I am an imam in the US and I am facing problems with the community here because if I did something, some may like this way while others not. The community here follows different madhhabs and sects and some of them are very critical to everything that is different from the madhhab they follow. Please advice what can be done in this problematic situation?
I have a question regarding zakah on gold. For how many grams of gold zakah is payable and how many grams of it?
Thank you for your time answering our question.
My husband wants to send 20 thousand dollars to his father to finish building a house that will never be legally ours, but his uncles, and only through word is it ours. I have objected to this, and my husband has advised me that in Islam whatever his father requests of him, he must obey. This is unfair; as it rips away our hard earning money from our children's future, for something we will never legally own. Please advise, in Islam can his father make such requests from his son?
Can black magic prevent someone from getting married?
I’ve always thought the answer was no because alhamdulilah, I'm religious; I pray, read Qur'an, and make dua'a and didn’t think that it can affect me.
But everyone tells me that it has to be the reason that I'm not married because Allah has blessed me with beauty, intelligence, education, great personality, and a great reputation masha'Allah. However I'm 32 years old and still not married.
Salaam. I like this man but my parents won't consent because of status issues. I do not want to hurt them but I also cannot hurt the man I like for almost 2 yrs.
In Islam, we should not hurt or disappoint our parents. I am trying to convince them but what if they do not agree? I do not want to go against them but I know the man I like is a good man and is also Muslim. Please advice thanks.
Respected scholars, as-salamu `alaykum.
I am a Muslim youth and I proposed marriage to many women. Every time I propose to a woman, I find her wali (guardian) asks for a lot of money as her mahr (dowry) as well as asking me about my income and whether I have a flat and other things that I am unable to provide before marriage. I have a sufficient salary al-hamdu lillah but they ask for a lot of money. Is it correct to ask for a large amount of money as mahr and how can I deal with this situation?
Jazakum Allahu Khayran.
