Question:I wanted to know if it is permissible for someone to give Unbelievers gifs like nail polish. The nail polish may violate hijaab but the unbelievers don’t consider hijaab anyway and wear nail polish and attract non mahrams. So, is it okay to gift them something like this, and will we get any punishment because they use the nail paint for beautifying themselves?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No problem in gifting nail polish
Question:Unfortunately I’m on a process of divorce. I would like to know after the divorce is it a must to give my wife all the Gold sets, rings which was given to her as a gift during our wedding by my family members. I don’t mind if the shariah says I have to give her but I am just feeling very bad as my mum had to sell her jewelry so that she can gift my wife and unfortunately things didn’t work well between us and i don’t have that much money to buy again for my mum.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If you are initiating the divorce, then you must pay the mahr to your wife before the divorce if you have not already done so.

Other than that, there is no obligation on you, however, it is better to give more than just the mahr as the Quran states:

2:229
Divorce is twice. Then, either keep [her] in an acceptable manner or release [her] with good treatment. And it is not lawful for you to take anything of what you have given them unless both fear that they will not be able to keep [within] the limits of Allah . But if you fear that they will not keep [within] the limits of Allah, then there is no blame upon either of them concerning that by which she ransoms herself. These are the limits of Allah, so do not transgress them. And whoever transgresses the limits of Allah - it is those who are the wrongdoers.

Question:Is it permissible for one to “celebrate Christmas” as in decorating the house, having a christmas tree, getting each other gifts, and even visiting Churches with their Christian friends as a form of showing some respect for their friend’s religious beliefs?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There’s no harm in decorating the house or giving each other gifts. A Christmas tree could be problematic as it is the tree was imported from Paganism who used to worship the tree. Therefore should be avoided.

Visiting the churches is also allowed.
