  1. Read about Iraqi President's visit and more in Al-Huda for Shawwal 1429 AH. Click here to view it in your browser. Thank you. Imam Al-Khoei Foundation, New York.
  2. "Liason Office" and "Representative" (Wakil) are two different things. I know Sayyed Baqir personally. He is running an office but is not a sole representative. Instead, his brother, Sayyed Murtadha Kashmiri who lives in London is the representative. Moreover, I am not Sheikh Sahlani's representative but I am sure he will provide you with proof if you ask him, that is why I pasted the web sites for your convenience. Wassalam,
  3. Al-Khoei's website states Sheikh Sahlani as a representative here: http://www.al-khoei.org/kb/ask.aspx I do not see any such statements about Sayyid Baqir Kashmiri on http://www.imam-us.org/ or about Sayyid Mohammad Rizvi on http://www.jaffari.org/, which are their official web sites. Besides this is a universal fact, which any knowledgable person living in the US is aware of. If you are in doubt, please contact the offices listed above and clarify.
  4. Please set your facts straight. The only person in North America (which includes USA and Canada) who has the "absolute wakalah" of Ayatollah Sistani, is Sheikh Sahlani of Al-Khoei Foundation, while both Sayyed Baqir Kashmiri and Sayyed Mohammad Rizvi are NOT. These facts can be confirmed by contacting these three individuals who are all easily accessible. People often confuse HI Baqir Kashmiri with HI Sayyed Murtadha Kashmiri, who is the actual wakil (representative) and lives in UK. Next time check the facts and do not believe hearsay. You can contact: Sheikh Sahlani here: http://www.al-khoei.org/ Sayyed Mohammad Rizvi here: http://www.jaffari.org/ Sayyed Baqir Kashmiri here: http://www.imam-us.org/ Thank you.
  5. Here is an interesting attachment for those who are doubting the statements of Ayatollah Najafi. Also those who claim his father, Imam Al-Khoei (qas) , did not hold him in high regard, should see this: ============================= ÈÓã Çááå ÇáÑÍãä ÇáÑÍíã æáÏäÇ ÇáÚÒíÒ ÇáÚáÇãÉ ÇáÓíÏ ÚÈÏ ÇáãÌíÏ Óáøãå Çááå ÊÚÇáì ÇáÍãÏ ááå æÓáÇã Úáì ÚÈÇÏå ÇáÐíä ÇÕØÝì¡ ÓíøãÇ ãÕØÝì åÐå ÇáÐßÑì ÇáãÈÇÑßÉ ÇáÐí ÕÏóÚ ÈÃãÑ æáÇíÉ Çááå ÝíåÇ¡ æÚáì ÕÇÍÈåÇ ÇáÒßí ÇáÐí ÝõÑÖÊ ØÇÚÊå Úáì ÇáÚÈÇÏ¡ æÚáì ÃÈäÇÆå ÇáØÇåÑíä ÇáÐíä ÊãÊ Èåã ßáãÉ Çááå æÚÙãÊ Èå äÚãÊå ÇáÓáÇã Úáíßã æÑÍãÉ Çááå æÈÑßÇÊå æÈÚÏ : ÝÞÏ ÊáÞíäÇ ÈÈÇáÛ ÇáÓÑæÑ äÈà ÚÒãßã Úáì ÇÝÊÊÇÍ ÇáãÑßÒ ÇáÇÓáÇãí ÇáßÈíÑ ÇáÊÇÈÚ áãÄÓÓÊäÇ ÇáÎíÑíÉ Ýí ãÏíäÉ áäÏä¡ ÝÑÛÈäÇ Çä äÔÇØÑßã æÇÎæÊßã ÇáßÑÇã ÇáãÔÇÑßíä Ýí ÊäÝíÐ åÐÇ ÇáãÔÑæÚ ÇáãÈÇÑß¡ ÇáÛÈØÉ æÇáÝÑÍ ÈåÐå ÇáãäÇÓÈÉ¡ ÓíøãÇ æÇä ÎØæÊßã ÇáãíãæäÉ åÐå ÊÕÇÏÝ ÇáÐßÑì ÇáÚØÑÉ áíæã ÇáÛÏíÑ ÇáÇÛÑ¡ íæã ÇßãÇá ÇáÏíä æÇÊãÇã ÇáäÚãÉ æÇääí ÇÐ ÃÍãÏ Çááå ÊÈÇÑß æÊÚÇáì Úáì ãÇ ÃäÚã Èå Úáíø¡ ÝÍÞÞ áí ÈÚÖ ãÇ ßäÊ ÃÕÈæ Çáíå¡ ÍíË ÈÏÃÊ ãÄÓÓÊäÇ ÇáÎíÑíÉ ÊÄÊí ËãÇÑåÇ æÇÍÏÉ Êáæ ÇáÇÎÑì.

