Day Questions

Is mourning Imam Hussein (peace be upon him) permissible or recommended?

The commemoration of the Ahlulbait (Peace be upon them) is amongst the best deeds that the religious texts have emphasized on, and it is narrated that there are great rewards for those who perform it.

Can we adopt Sufi practices of Irfan?

It is not right to depend on other than the holy Quran and the reliable narrations of the Prophet and the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) in the matters of religion, including Irfan. There are many such narrations that explain the recommended worship acts and the kind of relation a man should have with Almighty Allah. Muslims are encouraged to gain the religious and godly knowledge from these original sources only.

Are the Salafist ideas tantamount to infidelity?

The ideas of the Salafis are not considered infidelity. It is, however, some sort of ignorance. The intellect and the Holy Quran indicate that Almighty Allah does not have a body so He is not limited by time and space. The Almighty said: "There is no secret conference of three but He is their fourth, nor of five but He is their sixth, nor of less than that or more but He is with them where ever they may be," (58:7) and He also said: "Nothing is as His likeness." (42:11).
