur'an is not desired. The preference and encouragement of the characteristics of pride fear and stinginess is because of the vulnerability of woman. Stinginess and niggardliness is for the conjugal property according to Imam Ali (P) who states: اذا كانت بخيلة حفظت مالها و مال بعلها “Of course, both woman and man are responsible to safeguard conjugal property.” The woman has an essence called chastity, which is vulnerable in social interactions therefore, she must possess a characteristic required to guard this vulnerability. Throughout history nowhere has it been mentioned that a woman violated a man, on the contrary, there have been so many cases regarding violations against woman. Therefore, fear is for safeguarding the chastity of a woman and encouraging to have this characteristic is observing precaution. Accordingly, perseverance and sensitivity in defending chastity as the basis of personality and complement of woman’s dignity has been recommended to her. https://www.al-Islam.org/articles/womans-dignity-words-amir-ul-muminin-Ali-ibn-abi-talib-Abbas-Ali-shameli
  18. Even if she converted to Shia, if her husband is Sunni and divorces her by Sunni fiqh, the divorce will be valid. Watch this video for more clarification, at 4:25
  19. Shi’a rulings don’t apply to her, she must follow Sunni rulings. If she is considered divorced as per Sunni fiqh, then she is a divorced woman.
  20. Yes you can eat a small amount of clay (a pea size) of the graves of the Imams in junnatul baqi. Here is a narration: Abu Hamza Thumali said: I was in Mecca when I said to Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).), “May I be sacrificed on you! I have seen some of our companions take some clay of the holy shrine and seek cure with it. Does it contain any cure like they say?” Imam ((عليه السلام).) replied: It can be used as a cure even if it is collected four miles away from the tomb of Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام).). The same applies to the grave of my grandfather, Allah’s Messenger and the same applies to the clay of the graves of Imam Hasan ((عليه السلام).), Imam Sajjad ((عليه السلام).) and Imam Baqir ((عليه السلام).). Take some of it, for indeed it is a cure for every disease and a shield against any fearful matter. Nothing else from among that which is used to cure an illness can be compared to it, except supplication. Tradition 1-Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) said: The clay of Imam Hussain’s ((عليه السلام).) grave is a cure for every disease. When you eat it, recite the following: In the name of Allah and by Allah. O Allah! Make it (the cause of) extensive sustenance and beneficial knowledge (for me) and make it my cure from every disease. Indeed You have power over all things. Tradition 2- When you eat the clay of Imam Hussain’s ((عليه السلام).) grave, you should recite: O Lord of this blessed dust! And O Lord of this successor who is buried in it! Bless Muhammad and Aale Muhammad and make it the cause of beneficial knowledge and extensive sustenance for me and my cure from every disease. Tradition 3- Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) said: When you collect the clay of the Imam Hussain ((عليه السلام).) and place it in your mouth, recite: O Allah! I ask You through the right of this dust, through the right of the angel who held it, through the right of the Prophet who embraced it and through the right of the Imam who is buried in it to bless Muhammad and Aale Muhammad and to allow it to be a beneficial cure and an extensive sustenance for me and (allow it) to be my protection against any fear and disease. If you recite this, Allah will cure you and bestow you with health. Tradition 4- Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) said: Eating any clay is unlawful like eating pork. If anyone eats any clay which leads to his death, I will not pray on him, except the clay of Imam Hussain’s ((عليه السلام).) grave, for indeed it contains the cure for every disease. But one who eats it to satisfy a craving, will not find any cure in it. Tradition 5- Imam Baqir or Imam Sadiq ((عليه السلام).) said: Indeed Allah, the blessed and exalted, created Adam from clay. Hence He forbade mankind from eating clay. I (narrator) asked, “What about the clay of Imam Hussain’s ((عليه السلام).) grave?” Imam ((عليه السلام).) replied, “It is unlawful for people to eat their own flesh but is it permissible for them to eat our flesh?! It is permissible to eat a very little amount of it, as much as a pea.”
