Insufficient Purity: Menstruation Query
June 7, 2013 | No Comment

I have a problem… In the month of May I started on 8th and finished on 14th. In May I started 28th which means that there wasn’t a 15 day gap of Purity. This means that i am in istihadha. However, I do not know what I have to do. Does this mean i can pray as long as I do my wudhu for each prayer for all the 7 days that I am on for?

Helping mother in-law in old age overcome her problems

My mother in law is a 70 years old lady, she has no medical problems, all her children are wealthy, educated and married, she currently lives with one of her sons and literally travels the world every three to four times a year. She does a lot around the house and is very active, but over the past 6 to 7 years she has been gossiping, and very negative about everything around her. She changes every positive into a negative. It has come to the point that it is causing stress in our relationship as everything we do seems we haven’t done anything. At her age it is hard to explain to her how to be more appreciatve and thankful to the blessings she has. Is there any hadith or duas to help her understand the positives in her life?

Reverting to my niqab and steadfastness

I use to wear a niqaab from 2005. I took it off in 2009 and that was the biggest mistake I ever made. I have never took my abaya and hijab off but recently i am craving to wear my niqab again as i know it will protect me from a lot of things. Even with my loose abaya and hijab i have men staring…and i don’t want anyone looking at me. I am married. I fear Allah .. My family will laugh and say for how long now? Can you please advise me.

Is Niqab Established in Islamic Law or is it Merely a Cultural Practice?

I have recently started wearing hijab, however, i am now being introduced to many different forms of it. Personally, I wear loose
fitting and covering clothing, with a scarf wrapped around my head, so as only my hands and face are showing. However, I have been told by
some that the niqab/face veil is the right way to cover oneself.
