Question:i am a shia and i want to marry a sunni girl
Is it permissible in islam and if yes then give me some references that i can show it to my family for to convince them for marriage
give me both reference shia as well as sunni books so i could convince both the sides

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There is no issue in this concern you may do this marriage. If anyone who believes in Oneness of Allah and believes that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) his the last Prophet and believes in the hereafter is called Muslim and according to all Fuqha ( shia Jurists ) permanent marriage amongst Muslims are allowed doesn't matter which sect they are following.
Now if you want proof then our Aimmah's (a.s) life is the best example Imam Hasan (a.s) married w/o Jo'da binte Ash'as.Imam Mohammad Taqi al- Jawad (a.s) married with Ummul Fa daughter of Mamoon (Abbaside caliph).
there are many examples in history.
But you can't find any written proof in any book where has written that being a shia a person can't marry with a Sunni girl. Yes if are worry that you and your generation's faith would be affected your with this marriage then better not to do so otherwise there is no issue in doning such marriage.Later it would be your duty to convince your spouse to the faith of Ahlul bayt (a.s) to secure your future generations.
Question:I live in Sweden and it's normal to use makeup here. My skin doesn't look even, some places look darker than others, like for example under my eyes. Is it okey to use some foundation to just even out the color on my face and hide any irregularities? It will look like I have clearer skin but it won't look like I'm using a lot of makeup. Also it won't look like I'm tired or sick. Here in Sweden it's more common to use makeup than not. So if I don't it will attract more attention that what it would if I used a small amount.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: as for as make up concern it is not permissible to have make-up for non mahram in such a way that it could be considered as a Zeenat ( adornment) and this is not allowed.But what people think if you don't do much more make is not a criteria in Islam.Yes if some kinds of make-up is because of its frequent use now considered as a normal thing in a society then one can have such make-up with this intention to protect her skin but not to showoff (May Allah forgiven us).

Question:Sister please advice on the following issue--- in western part of world normally we make ghusl in shower. So after cleaning body, i make niyyat of wajib ghusl , and while standing under shower i first wash head and neck while saying niyyat 3 times, then turn my right side of body under shower and repeat the niyyat 3 times and then do the same for left part of body, shoulder to foot.
Is this a wrong method??
I saw a video clip where one moulana says that i have to step out of shower after each part is washed like head to neck is one, right side is 2nd and so on

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: In ghusl only once you make niyyat before starting is enough no need to repeat 3 times and no need to do niyyat before washing each part just do niyyat once before starting ghusl and washing each part under shower is ok. rule no 367 is saying , while standing under the water jerks each of these parts on one's body with an intention of performing tartibi ghusl,it will not be sufficient. but in your case u r turning your body so it is right way.
