The Press Release on the Terrorist Attack against Tuz Khormato - Iraq
2017/09/26

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.

"There is no power save from Allah, the All-High, the All-Great"

Day Questions

Has the Quran undergone alteration - tahrif of the order of its verses, or is the order of the verses the same order as that during the time of our Holy prophet (PBUHF)?

The sequence of the verses is same as the sequence in the time of the Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon him and his holy progeny).

Is the testimony of Imam Ali's (peace be upon him) Wilayah permissible to be recited, while it is recited in the Adhan and Iqamah?

It is unlawful to recite the third testimony during the prayers since it is not amongst the divinely authorized words that are allowed to be recited in prayer. Intentionally reciting it then makes the prayer void. It is allowed to recite it during other worships, like prayers on the deceased or during the Adhan as they do not have the condition of not including human-formulated words.

It is said that many books of jurisprudence were destroyed which may have had information, but Allah completed the religion on the Day of Ghadeer. Does not the completion of the religion include us knowing every rule in Islam?

The completion of the religion on the day of Al-Ghadeer was the appointment of the Imam to succeed the Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) and represent him in propagating the Sharia and leading the nation. The Imams (peace be upon them) paid a lot of attention towards informing all the aspects of the religion especially the practical laws of the Sharia. The companions of the Imams propagated their teachings, and compiled the narrations (ahadeeth) in books. Although some of these books were destroyed, these traditions and narrations have survived and still act as a main source of Islamic research. Scholars have continuously strived to pass on these teachings from generation to generation for the sake of protecting the religion and its laws. As a result, the jurist can give their edicts in any practical issue, in such a way that the individual is not left unanswered.

What is the Grand Ayatollah as-Sayyid Muhammad Saeed Tabatabi Al-Hakeem’s view of the current Quran we have today, I would like to know his belief on the order of the verses of the Quran?

The current sequence of the verses is the same as the sequence at the time of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and that is because of the naming of the chapters – Suras that we inherited from that era.
