I heard some respectable Muslims say that it is not necessary for Muslim women to cover their heads and that there is nothing in the Qur'an that require them to do so. Can you comment?
The Qur'an and Hadith contain sample proofs to show that covering the head is part of the Islamic dress code for women.
Very often when I stand up to pray, I experience doubts in my mind as to whether my purification or Wudhu is nullified or not. What should I do in such a situation: Should I leave the Salah and purify myself and then resume my Salah, or should I simply continue in my Salah and not bother about such doubts?
Offering udhiyah (sacrifice) during `Eid Al-Adha is regarded as wajib or mandatory according to Imam Abu Hanifah and as sunnah mu'akkadah or confirmed Sunnah according to other jurists.
All those people who have the nisab (payable amount) of zakah should offer a sacrifice. The time for offering a sacrifice begins after the `Eid Al-Adha prayer.
The first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah have been singled out especially for great merits and excellences like no other days in the Islamic calendar. Allah in His infinite wisdom and mercy has chosen to dispense infinite spiritual blessing and rewards. Thanks to the high status these days enjoy, Allah has made them worthy of making an oath by them, when He says (By the Daybreak, by the Ten Nights) (Al-Fajr 89:1–2).
According to some Qur’an commentators or mufassirun, the ten nights mentioned here are none other than the first ten nights of Dhul-Hijjah; others, however, hold the view that these nights specifically refer to the last ten nights of Ramadan.
Dear sheikh Assalamu alaikum,
My Husband is a doctor. There are a lot of pharmaceutical companies that offer certain gifts in the form of household appliances, sponsor air tickets or lavish dinner parties and sometimes cheques. In return, they would want the doctor to prescribe their brand of medicines to their patients. I would like to know if it is permissible in Islam to accept such gifts.
Asalam alikum wa rahmato Allah
My question is in the most critical issue facing all Muslims in all Muslim countries, which is the banks and Islamic banks? Please, state the detailed difference between them and give us a perfect start answer, whether to deal with the Islamic ones or not?

Is taking a shower the same thing as making wudhu? I have been told that taking a shower only does not substitute for wudhu in the Hanafi School of Jurisprudence. Therefore, a person must make wudhu separately and if he does not do so, his salah is not valid. Is this true?
