Please advise me as to where I can obtain an interest-free loan to free all this debt, as it is very stressful for me.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Is it permissible for a lady to wear clothing that is partially transparent at home in front of the maid and children? When I say ‘partially transparent’, I mean her skin and underwear can be clearly seen. 

Also, what does the sharee‘ah say about such conduct and dressing?

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I have a problem. Guys come see me and don’t come back or call again. It’s like when they see my face they have to run like hell. I am not so repulsive though. It’s so sad.

It’s not like I don’t pray my salaah or try to the best of my ability to do everything right. I remind myself patience is the key.

Allah make it easy for us to come out victorious from these tests.

Jazakallah
