Does using ointment break one's fast?

Things which go into the body from the pores of the skin don’t break the fast.
Thus, water that you wash yourself and a kind of moisturiser or oil applied to body doesn’t affect the fast and doesn’t break the fast. For example; eyeliner doesn’t break the fast. But if one sees the colour and the trace of it in the spit then it changes the condition and breaks the fast. But if you don’t see the trace or the colour of it in the spit, it doesn’t break the fast.

A medication, applied on an open wound and moisturized thus absorbed through the skin inside of the head or absorbed but doesn’t reach into the head and stays under the skin, doesn’t break the fast. But a medication applied on an open wound like this and which is doubtful whether it reaches inside of the head. This kind of a doubtful application, according to Imam-i Azam, breaks the fast. Because this kind of a medication penetrates inside of the body.
According to Imamayn this doesn’t break the fast.

Dua for conceiving

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 42 Surah Shuraa verses 49-50:
49 To Allah belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. He creates what He wills (and plans). He bestows (children) male or female according to His Will (and Plan).
50 Or He bestows both males and females, and He leaves barren whom He will: for He is Full of knowledge and power.

In light of the above Aayah of the Glorious Quran, it should be the belief of the believers, who truly believe in Allah and the Last Day, that the allotment of children is entirely upto Allah Subhanah. He gives males to whom He pleases, He gives females to whom He pleases, He gives males and females to whom He pleases, and if He Wills, He leaves some childless (as a test from Him).

Does laughing break one's wudu?

here are different levels of being amused and each has its own ruling:

[1] "Tabassum", merely smiling, this will not break the Salah or a person's Wudu. One should however try avoiding this as it is against the manner in which this act of worship is to be performed.

[2] "Dahik", this is very light laughter that can only be heard by the person laughing himself. It will not break Wudu but will break the Salah.

[3] "Qahqaha", laughter that if there was a person next to you it could be heard by him. This extent of laughing will not only break the Salah but also that person's Wudu.

The proof for this is:

1. The Prophet was leading a prayer and a blind man was walking and fell into a well, upon which some of the sahaba laughed while in prayer. When the prayer ended the Prophet ordered them to renew their ablution and then pray again.

2. The Prophet said, "Gurgulous laugh in prayer invalidates the prayer and the ablution."

The ten blessed animals which will enter Paradise (jannah)?

“Some interpreters of the Quran said, ‘There are 10 kinds of animals which will enter Paradise which are as follows:

1- The Buraaq (an animal with wings, that is bigger than a donkey and smaller than a mule) which the Prophet sallallaahu `alayhi wa sallam ( may Allaah exalt his mention ) rode on the night of Al-Israa’ (Ascension).

2- The she-camel of Saalih may Allaah exalt his mention which was hamstrung by those who denied the truth.

3- The donkey of ‘Uzayr whom Allaah The Almighty caused to die for one hundred years and then Allaah The Almighty revived him and he found his donkey next to him as it was.

4- The calf, which the Prophet Ibraaheem (Abraham), may, Allaah exalt his mention, slaughtered for his angel guests.

5- The ram with which Allaah The Almighty ransomed Ismaa’eel (Ishmael) may Allaah exalt his mention from being slaughtered according to the vision seen by Prophet Ibraaheem may Allaah exalt his mention.

Is sehri compulsory for a nafil fast

Sehri is not compulsory either during fasts of Ramadhan or Nafl fasts (Rozas), although it is a great Sunnah and a source of great blessings and we should have it.

Since it isn't compulsory for any kinds of fasts, your Roza will be valid if you skip Sehri but you would be deprived of blessings and following the Sunnah of our beloved Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) so a person should try their best to have Sehri.

What time does Maghrib prayer end?

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The time for Maghrib lasts until the twilight has faded.”

i.e., the time for Maghrib starts immediately after the time for ‘Asr ends, which is when the sun sets, until the twilight or red afterglow has faded. When the red afterglow has disappeared from the sky, the time for Maghrib ends and the time for ‘Isha’ begins. Defining this time by the clock varies according to the season. When you see that the red afterglow has disappeared from the horizon, this is a sign that the time for Maghrib has ended.

