Question:What are the things required by a person to become a wali of Allah?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: Abstinence from sin, and performance of obligations is the beginning. The more abstinence you have the closer you will come to being of the awliyaa of Allah.
Question:Recently I've been going full force in trying to be a Mo'min. My Journey started while living alone. There was no one but myself to pull down. Now that I'm with my family again, I feel a loss of spirituality. My mom is emotional, and my dad is very logical and aggressive. My father insults my mom infront of all the children and apologies in secret. Anyways, when they are mad at each other my mom has a tendency to get mad at us for no real reason. When I first came back she mocked me for being religious. I too have a tendency to get angry. And I feel as though she trys to make me angry. I need some practical steps to correct myself.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: When you make the decision to become a better person, Allah increases the trial to see your resolve.
How can one claim to be a believer and not be tested? The better you become the harder your test.

أَحَسِبَ النَّاسُ أَن يُتْرَكُوا أَن يَقُولُوا آمَنَّا وَهُمْ لَا يُفْتَنُونَ

Do men think that they will be left alone on saying, We believe, and not be tried? (29:2)

1. Dua, ask Allah for assistance every morning after prayers.
2. Recite the Quran from the text
3. Don’t do many public displays of faith in front of your parents.
4. Nobody is perfect we all fluctuate, so you will fall, just pick yourself up again and start over.
Question:With all of the accepted practices that Islam follows with regards to marriage communications with a potential marriage partner how would one fall in love in such a way. So to be more concise, do Islamic practices with marriage guide us to marry a person you love or is it more geared to finding a person who has good heart and nice personality but not necessarily a person you'll fall in love with?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: I don’t believe that it is possible to fall in love with anyone without being in a relationship with that person. So love definitely comes after marriage, and not before. I believe that when one looks for what Islam dictates for them to marry, their chances of having a loving relationship increases. The risk of living in an unloving relationship is always present regardless, but it is more important to marry someone that follows Islamic requirements than to marry someone that you think will make the birds sing and rainbows appear every time you look at them.
Question:Can you please tell what is the best day and time for taking out an Istekhara


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Anytime after prayers, especially on Friday.
Question:Is it permissible to draw humans like Imams but blur their faces?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It is not forbidden to draw such things, but to believe that this image is actually a true appearance of the Imam is an erroneous belief.
Question:As a convert, I live with non-muslims parents (not ahlul kitab). I struggle a little bit with purity, especially when it comes to food. Can I eat with my parents out of taqqiyah (for the sake of unity, not fear) even though the food is najis (however it is halal meat)? My parents aren't happy when I do not eat with them.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If your mother prepares the food without touching them with wet hands, you can eat. Otherwise unfortunately you cannot.
Question:I have been wanting some religious help. Since last past few years we've not been able to be financially stable. Also, we are trying to conceive a second child since last 8 years now but everytime it's a big disappointment. I'm very tired and mentally exhausted. Sometimes I feel like ending my life or running away. Every door seems closed. My heart isn't finding solace anywhere. I've gone through so many treatments for this, but nothing gives results. Please help us out. Please tell us some wazifa or something that will give both my husband I some peace of mind and some solace.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: May Allah assist you in your situation and grant you a child. You need to understand that happiness and satisfaction is only a result of being content.

The nature of this life is to have problems and issues. We always hear people complain about their issues, but we are here to be tried and not to live in comfort, comfort was only created for the hereafter.

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.

The believer in the worst situations should fill their heart with hope.

Things always change, don’t forget that God fixes things.

Remember when you were young and how you never worried about anything because your parents had all bases covered. Why do we lose this as we grow? When Allah is far greater than our parents at looking after our future and resolving our issues.

You need to remember
1. We were created to be tried
2. This world is transient
3. Allah rewards us based on our resolve in these situations.
4. Only the first hundred years are difficult for the believer. After that is eternal enjoyment.
5. Things change, but if they don’t be content.
Question:I am currently struggling so much with my faith. For 6 months I’ve had this voice enter my head telling me God doesn’t exist and my chances of being born into the right religion. I feel like everything has just been made up to explain human existence.This has been causing me a lot of anxiety to the point it’s impacting my university studies.

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: The voice in your head is the voice of ignorance and the voice of Shaitan.
How can it be possible that God doesn’t exist when even those that deny his existence.
1. Can’t prove that he doesn’t exist
2. Hate him intensely even though they believe that he doesn’t exist. Like hating the bogey man.
3. Give you ludicrous ideas about the existence of life.
It doesn’t matter if you are born into the right religion or not. What matters is when the truth is presented to you, that you don’t conceal it.
People that refuse to acknowledge God, do so to either avoid any obligation or so that they don’t credit the abilities they have to being a gift from God.

So does God exist?
According philosophical argument and logical deduction the only truth lies in their being a supreme force that caused all that exists. And this force according Biblical and Islamic texts is God.
