Question:I’m following one hadeeth of Imams that is to eat less. Our imams have said one of the qualities of our Shia is they are thin because of less eating , they are pale due to night ibadat and dry lipped due continues zikr of Allah. Since I follow this from more than 18 months, now my body condition is I’m very lean, every bone of my body is out even my cheek bone are also out. Seeing this my parents, relatives all are requesting me to eat more at least let the bones of my body cover with flesh and my cheek bones hide. But alhamdullilah I’m strong and have no other health issues, the only thing is my parents want me to eat more and cover face and body bones. Now what shall I do listen to my parents or continue to follow hadeeth. Please guide me


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Follow the teachings of Ahlul Bayt (as). Obeying your parents is above all that you have mentioned.
Question:What qualities of human beings make them equal or superior than angel’s?

Question:Can you take nebuliser whilst fasting. Is it permitted?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: As long as the medicine isn’t been swallowed, your fast is valid.
Question:Is there more of a description to Jannah that human mind cannot process or imagine? As In there are true facts to Jannah that the human being cannot fathom with the mind in this life?


Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: Yes, from what we have read there most definitely is. It is sufficient to say that what is of this world is perishable and all things come to an end. To deal with an eternal world will be hard to grasp in our mind.
Question:I have a question which I could not figure out for myself. If Allah truly created us in pairs like he promised us in the Holy Quran, why do some people never find a partner to marry. Like Bibi Fatme in Qom Iran or Prophet Jesus a.s. Or even females around us who are not getting any proposals.


Ayatollah:Fadhlallah

Answer: Creating things in pairs does not mean that you and a spouse were created for one another. Every living thing was created in pairs as in a male and a female.
Question:My question is regarding the offset account which is normally attached to a home loan. Normally offset account helps with the home loan repayment’s interest figure. If there is an amount in that offset account does khums have to be paid on that figure if- 1. The amount is owned by that individual 2. The amount is owned by bank as part of the loan however it hasn’t been taken out.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1. Yes, you need to pay khums on it
2. No, if the bank owns it and you have no access to it then no.
Question:I have a question about creating a business. Basically my concept is to create a tournament for a video game (requires skill cannot be won off of luck). Where each team pays an entrance fee, and there are cash prizes for winners and runners-up. People would sign up on the website and compete against each other to win. The business would profit by subtracting the prize value from the revenue received from the players in the tournament.

Would this be permissible? If not, what would make it halal?


Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: So it’s a registration fee that will be used to run the tournament. This would be no different to how sporting leagues are run.
However it is important for me to point out. Working isn’t only for making money, as this guaranteed from Allah. Working is to provide people with a good or service; something that is beneficial to humanity. A gaming tournament is hardly that, this only will encourage people to remain slothful in acquiring their sustenance. That being said, I don’t see where it is forbidden.
Question:What sins does Allah (SWT) forgives and what sins he doesn't forgive?
What if for the sin we have repented deeply and promises Allah to not repeat the sin again. Can you mention in detail

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: There are no sins that Allah doesn’t forgive if one repents and makes amends.
But if one dies that is a different story, Allah doesn’t not forgive ‘shirk’ - associating others with Allah - other than that, Allah may forgive.
But I wouldn’t take my chances, I would repent and make amends now.
If the sin is against others, I need to get forgiveness from the other parties I have oppressed.
Question:I have been struggling with my mental health recently and in the past have had bad coping mechanisms
Unfortunately I am getting the urge to self harm again and I am trying not too but this is very very hard. To stop myself I have been snapping a rubber band against my wrist instead. Is this okay as it stops me from doing anything else?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If you are suffering from a mental health illness you should see a medical practitioner. As for snapping yourself with a rubber band, as long as it doesn’t mark and make damage, I don’t see a problem with it.
Question:I have come across many people who believe that the use of poppy Seeds is haraam as it can be addictive. And some also call it a kind of drug.
I just wanted to clarify if it is actually haraam or we can use it?
Not just for a limited personal use but also for business purposes (to include in commercial recipes and etc)

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If they have the same effect on you as opium does then they are forbidden, otherwise if they don’t then they are permissible.
