Recovering Financial Loss

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 01/15/2017 - 04:57

Assalam o alaikum I run an Interior company and I did a job for one of my clients against a agreed value. The work is being completed and around 80% payment payment is also being done. I am following up for the balance payment for the past many years but all in vain. On top of that the client is also not in the country for 1year and is not intending to pay us as well. They have not paid to many other people like us. Recently I came to know that one of their asset(car) is left behind and they have actually thrown it. I some how managed to get the keys from their office.

Electing a Non-Muslim Ruler

Submitted by Anonymous on Sun, 01/08/2017 - 22:54

Salam. I live in a muslim majority country, but a secular one. Every non-muslim could be a ruler here (president or governor) if he/she gets elected democratically. however, as a shia muslim who concerns about Islamic law or fatwas, living in a state like this, am I still obligated to stand for muslim candidates regardless, if their capability in governance isn't as good as the non-muslim ones? And are there some exceptions according to Islam when non-muslim could be elected as a ruler by muslims?

Assalamu Alaikum, My question is regarding leasing a car. I want to purchase a car but as everywhere there is interest based financing i cancelled my buying options. Recently i came to know about a leasing offer wherein you lease a car for 3 yrs at a predetermined monthly amount. As per me its just a monthly rent for 3 years. But while the company person was talking i heard like something interest involving. What i believe is that company has their own calculations of amount. I just saw the monthly amount as rent for 3 years and signed the offer, but now i am totally confused what to do.

Salaam. According to Ayatullah Sistani, when is Qadha of Dhuhr/Asr prayers, and Qadha of Maghrib/Isha? If I start praying before/at the time of Qadha, but by the time I complete my Salaah the time has passed, what is the ruling? Thanks.

Execution of Will

Submitted by Anonymous on Sat, 12/10/2016 - 21:13

If my mother has made a will by leaving one of her children out of the inheritance but did this in the heat of the moment and as time went on forgot about the will and didn't change it. Then when she passed away and the will is implemented, can the other children then distribute the estate according to Islamic law? Will this then mean that the mother has followed the religion regarding inheritance. The reason we continued to with the will is because it may have been very complicated to contest the will.

Can we pay some part of the money of Khums to a relative in the family who is in need of money. For example if my Khums Bill is £10000, can I pay her £2500 a year so it can help her meet day to day expenses in her life. Since she is a divorced and has a son who is studying.

If a couple who are engaged do mutah and engage in sexual intercourse with either the female or the male tempting the other and engaging without parents consent, are they sinning? And what is the punishment for this for the man and woman?
