Taking a Compensation against Giving up Right to a Turn to Receive a Jamiah

My colleagues have started what is called in Arabic a "Jamiah" (Money contributed monthly by a group of people so that each collects the total sum in rotation). As I came to know about it and owed lots of money to different people-because of house construction costs-I offered five hundred JDs to the colleague who was to collect that Jamiah first in return for taking his turn. Is it unlawful to do so?

Ruling on Taking off Niqab if it Causes Harm

I have been wearing niqab for a long time. In the last few years, I started experiencing sharp pain in my eyes, so I went to an ophthalmologist and he recommended that I take my niqab off. Latter on, my sight became poor and I fell to the ground several times. It is worth pointing out that I can`t wear niqab while having eyeglasses on. Is it permissible for me to take my niqab off?
