Question:My question is why would a 20-30000 army give a whole day to every healthy male individual of the army of Aba Abdullah why would not that army attacked the tents of Ahlulbayt with thousands of arrows and if any how they would have survived that attack why wouldn’t the army of Yazid attacked with full gallop and finished the battle once

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There are etiquette of warfare. We cannot dictate history. Not everything happens the way we expect either. Arab warfare rules say best to do dual and respect women as well. Also imam Hussain dug a trench with fire to stop attack from behind
Question:Is there any hadith from Ahleibayt which in clear words rejects - slavery in Islam?

5 Question: What is the kaffara of abortion?
Answer: In case the mother aborts the child, she must give the indemnity (blood money) to the father or other heirs. And if the father carries out the abortion, the indemnity is obligatory on him and he must give it to the mother. If it is the doctor who carries out the abortion, it is obligatory on him to give the blood money to the mother and father, even if he may abort the fetus on the parents’ request. He must give the blood money except if the heirs (i.e. the mother and father)exempt him.
It would suffice for the blood money of the fetus into which soul has entered to give 5250 mithqals of silver. That is when the fetus is male and if it is female, half of that amount should be paid.
If the fetus is lifeless and it is in the form of a fertilized ovum (zygote), 105 mithqals of silver would suffice for the blood money. In case it is in the form of a leech-like substance, the indemnity is 210 mithqals. If it develops into a chewed-like substance, the indemnity is 315 mithqals. If the fetus has bones, 420 mithqals of silver would suffice. If it has developed into a complete human body with grown up limbs and organs, the indemnity is 525 mithqals of silver. If the fetus is soulless, there is no difference between a male fetus and a female one as an obligatory precaution. The Soul enters the body at the fourth month of pregnancy except for when it is proved otherwise through modern technology.
If the fetus is alive and it is aborted, the indemnity is 5250 mithqal of silver for a male child and 2625 mithqal for a female child.
*Every mithqal of silver is equivalent to 4.64 g of Silver.*

Question:Are we allowed to perform Mustaab / daily nafal prayers( Namaz e Shab, Daily prayers nafals etc) sitting down with or without any valid excuse. Would we get half the reward? As I heard that nafal or Mustahab prayers can be performed even when you are walking. Could you kindly advise me according to Shareya and my Maraja's Touzeeh. I follow Ayatullah Khamanie.


Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Yes we can and it’s fine even without an excuse. This is not the case for wajib salah though. Allah knows best about the reward. Ofcourse it’s best to do the prayer standing.

Question:There have been many proposals that have come for me, but none have gone through for their own separate reasons. Are there any duas specifically for marriage, one that can help with the process of looking for a spouse? Are there also any duas to help with mental health, as I fear that my mental health will continue to deteriorate throughout this process of looking.
JazakAllah

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1. Recite this verse many times a day (25:74)

2. Do this prayer if you can and ask you hajaat
3. Seek professional help for mental wellbeing. There is nothing wrong with that and it will help you a lot, such as CBT.
4. Write down why the proposals are failing and work out a plan with the family
