Use of child's savings

I have managed to save the money my daughter has received since her birth - both state benefit and cash gifts (the balance between the two is approximately 70% to 30%)

Last year I wanted to lend some of this money to my brother as kharaz-e-hasna for Hajj, but a Mufti in Southern Africa advised us that for various reasons we could not use that money.

This year we are in the process of buying a new house and my wife and I have a disagreement: she feels it would be appropriate to use my daughter?s money to fund the purchase of a new house, whereas I believe we could not.

Could you please clarifyfor what purpose, if any; my daughter's savings could be used for.

Salaams,

Education in Finance

Assalam-o-Alaikum!
I recently graduated from a university in USA and now would like to get an MBA degree. My question to the imam is that is it haram to pursue an MBA degree in Finance? Probably just pursuing a degree maynot be haram but the kind of work you do after may be an issue. Because the work that you usually do after a degree like that could range from being a Financial Analyst, Financial Advisor to Investment Banker. So is it halaal to work as any of the above mentioned positions?

Is there any evidence for nasheeds being permissable?

Assalam Alaikum Wa Rakhmatullah Wa Barakatu....
It says on your site that nasheeds are ok to listen to as long as there is no musical instrument or female voice. If you consider the two islamic principles; 1. Anything in the world is halal unless there is any evidence from Quran or Sunnah to say that it is haram and 2. Anything in WORSHIP is haram unless there is any evidence to say it is halal. Therefore i am wondering if the principle of worship that i have pointed out here whether this applys or not for nasheeds.....Is there any evidence that says nasheeds are permissable? as they are a form of worship....? So should we listen to them....? because if we havent been specifically told that this form of worship is permissable then how can we follow it? How can we know it would please Allah? isnt it just a thread of worship that has leaked out of the sufi sect?
InshAllah you will be able to clarify this for me
JazakAllahu Khairan

Faith

Farhad Rashidi explains the basics to non-Rashidi with little previous knowledge.

Origins Rashidi is the religion of allegiance to God and All of his prophets, who lived through out all humanity. The religion Belief is in all books of revelation, mediated by the prophets. The word Rashidi derives from the Persian word Rashid, which means rightly guided. Rashidi means "entering into a condition of honesty and love with God".

It is not a new faith; it is started with the creation of humanity. In Rashidi eyes, prophets completed their roles in this world by initiating others to honesty and love and discouraging hatred and envy, including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Mohammad each of whom refined and restated the message of God.

The human conscience therefore corroborates, updates and expands all the revelations put forward by Prophets. It contains the ability to differentiate between honesty, love and hatred, envy, revealed by God, and is settled in its current form since the creation of humanity by God. Main tenets Central to Rashidi are the absolute sense that there can only be one God and that he is the source of all creation and disposer of all lives and events. Hence, there is no God but God and All the prophets are his messengers.

All people should initiate each other to honesty and love by discouraging hatred and envy. On the Day of Judgment, all will rise from the sleep and will be rewarded according to their investment.

The human conscience contains many moral exhortations, forming the basis of Rashidi law. It lays down honesty and love and the requirements for daily initiation of honesty love and discouragement of hatred and envy.

The two pillars of the Rashidi faith - the fundamental constituents of Rashidi life - are: promoting honesty and love, discouraging hatred and envy, the profession of faith in the uniqueness of God and the centrality of conscience as his guider to humanity• initiation of each other to honesty and love and discouraging hatred and envy, as a formal worship or prayer which every Rashidi should undertake at least once in their daily life.

Somebody has convinced me that this true religion of all the prophets. What is your view. Is he muslim or not.


Addition sent by email:

Rashidi Faith does not believe in Haj, Five prayers in a day, fasting in Ramadan, mosques and imams.

Why are shias kafirs?

Why do people consider shias to be kafirs??????????????????????????? Please fill me in is it because of tawassal??????

The evidence for tawassul through the awliya' or saints is also abundant, and it suffices that Allah strictly warns all believers to keep company with them when He says: "O believers! Be wary of Allah, and keep company with the truthful!" (9:119) and He enjoins the followership of those who have turned to Him in true and complete repentence (31:15). The Prophet said to al-Firasi, concerning asking from
If you absolutely must ask from people, then ask from the righteous ones"


is it because of propaganda? can i have some quotes from the Quran?
people: "

Please shed some light
