Q: If and infant/toddler comes infront of you during salaah, can you move them?

A:
Yes, one may move them gently with minimal movement without turning the chest away from the Qiblah and without talking.

 

Q: Got my haidh (periods) 4 January after 2 years and made ghusul on the 9 January and started bleeding again 24 January.

A:
According to the easiest of the 4 views regarding Tuhr-e-Mutakhallil, the bleeding that reappears before 15 days of purity will be joined to the first bleeding and the woman will consider herself continiously bleeding from the first bleeding. This being the case she will revert to her previous habit of purity and Haidh. Hence if her last Haidh was e.g. 7 days then 7 days from the 4th will be her Haidh and the remainder Istihaazah i.e. after the 11th. Pending on her previous habit of purity and her still bleeding still continuing, her next will Haidh will be calculated accordingly.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: I had a question regarding permissibility in medicine under Hanafi Fiqh.

I am currently speaking to a sister about marriage and we have entered a point in our conversation where we are discussing our medical histories. I told her that I was born with cryptorchidism and had it treated when I was 6.5 years old. However, I am subject to a higher risk of infertility.

While the sister does not see it as an issue, I went to a urologist who said that the only way to check fertility is through a semen analysis.

Would it be permissible to conduct a semen analysis for the purposes of checking fertility in a risky case, such as in my situation? Would this subject me to any 'curse', similar to the one who touches himself for pleasure? Would this take away from the baraka in the marriage process? Would ihsan be to leave it unchecked & trust in Allah or would ihsan be to conduct the semen analysis to protect a sister from the risk of marrying a potentially infertile man?

In plain terms, I will be required to masturbate into a cup so that the urologist can check my semen for fertility.

A:
If this is the only method to determine treatment and there is no alternative then it will be permissible to do this. (Fataawa Mahmoodiyyah, Vol 27, page 333/334)

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best

 

Q: A man told his wife: "If you speak to him again, we are done." He did intend Talaaq (divorce). But thereafter he found out from an Aalim who told him that a Kinaayah conditional Talaaq can be revoked and cancelled. So now she spoke to that man again. Does Talaaq take place and if yes, what type of Talaaq?

A: In our understanding, once a condition has been made then it cannot be revoked, therefore when she does speak to this man then one Talaaq will take place. Since the Talaaq was issued via Kinaayah words it appears to be a Talaaq-e-Baain.

If this is the first or second Talaaq that has been issued then the couple may reconcile by performing a new Nikah (marriage).

 

Q. Explain the difference between Fardh, Sunnah and Nafl I’tikaaf.
A. There is no such thing as Fardh I’tikaaf. If a person takes an oath to perform I’tikaaf, then it becomes Waajib. The I’tikaaf of the last ten days of Ramadan is Sunnah and performing I’tikaaf whenever one wishes to is Nafl.

Q. Do the rulings of Sunnah mu’akkadah I’tikaaf also apply to one performing Mustahab (Nafl) I’tikaaf?
A. The rulings of Sunnah mu’akkadah do apply in Nafl I’tikaaf. However, in a Nafl I’tikaaf fasting is not a prerequisite. As for Sunnah mu’aakadah I’tikaaf, it only takes place during the last ten days of Ramadhan and fasting is a prerequisite. Secondly, in Nafl I’tikaaf, if one leaves the masjid without a valid reason his I’tikaaf period will automatically end and it won’t break. However, the Sunnah I’tikaaf will break.

Q. If a mu’takif mistakenly leaves the masjid what will the ruling be?
A. His I’tikaaf will be nullified.
