Is elongating the sleeve considered Isbaal? PDF Print E-mail

elongating the sleeve; is it considered isbaal?


This sleeve anyways is it to the wrist or to the fingers? All of this is permissible except if someone does it for showing off [and pride]; we say then it is haraam because of the showing-off [pride].

Custody of children after divorce PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 17 September 2010 08:43


When the men and the wife split and they have sons and daughters; whose is the custody?


They will be with the one whom the [Muslim] judge judges for. Meaning: if the husband and the wife don’t agree about who will take custody -between the two of them-; then the resault is the Islamic judge, and he will look into the benefits.

And we have to know that the intention behind custody and upbringing is the well-being of the one in custody [the children], and it is not permissible for the one in custody to be given to one who will not guard him and give him a good upbringing -even if that person has the right to custody in terms of relation- because we have known that he is careless, or we have known that he is one who is sinful, so this one; we cant leave the children with him/her and there is no custody for him/her.

Anyway what is important is that the resault is the judge, and it is upon him [the judge] to fear Allaah, and to consider the benefit of the children.”

Ruling of moving the ring during wudhoo PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 17 September 2010 08:39


Eminent shaykh, is it obligatory to move the ring or the watch during wudhoo?


The Fuqahaa said it is recommended to do so. But if it is tight-fitting then it is obligatory to move it because without that; the water will not reach what is beneath it. And Allaah The Mighty and Majestic says: “O you who believe! When you intend to offer As-Salât (the prayer), wash your faces and your hands up to the elbows…” , so it is obligatory to wash all of the hand from the tips of the fingers to the elbow….”

He has two wives who live a long distance apart PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 17 September 2010 08:36


Eminent shaykh, a man has two wives and each lives a far distance away and thus it isn’t feasible for him to divide the duration of staying at each of them equally –keeping in mind that the location of his business is in the same place as one of the wives- which leads him to spend more time with her than the other one. Is this husband sinful in this situation?


It is looked; are the two wives pleased with this situation or not? If they are, then the matter is easy and clear, because the rights belong to them so if they agree with what he is doing then there is no problem.

But if each of them was to demand her right, then it is a must on him to correct the situation: so if he stays six day with one of them then it is obligatory to stay six days with the other one; this is if it is difficult for him to travel every day [and be one day here and one day there], or divide the duration to whatever they agree upon [two days each, three, four…..].
