Honestly, thank you so much. This is really considerate of you, it’s so nice to have a break and answer some normal questions like I used to a long time ago.

Im doing good alhamdulilah, just hurt my knee because I was being an idiot so im trying to rest it. My day went ok I suppose, just went to uni and stood around in a lab for most of the day and then ive been home reading trying to rest this knee. What really made me laugh today though was seeing somebody drawing eyebrows and winged eyeliner on a Halloween pumpkin, they really cracked me up as they always do. I pray you’re well too anon, thanks once again :)

Sheikh-Ul-Hadith Maulana Yunus Jaunpuri in his library as he says; “Im married to my books and still going single.”
Subhan’Allah, such dedication to the study of hadith!

Arguably the greatest hadith scholar alive today, he’s been in the teaching of this blessed science for over 50 years now. Unfortunately he is very unwell and undergoing dialysis in Madinah, please remember him in your duas and ask Allah to ease his pains and grant him a swift recovery

Here is the question. Is it okay to go to someone to remove all body hair like wax it off by a professional? Example someone getting married and too scared to do it on her own can she go get a full body wax at some place? Would that be haram to do or? Thank you

Mufti Muhammad Ibn Adam al-Kawthari speaks about this towards the end of one of his fatwas on hair removal he states;

"The part of the body which is considered Awra must not be exposed even in front of Muslim women. A female’s Awra in front of other Muslim women is the same to a man’s Awra from other men, which is from the navel up to and including the knees. (Hidaya, 4/461 & Radd al-Muhtar, 6/371)

Therefore, if will be impermissible for other than yourself or your husband to perform the procedure of hair removal in between the navel and knees. It is not permissible to expose one’s Awra except in cases of extreme necessity, such as medication where there is no other alternative.”

I hope that answers your question

Wa alaykum salaam

Ooooh a women’s related issue not too keen on answering those because ya know, despite the long hair and all that im actually a geezer. Throw it my way and i’ll have a bash at it but no promises

Frank,would it haram to be a model? I was asked to be a model, but i dont want to commit haram (im a dude by the way)

Asked by Anonymous

Hmm I wanted to be a model once upon a time, I still think I am but not officially

This is a broad question, can’t really say yes or no because it depends on what kind of modelling you do and what that entails because there’s a lot to consider. Things such as you having to expose your awrah (nakedness), mixing and modelling with women, the products you’re modelling, whether your images are for digital viewing or for printing is also a concern. So unless you know absolutely what it is you will and won’t do it’s hard to say but those are some of the factors you should consider

Can you explain ishtikara to me please? What it involves and how it works?

Asked by Anonymous

Istikhara is basically seeking good in an important matter by asking Allah to give you guidance a It’s very simple. Pray 2 rak’ah nafl salah and the nmake the following dua;

Allaahumma innee astakheeruka bi ilmika wa-astaqdiruka biqudratika wa-as’aluka min fadhlika al-adheem. Fa innaka taqdiru walaa aqdiru. Wa ta’lamu walaa a’alamu wa anta allaamul ghuyoob. Allaahumma in kunta ta’lamu anna haadhal-amr khayrun liy fiy deeniy wa-ma’aashiy wa-aaqibat amriy, fa’qdruhliy wa-yassirh liy thumma baarik liy feehi. Wa in-kunta ta’lamu anna haadhal amr sharrun liy fiy deeniy wa-ma’aashiy was-‘aaqibat amriy. Fa asrifh annee wa-srif ‘anhu. Wa aqdurh liyal khayr hayth kaana thumma a-rdhiniy bihee

Translation: O Allah! Behold I ask You the good through Your Knowledge, and ability through Your Power, and beg (Your favour) out of Your infinite Bounty. For surely You have Power; I have none. You know all; I know not. You are the Great Knower of all things.
O Allah! If in Your Knowledge this matter be good for my faith (Deen), for my livelihood, and for the consequences of my affairs, then ordain it for me, and make it easy for me, and bless me therein.
But if in Your Knowledge, this matter be bad for my faith (Deen) for my livelihood, and for the consequences of my affairs, then turn it away from me, and turn me away therefrom, and ordain for me the good wherever it be, and cause me to be pleased therewith.

You don’t necessarily have to see a dream but you should feel your heart inclining towards something and that’s the direction or decision you should take insha’Allah.

