Salaam Alaykum.

If one has undergone a surgery due to which they are not allowed to bend or sit down on the ground, they dont have a choice but to sit on a chair and pray wajib salaah, correct?
Now, if such a prohibition by the doctors means a number of months, and the patient wishes to offer their qadha salaah of previous years, be it before or after surgery, what is the ruling? Can they offer the qadha salaah in that sitting position?

In our Masjid, even though there are other rooms assigned to ladies, ladies gather in men's musallah prayer hall, and females
deliver speeches and conduct classes for men and women. Whereby some brothers instead of praying salat or quran etc. they
leave the musallah. Also these ladies are young, beautiful with sweet voice.
What is shar-ee explanation/ruling?

Khums on Pension

Submitted by Anonymous on Wed, 10/01/2014 - 21:34


Salamoon Aleykoom,

The company I work for offers a private pension scheme which is now by law compulsory in England for all employers to offer their employees. The participation is not manadatory but my company encourages and expects employees in my position to join.

A percentage of my salary is deducted from my salary. The scheme is very attractive as the company matches my contribution to the fund.
However I do not have access to the fund until I retire. I can elect to leave the scheme early but it means a huge financial penalty.
