Question:
رسول(ص-) کے لئے قرآن میں " سراجا منیرا " آیا ھے اود حدیث میں امام حسین (ع) کےلئے " مصباح " آیا ھے- اردو میں دونوں کا معنی " چراغ " ھے- تو سراج اور مصباح میں کیا فرق ھے؟-

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer:
دونوں بمعنی نور استعمال ہو ئے ہیں قرآن نے سورج کو سراج قرار دیا ہے جسکی نور ذاتي اور بتدريج ہوتا ہے
وَجَعَلَ الْقَمَرَ فِيهِنَّ نُورًا وَجَعَلَ الشَّمْسَ سِرَاجًا
(سوره نوح آیت ۱۶ )
اور رسولُ ص كو سراج منبر
وَدَاعِيًا إِلَى اللَّهِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَسِرَاجًا مُّنِيرًا
(سوره احزاب آیت ۴۶ )
اور مصباح چراغ جسے اطراف سے محفوظ ركها جائے
Question:I have recently claimed 2 mobile phones from insurance which is a false claim. I mean that the phone was not lost but still I made a claim, saying that I have lost a phone. So I want to ask whether should I pay back the amount of the false claim or would I ignore this, because I still paid my insurance fees and claim fees.

Please help me, because I don't want to get caught or punished in Akhirat/ grave.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: As you said it was false claim therefore this act was haraam. Yes you must pay back the amount of the false claim. Yes you are right you are paying insurance fees but as we know that you are paying for right claim not for false one.
We are representative of Islam we must understand our responsibility

Question:Is i true that if you have need to go to washroom to urinate and you offer your prayers its invalid. But If someone has flatuence (gas) issue when praying and while praying he is controlling it and not releasing so is his/her namaz in order? Is wudhu also baatil?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If it was controlled then namaz and wudhu are in order but if from beginning if some one feels and started prayer and prayed then still namaz is correct and in order but this act is makrooh.
If someone passes gas or urinate then yes wudhu is also batil.
