Ladies Itikaf

E-mail Print PDF

Q: Can you please explain the correct method for a woman who wants to sit in itikaaf at home during the last 10 days of ramadan. Also what is the niyat and intention.

A:
1. She will make I’tikaaf in the place reserved for Salaah in the house. This will be like the Masjid for her. Her eating, drinking, etc. will take place here. If she exits from this place without a valid Shar’i reason, her I’tikaaf will break.

2. If a special place in the house was specified for Salaah, she will make I’tikaaf in that specified place only. If no place was specified from before, it will now be specified and I’tikaaf will be made in this place.

3. A married woman needs the permission of the husband to sit in I’tikaaf. He can refuse permission. However, once he has given permission, he cannot retract.

4. Once he has granted permission and she is sitting in I’tikaaf, sexual intercourse, romancing, kissing, etc. will not be permissible. If sexual intercourse took place, her I’tikaaf will break.

5. I’tikaaf cannot be made when in Haidh or Nifaas. If these take place during I’tikaaf, it will break. If Haidh or Nifaas took place during I’tikaaf, after becoming Paak, she will make Qadhaa of only the day on which the Haidh started.

6. She will make the Niyyah of Sunnah I’itikaaf if she is sitting in the last ten days of Ramadhaan. (Rauza aur Itikaf ke so masaail, Mufti Muhammad Ebrahim, pg 58-59)

Q: Is online trading of Bitcoin, one coin (crypto currency), etc halal?

A:
Trading in Bitcoin currency or crypto currency is permissible. This has become a valid means of exchange over the internet with many companies and individuals. The Bitcoin has become a virtual or digital coin that represents real money. Real money was used to buy Bitcoins which are then used to trade over the internet. The end user is able to cash in the Bitcoins and receive real money for his trade, etc. Therefore this type of trade is Halaal and lawful

Payment of Debt

E-mail Print PDF

Q: I owed someone money a large amount of money. I'm almost sure the person I sent paid him because I trust that person for years and have never had a problem with them. I checked the money with someone else the day before I sent it to be paid but he denies or doesn't remember me paying him and he didn't give the person a receipt. He didn't wipe out the money that I paid him. If the person that I sent didn't steal the money and did pay him but he must have forgotten because he was very busy so what's the ruling? Basically there's no proof that I paid him but Allah Ta'ala knows the money was paid or not.

A:
If the person you sent with the payment can testify on oath, in front of the other, that he had indeed paid him the money, then you are absolved of the debt. However if he says that he cannot recall delivering the money to the other person (i.e. to your creditor) then he is responsible for the debt, not you. For then it is certain you gave him the money; the doubt is from his side whether he passed it on to your creditor or not; hence he (the one you sent with payment) is responsible to pay the money from his side.

I trust the above is clear

Q: My husband and I decided to get divorced. We are also in the business together (I work for him). I recently moved out. I would like to know:-

1. What happens next? When does the divorce apply?
2. Does he still have to maintain me during my iddat period whilst I am working?

A:
The divorce comes into effect from the time it is issued.

You are not allowed to work during the Iddat period. He has to maintain you during your Iddat.

Q: I want to ask about talaaq (divorce) that if husband gives divorce 3 times but he is drunk and next day he says he does not remember about the divorce, is the divorce valid?

A:
Talaaq issued by an intoxicated person is valid and binding. (Raddul Muhtaar V10 P470).

In this particular case, three Talaaqs have taken place. Him remembering or not does not make a difference.
