Day Questions

If a person is poor can we give the share of the Imam from the Khums to his brother?

It is permissible to spend the Share of the Imam (Sahmul-Imam) to fulfill the necessities of destitute believers, after referring to the Marji or his agents.

I want some guidance regarding keeping dogs. Can we keep dogs in the house, considering that they serve as guides to the blind, they safeguard homes and are a good friend?

You can keep them in the house, but they are najis. You should purify whatever part of your body or clothes comes in contact with a dog via dampness before offering the prayer.

I want to proceed with a temporary marriage with a Christian woman who is not a virgin, but I am not yet sure if she lost her virginity in accordance to her religion or with the acceptance of her father. What are the necessary conditions to how she lost her virginity for her not to need her parent's permission?

If she lost her virginity by adultery, then the consent of her father or grandfather is a condition in the validity of consummating the temporary marriage. The temporary marriage contract without consummating the marriage does not require the permission of the guardian. The permission of the guardian is not required if his religion does not require it for the validity of the marriage. The permission is also not required if the conventional understanding is that the daughter has absolute freedom in choosing her husband without referring to her father.
