Question:In the stance that someone is gay (boy/boy) or (girl/girl)
1. Is it haram for them to have physical contact with someone they are attracted to? Like if a guy hugs a guy he’s attracted to (in a friend way) but the one that’s attracted thinks more than that. Does it make it haram on the guy that’s attracted
2. Is it haram for them to do things friends would do even though in this case both in this case are attracted to each other such as become roommates, have dinner, spend the day together... etc

Question:Me and my wife recently divorced. I cheated on her which is unfortunate and wrong. She’s told my friends that I’ve cheated and shown them whatever evidence. My friends have questioned me if it’s true and I’ve denied it. Reason being that I don’t think it’s right to reveal marital secrets regardless of who’s the victim and secondly it’s my personal secret.

Have I done the right thing by denying the truth when asked by my friends? I’m only answerable to Allah and not them.

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: No one had the right to reveal the secrets of others.

Question:So many times I've gone into depression, still struggling & hoping, reciting quran, offering different prayers but its human nature to think where are my duas going? Why aren't they answered?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: I can fully understand your frustration but the biggest solace for you me and anyone who pray and do duas and their prayers and duas do not give fruition is to remember that Imam Hussain also prayed on Ashura day to save his Ali Akbar, Ali Asghar, Abbas but non of that happened !!! But did the imam say why? No why? Because he knows that Allah knows best and we should keep praying if our prayers are not answered now they will definitely be answered later or on the day of judgment. Don’t give up on hope.
