Continuing the tawaaf after salaah

Women going to the Haram for salaah

Q:

1. I heard that it is more virtuous for a female to pray at the hotel than praying in the Masjid Nabawi or at the Kabah. Is this true?

2. If so, will she be sinful for praying in these Masjids without need?

3. Also, would it be better for her to stay in the hotel than to perform nafl tawafs?

Packing Zam Zam in one's bag when returning from umrah or hajj

Q: When coming back from Hajj/Umrah, Saudi has a rule that each pilgrim may only bring with him 5 litres of zamzam, packed in a special box. People say that the reason for the rule is that they want to avoid water packed in normal bags from spilling on the luggage bands. If a person secretly packs extra zamzam in his normal bags, will he be sinful for breaking the 5 litre rule even if he packs it in a way that he is sure there is no leakage?

Using beard growing oil

Q: My question is regarding beard transplantation. I’m almost 26, I don’t have a beard on my face, just a little under my chin. I have desire to grow a beard and In Sha Allah grow a healthy beard according to the sunnah in the next few years. Is it allowed to go for a beard transplantation or use any beard growing oil on face? Will it be against the creation of Allah?

The knowledge of Allah Ta'ala

Q: I believe in all of Allah’s names and attributes, I accept he is the one and only, none other deserves to be worshipped, if you do worship besides Allah such as a hindu God or do grave worship, you are not a Muslim, rather the contrary, first of all, I believe nothing is like Allah, he is incomparable, but my question is essentially, Allah knows everything we know, so does that mean there is a similarity?, Allah’s knowledge is unlimited and there are no mistakes, but ours is the opposite.

Also, another similar question, the Quran is Allah’s speech, his attribute, so is that incomparable as well, doesn’t that share similarity with other Arabic books, they may use the same words for instance, so a similarity, is it not?

I asked it on a forum last year, these same questions, a brother said, Allah knows what we know, but his knowledge is unlimited and is always right, ours is limited and we can make mistakes, so we share some things but overall, they are dissimilar, incomparable, he also said the same for my second question. Essentially, Allah’s words are incomparable overall, very dissimilar, but they share somethings with other books. He said something along the lines of that. I’m not sure what is right, hence why I’m asking this question.

Live broadcasting of animate objects

Q: I recently came across the following with regards to live broadcasting:

Shaykh Mufti Taqi Usmani (may Allah preserve him) and many other scholars have declared that live broadcastings of images do not fall within the ambit of picture-making (taswir). A picture is something that is permanent and static, whilst the image broadcasted live is not permanent, hence cannot be termed a picture. A live broadcast is in reality a reflection of the actual image, similar to seeing an image in a mirror. Therefore, if an image of a human or animal is broadcasted live, then this does not fall into the unlawful picture-making. It will be permitted to broadcast something live or view a live programme, provided the content of the programme is lawful (halal). (Taqrir Tirmidhi, 2/351) http://www.daruliftaa.com/node/5611

In view of the above:

1. Is it permissable to watch the haramain live channels not on television e.g. YouTube? 

2. Is it permissable to watch these channels live from television?
