The Meeting of His Eminence with the Managers of the Mawakib of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him)

His Eminence Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Mohamed Saeed al-Hakeem advised those who serve at the mawakib of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him), that they be strong armour for the genuine religion of Islam, for the true path of the Ahlullbait (peace be upon them), and for the Islamic seminary (Howzah), by attaching themselves to the teachings from Imam Hussain’s (peace be upon him) life, and informing people of his great cause for which he sacrificed himself alongside his family and companions, and by engraining this in the future generations.

His Eminence gave this advice to a delegation of managers of the mawakib of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him), in Najaf on Wednesday 28 Dhil-Hijjah 1438 (20 September 2017).

His Eminence also called them to understand that their creed has become greater and elevated, and the nations of the world respect it due to the commitment the believers have in abiding by the laws of God and avoiding from the sins, and safeguarding the teachings of the Infallibles (peace be upon them) and following their footsteps.

His Eminence also invited the managers of the mawakib of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him.) and the mourners of Imam Hussain (Peace be upon him) to adhere to the expressions of grief over of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them).

The meeting was concluded by praying for their success and divine support, and asked them to spread the spirit of harmony and love and unity amongst each other, appreciating their efforts and the time they have spent in serving the pilgrims to the holy shrines, as well as the giving of support to the peace forces and the popular mobilisation which has reached the north and west of Iraq.

Day Questions

While I wash an object or my body from najasah, and water splashes onto a place which is tahir, will that place also become najis? Is there a difference if the water I am washing it with is Kurr or Qaleel?

If the water used in the process of cleaning is little (qaleel), then the water that splashes off the najasah is najis and causes wherever it lands to also become najis. The exception to this ruling is the water used for istinja, (the process of cleaning the private parts after urination or defecation), in which case the water splashes will be tahir. If 'immune water' is used, then it is tahir after it splashes off the najasah, and does not cause other objects that it comes in contact with to become najis.Immune water is categorized into three types: (a) water that has reached the amount of kurr – approximately 464 kg, and it is better to consider it as 470 kg;(b) water that which has a source, such as spring water, well water, and tap water which is connected to a large tank or mains water supply;(c) rain water during rainfall.

Is the lack of redness in the sky one of the signs of the time of Maghrib?

The time of Maghrib prayer is the setting of the sun. If there is doubt about it, then one should wait till he is certain that the sun has set. The disappearance of the redness in the eastern sky is an indication that the sun has indeed set.
