Day Questions

I am researching about Shia Islam. My wife is Sunni and is not interested in studying Shia Islam. I want to know if she is still considered a Muslim.

Islam is submitting with the two testimonies. Iman depends on believing in the Wilayah of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them).

I have been facing problems in urinating for the last many years. Even after I have completely passed urine, some drops of urine continuously keep coming out after I leave the bathroom. I am facing difficulty in praying as I cannot change my clothes again and again. What should I do?

One should observe the tahārah of the clothes during the prayer as the prayer is void with najis clothes. With respect to wudhū, you can perform the prayer at a time the urine is not released from you, even by delaying it to the end of the prescribed time – but not beyond it – and even if you shorten the prayers by omitting the second chapter after al-Fatiha and by omitting the recommended acts of the prayer. If this is not possible, then it is permissible to offer the prayer even with the release of the urine but one should join the Dhuhr and Asr prayers with one wudhū, and similarly the Maghrib and Ishā prayers with one wudhū.

If the father is a Muslim and the mother is a Christian, can their son lead congregational prayers if they were not married before he was born?

If the parents of the child were married – according to the each of their religion that they followed at the time the child was conceived, then he can lead the prayer when he becomes an adult.
