    As 'Salamu Alayqum

    A brother was interested in marrying a sister. His parents, particularly his father, did not let him marry her because they disliked her for no stated reason. They then pressured the son to marry a girl of their liking. He married her and though they are fine with their marriage now the other girl he was interested in got married to someone else and then her marriage failed and she got divorced. Now the brother has resumed his interest in that sister who is now divorced. But his parents are still opposed to him marrying her. They still dislike her. And they won't let him marry anyone else either now that he is married to the wife they chose. Can the brother do his marriage secretly from his parents? Without their permission? Or is he obliged to obey them and not marry a second woman and especially refrain from that girl? He is very irritated with his parents and now fights with them and insults them.

    Islamic Divorce Haram Vs Divorce Halal

    Salam all,

    I'd like to keep these personal issues anonymous, there is no need to know who I am or who my ex-wife is, but Allah (swt) knows best..

    Question-1
    ---------------
    I got divorced recently, and would like to get an advise please. My ex-wife and I (both muslims) got married in a Muslim country, today we both live in USA. But when we got divorced, my ex-wife chose to get a divorce in the American court which I am Ok with that. But, when I asked my ex-wife that we do need to get a divorce the Muslim way as well, she never wanted to do that.. Today, she got married to another person and based on what I was told by other brothers & sisters that my ex is committing adultery (Zina) because we are not divorced the right Muslim way..

    I'd like to know if she is in fact committing a sin, if so, am I committing a sin too despite the fact I asked her to finish our divorce the Muslim way ?

    Question-2
    ---------------
    My ex-wife met this guy who sells electronic cigarettes who calls himself a Muslim, and when I approached my ex and told her that my kids can not & will not live this filthy environment, she said what her husband is doing is not Haram. Not only he sells this chemical poison to teenagers, but he also invite teenagers to compete in his own store as to whom makes Cool Circles using using eCigaretters.

    Can you please tell me if this is Haram or not ?


    Question-3
    ---------------
    My ex met this guy on a Muslim dating site, and 4 weeks later she married him at the Massjid to give the perception to her friends that what she is doing is Halal, and then 4 weeks later she brought him to what it used to be my house, in front of my kids. I was very concerned about my kids especially you the youngest one who kept sending me disturbing text messages around 2am where he should have been sleeping to get ready for school in the morning, but he kept telling me that he couldn't sleep because there is a stranger in his house.

    I told my ex that is her life & she can marry anyone she wants to, but why rushing in bringing someone that quick to my kids. What is this guy she met online is a murder or child molester ? I asked her that she should have introduced this guy slowly to our kids so she doesn't traumatize them.. But there is absolutely nothing I can do because the Law in this country will not look into this as inappropriate for the kids unless they are being harmed or abused somehow by the new guy their Mom she married.. Basically, I have to wait until something bad happens to my kids..

    She even went as far as sleeping with this guy in my former house, in my bedroom and even on our Halal bed in which our youngest child was born in. I told her what she is doing with this guy is pure Haram and she should throw away our bed and buy a new one, but again there is not much I can do about it..

    Is there any advise as to what I should do to save my kids from this filthy environment my ex-wife has put them into ? And if there is any Haram I am committing during our divorce process ? Of course, at the end of the day, Allah (swt) will be the judge and punish the Monafiqueen accordingly..

    You views & suggestions are welcome, but I really would like to hear an advise from an Imam or Sheikh if possible..

    Thank you & Salam.

    The practice of 20 rakaats tarawee has remained a common practice from the time of nabee صلي الله عليه و سلم upto this day, as is witnessed in the haramain. For more detail refer to the following link of Mufti Ebrahim Desai

    The brother should've listened to his parents right from the beginning and stopped running after strange women, then he would not find himself in this situation.

    Has he ever bothered asking them why they don't like her?

    Wa `alaykumus salaam.

