Question:I was justifying to my Sunni friend why as Shia Muslims we look for the moon in our own country to declare Eid to be the following day. She asked what we do if it is too cloudy to see the moon, as for example we live in England and it is often cloudy. I didn't have a response to this. Could you please give me an answer to this?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If it is cloudy and there was a possibility of sighting in your own country (according to published knowledge) then according to A. Sistani, a sighting in another country can be followed.
Question:My question is regarding the cleanliness of dog. I have always heard from parents and grandparents that dog are considered as unpure similarly to pigs. I have always followed this but in recent time the activity of fellow muslims with dogs (caring, playing, kissing etc) specially the millennials made me to ask this question.
Are dogs impure and untouchable similar to pigs?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes Dog is najis but Najasat is only transferred through wetness, either ones body is wet, or the dog is wet, or it is the saliva from the dog.

In all other cases, najasat will not be transferred, however, one cannot do salaah with the clothes which has dog hair on it.
Question:May I know, If I make mistakes in the sunnat acts of my namaz, make my salat invalid ? For example, doing mistake in salwats or all the Allahu Akbar that are not wajib. Thank you

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No problem Namaz is still valid
Question:If I just do the zikr of the sunnat allahou akbar but without the gesture It's still correct please?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Only in first Allahu Akbar raising hands to ears is necessary
Question:If I make mistake in makhraj of the zikr in my salat , is it invalid ?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No it is valid but better to learn the makhraj and avoid mistakes
Question:I have so many questions about namaz and wouzou,

1) I heard that, when we make wouzou, and we don’t finished the massa of our feet, we can’t walk or move more than 3 steps. Is it true?

2) If I do mistake in the zikr for example, Do I have the right to just correct it directly? Or I have to re do my namaz again?

3) Moreover, if I am performing my namaz, my clothes slide, so we can see , the part of my body that Its wajib to cover (example my wrists) , do I have to re do my salat? Or just cover it again and continue it ?


4) If at the end of my salat, I realize that we can see a bit of my hair, do I have to re do my namaz , or its valid?

5) When I am saying the zikr of my namaz, and accidentally, I make a sound or I speak loudly, Make my salat baatil?

6) After I finished my prayer, I realize that I did a mistake in the Tasbi ate arba , I said ‘subhannallahi.... wa la illaha ILLALAHI...’
instead of ‘ .... wa la illaha ILLALAHOU...’
So , I just re do my namaz to be sure and to not have any doubt.
But know, the problem is that I dont know if I did this mistake or no before . So what do I have to do?
Is this kind of mistake make salaat baatil?

7) When I am doing my wouzou, and my arms just touch or touch something else like my clothes or the door for example, make it invalid ?

8)Then, do you have some advices to be concentrated in salat? I have so many difficulty to be concentrated ..


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1) It is best to complete all of the wudhu in one place if it is possible.

If due to lack of space etc one has to move then it must be in the state that one is doing wudhu. So for example, to keep on wiping the arms, then coming out to do masah on head and feet.

2) just repeat the zikr correctly and continue with Namaz

3) just cover and continue

4) it is valid

5) it is valid

6) it is valid
If you did it accidentally you can do sajdah sahw at the end and Namaz doesn’t need to be repeated.

7) no it is valid

8) better to prepare before the time and have a place reserved in house for Namaz which is free from distractions and other things
Question:I have question concerning the zikhr in namaz.

I noticed that before, I made many mistakes in the makhraj in namaz.
So, I learned the correctly pronounciation of it.

But, I still have difficulties to memorise it.
So, during my namaz, I repeat 3-4 times the same part of sentence to make the correct makhraj.

My namaz is still valid right? Even if I repeat more than 2 times the same word to pronounce it correctly?


Ayatollah:Sistani
