Question:I have a expensive fake gold watch. Its only gold colored, nothing else. Can I use it?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes you can.
Question:I have been quite depressed with myself lately trying my best to do everything I can that can earn me a meeting with Imam. However, nothing happens at all.
On the other hand, my father shares his dreams. I do become happy about him but at the same it it depresses me greatly when I start questioning my worth before Ahlulbayt as if I’m transparent to them and they are ignoring me despite knowing how much I want them, as if I’m a very unworthy person and deserves nothing from Ahlulbayt . These thoughts had me feel quite hopeless, worthless as if I lost meaning to live.

I understand it’s up-to Ahlulbayt and Imam Mahdi to decide to meet us or no; and we don’t have a say in that; but how can we practice patient in regards to waiting for a sign or meeting them?
How can we aspire to meet them in our dreams and know they are happy with us? What can we do to have dreams of Ahlulbayt?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: The idea of pleasing Ahlulbait is not necessary based on meeting them nor the idea of not meeting them necessary translates into them not being pleased with us. We must simply strive to follow their teaching and remain steadfast on their path. Working on the assumption that I will do everything I can only so I can meet the imam is not a healthy phenomenon because of the very fact that it may lead you to doubt and speculation just like what happened in your case. Rather you must adhere to their teaching and that in itself is what pleases Ahlulbait
Question:From what I understand Al Khatib Al Baghdadi wrote that the collection of hadiths were forbidden during the Prophet’s (S) life. I wanted to ask, what does that mean exactly for those of us who rely quite a bit on Hadith?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: These ahadith that have been narrated to state that Hadith should not be written is mostly attributed to
Umar the second khalif and not to the prophet himself. In fact the prophet encouraged the writing of his saying. And Allah said in the Quran:


Holy Quran 59:7
------------------
مَّا أَفَاءَ اللَّهُ عَلَىٰ رَسُولِهِ مِنْ أَهْلِ الْقُرَىٰ فَلِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ وَلِذِي الْقُرْبَىٰ وَالْيَتَامَىٰ وَالْمَسَاكِينِ وَابْنِ السَّبِيلِ كَيْ لَا يَكُونَ دُولَةً بَيْنَ الْأَغْنِيَاءِ مِنكُمْ ۚ وَمَا آتَاكُمُ الرَّسُولُ فَخُذُوهُ وَمَا نَهَاكُمْ عَنْهُ فَانتَهُوا ۚ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ ۖ إِنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ
الْعِقَابِ

And whatever the Messenger has given you - take; and what he has forbidden you - refrain from. And fear Allah; indeed, Allah is severe in penalty.

Therefore Hadith is important to understand the Quran and to understand the Quran you need authentic narrations that are narrated and verified through Ahlulbait.
Question:May I know when a person curses one another, eg: during an argument or if one of the person is pregnant and cursing the other, does the curse come true? Please do shed your knowledge over the topic of cursing one another in Islam.



Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Cursing is not a good verbal action whatsoever. In fact avoiding it is at all times better and much more moral only in the event of oppression is being imposed in the person, that person is allowed to a very limited and specific term to curse and if the one that the curse of said against is a mumin then cursing us not allowed

Question:1) After coming from sajda we allahu akbar and then Astaghfirullah but if we say alhamdulillah instead of Astaghfirullah by mistake, then should we perform sajda e sahw?

2) If we miss the wajibs in namaz like niyat, takbeeratulehram, ruku and sajda and we got to know in between namaz that we have left something of these, then can we break the namaz? Or shud we complete the namaz and then again we should perform?

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: 1) It’s fine.

2) If you have missed let’s say ruku while you are in Sujud or about to go to Sujud, you can go back and do ruku and in the end do Sajidah sahw but if you remembered in the second Rakaa that you missed Sujud or ruku you have to repeat your salah, you stop your prayer and resume again
Question:I’ve been told by elders and the resident aalim of my community that there’s a Hadith of Imam Ali that states that sweeping the house at night takes away sustenance. Is that true? They refrain us from cleaning the house after dinner time because of this Hadith that states it takes away sustenance. Is there such Hadith present?

If so, how come the shrines of our imams and their courtyards are majority of the time cleaned at night time.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: In a nutshell there are no such narrations in fact we have narrations that speaks about leaving rubbish inside the house as a makrooh act.
Question:Is there a certain way that the flowers that were on placed on the alam or taboot should be discarded? We have been told by elders to throw them in the river. Does it matter?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It does not matter how they are disposed off.
Question:A Bedouin man who was leaving his camel without tying it. The Prophet (PBUH) asked him “Why don't you tie down your camel?” The Bedouin answered, “I put my trust in Allah.” The Prophet then replied, “Tie your camel first, and then put your trust in Allah.” Is this Hadith approved in our books?


Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Yes it .
