Question:I made an appointment with a coach to train at the gym, then my mom asks me to accompany her to a family gathering at about the same time. Am I to refuse and keep my word with the coach, or request the coach to change the gym class to another time?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You should try and change the time of the gym class as obeying your mother in all cases (except for haraam) is obligatory.
Question:Is this permissible? Eg buying beef that is not slaughtered according to the sharia. If it is permissible, does it matter whether I am paying or just buying on behalf of another person?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It is permissible but you have to tell the Muslims that it is not halal
Question:I would like to know whether or not a woman has an iddah after an ended temporary marriage? If there is an iddah, does the iddah count if she would like to enter temporary marriage with the same man again?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There is iddah if there was consummation of the marriage but if it is with the same person, no problem and no iddah.
Question:If a man recites "seeghay" for divorce can the divorce be reversed?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: The man cannot recite the seeghay for divorce without the consultation with the mujtahid or mujtahid’s representative. Therefore there is no divorce unless the proper procedure is followed.
Question:I read some where that dajjal will rise from the khurusan, from the jews of isfahan? Is this true??

And if that's the case, then won't Imam Mahdi (A.S) be rising from the khurasan too?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: I haven’t read any such thing in the riwayat

Imam Mahdi (AJF) will rise from Mecca. You can refer to volume 52 of Bihar for details.
Question:I want to ask that can I enter into a nikah e mutaa with someone. We both bear a good character and haven't indulged in any forbidden act. We've talked to our parents too but they are hesitant owing to the societal pressure. We're trying to convince them in which we'll succeed soon inshaAllah. But, until then we wish to keep our relationship halal. So can we enter into a Muttaa now?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Muta can only be carried out with father’s consent if the woman has not been married before.
Question:There is a app available now called "instacart" where you can work as someone who buys people groceries. Now there are many things in the store which are not halal for a muslim to eat but is delivering it an issue? My main concern would be pork. Is this job halal for a muslim and which things should he watch out for?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: With regards to alcohol it would not be allowed. If you are delivering non halal food to people who normally eat it, then it is not a problem.
Question:There’s a girl that keeps talking to my fiancé, although he has never talked to her, and she’s falling in love with him and threatening to hurt herself if he blocks her, but she is causing problems between us, and she is sinning through talking to him (since she is talking about forbidden things), and he wants to block her but he’s afraid she will harm herself, so if he does block her will be held accountable for any harm she does for herself? Although he didn’t lead her on or anything?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No he is not accountable it sounds like she is blackmailing him into haraam and he has to save himself from that.
