His Eminence Grand Ayatollah al-Hakeem advises the preachers from Pakistan to reach the remote areas to spread the message of Islam and the Ahlulbait

His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad Saeed al-Hakeem spoke to male and female preachers from Pakistan of the necessity of reaching the remote areas of Pakistan in order to teach the people there the Islamic laws, and to invite them to the True Path, and to propagate to them the message of the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them).

This advice was also directed especially towards the female preachers. After exerting their efforts in learning and studying, they must undertake their duties as preachers, by explaining the Islamic laws pertaining to women, so that the women can benefit from them in those areas. His Eminence continued to advise preachers towards having good behavior and etiquettes, humility, and keeping close to other believers, so that every one of them can fulfil their duties towards God in a manner that pleases Him, the Prophet and the Infallibles (peace be upon them all).

At the end, His Eminence supplicated to God that He accept the guests’ ziyarah and good deeds, and He answers their calls, and He supports them in their endeavors and duties, while interacting with others with love, compassion, honesty and humility. He prayed that He gives them the fruit of their good acts in this life and in the Hereafter. He is, indeed, All-Hearing, All-Knowing.

Day Questions

What is the kaffara of eating or using perfume in ihram?

It is prohibited for the person during ihram to use musk, amber, saffron and waras; it is also prohibited to use camphor based on obligatory precaution. It is disliked to use other kinds of perfumes and scents. The kaffara for eating food that contains such scents is to slaughter a goat or sheep for the needy people. When one eats more than once, he should repeatedly pay the kaffara. Based on an obligatory precaution one should give the said kaffara for other usages of the mentioned perfumes and scents during ihram.

Where can I give the food that I want to pay as Kaffara and be sure that it will be given to the poor?

If you could not find needy Shia believers, you could pass the cost of the food to the offices of the Marja in order to be given as food to the needy believers.

I got married, but did not consummate the marriage, so I am still a virgin. My husband is not in the same country. He might divorce me without asking whether I am in my menstruation period or not. Would the divorce be valid?

It is irrelevant whether you are in the mensuration period or not in the validity of the divorce if the marriage was not consummated, i.e. sexual intercourse did not occur.
