 The Meeting of His Eminence with the Preachers of the Pulpit of Imam Hussain

His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Al-Hakeem (long may he live), called upon the preachers and speakers of the pulpit of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him) to undertake their research with accuracy in transmitting the narrations of the Infallibles (peace be upon them), to be sure of their veracity, and to collect them in an organised way, so that the masses may benefit from them, and to be safe from those who wish to cause confusion and opposition, those who wish to attack the school of the Ahlul-Bayt  (peace be upon them).

His Eminence gave this message to a delegation of preachers and scholars from the holy Seminary (Hawzah) of Najaf who came to visit him on Tuesday 21st Dhil-Hijjah.

He also explained the importance of the duty of spreading the teachings of Islam, which represents a vital role in which reminding the believers and connecting them with the heritage and path of the Ahlul-Bayt  (Peace be upon them).

His Eminence ended the talk by praying for God's help and support for the preachers in their mission, which requires more effort and incessancy, as well as focus on urging the people to return to God, and to hold on to the teachings of the pure religion of Islam. This is so especially as the believers place importance on the season of Ashura and in attending the Majalis in commemoration of Imam Husain (peace be upon him) and the great tragedy of Karbala, in order to gain knowledge and understanding of Islam derived from the Holy Quran and the teachings of the Prophet and his holy progeny (peace eb upon them).

Day Questions

I suspect that magic or sorcery has been cast on me. I started getting angry about two months ago and always feel agitated. I also noticed signs in the genitalia area along with obsessive desire which I ignored at first. Please could you check if my suspicion is right, and if so what I should do?

We advise you to refrain from such thoughts. It is known that "Ayat-ul-Kursi" (verse 2:255) is useful to defeat the effects of magic and demons. You should recite it constantly and ignore these illusions and not think about them.

Many Muslims offer the “Taraweeh” prayer in Ramadan. What is the religious position of such prayer?

This prayer was not offered by the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) and was invented after his death. It is not legislated by the Sharia.

Is it allowed to present the culture of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) in societies with mixed sectarian backgrounds?

It is permissible to call with wisdom and fair exhortation, without getting into conflicts and encouraging hatred.
