His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah al-Sayyid Mohammed Saeed al-Hakeem, advised university students from Western countries to do good and beneficial deeds, and to co-exist with others in those societies in the best of ways, truthfulness and steadfastness, showing the true light of Islamic teachings and beliefs; and they should continue to strive to serve their religion. He gave this message while hosting a group of guests consisting of students from American and British universities.

His Eminence called his guests to fulfil their responsibilities in serving their religion, their faith, their values and to remain steadfast on them, and not to allow these things to melt away in such environments. They should invest themselves into their communities while remaining strong on their faith and connected to God Almighty, and following path of the Holy Prophet and the Imams (peace be upon them all).

To conclude the meeting, His Eminence, prayed for God Almighty to support them and give them strength and success, and he requested the guests to convey his advice and his greetings to the communities in which they live in.

Day Questions

If one has missed several prayers, must he offer the qadha prayers in an order (first Fajr, then Dhuhr, Asr etc..) or can he offer them in any order he wishes?

For a person who missed a full days' prayer, it is recommended to make them up in the order that they were missed. For a person who missed Maghrib and Isha prayers, or missed Dhuhr and Asr prayers, the first prayer must be made up first.

In today’s world the hunters, when hunting birds like ducks and geese, use lead shots as a weapon of killing, but not sharp objects. Are the meat of birds killed by non-sharp shots permissible to consume?

If the bullets are tapered, then the hunted animal is lawful to consume. If they were rounded in shape then the animal is not lawful to consume based on an obligatory precaution.
