Question:one day while passing urine, the urine got mixed with sticky premature ejaculated fluid. Now to make urine pak, i washed it but the wash was not good enough to remove the stickiness. So, just because the stickiness was not washed away which was mixed with urine, it is najis and transfers najasat? The urine was made paak correctly. If the answer is that its najis and transfers najast then, That day when was in that situation I had touched many things with the wet hands which may also have become najis. How to know the things which i made najis?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Issue 126: * If a Clean (tahir/pak) thing touches a najis thing and if either or both of them are so wet that the wetness of one reaches the other, the Clean (tahir/pak) thing will become najis. Similarly, if the wetness of the thing which has become najis, touches a third thing, that t hird thing will also become najis. It is commonly held by the scholars, that a thing which has become najis transmits its najasat, but indefinite number of transmissions is improbable. In fact, after certain stage it is Clean (tahir/pak). For example, if the right hand of a person becomes najis with urine, and then, while still wet, it touches his left hand, the left hand will also become najis. Now, if the left hand after having dried up, touches a wet cloth, that cloth will also become najis, but, if that cloth touc hes another wet thing, it cannot be said to be najis. In any case, if the wetness is so little, that it does not affect the other thing, then the Clean (tahir/pak) thing will not become najis, even if it had contacted the Najisul Ayn.
Question:Can I start a Namaz in a room where there is non mehram person? does the namaz become invalid if i pray in the room while non mahram is there? Please give me reference also as that will be more helpful when i tell the answer to others..thanks alot.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes you can offer your namaz where there are non mahram but you should not recite loudly and the strongest proof in this concern is Hajj season and Holy Shrine of our Aimmah (a.s) where woman offer their prayer while there are thousands of non mahram are present.

Question:Religion is of no use. Religion has attempted to tell us two things,
1- How was the world created.
2- How to live in this world(morality).
For the first query, I take the help of Science
For the second morality question, I take the assistance of Philosophy and Social science?

Ayatollah:N/a

Answer: How was the world created?
First of all science we don’t see any contradiction between science and religion as long as any issue has been proved by scientific research because we know many scientific researches are still in the process of theories and have not yet been proven. But what Religion (specially Quran) has said about the universe is pointing out towards a reality now it that reality has not yet approved by scientists due to the lack of knowledge ( none can accept that all mysteries of the universe has been solved) then how we can say we can get all answers from the scientific researches.
2- How to live in this world (morality)
I would like to ask one question if this Morality is found in social science or in philosophy then why don’t we have it in all creations while animals they don’t have it in what manners we Human being have. What does it mean? When all organisms are having same atmosphere and same fashion of their creation then how comes Humans are distinct from other animals?? It means what Humans have is not only been taken from this very nature but some other power has given them. Our intellect is not the creation of our practices which we do in our daily life but it has already been settled according to our need by our creator. So for Morality also we need Religion too.
Question:what is gunah e kabira

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: What do we call Gunah Kabira (greater sins) is different from daily routine mistakes and Gunah. It caused severe affect in ones life and has severe punishment on the Day of Judgement. Allah say in Sura Nisa verse 31:
إِن تَجْتَنِبُوا كَبَائِرَ مَا تُنْهَوْنَ عَنْهُ نُكَفِّرْ عَنكُمْ سَيِّئَاتِكُمْ وَنُدْخِلْكُم مُّدْخَلًا كَرِيمًا

If you shun the great sins which you are forbidden, We will do away with your small sins and cause you to enter an honorable place of entering.(4:31)
But we should not consider any Gunah as it is small because it’s long term effect is that a person who considers any Gunah small becomes habitual of doing them. Whilst Gunah e Kabira is its a very serious and dangerous action according to Islam.
Question:I would like to know the rulings regarding to hairs of men. Are they supposed to be shaven, grown or kept trimmed??

Is clean shaving one’s head considered as Wahabism?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There is no harm in cutting or shaving one’s hairs.
Etiquette and advantages of shaving one's head:
Imam Ja'far-e-Sadiq (a.s.) said that one should shave off the hair from one's head from the roots that the head may be clean and free of lice. Besides, it strengthens one's neck and gives more light to the eyes and the body relaxes and also said that he shaved his head every Friday.

According to a tradition from Hazrat Moosa Kazim (a.s.), when the hair on the head get long, the eyes get weak and eyesight gets dim and when the hair are cut, the brightness of the eyes is increased. (This applies to men).

It is haram (not permissible) for women to cut their hair without any reason.

Another reliable tradition states that a person who will not part his hair when he has kept them long, his head will be opened on the day of judgement by God with a cutter of fire.

A tradition states that the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) has prohibited a woman who has physically matured to gather her hair in front or at the sides and knot them and hang them in front like men.

Two other traditions state that there is no harm in making an addition (something to tie a plait) from the hair of one's own hair or that of an animal but the hair of other women should not be mixed with one's own. One should be careful to take off the addition of animal's hair from one's hair before starting one's prayers, as namaz is not allowed with it. But if it is of the hair of permissible animals, then its usage even during prayers is not prohibited.
