Press Release on the American Administration’s Decision to Move the US Embassy to Jerusalem
2017/12/10

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is to God, the Lord of the worlds; and may God send his blessings on our master Mohammed and his holy progeny.

We condemn the decision of the American administration to move the US Embassy to the occupied city of Jerusalem, as it is an affront to the Palestinian people and disregard for the feelings of Muslims.

We want to point out that this stance is a natural consequence of the distancing of the Muslims from the teachings of their true religion, their neglect of their shared matters and interests, their fighting amongst themselves, and the spread of the epidemic of extremism and terrorism which has targeted them, and destroyed their societies and their towns, and has distorted the name of their religion. God Almighty has said: “And obey God, and obey the Messenger, and do not into disputes, lest you lose heart and your power departs.”

Today, all are invited – especially those fostering and supporting terrorism – to seriously revise their previous stances, and to open a new page, to unify the positions of the Islamic nations and to build firm foundations in establishing good relations with other nations, which reflects the pliability of their religion and its genuine values.

We seek support and help from only Him, and He is the guardian of the believers

Day Questions

If I masturbated when I was fasting for a nadhr (pledge), what should I do? I believe my fast was broken due to my ignorance and the sin of masturbation.

Masturbation is among the prohibited act. You should stop doing it even by having temporary marriage. The fast is valid if you did not know that masturbating is prohibited and that it will invalidate the fast.

Is it obligatory to obey one’s father in choosing a wife for marriage?

Disobeying the parents in such a matter is not considered as ingratitude (Uqooq), but one should refrain from breaking the relationship with them because of such an issue.
