Shar’i rulings regarding Islamic sisters

Veil with mother-in-law after wife’s death

Question 1: What have Islamic scholars ruled on the following issue? The wife of Zaid has passed away. His mother-in-law is around sixty two years of age. Some people are of the opinion that veil will now be observed between Zaid and his mother-in-law because his wife has passed away. Please guide us on whether or not veil is to be observed between Zaid and his mother-in-law because of his wife’s death.

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: In the situation mentioned in the question, it is not Wajib for Zaid to observe veil with his mother-in-law provided that there is no risk of lust. As soon as Zaid got married, his mother-in-law became Haraam for him with Hurmat-e-Abadi [i.e. permanent prohibition]. It is not Wajib to observe veil with those relatives with whom Hurmat-e-Abadi for Nikah [permanent prohibition on marriage] is imposed due to Nikah. However, if the mother-in-law is young, it is better to observe veil with her.

Reciting Ayat-ul-Kursi during menses

Question 2: What have Islamic scholars ruled on the following issue? Are Islamic sisters allowed to recite Ayat-ul-Kursi during menses?

بِسْمِ اللّٰہِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِیْمِ

اَلْجَوَابُ بِعَوْنِ الْمَلِکِ الْوَھَّابِ اَللّٰھُمَّ  ھِدَایَۃَ الْحَقِّ وَالصَّوَابِ

Answer: During menses, Islamic sisters are allowed to recite Ayat-ul-Kursi with the intention of making Zikr and Sana [i.e. remembering and glorifying the Almighty] without intending to recite the Holy Quran. Those who are required to make Ghusl as well as those experiencing menses are allowed to recite such verses of the Holy Quran which consist of Zikr, Sana, Du’a and Munajat a without intending to recite the Holy Quran with the intention of making Zikr, Sana and Du’a. However, if she is among those who know that she is experiencing menses, it is not appropriate to recite the verses aloud even with the intention of Zikr and Sana. This care should be taken in case they consider recitation of the Quran to be permissible in the state of menses or even though they do consider recitation of the Quran impermissible in this state but they might falsely accuse the reciting one of sin.

وَاللہُ  اَعْلَمُ   عَزَّوَجَلَّ   وَ رَسُوْلُہٗ اَعْلَم   صَلَّی اللّٰہُ عَلَیْہِ واٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم
