Q: My father passed away earlier this year. He formed a trust, he and my mum were the trustees. Does this trust carry on, or does it have to dissolve? His heirs were the beneficiaries of the trust
Q: I have a bit of a problem. At times when I'm watching TV and a scene of promiscuity or intimacy is screened, I discharge a liquid. I don't know if it's white or colourless. Later on however, I sometimes see white spots in my clothing. I only realise it came out after I feel little wetness. The same happens when I talk with female friends. Is Ghusal Fardh or can I just make wudhu and perform salaah?
Q: Could you please provide guidelines to choosing a party to vote for as I feel discouraged to even register as I do not know who to vote for with so much corruption in the current government despite us Muslims enjoying freedom. On the other hand other parties our freedom not guaranteed. Please advise jazakallah
