Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed al-Hakeem praised the sacrifices of the oppressed female freed prisoners of the Shiite Turkmen and Shabak, who were subjected to a great injustice, by the Dash criminals, who invaded the sanctities, sacred places and souls. His Eminence recommended all, especially believers, tribal chiefs and others to be proud of them and respected them, and honored them.

This took place during the reception of His Eminence to the female prisoners of the Shia Turkmen and Shabak, Tuesday, the 16th of July, 2019 who were freed from the hands of Dash criminal gangs.

His eminence, advised them to at the highest level of psychological comfort and since the oppressed should not consider injustice to be a disgrace to him. His eminence was pointing to the words of Imam Ali (peace be upon him): “a believer is not belittled when being oppressed.

At the end of the reception, His eminence asked the Almighty Allah to avenge them from their oppressors, and to compensate them with the best awards in this world and the hereafter.

Day Questions

I read a ruling on his Eminence’s website that it is not good to wipe your hands over your face after Dua, as it is disliked by our Imams (peace be upon them). Is it also disliked to wipe the hands over the face after finishing the prayer?

What has been mentioned on the website is the dislike of wiping the face specifically after Qunoot, not after other various kinds of supplications (du’as). It is recommended to wipe the face after every Du’a, except for the Qunoot as it is disliked. As for wiping the face after the prayer, we are not aware of a narration that encourages or discourages such an act.

I have a question regarding donation of money to mourning Imam Hussein (peace be upon him). Can we spend this money in other good deeds like constructing a Hussaniya or a mosque?

Donations must be spent in the way the donor wants. However, if the donation is more than what the beneficiary requires and if postponing their spending leads to wasting the donation, it is permissible to spend them in other ceremonies of Imam Hussein (peace be upon him).

Does an adulterous woman observe the iddah of divorce, keeping in mind that the reason for her divorce was committing the sin of adultery with another man?

If the marriage was consummated, then she should observe the iddah when her husband divorces her even in the mentioned scenario.
