The Press Release on the Attack in Nigeria
2016/07/02

We strongly condemn the savage attack that resulted in the horrible massacre against the Muslim followers of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) in Nigeria.

The circumstances and the intensity of the tragedy suggest the suspicious meditated intention of parties who do not care about the stability of the country or about the harmony between the sects of the nation.

We hold the Government of Nigeria fully responsible in investigating the circumstances of the tragedy, bringing the criminals to justice, freeing the innocents, and preventing this from taking place again.

We call the concerned international communities to uphold their responsibility in condemning this crime and pressuring those who caused it.

We ask Almighty Allah to grant the wounded fast recovery, to have His mercy on the souls of the victims and to give patience to their relatives. He is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.

Day Questions

I am in the process of selecting a marja to emulate, and have been recommended His Eminence Sayyid al-Hakeem. Can I rely on his book of Islamic laws in order to decide to follow him?

It is obligatory on individuals to follow the most knowledgeable when possible and that can be determined by referring to the experts who are able to determine who this is. It is not permissible for lay people to base the choice of their marja on learning about his verdicts and feeling comfortable with them.
