His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohamed Saeed al-Hakeem received a group of reverts from Germany, France and Italy. Amongst them was a French youth who professed Islam and gave his Testimonies of Faith in the presence of His Eminence.

His Eminence advised the believers of the West to fortify themselves by abiding by the laws of Islam, and that they behave with the best of etiquettes, following in the footsteps of the Infallibles (peace be upon them), which they gave many sacrifices to preserve.

In the end of this meeting, His Eminence expressed his happiness on their guidance to the right path, and he called them to remain aloof from confusions and Satanic attacks, through further fortitude and faith, and he prayed to the Almighty to support them in their obedience to Him and that He accepts their pilgrimage, and that they see its blessings and bounties in this world and the Hereafter.
