No Focus in Salaah

E-mail Print PDF

Q: I happened to pray zuhr salah at home, but as soon as I started to pray, a family member unintentionally started to talk to somebody loudly and with the other person on speaker. I did complete my prayer without any mistakes but during the entire time I could hear these people talk and there was no focus or khushoo in the salah. Is this salah valid or does it need to be repeated?

A:
Although there was no focus, nevertheless the Salaah is valid and does not have to be repeated.

Q: I read the latest question regarding separation before divorce and that the wife is not allowed to leave her home without her husband's approval.  What happens in the case of where the lives of the wife and minor children are in danger (i.e. husband is aggressive, threatens wife with a firearm and even fires a shot).  Does the wife still need to get permission for leaving her home?

A:
If she is in danger then obviously she is permitted to leave. In fact she should leave. She has a right to protect herself.
