>His Eminence Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Mohammed Sa’eed Al-Hakeem called the international community, including the United Nations, to assess the true reality of Iraq, and to express clearly the parties which believe in peace and peaceful co-existence, and to document the crimes that have occurred on the Iraqis by the terrorists, and to bring to account those parties who supported and funded the terrorists.

He made this statement on Tuesday 2nd Rabi-al-Awwal 1439, in a meeting with Ms. Agnes Callamard, the Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary or arbitrary executions at the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner of Human Rights.

Ms. Callamard valued the positions of the religious Marja'iyya and its peaceful communication, which had and still has a powerful good effect on the hearts of people. She emphasized that Iraq has an opportunity to build for itself a future built upon human rights.

Day Questions

For those that have a Sayyida mother, but whose father is not a Sayyid, are they permitted to collect Zakat of Eidul-Fitr?

They are not considered as Hashemite, so they are permitted to collect Zakatul-Fitra. The Zakat of non-Hashemite cannot be given to a needy Hashemite.

Is it permissible to keep a cat as a pet? Is their hair najis?

It is permissible to keep a cat as a pet and its hair is not najis, but if cat hair sticks to one’s clothes his prayer is invalid as an obligatory precaution.

May a person celebrate his or somebody elses birthday?

Yes, it is permissible, provided that this does not involve another prohibition.

Is it right for Sayyids to treat us non-Sayyids poorly and as a low caste?

Nobody has the right to humiliate anybody else. Everyone belongs to Adam and Eve. Sayyids – as they are the descendants of the Prophet – are supposed to follow the footsteps of their grandfather (peace be upon him and his pure progeny). He was the highest example of humbleness and high ethics. He also emphasized on equality between people and the differentiation is only by good deeds.

I am not satisfied in my job. I am trying my best to get another job but not succeeded. Kindly give some advice or dua.

Seek forgiveness from the Almighty Allah and praising Mohamed and his household (peace be upon them) - reciting "Salewat" repeatedly as they are one of the acts that make the calls answered.
