Thanks farhan السؤال: هذا الشخص الأسترالي متزوج منذ عامين وزوجته مغربية وهي لا تزال محجور في المغرب بسبب مرض الكوفيد، فإنه يسأل ماذا يفعل في هذا الوضع؟ (يبدو أنه يسأل عن الطلاق أو تعدد الزوجات لنفسه ولكن ليس واضحا فالأفضل عدم الجواب حتى يتضح) فالجواب:  وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته، بارك الله فيك وزادك فقهًا في دينك. سؤالك غير واضح .لقد طلبت منا أن ننصحك بما يجب عليك فعله في وضعك لكن هذا ليس سؤالا فقهيا. يرجى إعادة إرسال سؤالك مع استفسارك الفقهي إذا كان هناك سؤال. والله أعلم.

Every year I paid Zakath for Gold ( I have more 85 gram) I have saving cash dirham, 8,000 (Do i need pay zakaht, or no need) Please explain?
All Praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all the Worlds and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and all his Family and Companions. Dear Brother, May Allah bless you. In order for zakat to be due on your cash wealth, two conditions must be met:  1 - That the cash reaches the nisaab (minimum threshold) 2 - That one lunar year has passed since it reaches the nisaab.  If the money is less than the nisab, then no zakat is due on it. If it reaches the nisab, and one lunar year has passed since the time it reached the nisab, then zakat becomes due at that point. The nisab is the equivalent of 85 grams of gold or 595 grams of silver. The rate that must be paid for zakat is 1/40th of your cash (2.5%).  If you have other non-financial assets or debt they will need to be calculated as well. And Allah knows best.

Was Abdullah (the son of Abdul Muttalib of Kuraish family) the actual father of the Prophet (PBUH) ?  
Certainly, Abdullah bin Abd al-Muttalib is the actual father of the Prophet ﷺ and this was well known to Quraysh. The evidence is from Sahih Al-Bukhari: - When Suhail bin Amr came to write the treaty of peace in Al-Hudaybiyah, he said, "Write a book between us and you" . So, the Prophet (ﷺ) called the clerk and said to him, "Write: By the Name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful." Suhail objected and said, "As for 'Beneficent,' by Allah, I do not know what it means. So write: By Your Name O Allah", The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Write: By Your Name O Allah". Then He dictated, "This is the peace treaty which Muhammad, Allah's Messenger has concluded." Suhail objected and said, "By Allah, if we knew that you are Allah's Messenger we would not prevent you from visiting the Ka`ba, and would not fight you. So, write: "Muhammad bin `Abdullah." The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "By Allah! I am Apostle of Allah even if you people do not believe me. Write: Muhammad bin `Abdullah". This proves that the lineage of the Prophet was well known, and that He was the son of Abdullah, and Quraysh had no doubt about that. - In the dialogue that took place between Hercules and Abu Sufyan, the first question Hercules asked about the lineage of the Prophet, and Abu Sufyan's answer was "He is of noble lineage", and Abu Sufyan was not a Muslim at the time, and if there had been any doubt about the Prophet's lineage, Abu Sufyan would not have wasted the opportunity to question the truth of the Prophet's lineage, but he did not do so for fear of being accused of lying.

My daughter is now 3+ years old. Her aqiqa sacrifice is still pending. Can we still sacrifice one goat with the niyah of her aqiqa? Is there a penalty for delaying for so long? How can we make amends? Thank you  
All Praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of all the Worlds and may His peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and all his Family and Companions. We ask Allah, the All Capable, that He always guide you and fill your life with all manners of grace and increase. Dear Questioner, Please note, the ‘Aqiqa' is a recommended Sunnah based on the hadeeth narrated from Samurh bin Jundab wherein the Messenger of Allah said: "Every boy is in pledge for his 'Aqiqa', so slaughter (the animal) for him on the seventh day, and shave his head, and give him a name" Its being a recommended Sunnah is the school of Imam Malik and the majority of scholars. Given the circumstances, if you have to delay the Aqiqa after the seventh day, then there is a dispensation due to the extreme conditions, so you can do it thereafter. Ideally this should be within the second week, or the third week, then if even if this is difficult, then it is permissible to do it anytime thereafter when things are made easy. This is the opinion of some of the scholars who say that the time of the Aqiqa is not limited by the seven days, and this is the opinion of the Shafi school of jurisprudence (madhab) and is accepted amongst them. So you can do the Aqiqah now and do not have do expiation. And Allah knows best. Thanks.

