Girls Going on Excursion

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Is it advisable for young girls (grade 12) to go on an overnight excursion? The place is less than 78km so the parents and certain teachers feel it is no problem. Certain male parents want to accompany them which will be a means of them seeing the other girls.

Communal Living


Last Updated on Tuesday, 11 August 2015 15:32


Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I need some advice about communal living. From an Islamic point of view, is it permissible to reside in the same home as ones father in law?

I am living with my husband and children in the same home as my in laws. I don’t have a relationship with my father in law. He has anger management issues and is always in a bad mood. I am uncomfortable to live in the same home as someone who refuses to talk, be pleasant or greet back. Also, is he is my ghair mahram? So from that view point is it allowed? Are there any hadith’s about this situation?

I Don’t Trust him Going to the Gym


Last Updated on Monday, 01 June 2015 15:56


Assalaamu alaikum

Respected Ulama

I am married for 5 months to a boy I’ve known from before. I have very severe trust issues especially when my husband goes to the gym. He has a habit of not lowering his gaze and I get scared that he’ll notice other women. Is it wrong of me to have these thoughts?

I regret knowing the boy from before I got married as I wish it was done the halal way but nevertheless I regret what I’ve done and I try to repent for it.

How do I deal with my trust issues as it is ruining me and making me depressed?

Jazakallah Khair for your time and advice.

Why hijab is so important for a woman?


Bismihi Ta‘ala

Wa ‘alaikumus salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barkaatuh

Respected Sister

The importance of hijaab is due to it being the law of Allah Ta‘ala. As the slaves of Allah Ta‘ala, that is all that we need to be concerned about – that what is the law of Allah Ta‘ala. We should then submit to that command without any question and without delving into the wisdom behind that law.

Friend is in Love


Last Updated on Monday, 20 April 2015 15:42


Assalaamu ‘alaikum

I know of this friend of mines. She is in love with a boy who is 10 years her senior. They are family and both people come from respectable households. The girl hasn’t admitted her love to anyone. She made du‘aa that if this boy is meant for her she should see him in a dream. After a while, she saw him in a dream.

The thing is that if she has to tell her parents, they might get angry at her, because she is still young and is studying. The boy was previously married but she doesn’t care about that. It doesn’t affect her much but she just thought that maybe she should ask about it.
