Troubled relation with sister in law


Question Assalamu alaykum. First of all, thank you for your assistance. I would like to know about my rights regarding my sister-in-law. She has been living with us for a long time. From the beginning, she never helped me with the tasks, she comes and goes as she wishes, but she comes at lunch time with everything ready. She just does some things when my husband is at home. She does not show any respect for me and takes every chance to make that clear; for instance, she leaves empty bottles in the middle for me to throw them, or when I have just finished to clean the kitchen, she leaves a gla......

Celebrating the Prophet's birthday according to some scholars


Question: What is the ruling regarding those who celebrate the birthday of the Prophet, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam? Fatwa: All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord of the Worlds.

Devotion to uncor-rected evil is in the nature of devils. But, returning to good and correctness after sli...... More

How can a heart which is connected to Allah ...... More
