Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed al-Hakeem praised the sacrifices of the oppressed female freed prisoners of the Shiite Turkmen and Shabak, who were subjected to a great injustice, by the Dash criminals, who invaded the sanctities, sacred places and souls. His Eminence recommended all, especially believers, tribal chiefs and others to be proud of them and respected them, and honored them.

This took place during the reception of His Eminence to the female prisoners of the Shia Turkmen and Shabak, Tuesday, the 16th of July, 2019 who were freed from the hands of Dash criminal gangs.

His eminence, advised them to at the highest level of psychological comfort and since the oppressed should not consider injustice to be a disgrace to him. His eminence was pointing to the words of Imam Ali (peace be upon him): “a believer is not belittled when being oppressed.

At the end of the reception, His eminence asked the Almighty Allah to avenge them from their oppressors, and to compensate them with the best awards in this world and the hereafter.

Day Questions

One found out from a reliable source that a brand of meat claiming to be halal is in fact not. He told his mother. She asked another source who claimed otherwise. She is asking him to buy the meat for her. Is it permissible for him to buy such a meat for her?

If the meat is taken from a Muslim or Muslims’ market, then one is permitted to sell it and buy it and do so on behalf of others. It is not permissible to buy or sell it if he came to know or two Adil witnesses testify that the said meat is not slaughtered in accordance to the Sharia. Doubting of some people is not sufficient to consider it as non-Halal meat as long as it is possible to be slaughtered in accordance to the Sharia and it is taken from a Muslim or bought from Muslims’ market.

Many people who are not Sayyids claim that there is no difference between a Sayyid and a non-Sayyid. Is this considered to be an insult to them?

If they meant by what they are saying that God-fearing is the criteria in the nobility of the person based on what the Messenger of Allah has said: “There is no difference between an Arab and a non-Arab except by Taqwa (God-fearing),” then that is not an insult or humiliation for the offspring of the Prophet, as the offspring of the Prophet is expected more than other people to act upon the Sharia of their grandfather (peace be upon him and his holy progeny). If they mean to eliminate the respect for the children of the Prophet in society, then this is not right as there is no doubt that it is a good thing to respect the noble progeny, as it is respect for the Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) himself.
