Correspondence of Hazrat Moulana Yunus Patel Saheb (rahimahullah)

Letter: 

Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh

Respected Moulana

I live with my in-laws and there is free intermingling amongst the brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law. I come from a conservative home and am very uncomfortable in this situation. How do I live in such a home without getting involved in an informal relationship with the men in the home?

Is there any proof in respect to keeping one’s distance from one’s brother-in-law? How should I dress before my father-in-law?

What does sharee‘ah say about having male servants, because my in-laws keep male servants to do housework?

How to Ask?​

There was once a person who felt hot in his home. Since there was no means to cool the home from within, such as a fan or an air conditioner, he was compelled to bring in coolness from out of the home. However, where merely opening the window would have sufficed, he exceeded the point of necessity and chose to open the entire front door, soon suffering a robbery.

As discussed previously, hayaa should not prevent us from acquiring necessary Deeni guidance and finding out the masaa-il (rulings) that we need to know. However, we should not lose our hayaa when doing so. Hence, although there is a need to communicate for Deeni guidance, it should be kept to the point of necessity while remaining within the parameters of sharee‘ah. If we lose sight of the boundaries and exceed the limits, then instead of opening a window to improve our Deen, we will ‘open the door’ of fitnah and risk damaging our imaan.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was the paragon of hayaa and hence even when imparting the necessary knowledge to the women of the Ummah, he maintained the highest levels of hayaa.

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

What rights do the paternal grandparents have over my children? They become exceptionally opinionated in my parenting and also try to dictate the time they spend with my child.

Due to not wanting to be disrespectful, I don’t say anything, but I would like to enquire the ruling on this matter.

Please advise.

Jazakallah

Married Woman Making Istikhaarah regarding Another Man

Question:

Assalaamu ‘alaikum

Respected ‘Ulama

My question pertains to reading istikhaarah salaah in the following context:

If a person is married, but it’s not a very happy marriage, and after a few years, there is another person that enters this person’s life who seems to be a better match, then can istikhaarah be made regarding this other person?

I know that it essentially seems strange to want to read istikhaarah to see if another person is good for you while married to another, but can this be done? If not, is there perhaps an alternative solution to this problem?
