Dear scholar, Assalam o alaikum, my question is that our house is combined, consisting of 3 brothers, their wives, and children. I am wondering if it is ok islamically for me that my brother in laws and my sister in laws' husbands and my husband's other male relatives and his adult nephews to see me. Also, is it ok for my husband to see his sister in laws and my sister in laws, and his other female relatives besides. My other question is islamically if combined living is allowed in which case, all of the above is happening or if it is not ok, As a result we are wondering if we should move to our own separate house.After whatever I read in this website says to me that all adult male should not see me and I should not see them and the same is the case for my husband not to see any woman he could potentially marry and also after marriage one should have his own house so they can practice their life freely regarding purdah, which is not practically possibly for me or my husband living in a combined family because their relatives are coming and purdah is not practical for me or my husband.Please advise us on their situation as it is a matter of grave concern. Thank you in advance for your respected wisdom and this website.
Assalamualaikum Shaikh,I want to inquire you about the hand shaking with womens in non-muslim culture. Is it permissible in Islam to do Hand Shaking of men and women similar to Hand shaking between two mens as we normally do. 1. Some time practicing muslims are shaking hands with womens in front of public on the occasion of gatherin gs, meetings and conferences. I currently live in Canada which is predominently a non-muslim state here they have their own cultural customs and practices. As per their culture shaking hands, hugging and kissing of opposite sex is absolutely right specially at happy and sad occasions. 2. Can a man do hand shaking to women with the sole intention of dawah. As this kind of gesture and action can create a soft corner into a heart of non-muslim. If its allowed then does it incompliance to sunnah of Prophet SAS?. 3. Some brothers and sisters has this opinion here that we should not leave an impression of alianation into the hearts of local non muslims by not doing hand shaking or not wearing the cloths with their national symbols flags etc. Else they would hate us and we will not be able to talk to them about Islam. 4. Most of known dawah groups in middle east and asia when they come to North America they change their policies drastically as compared to back home, as per them just for the sake of Dawah.I know my questions are little bit tough but need an straight forward and Shariah based reply. No diplomatic answer please. Please give a sharia opinion with support of Quran and true Ahadith.Jazakallah KhairMohammed Fazil Ali
As Mahram relatives are those relatives whom you can?t marry. Although, it seems not very sensible question. But I want to know as in this world, Mahram relatives CAN NOT come into nikah of anyone even in Paradise (jannah?)? Please explain. No woman could come into Nikah of any Mahram relatives. I know the General ruling about wives in Jannah. But what if any Mahram woman dies bachelor or something. I actually want to know who have become your aunts and uncles, nephews and nieces in this world, are permanently your Mahram even in Jannah, relatively talking about. I?m very Sorry again to ask such thing. Just a 21st century thought appeared in mind so I thought it is good to discuss and become relax rather than thinking yourself and concludes things. Sorry.I want to know it is no problem if females are wearing such shirts/kameez that their bra bands and shoulderstraps are visible in front of Mahram at homes? There is no problem if CHEMISE is visible, then what about bra? It is just a cloth and designed for females. But I think it is sort of and at times very sensual so even in front of Mahrams, it should not be visible easily! Please explain?
Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. I am married and I am confused about something. Is the husband of my wife's sister a mahram (husband or close male relative forbidden in marriage) to my wife or a non-mahram? Can my wife talk to him alone in seclusion or must she cover her `awrah (parts of the body that must be covered) in front of him? Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
Salam. At what age does a grown woman have to start covering in front of her nephews by marriage. I am 25, married with kids, and have severeal young boy nephews right around the age of puberty. 13, 11 14. THey come over all the time to swim and i am wondering when do i determine that wearing hijab is fard. Is it at the age of knowledge or the actual reaching of puberty or when they start changing? and how would i determine . also what about a younger girl who has reached puberty for a while 15 or 16. but who is only 2 to three yrs older than the still young boy. wqould she have to cover because the age difference is so small or is it the same rule for me since islamically she is considered an adult. thank you for your clarification! wassalam
is my husband a mahram to his brother's wife because she is also his maternal cousin and therefore they have a very frank relationship. does being his cousin allow her to interfere in me and my husband's conversations, or cook for him whether i am there or not, suggest him what to wear and what not to wear and always ask about his whereabouts.. jazakallah for your help
