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

My question is about beating our chest in month of Moharram, is it permissible?

Beating the chests in the ceremonies of Moharam is one of the examples of expressing the sadness and grief to what happened to the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) in the tragedy of Karbala.

Do all toes need to be wiped during in wudhu, or just the last toe?

It suffices in the correctness of the wudhu to perform what is considered as wiping, even if it is on one toe.

Does a wife have the right to stop her husband from having temporary marriage contract with another woman?

The wife can ask the husband not to remarry again but it is not obligatory on the husband to accept her request.

What is the ruling if the couple who is contracting temporary marriage forgets to mention the marriage period? If it becomes a permanent marriage, can they end the marriage with divorce? If so, what are the rulings in regards to witnesses and the Iddah?

Yes, the marriage becomes permanent. The marriage is ended by divorce which requires two Adil men to witness it. The regular waiting period of Iddah of divorce must be observed if the marriage was consummated, but if the marriage was not consummated then there would be no need to observe the Iddah.
