2017/09/22

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).

A few days ago I was cleaning my terrace where I found a bag in which there were several pieces of paper and threads, which imply magic. What should I do with it?

One should look for its owner and give it to him. With despair of finding the owner, one should give it as a charity on the owner’s behalf. If the papers have the name(s) of Allah written on them, one should dispose of them by placing them in a river or the like. You should not be afraid of its effect and depend on Almighty Allah, and recite Ayatul Kursi as it is known that it is beneficial in such cases.
