Answer: Yes, she can. In this situation/case, husband have to stand infront where wife should stand behind in row. It should be remembered that, if husband and wife stand side by side in jamayat the Swalat will not be correct/appropriate.
Question: Will/can it be zaayiz/legal/permissible to meet with so called religious brother, religious father, religious maternal uncle, Religious uncle?
Answer: For any adult women the above mentioned people are supported/ counted to be as adult men. So it is not zaayiz/permissible to meet with them, rather it is Haarwam.
Question: What is the order/command/rule/law in regarding to keep beard in case of man?
Answer: It is Fa’rd to keep at least one handful beard for man. It is Haarwam and qaabirwah gwunah to cut or shave below this amount. French cutting, wahabi cutting, jaamati cutting, chinese cutting or any cutting to right, left or below chin to make design is Haarwam and Qaabirwah gwunah. It is suppose to mock with/make fun with beard. So keeping at least one handful beard is legislatively Fa’rd and ideally it is Sunnah. To do contrary/opposite to it is disobedience and the cause of gwunah.
Question: Is it zaayiz/permissible to meet with, come infront and to speak in mobile with the husband of sister? Again will it be permissible to come infront,to meet with or to speak in mobile in a low voice with the husband’s younger brother or brother-in-law?
Answer: Now-a-days people are not giving importance to this Masyala/rules. It is totally Haarwam and not zaayiz/permissible to come infront or to meet with or to speak in low voice in mobile with sister’s husband or sister-in-law. Similiarly it is also Haarwam and impermissible/not zaayiz to come infront or to meet with or to speak in low voice in mobile with husband elder or younger brother or brother-in-law. There is a Haadis Shareef that, “ Brother-in-law is comparable to death”.(Mishkat Shareef) So everybody should be concious regarding this matter.
Question: In our locality/area one speaker told that it is Kufaa’r to say “Na’rwayee Riswaalat-Yaa Rwasoolallah” in his speech. We are now confused for his speech. So it would be very grateful if we are made known to what is the rules/order of Sharia’h in regards to say, “Na’rwayee Riswaalat-Yaa Rwasoolallah”.
Answer: To say, “Na’rwayee Riswaalat-Yaa Rwasoolallah”is not Kufaa’r even. Rather those who will tell that uttering these words are kufaa’r, they will make themselves kaafir and Murtaad.
Beause, the objective to say “Na’rwayee Riswaalat-Yaa Rwasoolallah” is to express joy and be delighted to have the good luck for being the Ummah of the NAABI and RWASOOL of the whole universe, WHO is Saayidul Mu’rsaaleen, Emaamul Mu’rsaleen, Khwatamun Naabiyeen, Noor-e-moojaa’sam, Habeebullah Hujur paak Swallallahu A’alaihi Waa Sallam.
Question: Can women perform the salat (prayer) of ‘Eid?
Answer: There is no salat of ‘Eid and Jumu’a for women. Because Jamat is a condition for ‘Eid and Jumu’a salat. According to the Hanafi Ma’zhab, there must be minimum three musolli except Imam. Otherwise, ‘Eid and Jumu’a salat won’t be completed. And, there is a fatwa that, it is not allowed for women to go to masjid or ‘Eidgah to perform the Swalat of either eid, or jumua, panjegana, tarawih, or any type of Swalat. According to aam fatwa, it is Makrooh Ta’hrimi. And also kufri by khwas Fatwa. So, if women-folk go for swalat of ‘Eid, then they will be gunahgar by strong gunah. (to know details about this, read Al-Baiyinaat 11th episode, there have been submitted about 65 dalils) (Dalils: Umdatul Qwari, Shor’he Bukhari, Durrul Mukhtar, Fatwaye Tatarkhania, Khulasatul Fatwa, Fotuhul Qwadir, ‘Alamgiri)
Question: Someone say that if niyat of both the kaza sawom of Rwamadan and nafal sawom of Shawwal month is done together in Shawwal month at the same day, then both will be performed coincidently and also one wil get sowab of both the sawom. How much is correct what they say?
Answer: The remark of them who say that the undone kaza sawom of Rwamadan and nafalsawom of Shawwal will be performed coincidently if done and sowab will also be achieved is totally fancied, wrong and proofless. The correct fatwa is that if together the kaza sawom of Rwamadan and nafal sawom of Shawwal is performed in the same day, then both of the sawom will not be performed and at the same time sowab will not also be achieved. Rather. Only the kaza sawom of Rwamadan will be performed. Nafal sawom of Shawwal will not be performed. Because, to perform kaza sawom of the undone faraj sawom of Rwamadan is faraj. And the sawom of Shawwal month is nafal.
Question: What is the fajilat (importance) of the night of Eid?
Answer: Dua (prayer) is accepted specially in five nights in a year. Among them, there are two nights of the two eid. It is very much better to pass this night satying awake and doing ibadat-prayer, reciting tasbih, Quran Shareef, Dorud Shareef and doing jikir-azkar. Allah Pak will accept the good wishes (maksud) of heart if these are informed . It’s is there in Hadis Shareef that, Saiyeedul Mursalin, Imamul Mursalin, Habeebullah Huzur Pak Swallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam He has said that, “the heart of the man who will be rapt in doing ibadat (prayer) staying awake in the night of Eid-ul-fitr and Eid-ul Azha will not die at that day when all other hearts will die.” The meaning of this-Although other heart will have tension at the day qiyamat, the heart of the man who will stay awake in the nights of the two Eid will stay in peace.

Question: In solat, is it allowed to follow (do iktida) behind the imam, khatib who watch tv?
Answer: In shariah, it is haram to see anything like tv, vcp, dis, vcr etc which are spreading photo and nudity. So, the imam khatib who watch these are extreme fasik or kabirah sinner.

Question: Depositing 500tk or 1000tk by instalment in the DPS account of Islami Bank, the bank gives a definite amount of profit after five years or ten years. Will it be halal to take the profit?

Question: Are the books of Taorat, Injil and Jabur stiil existing? Can you inform please?
Answer: These kitabs (books) are not still unchanged. Jews-Christians have deformed all of these from the real books. The bible which can be found at present is not the real Injil Shareef. Christians have changed it. So, at present if anyone quotes from these books, then that will not be allowed (jayiz) to accept. (Various books of Tafseer and Tarikh)
Question: What is the reason and history behind saying [ KARRAMALLAHU WAJHAHU](may Allah Pak specially make His face mubarak luminous) with the name of Hazrat Ali Karramallahu Wajhahu Rwadiallahu Ta’ala Anhu?
Answer: Kharii, one of the 72 rejected gumrah (deviated) jahannami (hell-dweller) sects (firqa) had declared rebellion against Hazrat Ali Karrmallahu Wajhahu Rwadiallahu Ta’ala Anhu. They said [SAWWADALLAHU WAJHAHU] (that means may Allah Pak make His face Mubarak gloomy) with His name Mubarak to disregard Him. Nawuzubillah!
Protesting the khariji’s despicable and injustice false accusation Tabiyee Khalifa Hazrat Umar Ibne Abdul Aziz Rahmatullahi Alaihi He himself has made it mandatory to say KARRAMALLAHU WAJHAHU with the name Mubarak of Hazrat ‘Aalee Rwadiallahu Ta’ala Anhu during His khilafat period. From then His name Mubarak is being read by this way that, Saiyeeduna Hazrat Ali Karramallahu Wajhahu Rwadiallahu Ta’ala Anhu. (Tarikhut Twabari)