I have question regarding husband and wife rights. Doesn't husband have rights to check Wife data. Special Mobile data. Is there husband have rights to know whom she is contact specially when you have doubt on something for clarity. If husband have requested multiple time to clear it. What islamic teachings says about it.
In the name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the One Who gives Mercy. Peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah. Dear Questioner, May Allah guide you to all good. The believer should think positively of their fellow Muslim and should assume the best, and interpret affairs in a good way, and should keep away from suspicion and negative thinking for which there is no basis, because Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning): O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin. And do not spy or backbite each other. [al-Hujuraat: 49:12]. Based on this, the basic principle is that it is not permissible for a husband under ordinary circumstances to check on his wife's cell phone or laptop, because this conduct implies doubt and suspicion, and it may sour the relationship between the spouses in a manner that may be difficult to put right afterwards. Based on this: It is not permissible for a husband to spy and check his wife's private conversation on her phone or elsewhere. Because such behavior implies doubt and suspicion and we already mentioned how such doubt if forbidden. To do such things with one's wife and family may corrupt their relationship and trust and make things hard to be rectified. That said, it is necessary for the husband to be avid for his wife's welfare, he should advise her and serve her. If he sees mistakes he should try and advise her with gentleness and respect and not hasten to broadcast and reveal her wrongs amidst people, diminishing her rank in their eyes. Every human being makes mistakes, we all have faults, so if he sees something displeasing, he should seek to rectify the matter in a hasteful, private way and with mercy, that aids her in never returning. Thank you and Allah knows best.

Can we use fake eyelashes?
Thank you for your question. It is permissible for a woman wear fake eyelashes during the time she is not praying and after taking ablution (wudu'). If she wants to take wudu' or perform a full purificatory bath, then she must remove these fake eyelashes because they prevent the water from reaching the skin of the eyelids when purifying oneself. Ibn al-Ghazi says in Shifa' al-Ghalil fi Hall Muqfal Khalil, when the latter says: "other than the ring is removed" [every obstructing substance other than a ring is to be removed and taken off whether on the hand or (parts of the body) other than the hand ... and that which women beautify their faces and hands with in terms of making small specks/spots that has corporeality (physical body) or what they increase their hair with in term of strands and threads and what is applied to the hair in terms of henna and asafetida, etc. which have corporeality (physical body) or are attached to the nail, forearm, etc. in terms of dough/putty, tar (pitch), wax, etc. ], and Allah knows best.

Listening to the Quran has tremendous Baraka. However, in some houses, people listen to Islamic lectures or Qirat on TV/cell phones/tablets at high volume, in the background, and keep on doing the household chores. Even if others are offering prayers or students are studying they do not switch it off or lower the volume. Sir, what are the etiquettes and instructions for listening to the Quran in loud volume, when others are doing their work? Particularly because of Covid lot of people are doing work from home and students are studying online; they get distracted because of loud qirat onTV.
Thank you for your question   It is recommended that the person opening the radio or television for Qur'an recitation that he listens to it, and if he gets distracted or preoccupied that he returns to listening to it and giving it his attention. It is permissible to play the recitation of the Holy Qur'an in the house or at and during work for obtaining blessings. It is among the things that a person gets rewarded for as long as it does not cause disturbance and inconvenience for others nor does it cause underperformance and negligence in his work. Should it cause disturbance and inconvenience for others particular the neighbours and students studying online, then he should lower the volume or use earphones or headphones, or should it cause underperformance and negligence in his work then he should delay listening to it until after work hours. It is also important that people's rights and feelings be taken into consideration especially the neighbours and students who are the future generation and the hope of the people and particularly during times of calamities and pandemics. We ask Allah to remove from us calamities and pandemics and take away from the Ummah hardship and difficulty, for He has power over everything, and Allah knows best.

Some people do not promptly reply to your question when joined in the conversation. They take considerable time to answer back. Once it is pointed out to them that it is bad manners not to reply immediately, they say that they were reciting the Quran in the heart. Can a man recite Quran when engaged in conversation? Vice versa while reciting the Quran in the heart can he engage in conversation, and reply to a question? Particularly when a man asking the question does not know that another individual is reciting Quran.
Thanks for contacting us,  One of the characteristics of a Muslim is politeness and courteousness in speaking, including that when talking to someone, to listen well to him, and to make sure not to hurt his feelings in any way. The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said: "When you are three, two should not converse (privately) to the exclusion of their companion, because that makes him sad."  (Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim). We can deduce from the above that it is not courteous to recite Quran when engaged in conversation, or vice versa to engage in conversation while reciting the Quran in the heart, because that makes the other person sad. Also, the reader of the Qur'an should be mindful to understand what he is reading.
