Question:What is the rule regarding the following:

3. What about cleaning of pubic hairs. Can it be done in the salon/parlour?

Answer: 1&2- Both of the ways are haram, because they require the doctor to look at the wife vagina, regardless if it is male or female. However, if the normal way for pregnancy is not possible, and they are in bad condition for not having a baby, then they can choose any of the two methods, provided that getting the semen is done by wife’s hand.

3- Not allowed if it requires looking at or touching the vagina.

Question:If we are sleeping alone at night and if we find our undergarment wet in the morning, may be because of shaytaani waswasa,
1) How do we perform Ghusl, what should be our niyat? Ghusl e Janabat or something else?

2) How do we make the clothes paak? Can we put them in the washing machine?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1- Semen is recognizable, as it is thick and sticky. Hence, if it is not like that, then probably it is not semen, so, you do not need to perform ghusl.
However, if you are in doubt, and you want to perform ghusl, then you need to perform ablution as well.
2- If the washing machine washes two times with pure water, with spinning in between, then it is OK.
