Question:When i dream about ahl al bayt, are they real? So are they visiting me? Or is it just a dream?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: We can’t deny the reality of this fact that there are many people they see Aimmah (a.s) in Mukashefa it depends on the purity and devotion towards Alhlul Bayt (a.s ) when they are asked by any of their followers with complete Ikhlas and sincerity they come and guide and help their followers.
Question:I usually perform ghusl after taking a shower, meaning all my body and head is wet before the ghusl. While performing ghusl I can't be 100% sure if the part I'm washing got wet with the water of ghusl or because it was wet before. What should I do in this case if i can't be completely sure whether any part of my body or head remained unwashed during ghusl?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There is no harm making wet your body before having the Niyyat of Ghusl. Normally when you wash head and Neck and then right side of the body and then left side. Your Ghusl is in order no need to having doubts unnecessarily.
Question:If we do dua for something and it keeps getting delayed whereas all your other duas get accepted, so does that mean we should keep asking Allah dua that is not being accepted or leave it?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: The actual meaning of Dua is to call. Dua is an act by which we get close to Allah (swt) we should always keep in our mind that we are nothing and the one who has all power is Allah therefore we are always in need to Him now our duty is to call our Lord but we can’t calculate which one of our Duas are accepted and which one has not accepted just like a child Who totally rely on his/her parents without any doubt and asks what he/she wants but it is his/her parents has to decide what is better and suitable for their child and what is not good and yet it is not a appropriate time to make his/her wishes true. So we should always remember our Lord by our Duas and this will make a strong bond between Creation and Creator.
Question:تقریبا 14 سال پہلے ایک NGO نے ایک گائوں میں یتیموں کے لئے مجھے کچھ پیسے دیئے. ان میں سے 3 یا 4 یتیم اپنے گھر نہیں تھے اور ان کے پیسے میں نے استعمال کر لئے. اور NGO سے کہا کے سب بچوں میں پیسے تقسیم کر دیئے ہیں. وہ رقم مجھے یاد ہے 5000 روپے تھی. مگر اس NGO کا ابھی معلوم نہیں کہ کہاں ہے؟ کوئ رابطہ نمبر بھی معلوم نہیں. میں وہ رقم اب لوٹانا چاہتا ہوں. تاکہ قبر میں اس رقم کی وجہ سے مشکل میں نہ پھنس جائوں. مجھے کیا کرنا چاہئے؟ کسی مدرسے میں وہ رقم دے سکتا ہوں؟

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: اگر مذکورا رقم کسی خاص شخص یتیم کے لیۓ نہیں تھی تو آپ اس رقم کو کسی دوسرے یتیم پر خرج کر سکتے ہیں ورنہ قید کی صورت میں اسی یتیم تک یہ رقم پہنچانہ آپکی شرعی ذمہ داری ہے۔ اگر چہ آپکو موجودہ صورت حال میں NGO کے بارے میں کوئی خبر نہیں ہے۔
Question:
آغا صاحب، کیا قوالی سننا جائز ہے یا حرام ہے۔ مثلا ایسی قوالیاں جن میں لغو شاعری نہ ہو جیسے کہ نصرت فتح علی خان یا صابری برادرز کی قوالیاں۔

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Songs (al-ghinã’) are harãm absolutely. However, singing praise [of the Prophet or the Ahlul Bayt] that is sung with a good tune but is not in ghinã’ form is without problem.
As for the music, it would be allowed, if it is not suitable for entertainment and amusement gatherings.

Question:I would like to know if we can eat the food prepared or touched by Christians or Jews (whether they drink alcohol and eat pork or not)
And under what situations can we consume their food? and after consuming, how can we purify ourselves?
is it true that our hajat are not accepted for 40 days after consuming such food?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: The Ahlul Kitab (that is, the Jews, the Christians and the Zoroastrians) are ritually pure (tahir) as long as you do not know that they have become ritually impure (najis) by coming into contact with an impure object. You can follow this ruling when dealing with them.
As long as it is not known that the hands of the cook were najis, the food is to be considered tahir.
A Muslim is allowed to eat the food prepared by a non-Muslim who is not from Ahlul Kitãb [for example, a Hindu or a Buddhist], provided that he does not know or is not sure that the non-Muslim touched the food with wetness; and provided that he does not know or is not sure that the food consists of what is forbidden to him like intoxicating drinks. As for meat, fat and their extracts, the food cooked by non-Muslims should not contain any of these. If the food contains meat and animal fat, he should be sure that they are halal .
Question:salam i have the following questions to recite this ziyarat for 40 days to help get rid of a problem.1)is the sajda at end of ziyarat obligatory?or can we recite that part without sajda.
2)what happens if i read the ziyarat for 40 days ,but then a girl gets her periods.Should she recite in her menses or wait till its over to recite. because i want to do the 40 day amaal.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes you can recite without doing sajda. And a woman can recite this ziyarat in her menses also.
One thing I wish to add that the part we recite during Sajdah that is the greatest part of this ziyarat that requires we put our forehead on the ground and say:
O’my Allah! (All) praise is for You (alone); praise of the "Ever-thankful to You", who glorify You whatever come to pass. (All) praise is for Allah for my deep-felt intense grief. O my Allah make available for me the recommendations of Husayn on the day I present myself before You, let me stand firm in safety before You on account of my sincere attachment with Husayn, along with him and his comrades, who sacrificed everything they had (heart, mind, soul and life) for Husayn, peace be on him.
Question:What happens if i accidently forget to recite ziyarat e ashura one day or for a couple of days. does this mean i have to start all over again or just keep on reciting till i reach the 40 th day.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Actually the number 40 itself has its importance so we should complete this number without any gap as in any amal continue and presence of mind is a major factor it shows how much the one who’s doing that is devoted to it. So if possible you continue once you have started it till end.
