  1. Last Speech by Martyr Abdul Ali Mazari, Founder of Justice-seeking Movement in Afghanistan Translated by: Jawid Akbari _____________________________ I seek refuge to Allah, from the accursed Satan. In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate the Merciful Surely Allah does not change the condition of a people until they change their own condition. [Quran, 13: 11] In this holy month of Ramadhan, no sooner you were invited to a gathering than you came together in an instant. That is something that gives me hope and assurance that you
  2. Dear brothers and sisters, It is recommended for men to shave their pubic hair every forty days and for women to shave every twenty days. There is also a hadith in this regard from the Messenger of Allah (S) which I will mention as under: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللّهِ (ص):مَنْ كانَ يُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَ الْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ فَلَا يَتْرُكْ عَانَتَهُ فَوْقَ أَرْبَعِينَ يَوْماً وَ لَا يَحِلُّ لِامْرَأَةٍ تُؤْمِنُ بِاللَّهِ وَ الْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ أَنْ تَدَعَ ذَلِكَ مِنْهَا فَوْقَ عِشْرِينَ يَوْما (الفقیه، ج 1، ص 119) The Prophet of Allah (s) says: “One who believes in Allah and the Last Day
  3. Salamun alaikum, Dear brothers and sisters, Hijab is an important Islamic commandment that should be upheld and practiced by Muslim women. They should observe hijab in the best possible manner. However, in respect to obligatory Hijab, it is sufficient if a woman covers her body, other than her face, and hands up to the wrists, with anything that she can, and a particular dress is not a condition. However, there is harm (objection) in wearing tight, close-fitting and ornamental dresses. She must also cover her feet when she may be seen by strangers (unrelated members of the opposite g
  4. In such matters, it is good for you to consult your elders and relatives. If after consultation, you reached a decision, then there would be no need to see istikhara. And if you did not reach any decision, then you can make istikhara. Repeating an istikhara is valid only when the subject of istikhara is changed in such a way that he who repeats the istikhara can say, for example, I see Istikhara of a sadaqa and the marriage (in the previous time it was only marriage but this time it is with sadaqa). Generally speaking, Istikhara is done where you are confused. One must first of all consul
  5. Dear brother in Islam, Shaving beard is not allowed, as an obligatory precaution. The size of beard should be as much as the custom ('urf) should say that "you have beard". French cut beard is not sufficient as an obligatory precaution. According to Grand Ayatollah Sistani, in his book titled "A Code of Practice for Muslims in the West", if a person's beard becomes a cause of ridicule and humiliation that is not normally tolerable by a Muslim, it is permissible to shave beard. Likely, it is permissible to shave it for medical reasons, if one considers it to be necessary. Trimming a
  6. As far as I know, all or majority of the current Maraji' (religious authorities) say that drawing is permissible, including drawing the full body or face of a living creature. The only thing that would make it forbidden is if it used for wrongful purposes such as pornography or if the drawings are worshipped somehow. What is forbidden in connection with animals is making statues and then placing them in your house. As well, it is makrooh (undesirable) to pray in a room where is the picture of an animal hanging on the wall. In case, the picture is covered with something, it is not makrooh.
