I am a young woman, thirty years old. My problem is that I hate my father vehemently and I cannot even listen to any news of him. My father transgressed against my rights and the rights of my mother and siblings. He left me when I was small, eight ye ...

Can a man kiss his adult sisters and daughters – and can a woman kiss her adult brothers and sons – out of affection when there is no threat of temptation?

One of my sons has special educational needs requiring me to enroll him in a private school costing $8000 dollars per year. My other children go to public school. Is this unjust? Do I have to spend the same amount of money for each child or put that amount away for each one of them for use in the future? This would be very burdensome on me.

I was born a Muslim. I am married to a Roman Catholic woman according to both Muslim and Christian rites. We have a son, but he is following Christianity. I feel guilty about my son following Christianity. At this juncture, it is very difficulty to make him understand as he is grown up and he is 16 years of age. Kindly let me know whether Islamic Law agrees to our way of living.

Does Islam look with disfavor upon a child born of fornication or adultery – an illegitimate child? I heard that there is a hadîth to the effect that such a child is disfavored? Is this true?

I am strict regarding what my pre-teen children see on television and online. I do not give them access to television at all. When I believe that a program or a video will be beneficial to them, then I let them watch it. Otherwise, it is off-limits. The same goes for the Internet. Some of my friends have advised me that my approach is wrong. They say that, instead of forbidding them from using these media, I should teach my children how to avoid what is unlawful and instill in them the values an ...

can understand that the raising up of a child so that he or she grows up to be a good Moslem is essentially the responsibility of the parents. Allah will take account of what the parents did to make their child into a good Muslim. However, a lot of children refuse to obey their parents when they reach puberty. Even the best parents have no control over their children when those children become legally adults. However, people have told me that on the Day of Judgment, parents will be held account ...

Every day when my school-age sisters speak together about what happened to them in school that day, their little brother always comes over and contributes to the conversation. His is not even in preschool yet, but he tells all kinds of tales about what happened that day at his sisters' school. These tales are fantastic and have no truth in them whatsoever. What should I do about my little brother's habit of telling lies?

My mother-in-law is a Muslim by birth but she has never practised. My husband has never had much of a relationship with her, because of her bad character, but he has not broken his ties with her. I have looked after her, but she puts a lot of pressure on me and I do not like what she says to my children and the un-Islamic things they see in her home. She has other family, but they do nothing for her. Would I be sinful in taking a step back and allowing someone else to take care of her? I have be ...

Half of my maternal aunts and uncles - those that have been in the UK since a very young age without much exposure to practical Islam - are very westernised, and some have a very modernist approach to Islam. They still call themselves Muslims, and some will pray Jumu`ah or pray and fast in Ramadan, but in general, they are very far from Islam. I see that there is hope for them to become better Muslims. The problem is that my father does not like us meeting them at all, and he detests them. My fa ...

Great emphasis has been laid on our maintaining close ties with our relatives. Can you please advise me on who is included in this? Is this just for people like our parents and our brothers and sisters? Does it include our uncles and aunts or our cousins? How far back does it go?