Are step brothers and sisters allowed to get married?

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 23:
23 Prohibited to you (for marriage) are: your mother, daughters, sisters, father's sisters, mother's sisters, brother's daughters, sister's daughters, foster-mothers (who gave you suck), foster-sisters, your wives' mothers, your step-daughters under your guardianship born of your wives to whom ye have gone in, no prohibition if ye have not gone in; (those who have been) wives of your sons proceeding from your loins, and two sisters in wedlock at one and the same time except for what is past; for Allah is Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.

If a man has a son from a previous marriage, and happens to marry a woman who has a daughter from another marriage..the son of the man and the daughter of the woman (or vice versa) are non-mehrams to each other and it would be absolutely lawful for the two to seek to marry each other in Shariah, if indeed they wish to do so.

Can we listen to Quran without wudu?

Listening to Qur'an is a recommended act in Islam. Allah Says (interpretation of meaning): {So, when the Qur'ân is recited, listen to it, and be silent that you may receive mercy. [i.e. during the compulsory congregational prayers when the Imâm (of a mosque) is leading the prayer (except Sûrat Al-Fâtiha), and also when he is delivering the Friday-prayer Khutbah].}[7:204]. Al Bukhari and Muslim reported: Narrated Ibn Massoud that the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said to him: "Recite some Qur'an for me (so that I can listen to it)." Ibn Massoud said: 'How? I recite it for you and it was revealed to you?' The Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam) said: "I like listening to it from others." The person listening to the Qur'an does not have to be pure and does not have to make Wudu. This rule applies to the one listening directly to someone reciting Qur'an as well as from a cassette, a computer or any other device.

Eating or drinking forgetfully while fasting

A fasting person does not invalidate his fast if he does something to break his fast either in ignorance or out of forgetfulness.

Allah says: “There is no blame on you for what you do by mistake, but only for what your hearts have deliberately resolved upon.” [Sûrah al-Ahzâb: 5]

Also: “Our Lord! Do not take us to task if we forget or make a mistake.” [Sûrah al-Baqarah: 286]

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Allah has pardoned my people for what they do by mistake or out of forgetfulness and for what they are coerced into doing.” [Sunan Ibn Mâjah (2043) and authenticated by al-Albânî in Sahîh al-Jâmi` (1731)]

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever forgets he is fasting and eats or drinks something should complete his fast, for it is merely that Allah has given him food and drink.” [Sahîh al-Bukhârî (1933) and Sahîh Muslim (1155)]

Does injection break the fast?

Such injections are allowed during the fast, and the fast does not break.
This is because the medicine does not directly go into the stomach or the brain, so it’s like a snake bite which does not break the fast.
However, if the injection went direct into the stomach, like a stroke victim who can’t swallow food so a tube is fitted to his throat, and liquid food is given to him through that tube, then that would break the fast.

Does masturbation break the fast?

Masturbation is one of the things that invalidate the fast, and the one who does that has to make up the day that he broke his fast. He must also repent from this great sin.

Shaykh Ibn Baaz said:

Masturbation during the day in Ramadaan invalidates the fast if it is done deliberately and semen is emitted as a result. The person must make up the day if that was an obligatory fast, and he must repent to Allaah, because masturbation is not permissible whether one is fasting or not. It is the action which people call the “secret habit”.

Fataawa al-Shaykh Ibn Baaz, 15/267

Shaykh Ibn ‘Uthaymeen (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

If a fasting person masturbates and ejaculates, this breaks his fast, and he has to make up the fast of the day on which he masturbated, but he does not have to offer any expiation, because the expiation is only required of one who has intercourse. And he has to repent from what he did.

Does nail, hair or beard cutting break the fast?

These actions are not things that are obligatory for the fasting person in particular, but they are not things that go against fasting either. Rather the fasting person refrains from eating, drinking and having intercourse, which are things that invalidate the fast. He should also keep away from sins and bad things, such as backbiting and spreading slander, which reduce the reward for fasting. But with regard to cutting the nails and shaving the pubic hair, these are matters that pertain to the fitrah (natural state of man), which the Lawgiver said should not be left for more than forty days. They have nothing to do with the soundness of one’s fast.
