Question:Please advise me that we can't take bath on Ashura ? I have heard this from somebody.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It’s not true,we can take bath on the Day of Aashura but if it’s not compulsory a person to have bath (I mean like wajib Ghusl ) then it’s better to avoid it even we should refrain to apply oil in our hair and comb it. In short we should avoid any kind of adornment on the day of Aashura. But make sure these all are not Haram.

Question:Sajda(prostration) is only for Allah Subhanahu ta’la! No doubt. But we do sajda on rauzae Mubarak of Aimmae masumeen a.s it doesn't mean that we assume them god it's an bowing down for respect. Is it wrong?is it shirk?
Please explain in detail about this!

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes no doubt that Sajdah (prostration) should be only for Allah (swt) none other than Him. But when we go to the Holy shrine of Aimmah (a.s) we do sajdah in front of their Zareeh or at the entrance with this Niyyat that O’ Allah thanks for giving us this opportunity to visit and show our tributes to our holy Imams if this is the Intention then there is no harm in doing such type of Sajdah. But if any one for God forsake does Sajdah to any of Imam’s Zareeh for Imam then this is totally invalid and Shirk.
Hence if doing sajdah at the shrine of Imam even with the intention of that, this is my Sajdah to Allah only causes any misconceptions or misunderstanding amongst the other sects of Islam that we Shia do sajdah of our Imams then it’s better to avoid doing so.
Question:People say we shia do shirk! coz we give the attributes of Allah swt to Ahlulbayt a.s like they come on every farshe Aza so they are Omni present and like they listen our prayers and they see us so they r all seeing and hearing...
Please explain in detail

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: They don’t know the definition of “shirk”, but the fact is different they don’t know the lofty position of Ahlulbayt (a.s) near Allah (swt).
Shirk means if anyone believes any Authority other than Allah (swt) parallel to Him otherwise we believe that Allah is the Supreme Authority and all power belongs to him and He could give power and authority to whom He wishes is not a shirk. And Alhlul bait (a.s) have many more power than anyone can imagine. Their power and authority is beyond our thought.
Question:What is namaz e shab as asked by Imam Hussain a.s. to Bibi Zainab s.a. of evening of Ashura - where Imam said to remember him

Ayatollah:N/a

Answer: Salatul Layl is call as namaz e shab also is one of the highly recommended Mustahab prayer it was wajib for Prophet but for rest of his ummah it is mustahab and in that prayer at last one that we call salatul Witr it has recommended we ask Dua or Maghferat or forgiveness for 40 people that is why Imam Husain (a.s) asked Bibi Zainab that don’t forget me in your dua during Salatul Layl.

The time for praying Salatul-Layl is from midnight (midnight is reckoned as the time which is exactly half the time between sunset and the actual dawn) to the time of Adhan for Fajr prayers. However, it can be prayed at anytime after Isha prayers but it is better to pray during the last part of the night near to the time of Fajr prayers. If it is not possible to pray after midnight or before Fajr, then it can be recited in the morning or any part of the day with the niyyah (intention) of Qadha. It is better to recite with the niyyah of Qadha during the day time than to pray in the early part of the night. Salatul-Layl is made up of Eleven Rak’ats.
Question:Is it true that crying for matters which relate to this world (loss of job etc.) is makrooh? Therefore should a man hold back his tears if he for example feels like crying in front of his wife? Because I've heard from some people that we should only cry in front of Allah?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Only in Namaz we should not cry for worldly things but other than that there is no such restriction. Yes it depends how valuable thing a person has lost for example if someone has lost his mobile phone and crying in front of people then it’s not worth but imagine if a person has lost his entire property now naturally he will cry. But, it’s better we should not cry for worldly things because may be its an exam and test from Allah (swt) then we should be patient and agree to the Will of Allah (swt) because we don’t know what mysteries are hidden behind that incident.
Question:ہمارے علما و کے بیچ اتنی نااتفاقی کیوں ہے ؟

Ayatollah:Makarem Shirazi

Answer: اسکا سبسے اہم سبس دنیا پرستی اور بصیرت کی کمی ہے۔ اگر اللہ تعالی کہ علاوہ کسی اور کی خشنودی حاصل کی جائیگی تو اسکا نتیجہ آپسی اختلاف کی ہی شکل میں سامنے آئیگا۔