By NEIL MacFARQUHAR Published: September 25, 2007 Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, the prime minister of Iraq, attended a traditional Ramadan feast at a Queens mosque last night, telling a multinational crowd from Iraq, Iran, India and beyond that the enemy bringing down the minarets of Shiite mosques in Iraq was the same enemy who brought down the World Trade Center. Tyler Hicks/The New York Times A multinational crowd from Iraq, Iran, India and beyond prayed at the mosque last night before breaking their fasts. These are people who “have a sick interpretation of Islam,” he said, attributing most of the violence in Iraq to a few religious clerics and others who had turned away from the religion. “This is an open front against civilization, so it is the duty of all governments to fight in the face of this challenge.” Mr. Maliki, who signed the death warrant that sent Saddam Hussein to the gallows, also blamed Iraq’s current problems on the dead dictator, saying he had left “a heavy difficult inheritance that we still suffer from.” That legacy included sectarian tension and the lack of trust between factions, he continued, worse even than the destruction that he said Al-Qaeda was now visiting on the country. The prime minister said Iraq would take over responsibility for his country’s security as soon as the United States determined it was time to withdraw, a statement that has drawn criticism in the past for being unrealistic. He also said it was too early to determine what the long term military relationship between the two nations would be, saying it was premature to draw parallels with a place like South Korea, which senior American officials sometimes mention as a model. The crowd of several hundred people filling the mosque in the building that also houses the offices of Al-Khoei Foundation was mostly sympathetic, prone to dismiss the criticism from American senators and other officials that Mr. Maliki should be replaced. Much of that criticism centers on his failures to overcome sectarian differences in Iraq, the lack of an agreement on such key factors as dividing the country’s vast oil wealth, and his inclination to remain too sympathetic to his own Shiite faction. “He is trying to put all the Sunnis and Shiites together, but the Sunnis push him away,” said Mustapha al-Nasiri, 46, an Iraqi petroleum engineer now selling real estate in Boston. He argued that while not all Sunnis are bad, they formed the core of the Baath Party and of Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, a home-grown insurgent group that American intelligence agencies say is foreign led. Another Iraqi immigrant worried that all the criticism would only help Iraq’s enemies. “They make him weak,” said Hussein Al-Jabouri, a 41-year-old businessman from Dearborn Heights, Michigan. He said he also wanted to know what the prime minister’s plans were for developing mostly Shiite, southern Iraq, plans he said were long overdue. Mr. Maliki, however, was long about the difficult struggles still ahead but short on specifics. “The deeper it goes, the more complicated it gets, so Iraqi politicians stay on the surface,” said Sheik Husham Al-Husainy, a visiting cleric from Dearborn. “Besides, when it comes to Iraq, on a lot of questions only God knows.” Still, audience members like Sheik Husainy and Mr. Jabouri said they got what they came for — a little taste of Iraq. Indeed, the sponsor, Al-Khoei Foundation, one of the largest Shiite Muslim charitable and educational associations in the world, made the mosque feel a little like Iraq. The Ramadan iftar, or breakfast in Arabic, was held inside the mosque itself, known for its distinctive blue dome, near the expressway leading from Kennedy International Airport. Long plastic sheets covered the floor, with places set for as many as 100 people along one row. After extended prayers, which the prime minister joined midway, most of the crowd broke the fast with a few dates and water. Then, sitting cross-legged on the floor, they ate a meal that included lamb curry, chicken biriyani, creamed spinach, roasted eggplants, hummus and salad. The prime minister, surrounded by his top aides, sat at the end of one such row with Sheikh Fadhel al-Sahalani, the director of Al-Khoei Foundation in New York and the North American representative of Ayatollah Ali Sistani, the top cleric in Iraq. Sheik Sahalani introduced Mr. Maliki by asking everyone to say a prayer for all Iraqis and others who sacrificed themselves