His Eminence Grand Ayatollah al-Hakeem advises the preachers from Pakistan to reach the remote areas to spread the message of Islam and the Ahlulbait

His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad Saeed al-Hakeem spoke to male and female preachers from Pakistan of the necessity of reaching the remote areas of Pakistan in order to teach the people there the Islamic laws, and to invite them to the True Path, and to propagate to them the message of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them).

This advice was also directed especially towards the female preachers. After exerting their efforts in learning and studying, they must undertake their duties as preachers, by explaining the Islamic laws pertaining to women, so that the women can benefit from them in those areas. His Eminence continued to advise preachers towards having good behavior and etiquettes, humility, and keeping close to other believers, so that every one of them can fulfil their duties towards God in a manner that pleases Him, the Prophet and the Infallibles (peace be upon them all).

At the end, His Eminence supplicated to God that He accept the guests’ ziyarah and good deeds, and He answers their calls, and He supports them in their endeavors and duties, while interacting with others with love, compassion, honesty and humility. He prayed that He gives them the fruit of their good acts in this life and in the Hereafter. He is, indeed, All-Hearing, All-Knowing.

Day Questions

I have been facing problems in urinating for the last many years. Even after I have completely passed urine, some drops of urine continuously keep coming out after I leave the bathroom. I am facing difficulty in praying as I cannot change my clothes again and again. What should I do?

One should observe the taharah of the clothes during the prayer as the prayer is void with najis clothes. With respect to wudhu, you can perform the prayer at a time the urine is not released from you, even by delaying it to the end of the prescribed time - but not beyond it - and even if you shorten the prayers by omitting the second chapter after al-Fatiha and by omitting the recommended acts of the prayer. If this is not possible, then it is permissible to offer the prayer even with the release of the urine but one should join the Dhuhr and Asr prayers with one wudhu, and similarly the Maghrib and Isha prayers with one wudhu.

What is the proper method of performing istibra after urinating?

The best way to perform the istibra is by moving the fingers from the anus to the root of the penis applying pressure three times, then squeezing the penis from its root to its tip three times, and then squeezing the tip of the penis three times.
