Press Release on the Terrorist Attacks during the month of Ramadan

"Those who do wrong will come to know by what a (great) reverse they will be overturned!" (Holy Quran 26:227)

The terrorist attacks against the innocent followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them) in Iraq have increased recently in various bombings of civilian gatherings in Baghdad and number of governates in Iraq during the Holy month of Ramadan. These terrorist acts have resulted in the martyrdom and wounding of hundreds of civilians, while the international, Islamic and Arabic organizations remain quiet. This confirms that these attacks are part of regional plot that will have dangerous consequences on the security of the regional and of the world.

As we ask Almighty Allah to send His mercy on the souls of the martyrs and to grant the wounded fast recovery. We strongly condemn these savage attacks and emphasize on the following:
Firstly: It is necessary for the Iraqi government and the Judiciary to fulfill their responsibility in bringing the perpetrators to justice and in protecting civilian citizens, especially the followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them) as they are the primary target of terrorism.
Secondly: We call the international community, especially the international organizations, to classify such crimes as crimes against humanity, since they are genocides that resulted from hate culture and shedding human blood on religious bases which are violations of the international laws and ethics.

"There is no power save from Allah, the All-High, the All-Great".

The Office of the Religious Authority, Sayyid Mohammed Saeed Al-Hakeem.

Day Questions

If I do not want my wife to be pregnant, is it permissible for me to use contraceptives to prevent such a pregnancy? Is the ruling different with a wife in temporary marriage?

<p style="text-align: left;">Yes, it is permissible to do so, whether the wife is in temporary marriage or permanent one.</p>

My baby's diaper starts leaking in the house and I am sure that one wet spot in the house is urine but I am not sure whether most of the other wet spots in the house are urine. There is a trail of wetness where he was running but I do not know if it is urine or something else. What should I do? Can I use bleach or chemical cleaning products or a mop?

<p style="text-align: left;">The suggested way does not return the purity of the place. Purification is done with the use of water. After the removal of impurity and when washed with little water, the place of impurity should be washed twice with collecting the water after each time. This can be done by a piece of cloth used to soak up. The collected water is impure so one should make sure that Najasah does not spread because of it. A bucket or a dish can be used near the Najis place to place the cloth with the impure collected water.<br /> If running water is used, it is enough to wash the place once with or after the removal of any traces of Najasah.<br /> To make sure the place is Tahir, all parts which are suspected to Najis must be made Tahir.</p>

I am a married woman, is there any form of birth control that I am permitted to use in order to prevent pregnancy?

<p style="text-align: left;">There are two scenarios, <br />Firstly: if childbirth will cause bodily harm, it is permissible to disable the reproductive system even if this is permanent in order to alleviate the harm.<br /> Secondly: it is permissible to temporarily disable the reproductive system, even if childbirth does not cause any bodily harm. However, if this involves prohibited exposing or touching of the body then it is not permissible except if there is a conventional necessity that requires this.</p>
