Assalamu Alaikum, Respected ‘Ulama, Firstly i would like to say that i know celebrating birthdays ordinarily is not permissable but my situation requires me to ask this question. i am married and both me and my husband follow the deen. But my in-law with whom we live are ignorant of a lot of the deen. My oldest (married) sister in law does not follow the deen at all and she has invited my husbands family to her sons birthday party. As this sister is favourite of all of my husbands siblings, it is unthinkable to my mother and father inlaw for any of us to refuse to go resulting in my sister in law being upset and angry. i have said to my husband that i dont want to go a celebration that is haram (in and of itself), where there may be music and there may not be any segregation as we do niqab. My husbands reply was that it may be permissable for us to go as, if we didnt go there would be a Fitnah caused amongst my mother and father in law by my oldest sister in law. Please advise me as to what i should do in this situation. Jazakallahu Khair. Was salam

It seems as though my father is having an affair with my sister in law (my husbands sister).I am confused and is my nikkah with my husband valid if this is happening because it seems as though its been going on for quite sometime now.

I would first like to commend the work that you are doing to help all the people out there who want to find out more about Islam. My problem is quite confusing but I need some advice from you. I am a 20 year old girl who got married a year back. Alhamdhulillah...

In my extended family there has been a debate as to who is responsible for the care of my grandparents, who are now largely unable to care for themselves. While it has been accepted that the sons (of which there are 7) must bear..
