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

If a Christian woman converts to Islam and her husband does not, how long is her iddah? What if they both convert to Islam together?

If the wife and the husband embraced Islam together, the marriage remains valid. If the wife embraced Islam before consummating the marriage but the husband did not, then the marriage contract is void. If she converted to Islam after consummating the marriage, then she should wait for the duration of the iddah. If the husband converts to Islam during the iddah period, then the marriage remains valid. If he did not convert at all, or he converted after the completion of the duration of iddah, then the marriage contract is void. The iddah in such a case is the same as the iddah of divorce, which is the period until she sees the beginning of her third menses.

I am a new Muslim I have been following Sunni Islam I have now read some books on Shia Islam and I would like to become a Shia but there is no Shia mosque where I live can I still pray like a Sunni and go to the Sunni mosque?

There is nothing wrong with visiting Sunni Mosques but the prayer should be according to the sect of the Ahlulbait as believing in their path imposes the believer to so do as they are the smallest amongst the two weighty things that the Prophet (peace be upon him) commend us to refer to.
