- I live in Jeddah with my wife. We went to perform Umra. We completed the Tawaf and Saee. After that, my wife wanted to cut her hair herself but I told her that only someone who has already got Halaqa can cut your hair. She waited for me so I can get my haircut and then cut her hair. After I had my Haircut, we discovered we did not have a scissors to cut her hair. We thought we can go home (Jeddah) and do that.
Once we returned home, we kissed each other. Immediately after, she remembered that she needed to cut her hair. Now, please advise us if we should give any "Dum" having done this? If so, what should it be? and can we give Dum back in Pakistan where people need it the most? ( Oct 23, 2010 )

- aid intends to go for Haj along with her mother. But Zaid's wife(Rashidah) insists her husband not to go for any one of the following reasons.
1. Rashidah fears that her mother in law (Zaid's mother) would pass away due to her sickness.
2. Rashidah feels that she herself will not be more if she would stay without her husband.(Like more conservative women feel in India)
Now Zaid is capable to bear the expenses for two. For him and for her mother. So in such case what should Zaid do? Whether he should go for Haj with her mother or not. And all advices failed to convince Rashida. ( Sep 21, 2010 )
