Press Release on the American Administration’s Decision to Move the US Embassy to Jerusalem
2017/12/10

In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is to God, the Lord of the worlds; and may God send his blessings on our master Mohammed and his holy progeny.

We condemn the decision of the American administration to move the US Embassy to the occupied city of Jerusalem, as it is an affront to the Palestinian people and disregard for the feelings of Muslims.

We want to point out that this stance is a natural consequence of the distancing of the Muslims from the teachings of their true religion, their neglect of their shared matters and interests, their fighting amongst themselves, and the spread of the epidemic of extremism and terrorism which has targeted them, and destroyed their societies and their towns, and has distorted the name of their religion. God Almighty has said: “And obey God, and obey the Messenger, and do not into disputes, lest you lose heart and your power departs.”

Today, all are invited – especially those fostering and supporting terrorism – to seriously revise their previous stances, and to open a new page, to unify the positions of the Islamic nations and to build firm foundations in establishing good relations with other nations, which reflects the pliability of their religion and its genuine values.

We seek support and help from only Him, and He is the guardian of the believers

Day Questions

If a Shia man marries according to the customs of Nepal, not knowing the Islamic method, is the marriage valid?

If the woman was Muslim and the proposal and acceptance had taken place between the man and woman i.e. the marriage contact, then the marriage is correct even if it was associated with wrong practices. If the woman was not Muslim or the acceptance and the proposal did not take place between the couple, the marriage did not take place.

Can a divorced woman remarry without the permission of her father?

She does not require the permission of the father for the second marriage, if her first marriage was consummated, although it is better to correspond with the family as this preserves the links of love and respect within the family.

Can a mature man wear short pants (up to his knees or a little above), in public?

It is not part of the pubic area that men should cover when they are in public unless such a thing subjects the person to be humiliated then it becomes prohibited.
