Guest contributor, Saajeda Padia Bayat

Eid is a difficult time for those in grief. The past months have been marred with many a sudden passing. We usually hear of these things happening to "someone else." As we celebrate Eidul Adha and culminate the Hajj, the thought of absent loved ones makes us grieve harder. Guest contributor, Saajeda Padia Bayat offers comfort and advice to those in pain. read more

When making Ghusl, if an area as small as or equal to a hair's breadth is left dry, Ghusl will not be complete. In the same way, if one forgets to gargle the mouth or wash the nose, Ghusl will not be complete.

If after having a bath, one remembers that a particular area was left dry, then it is not necessary to repeat the entire Ghusl. Instead, only that dry area should be washed. However, it is not sufficient to merely pass the wet hand over that area. Some water should be taken and poured over that area. If a person forgets to gargle the mouth, he should gargle it. And if a person forgets to wash the nose, he should wash it. In other words, whichever part has been left out, should be washed. It is not necessary to repeat the entire Ghusl.

The Husband asks his wife if she would like to play a game, “All you have to do is ask a question and if I get it wrong or don’t know it I will give you 5 dollars, then I ask you a question and if you get it wrong you pay me 5 Dollars.”

“No,” she says, “I am tired and just want to sleep.”

He keeps asking and she finally gives in when he says if he gets it wrong he will pay her 500 Dollars, but she still only has to pay 5 Dollars.

“What is the distance from the Sun and the Earth?” he asks.

She gives him 5 Dollars. “What goes up the mountain with two legs and comes down with three?” she asks.

The Husband is confused, he pulls out his laptop and searches it, but finds nothing. Then he emails his friends. After an hour, he still hasn’t got an answer, he hands her 500 Dollars.

Then he asks her, “So what is the answer?” She hands him 5 dollars and goes to sleep.
