Coronaviruses

Coronaviruses are a group of related viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that can be mild, such as some cases of the common cold (among other possible causes, predominantly rhinoviruses), and others that can be lethal, such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. Symptoms in other species vary: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory tract disease, while in cows and pigs they cause diarrhea.

No doubt, every suffering and hardship we face has a reason behind it which can be warning us from bad deeds. COVID-19 is no exception. The whole world is suffering from different types of injustice and sinful acts committed by millions of people and governments. Nothing is making them leave injustice and wrong deeds. Bad deeds are increasing through the social and e media. Billions of Dollars are been wasted on weapons while millions of human beings are not finding enough food and medicine. Injustice can never go with out punishment or at least warning before the major punishment. It is a warning to every single and all human beings and a warning to the rulers who do injustice.

May Allah protect us from sinful acts and save us from the punishment.

'Wassalam.

Yes she can. There is no condition in Adhan and Iqaamah to be given by the father only or any man. Women including the mother can do it as well.

'Giving the name to the child should not ignore the father's wish.

Rituals of Hajj are the same since the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) showed the Muslims the rituals of Hajj and : Take your Hajj rituals from me.

'Pandemic health restrictions must be followed to avoid risk on you and others.

We hope that rules will soon allow performing Hajj and Umrah. When traveling for Hajj will be allowed, we will see then the government conditions and try to respond to the question which will arise then.

It is permissible to perform congregational Prayers keeping the social distancing required by health experts. That distancing will not invalidate the prayer nor the congregation Jama'ah.

Salaamun alaikum
May Allah (swt) bless his soul and raise him with Muhammad and his Ahlulbait (a.s).
It is recorded in Fiqhi books like Urwatul Wuthqa that if one is buried without Ghusl, it is obligatory that he/she must be exhumed and the Ghusl is performed on their bodies and then get buried again GIVEN that 1) the corpse is not decayed and 2) the act of exhumation is possible and also 3) the fact that the whole process is not considered a disrespectful act to the buried person.

There's no need for a wood chamber if you mean a coffin by that.

If the circumstances above are not possible at all then do not worry, Allah (swt) judges us according to our actions and let's hope that your father's actions be sufficient for getting Allah's Mercy. And you as his children can give charity and recite Quran and do Mustahab acts and gift the reward to his soul and it is very much recommended as the duty of children towards their parents!

These rituals are the duties of the alive people around the dead!!!

This question of the permissible distance in congregational prayers is not new as many think. It has been mentioned in our books before about one thousand years. Shaikh Al-Tousi who established the Hawza of Najaf Ashraf before about one thousand years ago and passed away in 460 Hijri, has mentioned it in his book (Al-Mabsoot). Al-Muhaqqiq Al-Hilli (676 \Hijri) and Yahya ibn Sa'eed (689 Hijri) who were among the prominent Shia Ulama did mention it. The verdict of all these three prominent Ulama and many other Ulama that it is permissible to perform congregational prayer with distance between the individuals as far as the shape of the group is a congregation الهيئة العرفية. This in principle. The medical and health reason based on the the obligation on every Muslim to save himself and other from infection, add another reason to our Maraaji' of Taqleed to act upon the verdict of Shaikh al-Tousi and other old Ulama allowing the distance in congregational prayers.

You are not allowed to skip fasting any day in the month of Ramadhan unless you are traveling or ill with an illness which is related to fasting.

It is allowed for you to ravel to skip fasting but must keep it as Qadha later on.

according to the fiqh of Ahl al-Bayt prayer without connected lines is not valid and therefore it is not permissible to pray along with others on TV or online. It is good to keep your atmosphere pure and simply to focus on and get the best from your relationship with Allah during your acts of worship, especially away from such modern devices.

Furthermore, in our view it is sunnah of the Prophet to pray supererogatory prayers at home. This view was supported also by Imam Malik and Imam Shafi'i (according to some reports) and Abu Yusuf al-Hanafi.

With prayers for your success.

there is no problem in using alcohol based hand sanitizers and it does not invalidate the fast. This is a general ruling and it is not limited to any particular time-period.
