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

If someone in his youth committed the sin of adultery and then repented and has thereafter not committed such sins, should he still expect punishment on the Day of Judgment?

Certain verses from the Quran and religious texts indicate that when a person sins and afterwards repents and regrets what he has done and decides to stop committing such a sin, then almighty Allah will not punish him.

Many people around the world believe in reincarnation. What is the view of Islam on reincarnation?

There is no doubt that reincarnation is an invalid concept. The entity of the human being does not change after death. Almighty Allah resurrects him after his death in his original form and identity and he will be judged for his actions. Allah almighty said: "And whoso doeth good an atom's weight will see it then, And whoso doeth ill an atom's weight will see it then." (Quran 99:7-8)

During wudhu, I always become doubtful as to whether I am doing the washing properly e.g. whether or not I am wiping my arms in a manner where it is reaching everywhere, which leads me to be very meticulous in my wudhu. May I ignore this doubt?

If the doubt is conventionally normal, and not a type of waswasah, one should pay attention to it, and therefore wash until he is certain that during the washings the water has reached all parts of the face or arm. If the doubt is a type of waswasah, then one should ignore it.

If during Ramadan I go on a trip to a particular place, and I make the intention that I will stay there for 10 days and will continue the fasting; if after 7 days I change my mind and return home, can I do so and are my fasts valid?

If one intended to stay for ten days at the time of the travel, then he changed his mind afterwards and decided to go home before the completion of the ten days, then his fast is correct.
