Question:My question is that when sperm get sticked to the cloth it is very hard to remove that sperm. I have washed my cloth several times but that sperm is not getting away. So, what should I do now. Is that cloth paak or najis?

Answer: I do not think that your sperm is super glue. You can wash it with hot water, and it will get away. If what is left is just a color, it is OK.
Question:When I was in school, sometimes I used to steal/ take pens, pencils and many other things of my friends. Even I took money from my parents without asking them. How can I pay kaffara?

Question:I live in sunni country, praying method calculation is diferent compare to Jaafari calculation. Example for Subuh the time is delayed by plus minus 15mins and so do maghrib plus minus 13mins.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There is nothing called Shia and Sunni timing for Fajr prayer. Normally, the congregation prayer takes place after 15 to 20 minutes from Azan, which is fair enough.

Question:When praying jamaah men and women are separated by a curtain, but before start praying the women open the curtain fully and I dont know for why until we can see them. The last row for the men is in front the girl first row and we can see them. Is it permissible like that? I dont understand why need to open the curtain.


Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: I think they are opening the curtain because they believe that Jama'ah is not correct if there is a barrier between men and women, which is not true.
Jama'ah is connected even if there is a wall between them, as long there is distance of 1 meter between the last raw of men and the first raw of women.
Hence, in your case, there is no need to open the curtain.
However, opening the curtain does not effect the jama'ah, but the men should not look to women.
