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.

A person after urinating performs wudhu. He then performs prayer. During his prayer he feels that he has excreted a fluid from his urinary organ, but there is uncertainty as to the actual type of fluid. What is the state of his prayer now? Is it invalid?

<p style="text-align: left;">If he did istibra, which is the process of ensuring that there is no urine left in the urethra, or if he knew that the urethra had no urine left because he waited for some time after urination or because of any other reason, then the prayer is valid and he should not pay attention to this doubt.<br /> If this was not the case, and he doubts whether the liquid was urine or not, then he should treat it as urine, consider the wudhu and the prayer as void, and purify the body and clothes that the liquid came into contact with.</p>

I wanted to ask your viewpoint of Islamic unity with Sunni?

There is no doubt that Islam is one religion that was revealed by Almighty Allah to the Seal of Prophets (peace be upon him). He suffered much pain and harm in order to deliver the message of Islam to the nation. He directed his nation to the right direction after his death when he ordered them to guard the teachings of the Quran and the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them). He guaranteed that if both were adhered to, they will never be misguided. Part of the nation of Islam abandoned the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) and the differences between the nation of Islam became a reality. We, as followers of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) should act upon their teachings and uphold their directions to the right path, while dealing with the rest of the Muslims with good manners and etiquettes, and not raise the differences or cause hatred against them, since we all believe in Almighty Allah and His Messenger and the common religious obligations, like prayers, zakat, fasting, pilgrimage, etc., in order to preserve the general entity of Islam. The teachings of the Imams (peace be upon them) emphasize this in various ways.

What is the difference between Sunnis and Salafis?

<p style="text-align: left;">Al-Salafiya is a sect which is distinct from other sects due to their particular articles of faith and religious laws, in which the prevailing concept is to denounce the Muslims who disagree with them in their beliefs as non-believers, whether they are Shia or Sunni. However, in order to obtain the support of the Sunnis, they have made the Shias their primary target, while the Sunnis do not share their deviant beliefs. In fact, the Sunnis and the Shias have lived together in harmony in all parts of the Islamic lands for a very long time.</p>
