Money Matters

1. It is important that the owner of every item in the home be clearly identified and recorded. Exactly what belongs to the husband should be known and exactly what belongs to the wife should likewise be known. If it is not specified and recorded, winding up the estate in the event of one of the spouses passing away will become very difficult and complicated. Nobody will be able to identify the belongings of the deceased partner with certainty.

2. It is not permissible to use the next person’s belongings without their consent and happiness. Failing to specify who the owners of various items are often leads to these items being used without the owner’s permission, thus causing the user to fall into sin.

3. It is important to know that the money which the husband gives to his wife for the running of the home does not belong to her but is rather a trust which should only be used for household expenses. Over and above this, the husband should, on a monthly basis, give his wife some money (based on his income) which she may spend on her personal needs etc.

4. It is advisable for the wife to consult her husband even when spending her personal money. This will increase the unity in their marriage.

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

I have someone very special in my life and he is everything that I have asked Allah Ta‘ala for. I have read istikhaarah and it was positive. He has also read but hasn’t got an answer. However, he feels very positive. The thing is his parents do not want to accept me. I do not want him to choose his parents over me.

Since we are happy with one another, how do we work around this situation? He does not want to go against his parents’ wishes and I respect that, but I am left at the end of a bridge with nowhere to go.

Last Updated on Tuesday, 24 November 2015 13:56

Q: Does breastfeeding break one’s wudhu?

A: No, the wudhu does not break through breastfeeding.

Q: Is it necessary to remove make-up, nail polish, etc. before making wudhu?

A: If the make-up, nail polish, etc. is non-porous (which is the general case with most cosmetics), it will be necessary to remove it before making wudhu.

Note: Make-up which contains impure substances or causes one to resemble the disbelievers cannot be applied.

Q: Will my salaah be valid if, instead of washing my feet in wudhu, I make masah on my ordinary cotton socks?

A: All four Imaams of fiqh unanimously agree that masah made on ordinary cotton socks is invalid. If the masah is invalid, the wudhu will be incomplete and if the wudhu is incomplete, the salaah will also be invalid.

Q: Is it necessary to wash the elbow in wudhu?

A: It is fardh to wash the elbow in wudhu. If even a portion of the elbow is left dry, the wudhu will be incomplete.
