Question:Q.1) We know that God has power over all things including satan. Then why does He not destroy satan? Wouldnt our lives be more happy if there was no satan in the first place?

Q.2) In Karbala where Imam Hussain was oppressed, he was tortured badly. But why he didnt use his powers and kept calm as compared to other people?

thanks

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam
1) when He asked for sajda he has not used His power as you know it comes in Quran la ikraha Fiddeen
There is no compulsion in Islam
He has given us free will and differentiated good and bad.
He never used power either against namrood and firaun and others .
This is our test and test of all human being to choose good with our own will.
2-
Not only Imam Husain as but in past other prophet has not used their powers but submitted themselves and completed their test successfully
And We will most certainly try you with somewhat of fear and hunger and loss of property and lives and fruits; and give good news to the patient,
Sura baqarah ayah 155
And when his Lord tried Ibrahim with certain words, he fulfilled them. He said: Surely I will make you an Imam of men. Ibrahim said: And of my offspring? My covenant does not include the unjust, said He.
Baqarah ayah 124

Question:Salam
one day i went to a place which was more than 40 km far away from my house. I recited the namaz qasar as per the rule.. Now while returning home I reached under the radius of 40km from my home, while the namaz time was left( meaning it had not become qaza yet). So, do i need to pray namaz again because I reached under 40km before that namaz has become qaza? Thanks

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam
If the distance you traveled from the boundary of your city one way 22 km
Or more than22 km
Then namaz is Qasr. Remember journey will not start from home it will start from boundary of the city or town.
In above masala you don't need to repeat your Namaz is valid and in order

Question:Below is a law from Islamic law of Ayatollah Sistani. As per the law, if i pray namaz while cat hair is on my dress or body , my namaz will become void?

But if it has dried up, and if its substance has been removed, then the prayer is valid.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Yes if you read last sentence then you will understand it is clearly mentioned that :
But if it has dried up, and if its substance has been removed, then the prayer is valid.

Question:Salam.
1) My first question is about Fidya:-
Assume that I am liable to pay fidya for certain fasting days of Mahe Ramzan. I know that as per the law, for 1fast I am supposed to give 3/4 kg of wheat in the form of fidya. My question is that is wheat the only thing that can be given as fidya or I can give other things aslo such as milk, rice, salt, and other such things which may be useful to the receiver also? Please guide me answer & more knowledge if i missed any point. Thank you very much.

2)My second question is also about fidya:-
I am liable to play fidya for the fasts of Mahe Ramzan of the last 15years. So now when I decide to pay the fidya, how do i calculate the fidya? I mean, If the fidya is not given in the year in which I am liable to pay, then is it that more fidya or penalty gets added because i delay it to more than one year? I mean, am i liable to pay the fidya (in the same value for the fasts which were left 15 or 14 years back ) .What are the rulings? Thanks you very much.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam
1) As per the ruling either pay wheat or flour 3/4 kg for everyday
2) There is not any extra amount of fidya will apply it will be same as you mentioned you are liable for 15 years then you pay for the total period.