  7. Dear brothers in Islam, In issue number 2633, Grand Ayatollah Sistani says that insects are not permissible to eat. They are not in the categry of halal things or animals to be eaten. Here is what His Eminence says: "All birds, like eagle, vultures and wild falcons having a claw and talon, are haraam to eat. And all such birds whose gliding is more than flapping the wings, and have talons, are also haraam to eat. Those whose flapping of the wings while flying, is more than gliding, are halal to eat. Thus, one can identify halal birds from haraam ones by observing how they fly. And i
  8. Salamun alaikum, Indeed, there is great reward in the prayer performed in the Masjidul Haram. In Islam, great emphasis is laid on performing prayers in a mosque. Masjidul Haram is superior to all the mosques, and after it, the order of priority is as follows: Masjidun Nabi (in Madina) Masjid Kufa (in Kufa) Masjid Baytul Maqdas (in the occupied Palestine) Then comes the number of Jami' Masjid (central mosque) of every city, followed by the mosques situated in one's locality, and then that of the bazaar. For women, it is better to pray at such places where
  9. Salamun alaikum, There is no problem in developing a game per se. In other words, it is permissible to develop a game in and of itself but if a game is meant to be used for gambling or betting, it is not permissible to develop it. That is because gambling is forbidden and if a game involves betting, it is not allowed to play it, nor is it permissible to develop it for such purposes. Generally speaking, it is haram to promote evil and anything which is sinful. Gambling means sacrificing wealth, asset and honour, for acquiring the riches of others by means of deception and craftiness
  10. Dear brother in Islam, It is neither recommended nor necessary to put a weapon or sword in your grave. It seems what you have claimed in your message about your friend is unfounded and has no basis in our religious teachings. There is no such tradition in our sources to indicate that such a practice is in order. What is recommended to place inside a grave with a dead body is a piece of turbah of Imam Hussein (AS) as well as two pieces of fresh and green wood that can be put near the head of the deceased individual. Wassalam For information about some rules of graves clic
  11. It is necessary to avoid reciting the third Shahadat (testimony) because, no where in any Shia sources, can you find any references or proof about reciting the third testimony in prayers. Please, see authentic narrations in Shia's Hadith books such as: Wasaael Al-Shia Vol. 6. page 392 Abwaab Al-Tashahhud, chapter 3 Hadith 1. Wasaael Al-Shia Vol. 6. page 397 Abwaab Al-Tashahhud, chapter 4 Hadith 4. Wasaael Al-Shia Vol. 6. page 398 Abwaab Al-Tashahhud, chapter 4 Hadith 5. Also, see Resalahs (Tauzihul Masaael) of all prominent Marjas (jurisprudents) and you will come to
  12. Salamun alaikum Shia and all righteous Muslims believe in Bedâ and accept it. But BADÂ in relation to Allah is not in the sense of changing decision because if we say so, it would mean ascribing ignorance (Jahl) to Him. The true meaning of BADÂ is EXPOSING after HIDING. That is to say that Allah knew from the very beginning that Mosa bin Ja'afar would be the Imam after his father and Allah knew that He would introduce him as the next Imam. Allah knew that initially the Imamat (leadership) of Ismael would be raised and He would expose the truth as per expedience ( Yamhullaha ma yashaa w
  13. Among the adaab (etiquettes) of Dua is presence of mind. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said: “Allah Ta’ala does not accept the dua of a servant which comes from an unmindful heart.” Among the requisites for acceptance of Dua is halaal food. Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said to Sa’d (radhiyallahu anhu): “Make wholesome your earning, Allah will accept your Dua.” It has also been narrated: “Dua is the key of need, and its (the key’s) teeth are lawful morsels of food.” Hadhrat Nabi Musaa (alayhis salaam) passed by a man who was making dua with much humility. Hadhrat M
  14. A Muslim man is the equal (kufw) of a Muslim woman. Both of them believe in the same religion and religious principles and values. They have a lot in common and they do not disagree with each other when it comes to how they should educate and nurture their child. Thus, they agree that the child they are going to educate will have to be brought up as believing in the same religion and values they believe in. A man who marries a faithful Muslim woman is less likely to encounter any domestic problems. There will be no or less domestic violence as compared to a family with one of the two part
  15. It is permissible to eat the food that is not known to be najis, even though the cook is a Hindu or Buddhist. All kinds of food with the exception of meat, fat, and their extracts are permissible for a Muslim as long as he does not know that they are najis. It is permissible to eat the food and it is not necessary for the Muslim to question the person who prepared the food about his beliefs or disbelief, or whether or not he had touched the food, even if that inquiry is very convenient and natural for one who wants to ask. Hindus are ritually impure and if you are sure that they have to
