Question:

May I please have advice (sin, punishment etc) that I can pass on to those females that kiss their male cousins upon greeting and advice to the male cousins that allow their cousins to kiss them. May I also have advice that I may pass on to females that kiss their brother in laws. May Allah reward you in abundance in both worlds, Ameen.

Slaughtering a Black Goat

Question:

Assalaamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh 

My husband recently went to see a Hakeem as he believes that someone has done something to him. He came back with water to drink and lemons that he should rub on his body after he must cut up  the lemon and throw it away. The hakeem also told him to buy a black goat which he must slaughter and rub the goat’s blood on his body after 2hours he should wash it off. He received a taweez as well. Is this allowed in Islam as i have not heard of it before? He brought the same prescription for me as well even though i did not inform him whether i have a problem or not. I am doubting all this and would appreciate it if you could give more clarity on this matter. 

Jazakaallah
