Question:Often times in many situations such as job or school applications, making a purchase, filling out a survey or form, etc. we are required to check a box confirming that "I agree to the terms and service" or "I agree to the terms" etc.

In these situations many people don't actually read the terms and just check the box, and from my understanding that is expected. This may sound a little ridiculous, but I was wondering if not reading the terms and checking the box anyway would be considered lying in Islam and therefore haraam?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: It is an agreement which supposed to be read and understand before you sign.
Question:I understand that in our faith, pursuit of knowledge is mandatory upon every believing man and woman. I was wondering if this refers only to Islamic knowledge or all knowledge?

Question:At work my boss gave me a space to pray alhumdulillah, but the problem is that there is music playing everywhere in the building and I cannot go home to pray or a masjid since it is too far. Is it ok for me to still pray with the music playing?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Try to find place where there is not any destruction. If this is the only option then speak to your boss that thanks for providing place for prayer can you help me by stopping (switching off) the music for 10 minutes so I can pray in destruction free environment. If they will not listen then focus in your prayer do not pay attention to music.