    1: If you did not divorce in a way acceptable in the sharee`ah then she is living in zinaa, and you will be complicit in allowing it to prolong despite having no interest in remaining married to her. There is no such thing as fomality in the sharee`ah where divorce is concerned, all you do is just say once: "I have divorced you" and that's it.


    2: Smoking is haraam, whether it be weed, cigarettes, hookah or e-cigarettes, they are all haraam.


    3: What she is doing is 100% permissible in Islaam (providing her marriage was valid), there is no such thing as "my house" "my room" "my bed".

    If you have divorced her, and she has remarried, then custody of the children passes to you (provided you are able to look after them), if that's the case then you should get them to move in with you, while still allowing your ex full rights to visit the children.

    Wallaahu A`lam.

    Working in the horse racing industry

    Salam brothers and sisters.
    As a child I've always loved horses and riding. And recently I finished high school and have been wanting to get a job with horses. I was thinking to be a stable hand and then advance to an exercise jockey. An exercise jockey basically works for a horse trainer and rides the horses in the mornings and workouts the horse.

    I was wondering is this halal as I would be working horses that are used for racing. Even though in today's world every sport there is betting and gambling but the racing industry is heavily in this.

    Re: Islamic Question and Answer thread

    Salam, I have searched the internet for an answer but nobody has asked / answered my exact question, which is:

    There are 3 siblings, parents deceased. 1 sibling lives in the parents' house. Later, one of the other siblings die (not the one living in the parents' house).

    So, if the house is sold, do the children of the deceased sibling get a share according to Islamic law? Please could you give me a quote from Quran / Sunnah to guide me to a conclusion.

    I know it would be a nice to give the neices (children of the deceased sibling) the deceased sibling's share. What I am only asking, though, is: is it compulsory to give them the deceased sibling's share?

    As I had imagined it: The siblings all get a share in the house when it is sold. If one of the siblings dies, then the other siblings remain as the *only* inheritors, because a dead person cannot be paid anything and therefore cannot pass anything to their own kids. Just to be clear: the inheritance was *never* in the hands of the now-deceased sibling. It is a house, and the house has not been sold yet.

    So, now that the sibling is deceased, do the sibling's children inherit the deceased sibling's share of the house, when the house is later sold?

    All people should obey their parents, Parents know what is best for you and have more experience than you. Parents should be obeyed. A person may correct his parents, but stay away from arugument

    "Thy Lord hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and ye be kind to your parents." (Qur'an 17:23)


    ************Abdullah bin Omar*(رضى الله عنه)*relates that the Holy Prophet*(صلى الله عليه وسلم)*said: “Allah’s pleasure and approval are in the pleasure and approval of the parents, and Allah’s anger lies in the displeasure of the parents”. (Tirmidhi)

    As far as i know, animals should not be tortured. As long as they are not tortured and are fed, the sport is permissible.

    For example, if the deceased is survived by his father, his mother, his wife, one son and one daughter, and assuming that the total wealth left behind by the deceased was 100,000.00….the distribution of the wealth according to Shariah will be as follows:

    The father of the deceased will receive 1/6th*or 16.67% or 16,666.67The mother of the deceased**will receive 1/6th*or 16.67% or 16,666.67Her wife of the deceased will receive 1/8th*or 12.50% or 12,500.00The balance (100,000.00 – 16,666.67 -16,666.67 – 12,500.00) 54,166.66 will, in this situation, be divided into three equal parts (18,055.55), and the son will receive twice the share of the daughter.**Thus the daughter in this situation will receive 18,055.55 and the son will receive (18,055.55 x 2) 36,111.10.

    I know it is impermissible, but is it allowed to gain knowledge from them?

    For example, what kind of knowledge are you gaining? (I mean, what knowledge can you gain from a picture of a human being, that too hand drawn. I didn't understand this part yet).

    The knowledge a drawn picture gives which will enhance your career in which you make money. For example a person wants to be a goalkeeper in a team in which he makes money. He gets the knowledge from pictures, like a picture showing how to save a ball.
