Question:Is Ruqya a Shia practice? And do we believe that Jinns can possess the bodies of human beings? Or are those who claim to do this con-artists?

Ayatollah:Taqi Modarresi

Answer: Ws it is an ancient religious practice that was used by idol worshipers and others.
After Islam the people replaced the idols by Allah and His attributes and the verses of the holy quran in the Zikr of Ruqyha. The masoomin aa did not condemn such practice on the contrary according to some narrations they taught the people how to do such properly.
Question:I have noticed a sort of reoccuring theme in the Quran regarding Allah SWT referring to things being in pairs. I was wondering if you could explain to me the significance of this?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Holy Quran 51:49
------------------
وَمِن كُلِّ شَيْءٍ خَلَقْنَا زَوْجَيْنِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَذَكَّرُونَ

And of all things We created two mates; perhaps you will remember.

So this verse indicates literally that source of every thing are pairs or from every thing a pair is produced , or every thing is in pairs.
From the atomic level we see the protons and electrons. To the galaxies which has ions If positive and negative charges.
Even in our morality there are positive attitudes and negative attitudes and so one, there is a lot one can ponder...
There are things in pair we have not yet discovered up till now
Holy Quran 36:36
------------------
سُبْحَانَ الَّذِي خَلَقَ الْأَزْوَاجَ كُلَّهَا مِمَّا تُنبِتُ الْأَرْضُ وَمِنْ أَنفُسِهِمْ وَمِمَّا لَا يَعْلَمُونَ

Exalted is He who created all pairs - from what the earth grows and from themselves and from that which they do not know.
Question:If a married man had relation with married woman who hasnt been physical with her husband for almost 5years . After divorce can the person marry her? A sin was committed and both are very repenting to that but in the heat of time it just happened but now they want to be toghether legally. Any advice on this please !

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: الجواب: ١ـ حرمة المزني بها ذات البعل علي الزاني حرمة مؤبدة تبتني عندنا علي الاحتياط، فان تم الرجوع في هذه المسالة الي فقيه آخر ـ مع رعاية الاعلم فالاعلم ـ وافتي بالحرمة فلابد من الانفصال من دون حاجة الي الطلاق وان افتي بعدم الحرمة يبني علي صحة العقد، وان لم يتم الرجوع الي الغير فلابدّ من رعاية الاحتياط بالانفصال مع الطلاق.
S sistani dz says
If someone commits unlawful intercourse with a married woman then it is not permissible for him to get married to her after her divorce from the first husband based on a precautionary measure, that means if some one next in level to the level of knowledge of s sistani dz permits such marriage then they can refer to him in this issue, and if no one permits such then they both should be separated immediately through a precautionary divorce.

Question:I have a question regarding behavior towards our parents. I realize kind behavior towards one’s parents is obligatory. However, what should one do if one has a father who abuses his/her mother verbally and verges on physical abuse? Ofcourse, neither party is infallible, but the husband keeps criticizing his wife for every minute thing. Like criticizing her while eating and the food she cooks, using foul language, demeaning her all day. If the children try to intervene, the husband gets angry and says he can do whatever he wishes with his wife. What is the responsibility of their children in this case?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: The children can defend their mother without being rude to their father.
They need to continuously remind the father about the good days. And then observe patience, however if it comes to physical harm the kids need to call the authorities and seek protection for their mother.
Duas

Question:I have a question regarding the limits of obedience to parents. my friend's father has been emotionally torturing her and physically and emotionally torturing her mother for 32 years and i have been witness to the emotional trauma their whole family went through due to the father. now she has had enough and she stood upto her father. her father has stopped talking to her for the mere reason that she wanted to study further and this time she has made little efforts to apologize. someone told her that all her prayers will not be accepted by Allah SWT as her father is angry with her. she is otherwise a good and religious person but since she heard that her prayers are not being accepted, she does not pray that much as she believes her prayers won't be accepted. but after a lifetime of mental torture she is not ready to speak to her father again. my question is what are the limits to fathers' obedience? we must never be rude to them but they have a right to ruin their children's lives? is it true that even if a father who is unjust and forcing children to do his bidding just out of spite, if he is angry the prayers of children are not accepted?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There is no obedience for a creature in the disobedience of the creator.
Other than that the obligation is to be kind is to be kind to the parents regardless of the reasons.

Question:I wear an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitoring sensor on my body. The pump needs to be changed every 3 days and the sensor every 6 -7 days. Can I keep both on during the wajib ghusl or do I need t take them off? It is quite cumbersome to replace the sensor because I have to recharge it, then insert it and then calibrate it which is something i have to do every 6-7 days but if I need to take it off before that then I will have to do these steps and throw away the sensor and put on new one. The Medical supply company sends me exact amount based in 90 days supply so if i change the sensor before the 6-7 day time range, I will run out of it before the 90 days.
However, the insulin pump which gets replaced every 3 days can be changed more easily.
Please advise me what to do for wajib ghusl.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes u need to remove it for the Ghusl and wodhu when ever u are able to without any difficulty and hardship.
However when ever it becomes cumbersome and causes hardship then you can perform tayamum instead of Ghusl and instead of wodhu.
Question:My son fell in so called love with a hindu girl in his class. I asked him but he always lied to me that he is not having any relationship. While leaving for hostel I found love letters and cards from his bag and I told him that this is haraam relationship and will not be accepted by us at all. I secretly removed the letter and cards from my son. When he came to know about it since then he is not talking to me and doesn't want to keep any relation with me. He is a typical boy who doesn't want to follow any religion and he also doesn't like us (his parents) for we ask him to offer namaaz and religion. I am very troubled how to get him on the right path. I am too worried as since last month he hasn't talk to me .

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Leave him in the hand of Allah swt and ask Him to guide him and bring him to you.
That has worked with many mothers, for Allah swt can what we cannot not.
Do not push on him any thing just keep good respect and kindness. If he has chosen something else we cannot do much.
Pray pray and pray until u get him back from Allah swt do not give up.
