Is it OK for a mother to breastfeed her newborn baby in front of her elder son of 3-5 years of age?
Firstly I would like to congratulate you on the birth of your baby girl. May Allah (swt) make her a coolness to your eyes and may her arrival be the means of everlasting joy to you and your family.
With regards to breastfeeding / nursing the newborn child in front of her elder brother 3-5 yrs old, it is best to feed the child in privacy. My reason for this is as follows:

Assalamu alaaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu, Insha'Allah this question is reaching you in the best state of iman and health. JazakAllah khayr for this great initiative, may Allah bless each and every one of our great shuyookh alhamdulilah for their efforts InshaAllah. Ameen. I wanted to inquire on whether there is any difference in the method of performing salah (ie. posture,composure,gestures) between a man and a women and what each of the madhabs (whether there are any differences or not) say on this matter insha'Allah. JazakAllah khair

When I was a little girl, someone once told me that, “You can’t write straight lines on blank paper.” I never really thought about what it meant until one day, when deciding that I was up for a challenge, I took a blank piece of paper and wrote in a perfectly straight line. “That’s how it’s done,” I said to myself. “That’s a straight line.”
Or so I thought until I took a closer look and realized that it wasn’t a straight line at all. If I turned the paper on an angle, I could easily see that it was crooked.
Not being one to acquiescence to anything quickly, I resolved to try again. And again. Each time, the line was a millimetre, a centimetre, or a degree point off. It veered a little too much to the bottom or fluctuated slightly upward. And because the line I drew on that blank piece of paper never lay symmetrically or evenly with the points on itself, it was never perfectly straight.

Question:Asalaamu aleykum! I have a question about pants. I've been told that wearing pants is disliked for both men and women, for women even at home with her husband, since pants are clothes typical for the disbelievers. I've also been told that the majority of the scholars agree on this. As I've learned, pants for women in the privacy of the home or for example under the abaya/jilbab is Ok, as this does not compromise her modesty. For me as a european muslim being used to wear pants like this, it sounds a bit "harsh" that we must not even wear them at home. Which by the way brings me to my second question, about cultural practices. Where should we draw the line between religion and culture? About the issue with pants for example, why would wearing them at home be against my religion just because it is common to wear them where I come from? Thank you so much and may Allah bless you!
