Day Questions

I have been told that the narrations regarding rings other than aqiq, such as feyroza, yaqoot etc. are weak. Is this true, and does that mean that wearing a ring other than aqiq has no benefit?

Wearing turquoise (feyroza) is confirmed in some narrations and whoever wears it does not face poverty; also, the same has been reported with respect to the ruby. We do not need to investigate the authenticity of such narrations, as these actions will be deemed ‘mustahabb’ (recommended) even if they are not authenticated. This is because Almighty Allah, as per authentic narrations, has promised to reward the deeds of the believers if they performed those deeds relying on such narrations, even if such narrations were not authenticated.

Is it sufficient to wipe my head with one finger during wudhu?

Yes, doing so is sufficient in the correctness of the wudhu.

What are the religious instructions for divorce, including the dower and the money to be paid for child and the ex-wife?

If the divorce was revocable, then maintaining the wife financially during the Iddah - the waiting period - is obligatory on the husband. If it was irrevocable, then such maintenance is not obligatory.It is obligatory on the father to sustain his children financially whether their mother is divorced or not.The dower is payable to the wife by the husband if he consummated the marriage, and half of the dower is due if he did not.
