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

I have heard that it is prohibited to cut ties with one's relatives. Is that true? Does this also include relatives who have left Islam, or mock it and its followers?

It is permissible to communicate with such people because there is a possibility that they might come back to the right path as a result of such ties. However, in some cases such communication encourages them to do wrong. Then, it becomes prohibited.

Do you have any dua there in wishing to die? I want to die, I gave up. Please help me. What dua?

There is no dua for wishing to die. It is not amongst the characters of a believer to wish to die nor to ask his Lord for such an issue, a believer is rather expected to call Almighty Allah to remove the hardship and decrease its effect on him as He is All Merciful.
