Day Questions

If a person is unaware that after urinating and wiping the penis with dry material he is still supposed to wash it with water, is it tahir? Does he have to repeat all prayers as qadha?

The urinary organ is still considered to be najis, but his previous prayers are not void if the person was unaware of the najasah on the body or the clothes. However, for future prayers he must make the part tahir with water.

I have a question regarding donation of money to mourning Imam Hussein (peace be upon him). Can we spend this money in other good deeds like constructing a Hussaniya or a mosque?

Donations must be spent in the way the donor wants. However, if the donation is more than what the beneficiary requires and if postponing their spending leads to wasting the donation, it is permissible to spend them in other ceremonies of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him).
