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

Is it permissible to conduct or summon spirits of our past relatives, considering it is done through the Quran?

The mentioned act is permissible by itself, but it is not permissible to believe in the information that can be retrieved by such ways. It is probable that the contact made by such ways is not with the intended spirits, but one could be a victim of the mischief of the devils and jinn so we warn from such things.

A married woman inherited a share of land from her maternal grandfather along with her two sisters. She does not have any children. If the woman dies how will the inheritance of that share of land be divided between her existing family members?

The husband is given half of her inheritance and the rest is distributed between her sisters equally. If her husband has passed away before her then her sisters get the inheritance equally.

Are there different forms of Tashahud taught by Imams including the one which includes the third testimony?

The forms of Tashahud narrated from the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) do not include the third testimony.

If kurr water comes into contact with najasah, does it automatically become najis too?

If water reaches kurr, it does not become najis by simply coming into contact with najasah. It becomes najis when the najasah changes the color of the water, its taste or its smell.
