What should I do. Please help
Salam. I have read earlier answers about Shaykh Nuh Kellers book which contains fiqh solution to qibla in North America but a riend of mine is saying that our prayers are not according to the consensus of Abu Hanifa in "Tabyin al Haqaiq" because he says quote "the people of the west face east and people of the north face south". He said since we are in the north west we should face south east according to abu hanifas rule. A friend told him the scholars didn't know the earth was a globe at the time which another brother disagreed with and then it got into a longer discussion. How can we answer the three points stated by our south east facing brother: 1. The consensus is mentioned by Abu Hanifa. We are in the north west so face south east. 2. The consensus of an era is evidence for a following era ( Imam Haramyn in Waraqat). 3. Nawawi said in Rawd Talibin' It is not valid to make ijtihad except by qibla references. the weakeast is wind and the strongest is the polaris. He is saying the north east qibla wasnt determined using these methods. Can you please help us answer the brother because our friend group is now praying in both directions and saying both are right? According to some of your other posts, general direction is fine since we cant see the Kaaba. So do we follow consensus of abu hanifa or consensus of muslims now and say imam haramayn made a mistake?

Assalamu'alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, Just to give a bit of background, I am a 26-year-old female of Pakistani descent. I have always had a fear of marriage as I come from an extremely traditional Pakistani family. My family only marry into the family and marriage outside the family is rare. This is something I have always dreaded as I feel the women in my family are extraordinary, but the men in my family are subpar (in terms of intellect, ambition, success and most importantly, deen). My parents made it very clear to me that a marriage of my own choice would lead to them being very unhappy with me. Females were heavily judged and shamed for this while you can imagine the same rules did not apply to the men in my family. There is a huge double standard, however for this reason I never so much as spoke to a man beyond necessity. I have extreme anxiety around men to the point where I fear them. For this reason, I made peace with the fact that I would most likely have an arranged marriage within the family. My parents are not the type to force me, but emotional manipulation is a tactic used heavily in my family. My father is the patriarch of his family. He is extremely strict and scary. He has used his wealth and power to help his family but also control them. My family fear him, however, my father interprets this as respect. Because of this, my parents always assumed that marriage proposals would come flooding in through our immediate family. No such thing happened. To be honest, this does not bother me as I have prayed to avoid marrying any of my first cousins since I was as young as 12. However, this is a great source of anxiety for my parents as they don't know what to do with me. They view me as a burden, even if they pretend not to, I can tell. Fast forward to January 2024, finally, somebody in the family asked for my hand in marriage. I do not know anything about this person, as he is from Pakistan. However, multiple people vouch for him. They say this is a very good proposal. My aunty even said that I would not get a better proposal than this and that once good proposals slip away, you never get that chance again. I do not believe this. God would not punish someone for rejecting a proposal. If one door closes, He will open another one for you. I have never met this man but I did find his TikTok, on which his videos are extensive. He posts a lot of pictures of himself but also the content of horse racing, as this is his hobby. The reason I mention this is because from his pictures I know that I would not be attracted to this man. Not in the slightest. I know attraction can grow, but I am doubtful, it ever will. I don't want to be vain and I am sure there are women out there who would find him attractive, I am however not one of them. I don't want to have a wandering eye after marriage and wish for something better. I want to be committed to my husband and fulfil all my duties to him as a wife. Also, he is a lot younger than me, which is not a huge issue but it means he is not established at all. However, I have been told he takes care of his family as his dad lives and