Question:A dear friend recently approached me and asked regarding why the shia sect recites the shortened darood in the namaz and in general, and not the full ibrahim darood.

I've never really thought about this before, so approached you here.

Also a mini question:

what stones( for the ring) are recommended and which specific did the imams and the prophet(saw) wear? Also give details regarding which hand and fingers are more recommended to wear the rings on.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: All the sects recite durood on Muhammad and Aale Muhammad in namaz as ordered by the Hadith of the Prophet.

Aqeeq is the most recommended stone.

Other valuable stones recommended are ruby, emerald, firoza etc.

Question:Can you plz tell me what time does dhuhr and as prayer time expires and becomes a qadha prayer?
Like before maghreb or When?
I usually pray at school but sometimes I miss it so i get home around 4 or sometimes 5 and i pray dhuhr and as then? so is it okay or do i pray qadha?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Asr prayer time is until just before sunset and Zuhr prayer time ends slightly before that. As long as you say both before sunset then it is fine.
Question:I was just having a discussion with a brother who said that a spouse cheating on their spouse isn't haram? And that lying to your wife isn't haram too?

He also said that a husband would not need to take the permission of his first wife if he's thinking about marrying another woman as his second.

What are the rulings with these things?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Cheating and lying are sins, so they are both definitely haraam.

Whilst husband doesn’t not need permission of his first wife from a shari point of view, but if it is illegal to marry a second in any country then it is not allowed, and if in the law of the country one needs permission of the first wife, then it would be necessary.
Question:I am well respected as a believer in the community for the acts I do, but I have an inner self that is dragging me towards hell fire. I have stopped praying Salat for laziness or don’t know. I am married yet I masterbate and watch pornography. Is there any way to remove hypocrisy and tame my inner wild?
I would request to advise me with practical solutions.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Try to attend jamaat prayers in your local mosque in order to maintain your prayers

Regarding masturbation, try to spice up your married life so that you do not have to resort to it. Your wife can pleasure you with her hands if that is what you would desire.
