His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed al-Hakeem advised a group of Muslims from Pakistan towards love, compassion and tolerance amongst the various parts of its society, and to distance themselves from segregation, and all forms of enmity and hatred. As such, the Muslims can benefit from one another. He advised them to act according to the laws of Islam.
His Eminence presented this advice to a group of university teachers from Pakistan.
He further advised that they should continue the commemoration of special occasions and the pilgrimage to the holy sites, in order to enrich themselves from the lives of the holy personalities and to follow in their righteous footsteps.
To conclude the meeting, His Eminence mentioned a narration from the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny): “The believer is a structure for another believer, each supporting one another.”
He prayed that Allah Almighty supports them in acting in His obedience, and that He accepts their pilgrimage.

Day Questions

I usually prefer to be clean before I pray. Is it possible for me to perform the ghusl of janaba instead of wudhu even when I am not in the state of janaba before I offer my prayers?

The ghusls are ordained by the Sharia for particular causes and circumstances. If they are not present, then the ghusl is not legislated. For example, the ghusl of janaba is only for those in the state of janaba, and the ghusl of Friday is only related to Friday. In order to be clean for prayers, a shower or bath can be taken, but this will not be sufficient to enter the prayer. Wudhu will be necessary before prayers.

Does Islam permit the practice of artificial insemination?

By itself, it is permissible between the married couple.
