I would like to know whether there is a ruling on going to malls and stores for fun and leisure, especially for women. I heard that there is a curse on it, so I’d like to know more about that. Your answer is greatly appreciated.

Why does Islam stipulate that the blood money paid when the victim is a woman to be half the amount paid when it is a man? Is that a kind of belittling of women? Does this not contradict the Islamic principle of honoring women? The enemies of Islam raise such questions, and, in fact, we also do so, but to seek the truth in that regard, not to harbor doubts about the intentions of Islam. How can we refute such false claims about Islam? And what do you say to reassure us concerning that?

Dear scholars, As-Salamu `alaykum. I have been wearing hijab for five years. It was my choice, but my confidence and self esteem have been entirely shattered because of it. I am enraged at the fact that the scholars (mainly men) have been threatening Muslim women into believing that Allah has ordered them to cover their hair. The truth is that these scholars (mostly men) have decided that women must cover their hair in order to divert the desires of men, labeling such a ruling as a commandment of Allah. In Qur'anic verses Allah specifically tells women to cover their bosoms. Did Allah forget to mention hair? Jazakum Allah khayran.

In the book Nahj Al-Balaghah or (The Way to Eloquence), it is stated that the Commander of the Faithful `Ali ibn Abi Talib (may Allah be pleased with him) said, “Woman is an absolute evil, and the worst aspect in her is that she is indispensable!” I would like to know what is your opinion concerning this saying. Does this saying represent the Islamic position regarding woman?

As-Salamu `alaykum! I have some urgent questions concerning divorce. I have been separated from my husband for 8 months. I asked for divorce and finally he has agreed to give me that. Do I have to wait for 3 months if I want to marry someone else? I have not been touched by him for the 8 months.
