Questions and Answers with Imām Muqbil ibn Hādī
A telelink with the late Imām of Yemen, Shaykh Muqbil ibn Hādī al-Wādiʿī (raḥimahullāh) from the late 90's, presenting a series of questions from Salafī Publications in the UK (compiled by sisters), translated by Abū ʿUways (raḥimahullāh) and Abū Khadījah.
[Q1]: What is the ruling on praying behind the Barelwīs? There is no other masjid near my house, is it allowed for me to pray behind them?
[Q2]: What is the ruling regarding striving to gather tazkiyāt (references) in order to make it possible for oneself to give daʿwah (in the UK)?
[Q3]: Is it permissible for a man who has divorced his wife with the first or second divorce, does he have the right to have sexual intercourse with her during this iddāh period?
[Q4]: I am a Muslim woman, Allāh has tried me with two parents who hate al-Islām and they refuse that I should wear ḥijāb and dress correctly, is it right that I stay with my parents when they require me to marry a grave-worshipper, am I allowed in the Sharīʿah to leave and live alone or live with some sisters?
[Q5]: What is the ruling regarding one who says that the Salafī daʿwah can recieve money from the raafidhah Shīʿah and use it to spread daʿwah?
[Q6]: Is it allowed for a woman to make a condition in a marriage contract that he (her husband) does not have the right to marry a second wife, and he agrees to this condition, will this condition take effect or not?
[Q7]: There is a person in Britain and he delivers verdicts and he says the books of fiqh do not contain rulings that a woman must cover her face nor is it recommended, and anyone who says this, no one has preceded him in saying so, no one from the scholars and people of fiqh, so it is correct for us to request verdicts from him (this man) and refer to him?
[Q8]: Is it allowed for me to eat in the restaurants in Britain and they are Ahl al-Kitāb, is that forbidden?
