Day Questions

Is it recommended to pray for the Twelfth Imam (peace be upon him)?

There is no doubt that it is recommended to pray for the emergence of the Twelfth Imam (peace be upon him), for his health and the like.

Can I pray with my leather belt?

If the animal is slaughtered in a non-Muslim country then its leather is Najis unless the slaughterer was a Muslim in that country. Praying while wearing Najis things invalidates the prayer.

I live in a high-rise building. A drop of semen fell on the floor in my apartment. It is not possible to wash the floor with running water, because it is not a bathroom, but it is a bedroom. I washed the semen using a mop, and then I washed the mop under running water and then washed the place again, and I did this several times. Has my floor become tahir? Or is my mop becoming najis every time?

The taharah is not established by this; therefore, when you wipe the najis part of your floor with the mop, it becomes najis every time you do that, and the najasah is spread to surrounding areas. One should pour the water on the najis part of the floor, and then collect the water with a cloth or mop, and the place will become tahir.

Can visible stubble on one’s face be consider as a beard? Is it permissible to keep such stubble without letting the hair grow any longer?

We cannot determine whether the said length of hair suffices for it to be considered a beard in the conventional sense. It is convention that will determine what a beard is. Apparently, the trimming undertaken at the lowest level of the conventional beard trimmer does not satisfy the minimum length of a beard.
