What is the meaning of Makrooh?
In Islamic terminology, something which is makruh (Arabic: مكروه, transliterated: makrooh or makrūh) is a disliked or offensive act (literally “detestable” or “abominable”). Though a makruh act is not haram (forbidden) or subject to punishment, a person who abstains from this act will be rewarded.
What are the types of zina?
Islamic law establishes two categories of legal, sexual relationships: between husband and wife, and between a man and his concubine. All other sexual relationships are considered zināʾ (fornication), including adultery and homosexuality, according to Islamic law and exegesis of the Qur’an.
Is it haram for a Muslim female to live alone?
A woman may live alone subject to the condition that she is trustworthy and is not a woman of dubious character.
What are the rules for men and women in Islam?
A brazen stare by a man at a woman or another man is a breach of correct behavior. The rule is meant not only to guard women, but is also meant to guard the spiritual good of men. Looking at the sexual anarchy that prevails in many parts of the world, and which Islam came to check, the need for modesty both in men and women is abundantly clear.
What’s the proper place for a woman in Islam?
In Islam, a wife’s proper place is usually at home. However, for the greater good of the family, to help her husband, to share the burden of the household, or for other chores of the family life, or to pursue an appropriate occupation or profession, she is allowed to come outside, provided that she guards her chastity, respect, and dignity.
For a woman, her husband is a manifestation of the Divine. According to a hadith, had God been pleased to enjoin prostration before anyone but Himself, He would have enjoined upon a woman to prostrate herself before her husband.
