Day Questions

Which takbeers are obligatory and which are recommended in prayers?

The obligatory takbeer is only the takbeerat'ul-ihtam. The rest of the takbeers are recommended and not obligatory.

Are Muslims allowed to wear leather jackets or belts that are not made by Muslims?

It is permissible to wear it except in prayers. It is considered to be Najis so one should purify whatever it touches with dampness, like if one touches it with wet hands.

What is Wilayat Takweeniyah?

In the Quran and authentic narrations, we find that prophets and their vicegerents suspended the usual laws of nature, like when Jesus cured the blind and the lepers, and when the vicegerent of Prophet Solomon brought the throne of Queen Belqees faster than the twinkling of an eye. There is no doubt that similar acts took place by our Prophet and the Imams (peace be upon them) as many authentic narrations indicate.