  16. Salamun alaikum, Since the followers of the past revealed religions (that is, the Jews and Christians) are ritually pure, many of the problems concerning the status and permissibility of the food are resolved when we live in their midst. It becomes permissible for us as Muslims to eat from their food no matter whether they touched it with their wet hands or not as long as we do not know or are not sure that it consists of what is forbidden to us, like intoxicating drinks. A Muslim is allowed to eat the food prepared by a non-Muslim who is not from Ahlul Kitãb [for example, a Hindu or
  17. Dear brother, you need to take everything from reliable sources. Do not listen to what people claim in matters of religious obligations because there are superstitions in the society that people believe in. There are baseless and unfounded beliefs that have no rational and Quranic proofs. If you want to make sure that something is either halal or haram, you should consult a learned and qualified Mujtahid. In matters of legal rulings, you should always consult experts in legal matters. When it comes to selling water, there is no objection in it. It is permissible to sell it especially if
  18. If a woman says that she has reached menopause, her word may not be accepted, but if she says that she does not have a husband, her word is acceptable, except when she is known to be unreliable, in which case, investigation will be necessary. A woman, who has attained an age where she has no hope of getting pregnant, does not need to observe Iddah. She can marry again without observing Iddah. In other words, It means that, even if the husband has had sexual intercourse with her, she can remarry immediately after being divorced. In case, however, her husband has died, she must observe
  19. Your question is not clear, I suppose. Did you mean the qaza of prayers or something else. If you meant that Shia Muslims perform the qadha of their prayers, there is no question about it. It is a duty that one should do to atone for his mistake or what he has lost intentionally or unintentionally. You should make up for the number of prayers and fasts which you are sure to have been missed/left out. For example, you are certain that you have missed the prayers of 365 days; in this case, you should give the qaza of those days only. The position is the same with Ramadhan fast. As far
  20. If a person earns by means of farming, trade, industry or by means of working in different institutes and if his earning exceeds the annual expenses for maintaining himself and his family, he should pay Khums (i.e. 1/5) from the surplus, in accordance with the rules. It does not make any difference whether it is in the form of cash or an asset that has been invested in the business. Khums should be divided into two parts. One part is Sahme (share) Imam (a.s.), and the other is Sahme Sadat that should be given to Sayyids who are poor or orphans in need, or Sayyids who have become stranded
  21. It is makrooh to perform prayers in a room where there is a picture of an animate beings. Therefore, you should not hang it in the room where you perform prayers. Makrooh means that it is permissible but there is less sawab in the prayers that you perform.
  22. It is makrooh to perform prayers in a room where there is a picture of an animate beings. Therefore, you should not hang it in the room where you perform prayers. There are a number of places where it is Makrooh to offer prayers. Some of them are the following: Public bath Saline land Facing a human person Facing an open door On a road or street, provided that offering of prayers at these places does not cause inconvenience to others. If it is a source of inconvenience, and discomfort to them, it is haraam to obstruct their way. Facing fire or a l
  23. As far as I have researched, no Mujtahid allows such sea foods to be consumed. For example, grand Ayatollah Sistani says in his book "A Code of Practice for Muslims in the West": It is not permissible to eat from marine animals anything except fish that has scale; shrimp is considered from that category [of permissible sea animals]. But other than fish, like lobster, crabs and similarly the fish that does not have scale is forbidden." Therefore, first of all, one should make sure that something is from the category of fish. Secondly, if it has scales, it is permissible to eat it and if i
  24. Dear readers, The marriage of a Muslim man and a Muslim woman is valid even though their religion might be different. However, it is better to note that every side should make sure that the other party – who is from a different sect – will not bar him from doing what he is required to do according to his religion and that the other party will not force him to do what is against his religion. In addition, it should be taken into account that the marital life of such a couple often encounters difficulties and that religious differences between them lead to problems which should be taken int
  25. Based on the verdict of His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah Sistani, a man who has temporary or permanent Muslim wife cannot marry a Kitabi (Christian or Jewish) woman without her permission. Even if his Muslim wife permits him to marry a woman from the People of the Book, it is not permissible for the man to marry, as an obligatory precaution. As for marriage with kafir women who are not from the people of the Book, it is absolutely forbidden. In case a person is not married, he can contract temporary marriage to a Christian or Jewish girl, not a female atheist or a Buddhist. However, if the