Frank, is it haram if I go to your blog literally everyday and hope to read your new answers from your followers?

Ah well aren’t you a lovely person. It’s not haraam no but the way you’re killing me with this unwarranted flattery might be. God bless ya anon

I always get suicidal thoughts. Not that I would ever do that, I mean I have too many responsibilities and tbh I'm way too strong to ever give up on life. But death doesn't scare me the way it scares people. I'm scared about the afterlife but I sometimes get thoughts like 'I could just jump into the road right now and get run over' or 'how many pills would it take to kill me' is this normal? I've been going through a lot but idk. I really don't know

Asked by Anonymous

They could be intrusive thoughts, I’ve had a few people tell me they’ve had these kinds of ideas and I can’t say I haven’t thought to myself, “I can kill myself and everybody in this car if I just turn the wheel right now” but then I snap out of it like what on earth am I thinking.

Sometimes they’re just things that come into mind that you dismiss but I can’t really say much, it’s not something I know a lot about so if you think it’s an issue you should see somebody who specialises in this area

Hi,so in my politics course they always say something bad about Islam because of the current issues,I don't really know if I should explain that it's not like that but in the end they are ignorant and wouldnt believe either,it's so sad,hate them:(

Stand up and speak up, you can’t just say everyone’s ignorant so no point trying to explain to them

I still sympathize with the anon for having to hear that she is a burden though. That is a really painful thing to have your parent of the opposite gender say to you and does affect family relations and personal growth and confidence up to an extent.

Asked by Anonymous

Parents often say a lot of things to their children that they don’t mean, especially when that child disregards any respect for their parent and is argumentative towards them. Parents are people too and don’t people say things they don’t mean in the heat of the moment? Let’s not forget the spiteful things we say to our parents that they endure too. Also the parent being of the opposite gender doesn’t make a difference on how damaging it is. My point is that those comments and even worse from your parents can be avoided if you don’t engage in arguing with them, I know because believe it or not ive been there too

So me and my father have a really negative relationship. I don't really get along with him and it's because we have such different viewpoints etc. There was a time when he told someone that 'daughters are the biggest burdens.' When we argue he tells me that it's his house, he has been putting the food on the table for so many years etc and uses that against me. If he was old and I was looking after him I would never bring anything like that up. I feel like I'm going to end up hating him.

You’re probably not going to like this but your dad has a point in that he has provided for you and im pretty sure he’s not using that against you but pointing out that he’s done so much for you that you at least owe him some respect in his own home, he’s your father and if he has done so much for you don’t think that he’s harbouring any malice against you.

Simply don’t argue with your dad, you’ll meet a lot of people in life that you have conflicting viewpoints with but you have to patiently put it behind you if you can’t discuss and resolve it without arguing, your dad is one of those people who you should have the most patience with. Too often we clash with people over differences because we’re more willing to be argumentative than be bigger people exercising patience, we forget to sit civilly and find common ground with the people we’re supposed to love

When people say love yourself... How is one supposed to go about that? I mean I'm okay with myself but I have stuff to work on too. The loneliness is just overwhelming at times though, I feel like I'm just waiting for someone even though I don't need anyone. I'm strong enough to handle my own and be the responsible daughter of the house then why do I always feel lonely and down? I get miserable all of a sudden and I feel it even if I'm with a bunch of friends or around people. Especially then.

Asked by Anonymous

Loneliness is a part of human nature, everybody wants to feel wanted and loved like they belong somewhere but often this loneliness is due to some lacking in our self-acceptance and self-belonging. You love yourself by putting yourself first, doing things that make you happy and setting out to do things that will benefit you. It’s not unusual to feel lonely around people, sometimes it’s just because that interaction at that time isn’t doing anything for you so spend some time in self-reflection or go find people and activities that will stimulate your interests again because I honestly feel like loneliness is closely related to monotony and mundane cycles of life

you know the verses that speak of Allah turning your bad deeds into good ones if you did major sins? they say that you have to be very serious about not doing those sins again and make tawbah and i want to make tawbah but i dont know if im being serious enough. does this even make sense? sorry

Asked by Anonymous

As long as you sincerely feel remorseful over your sin, resolve to never commit it again and ask Allah to forgive you that is sufficient. Seeking forgiveness is not a difficult thing, I always say it’s literally like a delete button
