Day Questions

Are Muslims allowed to go to the cinema?

It is permissible to watch movies in the cinema unless it involves committing a prohibition like arousing unlawful desires or other prohibitions.

Please explain to me the contract of temporary marriage (Mutah).

<p style="text-align: left;">Mutah is a marriage contract between a man and a woman where they agree on establishing a marital relationship with the stipulation of a dower, for a certain period of time. The said relation ends when the mentioned time elapses. Muslims have agreed on this legislation, but the second caliph prohibited it during his caliphate, and this became the reason for the differences in opinion on it, as history and jurisprudential books explained.</p>

I have been unemployed and looking for work for some time, and it is very worrying. Is there any specific supplication or verses of the Quran to help me?

It has been reported in some narrations that repeatedly reciting Surah Al- Qadr (chapter 97 of the holy Quran), and repeatedly seeking repentance increases sustenance.

I want to fast for two months as a Kaffara for breaking one day’s fast 23 years ago. Should I keep them continuously? Or should I fast for one month together and remaining 30 casually?

<p style="text-align: left;">The Kaffara for deliberate breaking one day of fasting is feeding sixty needy people. Alternatively, it can be fasting two consecutive months. If the fasting begins on the first day of a lunar month, it is sufficient to fast one day from the second month to satisfy the condition of fasting consecutively, and one can separate the fasting of the remaining days as he wishes after that.<br /> If fasting started after the beginning of the lunar month, then based on compulsory precaution, 31 consecutive days must be fasted. The remaining fasts do not have to be consecutive.</p>
