Question:It is permissible in islam to listen music where All the sounds made only by human voice and hands (No instruments were used)?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Forbidden music is the music that is suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings, even if it does not arouse sexual temptations.
Permissible music is the music that is not suitable for such gatherings, even if it does not soothe the nerves like the martial music and that played at funerals.
Question:They say that every person is liable for their good and bad deeds on the day of resurrection. So when a person will be punished on that day then what punishment does he gets in barzakh? What happens to him in barzakh?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Barzakh means barrier between this world and the next world.

For those who have answered the questions in the grave correctly, they would go to a state of bliss if they have done righteous deeds and go for a mini punishment if they did evil deeds.

This is due to the fact that Allah wants the believer to be honoured on the day of judgement and not punished.
Question:My question is regarding feet hijab. Why is it Wajib to cover our feet and not hands as a part of hijab? What are the rulings on it ?

Question:I would like to know that sometimes when we get home late after work we don’t get time for namaz at work and we have to read it when we come back home. Now since it’s winters in USA and Maghrib is around 5:20. Is it okay to do zuhur and asr salaat as soon as we get home before maghrib? Also, since it’s almost maghrib time can we pray maghrib in the same wudhu or do we have to do wuzu again for maghrib??

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: First of all it is not allowed to make the namaz qadha.. You must get a place to pray during the time.

However if the time of Maghrib has come then you must pray Maghrib first and then pray any namaz that has become qadha.

You can pray all the namaz with one wudhu as long as it is valid.
Question:I've noticed that in their prayer, some people after reading tasbeeh and du'a, they do a sajdah where they turn their heads aswell. Can you please explain to me what is said and exactly how is it done.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Sajdah Shukr
There’s no particular way of doing it other than going in sajdah and saying Shukran lillah 10 times or 100 times.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If you trust them in what they are saying is correct then you can eat from there
