Day Questions

Why are there two Sajdahs (prostrations) in one raka’at, whereas there is only one Ruku (bowing)?

We do not know the reason behind such a law since the prayer is a practice of pure worship, that consists of acts set by the Divine Legislator who prescribed this method for us to worship Him. He is the only One who knows the reason behind His desire to be worshipped in this way. The verses and the narrations did not explain such a law and we remain obedient to His orders.

If my mattress has become najis by urine, can it be purified by rainwater?

The mattress and its interior become tahir when it is soaked with rainwater while it is raining. Removing the water from it through pressing or squeezing is not required for it to become tahir, nor is it necessary to repeat the process.

Can a Shia Sayyid girl get married to a new convert to Islam? Can she marry him if her father does not allow it?

It is permissible for the Muslim woman, whether she was from a Sayyid family or not, to marry a Muslim man even if he used to follow another religion, but it should be with the consent of the father of the woman if she is a virgin.
