His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid al-Hakeem called the students of the Seminary towards mastering knowledge through insight and deliberation, and to abstain from hastening to making judgements that could be far from the standards and principles set by the Quran and taught by the Infallibles (peace be upon them) for all the Muslims. He said this to the students of Al-Mustafa University of the holy city of Qum, Iran, of various nationalities.
He also advised them to bear the trials and many difficult circumstances that they face in studying and will face in preaching. They will face those people in their homelands who might not have understanding or they might implement no teaching of religion. Therefore, it is necessary to be fortified in being accurate and precise in the jurisprudential sciences and the religious edicts, far from confusion. One should takes these teachings with solid proof, and from their original and pristine sources, with wisdom and accuracy, so that they may be presented to others in a convincing and calm way.
His Eminence concluded his talk by praying to the Almighty that He accepts their Ziyarah and that He supports them in their missions in bearing the enormous responsibility of spreading the word of Islam.

Day Questions

If someone makes a promise to finish the quran, and whilst reading he makes mistakes in the recitation, does he have to go back and correct it or can he carry on?

The subject of the vow is the correct recitation in the normal way based on the information the person possess. If he paid attention to the mistake during the recitation, then he should correct them. If he paid attention to the mistakes after reciting for some time or after finishing the recitation, then it is not obligated to repeat the recitation correctly although it is better the repeat the verse that was read incorrectly by itself.

Can I rely on "Ilm-e-Jufar" and "Ilm-e-Adad" to make my life decisions?

It is not permissible to inform others of information from such sources in a sure way, nor is it permissible to believe in information derived in such a way, and we advise you to avoid such issues.

How many daughters did the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) have?

Apparently, Fatima Al-Zahra (peace be upon her) is the only daughter of the prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny). Others like Zainab and Rouqayyah are daughters of Khadijah. Some even say that they were Khadija’s step-daughters.

A person is a tenant of a property owned by a Shia Waqf organization. That person refuses to pay the agreed rent amount. Can such a person offer prayers in his house where the arrears are still outstanding and are such prayers valid?

If the said property is used by a person without paying its due rent then he is considered as a ghasib (usurper) and the prayer in such a place - if he is attentive of the fact that it is prohibited - is void.
