Prophet Jesus (Peace be upon him)
Question :

Why is it that many Muslims do not respect Jesus? I am a Christian and I do not say anything horrible about Muhammad, so why should a Muslim about Jesus?

Answer :

We are very surprised by what you mentioned about Muslims’ disrespect for Jesus, peace be upon him. Jesus, peace be upon him, is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an sixteen times, every time with respect and honour. You can refer to the Holy Qur’an and find that out with more depth. Here we mention one of those verses, in which God Almighty said: "And verily We gave unto Moses the Scripture and We caused a train of messengers to follow after him, and We gave unto Jesus, son of Mary, clear proofs..." (Qur’an, 2:87).
The Holy Qur’an speaks of the prophets with great respect and reverence, as it considers them to be purified from any imperfection. The Holy Qur’an pays more respect and gives greater sanctity to the prophets than the Bible does. You can study both books in an objective manner to see this truth clearly.
You can also notice that Muslims do not mention the name of Jesus without saying “peace be upon him”, which is a phrase they do not say but for those who are loyal to God.

Might not be Sayyid
Question :

I fear my marriage took place with false pretexts. My mother-in-law would not allow her daughter to marry me if I was not a Sayyid. Upon research I realized that my family line could be Sayyid, I passed this information on to them, so they could agree to the marriage, and they did. After the marriage took place, I explained to my father-in-law that I am personally not convinced that I am Sayyid and would require further research. He responded that he does not mind this, and if I do find out that I am not a Sayyid, I should keep it to myself and not inform him. Is this marriage valid?

The marriage is correct based on the said scenario. But if the wife herself married you on the basis that you are a Sayyid and it was not true, then she has the right to annul the marriage.

The Benefits of Ziyara
Question :

I would like to know the benefits of reciting ziyara?

Answer :

We are unable to determine all the benefits behind such good deed but no doubt that some of them are the obedience and the fulfillment of the orders of the imams (peace be upon them) as their orders were to perform such sermons.
In addition to that, the Ziyaras consist of refreshing the loyalty and the love of the imams plus the encouragement to follow the imam that is being visited by the ziyara, as the ziyara usually contains praising the prophet and the imams by being righteous slaves of the lord, devoted to Him and doers of religious obligations.

What is it?
Question :

Please explain to me the contract of temporary marriage (Mutah).

Answer :

Mutah is a marriage contract between a man and a woman where they agree on establishing a marital relationship with the stipulation of a dower, for a certain period of time. The said relation ends when the mentioned time elapses. Muslims have agreed on this legislation, but the second caliph prohibited it during his caliphate, and this became the reason for the differences in opinion on it, as history and jurisprudential books explained.
