Q. What should a person do who does not know
  whether the Namaz he missed on a journey
  should be offered completely or halved (Qasr)?
A. If the person had stayed for 9, or less than 9 days,
  he will offer all the 4 ra’kat Namaz in half. And if
  the person has stayed for 10, or more than 10
  days, he will offer complete Namaz for all the
  days plus 9 days of Qasr Namaz.
Q. If   I   attain   personal   confidence   that   the
  astronomical calculations on the birth of the
  crescent (hilal) announced by the experts are
  correct, can I, relying on my confidence, confirm
  the first of the month and fast or for the Eid and
  break my fast?
A. Confidence in the birth of the crescent and its
  visibility is of no consequence; rather, the actual
  sighting  has  to  be  confirmed  by  yourself  or
  someone else. Yes, it is enough to confirm the
  actual sighting in another city if it shares the
  horizon of your city, such that a sighting in that
  city would necessitate a sighting in your city, if
  there  were  no  barriers  such  as  clouds,  dust,
  mountains, etc.
Q. What is the rule applicable to a person who
  after returning to his hometown comes to know
  that his tawaf had been defective?
A. It is obligatory for him to rectify his tawaf, either
  in person or, when he cannot do it himself by
  appointing a naib. After performing a complete
  tawaf with the intention of fulfilling his obligation,
  the prayer of tawaf should be offered again.
Q. Would unlawful property become lawful to a person once khums is paid from it?

A. If the real owner of  the unlawful  property is
  known. The person should make a compromise
  with the owner and if the owner is not agreeable
  to a compromise, the person should give him the
  complete property. If the owner is not known
  the person should give it as alms on behalf of its
  owner and the obligatory precaution is that he
  should also obtain permission from the Religious
  Head.  Payment  of  Khums  from  an  unlawful
  property cannot make it lawful.

  for all people and are the sayings of the Prophet
  (s.a.w.a.)  as  far  as  the  meanings  and  words,

  and the infallibles reflect the teachings of Allah
  (s.w.t.).
