s it allowed for the `aqîqah of my son for me to purchase two sheep that have already been slaughtered and distribute their meat? I live in a non-Islamic country, and in a block of flats where there really are no facilities to slaughter animals.

I am living here in the US doing Islamic work full-time I was born and raised here, and my parents live here. The amîr of the da'wah effort told us that we do not have to spend too much time with our parents or take care of our parents' needs like others must, because we are here for da'wah. Therefore, I do not spend a lot of time with my parents, just an hour or so at night, and I do very little for them. People in the community blame me and say my mother is unhappy with me. What should I do? ...

My father always asks for me to give him money. However, he spends most of it on drink and on pornography and on his friends who are just as bad as he is. I do not want to keep giving him money to squander on these people and their ugly activities. What can I do?

What is the correct way to name a newborn child? I understand that different cultures have different way of naming the child. For example in Arab culture, naming is different than in Pakistani culture. Back home, in Pakistan, when the child is born, he/she is given a name and then the father's first name (just first name) becomes the child’s last name. Is this the correct Islamic way, since we will be called by our first name and then our father’s name on the Day of Judgment?

What is the meaning of `Abd al-Bâsit? Al-Bâsit is not one of the so-called ninety-nine names of Allah, yet is gets the prefix `abd in some people’s names. I heard that this name is disliked by some scholars.

Is the first name "Noor" disliked in Islam? I heard that it is a name reserved for the Prophet (peace be upon him), but I could not find anything on the subject. I have a friend who chose that name as a Muslim name after she converted to Islam.

As Muslim converts, can we have an American name (i.e. John, Kelly) for our first name? And Can we call a person by his American name instead of his Muslim name? Is the ruling different if the name has religious significance in another religion, like the name Christina? What about middle names?

I read in a book on `aqiqah that we cannot name ourselves or our children with the following names of the Prophet: al-Mâhî, al-Hâshir, and al-`Aqib. Is this correct? What if one removes the definite article “al” from before these names? Would it then be permissible to name one’s child Mâhî, Hâshir, or `Aqib?

ver since this issue about the teddy bear named Muhammad has surfaced, I have grown concerned. I never thought about the issue like that before. I want to know what the ruling is. I have videos of "Adam's World" with a very fanciful looking puppet named Adam who teaches children about Islam. Is it right or wrong to name plush toys and puppets with the names of prophets? If not, should I dispose of these videos? Also, my daughter has named her plush toys with different names. She has a ...

My wife and I are expecting our first child. We would like to choose a name for our child ourselves, but both of us are under pressure from our parents who wish to dictate the matter to us. I am the firstborn son, and my father expects me to name my child after him. He believes this is an Islamic practice. Is this true? My wife's parents are adamantly against the name. First of all, in her culture, the wife's parents generally choose the name. Secondly, they say that my father's name is not suit ...

My father is over 70 years old. He used to live with me and my family until six months back. He had been with us since I got married four years ago. He has been separated from his wife - my mother - for six years due to his bad behavior. Six months ago he sexually harrassed my brother-in-law's wife at my home, offending her greatly. On another occasion, he did the same with my wife's cousin. In the end, my wife was deeply troubled and we came close to a separation. Now my feelings towards my fat ...
