Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)


Respected Maulana, I have a question regarding Facebook and chat sites in general. What is the sharee‘ah perspective on a wife using Facebook to chat with friends from school and work, including non-Muslim male friends from her work-place?

The wife's initial intention to get Facebook was to catch up with female friends from her school days.

Bad in Cooking

I was good in cooking but after marriage I make blunders in cooking. My in-laws said nothing but it’s being more than three years and I still make mistakes. This makes me mentally upset all the time. Can you help me?

Having an Affair


Last Updated on Thursday, 24 October 2013 10:06

Correspondence of  Hazrat Moulana Shah Hakeem Muhammad Akhtar Saheb (rahimahullah)



I am saying this with much remorse that I had a relationship (affair) with a person in the last one year. He is 36 years old while I am 26 years old. This relationship is restricted to talking with each other. He is regular with his salaah, fasting, etc. but remains in the company of those who combine worldly engagements with deen. Our relationship was very minimal. But I still agree that this relationship is wrong. I would like to end this relationship in order to obtain the pleasure of Allah Ta‘ala. He did not say any loving words to me. He has many domestic responsibilities and therefore speaks little to me. Furthermore, we live in different towns. It is probably for these reasons that although I am committing the sin of having a relationship with him, I have saved myself from many other sins. He himself considers it a major sin if this relationship were to go beyond the limits.

Q: What will be the ruling for a woman who experiences bleeding during her pregnancy?

A: The bleeding of a pregnant woman is considered as istihaadhah (dysfunctional uterine bleeding). Hence, she will continue performing her salaah etc.


Q: Is salaah necessary on a woman in labour?


Last Updated on Tuesday, 01 October 2013 15:36

A: During labour, if a woman is conscious, she is still required to offer her salaah. If she cannot offer it with the normal postures, she will perform it with gestures (ishaarah). However, if by performing salaah she fears for the life of the child, she may delay her salaah.
