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.

Day Questions

My children are young and I fear that they will not be able to handle my wealth after my death, due to their immaturity. The oldest of my children is 22 years old. Is it permitted that after I die all my wealth is given to my wife?

The Sharia limits your discretion on the distribution of your wealth after your death to a third of your estate. If you stated in your will that all your money is to go to your wife, she will receive a third of the estate, and she will then receive her Sharia-defined share of the inheritance from the remaining two-thirds. In respect to the rest of the inheritance, she can only receive from it as much as the other heirs agree to pass over to her.

Is prayers obligatory while a woman is bleeding due to a miscarriage?

If the miscarried fetus was recognized as a child: (a) If she has a habit of duration, then it is obligatory not to offer the prayers and not to have sexual intercourse with her husband for the number of days that corresponds to her menstruation period. If she continues to see blood after this period, then as an obligatory precaution she should do the same for a further day. She may continue to do so until the completion of the ten days. The remaining period of discharge is considered to be as Istihadha. (b) If she does not a habit of duration, she should observe the above mentioned rulings for ten days. The remaining period of discharge is considered to be as Istihadha, and based on an obligatory precaution she should observe the rules of the woman during lochia (Nifas) for the completion of eighteen days. If the miscarried fetus was not recognized as a child, like if it is a clot or lump of flesh, then based on an obligatory precaution she should offer the prayers based on the appropriate level of Istihadha and refrain from performing what is prohibited on the woman during lochia (Nifas).

If his testimony was with the acknowledgment of its meanings and commitment to them in such a way that he considers himself to be a Muslim, then he is one and the marriage with him is valid.
