The Sermon of Hajj

Peace and prayers upon Muhammad and his kinship of Imams and Mahdis. The Almighty said,
56. ﴾Thus We empowered Joseph in the earth, he takes from it whatever he pleases. We reach with Our mercy whom We will and We lose not the reward of the good, and the reward of the Hereafter is better for those who believe and those who are pious.﴿ —Surat Yusuf (Joseph) 12.

Islam, Violence and Women’s rights

Question: There are those who say that violence is not a modern issue in Islam, rather it has been used since the time of the prophet℗, and they say that Islam spread by the sword, so how do you interpret these Quranic verses which promote killing, extermination and alienation: Quran chapter “The Family of Imran” 3:85, 91, 83; “Repentance” 9:29; “The Women” 4:91; “Muhammad” 47:4? And how do you interpret the verses concerning inheritance and testimony, which violate the civil rights of women?

What is the meaning of Allahu Akbar during the prayer?

Question 34: What is the meaning of Takbeerat [1] Al-Ihram during the prayer, and what is the significance of the Takbeerat of Ali bin Abi Talib?

Answer: The Takbeerat* for ihram in prayer are actually seven and not one, although ihram with one is permissible, if what is intended by that is the seven Takbeerat which are referring to the seven skies

What is the reason for the shroud for the dead?

Question 31: What is the reason for the shroud for the dead, and what is its benefit?

Answer: Indeed the body of the dead is respected, considering the connection of his spirit to it before his death. Therefore his loin and his body must be covered in front of the people and at the time of burial, just as he cared for covering his loin and body in this worldly life in the past. Moreover,

Intercession in the Quran

Question 26: What is the meaning of the verse ⸨And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will justice be taken from it, nor will they be supported.⸩ [Surat al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:48]?

And also the Almighty’s saying ⸨ And fear a Day when no soul will suffice for another soul at all, and no justice will be accepted from it, nor will any intercession benefit it, nor will they be supported⸩ [Surat al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:123]? Do these verses negate intercession?

This world is a prison for the believer

Question 25: What is the meaning of the narration from the Messenger of Allah pbuhap and from the Imams pbut, “This world is a prison for the believer” [1]?

Answer: It has also been narrated from them pbut, “Prayer is an ascension for the believer.” [Kanz al-‘Ummal, vol. 7, p. 279.] So this believer is the same as that believer [from the above narration], and the believer here is not one who just believes in Islam and the allegiance (Wilaya).

What are the names which Allah taught Adam?

Question 12: What are the names which Allah swt taught Adam pbuh?

Answer: He taught him the names of Allah, meaning He introduced him to a part of their truth which the angels had no capacity to know. And He introduced him to the truth of Allah’s names amongst the creation. Muhammad and his progeny pbut, and the prophets and messengers pbut are the names of Allah in the creation, meaning they are the mani- festation and appearance of Allah’s names swt.

The best of works is Wilayah

It has been narrated from Ahlul Bayt (a.s): (Verily, the best of works are Wilayah ([accepting the authority of and following Ahlul Bayt a.s.]) and Innocence ([declaring oneself innocent from the enemies of Ahlul Bayt a.s]). Meaning, taking the Supporters/Devotees of Allah as an authority over him, and they are the Prophets and Vicegerents, and being enemies with the enemies of Allah, and they are the enemies of the Prophets and Vicegerents and the enemies of their Shia (followers). So which work is put forth before the other, Wilayah or declaring oneself innocent [from the enemies of Allah]?

The Black Stone and Its Relationship with Imam Mahdi

And he said to me: come behind me and I shall make you circle [the Kaa’ba]. So my wife and I went behind him and he made us circle the Kaa’ba (Tawaf Al-Hajj/The Circling of Pilgrimage), and we did not feel any crowd or narrowness [of space], and he was reading Dua’s and Dhikr (invocations), and from them was Dua’ Kumayl, and I was sending a lot of peace and blessings upon Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad ([making a lot of Salawat]), and I was saying within myself: perhaps this is The Mahdi Muhammad son of Al-Hassan (pbuh), but I would say: who am I that the Mahdi may come [especially] for me and make me circle [the Kaa’ba]?!

Blessed are those who hung on to the Will of Muhammad the Messenger of Allah

We leave it for the honorable ones from among the Muslims to be fair to themselves and judge with justice between Fatima the daughter of Muhammad, the Lady of the women of the worlds, and those who attacked her house and caused her harm and martyrdom.
And to search for the reasons that caused this attack, the pivotal point of which was the Will of Muhammad the Messenger of Allah PBUHAP, which he described as a book preventing misguidance.
For the Messenger of Allah PBUHAP wanted to write it for the public on Thursday, during the illness leading to his death, but here, Umar and his group objected and accused the Messenger of Allah PBUHAP of being delirious, and thus the famous incident of the Calamity of Thursday. And the Messenger of Allah PBUHAP refused to write the book of prevention for those who rejected it on Thursday, and he wrote it afterward on the night of his death for those who accepted it.

A day for supporting homosexuality

Being circulated on social networks is the viewpoint that the day 5/17 (today) is a day for supporting homosexuality or, as they call it, anti-homophobia day. It is well-known that many countries have legislated same-sex marriage laws or are on their way to doing so. We have previously disapproved of this and see it as something indecent and destructive – not only from a religious point of view but also from a social and biological one. I have personally discussed the issue scientifically, and I have clearly shown the invalidity of what they propose to justify sexual deviation

Homosexuality

Ever since I was a child, I have felt like a female. I am actually certain of it and feel like I am in a body that is not my own. I want to know if al-Khomeini’s ruling is jurisprudentially correct concerning sex-change operations. Is it permissible for me to have the operation and is it what is best for me? Because I really can’t fight this feeling that I am a female. I am one of the believers in the blessed call and I requested that Abdullah Hashem send this letter to you because I am too embarrassed to ask you myself. If the operation is not permissible, is there something I can do to fix myself and to make me a heterosexual male who is not attracted to men?

