Day Questions

There are different floors at Jamrah these days; which floor should one take to stone the pillars? Also, the pillars' sizes have been enlarged. Does stoning at the edges of the pillar satisfy the requirement?

Based on compulsory precaution, one should stone the area of the original Jamrah itself – after trying to find out to a reasonable extent where it is – or as close to the original Jamrah as possible.

Is listening to poetry about the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) accompanied with music permissible?

If the music causes ‘tarab’ then it is not permissible to listen to it. ‘Tarab’ means the psychological interaction with the music or singing, whether it leads to joy, sadness, pride or any other emotion.

Ziarat-e-Ashura is recommended to be recited for 40 days continuously. My question is Can a woman recite the ziarat during her menstrual cycle? At the end of the ziarat, there is one sajdah. If a woman does choose to recite the ziarat during her menstrual cycle, what does she have to do when she has to prostrate?

The mentioned ziyara is recommended every day and not only on a continuous 40 days. Yes, it is known to believers that reciting it continually is amongst the reasons to answer the requests in the supplications. The woman in her period can recite the ziyara without praying the two rakat prayers; she can do the rest including the prostration.
