>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

I have performed my first Hajj, and I did the Taqseer of my hair based on what I have read, and not Halq (complete shaving). Is this sufficient?

One who performs the pilgrimage (Hajj) for the first time must shave the hair (halq) and not shorten it (taqseer). Since you did not deliberately contravene the ruling, then your pilgrimage is in order and you are not liable for Kaffara.

Is it permissible to have temporary marriage with a Muslim virgin girl who is responsible financially for herself but she lives with her parents?

It is permissible to get temporarily married and it is unlawful to have intercourse with a virgin except with the permission of her father or paternal grandfather, even if she is financially responsible for herself. If both of them are dead or cannot be reached to seek their permission then she is in charge of herself.
