Question:What are some definite signs of Imam Mahdi? Can you please tell them chronologically.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: There are 5 inevitable signs, however these are directly associated with immediate appearance of the Imam (as), so that there is no excuse left for anyone on the face of the earth, to say: They did not know the Imam, or have any doubt about him.
1. The Sufyani : He will lead the dark armies, he may be what has been referred to as the Antichrist or the Dajjal (the imposter).
2. The Yamani : He is the harbinger of the coming of the Imam, a righteous man and a leader.
3. The sinking of the desert: an army of the Sufyani will sink into the desert and perish.
4. The killing of The Pure Soul: a Righteous man who is a descendant of the second imam (as) will be killed next to the Kaaba in Masjid al Haram.
5. The call in the skies: a call in the heavens that everyone will hear no matter where they are, that will let everyone know that the imam (as) has appeared.
Question:Who is the most knowledgeable marja to follow?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: There are many that are considered to be qualified. But I would choose Sayed Ali Sistani.
Question:What is the Islamic ruling regarding saying “Wallah” or like promising saying I swear by Allah when it’s not the truth or like the one who said it lying. I heard it has a kafarrah for fasting for 3 days, is this true? My marja is Sayed Sistani what does he say regarding this issue? Also is the kaffarah wajib to do meaning what if I don’t do it? Will I go to hell?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Someone who says qasam falsely should feed ten poor people each (750) grams of wheat or bread
Question:Is it Haram to participate and support an army that I know has done crimes against Muslims? Like if that army kills Muslims and does bad things and this is well known . Is it allowed to participate in the army or support it financially?

Question:If a string got najis when the najis cloths are not washed properly. Can it become pak with the sun light? If it's difficult to flow running water over it, what is the other method to make it pak.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You need to purify it with water, if you don’t have running water then you use other types of water.
Question:Please help me interpret this verse 65:4 Al Talaq, mentions the 3 months waiting period for those in menopause, those who haven’t gotten their period and those who are pregnant. I was a little surprised to see what “those who have no menstruated” was on the list. Does this mean pubescent girls? If thats what it means, then pubescent girls have to wait the three month (Iddah) to make sure theyre not pregnant with their ex husbands baby?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: “Those who have not menstruated” means any woman who is yet to have a period.
Who says that the waiting period is to determine that she isn’t pregnant? If that is the case, then why are there many different types of waiting periods. Just to add the pregnancy part is part of the ruling, but not the reason for the ruling.
Question:What can I do to make my trust in Allah so strong that nothing can break me again? How can I make my trust in Allah so strong that nothing will hurt me? I really have nowhere to go and no one to turn to. I am cast out by muslims and non muslims alike.
Allah is all I have and I want to pass these tests. I just don't know how
I pray the five fard, I pray qiyam and tahajjud both, I pray sunrise, I learn and study but I am still stuck with all these issues and the isolation and loneliness it brings
Can you please tell me what I can do to prove myself worthy to Allah? I learned sabr but I am searching for reda


Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: At what point do people understand that the world is not without suffering?
Allah will take you to the border of hopelessness
He pushes the test to its limits, but the solution is solely with him, so we keep a firm grip. The nature of this life is to have problems and issues. We always hear people complain about their issues, and portray false lives on social media.
إِنَّهُ لاَ يَيْأَسُ مِن رَّوْحِ اللّهِ إِلاَّ الْقَوْمُ الْكَافِرُونَ عَلِيمٌ
[12:87] surely none despairs of Allah's mercy except the unbelieving people.
Despair is the opposite of hope; despair is qunoot and end of hope in the mercy of ALLAH
The disbeliever’s thoughts and beliefs are all based upon cause and effect, physical laws govern all.
They don’t believe in God’s will and ability
The physical laws pertain to us, he transcends all of this.
This is essential in belief.
Sometimes our despairing state is a result of a known thing, like if a person has an illness and is afraid it becomes greater.
Sometimes a person is in fear and does not know why
What causes this?
Fear, we are naturally afraid of everything, and everyone tells us the worst.
‎إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ خُلِقَ هَلُوعًا
Indeed, mankind was created anxious:
Mankind of today are the most anxious, the most fearful and the most despondent of all time.
They live in the age of technology
Widespread illness the many strands of influenza, AIDS, Ebola, SARS, Zika and now COVID-19
Potential wars all around you, the situation brewing in the Persian Gulf.
One person every 40 seconds commits suicide; and approximately one person every 2 seconds is attempting suicide.
‎يَحْسَبُونَ كُلَّ صَيْحَةٍ عَلَيْهِمْ
Paranoia
How do I cure this?
‎Reliance on Allah because I need to believe that although all the observable and material causes are before me, I need that unseen factor to make things happen.
An individual upon encountering a problem automatically feels it is the end of the road.
‎إِن مَّسَّهُ الشَّرُّ فَيَئُوسٌ قَنُوطٌ
[41:49] if evil touches him, he is hopeless and despairing.
Blessings followed by affliction
When person loses a blessing they lose their minds
‎وَلَئِنْ أَذَقْنَا الْإِنسَانَ مِنَّا رَحْمَةً ثُمَّ نَزَعْنَاهَا مِنْهُ إِنَّهُ لَيَئُوسٌ كَفُورٌ
[11:9] and if we give man a taste of mercy from us and then we withdraw it from him, indeed, he is despairing and ungrateful.
Prophet Ayoub
‎وَأَيُّوبَ إِذْ نَادَىٰ رَبَّهُ أَنِّي مَسَّنِيَ الضُّرُّ وَأَنتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ
[21:83] and [mention] Job, when he called to his Lord, "Indeed, adversity has touched me, and you are the Most Merciful of the merciful."
Allah improved his situation after a long trial.
سَيَجْعَلُ اللَّهُ بَعْدَ عُسْرٍ يُسْرًا
[65:7] Allah will bring about, after hardship, ease.
The believer in the worst situations should fill their heart with hope.

Fire burns in normal physical laws –
Ibrahim and the fire, when he was launched into the huge blaze, the Angels offered him help
‎حَسْبِي مِنْ سُؤَالِي عِلْمُهُ‏ بِحَالِي‏
Only Allah
‎قُلْنَا يَا نَارُ كُونِي بَرْدًا وَسَلَامًا عَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ
Creation without cause
Adam and Issa
Story of Ibrahim and Zachariah and having a child at an old age
Ibrahim and his wife were aged between the 90’s to 100 plus

‎إِنَّا نُبَشِّرُكَ بِغُلَامٍ عَلِيمٍ قَالَ أَبَشَّرْتُمُونِي عَلَىٰ أَن مَّسَّنِيَ الْكِبَرُ فَبِمَ تُبَشِّرُونَ قَالُوا بَشَّرْنَاكَ بِالْحَقِّ فَلَا تَكُن مِّنَ الْقَانِطِينَ قَالَ وَمَن يَقْنَطُ مِن رَّحْمَةِ رَبِّهِ إِلَّا الضَّالُّونَ
[15:53-56] surely we give you the good news of a boy, possessing knowledge. He said: Do you give me good news (of a son) when old age has come upon me? -- Of what then do you give me good news! They said: We give you good news with truth, therefore be not of the despairing. He said, "And who despairs of the mercy of his Lord except for those astray?"

Likewise with the case of Zachariah
Many a times we see that people - who have no means whatsoever - are able to get rid of their afflictions and distress.
Due to the grace of Sadaqah, incurable diseases are cured and destitute become rich
People surrounded by calamities are saved in ways they could not have even imagined.
The Lord works in mysterious ways, the hidden benevolence of God.

Different people are tested differently, your trial is immense. But your solution is with Allah alone, whether you submit to this or not. This is the case.
Question:My family has completely severed all connection with me since I have embraced Islam and wear hijab. I have tried countless times to reestablish the connection but to no avail. Calls and messages remained unanswered untill I was blocked. When going to their home, the door was slammed in my face each time. Mails and letters remain unanswered. they do not want any contact with me at all.
Will I be held accountable as having severed these ties if I stop trying to knock on their door?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: Why would you be held accountable when it is they that have severed ties with you. They will be held accountable, you've made your attempts to no avail, so as long as you are willing to connect the tie you've done your duty; they're the ones thar have severed ties.
