Question:“1618?. If a fasting person intentionally immerses his entire head in the water, his fast is known to be void, even if the rest of his body remains out of water. But this act does not invalidate the? fast; it is a Makrooh act, and as a measure of precaution, should be avoided.”

I’m not sure what Sayed Sistani means here. First he says it will be known to be void, but then it's described as only being Makrooh. Perhaps you can clarify the actual meaning?? And also finally answer the question on whether it’s allowed to swim while fasting.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: He means that it is famous among the Scholars this act voids the fast, but according to him, it does not.
However, it is better to avoid it.
Question:I really want to know why second marriage or 4 marriages are allowed to men when this can be and in most cases is distressing for the first wives (varied culturally)
Rasoolallah was allowed 9 and from what I know this was for tableegh purpose, but why are all men allowed??
Also, neither Rasoolallah nor Imam Ali married another woman during the life of Bibi Khadija and Bibi Fatima. Why is that? Was it only because of the love they shared with each other?
Then what was the need to have several wives at the same time, after Bibis' shahadat? Was the love shared then with any one wife was not enough?
God forbid and forgive me if anything here is disrespectful to any personality because of the way I've explained my question
my intention was never to be disrespectful

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Alaykum assalam
In fact, plural marriage is not allowed in Islam, except if the man is 100% sure that he is able to treat all the wives equally.
Otherwise it is forbidden.
First of all, let us agree that this order is from Allah SWT, not even from prophet peace be upon him and his family, and that Almighty is not questionable why he did so, and that he is wise, and knows what are the pros and cons of everything.
On the other hand, we might try to work out some benefits of the plural marriage, but we can not say that these are the real reasons for allowing it.
One of these reasons could be, the difference in female population compared to male population, which is very clear, and could be very easily touched. Hence, having one wife for each man will result in big number of single women, which is very dangerous situation, while if each man got married to at least two women, the number of single women will decrease dramatically.
We need to accept what Allah says.
If we did so, then there will not be any bad feelings, mainly if the first wife admitted that her husband loves her.
In fact, should encourage him to have another wife, in order to solve a social problem.

Question:I have query regarding how many mediums najasat transfers. What is the critera for counting the najasat mediums, whether every medium of najasat should be dried and new wetness should come or not.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Only two.
The third do not transfer najasat, although it self is najis.
The criteria is that if one of the bodies is wet, then najasat transfers from it or to it.
Question:I'm suffering very badly from taharat najasat waswas and my life has become hell. I'm unable to use english toilets, unable to take bath as I feel water falling from my body on walls of washroom is najis. I'm not using any wet items made in india as I feel for sure it is touched by kafirs. I won't wear leather products purchased from UAE which is written made in china or made in italy or made in brazil or made in portugal.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: A- With regard to the toilet:
1- If you did not see any najasat on it, you can treat it as tahir.
2- If you are confident that it is najis, as long it is dry, and your body is dry, no need to worry, because najasa transfers through wet bodies only.
B- With regard to the bath:
What you are doing is meaningless. The water is tahir. Do not let Satan make your life miserable.
C- With regard to the wet items, and leather products from non Muslim countries, we also do not use them.
