  1. All I did was post a really benign question asking for advice about taqlīd. I had no interest in having a political debate. Nobody has addressed my actual question and I have just been repeatedly attacked and smeared by people accusing me of views that I don’t hold in the least!
  2. Wow! Ok I don’t even know where to start! First of all, you have misread me very badly. I am not a Green Movement supporter, I am not a MEK/MKO supporter, like I said repeatedly I support the ISLAMIC Republic (not the Iranian Republic). I have never uttered such slogans because I fully support Iran’s foreign policy across the Middle East. I support Hezbollah, Hamas and the IRGC. None of my words indicate otherwise. I am a proud Iranian Shia to the bone. Your ridiculous ad hominem attempt to slander me bears no relation to anything I wrote. Next, none of the articles you post
  3. I am not sure this discussion is going to go anywhere. If you don’t understand why the Sayed’s arrest would not be publicised in Iranian State media, then you don’t have a very good grasp of Iranian politics or the different schools of thought in Qom. It is not only the Shirazis who have been placed under house arrest, it is most often reformists, with Ayatollah Montazeri being a classic example. Sayed Haydari is of course completely opposed to the Shirazis and Akhbaris and is staunchly anti-sectarian and pluralistic in his theological views. The reason he has been arrested is not because he i
  4. I mean you can choose to believe what you want and I understand you might be paranoid about non Iranian news sources. But what about the tweet I posted from Sayid Hassan Mousavi who has been campaigning for his release, as have other clerics? Here are three different videos of campaigners talking about his detention: Like I said my family in Tehran have confirmed he has been arrested and his office has been shut down and I have also been in contact with people who have studied under him who have explained his situation. The video you posted is very old, mor
  5. It has been widely known that he has been under house arrest for many months. Here are some links: https://www.alarabiya.net/amp/iran/2021/01/18/الحرس-الثوري-يفرض-اقامة-جبرية-على-الحيدري-تغريدة-تكشف https://www.nabdalyemen.com/main/2021/01/18/الحرس-الثوري-يفرض-إقامة-جبرية-على-كمال/ https://en.radiofarda.com/a/ayatollah-breaks-with-conventions-triggering-criticism/30921756.html My family in Iran have confirmed this and I have also been in contact with people who follow his work who have explained how serious his situation is.
  6. I wrote about this a couple of days ago but didn’t get any response, so have decided to rephrase it into a few questions. My Marja is Ayatollah Haydari. He is currently under house arrest, which means for several months his office has been closed, content has been removed from his site and is no longer being updated and he has no contact with the outside world. There has been no indication when this situation will end. I have been using his Risalah that was published in English in 2015 and the few istefta up on his site in order to follow his rulings. However this has become increasingly diffi
  7. My marja is Ayatollah Kamal al Haydari, who has unfortunately been under house arrest for quite a few months now. As a result, his office has closed, some content has been removed from his site and it has stopped being updated. This means that it has become impossible to get rulings on certain subjects, ask questions or gain clarifications on rulings he has already published. I continue to refer to his Risalah which I think was published in 2015 and the small amount of istefta that is still up on his website and for when there isn't a ruling or the ruling is vague I consult Ayatollah Sistani o
  8. That’s very reassuring. Thank you so much.
  9. Jazakallah khair. That was actually really helpful advice, thank you.
  10. I need some help with a ritual purity question as I made a mistake a couple of days ago and don't know if it needs fixing or how to fix it. A couple of days ago my bathroom floor was contaminated with droplets of urine and menses blood. It was very early in the morning and I wanted to purify it as quickly as possible. In my haste though I have suddenly realised that I may have missed a crucial step. My marja is Ayatollah al-Haydari and his instructions in this instance are: "When purifying land, the original Nijasah (impurity) must first be removed thereafter that area should be washed althoug
