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

At what gestational age should the deceased baby be buried?

It is obligatory to bury the miscarried fetus at all stages. However, if its body and limbs are complete in its basic formation, it is obligatory to give it Ghusl, and apply the camphor on its body and place it into a Kafan (burial shroud) before burying it. The said applies based on an obligatory precaution if the age of the embryo is less than four months.

Is the ghusl by way of submergence (irtimasi) correct if one intends to perform it, and cover his entire body gradually?

His ghusl is not correct. It is correct to intend to perform it after he dips his body entirely under water.

If I am a guest, can I free my host from the liability of paying my family’s Zakat al-Fitra?

It is permissible to free the host from your Zakat al-Fitra by paying it yourself.

Does Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him) have servants? How can I appoint myself to be his servant?

We advise you to stay away from this kind of thoughts and focus on performing what is obligated and recommended in the Sharia. Once you do that, you will be under the care of the Twelfth Imam (peace be upon him), even if you don’t directly feel his blessings.
