Day Questions

Some food and medicine packages say "derived from bovine" without further information. Can this be consumed?

If there is no indication that it is from a Muslim, then it is not permissible to consume it. If it is a medicine, then it is permissible only if it is necessary to take the medicine.

Sometimes when I am at the university it is very hard to find a washroom, in which I can perform my ablution without causing any problems, especially in taking off my shoes and my headscarf to wipe the feet and head. So is it permissible to wipe over my shoes and hijab in such a scenario?

It is necessary to wipe on the head and the feet directly, and it is not sufficient to wipe on the scarf, the shoes or the socks. A woman is urged to find a place where she is not seen by men and uncover her head and feet where she can perform the proper way of wudhu.
