His Eminence, Ayatollah Sayyid Mohammad Saeed Al-Hakeem received a group of followers of the Ahlulbayt (Peace be upon them) from India, mainly from the city of Mumbai. He advised the believers around the world to guard themselves with the Islamic original heritage and their faith, and to propagate it with softness, love, compassion, honesty and sincerity, and to fulfill their duty in reflecting a true image of the Shias and of the ways of the Ahlulbayt (Peace be upon them).

He also advised his respected guests that every one of them should undertake their missionary role through the presentation of the best ethics and morality, which the Infallible Imams (Peace be upon them) showed the path to, upon which their good followers travelled.

His Eminence concluded the meeting with a prayer to the Most High and Powerful that He accepts the guests' Ziyarah on these great nights of the holy month of Ramadan, and that He returns them to their homelands having achieved success and prosperity of this world and the Hereafter, God willing.

Day Questions

Is it prohibited to tear one’s clothes? And is there any kaffarah if one does it?

It is prohibited for the man to tear his clothes in mourning over his child or wife, and the kaffarah for doing so is giving ten needy people 900 grams of food each - staple food items such as dates, flour and rice - or clothing them; if neither of these are possible, then he should fast for three consecutive days. Tearing the clothes for other than that is not prohibited, like a man tearing his clothes in mourning for his brother, or a woman tearing her clothes in mourning her husband, son, or brother.
