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.

   

Moody, Lazy Husband

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum 

We’ve been married for 11 years now, but we are always fighting. My husband is a very moody person who talks to me when he feels like. He could go for weeks being angry with me. Most of the time it’s such petty things. When I try speaking to him about it, it gets so heated & blown out of proportion. If he's wrong he will never apologise, instead he turns things around & makes it my fault. 

He’s also not had much luck with work. With me working, we’ve managed to get through this twice before. This is now the third time he’s lost his job and he’s sitting at home, not making much of an effort to find a job. He’s so moody, he doesn’t even speak to me. I feel that he demands too much from me. I am trying to see to the basics at home but I am barely coping. He makes me feel so guilty if I can’t give him money, like for petrol. He picks on my mum all the time and I can’t understand why.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

Respected Ulama

As the month of Muharram has dawned upon us once again, one notices that many Muslims engage in a lot of weird practices such as, for example: buying apples and preparing milkshake and going to a specific place (designated for this purpose) to offer ‘Muharram niaz’. They go there, offer the apples and milkshake and sometimes another type of sweet dish as well... and then make du‘aa. Some other strange practices are also engaged in. Many people also take vows during the year, with the intention that if they achieve their desire, they will go to this place in Muharram and offer niaz.

Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

As Salaamu ‘alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh

Respected Maulana,

I always felt very strongly against people visiting ‘aamils and becoming obsessed in following different treatments when it comes to them having jinn/sihr problems. I feel that the sunnah offers the perfect prescription, with the ‘Quls’ and other masnoon du‘aas. However, due to being affected by witchcraft by my in-laws, I too was encouraged to visit some ‘aamils and ended up going for different treatments and feel worse than when I started. Moreover, I was told that since my in-laws are the cause, I should keep away from them but I think this may hurt my husband’s feelings.

Would appreciate Maulana’s guidance please.
