The Press Release on the Attack in Nigeria

The Press Release on the Attack in Nigeria

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

Does Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him) have servants? How can I appoint myself to be his servant?

We advise you to stay away from this kind of thoughts and focus on performing what is obligated and recommended in the Sharia. Once you do that, you will be under the care of the Twelfth Imam (peace be upon him), even if you don’t directly feel his blessings.

Some people are against the concept of intercession (waseelah). Kindly tell me in Quran which verse indicates waseelah for prayer to Allah.

<p style="text-align: left;">This topic entails a detailed discussion, but in summary: Allah said: "And if, 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). It is clear that intercession of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) is one of the reasons of mercy and forgiveness, and there is no evidence that this is limited to his life, especially with the traditions narrated from him that indicate that he replies to our salutations and greetings to him after his death; so just as salutations reach him after his death, so do our requests for his intercession.</p>

I am working in a kitchen as a cook. I was wondering if it was permissible for me to taste food that is not permissible to consume.

You can taste the food that is prohibited to consume, provided that you do not swallow it and you should purify your mouth if the food is Najis.
