Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum. I want to ask whether it is allowed for women to look at Islamic scholars giving speeches, or to look at vegetable vendors while buying vegetables, or the newsreader who is reading the news, or a political leader on TV giving speeches. I asked many people; some told me it is permissible unless the person has evil thoughts. Others told me it is not permissible if the man is handsome but allowed if he is not. Some say it is not allowed to watch anyone. However, I wondered how we would be able to identify anyone if we did not look at people. I want to know what is right as it is really distressing. Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum can I wear makeup in a very modest way with hijab in public?
As-salamu `alaykum, I am a non-Muslim US woman, baptized as a Christian. I was divorced from a Sunni Muslim Jordanian-American man. the divorce was his choice; he is younger, and he decided that he wanted children a few years after marriage, and I was unable due to my age. Now I would potentially be interested in marrying my ex-husband's uncle. he is a single, practicing Sunni Muslim living in Jordan and is about my age. Is this permissible in some way according to the law of the Qur'an or would it be haram for him? Does it make a difference that I am not a Muslim and my former marriage was civil (not held in a religious ceremony)? Jazakum Allahu khayran
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
