Day Questions

If I deposit an amount in a bank and in return, after some time, I get an amount which is larger than my originally deposited amount, will it be considered Riba/Usury?

Yes, it is considered as Riba and thus prohibited, since the permissible loan is when the borrower returns to the lender the same amount, without any stipulated interest. This applies if the bank is owned by Muslims. If it is not, then it is permissible to receive interest from it.

Is there any kaffarah for a lady to pull out her hair in grief and mourning?

It is prohibited for the woman to do so. The kaffarah for doing so is either giving ten needy people 900 grams of food each - staple food items such as dates, flour and rice - or clothing them; if neither of these are possible, then she should fast for three consecutive days.

My husband would like to have a temporary wife to fulfill certain urges. As a wife, do I have any right to say no?

The refusal of the wife does not prevent a valid temporary marriage contract.
