The Press Release on the Terrorist Attack in Quetta Pakistan
2013/01/16

We were shocked by the heinous crime that was committed by the terrorists in the city of Quetta in Pakistan, that lead to the martyrdom and wounding of a huge number of innocent people. This crime is part of sequence of organized assaults against the followers of the Ahlul-Bait (peace be upon them).

As we ask the Almighty Allah to send His mercy on the souls of the martyrs and to grant the wounded fast recovery, we condemn this crime and all crimes that were committed by the terrorist groups. These crimes violate all humane criterion and values, and they tarnish the image of Islam and the name of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his holy progeny). We hold the Pakistani government responsible for protecting its own innocent citizens and to bring the perpetrators to justice. We also consider the silence of the Muslim dignitaries and foundations and the carelessness of the international community as important factors that encourage the terrorists to continue shedding blood of innocent people.

Day Questions

Is it obligatory to obey one’s father in choosing a wife for marriage?

Disobeying the parents in such a matter is not considered as ingratitude (Uqooq), but one should refrain from breaking the relationship with them because of such an issue.

I offer prayers in my office. Can I do wudhu and pray with my shoes on in case I am unable to go to the mosque.

The wudhu is not valid with the shoes on. Praying with the shoes on is permissible if one can place the tips of the two big toes on the ground while wearing the shoes.
