Day Questions

I just wanted to know if dancing is haram. I know that its haram to dance in weddings and in front of others and you have to be married to dance and that is only in front of your husband, but what if you are not married, is it completely that you are not allowed to dance at all?

Dancing is not prohibited by itself. If it was associated with a prohibition like sexual excitement to other than the husband then it is prohibited. If it is based on musical rhythm then it is unlawful based on compulsory precaution.

Is it permissible for a man to satisfy his wife with sex toys? Can he use a condom which is designed to arouse the woman more?

It is not permissible to use sex toys that are separate from the body in such a way that the enjoyment is because of the toy. Using the condom in such a way that the enjoyment is due to the penis itself is permissible.

If a body is decomposed beyond recognition or badly burnt, how can we perform Ghusl on it?

If Ghusl cannot be performed or it leads to the dead body breaking up and damaging it, then it is not mandatory. If the dead body has not deteriorated to such a level then Ghusl is mandatory.

Can we adopt Sufi practices of Irfan?

It is not right to depend on other than the holy Quran and the reliable narrations of the Prophet and the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) in the matters of religion, including Irfan. There are many such narrations that explain the recommended worship acts and the kind of relation a man should have with Almighty Allah. Muslims are encouraged to gain the religious and godly knowledge from these original sources only.
