*i have typed this verbatim with capitalization and spelling as it appears on the image of a hijabi making dua.
Is this permissible? I have no idea who initiated this. Thank you for any guidance and daleel.
Jazhak Allahu Kahairan,
my mom posses two credit cards both have debt of many thousands with interest, all the debt isn’t filled yet. although she was known that it’s haram but still... but she’s sorry from heart now. her this sin would be forgiven after she completes all her debts.
As-Salāmu ʿalaykum wa-Raḥmatu -llāhi wa-barakātuh. We are a joint family comprising of 2 unmarried sisters and me. One of my sisters, due to health reasons is not working and is provided Zakat by us to support her needs. She is approaching her fifties but is unable to understand and manage her financial matters on her own. We don’t have any other relatives who are or would be willing to support her financially. There are no state financial support benefits she is eligible for either. I want to set up a sort of investment scheme which generates regular income for her in future to try to cover her expenses. Can I allocate a significant portion of my Zakat on a yearly basis to fund such a scheme? If yes, how would the matter of Zakat payable on such scheme be addressed? If the scheme is in her name, the assets would exceed the Nisab value and I assume she would not be eligible for Zakat then. If I maintain the scheme in my name, after the first year and then annually, I assume I would be required to pay Zakat on the accumulated Zakat payments (assets of the scheme) of prior year(s)? I would appreciate your guidance regarding both the matter related to financial support and Zakat computation based on our specific situation. Jazak Allahu Khayran.

I have gotten some sort of infection on my chin that my doctors are not able to recognise properly because of my beard. I live in a lower class country and don't have enough money to travel to see better doctors. Am I allowed to remove some of the beard so that my doctors can treat me?
I am practicing Islam, Alhamdulilah. But I have a problem the problem is that I feel attracted to Christianity. It bothers me a lot especially when I see a cross of anything related to Christianity. Can you recommend some duas or anything that wil help me. May Allah bless you for helping the ummah
Is keeping a beard fardh or fiqqi sunnah ? I heard a few scholars said that its fiqqi sunnah and i also read that most of the scholars say its fardh and including 4 imaams. May you please tell me what the hanafi school of thought says ?
And concerning the beard can we trim to make it look good ?
And are we allowed to shave ? Is it a sin ?
I am a therapist and have started my own practice. Alhamdulillah I can finally sustain my monthly business costs but growth is slow as I do not have enough capital to advertise/expand to at least contribute to my personal financial targets. I'm facing either further investment into my business (via a loan) or closure. I have been offered a loan with a "fixed fee" and these are the known terms: 1) The fixed fee is a percentage of the loan amount (10% or less); 2) The actual loan amount and fixed fee will vary (based on loan amount) but there is no interest rate, no other costs after the loan is disbursed; 3) The loan must be repaid within a specified time-frame (e.g., 1 year). Is this loan truly interest-free and/or halal?
I am trying to search for a halal mortgage institution who can loan me money to buy a house in Canada but I couldn't find any Halal financing options. Do you know of any institution that provides Halal Home Loans in Canada. or is there any other way out ?
