Q: Is it permissible for women to drive while adhering the laws of hijab? Today it seems a necessity for them to drop off and pick up kids from school as well as buying the household needs when the husband is at work. What if she needs to drive in order to go to her madrasah etc. be it for teaching or studying? Is there any set rule we can look at which we can apply on the different situations which come about regarding them driving? Also, if they just learn to drive "In case of emergency"?
Q: A non-Muslim young boy started working for a Muslim family as domestic servant. Later he decided to accept Islam and take Shahada. As they live in a remote town where no male was available, the lady of the house administered the Shahada.
Q: My question is regarding Salatul Fajr. If jamat is already going on, is it mandatory to pray 2 rakah sunnah then join the congregational salah or directly join the jamat & later pray the 2 rakah sunnah. In that case when should we pray 2 rakah sunnah - immediately after fardh jamat is over or after the sunrise?
