Question:If someone had sexual thoughts, than liquid discharged from his body but he's unsure if it's semen, does he need to do ghusl?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Salamunalaikum

When one cannot ascertain whether the fluid emitted from one's body is semen, urine or something else, it will be treated as semen if it is thrown out with lust and if the body is slackened. If all or some of these signs are not present the fluid will not be treated as semen. In the case of illness, the fluid may not come out with sudden swiftness and the body may not slacken; but if the emission takes place with lust, it will be treated as semen.

Question:Salam. Can one pray while there is cat saliva on there body?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam

If the saliva, or water from the nose, or any other moisture, from an animal whose meat is haraam to eat, like that of a cat, is on the body or the dress of a person in namaz, and if it is wet, the namaz will be void. But if it has dried up, and if its substance has been removed, then the prayer is valid.

Question:Salaam sheikh , I have sweared by taking Ahlulbayt names and also on my son for not eating food cooked by my wife for a month, now things are normal so how do I take back my swearing :( ?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam
It is not valid it was sweared while you were angry . You can eat for your knowledge read the following ruling of Aagha e Sistani

2680. The conditions for validity of an oath are:
A person who takes an oath should be Baligh and sane, and should do so with free will and clear intention. Hence, an oath by a minor, an insane person, an intoxicated person, or by a person who has been coerced to take an oath, will not be in order. Similarly, if he takes an oath involuntarily, or unintentionally, in a state of excitement, the oath will be void. An oath taken for the performance of an act which is haraam or makrooh, is not valid. Similarly, an oath for renouncing an act which is obligatory or Mustahab is also void. And if he takes an oath to perform a normal or usual act, it will be valid, if that act has any preference in the estimation of sensible people. Similarly, if he takes an oath for renouncing a usually permissible act, it will be valid if it is deemed more preferable than its performance, by the sensible people. In fact, in each case, his own judgement about the preferences will be enough to grant validity to the oath, even if other sensible people may not concur. The oath must be sworn by one of those names of the Almighty Allah which are exclusively used for Him, (e.g. 'Allah'). And even if he swears by a name which is used for other beings also, but is used so extensively for Him, that when any person utters that name one is reminded of Him Alone, for example, if he swears by the name Khaliq (the Creator) and Raziq (the Bestower), the oath will be in order. In fact, if he uses other names or attributes of Allah, which do not remind of Him, but give that connotation when used during an oath, like Samee' (All Hearing) or Baseer (All Seeing), even then the oath will be valid. The oath should be uttered in words, but a dumb person can take an oath by making a sign. Similarly, if a person is unable to utter the words, he may write down the oath, repeating in his mind the intention for it, that will be a valid oath, though as a precaution, he may confirm the oath in other ways as well. It should be possible for him to act upon his oath. And if he was able to act upon the oath when he took it, but became incapable of acting upon it later, the oath becomes nullified from the time he became incapable of acting upon it, provided that he did not incapacitate himself purposely. And the same rule applies if acting upon one's vow, oath, or covenant, involves unbearable hardship.

Question:AsSalaam Alaikum,
Is it ok to complain /show frustation with ones spouse in terms of issues in married life.
What if wife out of frustation screams at her husband.
Is there a way to ask for forgiveness to Allah s.w.t and also to husband. Due to her complains, husband feels very bad and she is blamed to make him cry. How can she undo words she already said.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam
It is not permitted for any of them, they have to respect each other .
If it happened in the past ask for forgiveness inshallah Allah will forgive you and do not repeat in future.
The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'If a man has a wife who mistreats him, Allah does not accept her daily prayer, nor any other good deed she performs, even if she was to fast all her life, until and unless she relieves him and pleases him…and the husband will bear the same burden and punishment if he mistreats or oppresses his wife.’

Question:As SalaamAlaikum
I have a question on khums distribution.
1)--For example if i have $100 to distribute, 25% goes to my family syeds, 25% goes to non family syeds and 50% goes to Sahem e Imam that is to an organization, marja or Moulana
Is this correct.
2)--- if i had taken out khums last year on my savings and have left some money in that account. This year nothing has been added to that account, do i still take out khums from that balance in account.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Walaikumussalam
Khums is 20% of the saving and half goes to your marja or his representative or Masjid or centre who has the permission from marja to collect the khums . It will not go to every maulana only who has permission to collect.
Half goes to poor and practicing Syeds. If anybody from your relatives you give preference to them it is totally up to you how much of the share you are giving all based on amount and need.
2- if nothing added then khums will not applied .
