Question:My question is regarding the authenticity of naad e Ali. I've been reciting naad e Ali my entire life but recently I came to know that the chain of narration is not authentic. Can u provide a reference? If there is no chain of narration, can reciting naad e ali be considered as shirk? How do I explain it to my non shia friends?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer:

If the chain is considered by someone as weak or broken or unauthentic the wordings itself are so beautiful that to deny it due to any narration doubt is impossible just like dua e Sabah. Secondly asking help of Amir ul momineen a.s.is in itself as asking Allah s.w.t. as he is among the most humble Servants of Allah s.w.t.
Thirdly it is narrated that Holy Prophet s.a.w.w. had uttered these wordings during the battle of Khyber.

Question:Wanted to ask if it permissible for me to consume haribos which contain gelatine.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer:

It is permissible to eat if the doubt is whether it has been extracted from an animal or vegetable. But, if it is known that it was derived from an animal, then it is not permissible to eat without ascertaining that the animal was slaughtered according to Sharí‘a. This prohibition applies, as a matter of obligatory precaution, even if it was extracted from animal bones.
Of course, if a chemical change occurs (Istihala) in the original ingredients during the process of manufacturing the gelatin, there is no problem at all in eating it.

Question:I was on Khorasani’s English website, and it says that Namaz e Istighaasa should be performed for Hazrat e Zahra (as). Isn’t that worshipping a human and isn’t that considered shirk - or is there a problem with the translation.

Ayatollah:Wahid Khorasani

Answer:

All what we are doing in the form of ibadat is only for Allah s.w.t. When we ask for help from Masumeen a.s. it does not mean that they do these things for us by themselves, rather its the power blessed on them to perform these actions or we pray to Allah through their tawasul as Allah s.w.t. blesses those prayers which have tawasul of Ahl e Bait a.s

Question:I am asking on behalf of a friend who - while being a Muslim - for many years strayed from the path and didnt fulfil his religious obligations whether prayers or fasts. Only recently has he come back to practicing the faith, and has been working hard on making up for his past and genuinely reforming himself. However, one thing he is feeling hopeless about is making up missed fasts. He has calculated all his intentionally missed fasts for the month of Ramadan, and has come up with a personal number of having to either make up 8400 fasts as kaffarah (breaking a fast means fast 60 days) or feed 8400 poor Shia (60 people for each broken/missed fast). What should he do in this circumstance?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer:

First he should make a will and then discuss with an aalim about the reaaons of leaving a fast. If the outcome is that they were left in a condition which make kaffara wajib he may start giving food to needy mominee slowly as per his capacity and start keeping the qaza fast.
Allah all kindness and all mercy.
Be sure He will not leave him just like that.
