His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid al-Hakeem called the students of the Seminary towards mastering knowledge through insight and deliberation, and to abstain from hastening to making judgements that could be far from the standards and principles set by the Quran and taught by the Infallibles (peace be upon them) for all the Muslims. He said this to the students of Al-Mustafa University of the holy city of Qum, Iran, of various nationalities.
He also advised them to bear the trials and many difficult circumstances that they face in studying and will face in preaching. They will face those people in their homelands who might not have understanding or they might implement no teaching of religion. Therefore, it is necessary to be fortified in being accurate and precise in the jurisprudential sciences and the religious edicts, far from confusion. One should takes these teachings with solid proof, and from their original and pristine sources, with wisdom and accuracy, so that they may be presented to others in a convincing and calm way.
His Eminence concluded his talk by praying to the Almighty that He accepts their Ziyarah and that He supports them in their missions in bearing the enormous responsibility of spreading the word of Islam.

Day Questions

I have been facing problems in urinating for the last many years. Even after I have completely passed urine, some drops of urine continuously keep coming out after I leave the bathroom. I am facing difficulty in praying as I cannot change my clothes again and again. What should I do?

One should observe the taharah of the clothes during the prayer as the prayer is void with najis clothes. With respect to wudhu, you can perform the prayer at a time the urine is not released from you, even by delaying it to the end of the prescribed time - but not beyond it - and even if you shorten the prayers by omitting the second chapter after al-Fatiha and by omitting the recommended acts of the prayer. If this is not possible, then it is permissible to offer the prayer even with the release of the urine but one should join the Dhuhr and Asr prayers with one wudhu, and similarly the Maghrib and Isha prayers with one wudhu.

Is it necessary to take off the turban on the day of Ashura and on the night of the 11th of Muharram?

Removing the turban is not obligatory but it could be - in some countries and based on certain conventional understandings - an expression of sadness and grief on what had happened to Imam Hussein and the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) in Karbala when they faced numerous kinds of tragedies like their decapitation and placing their heads on spears.

What is the ruling if one forgets to perform Tawaf al-Nisa in Umrah Mufrada and returns back home? Should he go again in Ihram and preform Tawaf al-Nisa?

One should do the Tawaf by himself or hire someone else to do it on his behalf. Women are prohibited for him until he does so.

Is mourning Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) permissible or recommended?

The commemoration of the Ahlulbait (Peace be upon them) is amongst the best deeds that the religious texts have emphasized on, and it is narrated that there are great rewards for those who perform it.
