Day Questions

Is it allowed to present the culture of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) in societies with mixed sectarian backgrounds?

It is permissible to call with wisdom and fair exhortation, without getting into conflicts and encouraging hatred.

I have long hair that is long enough to tie, and when I wipe over my hair in wudhu, the hair that I am wiping moves with my hand and it falls forward. Is this valid?

Yes, the wiping is correct even if there is movement of the hair; however, it is necessary to limit the wiping to the roots of the hair or the parts of the hair which are close to the roots, such that they cannot extend to outside the front quarter of the head.

Sometimes when I feel sexual attraction, there is an involuntary discharge of liquid, which may or may not be followed by semen. Will I need to do the ghusl of janaba?

If the semen was released, then ghusl must be performed before offering the prayers. The release of another fluid, such as what may be released during foreplay and sexual urges does not obligate ghusl.