works in the Netherlands, which shows he is responsible. Additionally, he is educated and is studying to become a lawyer which is useless to me as I live in the UK so he will not be able to practise if he was to come here. Although I have only heard positive things about this proposal, even from family friends who know of him, I do not have a positive feeling towards this proposal. I do not want to marry this man. My family told me to pray istikhara and I prayed it 10 times. My feelings did not change, however, this proposal is not going away. His father and my entire family are very persistent. They will not leave me alone. They say I will regret it and say if you do not marry him, you will have to marry outside the family and you will regret it. They say people outside the family are untrustworthy and they keep trying to scare me and say that I will be treated badly. In my opinion, this is not a valid argument. Almost every woman in my family is unhappy. They do not have marriages that anyone would desire, but they are forced to stay as they married their cousins. I do not have a high opinion of my family as you can probably tell. I do not trust them to know what is best for me as they have never done right by the women in their care. They are extremely backwards in their thoughts and my father shows very little love towards his daughters. He does not even speak to my sisters, who are married, as he doesn't view them as his problem anymore. After marriage, I will not have his support regardless of whether I marry in the family or out of the family, so what difference does it make. The reasoning for my email is this: I don't understand what Allah is telling me. I really do not want to marry this man. I even cry when I think about it but why is everyone around me telling me to marry him? Sometimes Allah sends you a message through other people but I wish he would send me one directly. I am a practising Muslim and I pray my salahs but I feel so disconnected from Allah right now. I don't feel he is speaking to me as I am feeling one thing but everyone around me is pushing me towards this marriage. The message isn't clear. I don't know what to do but I do not want to marry this man. What should I do. I don't feel I have anyone on my side right now. I have started praying istikh?ra again but I find myself scared "What if Allah tells me to do it"? I want Allah to tell me that I am right in my apprehension. I wish for a clear sign. Please advise me on what I can do to get an answer from Allah, is there anything else beyond istikh?ra? I am so terrified of my family, I am so afraid of upsetting them but I can't throw away my own life for them. Please help me.
Respected Ulama, Assalamu Alaikum. I have read a fatwa (https://www.askimam.org/public/question_detail/35332) approved by Mufti Ebrahim Desai and got a clear clarification of the term في سبيل الله and how its virtues were meant for actual jihad (although we have different forms of jihad) and advising my friends and family not to use hadiths pertaining to jihad (path of Allah) for going out in tabligh. But recently I was reading Maariful Hadith (by Moulana Muhammad Manzoor Nomani), in volume 4 under the section Book of Holding Fast To The Quran and Sunnah under the topic Jihad & Martyrdom (topic 138 English Version Page 252, 253) the author after quoting a hadith from Bukhari (38/1906) Sayyidina Abu Abs & reported that Allah's Messenger & said, "It cannot be that once a man's feet become dusty on walking in the path of Allah, the fire of hell would touch them." (Saheeh Bukhari) in the commentry he quotes an incident and statement of a tabi'ee Abayah ibn Rifa'ah that The words in the path of Allah' do not restrict their application to jihad and fighting alone but encompass a greater field; to go to offer salah and to run about in service of religion and of what places Allah are also jihad. Now I'm confused whether we can actually use this type of hadiths for going out in tabligh jamaat or not. Can you Please explain this issue in detail and clarify my doubts ? also do Hadhrat Shaikhul Hadith Maulana Muhammad Zakariya (رحمة الله عليه) in his book named "Tablighi Jama'at Par E'terazat Aur Un Ke Jawabat" claims there is nothing wrong in quoting the hadiths of jihad for going out in tableegh ? I sincerely request you to clarify the issue in detail so that I can repent publicly (since I have been opposing every one who were using the hadiths of jihad for tableegh jamaat) and correct my views. May Allah reward you for your efforts. بارك الله فيكم

