Q: A husband sent his wife a message via WhatsApp stating: “I am divorcing you”.  Is the divorce valid and applicable?

A: It is not necessary for a husband to verbally utter divorce.  Talaaq issued via a WhatsApp message will be valid and applicable.  The Talaaq becomes applicable as soon as the husband types the message, and iddah(the waiting period) will start immediately.

You have to be certain that the message come from the husband

Notwithstanding the above, it is sad that the husband has chosen such a reckless way to terminate the marriage.  Marriage is undoubtedly among the greatest bounties of Allah.  Terminating a marriage is considered to be ‘the most reprehensible,  of all permissible things’.  If a marriage has reached breakage point, it should be ended amicably, observing etiquette and decorum.

 

Q: Is a Musafir (traveller) absolved of having to perform the Sunnan Salaah?

A: It is narrated by Ummi Habiba Radiyallahu Anha that Nabi Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam said: "Whoever reads 12 Rakaats Sunnan every day, a house will be built for that person in Jannah."  [Nasa’i] One should therefore, not unduly missing the Sunnan Salaah.

If a Musafir is on the move or fear that his companions may leave him behind, then he may suffice with the Fardh Salaah. On the other hand, if he is stationed at one place or has time at hand, it is best that he read the Sunnah Salaah, especially the Sunnah Muakkadah (emphasised Sunnah).

 

Q: Is it permissible for women to wear imitation jewellery?

A: Women are not allowed to wear imitation rings. They are only allowed to wear gold or silver rings. However, besides rings, other types of imitation jewellery (such as bangles, necklaces, etc.) are permissible. [Aurat Ke Lie Banau Singaar Ke Shar’I Ahkaam pg: 39 & 40]

 

Q: How should Masah of the head be made?

A: The Fuqaha have mentioned two methods of making Masah of the head:

1)            Both hands should be passed over the entire head, commencing from the front of the head and terminating at the back of the head. [Shami V1/121; Bahr V1/P26; FathulQadeerV1/P17;FataawaHindiyaV1/P7].

2)            Masah will start by placing three fingers of each hand i.e. the three fingers from the little finger – at the front of the head beginning by the hairline. The thumbs and the forefingers, together with the palms, will be held separated from the head.The six fingers will be drawn towards the back in a straight line over the head until the neck is reached.  Thereafter the palms will be drawn forward along the two sides of the head to the front of the head. Remember, in drawing the palms forward, the six fingers (previously used) should not touch the head. The Masah of the head will now be complete. (The thumb and forefinger of each hand that were kept separated will now be used to make Masah of the ears.) Majma’ul Anhar V1/P28.

This second method is the one that is generally practiced upon.

 

Q: What finger should be used to the clean the nose when making Wudhu?

A: The little finger of the left hand should be used to clean the nose. [Umdatul Fiqh V1/P115]
