Are we allowed to listen to a musician who plays the organ?

If the music by its nature involves ‘tarab’ or enjoyment, then it is prohibited to listen to it whether it is from this particular instrument or any other ones. <br>‘Tarab’ means the psychological interaction with the music or singing, whether it leads to joy, sadness, pride or any other emotion.

I read a supplication against black magic. It is stated that one should write this supplication on deer skin. Can I use something else to write on because it is hard to find deer skin?

We are not aware of the method mentioned, but there are some narrations that state that in order to annul magic one can recite the verse 10:81 of the Holy Quran (“That which you have brought is magic. Allah will make it vain. Allah upholds not the work of mischief-makers”).

When I do ghusl, I keep having doubts about whether I have wash a particular part of the body, and I keep repeating the washing numerous times. What should I do?

If you doubt that you missed one part of your body, you should redo it. However, if you doubt so often in such a way that they become excessive, then you do not need to pay attention to them.
