The Meeting of the Special Representative of the UN Secretary General with His Eminence

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.

Day Questions

Can a man wear a chain with a ring (not gold) on his neck?

<p style="text-align: left;">Wearing the ring in a chain around one’s neck by itself is permissible, unless doing so is considered to be imitation of women or it leads to humiliation or similar results which are prohibited to bring about, in which cases it becomes impermissible.</p>

I have small cut on my arm; it is smaller than the size of a “Dirham”. May I perform Wudhu on it when the blood becomes dry?

If the wound is on the parts of the Wudhu then it is obligatory to remove the dry blood and perform the Wudhu. If the wound is not on such parts, the blood still has to be removed before offering the prayer even if the amount of dry blood is less than the “Dirham” based on compulsory precaution.

Are Muslims allowed to wear leather jackets or belts that are not made by Muslims?

<p style="text-align: left;">It is permissible to wear it except in prayers. It is considered to be Najis so one should purify whatever it touches with dampness like the hands.</p>

Is the blood of an Imam or a Prophet Najis?

It is not fruitful to discuss such issues that do not concern us. The Imam knows his duties best.

If one causes something to become Najis that is used by others as well, is it obligatory to inform them?

It is not obligatory to do so, unless the contaminated thing was Tahir and its owner trusted the individual to inform him of its condition if it becomes Najis.
