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

A father died, leaving behind his two daughters and a son as inheritors. One daughter told her brother that she will not want her share. After several years, the daughter demands her share from her brother. Does she have the right to it now?

If she gave her share to her brother and he received it, then she cannot claim the given share back for herself. If she did not give it to him but only promised him that she will give him her share, then she is allowed to change her mind; the same ruling applies if she gave her share to him but he did not receive it.

When one has a doubt during the prayer, can he break the prayer and start again?

It is permissible to stop the prayer and start again when doubts occur. However, the prayer can be corrected in some cases of doubts, without the need to start again.

If dried semen is found after having done ghusl of janabah, can it be regarded as tahir, as it has undergone a change, Istihala?

The drying of semen is not considered a change into another substance (Istihala), and it will be regarded as najis.

My question is regarding the status of Ayesha bint Abi Bakr. I recently had a heated argument whereby this person who is also a Shia claimed that Shias must address Ayesha bint Abi Bakr as Umm Al Mumineen as it was addressed by Allah in the Quran. Should Shias call her Umm Al Mumineen?

Holy Quran called the wives of the Prophet (peace be upon him and holy progeny) as the mothers of believers. There is no doubt that this name applies to them, but there is no obligation to mention it every time the name of a wife is mentioned and this does not mean that they are excluded from committing sins. Everyone Allah Almighty creates is subject to the general divine rule that everyone bears the responsibilities of their actions, as Almighty Allah said: "And whoso doeth good an atoms weight will see it then, And whoso doeth ill an atoms weight will see it then." (99:7-8).
