The Press Release on the Terrorist Attacks against the Shia in Egypt
2013/06/25

We strongly condemn the terrorist attacks that lead to the martyrdom and wounding of tens of innocent lovers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them) in Egypt and the dragging of deceased bodies along the ground that took place afterwards.

As we ask the Almighty Allah to send His mercy on the souls of the martyrs and to grant the wounded fast recovery, we call the government and the judiciary of Egypt to take the responsibility in bringing the perpetrators and those who motivated them with incitement verdicts to justice. In addition, we call the Egyptian government to take the necessary steps in preventing the recurrence of similar events.

We pray to the Almighty Lord to bless the efforts of Al-Azhar in promoting a culture of moderation and rejecting extremism and hatred, which distort the image of Muslims and rupture the unity of the peaceful Egyptian nation.

Day Questions

Is it permissible to work in a supermarket where alcoholic beverages are sold?

If it does not lead to being involved in selling them, then it is permissible.

For whom should we do Tawalli and from whom should we do Tabarri? What is the permissible or recommended way of doing Tawalli and Tabarri?

Tawalli is friendship and love for the Prophet and the Imams (peace be upon them) after him and their followers. Tabarri is the disassociation from the enemies of Allah including those who are obstinate to the truth and the deviated oppressors. The obligatory form of Tawalli and Tabarri is having them in the heart.
