Question:Is it haram to cheat and if so what is the punishment?
If there was a condition in the Muttah contract that the male cannot take another partner and he breaks the contract and does, what’s the ruling/punishment?
As well if he forced the girl to change her mahr and kept prolonging giving her it?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: All of the above is haram and in regard to the last question the whole contract becomes questionable and the mahr must be paid otherwise the relationship is bordering a haram relationship
Question:My question is regarding the obedience to father. My father has always physically and mentally abused my mother. He never gives up any chance to humiliate her in front of guests. He took away all the money my mom earned. He got me married off to a man without asking for my permission and now he is doing the same to my sister. He beats my mother and has had affairs with many women. He always treated my mom as a doormat . I hate the man for ruining our lives. We have always been obedient to him and he boasts about the fact in front of all his friends that no one in his family can dare say anything against his decisions. My question here is what does Islam say about obedience to such fathers?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: He has no obedience based on the fact that he is unjust and does things against his own Islamic values. You are however required to keep a cordial relationship with him.

Question:How does one tell a sibling that they don’t want to attend there wedding as their will be music, I think throughout the whole wedding until they may talk. I also think there may dance at the end as I attended a cousins wedding in the past, they had that. The sibling said it will be similar to that cousins wedding. My family are not religious and I have been blessed to follow the path of the Ahlulbayt (as). I have gone in the past to cousin wedding and I felt bad attending as I did not know that it would happen. I have nothing against my sibling and are happy for them to start a new life of marriage. I don’t want to attend as I don’t want to put myself in an position that disobeys Allah swt. I also don’t feel comfortable attending, it will cost a lot of expense to actual attend the venue as it is out of London. I don’t feel comfortable as I will be the only one wearing a hijab. I am proud of wearing my hijab, but not attending a function like this. The sibling may cause an grudge as they may not want to talk to me for not attending the wedding. We are not close siblings. I know that you need to keep good relationship with family members even if you don’t get along with them, at least the minimum.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You are under no obligation to attend. You can call your sibling getting married wish them the best and explain to them that you can’t attend not because you don’t want to but due the the nature of the event and what will take place.
Question:Being in Australia, if a Muslim shop owner is selling a meat which has written halal on it, is it permissible to consume it. Shop owner says that he is selling halal meat. Will that be sufficient.

Question:
I work And am a revert of many years and try and help in very hard cases of abuse, neglect etc.

I want to make a good and binding English contract to be included with nikkah.

I'm thinking that the easiest way is to have added to the nikka as a clause no matter Arabic, Urdu, etc that:

If a Civil Divorce has been granted in Australia * by courts then Islamic Divorce MUST be granted.

Please give advice or suggestions. Please note all reverts do not enter a marriage with even thought of divorce, but in some cases reverts are being extremely neglected as there is no family to support them. Sadly I can give you many cases. Here, UK, USA, Canada. Seems to be pattern sadly for many reverts or many stay married in fear of back lash of Muslim community.

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: I totally endorse the idea and I am a great advocate of prenups for every Islamic marriage
Question:I feel high imaan and as I pray and read quraana nd listen to scholars at home and try my best to stay connected to Allah. But as i move out of my residence and engage myself with my friends and surroundings I feel less imaan and remember Allah little. Is it a sign of weak imaan? Also I get a lot of kufriya waswase and random bad thoughts as well but instantly I ask for Allah's regufe from such thoughts and keep doing astaghfar. Please help me to know is it really signs of low imaan or its just waswase of shaytaan?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: As long as you always revert back to allah and ask for istighfar you are doing fine. This is your test in life so keep positive thinking engaged and always remember Allah much. Best remembrance is to ask Allah for forgiveness. As for when you go out, I think you need to rethink what sort of friends you are associating with if you don’t feel they help you remember Allah much. Friendship is about consolidating one another on the path of truth and IMAN but if your friends are not ones that help you promote your faith further then you should think again about who you want to hang out with.
