Question:Is buying dividend stocks jayez? A stock is like a very small part of the company and a dividend stock is like that but it pays a specific amount annually on the companies profit

Ayatollah:Sistani

Question:Is it allowed to pray salaat in jammat with other people for a namaaz that has been qadha ie can we pray fajr in jammat at zuhr time and does it have the same reward as normal jamaat prayer?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You can’t pray your qadha fajr namaz with Jamat of Zohr namaz if you have not prayed Zohr already.
Yes if your Zohr is Qasr and you finished your 2 Rakat Qasr namaz with Zohr Jamat namaz then in 3rd Rakat of Zohr with Imam you can pray your 2 Rakats of Qadha of fajr namaz But from beginning you can’t start your fajr qadha namaz with Jamat of Zohr namaz.
Question:Is it permissible to wear the popular Turkish blue evil eye bead, or hang it up, if it’s with the intention of an adornment, not with the intention that this will protect you? Some say this would be Shirk, or at least imitate those who believe in such Shirk. Any Fatwa of any scholar you are aware of?

Ayatollah:Taqi Modaressi

Answer: As long as such things have only ornamental value in a society, it is no harm to use them but using such things on the basis of faith or believing that this can solve one’s problem is not allowed. We are not allowed believe in any kind of superstitions.
Question:I wanted to know to complete the Amal for 15 Rajab do you have to keep a fast? Or can the Amal still be done without fasting?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: All the Amaal and Fasting in these 2 months Rajab and Shaban are categorized as Mustahab act ( I mean recommended) so for if any any one wishes to fast any day out of these two months can do so and inshallah he/she will be rewarded. As far as performing an Amal is concerned, we have different amaal for different occasions but still no matter if somebody has missed out can perform any time. While it’s clear that we can’t compare the sawab of amaal done on that very day or night with if we perform it after passing the event. But as these amaal are Mustahab one can perform later on too and inshallah will get sawab. Allah(swt) knows better.
Question:Is it true that if I don't stay paak and stay najis like in junub, where I'm in need of making ghusl e janabat, for a long time purposely, then the bad jins might hurt me or slap me? Can this happen?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No this all myths but it’s Makrooh to stay remain for long hours in the state of Janabat and if Ghusl is not possible soon at least one should do Wudhu before eating and drinking.
Question:If I marry a second wife, do I have to inform the first one?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If a person wants to marry (temporary marriage) with Ahle Kitab (Jews or Christian) then he has to ask for permission from his Muslim wife otherwise if he wants to marry with another Muslim woman then there is no need for him to seek permission or inform his first wife.
