Day Questions

If a person commits an act which his marja deems to be prohibited, and on Judgment Day it is discovered that the act was not actually a sin after all, will this person not be punished for it since the act was not prohibited? Or will he get punished because he disobeyed the edict of his marja?

The said person is not considered as disobedient, but is liable for proceeding to commit an act that he was informed to be a sin. An example of this is if a person drinks from a glass thinking it to be wine, but it turns out to be water.

After having been granted one's wish by Allah Almighty, how long should one continue to offer the thanksgiving prayer?

The said prayer is not obligatory, and it can be repeated as many times as one desires. An individual is expected to feel the Godly bounties that surround him day and night. Such feeling is not limited to the time after granting the wishes. It was reported that it is recommended for an individual to say everyday seven times "Alhamdulillah ala kulli ne'matin kanat aw hiya kaainah" (Praise Allah for every bounty that has been granted and for those which will be granted)".

If one does not have time in the morning to perform Friday Ghusl, can he perform it before Fajr, or even in the evening on Thursday after Maghrib, when it is considered as the night eve of Friday? Does this Ghusl compensate the need to perform Wudhu?

The ghusl on Friday is not legislated to be performed before Fajr on Friday or after Maghrib on Thursday, and as such will not compensate the requirement to perform Wudhu.

If a mother has done wrong, and her son points it out to her causing her to become upset with him, has the son sinned?

Merely having differences in opinion with the parents is not sinful. Explaining the opinion in a way that causes humiliation is not permitted.
