Question: In the Name of Allah, the Abundantly Merciful, the Intensely Merciful,
Peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah and His blessings.
O my master and my leader, I am writing to you while a fire is burning in my heart as a result of a trial/affliction that has stricken me. And praise to Allah for His trials/afflictions, I have not seen except that which is beautiful.
O my master and my leader, I am complaining to you regarding what has happened to me, perhaps my complaint and you knowing of the matter will make it easier for me. On the date the 21st of this last March was when we made my marriage contract, and after this by a week was my divorce. And the reason is that I am holding firmly to your call, and even though I did not take the path of insulting and slandering and [even though] my evidences/proofs were as you have presented, yet he felt powerless in front of the evidences/proofs, so he preferred divorcing me to staying with me. I feel deep pain in my heart for he has smashed my dignity. And now here he is with his mother roaming among the people informing them of lies that I have cursed/accused Sistani, and they accused my sister of being crazy, and we have heard that a sect intends/is planning an attack on our home; because we are spreading the Da’wa (the Call).
O my master and my leader, I am lost and honestly do not know what I truly need. However, I am pleading that you respond to me, I need something to alleviate my sadness. Guide me my master, supplicate for me that Allah gives me back my right. Please do not send me disappointed my master.
Peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah and His blessings

Answer: In the Name of Allah, the Abundantly Merciful, the Intensely Merciful,
Praise to Allah, Lord of the worlds, and may Allah send His prayers and peace upon Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad, the Imams and the Mahdis.
May Allah grant you success to all that which is good. What could harm you if you hold firmly to the truth, even if all of the inhabitants of the earth waged war against you? Do you not say that you are Shia?! Then is there in Fatimah (upon her peace) and what happened to her an example for you? And is there in Zainab (upon her peace) and what happened to her an example for you?? And by Allah if you are patient and bite down tightly on your religion you will see all that is good in the world and the hereafter, while your enemies will not see except the evil in the world and the hereafter and Allah shall shame them and they will have lost the world and the hereafter. Indeed their appointed time is in the morning, is not the morning close enough??
Peace be upon you and the mercy of Allah and His Blessings,
