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

Many shia brethren (on Islamic forums) have started to judge between narrations whether they are authentic or non authentic in shia books by naming them as Sahih, Hasan, Daef, Mursal. For e.g. if a narrator of a well known narrations is Majhul unknown, they use this as a proof to say that the narration is inauthentic. Can you please clarify if this is how our Esteemed Scholars and Jurists authenticate a narration?

No one has the right to consider a narration as non authentic or reject it without proper evidence. There are differences in the ways of authentication between experts in this field themselves. Non experts does not have the right to pass a judgment in this issue, otherwise the person who do so will be questioned before almighty Allah in the Day of Judgment. If the narration was non authentic or does not have the conditions of being accepted, we don’t have the right to reject it or consider it as false. However, we should return the verdict in this issue to the Imams of the Ahlulbait since almighty Allah knows the truth. There are many narrations that emphasize this meaning. Imam Mohamed Albaqir said: “The most liked amongst my companions are those who know their religious Jurisprudence more and those who fear god more and the most that I dislike is the one that when they hear a narration that they were told that it is related to us or narrated from us but their hearts do not tolerate it so then they reject it. They do not know that the narration might have been from us so they become out of our religion”.
