Q: A lady who has her authentic Sayyid tree (descendants of the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam), had accepted Zakaat and long used it already. At the time she was not aware that she could not accept Zakaat. How does she make amends?

A:
It is safest that she give out whatever she received as Zakaat in charity to the poor and needy Zakaat recipients.

Q: A person passed away 6 months ago and was buried after 3 months by the state as a pauper along with 2 non Muslims in a cemetery. The family only found out now and have obtained permission from the state to exhume the body.
1. Can ghusl be done now?
2. Can janazah salaah be performed?

A:
If a person was buried without ghusal and Janaazah Salaah then the Janaazah Salaah will be performed at his grave provided the body has not decomposed. If after performing the Janaazah Salaah and burying the deceased it was discovered that ghusal was not given to him, then the Janaazah Salaah will have to be repeated at the grave provided the body has not decomposed.

Note: The time it takes for the body to decompose will be determined through the nature of the soil of the area in which the deceased was buried. This will differ from place to place. Hence, it is not possible to specify any period of time. This is the most preferred opinion among the Fuqaha. (Ad Durrul Mukhtar 2:224)

Q: Is gelatine halaal or not?

A: Gelatine derive from halaal slaughtered animals would be halaal. Although some ulama have permitted gelatine derived from non halaal animals caution demands abstention.

Q: There's a hadith something to this effect that all nations were presented on a plain of land to Nabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam he saw some Prophets standing with less than ten followers, and some Prophets were standing all by themselves.
And Nabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam was told to look to the horizons and there were his followers. He was also told that 70,000 people from his ummah will enter paradise without reckoning and without punishment.

The Hadith goes further on, and Nabi sallallahu alaihi wa sallam explains that these 70,000 are those people who have four qualities in them:
1) they don't ask for Ruqya to be recited for them
2) they don't brand themselves with fire
3) they don't take bad omens
4) they place their trust in Allah.

The man who gave the talk about this hadeeth said #2 refers to a procedure called cauterization. Does this refer all types of cauterization? Because it's now often used a number of medical procedures such as circumcision and tonsillectomy?

A: According to our understanding the cauterization resorted to for medical purposes appears to be excluded from this.
