Question:This is a frequently referred to surah in An-nisa:
“.....the male, what is equal to the share of two females. But if there are [only] daughters, two or more, for them is two thirds of one's estate. And if there is only one, for her is half”

If allah is completely just, why does a female get less inherience

Ayatollah:N/a

Answer: According to Islamic Shariya girl inherits from her father property and boys too. When this girl marries and becomes a wife then in case of her husband’s death she inherits from her Husband too but what about a boy who can inherit from his father but the property his wife has from her father in that he has no share unless his wife gives him from her own wish.
Now please refer this verdict no 2740 and 2742 from the Islamic laws of Ayatullah Sistani.
So it’s not unfair if you calculate properly the shares of a girls.But because the society where do we live normally girls are ignored from their share but it is not an Islamic Shariya.
Question:The one thing i dont get is in Islam circumsission HAS to happen, so does that mean allah made a male penis imperfect’

Ayatollah:N/a

Answer: Regarding this question I would like to tell you that the Human body in comparison to many animals seems very weak for example Dogs have 6 times more smelling power than any Human. It doesn’t mean that Humans are created incomplete. So many things we need according to our lifestyle or nature if humans get same smelling power what dogs have it would be very difficult to live because same time God has given us intellect also so we can’t bear some bad smell in our surroundings. Now if a human circumcision their additional skin in order to keep themselves more clean and free from many bacterial infections then it doesn’t mean that this is the only way and if they don’t do that then they will not live in comfort. Like if we don’t cut our nails and don’t be careful about them then make sure it will automatically broken but not in a way how nicely and properly we cut it. Then it will create a problem in our daily life. If you see Islamic Shariya you will find circumcision is only wajib for those when they do Hajj while rest it is not written that doing circumcision is wajib like offering Salah. That is why you don’t find that it is must for those who accepts Islam in their adult age they must do circumcision also.
Rest Allah knows better.
Question:If one fears that they may sin by looking at pornography what precautions can they take to prevent it especially in situations when they are alone or when they are going to sleep?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: It’s true that loneliness is the best possible time for Shiatan to misguide ourselves. The best way to refrain from any sin we shouldn’t create or go in way where there is any possibility to be trapped by Shaitan.Also as much possible do not open any link or site which might have an offensive and vulgar scene or photo.
Do not go to sleep just after having your dinner I mean full stomach and before sleeping empty your bladder. Do not go to your bed unless you fall asleep. Avoid to be alone at your home. If your family members are going out and they aren’t call you then you also go somewhere else. Avoid such friends who is involved in watching porn films.
Remember Allah as much as possible and chant and Zikr when you feel that are going towards such evil activity.
Question:I am currently in search of a wife who is religious, mature, compatible with me, and hijab wearing. I have been strict on searching for only hijab wearing spouses, is this ok? Should I not be so strict on hijab as long as she is religious and modest otherwise?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: The criteria for marriage in Islam is that the boy or girl but be religious.Now it must be cleared that what does it mean by Religious?A religious person is the one who follows the religion with his/her own free will and restrict to the rituals set by religion. Therefore anyone to whom we can call a religious person must be practicing Muslim. Now if a person is called a practicing Muslim it means he/she follows all obligations (wajib) and restraint from impermissible act( Haram) this includes Hijab also ( for women) and Modesty for both ( men &women). One of the major impacts of the modesty is that women must follow the hijab and men should lower his gaze while having contact with non mahram women.
If your criteria for marriage is that woman must follow the Hojab it means she must have modesty and it’s a good thing.
But in general normally people they say if you are a modest person then it’s enough and no need to have a traditional hijab i mean wearing veil (for women) that is totally a wrong concept because we have to follow the practice which has been set by Shariya (Islamic laws) also just wearing hijab is not enough for any women if she is unfortunately not having modesty.
Therefore for any women and men modesty is the most required thing with practical conditions ie women must follow Hijab while men should lower their gaze .
Question:I have been struggling with a sin for quite some time now, but have had little success in quitting. It leaves me wondering why Allah SWT has not granted me a way out of it. I've struggled for years and have tried so many different things, but nothing has worked. Am I doing something wrong on my part that may block me from receiving Allah's help? I'm confused as to why He has not granted me the ability to stop sinning?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: لَهُ مُعَقِّبَاتٌ مِّن بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ يَحْفَظُونَهُ مِنْ أَمْرِ اللَّهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يُغَيِّرُ مَا بِقَوْمٍ حَتَّىٰ يُغَيِّرُوا مَا بِأَنفُسِهِمْ وَإِذَا أَرَادَ اللَّهُ بِقَوْمٍ سُوءًا فَلَا مَرَدَّ لَهُ وَمَا لَهُم مِّن دُونِهِ مِن وَالٍ

For his sake there are angels following one another, before him and behind him, who guard him by Allah's commandment; surely Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition; and when Allah intends evil to a people, there is no averting it, and besides Him they have no protector.(13:11)
There is a famous saying:
“God helps those who help themselves.”
Allah (swt) has given us an intellect which differentiate us from other animals. If I ask anyone to jump from a high building will he be able to do so?? While he knows how to jump. But he will never do such silly mistakes why because it’s Cristal clear for him that he would either die or get severe injuries. Same way we Human do Gunah frequently because we don’t know the consequences of that Gunah. That is why Quran is warning us in every step of our life. That what is wrong and what is right.
Make sure a Human remains Human as long as he listens his inner voice (zameer) and when his desires get dominant over his intellect he becomes a wild animal.
That is why Allah has given us an intellect to follow His path in the light of Quran.
Strengthen your will power inshallah you will be able to get victory over your desires.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Why do we whisper during dhur and asr salah?
Amswer: According to one of the tradition from the Imam Redha (a.s) he says that all prayers which we pray at night we should recite loudly inorder to those who dont know that the time of prayer has set in can join but during day time its very clear for every one. also according to one of the hadis where Holy Prophet (saww) says that when he went on Meraj he saw that in few prayers Angels were also following him and Allah (swt) because of importance of those has instructed to diffenciate those one by reciting few of them loudly and few silently. Also if all the reasons are not enought to understand one thing is very clear that we as a slave of Allah should follow His command whiout knowing the real reason of that particular act.

Why do we have to recite salah in arabic?
Why do we raise our hands when we say “allahu akbar”?
Answer: We know well that any language if you translate it into another lanuguage we can not express the same maening and context what has said in original language. for eg in the zikr Ruku we say "Subhana Rabbi al Adhim e wa behamdehi" and in Zikr of Sajda we say "Subhana Rabbi al A'ala wa behamdehi" now what is the difference between "Adhim" and "A'ala" as in english we say Great and High but it is not exactly what it is meant in Arabic. also Itself Sura Hamd what context it has in Arabic no one can translate it into other language as it has said in Arabic. Therefore it is wajib to recite Namaz in Arabic.
Also Islam wants to maintain Unity amongst all Muslims and if every person comes and start reciting Namaz in his own language they will most surely do something less or more but if they recite it in Arabic they will maintain what Holy Prophet (sawt) has said and recited it exactly.

Why does the muazzin cover his ear with his hand when reciting adhan?
Answer: Its just to raise hos voice up to loud and nothing. also he can listten his own voice and can check as it is good or not. Also raising ones hand up is a sign that he is calling people and aslo showing that what he is saying is having a graet meaning.

Therefore its just a sign and nothing elso and its not a wajib act we can put our hand on our chest to show our respect to that holy Imam.
