Fasting on Someone's Behalf

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 05/21/2017 - 19:59

Salamun Alaykum With Ramadan fast approaching, I would like to make an inquiry to whether or not you can fast on someone else's behalf. This is in regards to my mother as she is unable to fast due to an illness of hers and is unable to make up these fast, she does pay Fidyah each year but I was wondering if I would be able to fast on her behalf during the holy month of Ramadan. I of course would make up these fasts on my behalf later in the year, however I was wondering if it is necessary or even allowed in Islam? Many Thanks, may Allah bestow his blessings on you.

Khums on Student Loan

Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 03/06/2017 - 14:58

Salaamun alykum, I hope you are well inshA. I was calculating my khums and was wondering about the following: I get a maintenance grant as student loan that is only partially used by the end of each term. I have to pay back all of this after I complete my University course. Therefore, would khums apply (if at all) to my account including the government loan or only on my personal savings excluding the loan?

Please advise.

Thanks, Khudayja

Assalamu alaikum I have something that I'm curious about. I'm from Kpk northern part, I was going to apply for driving license but I found out that the initial test is screwed. They don't let you pass even if you meet the requirements. They schedule the test each 6 months, which is rather long indeed. But then I found out that few people paying extra money to skip the hustle of initial and get their license. Does it fall in the category of "Rishwat"?

Songs in Children's Cartoons/Movies

I know that music is haram because of the harm and hypocrisy it causes, However is classical music which is peaceful and not accompanied with idle talk haram? Are children songs found in Disney movies also haram? If what is being sung is not sinful And teaches good moral then is it permissible?

Salam, My question has two parts 1) Is it permissible to learn and play the piano for music which is mot suitable for entertainment or amusement gatherings. 2) Is it permissible to own a piano. I have read that "“An instrument of haram entertainment” means that its physical shape—that gives its value and eventually the purpose for acquiring it— is not suitable except for use in haram entertainment.". I find this a bit ambiguous.

Rights of a Woman

Submitted by Anonymous on Fri, 01/20/2017 - 21:30

Hi, I'm a married man and been living away from my wife for a long time. My wife and I have no intimate relationship for many years. I became friendly with another female who is divorced and we became close. Unfortunately we committed Zina. I did tell her that I would marry her if this happened. Unfortunately I haven't married this second woman and although my wife has given permission for a second marriage I know this second girl won't entertain being a second wife. I'm not sure what to do. I am lost as to what is right and what is wrong?

Recovering Financial Loss

Assalam o alaikum I run an Interior company and I did a job for one of my clients against a agreed value. The work is being completed and around 80% payment payment is also being done. I am following up for the balance payment for the past many years but all in vain. On top of that the client is also not in the country for 1year and is not intending to pay us as well. They have not paid to many other people like us. Recently I came to know that one of their asset(car) is left behind and they have actually thrown it. I some how managed to get the keys from their office.

Electing a Non-Muslim Ruler

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 01/08/2017 - 22:54

Salam. I live in a muslim majority country, but a secular one. Every non-muslim could be a ruler here (president or governor) if he/she gets elected democratically. however, as a shia muslim who concerns about Islamic law or fatwas, living in a state like this, am I still obligated to stand for muslim candidates regardless, if their capability in governance isn't as good as the non-muslim ones? And are there some exceptions according to Islam when non-muslim could be elected as a ruler by muslims?
