As-salamu `alaykum. How can we balance between loving our kids and disciplining them? What are the best discipline strategies in the West?
Dear scholars, As-salamu `alaykum. My dad has a store. He gives us money when he fells like it. But once he told us that we can take some money when we need it. So now whenever we go to store we take $5 or $10; would this be considered a sin or stealing on our part if we did so? Jazaka Allahu khayran.
As-Salam `Alaykum, I have a question which is somehow strange. What does Islam say about the case of a brother marrying his sister unknowingly and there are children, who happen to be the product of this marriage?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. Is it allowed in Islam to use contraception (family planning) for the first couple of years of marriage just for the sake of the husband and wife enjoying each other and not being willing to take on the responsibility of raising kids. Please answer me in both of these cases: 1. if both husband and wife agree to do so; 2. if husband does not agree, and he wants to have children without any wait. Jazakum Allah khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. My question is how many times can a wife go to her parents’ house in a week and what is the say of husband in this matter? Thank you.
What is the Islamic view on extended family system? What did the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) mention regarding this? Should brothers stick together after the death of their parents, even if they don’t want to; and if parents are alive do they still have to stay together even if they agree to take the responsibility of the parents?
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I was told by one of my relatives that it is a part of Islam, not just a part of culture, that when you want to get married, first you should look within your family. Then if there is no one suitable from among your near relatives, you should look to your distant relatives, and if not then within your community, and if not your community then within your race, and finally if this is not possible then within your religion. I understand everything from the community and on, but I was wondering if it is necessary to look within the family first? Jazakum Allah khayran.
