Day Questions

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.

What is the ruling on doing Dua to the members of Ahlulbait (peace be upon them? Is it allowed to ask them for favors? Or is it better to ask directly from Almighty Allah?

The dua (supplication) is asking Almighty Allah. The Imams of the Ahlulbait are intercessors to Allah and He does not reject their intercession. Nothing is wrong in seeking intercession from the Prophet and his household (peace be upon them). It is mentioned in the Holy Quran: “And if, when they had wronged themselves, they had but come unto thee and asked forgiveness of Allah, and asked forgiveness of the Messenger, they would have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful.” (4:64)

How can I make up the days that I did not fast if I am not sure of the number?

If you doubt the number of the missed days to be between two figures, then consider the lower.

Is a female housemaid considered as a Mahram for men of the house?
