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
2019/06/11

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

Who are authorized to answer questions from the official website of his Eminence? Are all the answers from this site given personally by him or a team of his students or the like?

Any question received via the internet or otherwise is read carefully by a number of senior students. If the answer is found in his book of practical Islamic laws or if it is similar to a previously answered question, it will be answered accordingly. If the answer is not found, the question is then presented to his Eminence (may Allah prolong his life) to address it.

If an Islamic food authority is providing halal meat, but one doubts whether Allah's name has been mentioned over it, will it be permissible to eat?

If the meat is taken from a Muslim and there is a probability that he slaughtered it in accordance to the Sharia, then it is permissible to consume it.

Many Sunni scholars insist that hijra - immigration is a necessity. I am a convert born in a non-Muslim country, and if I were to leave it would most probably entail losing custody of my children. What is the Shia opinion of hijra?

It is not mandatory to immigrate to Islamic countries. A Muslim must live in any place where he/she can observe the religion to find happiness in this life and the hereafter. There might be a non Islamic country with more suitable circumstance for Muslims to guard their religion than in an Islamic one.
