His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad Saeed al-Hakeem directed the students of Iraqi universities towards investing into the sorrowful tragedy of Karbala and to gain from it in today’s era. The tragedy calls to the true path of salvation and achievement of this word and the Hereafter. He gave these words of guidance to a contingent of medical and engineering students from various parts of the country on 16th September 2018.
Similarly, he advised them to make use of the educational courses of beliefs and Sharia laws, so that one can form a strong foundation of reality and pass it on to others; one can thus avoid misguidance from the truth. One should try to fully comprehend the revolution of Imam Husain (peace be upon him) and his sacrifices, as he gave everything that he had for the cause of the religion and its sanctity, so that his mission and purpose can give fruit to a path to it, all in the interest of this religion and in the struggle against deviation and unveiling falsification.
In the end of this meeting, His Eminence prayed to the Most High and Powerful to accept their pilgrimage, (Zyarat) and their good deeds, and to support them to the path that pleases Him. Indeed He is the Al-Hearing and the Responder to supplications.

Day Questions

Does His Eminence give his followers in Russia the general right to use Sahm-ul-Imam on their own accord?

There is no general permission to the believers, whether they are in Russia or not, to spend the share of the Imam (peace be upon him) without the consent of the office of his Eminence or the scholars that are proven to be his agents.

I had made the uncle of my wife my wakil (agent) in order to divorce her; however, a week prior to the divorce, I changed my mind. Her uncle was out-of-reach for me to contact him, so I informed my wife that I no longer wished for him to be my agent and requested that she inform him. However, he went ahead with the divorce anyway. Is this divorce I no longer wished for valid or not valid?

The agent is not dismissed without being informed of such dismissal, either by the principle himself or by a trustworthy person. If such notification was not given to the agent, then the divorce is valid. However, the divorce can be revoked by returning to the marriage relationship during the waiting period, if the divorce was revocable.

Can we keep models of the shrines of the Imams (peace be upon them) in our homes and mosques and seek our wishes from them?

It is permissible to seek the blessings from whatever is related to the Prophet and the Imams (peace be upon them all). Seeking one's wishes from them is basically seeking intercession from them because of their high rank and closeness to Almighty Allah.
