His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed Al-Hakeem, on 16 February 2020, received a group of youth from Baghdad, children of martyrs who died fighting in the Popular Mobilization Forces (Al-Hashd Al-Sha’bi) against Daesh.

His Eminence praised the clear and manifest courage of their fathers and their sacrifice for their religion, their homeland and the holy shrines. By the grace of Allah and through their sacrifice and spilling of their noble blood, they were victorious over the enemies.

His Eminence called them to follow the Holy Prophet and the Imams of the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them all), and that their ethics and morals should by distinctly higher than others, and that they should adhere to the teachings of the Sharia.

His Eminence concluded by praying to the Most High and Mighty to provide support for them and to support those who serve and help the orphans, that their Ziyarah is accepted, and that they see the blessings of it in this life and the Hereafter. He finally requested that his greetings and best wishes be conveyed to their families.

Day Questions

His Eminence has said whenever a najis thing comes in contact with something else with transferring dampness, it will be come najis too, no matter how many things may be in the chain of the transferring of najasah. Would this not mean that everything around us is najis?

This does not make everything najis, since one is not aware that they had been in contact with najis things with dampness, or one is sure that a particular thing became tahir and najis without knowing which one was first. In such cases it is considered to be tahir.

Is it permissible for a man to look at the photo of a girl who he is well-acquainted with, who observes hijab, but is not wearing the hijab in this particular photo?

It is permissible to look at the picture without sexual desire. But if looking at her is shameful for her, as she observes the hijab, or is respected in the society, and similar reasons, it is prohibited to look at the photograph even without lust.

Is my husband allowed to forbid me from contacting my family if he has a problem with them?

You do not have to obey him in this issue unless your contact involves leaving the house without his permission or the usage of a means of communication that belongs to him. However, it is better to convince him to allow it.

I got married, but did not consummate the marriage, so I am still a virgin. My husband is not in the same country. He might divorce me without asking whether I am in my menstruation period or not. Would the divorce be valid?

It is irrelevant whether you are in the mensuration period or not in the validity of the divorce if the marriage was not consummated, i.e. sexual intercourse did not occur.
