Day Questions

I started working on December last year, and got my first pay around January this year. I tried saving since then but did not have much and I am not sure if any money remained for a full year or not. I began saving again last year in August and now I do have savings. Shall I consider August as my Khums year-end or January?

The beginning of the khums fiscal year is the day one makes a profit, even when he was a child. Based on this, it does not matter when you started your work. Since you do not know this day, you should set the khums fiscal year by reconciliation (Musalahah) with the Marja’ or his agent.

Was the revolt of Mukhtar bin Abu Ubaida as per the instructions of Imam Zain-ul-Abideen (peace be upon him)?

There is no historical text that states that Mukhtar began his revolution by the order of Imam Zain-ul-Abideen (peace be upon him). Yes, some narrations praised what Mukhtar did.

Seeing that the significance behind the iddah period is so that the father can be identified adequately if the woman becomes pregnant, and contraception almost eliminates the chances of pregnancy, is there any need of the ʿiddah period when using contraception?

<p style="text-align: left;">The reason behind the waiting period is not necessarily identifying the father if the woman is pregnant. If this was the reason, then it would have been sufficient for Almighty Allah the Divine Legislator to consider one menstrual cycle as a waiting period and not any longer duration. Almighty Allah knows the actual reason behind such legislation.<br /> Therefore, the iddah must be observed even if contraception was used.</p>

If I have done a temporary marriage contract with a man who is in different country, if we were to end the contract, how do we go on about that?

<p style="text-align: left;">He can forgo the remaining time of the contract, and he can also assign the wife as his agent in forgoing the rest of the duration of the marriage.</p>
