Day Questions

If a woman considers that offering prayers with hands closed on the breast is obligatory or recommended, then is her prayer valid?

If the woman did this while not being aware of its being wrong, then this does not affect the validity of her prayers. If she was aware that it is not legislated and insisted on doing this then the prayer is invalid.

It is stated by his Eminence that a discharge will be deemed to be semen if it is accompanied with tepidity, forceful ejaculation and sexual excitement. what is it meant by tepidity and if I person feels this but when he touches his penis there’s no liquid is ghusl obligatory for him?

Those are the signs of semen if one is doubtful about the nature of the discharged liquid. So, if there is a liquid released and one doubts whether it is semen or not, then the presences of these signs will determine it to be semen. If there is no liquid released, then the ghusl is not obligatory. Tepidity means that one feels relaxed and tired.

Does vomiting break your fast?
