Such loan is permissible to take. Some scholars also allowing taking loans with interest if it is absolutely necessary and the person is in much hardship.

If this woman you are getting to know says that she will accept Islam, then you can marry her. If she chooses to stay atheist, then all types of marriage (temporary and permanent) are not allowed with her. 

So before marrying her, she must accept Islam and sincerely utter the testimony of faith.

Bismaillah, 

Asalamu Alaykom, 

It isn’t obligatory to have kids but it is highly recommend and encouraged in Islam. Usually the father has a strong influence on his children. so he should make sure that they are raised according to the teachings of the prophet Mohammed and his purified progeny (peace be upon them all). 

The husband MUST ensure that his children will be raised to not praise the enemies of Ahlul bayt (as) which many Muslims unknowingly do. He should raise children who will disassociate from the oppressors of the imams (as). 

It is good for him to also try and guide his wife in a way isn’t forcing her. If you both decide not to have children for the time being then that is entirely your choice. 

May Allah grant you success

It is permitted but if a woman was doing any particular act on her husband, then it is haram for her to consume any najasa.

Please read the following link which includes some ahadith and information on this matter:

No that doesn’t invalidate the fast. Please check your Islamic laws book to see the chapter of those specific things which break one’s fast

You may say this if you are both mahram to each other. Being Halal to each other is established by reading the nikah or a mutah formula with the correct conditions. After this, sharing affectionate words is permitted.

This is permitted provided that no haram would be done. So for example, a Muslim may not go to a haram environment like a pub or club. Let us say the Muslim even goes to a normal restaurant but then his non-Muslims colleagues consume alcohol; he would not be permitted to sit on the same table as them in which alcohol is being drunk at. 

If however they go to a restaurant and there is no drinking alcohol on the same table, and the food is halal, then there is no issue and it is permitted inshallah.

Many of us use social media as it can be beneficial in spreading Islam in addition to keeping in contact with those we know from friends and family.

Unfortunately on all platforms such as Facebook and YouTube, corruption may pop up from ads. If one unintentionally sees these types of things, then it is upon him to look away. If one would deliberately look at corrupt things whilst fasting, then it would of course decrease his reward but not break the fast. 

Please watch a recent lecture I gave regarding this topic:

As for ghusl, this wouldn’t be needed unless you ejaculate. So if you see a haram picture by mistake and then you automatically ejaculate (which isn’t a common thing) then you would have to perform the ghusl of janabah.

Asalamu Alaykom, 

A Muslim man (not female) can marry a non-Muslim who is from the people of the book. This includes Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians. Some scholars allow both permanent and temporary marriage with the above mentioned categories, and some only allow temporary marriage with them. 

If someone says a Shahada and professes faith, we judge on the apparent and consider them Muslim. If however a Shahada was not taken seriously or said in a joking type of way, it has no value.

So if a person has the intention inside them to say the Shahada just to get married - and this has happened before - it will be accepted if we aren’t aware.

This is similar to hypocrites who utter the Shahada but don’t believe in Islam with their hearts. 

If a non Muslim is genuinely willing to accept the faith and marriage is also a motivation for him, it will still  be accepted. 

May Allah grant you success

Asalamu Alaykom, 

The circumcision is correct if approved by the expert who performed it that he took the foreskin off during the procedure. 

Due to the penis being a living tissue, it may  sometimes change in size where all the penis head is exposed, and at other times, leaving some of the head covered as mentioned in your example.

After consulting with a brother I know who works in this field, and who is an expert in circumcision, he confirmed that your issue is common and wouldn’t be classed as ‘uncircumcised’. Many other adults he has checked also experience this after they were circumcised when younger. 

Ulema say that the important part is for the top part of the head to be exposed (meaning the urinating hole). 

Some extra skin sometimes going a bit over the head when it’s cold wouldn’t invalidate the circumcision as at other times the head will be fully exposed in a normal state. 

The ulema also state that one can rely on those who perform circumcision to take the correct amount. So you may trust their judgement.

Ghusl wouldn’t need to be repeated however, if this came out during the woman praying Salah, she should break the salah and make the place tahir of where the semen has leaked and then repeat the salah.

It is makruh to do things which would make one weak while fasting such as giving blood. It still would be permissible to do.
