The Press Release on the Terrorist Attack in Quetta Pakistan
2013/01/16

We were shocked by the heinous crime that was committed by the terrorists in the city of Quetta in Pakistan, that lead to the martyrdom and wounding of a huge number of innocent people. This crime is part of sequence of organized assaults against the followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them).

As we ask the Almighty Allah to send His mercy on the souls of the martyrs and to grant the wounded fast recovery, we condemn this crime and all crimes that were committed by the terrorist groups. These crimes violate all humane criterion and values, and they tarnish the image of Islam and the name of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny). We hold the Pakistani government responsible for protecting its own innocent citizens and to bring the perpetrators to justice. We also consider the silence of the Muslim dignitaries and foundations and the carelessness of the international community as important factors that encourage the terrorists to continue shedding blood of innocent people.

I know the Sunnis say the Quran is not created and the Mutazilites say it is. I don’t know what the Shia view is?

The Holy Quran is the words of the Almighty Allah that happened and did not exist before, so it is one of Allah's creations.

I am trying to build a spiritual connection with Almighty Allah but I have some problems; I do not know how relaxed I should be because of how merciful god is, also I do not know how fearful I should be because of how severe He is in punishment.

<p style="text-align: left;">The religious texts indicate that the believer is urged to balance between fear and hope so he should not deem himself secure from the scheme of Allah, nor should he despairs from the mercy of Allah. If this is done, the individual will have the motive to the obedience because his hope in the mercy makes him convinced in the advantage of the action; and his fear from the wrath of Almighty Allah makes him avoiding the sins.</p>