in fighting for the country. “We are still waiting for a change for the better,” he said. When it came to the question and answer period, some of the faithful asked when Iraq would be peaceful enough for them to visit, including making the pilgrimage to the holy city of Najaf. Shiite Islam broke away from the main Sunni branch in the fights over succession in the years after the Prophet Mohammed died in 680, with the Shiites backing Ali, the prophet’s son-in-law and cousin. A huge mosque has been built around the shrine in Najaf, where tradition holds that he was buried. “When will Najaf be safe enough to make the pilgrimage?” yelled out Azzam Mirza, a 60-year-old Indian-American. “You can come with us now!” responded the prime minister. “He said he wanted to visit, not to die there,” quipped Sheik Husham Al-Husainy, a visiting cleric from Dearborn.

  10. Unwelcome Pilgrims Leave your comments here: http://al-huda.al-khoei.org/news/44/ARTICL...2007-08-25.html By Zahir Janmohamed Available at: Al-Huda News For Shia pilgrims to Mecca and Medina, few can forget the that occurred in 1987. Each year prior to that, a group of Iranians, Saudis, and other nationals held a peaceful, Saudi government-approved demonstration to denounce internal hypocrisy in Islam (even though it was a not-so subtle jab at the Saudi monarchy). It was a tradition started by Imam Khomeini after the Iranian Revolution and one that continued with barely a scuffle for years. In 1987, however, an argument broke out between demonstrators and Saudi police in which the police opened fire, forcing the demonstrators to flee in a stampede-inducing frenzy. Over four hundred people were killed with another 649 injured, an event described in vivid detail in the book Iran's Persian Gulf Policy: From Khomeini to Khatami. While discrimination in Mecca and Medina continued afterwards against anyone the Saudi government deemed outside its definition of Islam, actual violence against worshippers rarely did. That uneasy but stable status quo was broken on August 5th when a group of Shia pilgrims from the US and the UK were physically harassed, verbally insulted, and then detained by Saudi authorities. In a letter now widely circulated on the Internet, one participant, Syed Jawad Qazwini, an Islamic scholar and community leader based in Florida, extensively documents the abuses he saw committed against himself and his group. [Editor: Click here to read Syed Jawad Qazwini's personal account of what happened.] According to his account, his umrah delegation was praying inside the Grand Mosque in Mecca and were within earshot of a Saudi appointed religious scholar lecturing on Islam.The speaker allegedly repeated familiar anti-Shia canards -- Shia Muslims worship the dead, are hypocrites, and gave Muslim lands away to the enemy (a reference to the support many Shia leaders gave to the overthrow of Saddam Hussain). A young man then approached the religious police and told them that they should not disrespect Shia Muslims. Qazwini, a 25-year-old Iraqi American, urged the young man to ignore the incident but tension ensued and the police became physical. "They began to hit us with chairs, bats, radio communication devices, their fists, kicks, and punches continually," recounted Qazwini. "They were hitting us with so many blows that I could not hold them back," added another pilgrim, Mustafa Field. The Saudi police responded with a barrage of insults, reportedly telling the worshippers that they were "all cowards and we will purify the holy mosque from the Shia," according to Qazwini's account. Qazwini then told the police that they were "guests of Allah" and that they were "in no position to go against Allah and the government of your king." The police officer then pushed Qazwini aside and arrested him, reportedly dragging him to a detention center within the mosque with several members of his group trailing behind. While the detention center was cleared of others, Qaswini claimed that a Saudi official boasted to other officers that he had caught an "Iraqi Shia causing problems". With the room now empty, a police officer then threw his boot at Qazwini, hitting his forehead. "I was in more pain and I could barely see," wrote Qazwini. "I had a severe headache. He then proceeded to beat me and he was laughing with amusement, telling the rest on the police in the room how good it felt to hit a Shia." Qazwini recalled crying for help while some members of his group tried to approach the detention center