Question:When the word «sodomy» is used in islamic context what does it refer to? For example in the case when Imam Ali (as) was describing the condition Imam Mehdi aj will impose on his companions, one thing mentioned is: «You shall not commit sodomy, drink wine and do misappropriation with Imamate and guidance.» What is meant with sodomy? When searching up the word it gives the definition: «Sodomy (/ˈsɒdəmi/) or buggery (British English) is generally anal or oral sex». But can that really be the case? Because oral sex is allowed, and anal sex as well with ones wifes permission.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Sodomy is usually anal sex. However I would require the reference to the narration if you want me to investigate it further.
Question:1) I remember hearing in a lecture once that it was said by Imam Jafar Sadiq (as) each of the prophets had a portion of Allahs knowledge, and gave examples such as Isa (as) had this much, Nuh (as) had this much, Ibrahim (as) had so and so and kept going up in number. Until he named Rasolullah (saw) and Imam Amir al-mu’minin (as), who had 72 out of 73 portions of Allahs knowledge. Is this a true hadith or a known hadith at all? If so where can I find it?

2) Is it true that both Salman al farsi (as) and Abu Dharr al ghafari (as) where both part of the ahlul bayt, as I have read certain narrations that both Imam Ali (as) and Rasolullah (saw) has stated that they are part of the ahlul bayt?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1) Allah’s knowledge can not be quantified. What we have in our narrations is that each prophet had portions of the 73 letters of Allah’s grand name.

2) Yes I have heard the narration that Salman is from us Ahlul Bayt. But I have not heard this about Abu Thar, but I would not find it improbable to be the case.
Question:Should I marry an adulterer girl who has repented?
I may face a lot of taunts from the society about her previous illicit relationship and every other highlighted sin that may result in humiliation for me.
At the same time I also think that if I dont marry her, will anyone else accept her as In the society (in which I live) I feel it will be really hard to accept a girl with such kind of past."

Ayatollah:Khamenei

Answer: If she has repented, then there really is no problem with it.
Question:Can our duas change our destiny if Allah SWT accepts them?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: Dua can change anything, today we commemorate the martyrdom of the sixth Imam (as) and Mansour al Dawaniqi made several attempts on the life of the Imam, and through dua, the Imam was able to be saved all these times from the evil of Mansour.
Question:Are "Shia" sects like Nusayris (Alawites), Imamis, Ismailies Muslims? They have quite extreme beliefs in my opinion and in the opinion of others.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: If they believe in Allah and his Messenger and the Quran. Then they are Muslim apparently.
Question:Is it true if we are 100% certain that someone is a magician or is involved in magic that we are permitted islamically to kill them without punishment?


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No you may not kill anyone. Otherwise people will take the law into their own hands and we would live in an anarchist society.
Murder is forbidden.
Question:1) What is the ruling for a non mahram man seeing a women’s ultrasonic (like the X-ray image) is it haram?

2) Besides a medical professional it would be haram? Not the procedure just showing the picture

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: 1) As in a medical professional for medical purposes, it is permissible.

2) No, I don’t see how it’s forbidden, unless of course it is showing clear imagery.
Question:I wanted to ask while prostration (sajdah) in prayers eyes should be closed or open?

Ayatollah:N/A

Answer: Open
Question:Is it true that the Imams can forgive you for yours sins? And if so, will I be taken out of the fold of shiism if I don’t believe in this?


Ayatollah:Fadlallah

Answer: Allah is the only one who forgives sin, the Imam intercedes for you to get you forgiveness.
Question:I have a problem that I think too much about my past and I am scared that people from my past still think about me or think badly about me. I am scared of getting involved with anything that involves them, even though Alhamdulillah I have repented. I’m just always so scared and I want to stop thinking about it but its also good because you never stop asking for forgiveness from Allah but i just get in this depressing episode when I do and it makes me really tired.


Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Once a man came to see the 8th Imam (as) and he heard people talking about his past. So he wept bitterly and said to the Imam, I’ve changed my ways and yet they still speak ill off me.
The Imam (as) responded: does it not suffice you, that I am pleased with you?

You don’t need to please the haters, haters are going to hate.
You only need to please your lord, avoid the ignorant and keep the company of the righteous.

May Allah give you support and change your image in the eyes of the people to a righteous image.
