Day Questions

I would like to know if I can change my Taqleed from a living Mujtahid to Ayatullah Sayyid Sa'eed al-Hakeem?

You should stay on your Taqleed unless it is proven to you that his eminence Sayyid al-Hakeem (may Allah prolong his life) is more knowledgeable than your current Marja by referring to the experts who can certify this when they refer to the juristic derivation ways of both of them.

We know from verse (33:33) that the Ahlulbait are Imam Ali, Fatimah Hasan and Husain (peace be upon them) and we also know from the hadith the names of the twelve Imams. Can the other offspring of the Imam be considered amongst the Ahlulbait?

The verses and the narrations that are reported in the superiority of the Ahlulbait are specific to the five infallibles: The Prophet, Imam Ali, Fatima Al-Zahra, Imam Hasan and Imam Husain (peace be upon them all). Sometimes, one can understand that some religious texts include the rest of the twelve Imams (peace be upon them). This does not include the other offspring of the Imams.

Has the Quran undergone alteration – tahrif – of the order of its verses, or is the order of the verses the same order as that during the time of our Holy prophet (PBUHF)?

The sequence of the verses is same as the sequence in the time of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him and his holy progeny).

If someone has cat's hair on his clothes can he offer the prayers with those clothes?

The prayer is invalid if there was cat's hair on the person's clothes based on compulsory precaution.
