Day Questions

If one remains in the state of Janaba until the Adhan for Fajr prayers during the month of Ramadan out of ignorance, is his fast valid?

If he did not know that deliberately staying in the state of Janaba until dawn nullifies the fast, then it is valid.It is also valid if he did not know that he was in the state of Janaba until after dawn when he realized it.

Can I offer my prayer when wearing clothes that has blood from a wound even if the size of the blood is little?

If the blood on it is less than the size of a 'dirham' – which should be considered to be no more than 2.3cm as an obligatory precaution – then it is exempted during the prayer from the rule of najasah, and one may pray with such clothing. However, such clothes are still najis, so if his hand touches the blood on the clothes with transferable dampness, then he must purify the hand before offering the prayer.

I find that I have become addicted to masturbating. I masturbate, then ask Allah for his forgiveness, then I masturbate again and this cycle continues. Is it possible to ask Allah for His forgiveness?

You should seek forgiveness and you should not despair of the mercy of Allah, no matter how many times you commits sins, as Almighty Allah does not close the door of mercy and forgiveness no matter how often one commits sins. You should strengthen yourself against your sinful desires and make yourself busy with what benefits you until Almighty Allah grants you an opportunity to get married. We ask Him to guard you, as He is most merciful.
