Day Questions

There is a verse in Quran “Rabul mashariqein w rabul magrebain" - Lord of the two Easts, and Lord of the two Wests". 55:17 What is the logic behind this?

It could mean the plurality of places of sunrise and sunset as per its revolution in one day. It could also mean the numerousness of sunrise and sunset places with respect to the horizon seen by the individual in his/her site place during the year as the places of sunrise and sunset are numerous in the seen horizon during the year.

A man’s mother died from illness that resulted from female genital mutilation in his youth. Then he made a covenant (ahd) with Allah Almighty to become a professional gynecologist, and treat women with similar problems. Is this covenant valid and obligatory to observe? Is it allowed for a Muslim man to work as a gynecologist or obstetrician?

The said covenant (ahd) is correct and one should act upon it if the profession is required to prevent harm from reaching Muslim women. It is not obligatory to act on it if there are enough Muslim female physicians. It is permissible to take up such a profession, and it is permissible to deliver babies when necessary.

Is it permissible for a woman to wear a wig instead of wearing the hair cover if other parts of the body that must be covered are covered, because it will not be her hair?

It is permissible if it fulfills the religious obligation of covering the hair, However, wearing a wig makes the woman appear as though she is without hijab, and this could discourage the wearing of hijab, so it becomes prohibited from this aspect.
