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

Many people around the world believe in reincarnation. What is the view of Islam on reincarnation?

There is no doubt that reincarnation is an invalid concept. The entity of the human being does not change after death. Almighty Allah resurrects him after his death in his original form and identity and he will be judged for his actions. Allah almighty said "And whoso doeth good an atoms weight will see it then, And whoso doeth ill an atoms weight will see it then." (Quran 99:7-8)

Can we purchase a car where payment will be made in installments, although the total payment made will be higher than the normal price?

It is permissible to purchase a car or any other item by deferred payments for a price that is higher than its current market value. It is essential that the deal is set originally in such a way that the parties agree to the price and the times of installments.

As the intention is an act of the heart and not the tongue, why do some say the intention aloud while raising their hands for the Takbeer, and before the Iqamah has ended?

There is no need for uttering the intention or saying it out aloud. Rather, it is recommended not to talk - even by pronouncing the intention - during the Adhan or Iqamah. The dislike of this is stronger in the Iqamah, and even greater if one speaks after the phrase "Qad Qamatis-Salah" is recited. It is recommended to repeat the whole Iqamah if one talked during it. People's practice in pronouncing the intention originates from the fact that the intention is a condition in worship, without understanding that there is no need to pronounce it.
