Day Questions

Is Iqamah compulsory before the prayers?

Reciting the Iqamah is recommended and not obligatory.

When I wipe my head in wudhu, I make a parting in my hair in order for the scalp to be wiped with the wetness of the wudhu. Do I need to do this?

It is not necessary to wipe in this way. It is sufficient to wipe over the hair of the front of the head and it is not obligatory for the dampness of the wudhu to reach the scalp.

I am having a very hard time trying to figure out which hadith books are reliable; can you recommend any to me?

The books of narrations combine different kinds of hadiths. There are authenticated, acceptable and weak ones in each book. Differentiating between them is not possible except by the scholars who are well-versed in the criteria of determining the reliability of the narrators.
