Press Release on the American Administration’s Decision to Move the US Embassy to Jerusalem
2017/12/10

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is to God, the Lord of the worlds; and may God send his blessings on our master Mohammed and his holy progeny.

We condemn the decision of the American administration to move the US Embassy to the occupied city of Jerusalem, as it is an affront to the Palestinian people and disregard for the feelings of Muslims.

We want to point out that this stance is a natural consequence of the distancing of the Muslims from the teachings of their true religion, their neglect of their shared matters and interests, their fighting amongst themselves, and the spread of the epidemic of extremism and terrorism which has targeted them, and destroyed their societies and their towns, and has distorted the name of their religion. God Almighty has said: “And obey God, and obey the Messenger, and do not into disputes, lest you lose heart and your power departs.”

Today, all are invited – especially those fostering and supporting terrorism – to seriously revise their previous stances, and to open a new page, to unify the positions of the Islamic nations and to build firm foundations in establishing good relations with other nations, which reflects the pliability of their religion and its genuine values.

We seek support and help from only Him, and He is the guardian of the believers

Day Questions

Many people who are not Sayyids claim that there is no difference between a Sayyid and a non-Sayyid. Is this considered to be an insult to them?

If they meant by what they are saying that God-fearing is the criteria in the nobility of the person based on what the Messenger of Allah has said: “There is no difference between an Arab and a non-Arab except by Taqwa (God-fearing),” then that is not an insult or humiliation for the offspring of the Prophet, as the offspring of the Prophet is expected more than other people to act upon the Sharia of their grandfather (peace be upon him and his holy progeny). If they mean to eliminate the respect for the children of the Prophet in society, then this is not right as there is no doubt that it is a good thing to respect the noble progeny, as it is respect for the Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny) himself.

If someone has a bandage on his wound, how can he perform wudhu? Can tayammum be performed instead?

If the bandaging is tahir and its size was usual for the wound, then it is sufficient in the correctness of wudhu and ghusl to wipe over it. One cannot perform tayammum in this case.
