Wife isn`t Obliged to Help with Brother-in-Law`s Marriage Expenses

I am a married woman. I had to work because my husband can`t afford our basic needs. After I got the job, my mother-in-law started asking me for money. Recently, she asked me to help with the marriage expenses of my brother-in-law. Moreover, my husband and I live in a rented house and he is liable for several debts. Is what she is asking of me permissible from an Islamic perspective?

Should she Claim Diya because a Shop`s Billboard Fell on her Leading to her Paralysis?

Question: I`m a 28-year-old married woman and have two children. Two years ago, I went shopping with my husband. As we were coming out of one of the shops, a billboard fell on me breaking my spine and wounding my head. I was rushed to the hospital and after being examined, the doctors said that I was paralyzed for I couldn`t move my legs nor feel them. My family filed charges against the shop owner to obtain compensation, however, my conscience isn`t clear about this. Am I entitled to compensation from that owner although he isn`t the direct cause of the accident as it was an act of God? Assuming that I have the right to claim compensation, how much should it be and is it lawful or not? I need to know the exact amount for my case according to Sharia? Finally, could you invoke Allah to bless me with recovery for the sake of my children?

Hanafi Fiqh

Investigating and spying

If you have seen a married woman behaving inappropriately. She sometimes smiles, laugh, joke and becomes friendly with non-mahram
males or shes too nice with non-mahram males. She maybe a good person overall but some of her behaviours require further investigation. For example if she receives a delivery, if the delivery man starts conversation with her shes doesn’t mind talking to him. I understand no one is perfect. My view about her she knows this kind of behaviour inappropriate but she still does it because of charismatic and bubbly or immature personality. I’m very sure she will never do adultery, she doesn’t seems like that. I seen her pray salah sometimes. She stays at home most of her free time. If we suspect her doing wrong actions can we further investigate her? By following what she does when we shes when with non-mahram males.
