Summary of Letter:
Respected Mufti Saheb
السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركات
I do not have the enthusiasm and eagerness to do any work (and to complete my Tasbeehs, Tilaawat, etc.). I am forever in a state of uneasiness. Shaitaani thoughts and inclinations continue to bother me. Please advise me how to overcome this situation.

Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is reported to have said: “On the Day of Qiyamat, Allah Ta’ala will resurrect certain groups of people in such a state that their faces will be radiant with light, they will be sitting on pulpits of pearls and others will envy their lot. They will neither be from among the Prophets nor from among the martyrs. Somebody asked the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) to let him have more details about those people so that he may be able to recognize them. Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) replied: “They will be the people who belong to different families and different places, but assemble at one place for the love of Allah Ta’ala and are engaged in His Zikr.”

The following are some of the masaa’il (laws) found in the books of the Shia:* The authentic book of the Shia “Manlaa Yahdurhul Faqih,” states: “It is not permissible to perform wudhu from the leftover water of Jews, Christians, illegitimate children and all those who are against Islam. The most dirty and polluted leftover water is that of a Sunni” (chapter on water and its purification, pg.8, vol.1).

1. Anything which is used by a number of persons should be placed in its original place after use. Replace it in the same place from where you have taken it so that someone else does not have to search for it when required.
2. Having used an item, eg. a chair, do not leave it in the way or in a place where it becomes an obstacle for others.

Many people attribute the significance of the tenth of Muharram to the martyrdom of Sayyidina Husain (R.A.). Hence people mourn his death on this day. Is this correct?

Once Imaam Abu Hanifah (R.A.) attended a Janaazah. It was an extremely hot day. The only shade in the vicinity was the shadow of a wall. However, Imaam Abu Hanifah (R.A.) remained standing in the blazing sun. When people insisted that he stand in the shade, he said: “The owner of the house is my debtor. It is not permissible for me to derive any gain from him because the Hadith says: “The benefit produced by every qardh (loan) is ribaa (interest).”
