start em off good from young

Q: can a one year old girl go to the buriel of a relative in a graveyard?

A: although there is not direct prohibition, we must teach our children the correct places to attend from a young age. Thus, although one can take a one year girl to the graveyard, it is best to take her to places where girls go, and take our little boys to the places that boys go.

take pride in matters of deen

Q: Salaam.
I read the previous posts about dreams because I had a question about dreams myself, however, i didn’t find exactly what i was looking for…or so i think.
