Q: Is it permissible for a lady, to perform Salaah with a see-through scarf or burqa?

A: Salaah performed with a scarf or burqa through which a lady’s hair or/and skin is visible, is not permissible.

Hadhrat Aaisha (Radiyallahu Anha) was once asked about the scarf of a woman. She replied that the scarf should conceal the skin and the entire hair of a woman.


Q: What colours of clothing are men prohibited from  wearing?

A: Men should not dress in plain red and yellow (saffron) colours. These two colours are abominable for men. Likewise, men should abstain from those colours which are specific to females, e.g. pink, purple and other bright colours, etc.


Q: While performing wudhu, when should one make khilaal of the fingers?
A: Khilaal of the fingers will be made after washing the hands. [Raddul Muhtaar]


Q: The Quraan encourages us to make Taubatun Nasuha? What is the criteria for Taubatun Nasuha?
A: The word taubah, literally, means 'to turn' or 'to return', in the sense of turning or withdrawing from sins. In the terminology of the Qur'an and Sunnah, it signifies 'to regret committing sins in the past and to firmly resolve abstaining from them in future'.

Sayyidnii 'Ali radhiallahu anhu was asked as to what is 'taubah' and he replied thatit consists of six elements:

[I] to regret one's past evil deeds;
[21 to carryout Divine duties that were missed;
[3] to restore the rights that were usurped;
[4] to ask forgiveness of a person who has been wronged by him physically or verbally;
[51 to make a firm resolve of avoiding the sin infuture; and
[61 to consume one's self in obedience of Allah as one thus far consumed one's self in His disobedience. [Mazhari].
