Question:I met my husband almost (Removed) years ago but we married muta. Our muta has ended but I’m pregnant now and we still sleep with each other I wanted to know is this considered halal? Do we have to renew or how does it work

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: It is haram.
He is not your husband any more.
You have to renew the marriage, by either permanent or temporary (mutaa) nikah. Sleeping together without marriage contract is zina.
Question:Where is the line stand between cheating on my wife versus trying to get to know a second woman to potentially make her my second wife. If I am married with kids and I want a second wife, how can I meet another woman without it being considered cheating on my current wife.

Ayatollah:Fadhlallah

Answer: The second marriage is not deception, it is legitimate. However, my advice to you is to study the case and weigh it carefully before taking an action, so if you are comfortable in your family life, and you know that this step will lead to the collapse of stable life, then, it is unnecessary, and not recommended to do it.
Question:With regards to the distribution of the sacrifice at Mina, one of the three portions is to be given to needy faithful.

Answer: No problem.
Question:Can we pray while having a cat at home whose fur might be around or on our dress , will our salat be valid ?

Question:My question revolves around the car business. If some of my income is derived from collecting interest, is this considered haram income? Let me give you details: Customer comes to the car dealership to buy a car, requires financing, we contact the bank and the bank gives us an approval interest rate, the dealership in turn marks up that approval rate and profits the difference. My paycheck is derived from getting a percentage of that difference. Is this haram income because the source is from interest?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: My question revolves:
If you are 100% sure that your paycheck contains such part, then it is haram, and you have to pay it back to the customer, and if you do not know him, then you have to give it as sadaqa on his behalf (if he is Muslim).
But, if you are not sure, but you suspect that part of your paycheck is from that income, then you are in the safe side.
Question:I live with my (Removed). He and his girlfriend doesn't follow any religion. They drink alcohol and go to the disco. When there is a party ( that have alcohol and music) they invite me. For example now is his girlfriend birthday. She invited me but they will be drinking alcohol. I don't drink alcohol and I don't feel comfortable going there. I also don't want to sound rude to them because I respect them so much. What am I supposed to do? I am a woman who wears hijab so I have the responsability to represent islam so I don't feel happy and comfortable

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: What do you mean with (they do not follow any religion)?
Was he Muslim, and he became Non-Muslim?

However, if you are not able to live alone away from this unhealthy surrounding, and you are forced to continue, you can tell them politely that you are Muslim, and your religion does not allow you to attend such parties.
Question:I frequently doubt whether I have performed istibra after urinating. Rationally, I think that I usually (perhaps even almost always) perform it as a matter of habit/routine, but after leaving the restroom I often doubt whether or not it was performed. Sayyid Sistani’s ruling is that if an unknown fluid leaves the urethra, it should be treated as impure if one doubts whether or not he performed istibra. Does this pertain to a “frequent doubter” on this matter who genuinely intends to almost always perform istibra anyway? What if such occurences are very common, lead to frustration, and can almost certainly be classified as waswasa?

Ayatollah:Sayyid Sistani

Answer: If it is converted to what is called (waswasat shaitan), then do not bother about it.
