Insufficient Purity: Menstruation Query

by

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?

Trying to do good, but find myself slipping. Seeking advice.

by

I honestly don’t know where to start. It’s been 2 years now that ive been a practicing muslimah alhamdulillah. I wasn’t always stable though…I had my ups and downs. I am engaged to a wonderful and pious man. So everything seemed to be alright…but now I feel like everything is collapsing.

Helping mother in-law in old age overcome her problems

by

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

by

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.

Discolored Discharge

by

A woman usually experiences discharge on a regular basis. When she has her haiz and when on the last days when her colour is no longer light red/pink, but she has yellow discharge little more than the normal discharge. She is confused as does she have to wait till the yellow also clears or will that be regarded as discharge?

Husband Socialising With Other Women

by

I am a revert to Islam, Alhamdulillah, I am married with two sons (6yrs and 4months old, Alhamdulillah). My husband is Muslim born and raised. I have found out through his phone texts that he’s been socializing with other women, Muslim and non-Muslim, calling them babes in his text and apparently helping one with a baby whose husband has left her.
