Question:I was walking on the road with my shoes on, and suddenly my feet kicked an animal poop that was on the road and was najis. My question is that now in order to make my shoe paak, I will be using kurr water, so, justing putting the shoe under the tap water(kurr) and rubbing the dirt from the shoe will make it paak at one wash? If other dirt remains on the shoe after washing once, but in that i get a doubt that whether that might be the najis intrinsic impurity or just some other dirt, then i can keep that without washing again and it will be paak?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You can rub it on the sand or mud and it will become paak.
Question:1)A friend of mine recently said that Prophet Muhammad had stoned a man to death for raping. Is this true as per shia history? And otherwise also, is this in the history of sunni belief that Prophet did such act?
2) As per shia islamic law, What should be the punishment that should be given to a man proved for rape and murder of a women?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1) It may be in sunni texts but in the Quran we don’t find the mention of stoning as a punishment.
2) Such hudood punishments can only be carried out by Imam e Masoom (as) therefore are out of the question in our time. We are therefore obliged to follow the law of the land we are living in.
