Assalamu 'alaikum, my question is regarding the medical procedure that can be performed to choose the gender of a child. If someone has only daughters and wants a son, or vice versa, is it halal to use this procedure or would it be considered a clear transgression and haram. Jazak Allah.
Dear scholars, as-Salamu `alaykum. I am a Muslim student and I would like your advice/opinion on careers that you believe are in demand and will be beneficial for the Muslim Ummah. I would also like to know the exact role of an Imam, and how they can earn a living to sustain themselves? Also, is it usual that a Muslim for example, would be an engineer as his primary job, and also give Islamic lectures and learn about Islam in his free time. Also, are all Islamic lecturers, Imams, etc., only studying Qur’an and Sunnah full time without any other job or career? Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear Sheikh, please, I'd like to know the basis upon which a Muslim female chooses a life partner, since having some sort of intimate pre-marital relationship with boys is forbidden in Islam. How would she make a perfect choice among hundreds of proposals she has? Please give me a convincing answer to face my non-Muslim friends who find it amazing that having boyfriends & girlfriends is unlawful in Islam.
