Question:salam
can you please teach me Ghusal e janabah ?
and on another note if a muslim musturbates or watches haram , Do they exit Islam or get sins?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam
In this method, a person should first make a niyyat for Ghusl. Thereafter one should first wash one's head and neck, and thereafter the remaining parts of one's body. It is better that one washes the right part of the body first and then the left part. And if a person, while standing under the water, jerks each of these parts on one's body with an intention of performing Tartibi Ghusl, it will not be sufficient and the precaution is that one should not content oneself with it. And if a person washes the body before washing the head, either intentionally, or on account of forgetfulness or because of not knowing the rule, Ghusl is void.
Musturbates is haram watching is also Haram it is a gunah e Kabira
But it will not causes to exit Islam

Question:Asalam o alikum!

ramadan is about a week away and i got a question. sorry i should know this but at the beginning of Ramadan how is niyyah read out for starting to fast. I know niyaah is the intention but how is it worded out?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam
Niyat is intention only you don’t need to say. As it is mentioned in tauzeeh

1559. It is not necessary for a person to pass the niyyat for fasting through his mind or to say that he would be fasting on the following day. In fact, it is sufficient for him to decide that in obedience to the command of Allah he will not perform from the time of Adhan for Fajr prayers up to Maghrib, any act which may invalidate the fast. And in order to ensure that he has been fasting throughout this time he should begin abstaining earlier than the Adhan for Fajr prayers, and continue to refrain for some time after sunset from acts which invalidate a fast.
