Question:My father has been diagnosed with Parkinsonism for more than a decade and recently we came across a medicine/oil which primarily contains cbd (cannabidol - cannabis). Although it hasn't been prescribed and nor has it been prescribed by our GP.

We've heard that it can potentially help ease pain and help him. Is it allowed for us to use cbd oil?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If it has the same adverse effects as the narcotic then no it may not be used.
Question:I made a pretty bad mistake. My heart has hardened alot in the past 2 years due to my constant transgressions and unthankfulness for the bounties the Almighty (SWT) had bestowed on me. I'm narcissistic, i have an inferiority complex, I'm arrogant, materialistic, a people pleaser, I've engaged in zina and masturbation, and I've done many sins in my past. But with all my flaws I know my heart is in the right place

I know despair is a sin but I can't help it due to my situation (it was my own fault and I take responsibility for it and can only hope that Allah (SWT) forgives me. I'm not doubting his mercy but I feel ready to give up, and yes suicide did cross my mind countless times but I couldn't do that to my family, plus an eternity in hell isn't worth it) please help me.

Ayatollah:Fadlallah

Answer: We are all lousy and not worthy, and it’s only Allah’s mercy that we rely upon and nothing else. Despair is from the devil, because his deception leaves you to believe that success is measured by wealth and that a sinner is useless and how dare he think that he stands a chance. The only thing that I want you to think about is this, if God was merciless and his mercy was only meant for the good; then why does he make so many avenues to get people into paradise? To the point that one may repent on their last breath.
My secret to living a happy life is to take one day at a time and stop thinking about tomorrow. Make your peace with Allah now and tomorrow deal with tomorrow. Imagine today as a new day and start walking in that direction.

Question:In his book 'the unschooled Prophe' Murtadha Mutahhari wrote our Prophet pbuh & hf could not read or write, pre or post revelation. However, an esteemed scholar on you tube said our Prophet pbuh &hf could read and write and it would be absurd to think otherwise. Can you please tell me which is the correct belief regarding our unschooled Prophet according to our contemporary scholars?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: The Prophet could read and write by evidence of the Qur’an.
In Surah najm, Rahman and Alaq.
The Prophet being illiterate is a Sunni opinion that some Shia have fallen victim to.

Question:I wanted to know if it’s valid to end a motaa marriage by message ?

Question:I notice a lot of folks would pray to Allah SWT to survive through a disease or have a long life.

But, from what I understand, our deaths are already written, and we can't hasten or prolong them right? I think there are ayahs on this but I can’t think of any in my head.

If I’m right then, am I wrong to pray for the long life of myself and family members?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You should pray for a long life in the service of Allah. And yes it can change the outcome, everything is in Allah’s hands.

Question:My question is in regards to najasat. Is it true that in western countries you have to assume that all the floors of the house are najis since someone else was living there before?
So you can not have wet bare feet to walk on such surface as it gets najis, is that a true concept?

Also are you to assume that the whole bathroom floor is also najis? Some people do not use slippers for the bathroom as they have the mats and they step bare feet on other parts of bathroom floor (tiles). Is that considered najis?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Everything is tahir until you know that it has become najis.
This rule is fundamental
Question:I believe in Allah, but how do I feel Allah SWT's presence around me? How can I feel that Allah SWT is watching me, so I don't sin? What I mean is that I feel disconnected from Allah SWT. How do I make my connection with Allah SWT stronger?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: How do you believe in Allah, but not believe he all-seeing, all-knowing?
You need to pray on time and supplication is essential. Especially morning prayer, you need to supplicate then.
Read دعاء العهد to reestablish a connection with the connection to Allah.

Question:I was wondering if this haram and counts as masterbation, I’m not touching my self with my hands or watching that site but sometimes when I’m hard my penis pushes against my underwear causing me pleasure related to this I would make my penis press itself against my underwear adding more pleasure. Is that haram? Also if my body is sore and I’m laying down my penis gets hard from the feeling of my body being sore like if my legs are sore and they’re on top of each other the feeling of the soreness on my body causes me to get hard. And I would put my legs on top of each other while they’re sore because I’ll know it will cause me pleasure I’m worried this counts as masterbation


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Anything that you do that will make you ejaculate without your wife doing stimulating you is masturbation.
So go get married, or do muta or practice abstinence and fast.
