Al-Sayyid al-Hakeem Passes Away

Al-Sayyid al-Hakeem Passes Away

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

Indeed, we belong to Allah, and to Him do we indeed return.

His Eminence, Grand Ayatullah al-Sayyid Muhammad Sa’eed al-Tabataba’i al-Hakeem, has passed away to and returned to his Lord, the Most High. We pay our condolences to the nation of Islam, especially to the followers of the Ahlulbait (Peace be upon them) and the Islamic seminaries (Hawzas).

 We pray to Allah Almighty to bestow upon him His extensive and abundant mercy and blessings, and to raise him with the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and the Ahlulbait (peace be upon him).

There is no power or strength, except that of Allah, the Most High, the Most Mighty.


The Office of His Eminence al-Sayyid al-Hakeem, 25 Muharram 1443 (3 September, 2021)

Day Questions

Is it permissible for me to accept payment for a dua that I did for someone?

Yes, it is permissible, but it is better if the payment is given and taken as a gift.

Is it recommended to trim the moustache or to completely shave it off?

Both acts are mentioned in the narrations from the Prophet and the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them), so doing either is good.

What is Islam’s attitude towards non-Muslims? Does Islam and the Quran say that people who do not convert to Islam should be killed?

Such an accusation is an attempt of some to deface the true image of Islam, simply due to the actions of some Salafis and those who use the path of violence and hatred. The relations between Muslims and the followers of other religions in Muslim countries throughout history were based on amicability and coexistence.