to help him. Chaos ensued as over 30 police officers were dispatched to quell the trouble. Members of Qazwini's umrah delegation were then beaten by Saudi police, some reportedly hit in their genitalia. "Take this message back to America," a Saudi officer allegedly told to the group. Seven Britons and one American was detained for 12 hours until their eventual release, according to the BBC. The story has yet to be corroborated by any eyewitnesses outside Qazwini's group, and groups like Amnesty International are still waiting for more information before any statement (or action) can be made. Images of some the victims are now circulating on the internet and many of the pilgrims said they plan legal action. Syed Hasan Qazwini, an Islamic scholar and the head of the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn, said the attack was not surprising and part of a very familiar pattern of abuse. Said Qazwini, "This event (is) another episode in a long standing culture of policies which discriminated against Shias living in Saudi Arabia or those on pilgrimage." In a statement released to reporters, Ghazi al-Usaimi, deputy police chief at Mecca's Grand Mosque, decried these allegations, saying "What the media said is baseless; no assaults took place in the shrine." Repeated calls for comment to the press office at the Saudi Embassy in Washington DC were unanswered. Interestingly, victims reported that Saudi officials further escalated their assault when they learned of the victims nationality. "They were calling us infidels. When we said we were British and American citizens and wanted to speak to our embassies the beating got even worse," Amir Taki, a civil-servant from London noted in a London press conference. One of those beaten was a 16-year-old British Shia Muslim who was assaulted even further when Saudi authorities learned that his mother was an Englishwoman. Qazwini told reporters, "I think they wanted to send a message to the West, and unfortunately we were the means they used to do so. We were targets for two reasons, because we held American passports and because we are Shias." Prior to this incident, there were indications that conditions were improving for Shia pilgrims. In October 2006, Saudi Arabia played host to a conference of prominent Muslim leaders calling for an end to sectarian strife between Muslims. But for many, the attack on the pilgrims recalls a painful history of abuse in Mecca and shatters hopes for a more inclusive and tolerant hajj and umrah experience. - END This article was first published in www.altmuslim.com Zahir Janmohamed is an associate editor of altmuslim.com and co-founder of the Qunoot Foundation.

  12. Bomb Explosion during a Shi'a Muslim Gathering Available at: http://al-huda.al-khoei.org/ PESHAWAR, Pakistan: A bomb went off near a Shi'a Muslim mosque in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar late Saturday, killing at least 10 people and wounding 35, police said. Most of the victims were police and municipal officials who were clearing the route for a procession of Shi'a Muslims who were preparing to leave the mosque in the crowded old city of Peshawar, said police officer Aziz Khan. The Al-Khoei Foundation was quick to condemn the attack. Syed Meesam Razvi, the Foundation's representative to United Nations called the bombings "heinous" and "provocative". Razvi further elaborated that these bombings are symbolic and are meant to provoke further violence, since they have taken place during the first week of the Islamic Year. For Muslims, especially the Shi'a, the beginning of the Islamic New Year portents tearful eyes and lamentations. In the beginning of the year - especially the first ten days - Muslims commemorate the martyrdom of Imam Hussain, the grandson of Prophet Mohammad, with spiritual fervor. During these gatherings, the speakers remind their congregations of Imam Hussain's stand for the ethos of truth, justice and tolerance and that he liberated the Muslims from the yokes of Yazidi philosophy which stood for deception, discrimination and intolerance. The Al-Khoei Foundation was established by Grand Ayatollah Al-Khoei in 1989 and is the largest Shi'a Muslim religious-charitable organization. The Foundation has more than 15 branches all across the world, where it is responsible for the maintenance of Schools, Colleges, Universities and Islamic Centers. The Foundation is the only Shi'a Muslim organization that enjoys a General Consultative Status with United Nations.
