The grand authority, his eminence Sayyid Al-Hakeem (may Allah prolong his life) met on the 4th of Moharram, 1435 with the special representative of the United Nations Secretary-General for Iraq, Mr. Nickolay Mladenov in the Office of his eminence in the Holy city of Najaf.

His eminence stressed on the necessity to expose and condemn the bloody systematic campaign against the followers of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) worldwide, and specifically in Iraq in an unprecedented way. It is supported by some regional countries and other countries; where the terrorists are provided with various killing means, political cover and incitement verdicts using public media.

His eminence called the United Nations to act upon its duties and respond to these massive violations as clear examples of genocides and crimes against humanity.

Mr. Nickolay Mladenov promised to convey all of this to the United Nations Secretary General and present it to the Security Council.

I read the supplication against black magic. It is stated that one should write this supplication on deer skin. Can I use something else to write on because it is hard to find deer skin?

We are not aware of the method mentioned, but there are some narrations that state that in order to annul magic one can recite the verse 10:81 of the Holy Quran (“That which you have brought is magic. Allah will make it vain. Allah upholds not the work of mischief-makers.” (10:81).
