Question:Shaadi mai dulhan ko kisi non muslim se mehndi lagwa sakte hai ?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Ji bilkul lagwa sakte hain magar make sure ke dulhan ke uper bhi 5 waqt ki namaz wajib hai lehaza namaz ke waqt use is baat ka khayal rakhna hai ke agar mehndi non Muslim ne apne khule hathon se touch kiya hai to use namaz se pahle wash karna zaroori hai.
Question:Agar kahin mojiza hua ho aur kisi shakhs ne mere whatsapp par photo ya video ke zariye usse bataya ho toh kya mai usse aage forward kar sakta hu?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Jab tak koi bhi cheez aapke liye khud qabile aitbar na ho aap nahin bhej sakte. Khud ko yaqeen hona chahiye tahqiq ke sath. Magar in sab ke bawajood bhi hamari aapki aisi koi sharyee zimmedari nahin hai ke ke har cheez ko share hi kiya jaye.
Question:Is namaz e wahshat a community namaz to be performed by everyone or is to be performed only by the wali of the mayyat.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: None of the prayers which has been recommended (but are not wajib) have no such ruling. So Namaz Wahshat e Qabr also cannot be a community namaz but if anyone wants to offer is send Sawab to the Marhoom can offer but Ayatullah Sistani (May Allah protect him) says that in case of other that Marhooms relatives he/she should do “Niyyat of Reja e Matloob” (May Allah accept it) not Mustahab.

Question:I need some serious help. My faith is declining

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: Seventh Imam, Imam Musa al Kadhim ( a.s) says:

مَثَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِ مَثَلُ کِفَّتَیِ الْمِیزَان
Example of a believer is like a plates of a balance( scale)« کُلَّمَا زِیدَ فِی‏ إِیمَانِهِ‏ زِیدَ فِی بَلَائِه
Whenever he increases in his faith Test and exams becomes more for him.
Therefore we should ask Allah of oh Allah ! Test us as long as we can bear it!

Please this Ayat from Sura Baqra which we recite in our Qunoot also:


لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا لَهَا مَا كَسَبَتْ وَعَلَيْهَا مَا اكْتَسَبَتْ رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا أَنتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ

Allah does not impose upon any soul a duty but to the extent of its ability; for it is (the benefit of) what it has earned and upon it (the evil of) what it has wrought: Our Lord! do not punish us if we forget or make a mistake; Our Lord! do not lay on us a burden as Thou didst lay on those before us, Our Lord do not impose upon us that which we have not the strength to bear; and pardon us and grant us protection and have mercy on us, Thou art our Patron, so help us against the unbelieving people.(2:286)
Question:I want to know that is it allowed for a bride and groom to meet and understand each other before getting married (without nikaah)


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes they can talk face to face if they have intended to get married but as you said within the Islamic rulings. I mean they can’t flirt and they have to treat each other as a non mahram.
Question:I am having severe hairfall I tried everything from medication to nutrition but nothing worked yet. Is there any dua or way to stop hairfall provided by our aimmah (a.s.)?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Please recite with faith the below mentioned Ayah from the Holy Quran and write it and put it into olive oil and apply that oil in your scalp do Ghusl on Friday inshallah Allah will give you Shifa.

أَوْ كَالَّذِي مَرَّ عَلَىٰ قَرْيَةٍ وَهِيَ خَاوِيَةٌ عَلَىٰ عُرُوشِهَا قَالَ أَنَّىٰ يُحْيِي هَٰذِهِ اللَّهُ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا فَأَمَاتَهُ اللَّهُ مِائَةَ عَامٍ ثُمَّ بَعَثَهُ قَالَ كَمْ لَبِثْتَ قَالَ لَبِثْتُ يَوْمًا أَوْ بَعْضَ يَوْمٍ قَالَ بَل لَّبِثْتَ مِائَةَ عَامٍ فَانظُرْ إِلَىٰ طَعَامِكَ وَشَرَابِكَ لَمْ يَتَسَنَّهْ وَانظُرْ إِلَىٰ حِمَارِكَ وَلِنَجْعَلَكَ آيَةً لِّلنَّاسِ وَانظُرْ إِلَى الْعِظَامِ كَيْفَ نُنشِزُهَا ثُمَّ نَكْسُوهَا لَحْمًا فَلَمَّا تَبَيَّنَ لَهُ قَالَ أَعْلَمُ أَنَّ اللَّهَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Or the like of him (Uzair) who passed by a town, and it had fallen down upon its roofs; he said: When will Allah give it life after its death? So Allah caused him to die for a hundred years, then raised him to life. He said: How long have you tarried? He said: I have tarried a day, or a part of a day. Said He: Nay! you have tarried a hundred years; then look at your food and drink-- years have not passed over it; and look at your ass; and that We may make you a sign to men, and look at the bones, how We set them together, then clothed them with flesh; so when it became clear to him, he said: I know that Allah has power over all things.(2:259)
Question:What does Shia Islam say about Baha’i religion and Sufism?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Both are not accepted but if Sufism is not what normally a Sufi involves in e.g having wrong way of life with music and not practicing common practices of Islam then it would be a sect which has gone astray. Sufism with a separate ideology regarding the cognisant of Allah (swt) is not accepted unless they believe what Prophet (saww) has taught us. But unfortunately Sufism has mixed many more thoughts and ideologies which was not said by Prophet(saww) that is why we don’t accept Sufism but in parallel to Sufism what has been appreciated is Irfan (Mysticism). Baha’ism is a totally misguided sect. They are non Muslims they don’t follow any of the Obligatory acts of Islam eg Namaz, Saum and Hajj ect. and are considered Najis.
Question:Was Prophet of islam wounded in Uhud battle? Or any other battles?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: When the Muslims were defeated in the second round, no one remained with the Prophet except ‘Ali (a.s) and thirteen others of the companions of the Messenger. These thirteen were the first to come back to the Messenger after their flight. It is clear that ‘Ali's defense in that decisive hour was much more valuable than the defense of the thirteen companions put together.

The Messenger ... became the target of the pagan's attacks. Whenever a regiment aimed at the Prophet (saww) ‘Ali (a.s) charged the regiment and forced it to retreat.

Thus, we would not be erroneous if we say that ‘Ali (a.s) in this decisive battle had the exclusive honor of being the main defender of the Messenger and his Message, against the forces which no one other than ‘Ali (a.s) could face successfully. The Battle of Badr laid the foundation of the Islamic state, but the Battle of Uhud was about to destroy the foundation, had not a small number of heroes headed by ‘Ali (a.s) been present.

The pagans found that the Battle of Uhud ended in their favor. They defeated the army of the Prophet, and the Muslims lost seventy companions, among them the giant hero: Al-Hamzah, uncle of the Messenger and Lion of God. But the pagan victory was not decisive. Their target was Muhammad (saww) and Muhammad (saww) was still alive. He was the biggest danger to them Therefore, it was necessary for them to have another decisive battle in which they would realize the goal that they could not realize at the Battle of Uhud.

The Battle of Uhud took place during the third year after the Hijrah. Two years later, the third decisive battle in which the pagans gathered their biggest task force, took place.

Muslim in his “Sahih” (Authentic) reported that Sahl Ibn Saad said the following:

The face of the Messenger was cut, and one of his teeth was broken, and the protective dress of his head was broken. Fatima (s.a) daughter of the Messenger, was washing the blood and ‘Ali(a.s) was pouring water he brought by his shield from Al-Mihras. Beholding that the water increased the flow of blood, she burned a mat, put some of its ashes on the wound and the blood stopped.(Muslim, in his Sahih, vol 12 p 148)
