What does Islam say about writing fiction stories such as novels or short stories? I am not talking about adult or horror stories, although i am fascinated by horror and I am currently writing a horror story but I might never share it with anyone if it crosses the line. I find the art of story writing to be an excellent accompaniment to my psychology studies. By exploring different characters and their states of mind it helps me to deal with issues in my own life too, especially childhood. I enjoy creating chemistry between different characters. Writing stories also helps me to relax and express myself which has been a major issue in my life. I also think it has the potential to promote positivity in society between people and address complicated issues. Is there anything that islam does not allow in writing or reading fiction stories?
Salaams, This year , Ramadhan has fallen on a very important study and exam period of mine as these exams will determine whether I get into University. Due to this, I haven't been fasting as having water improves my concentration whilst learning. I tried fasting and struggled to concentrate, got very tired and struggled to understand concepts. It was my niyyah to fast this month, and every morning I make an intention to fast, but then break my fast saying it is hard for me to study. I do taqleed of Ayotallah Sistani, who says break the fast when it is unbearable, and I find it unbearable to study without any water or energy. I tried fasting at night but struggled a lot as Im not an evening person and have never been able to study in the evening. I live in the UK where the fasts are 19 hours long, so it becomes very difficult for me. Could you advise me on whether I should be paying kaffarah on this and what I should do? Thank you
Salam all, I have heard everyone talk about marriage and divorce but less about iddah, What are the conditions of iddah of that of a divorcee and a widow? what do they have to do? I have heard just brief conditions from sunnis saying: She can't dress up she can't go out for pleasure purposes, only if she needs to She (of course) can't marry and receive proposals are these the same in Shia fiqh? Does anyone know of anything else? thanks
Al salam alycom, I live in a western country, in which there are many products that is made of real leather, and many of the products states that is "made in Italy" or "made in France" for instance. However most of the leather that is used in for instance car seats and bags have been gone through machines and have been "treated" by for instance colors and other products. As the leather is treated it will be coated and treated. In this case, due to the procedures that the leather has undergone such as coloring and other chemical procedures will this not prevent the leather from getting wet, as it is only the surface that is getting wet and thus for instance rain/water and sweat will not reach the leather itself? And for instance will this not make the leather as istihala? (As There are also many leather products that does not smell nor looks like leather because of the color used). I hope my question was clear. Wa salam.
Salam everyone, I'm not sure how to pose the question but I guess what I'm wondering is if for example: Somebody I know killed a family member and I'm 100% certain that such person killed her/him... am I allowed to "make justice" with my own hands? e.g: killing them too? is it a sin in fiqh? Does Allah gives us the opportunity to make justice with our own hands? or are we supposed to just let it go because killing the person that killed ur mom, dad, sibling, child, etc would be haram? I mean I know we are able to battle and that self-defense killing is not a sin but...if we have the chance to make justice for something personal such as the example I gave, is it a sin?
(bismillah) What is the ruling upon making a framed jigsaw puzzle which contains pictures of characters of video games (i.e final fantasy, bleach), is it permissible to be given as a present to a friend? Is it permissible to give action figures as presents to friends?
