In the meeting, he called the international community and the governments of the world to further interaction, cooperation and empathy, as well as enabling nations to visit one another. This will do away with the tensions and troubles which have come about around the world due to the political battles, and it is the weak members of society who are most affected by this.

His Eminence explained to the guest the role of Marji’iyyah in al-Najaf al-Ashraf in guiding the followers of the Ahlulbyte to live peacefully wherever they are, even amongst their adversaries, and this is the path that they have followed for 1400 years, taught by the Infallible Imams (peace be upon them). His Eminence cited the words of Amir al-Momineen (peace be upon him) to Malik al-Ashtar whom he appointed governor over Egypt: “Habituate your heart to mercy for the subjects and to affection and kindness for them. Do not stand over them like greedy beasts seizing their prey, since they are of two kinds: either your brother in religion or one like you in creation.”

The guest, Dr. Pradeep Singh Rajpurohit, expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to meet with His Eminence, and for the guidance and directives of the Marji’iyyah, which has great respect from the Indian government.

Day Questions

I live where Muslims live in negligible ratio. There is no Muslim milkman. So is it allowed for us to take milk from a non-Muslim?

It is permissible to buy milk from non-Muslims, but if he is not from the People of the book – Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians - and you know that they touched it, it becomes najis and not permissible to consume based on an obligatory precaution.

Why did God create humans? Did he want to achieve his goal that humans should worship and love him willingly?

The Holy Quran states clearly the reason for creating humanity: "I created the jinn and humankind only that they might worship Me." (51:56)
