Question:I have a lot of qadha prayers to make up, over 3000, because I did not used to pray when I was younger. I pray one qadha prayer per day and find it difficult to do more than that. I think I become discouraged from the amount of qadha that I have. Do you have any advice as to how to motivate myself to insha'Allah do at least 5 qadha prayers per day instead of just one?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You can do only the wajib parts of the prayer.
This will shrink the prayer time, and you will be able to make qadha of a day in about 10 minutes, which is very short time.
Question:Please describe the best way for happy married life. We have many issues between us.

Question:If a person has many years of qadha namaaz Is it okay for the person to recite nawfila (mustahab) salaat as well? Or should they complete all the qadha prayers first.

There is no problem.
Question:In reference to Jamaat Namaz, Have 5 short Questions, past, present and future, etc
1) Past, when Prophet Ṣallā Allāhu ʿalayhu wa-sallam was in Sajdah, Imam Hussein ʿalayhi s-salām sat on the back of Prophet Ṣallā Allāhu ʿalayhu wa-sallam and The Sajdah was prolonged. Question: If anyone in the jamaat prayer raised their head from sajdah at that time, is their prayer accepted?

2) For present times question is: In Jamaat prayers anyone takes any tep before pesh imam says takbir, is their prayer accepted? If the answer is no, since the salat ends together, why rush? And why make practice for future?

3) Question for future. After Imam e Zamana alayhi s-salām's Zzuhoor, in his jamaat namaz, if Hazrat Isa alayhi s-salām or anyone goes to sajdah or rukoo before the Imam, is their prayer accepted?

4) What is the definition of pesh Imam in jamat prayers, presently?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1- If he know that the Imam is still in sojood, and he intentionally raised his head, his jama'ah becomes void, not his prayer.
2- Same as 1. However, I do not think that the people who do this are doing it in purpose, and if you told them so, they will deny doing it. Hence, their jama'a is also valid.
3- Do not worry, Issa A.S. will not do so, because he is not like us.
4- He is the person who you can hand your prayer to with peace of mind.
Question:I'm planning to marry a girl (PRESENT)years who's nikah was performed to another guy when she was (PAST)years. She did not had any contact with the boy and when she was (PAST)years decided to end the nikah. The boy and his family is not cooperating in divorce. So in this case, can I perform my nikah with her and get her divorce later on? Or she should get her divorce first and do the nikah?
Note: The girl and boy never met nor did they see each other any time during or after the nikah was done.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Since she is married, you can not get married to her.
She has to get the divorce first, then you can marry her.
