Day Questions

Is it permissible to play video games involving adventure or fighting (not chess or other gambling games) in one’s spare time, even without “tarab” because music can always be turned off in video games?

I have read that for making the hand tahir by qaleel water, it is necessary to pour the water on the hand, and when the water flows off the hand the hand will become tahir. Does this apply to all body parts as well as the penis? What if the najasah is urine?

Yes, the separation of water from the najis object is a condition in the process of purification if the water used is little (qaleel). This ruling is the same for all parts of the body, including the penis. If the najasah is urine then one needs to wash the najis object twice when qaleel water is used.

I am a non-Sayyid. Can I wear a black turban to show that Sayyids and non-Sayyids are equal?
