Question:My question is should we view the tragedy of Karbala moreso as a praise of the Ahlul Bayt or should we view it in terms of its broader messages (such as justice and imaan and oppression) without so much focus on the Ahlul Bayt? My understanding of Karbala was not with a focus on the ahlul bayt, but of the universal ideas of divine justice and truth.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It depends upon a person how he feels like observing Karbala in light of teachings of Ahl e Bait a.s.
Question:I was wondering if it was problematic to believe that the Prophet had other daughters besides Fatima. I had learned as a Sunni that the prophet had other daughters besides Fatima, and I have recently learned that there is no evidence for it. Does believing the Prophet had other daughters make Fatima have less virtues?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Although her infalibality and virtues doesn't become less but facts are to be known that she was the only daughter of Holy Prophet s.a.w.w.
Question:What's the difference between Farz and wajib? Could you please explain this to me with some examples, like what are the deeds that are farz and what are wajib?

Question:Please let me know why the gold and silk are haram for men in Islam. (please help me with all the scientific and logical facts as I need to answer this to a non Muslim)

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: We in Islamic sciences don't go after scientific reasoning as science is in its initial stage. In my special words science is a baby of 200 to 300 years only and has to go much ahead to reach a position where they may not retract what they have proved before as many scientifically proved things were later retracted in medical field. I can quote ten things. So we need to wait for our 12th Imam (as) to come and guide us
Question:If someone has a child and wants to perform Amaal Umm Dawood, due to the child's needs and playing, can the person recite surahs at night

Question:Is it permissible to use credit card? If yes what if it incurs interest charges?

Question:Do you by any chance know where the ‘real’ Qur’aan is? Of course the whole Qur’aan is real, but the one which was in the era of Prophet (s) ?

Question:We set our Khums date as the 15th of August. So do we have to start counting all the income we have left over from maghrib time on the 14th or do we start counting what we have left from 00.01am on 15th August?
It’s just that we wanted to buy a wardrobe today (14th August) before maghrib but now it’s maghrib already so we were just wondering that the money we use to buy the wardrobe after maghrib, is Khums wajib on that money?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It's upon you what date and time you finalise, shariat accepts it
Question:My question is regarding the unecessary attachments. How does one stop expecting and being attached to people be it a family member or a friend? As happiest is the person who only attaches himself/herself to the Almighty and only expects from Him. But at times, one (unwillingly) gets attached to a person. How to avoid that and stop expecting from someone?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: One can do this only by attaching to Allah or His messenger or Imams (as). The way out is to recite tasbeeh with full concentration at a secluded place and talking to Allah s.w.t in person and by trying to attain more concentration in namaz. Also in free time try to see the creation of Allah on internet or TV, through hubble telescope or animal planet etc. This will increase your attachment with Allah s.w.t and come out of worldly attachments InshAllah