Assalamualaikum, hope you're well. I'm a university student in a city 112 miles from my family home. Upon previous advice, and as I consider my university city home as I spend a vast majority of my time there during the academic year, I shortened my prayers anytime I visited my family for less than 15 days. According to hanafi fiqh, have I erred? If I have, how do I go about quantifying how much qaza I have to pray as I don't have any accurate record as to how many times I've done this? Jazakallah khayr

Salam alaykum, I started investing in shares a few months ago. I've already put in over 400 euros. To determine whether a company is halal, I use the Musaffa application, which claims to follow the AAOIFI (Accounting and Auditing Organization for Islamic Financial Institutions) methodology. Can I continue to invest in this way? If not, should I sell everything immediately? May Allah reward you for your efforts

Salam 3aleykum, I would need religious advice. I am taking a contraceptive neuroleptic that I cannot stop. On the other hand, my husband refuses procreation, depriving me of an essential right. I have to go through artificial insemination. Is there a sin if the donor is someone other than my husband and is there a sin in resorting to this insemination without my husband's consent? Baraka Lahou fikum.

I have read that scholars allow pre pubescent intercourse if they can bear it: وأكثر المشايخ على أنه ‌لا ‌عبرة ‌للسن في هذا الباب وإنما العبرة للطاقة إن كانت ضخمة سمينة تطيق الرجال ولا يخاف عليها المرض من ذلك؛ كان للزوج أن يدخل بها، وإن لم تبلغ تسع سنين، وإن كانت نحيفة مهزولة لا تطيق الجماع ويخاف عليها المرض لا يحل للزوج أن يدخل بها، وإن كبر سنها وهو الصحيح الفتاوى الهندية، المطبعة الكبرى الأميرية، ج1 ص287 The majority of scholars say that age doesn’t matter. What matters is the ability. If she’s big and fat, can endure men and cannot fall ill from it (sex), then the husband can consummate his marriage even if she’s not nine years old yet. But if she’s thin and weak, and can’t endure intercourse, and can fall ill from it, then the husband isn’t allowed to consummate his marriage even if she’s old. This is the correct view. and I understood that due to changing times, scholars do not allow it and early marriage generally. So I ask this: If I believe it is immoral to consummate with someone 8-12 even if they can physically bear it, am I sinful? Scholars today do not allow it so am I sinful to believe it is immoral?

This is something that is causing me to lose faith in Islam. I understand that Islam allows child marriage and learned that it allows consummation with a bride who is prepubescent, even if they are not 9: The fact that it is permissible to marry a young girl does not mean that it is permissible to have intercourse with her; rather that should not be done until she is able for it. For that reason the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) delayed the consummation of his marriage to ‘Aa’ishah. Al-Nawawi said: With regard to the wedding-party of a young married girl at the time of consummating the marriage, if the husband and the guardian of the girl agree upon something that will not cause harm to the young girl, then that may be done. If they disagree, then Ahmad and Abu ‘Ubayd say that once a girl reaches the age of nine then the marriage may be consummated even without her consent, but that does not apply in the case of who is younger. Maalik, al-Shaafa’i and Abu Haneefah said: the marriage may be consummated when the girl is able for intercourse, which varies from one girl to another, so no age limit can be set. This is the correct view. There is nothing in the hadeeth of ‘Aa’ishah to set an age limit, or to forbid that in the case of a girl who is able for it before the age of nine, or to allow it in the case of a girl who is not able for it and has reached the age of nine. Al-Dawoodi said: ‘Aa’ishah (may Allaah be pleased with her) was reached physical maturity (at the time when her marriage was consummated). Sharh Muslim, 9/206 واختلفوا في وقت الدخول بالصغيرة فقيل لا يدخل بها ما لم تبلغ وقيل يدخل بها إذا بلغت تسع سنين ، كذا في البحر الرائق . وأكثر المشايخ على أنه لا عبرة للسن في هذا الباب وإنما العبرة للطاقة إن كانت ضخمة سمينة تطيق الرجال ولا يخاف عليها المرض من ذلك ؛ كان للزوج أن يدخل بها ، وإن لم تبلغ تسع سنين ، وإن كانت نحيفة مهزولة لا تطيق الجماع ويخاف عليها المرض لا يحل للزوج أن يدخل بها ، وإن كبر سنها وهو الصحيح and this is causing me doubts because medical knowledge shows there is much harms associated with early intercourse and pregnancies. I read that today while child marriage may not be allowed, it is only a temporary change and not ethical one and the ruling still exits. Lastly, history shows past societies had limits, laws and advised against early consummation and pregnancies as they were aware of the harms and risks with it. Thus I wonder why does Allah who is all knowing allow something that's harmful

There was a football match in my place, and finding tickets for them is very tough. My friend's cousin works in an agency which buys these tickets in bulk, I advertised selling these tickets in my university and had many buyers, I had my friend's cousin who's working in the agency buy the tickets for me, the agency was selling the tickets at a profit price and they were well aware that I'm reselling it for my own profit. Example the agency got the tickets for $10, they sold it to me for $25 and I was selling it for $35, and even the customer who was buying the tickets is well aware about the original price as the original price clearly shows up on the ticket when I send them the details of it before they buy it. I made almost $2000 from it and wanted to know if the income here is halal or haram. If it is haram, what should be done with the money I have? Also my parents are unaware about this and I'm 19, am I supposed to tell them about it?
