Consent of concubines

I have been researching slavery in Islam in hopes of trying to understand it better. I understand it is abolished now but I have a few questions regarding concubinage.

1.Was the female slave master able to force her into a marriage contract without her consent?

2. Could he acquire a married slave and force her to get a divorce?

I had a vision of a young girl?

so I was minding my business in my room, when I suddenly saw a vision of young girl, she was very young maybe 10 or 11 and she was light brown complexation, I thought she was really pretty, she was gone as fast she came though. I have never had a vision like this in my life before but she appeared right in front of my eyes like I was seeing a real person. something told me it was Aisha but I don't think Aisha was brown but I could be wrong though.
Does this have an significance or should I just ignore it?

Evil / Demons affecting me again

I need to ask a thing regarding how demons can affect one's life. I had suffered from black magic issues from almost 23 years, had a Ruqyah / exorcism done almost 2 months back, not just of me but also of my family's and things started to get better and i even got a job and moved to a different city. But last night, I woke up before Fajr, turned the torch on of my phone and i don't know what happened but I got kinda unconscious when immediately I saw a witch near me just like one i saw years ago, I came to senses then and literally screamed and almost threw my phone at her that dropped down but i was so scared to even grab it up. I wanna know if there is any possibility that evil things may come back to me even after Ruqyah (because what I always felt like I am a gateway for them, even one was living inside of me that was removed). Please let me know because if it started happening again, I my lose my patience to deal with it this time, suggest some viable things for recitation or either I should go get it checked again. I am currently in Islamabad, Pakistan.

Aoa, one doctor used to touch more than required to female patients. He repents but after few months again do same sins.He touched one married woman once after few months again did the same thing with same woman. Then after few months she saw that woman in face of devil and he prayed on the spot from Almighty to save him from that woman and show right path to both of them but after that in following week his sins of touching increased and he done Zina of putting fingers in vagina of one patient first time and next day when that woman came with daughter child again touched her and when that woman touched him suddenly he experience sparkling light within his eyes and when in shocked like state after that his hand touched her breast like going itself. Then the words come from his mouth that come with OPD slip for medicine then that woman after an hour or so came again without daughter and sat on chair behind the door and after all patients gone and only peon was left. When peon was going outside he was not clearly visible to doctor and after peon went out suddenly doctor felt that someone pushed him from chair towards door and at door doctor noticed white white outside nothing clear and when he closed the door lock he experienced blackout and someone moving him towards woman where she was sitting and then moved him towards examination chair ( doctor can't felt his body wether his leg moving or in air going here and there ) then words uttered from doctor mouth move your shirt up woman replied anyone can see then words came from doctor mouth that door is closed ( at that time her face was little bit visible) and then doctor's face moved towards her breast which was not visible only blackout then moved upward again because doctor was wearing mask and then again towards breast (it was like someone is holding his face and moving up and down) and then few seconds after doctor noticed milk in his mouth and asked her that it's milk?she replied yes then doctor was confused and milk collected in mouth unable to spit or intake then again face went towards breast ( nothing is visible) then she said i will not give without money and suddenly doctor felt and saw ''zina " word written in her forehead area inside and he replied no no i just want to see. Then Zina of eyes, hand , feet , and mouth done but in confused state and nothing was clearly visible except face of that woman then how she reached again towards door, doctor is unaware of it and when she opened the door and asked about medicine then doctor was able to see her and replied. So what you think what is this? Sehr or magic or what? Doctor left that city after this incident and told this to her mother and in another city within a month got married with intention to save himself from devil . Now should he again go to his workplace? Or avoid that city.he is doing job as a government officer. And Doctor few days after again saw something like while opening the door of his home that someone picked him up from crowd in that city and flew away.

Does contributing to an emergency family fund count as Zakat / Sadaqa

We have a family fund within our extended family. The fund is designed to be a collection in case someone in the family requires that money unexpectedly (e.g. sudden death of the main bread-winner).

The rules of the fund are that everyone contributes what they can. The money may only be dispersed amongst family members. Alhamdulillah, nobody in the family currently requires this money. The fund is accumulating and the target is $100,000 USD.

Does contributing to such a fund count as Zakat or Sadaqa? Or should this be treated like a savings account for the family and be separated from one's obligatory donations?

Rights of Neighbors and Animals

Asalamu'alykum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakaatuh

Dear Shaikh,
For quite a while my family have been feeding stray cats in our garden as a means of reward, having listened to many stories about kindness towards animals we thought it could be a means of jannah for us, up until recently we have not had any issues from our neighbors, we have only recently been made aware that these stray cats have been leaving excrement in their gardens. The neighbors have told us to stop feeding them as it is causing them annoyance having to clean the waste. If we stopped feeding them then they would potentially stop coming to the area, although that isn't certain as others might also be feeding them.

We were wondering how to tackle this, do we listen to our neighbors and completely stop feeding the cats or do we continue to feed them and continue to gain reward as there is no point stopping as others might also feed them?

Are these fixed-fee loan terms halal or shariah compliant?


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?

Is betel nut haram?

Salam alaikum,

Is betel nut haram? The World Health Organization, the Journal of the American Dental Association, the American Society for Clinical Nutrition, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have linked this substance with several incurable conditions, addiction, reproductive issues, and oral cancer (Source: https://www.healthline.com/health/betel-nut-dangers#cancer-risk ). 

Modern medical research proves that this incredibly harmful, thus eating or chewing it would be an act of causing harm to one's self. Does this make eating or chewing betel nut haram?

Dear Shiek,
There are many Ahadith which say that Allah removed some verses from the Quran. How accurate are those Ahadith and what is the stance of hanafi Madhab in these matters? Like the hadith which says that the verses of stoning and breastfeeding are abrogated from the Quran, yet the ruling remains.

And Secondly, What is the hanafi Stance on using Hadith?

Is it allowed to use a pen which has some gold parts?

I am looking to purchase a pen - https://www.whsmith.co.uk/products/parker-duofold-classic-black-fountain-pen-with-palladium-trim-medium-n/3501179313887.html

Part of the nib is made of 18-carat solid gold nib and the pen trim is partly made of the metal Palladium.

From the picture it seems that the nib is made from less than 50% gold, will it be permissible to use such a pen?
