The Press Release on the Terrorist Attack against Tuz Khormato - Iraq

The terrorist attacks against the innocent followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them) have increased recently in tens of bombings of civilian gatherings in a number of governates in Iraq. These terrorist acts include targeting the followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them) in the city of Tuz khormato, attacking worshippers in Mosques, youths in the stadiums, visitors of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) in their way back and many others. 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 judiciary system to take the 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.
We also emphasize on the importance of allowing the people of the targetted areas like Tuz Khormato and Tal Afar to protect their own cities.
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.

Day Questions

My question is regarding the status of Ayesha bint Abi Bakr. I recently had a heated argument whereby this person who is also a Shia claimed that Shias must address Ayesha bint Abi Bakr as Umm Al Mumineen as it was addressed by Allah in the Quran. Should Shias call her Umm Al Mumineen?

Holy Quran called the wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him and holy progeny) as the mothers of believers. There is no doubt that this name applies to them, but there is no obligation to mention it every time the name of a wife is mentioned and this does not mean that they are excluded from committing sins. Everyone Allah Almighty creates is subject to the general divine rule that everyone bears the responsibilities of their actions, as Almighty Allah said: "And whoso doeth good an atoms weight will see it then, And whoso doeth ill an atoms weight will see it then." (99:7-8).

Is it permissible to watch movies and TV shows, where female actors are in it?

<p style="text-align: left;">It is permissible to watch them, unless it causes lust and desire.</p>

If one performs tayammum instead of ghusl of janabah, how long will its taharah last? Is its affect the same as that for the ghusl, so it lasts until the next time one sustains a major occurrence (hadath akbar) like janabah, menstruation or touching a dead body?

<p style="text-align: left;">The tayammum becomes invalid with the elimination of the justification that caused one to perform tayammum. For example, if the patient who performed the tayammum instead of ghusl due to his illness was cured, then the tayammum is invalid immediately and ghusl will be required. The tayammum also becomes invalid also if the justification continued but the individual sustained another major occurrence (hadath akbar).</p>
