Maintaining family unity

Q: The sons in a particular family insist that for the sake of keeping family unity, their wives should invite the entire family (their mother, siblings and siblings spouses and kids) for a meal. And that their mother and sister are entitled to stay a few days every once in a while at the son’s house. If the daughter in laws complain about the amount of work it takes to host a meal for so many people, the sons become very angry and fight with their wives until they agree to host.

There has already been so many divorces in this family. Who is right and who is wrong? The sons, their mother and sister for constantly imposing on the daughter in laws or the daughter in laws for not wanting to entertain guests?

Entering Makkah Mukarramah from Taaif without ihraam

Q: A family coming from Taaif entered the meeqaat without ihraam, then they left the meeqaat and re-entered it from Masjid Sayyidah Aaishah with ihraam. What would be the ruling in this case? Would they have to give damm?

Deen and ibaadat being affected due to getting involved in a haraam relationship

Q: Someone living abroad falls in love with someone. They talk online. If they are into this relationship, will that be a reason for their duas not being answered from allah, even if they offer tahajjud and make sincere duas? 

Girl's party feeding after nikaah

Q: The Sunnah of waleemah takes place through the husband feeding, after the nikaah is consummated.

In all the nikaahs of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam), the waleemah was always carried out by Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam). None of the wives of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) nor their families contributed towards the waleemah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) at the time of their nikaah.

Similarly, Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) encouraged the men of Sahaabah to carry out the Sunnah of waleemah at the time of their nikaah. Hence, we understand that the Sunnah practice of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in regard to waleemah is for the husband (boy’s party) to host the entire waleemah.

There is no mention made in the Hadith of a joint waleemah being found in the nikaahs of the Sahaabah (Radhiyallahu Anhum) and Taabi’een (Rahimahumullah). Hence, the practice of a joint waleemah is against the Mubaarak Sunnah of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) and should therefore be omitted.

With regards to the above... Please advise on below

Assalamu Alaikum wa rehmatullahi wa barakatuhu

Maaf I wanted to ask if to do this to prevent/avoid the functions of the girls side to feed... it won't be possible then too?

Also it's so so common for the girls side to feed (what is called ths reception) but it's not part of sunnah. But if you feed before the nikaah like a tea, or something like that? Because the girls side don't have an option to call so many people in the walima.

Actually it just crossed my mind and I thought I'll ask. Not questioning or getting a leeway. It's just abit difficult especially now when these things have become so common and how to go about dealing with it.

Authenticity of the Hadith, "Ikhtilaaf of the Ulama is rahmat"

Q: Some of the Ulama from Deoband consider animated pictures as permissible and other Ulama are totally opposite to that extent that they declared it haraam. I have heard that "Ulama ka ikhtalif rehmat hai".

Will I be sinful if I follow the Ulama who regard animated pictures as permissible?

Wearing a tie

Q: What is the Islamic viewpoint of a Muslim student wearing a tie if it's part of the school uniform policy? Should the parents make an issue and say it's against our religion or is it not so serious?

Reference for the hadith regarding the malaaikah not coming close to a woman whose hair is not covered

Q: In one of your fatwa you mentioned a hadith... It is reported in the Ahaadith that a woman whose hair is not covered, the malaaikah do not come close to her.

I want a reference for this hadith. I can't find one.

Nafaqah of a woman who came from a wealthy family

Q: If the husband is poor and the wife is rich, the wife gets the nafaqa of average quality. Does this means it will be greater than that of what the husband's family is used togetting and less than that of the wife's family?

The problem is that if the husband is poor, how can he provide with greater than what his family is used to?
