comment May we violate Shabbos to administer morphine?
but... usually it's not a separate injection. Your arm's usually already tapped and morphine is just added to the saline or whatever else is going through you.

@narnia What's heresy? Halakha is a human system, not a divine one.

comment Dreams on Quran and Torah
@user6591 a) What is the source for that? I mean, I agree with it but I just want to know the rabbinical source. b) I wouldn't assume that this is personal.

comment Can an ex-employee steal customers?
This is pretty common practice in the realms of consulting, accounting, law, agency... really any professional service. Perhaps try looking into responsa to practitioners of these fields for guidance.

comment Can an ex-employee steal customers?
This is a very different case! In the OP's case, these are clients that Shimon put effort into acquiring and has a relationship with. In the cited case, these are clients that Shimon effectively gets his pal Yitzhak to perform corporate espionage.

@narnia That is not relevant content, that is a URL and doesn't add anything to your question.

comment Hotels, electronic keys, and shabbat
My understanding of this is that if this is permitted, it's only permitted if you ask them to let you into your hotel room when it's not Shabbat, as well.

@narnia please insert relevant content into the text of the question. If there's too much to put in a question, then it's likely an overly-broad question.
