Day Questions

Is it allowed to have a life insurance as the dower (mahr)? It requires monthly payments and results in a cash pay-out in case of death.

If one makes his wife the beneficiary on his life insurance policy then it is not valid to consider the paid amount after his death as dower. It is considered as a will.

Is a non-believer in the imamah of the twelve Imams najis or not?

No, he is not. All the believers in Almighty Allah and the Messenger of Allah Muhammad (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) are Muslims and tahir.

Can I divorce my wife based on the fact that I do not like her or should there be other reasons?

The divorce is the right of the husband. In order to be fair, one should not choose to divorce his wife unless it is necessary. It is better to try to fix the relationship with the wife as much as possible, since a divorced woman is subjected to social and psychological harm more than a divorced man.
