Question:Should we do a majlis e aza on the eve of the 7th safar, birth day of imam Al Kadhim (as)?

Question:I would really like to get your opinion regarding islamic nasheeds. The definition regarding ghina and music by Sayyed Sistani seems a little vague. He says that even if a nasheed (without instruments) would be sung in a 'ghina' way then it would be haram to listen to.
Would Maher Zain's vocal only nasheeds fall in that category or would they be fine to listen to, such as this one?

I really like his English nasheeds but I wanna be sure if they'd be fine to listen to, and feel like I need a knowledgeable person's opinion on this.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: I think the first one is more like a song that used for dancing, while I feel the rest are OK.
Question:I have travelled from Muscat to Riyadh for totally 13 days at 2 points.

Point A is on the outer side of Riyadh. Point B is in Riyadh City.

I have stayed at point A for 8 days and point B for 5 days. Both points are atleast 90 kms away from each other.

So will my namaz be Qasr for the entire trip for 13 days?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If your statement of 90 km is correct, then your prayers are qasr.
Question:Is a job as a portfolio manager/investment manager/credit analyst allowed? A portfolio manager creates and implements investment strategies for individual investors or institutions who invest in different funds. As a portfolio manager, you need to allocate the funds to the right investments so that as a result, the return on investment can be maximized. Since we are advising investors to maximise their returns, is this type of job allowed, as interest will be involved in determining where the highest return is?

I'm not really familiar with which jobs aren't allowed, I'd never want to be in a haraam profession/role.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: To this extent, there is nothing haram in it.
However, if it involves putting money as deposit in banks, and negotiating profit with banks owned by Muslim individuals or Muslim Governments, then this part is haram.
Question:I was wondering if one can regard a Sunni narration (such as one found in Sahih Bukhari/Muslim) as trustworthy in the light of the Ja'fari jurisprudence? I see Shi'i scholars use Sunni hadiths to make specific points.

I talked to a Shi'i brother regarding this, he said that it's best to disregard these whole collections as they might be biased. Thus even the most innocent looking narration about morality can be considered a fabrication.

Is this true?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: Not necessarily.
If the narration is not against Qur'an and the proved sunnah, then it could be considered if the narrators are trusted.
Question:How do we know which hadiths in the Sunni hadith books are muwathaq?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: This requires deep studies of the narrators chain.
Question:I have a medical issue where droplets of urine fall on my pants after urinating. I am worried about that the purity that my pants have would prevent me from doing salah.

What is the best way to practice istibra to prevent this?

How could I make my pants pure for salah? Especially when there might be a smell of urine?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Istibra is performed as follows:
After urinating, the anus is first purified if it has become impure; then, the middle finger of the left hand is slid three times from the anus up to the scrotum; then, the thumb is placed on the penis and the forefinger is placed under the penis, and the thumb and forefinger are pulled three times along the penis up to the point of circumcision; finally, the end of the penis is pressed three times.
However, if after istibra you are certain that the fluid came out of you is urine, then you have to wash it.
Question:What is the best method to wash the clothes? Can one sprinkle water on the clothes where the urine is present or does the whole pants have to be cleaned?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: It is enough to wash the effected area. You do not have to wash the whole pant.
