Question:My brother-in-law is a person who does not pray Namaaz. He neglects them. However, he does Fast in the month of Ramadhan. He does not pray during these fasts. Are his fasts invalidated, or only his prayers Qadha?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: His fasts are in order, but not acceptable, as accepting any deed depends on prayers. However, he needs to makeup all the left prayers only.
Question:I have a question regarding smoking while fasting. Does this invalidate the fast or is it still valid?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes. It invalidates the fast.
Question:My family wants to adopt a cat, but we are not sure about the najasat of the animal. On Ayotallah Sistani's website, it states that the cat is not najis, but the feces and urine is. Does this mean that having the cat as a pet is not allowed, since the cat will eventually step in their urine when using the litter box? Or is the cats paws and fur not able to transfer najasat? Are their hairs najis? On Ayotallah Sistani's website, it states that 2-3 hairs are okay to read namaaz, but do the hairs make the furniture najis?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It is allowed. However, if it spilled its outcome on the carpet, floor, or clothes, it will require cleaning. The hair is not najis. However, it is not allowed to pray with parts of not eatable animals on body or clothes. Yes, according to his Eminence, 2 or 3 hairs does not harm the prayer.
Question:If we touch the dead animals like rats or birds to bury them, do we become najis? Does ghusl get wajib on us by touching dead animals?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You just need to wash your hand, if it was wet.

Question:Respected ayatollah khamenai has given the fatwa that tatbeer is forbidden, also respected ayatollah sistani has given a fatwa that states tatbeer is forbidden whereas some other ayatollahs state that its fine to practice tatbeer
My question is:
1) Is tatbeer jayaz or not jayaz if yes/no then why?
2) Why do all the ayatollahs give different fatwa on a same topic?
3) If the one whom I follow states that tatbeer is forbidden I should follow him but the other says no it isn't forbidden then the people who follow them are wrong?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1- S. Sistani has not given any fatwa, neither positive, nor negative in this regard. Hence, we can not say it is jayez or not jayez.
Since he do not have a statement about it, you can refer to someone else, and follow his fatwa.
2- This thing was not practiced in the Imams days. Hence, there are no narrations about it. Therefore, no one can say it is haram.
Saying it is haram depends on certain criteria, such as:
1- If it leads to bad image of Shia.
2- If it leads to harm your body seriously.
3- If it harms someone else, like those who are practicing it with their kids.
Question:Must the Shahada be recited in Arabic for someone willing to convert?

Question:1) We have a kid in our family who is angry almost every time. Is there a dua to calm him down?

2) We also have some family issues that has lasted for decades. One of our men in family has had absolutely no luck in getting married. Decades have gone by but everyone rejects him. What can we do? Every female rejects him either because of his age or his appearance. He has no requirements for his wife. He only wishes for a pious religious wife. What should he do?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1- This is not a dua issue. It requires good raise up ways by parents.
2- Let him take care of him self (appearance), and try to find a woman that matches with his age.
If he is not able to find a girl, let him marry a widow or a divorced woman.