In the will of Muhammad the Messenger of Allah saw. to Ali a.s

In the will of Muhammad the Messenger of Allah PBUHAP to Ali PBUH,
It is narrated from Muhammad bin Yahya, from Ahmad bin Muhammad bin Issa, from Ali bin al-Numan, from Moawiya bin Ammar that Imam Abu Abdullah PBUH said, {“In the will of the Prophet PBUHAP to Ali PBUH, he PBUHAP said, ‘I advise you to a acquire these attributes, so memorize them.

The Martyrdom of Lady Fatimah

Unfortunately, after the martyrdom of the Messenger of God, Abu Bakr, and Umar broke into Fatima’s house to force Ali bin Abi Talib to pledge allegiance to Abu Bakr. This incident resulted in the injury of Fatima pbuh, the miscarriage of her son al-Muhsin, and her death shortly afterwards. This was just as the Messenger of God, Muhammad pbuhap, promised her: that she would be the first one to follow him. Thus, she was the first martyr mentioned in the Sacred Will of the Prophet.

In Memory of Zainab

In memory of Zainab, daughter of Fatima daughter of Muhammad pbuhap entering Syria as a prisoner, we remember that Yazid bin Muawiya Ibn Abu Sufyan, may God curse them all, slayed al-Hussain and imprisoned the daughters of Muhammad (pbuhap) in the name of Islam and in the name of Muhammad. And Satan’s purpose for this is to bring back the worship of Hubal that Muawiya and Abu Sufyan, may God curse them, fought for before, but to bring it back in another form.

Hijab in Islam

I have a question to ask. In Iran, women are forced to wear hijab and if they do not do so, the government will punish them.

And this is even the case for women of other religions. For example, atheist or Christian women are forced to wear hijab. My Mawla, is the issue of enforcement of hijab by the government correct? Is there a mandatory hijab in the state of justice, and whoever doesn’t wear a hijab, even if they are not Muslim, is punished? God bless you on earth. please pray for me.

Rights of Women in Islam

It is written in the book of jurisprudence in the chapter of marriage that it is not permissible to have intercourse with a woman before she is 9 years old. I understood from this that it is permissible to have intercourse with a girl starting 9 years old.
Through my work, I encountered many cases where girls would be subjected to extreme bodily harm because her body is not yet developed to handle sexual intercourse with the husband. Also in our societies and in our era today a girl in this age is still considered a child and does not yet have the mental and physical maturity to bear the responsibilities and duties of a contract with such importance. So why did God make permissible the marriage of a girl at such a young age? And is it true that a girl can be married off as soon as she is born?

Why did Muhammad have more wives

My Imam, in our discussions with the Christians about the proofs of the call, we often see them moving to matters concerning the character of the Messenger Muhammad pbuhap. One of their questions is: Why did the Messenger pbuhap have nine wives? Could you please clarify the reason?

Tatbeer – Ban on bloodletting on Ashura

So who wants to do Tatbeer, he can do it in his house away from the eyes of people; thus, this is better as his work will be devoted for Allah if he really asked for the face of Allah by his work.
Whereas who does it in an arranged and grouped form and in front of simple people especially the dissenting people and non-muslims , then they are causing people to alienate from Islam and thus their work is HARAM

Ban on Cursing

As for cursing and insulting, this is not from our manners. And I ask Allah that He bestows upon me and make me among those who forgive the ones who have offended them. And I seek refuge in Allah from being tough and vicious. And I have forbidden the believing brothers and the believing sisters from [having] bad manners which would offend them firstly and would offend the Islam which Muhammad has come with secondly, considering [the fact] that they are affiliated with him (peace be upon him and his Family). And I have asked them to possess the morals/manners of the Qur’an

We do not abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten except that We bring forth [one] better than it or similar to it

What is the meaning of these verses:
{We do not abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten except that We bring forth [one] better than it or similar to it. Do you not know that Allah is over all things competent?} [Surat Al-Baqarah 2:106]. And He The Exalted said: {And when We substitute a verse in place of a verse – and Allah is most knowing of what He sends down – they say, “You, [O Muhammad], are but an inventor [of lies].” But most of them do not know} [Quran Surat Al-Nahl 16:101]

6 days of creation

“Say: Is it that ye disbelieve in Him Who created the earth in two Days? And do ye join equals with Him? He is the Lord of (all) the Worlds. He made therein Rawasy (stabilizers) from above and bestowed blessings in it, and gave due measure therein the sustenance, in four Days, for those who question.
And then He established it until to the sky, and it had been (as) smoke: He said to it and to the earth: “Come ye together, willingly or unwillingly.” They said: “We do come (together), in willing obedience.”
“And so He completed them as seven skies in two Days, and He inspired to each sky its command. And We adorned the sky of the world with lamps, and protected it. Such is the Decree of (Him) the Exalted in Might, Full of Knowledge.” [Qu’ran Surat Fussilat (41):9-12]

Why was the period of creating the earth and its sustenance four days, while the creation of the skies was two days since the skies are greater?
