My husband has forbidden me to speak to our 21 year old daughter because she told us she was not Muslim. I dont want to go against him I just want to know if he is correct.

I want to ask: is it permissible for a father to hug or embrace his daughter who has reached the age of twenty-three years. What I mean by embracing and hugging is not sitting in his lap. I swear by Allah that I did not remember my father ever hugging me and I am in a psychological state that no one knows except Allah.

One of my female friends wants to marry a young man whose parents died last year. This young man was their adopted son and his adoptive father gave him his name. He tried to find his real parents but with no success, because now he is thirty-one years old. My question is: if his name or family name is that of his adoptive father, will the marriage contract in that name be valid?

My sister's son came to live with me after living with his father, and I agreed to that on condition that he send me a monthly sum of 500 riyals. After a while he stopped sending the money and claimed that his son was not doing anything good for him because he was so far away from him, and that we should meet all his needs of food, drink, clothing, marriage, a car and so on. His father refused to send his son's medical file for him to receive treatment at the expense of the company for which he ...

I have a mother and siblings through breastfeeding (radaa'ah). Do I have to uphold ties with them and visit them as I visit my mother and siblings through blood ties? I used to visit them, then it was said to me that I do not have to do that, and I am confused about that.

My brother married a woman who suffers from retinal atrophy, and he did not know anything about her sickness until two months ago. All he knew was that her vision was weak, and he got married to her. Now he is wondering whether he should separate from her because he feels that she will not be able to raise his children properly if she has children. He is always arguing with her mother because she speaks badly to him and he thinks that she bewitched him to make him marry her daughter. Now he ca ...

I am very confused about the subject of free mixing, and have been reading the fatwas regarding this subject on your website. In my opinion, and I could be wrong, there is a contradiction between fatwa 79549, stating that it is not permissible for a man to teach girls without a barrier, and fatwa 113431, stating that it is permissible for a girl to remain at a mixed university because of her social situation . Where I live, in Morocco, free mixing is normal during family gatherings and even w ...

My wife was pregnant, and at four months and three weeks of pregnancy the foetus died in his mother's womb. What should we do? Should he be named and the ‘aqeeqah sacrificed for him? If anything else needs to be done, I hope that you can help us with that. May Allaah reward you with good.

I breastfed my sister's daughter with my sister's agreement, and she breastfed my son at the same age, but that was without my husband's knowledge, because I did not feel that there was anything wrong with that. I breastfed my sister's daughter four times and my sister breastfed my son five times, because we wanted them to be siblings and to mix with one another with no reservation. When my husband found out about that, he told me that it is haraam, because we do not have any knowledge of the un ...

I work in one of the Gulf countries and my wife lives in one of the countries of East Asia. I had doubts about my wife and thought that she was having relationships with men in my absence. Hence I got in touch with her under a different name and she started talking to me believing that I was a different person. During these conversations I discussed very private matters with her and I even tried to make her commit some sins. In the end I found out from these conversations that she was innocent a ...

I want to know your opinion on something -- may Allah reward you with good and make Paradise your abode. My husband is a very pious man, and I am trying to strengthen my commitment to Islam and I am trying to cover myself properly. We agreed that the niqaab is fard (obligatory) outside the house. My husband thinks that the highest level of faith is to wear hijab at home! He thinks that this will bring more barakah (blessing) to the home. He is suggesting (but he is not forcing me to do anything, ...

I am young muslim woman who has 3 children and a good husband. I try my best to adhere to Islam as best as I can for fear of Allah in this world and in the hereafter. I just recently stopped many of the haram actions myself (like drinking alcohol) and am trying to stick with a religious life. My husband, despite him being a good husband, drinks alcohol. He drinks almost every other day and sometimes goes out and stays out till one or two in the morning. This makes me very angry and I have a hard ...

I have a son who is ten years old, and he is supposed to go to secondary school, but the school system is affected by many kinds of corruption. Is it better for him to study at home (homeschooling), even though the level of teaching may not be high, or should I let him go to the secondary school and be exposed to corruption?
