Press Release on the Terrorist Attacks during the month of Ramadan

"Those who do wrong will come to know by what a (great) reverse they will be overturned!" (Holy Quran 26:227)

The terrorist attacks against the innocent followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them) in Iraq have increased recently in various bombings of civilian gatherings in Baghdad and number of governates in Iraq during the Holy month of Ramadan. These terrorist acts have resulted in the martyrdom and wounding of hundreds of civilians, while the international, Islamic and Arabic organizations remain quiet. This confirms that these attacks are part of regional plot that will have dangerous consequences on the security of the regional and of the world.

As we ask Almighty Allah to send His mercy on the souls of the martyrs and to grant the wounded fast recovery. We strongly condemn these savage attacks and emphasize on the following:
Firstly: It is necessary for the Iraqi government and the Judiciary to fulfill their responsibility in bringing the perpetrators to justice and in protecting civilian citizens, especially the followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them) as they are the primary target of terrorism.
Secondly: We call the international community, especially the international organizations, to classify such crimes as crimes against humanity, since they are genocides that resulted from hate culture and shedding human blood on religious bases which are violations of the international laws and ethics.

"There is no power save from Allah, the All-High, the All-Great".

The Office of the Religious Authority, Sayyid Mohammed Saeed Al-Hakeem.

Day Questions

I just reverted to the shi’a Islam. I would like to know the Islamic position of vegetarianism?

You can refuse to eat meat even if it is not recommended in some religious texts.

Is it permissible to ascribe associates to the personality of God, His attributes, the requirements of His attributes (what the attributes demand from us) with the intention of supplicating to the 14 Infallibles (Peace be upon them)?

<p style="text-align: left;">Seeking intercession of the Prophet and the Imams (peace be upon them) is not a kind of polytheism. It is one of the best forms of worship, since it includes presenting the request to Almighty Allah and submitting to His lordship, as all things are under His control "His verily is all creation and commandment" (7:54). In this seeking of intercession, there is the submitting of the high positions of His friends that He has chosen and this is one of the signs of faith.<br />There are many proofs establishing the permissibility of such worship. One of them is the verse of Almighty Allah: "when they had wronged themselves, they had but come unto thee and asked forgiveness of Allah, and asked forgiveness of the messenger, they would have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful" (4:64).</p>
