Question:I am currently in a situation where I do not know what to do, so I was hoping I could ask you for advice. Recently, my parents have become more controlling of me and my siblings lives than ever. We are all old (22,19, and 18), and their restrictions are holding us back from doing many things we need for the sake of our educations. They are afraid that if we are out past 7 PM something terribly bad will happen to us, and we’ll end up getting mugged or killed. I understand their fear, however when we go out at night we are not in dangerous parts of town, and we do not participate in any dangerous activities, since we are at work or at the university studying. Additionally, they keep trying to force religious standards on us, (for example, forcing my sister to wear the hijab in the way they like), and because of those force my sister has told me that she intends on taking off the hijab. When they talked to her about the hijab they cussed at her and told her they’d make her life hell, and it certainly did not help the situation. My question is, would it be alright to distance ourselves from them? What if we moved out against their will? Would that be haram?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Firstly you must understand the position of the parent in the eyes of Allah. And although their methods may be perceived as harsh by you and your siblings; from what you are saying they are acting in your best interests.
I can’t see any grounds for you wishing to leave the home, all you are doing is running away from one trial to a harsher one.
If your sister wishes to remove her hijab this is not due to your parents but more to lack of faith. Would you stab yourself because you hated your neighbour? This is pretty much the reasoning your sister is using to disobey Allah.
Allah is pleased when your parents are pleased and angered when they’re angered.
You need to listen to your parents and be a good and obedient child, because by what you have stated your parents are religious parents. Parenting is not an easy task, if you upset them you will suffer in life and then the hereafter.
Now, this is how you should deal with the situation, you should sit and talk to them respectfully and if they insist you must accept their wishes.
May Allah guide us all.

Question:Is shaitan created with the same freewill as humans? How do they reproduce and how do they look like? Are there any hadiths on these?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Yes Shaitan is a Jinn, and the Jinn have free will.
In a very long narration narrated by our sixth Imam (as), Allah the almighty agrees to give Shaitan two offspring for every one Adam (as) has. As for his appearance, I have never read any descriptions about this, I am unaware if there are any present. But I have not found any.

Question:There are so much delay in my Duas I don’t know why I don’t sin or I sin really less and I do tawbah but then why is my Duas not getting accepted? I don’t ask for dunya I only asked for like some things but like I asked especially for seeing the masumeen someone of them but I can’t see them I do Aamals but I can’t see them.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Dua has its prerequisites, these are what make a dua heard.
Also I cannot stress enough that the acceptance of the dua in no way will mean an immediate result . It may even be postponed until judgement day; on that day the supplicant will be so overwhelmed that at that moment he will wish that none of his other requests had been granted in the dunya.
When one understands the requirements for acceptance of dua, they will understand why some duas are not answered as they wish.
Nothing escapes the knowledge of the Almighty Allah. There is wisdom behind all His decisions; and due to this a dua being answered is contingent on whether or not it is of benefit to the supplicant or not.
An example is when a child asks his mother if he can play with fire. Would you allow your child to play with fire.
Most of the duas that we make to Allah (swt) are detrimental to us, though we perceive it not.
As one narration states: “There are those amongst My servants for whom only wealth is suitable [as opposed to poverty], and were I to consign them to anything else, they would have certainly perished. And indeed there are those amongst my servants for whom only poverty is suitable, and were I to consign them to anything else, they would have indeed perished.”

Al-Majlisi says the following about response to dua:
1. Allah’s (awj) promise to grant the requests made to Him is conditioned on whether they are in accordance with His will, for Allah (awj) says, He will remove that for which you supplicated Him, if He wished (6:41).
2. Allah (awj) accepts the supplication right away but postpones granting the supplicant’s request so that the latter would continue in his supplication, for the believer is the beloved of Allah (awj) and He loves to hear His beloved.
3. Allah (awj) grants only those requests that are to the advantage of the supplicant.
