His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammed Saeed Al-Hakeem, on 16 February 2020, received a group of youth from Baghdad, children of martyrs who died fighting in the Popular Mobilization Forces (Al-Hashd Al-Sha’bi) against Daesh.

His Eminence praised the clear and manifest courage of their fathers and their sacrifice for their religion, their homeland and the holy shrines. By the grace of Allah and through their sacrifice and spilling of their noble blood, they were victorious over the enemies.

His Eminence called them to follow the Holy Prophet and the Imams of the Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them all), and that their ethics and morals should by distinctly higher than others, and that they should adhere to the teachings of the Sharia.

His Eminence concluded by praying to the Most High and Mighty to provide support for them and to support those who serve and help the orphans, that their Ziyarah is accepted, and that they see the blessings of it in this life and the Hereafter. He finally requested that his greetings and best wishes be conveyed to their families.

Day Questions

It is claimed by some that Imam Ali (peace be upon him) offered prayers in congregation led by Abu Bakr. Is this true?

We are not aware of a historical source that clearly indicates this, but offering the prayer behind Abu Bakr does not give legitimacy to his caliphate. Imam (peace be upon him) no doubt was forced to give the allegiance to Abu Bakr. He did so because those people were ready to kill whoever does not pay allegiance. They killed Sa’d bin Abadah because he did not agree with them although he left Medina and migrated to Syria and did not resist them. This clearly shows that they were willing to do anything in order to be in power. From this, one can conclude that Imam Ali (peace be upon him) was coerced into certain positions. It is not far to consider that such prayers – if it really happened – made them confident that the Imam (peace be upon him) was not acting against them.
