Lineage of a child born through marrying one's mahram

Q: If a person married his mahram and children were then born from this relationship, will the nasab (lineage) of the children be established from the father? Likewise, will the ruling be the same in the situation where a person married a woman who was haraam upon him because of hurmat-e-musaaharah, ridaa'at, etc. Also, can mufti saheb please explain if there is any difference in the ruling if the husband knew that she was haraam or didn't know?

Performing salaah on the plane when passing different time zones

Q: My question is related to Salaah and flying by air.

Sometime ago we flew from Australia to Canada. We set out at around 7.00 am on Tuesday, and we reached at around 7.15 am Tuesday, on the same date. The flight was 17 hours, and in this time we didn't read any Salaah. In fact, the next Salaah we read was Dhuhr almost 24 hours later. Is this correct?

However, when we were returning to Australia, we lost a day, so basically a whole day's worth of Salaah became qadha. We jumped a whole day, or we lost a whole day, when we were crossing the international date line. How does this work? How do we calculate Salaah in these situations? Were we supposed to read any Salaah on the way to Canada keeping in mind the Hadith about after Dajjaal comes one day will be equal to a year, and so forth. Hence Salaah would have been calculated according to its normal time, as Nabi Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Salam had advised his Sahaabah? 

Husband replying "Fine, take it" when the wife asks him for divorce

Q: After asking my husband for talaaq for the umpteenth time (because of consistent pathological lying, not giving any of my rights as a wife, not respecting me, tarnishing my reputation with his friends and mistresses, giving his first wife a comfortable life and not even giving me any of my expenses, mentally and financially abusing me, etc.) yesterday he finally said "Fine, take it (the talaaq)". Prior to that we didnt have any relationship for the last 8 months. Afterwards when I asked him to give me talaaq in front of my parents, he is saying he will give it when the time is right, and knowing him, he will always find excuses since he doesn't wish me to move on with my life and he wants to have full control over our son (though he hardly pays for the latter's expenses), that's the only reason he doesn't want to give me talaaq. I want to know if the talaaq he gave in the first instance is valid.

Feeding poor people for breaking an oath

Q: I broke few oaths made in my lifetime. In order to do the kaffarah, I have to feed 10 persons 2 times or buy clothes or fast for 3 days. Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah, I can afford to sponsor food for 10 persons twice. But it’s difficult for me to feed the same 10 persons twice. Can I feed 20-30 persons once or shall I fast 3 days (easiest option)?

Applying for a job in Radiology

Q: Can I work in this job?

“Radiology Support Workers are valued members of the Radiology department. We are now seeking to expand this team and are looking to recruit a caring, hardworking and enthusiastic individual. You should be reliable, self-motivated and flexible with excellent communication and inter-personal skills.

You will work closely with Radiologists, Radiographers, Administrative staff and other Radiographic Assistants. Duties will be in all areas of the department and include; assisting with patients and examinations, room preparation, data input onto the department computer system ordering and maintenance of department stock, general housekeeping, undertaking clerical duties and liaising with wards and clinicians.

We are a forward-looking department committed to training and role development.”

Amongst the requirments of working in a hospital is obviously respecting all people and treating all like equals. I worry that if I apply for the job saying that I agree with this, I’d be lying, because realistically it isnt true. For example, men and women arent equal and another example - what if a patient/co worker is homosexual, I dont agree and respect their haraam practices.
