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

Is it permissible to use permanent artificial teeth?

Yes, it is permissible to have artificial teeth.

Regarding khums, suppose I purchase a box of 100 pens from a store. But I only use 20 of those pens in one year. Is there khums due on the remaining 80 pens? Or are they all considered to be "used" as soon as I open the original box from the store? I have a similar question about a notebook. Suppose I buy a notebook with 100 pages and only use 20 of those pages. Is there khums due on the unused paper in that notebook (80 pages) after one year from its purchase? Or is khums no longer due the moment I wrote in one page of the notebook?

If what you need can only be obtained in a larger quantity, then khums is not applicable on what remains from that. For example, if you need a notebook of 20 pages, but you could not find a 20-page notebook, and the closest to it is a 100-page notebook, then the unused part of the notebook will not be subject to khums. Similarly, if you need 20 pens, and you can purchase 20 pens without needing to buy 100 pens, then the unused pens will be subject to khums.

Am I allowed to apply perfume when I go outside?

A woman is not allowed to apply perfume that can be smelled by non-mahram men.
