Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I am a girl and I follow various males on twitter and there are lots that follow me. I don't speak to any of them but some post inspirational stuff while others just post something funny or interesting from time to time. Sometimes I retweet things from these various males.

My husband does not agree with this at all and always tells me he doesn't like me following men or them following me even though I don't speak to them.

My questions are:

1. Is it haraam for me to follow males and allow them to follow me? 

2. If my husband is unhappy about it, is it okay for me to still do so? 

3. Is my husband right for not wanting me to do that?

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

Where can I find an environment of Deen to live in? My imaan is so weak that I really need a Deeni environment to survive. Do you know of a good place that a Muslim can migrate to? Jazakallah

Was-Salaam

Etiquettes of the Host

1. When the guest arrives (and will be staying over), show him the toilet. In doing so, it will be easy for the guest to relieve himself if there is a need, without him needing to search for the host and enquire regarding the toilet.

2. If the guest arrives and is hungry, serve him whatever food is available or can be prepared quickly. Do not make the guest wait in hunger so that a lavish meal can be prepared.

3. The host should not force the guest to eat. This may harm the health and the well-being of the guest.

4. Do not stare at the guest while he is eating, or take note of and remark on the amount of food that he is eating. This will embarrass the guest and cause him to feel uncomfortable.

Masturbation Addiction

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I am addicted to masturbation from a very young age, but I only learned that it’s prohibited in Islam and is a major sin two years ago! I have been trying so hard to stop but I can’t. I need proper guidance and advice on how I should leave it. Also, when I stop the urge, which is now limited to every weekend, I feel so depressed that I become rebellious and irritated with people around me.

I haven’t spoken about this to anyone yet. Please help me. I’m dying in this pit alone!

Jazakallah khair

Etiquettes of the Guest

1. If the guest will not be partaking of meals, he should inform the host in advance. If he does not do this, the host will prepare meals and thereafter be disappointed when the guest does not eat. Obviously, this causes great inconvenience to the host.

2. If the guest is going anywhere, he should first inform the host.

3. The guest should not accept an invitation for any meal without first asking the permission of the host.

4. The guest should not interfere in the household affairs and matters of the host.

5. If the guest needs to make a request for anything, he should do so with respect and humility. He should never be demanding and rude.

6. If the guest has any special dietary requirements (e.g. he is on a strict diet and cannot eat certain foods) then he should inform the host in advance so that the preparations can be made accordingly. He should not wait for the meal to be served and thereafter inform the host of his diet.

7. The guest should not place a request before the host that will put the host through difficulty. Hence, the guest should be considerate and thoughtful before making any request.

8. The guest should not take uninvited people with him to the home of the host.

9. If several varieties of food or dishes are served then the guest should partake of a little from each dish.
