The Press Release on the Attack in Nigeria
2016/07/02

We strongly condemn the savage attack that resulted in the horrible massacre against the Muslim followers of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) in Nigeria.

The circumstances and the intensity of the tragedy suggest the suspicious meditated intention of parties who do not care about the stability of the country or about the harmony between the sects of the nation.

We hold the Government of Nigeria fully responsible in investigating the circumstances of the tragedy, bringing the criminals to justice, freeing the innocents, and preventing this from taking place again.

We call the concerned international communities to uphold their responsibility in condemning this crime and pressuring those who caused it.

We ask Almighty Allah to grant the wounded fast recovery, to have His mercy on the souls of the victims and to give patience to their relatives. He is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.

Day Questions

Is it permissible for me to accept payment in respect to dua I made for someone?

Yes, it is permissible but it is better if the payment is given/taken as a gift.

Is it permissible for the husband to drink his wife's milk?

<p style="text-align: left;">Yes, it is permissible.</p>

I know the Sunnis say the Quran is not created and the Mutazilites say it is. I don’t know what the Shia view is?

The Holy Quran is the words of the Almighty Allah that happened and did not exist before, so it is one of Allah's creations.

If someone intentionally does not fast, does he have to pay Kaffara as well as making up for the fast later?

If they broke their fast knowing that they were obligated to fast then they must pay the Kaffara and make up the lapsed days. In addition to that, if they did not make up the missed days until the next Ramadan, then they must pay 900 grams of dates, wheat, floor, rice, lentils and the like to the needy people for every day that has not been made up.

What is the ruling if one was in the mosque and a little bit of blood came out of his wound onto the floor of the mosque?

It is obligatory to remove the najasah from the mosque and restore its taharah again.
