405 Corporal punishment in Islam Does Islam allow corporal punishment of children by parents (e.g. is a parent allowed to smack a child's behind if the child isn't listening or slap their disobedient child)? Are there limits (to the amount of pain inflicted) and if so, what are they? If it is allowed, is there an age limit of the child after which it isn't allowed? If not allowed, is there kaffarah for parents?
411 cursing our children Salaam. Is it permissible for a mother to yell and cuss at her children for no reason.
422 aggreement in choice of marriage question is that my sisters are not agreeing to my choice of marriage...I have known him for 17years...but they do not like him even though they have never met him...please can you tell me how I can get them to like him and agree to the parents have both passed there something I need to do or read...or maybe I can read something even without wudhu..please I am very upset
435 children obeying their parents What is the degree to which a child is obligated to obey the orders of his parents?
463 keeping a dog as a pet Would you be so kind as to explain the circumstances & the guidelines under which a momin would be able to keep a dog as a pet.

We live on a large parcel of land and with all the criminal activity these days we have entertained having a guard dog on the premises. It would always be outside and would never enter the living quarters.

Is there anyway to accomplish both, have a dog and still meet the Islamic directive.

Also, I understand a dog by the name of Tatmir will be allowed into heaven; if it is truly "Najis", why then the exception?

Thanks in advance for your response.

She has always been cursing me through bad words and disgracing me by making fun of me (many a times in front of many people). When i try to defend myself, my parents call it 'insolence'. Is she to be obeyed? is she, in any respect, equal to the status of my real mother (late)? What does Islam say about this?
