Day Questions

In a charity, is it allowed for the managers to withdraw some amount from the funds given as charity for a particular project in order to cover the administrative costs?

Usually, the charity donors intend for their donations to be used only for the charitable beneficiaries such as the orphans and needy people, in which case the charity establishment is not permitted to use this money in any other way. If the donor gave the donation intending to give the charity establishment absolute discretion in how it is used, then they can use it or some of it for administrative costs.

Are there any authentic narration, Duas or Ziyarats in Shia books that direct us to ask the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) directly for sustenance, children, and the like?

Seeking intercession of the Prophet and the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) and asking them does not require an extra proof other than what is mentioned in the Holy Book. The following verse is sufficient to prove it, when Almighty Allah said: “And if, when they had wronged themselves, they had but come unto thee and asked forgiveness of Allah, and asked forgiveness of the messenger, they would have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful” (4:64).

I am living in India. Is it sufficient hijab for me to wear a Manto (a form of a long coat) along with a Niqab (which covers the nose and mouth)?

It is prohibited for women to expose any part of her body, except her face and hands, in the presence of non-Mahrams. Any kind of clothing which provides such Hijab is sufficient. It is not obligatory to cover the face.

If a believer prefers to seek help and assistance from Almighty Allah by saying Ya Allah Madad instead of Ya Ali Madad, is it correct to say that he has expressed enmity to the 14 Infallibles in general and to Imam Ali (peace be upon him) in particular and he is no more a Shia?

There is nothing wrong with seeking the mercy directly from Almighty Allah and seeking the intercession of Imam Ali (peace be upon him), since the matter entirely is in the hand of Allah. Seeking the intercession of Imam Ali means asking Almighty Allah by the intercession of Imam Ali, so the chances of one's wishes being answered is greater than directly asking Almighty Allah.
