After my father died, my mother observed the prescribed period of mourning for four moths and ten days. She avoided all adornment, remained at home, and adhered to all of the legal rulings that apply in her circumstances. When the prescribed period of mourning came to an end, I bought some gold jewelry to give to my mother as a gift and organized a party for her. I invited her family and close friends over slaughtered two sheep for the occasion. There was no free mixing of men and women or anyth ...

I would like to clarify whether certain things are actually Sunnah regarding food. I read in Sahîh al-Bukhârî that the Prophet (peace be upon him) did not eat thin bread and roasted sheep? Is it a prohibition? Also, is there a hadîth which states that the Prophet (peace be upon him) did not eat two consecutive meals in his whole life.

I was reading a book written by Ibn al-Jawzî, and I noticed that he used the phrase “peace be upon him/her” for `Alî and `A’ishah. I always thought that we could only say this for Allah’s Prophets and Messengers (peace be upon them). What is the correct ruling?

A person gave something to a friend, so his friend said to him "Jazâk-Allahu khayran." He replied "That's ok" Is there any violation of islamic Law here? Has any disbeilief occured? He says he just meant that he does not demand any thanks or praise for his actions. However, now he gets whisperings in his heart that by his saying "That's ok" in reply to that supplication, he is is refusing the reward from Allah.

When I am in the bathroom, I am not supposed to mention Allah's name. However, the bathroom is the place in the house where I have facilities for ghusl and wudû'. Also, when I am cleaning the bathroom, I often have to sneeze because of the detergents. Am I supposed to say "Al-Hamdulillah" when I sneeze?

However, the protracted stay of this guest though infringes on the family's privacy. Is there, in Islamic practice, any stated length of time one should offer to a guest who is in need of a place to stay? Or is it purely left to the good judgme ...

I understand that it is from Islamic etiquette to eat what is closest to us on a plate. Does this only apply to when one is eating from a platter with others or does it also apply when eating alone?

What is the ruling of serving food to someone with your left hand? Is it forbidden, disliked, or allowed? We had a situation at our mosque where an individual refused to eat food that was given to him because the server gave him the food with his left hand. In fact, this individual has said, in front of others, that he will refuse any food given to him by this server, because the server habitually offers things with the left
