His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad Saeed al-Hakeem directed the students of Iraqi universities towards investing into the sorrowful tragedy of Karbala and to gain from it in today’s era. The tragedy calls to the true path of salvation and achievement of this word and the Hereafter. He gave these words of guidance to a contingent of medical and engineering students from various parts of the country on 16th September 2018.
Similarly, he advised them to make use of the educational courses of beliefs and Sharia laws, so that one can form a strong foundation of reality and pass it on to others; one can thus avoid misguidance from the truth. One should try to fully comprehend the revolution of Imam Husain (peace be upon him) and his sacrifices, as he gave everything that he had for the cause of the religion and its sanctity, so that his mission and purpose can give fruit to a path to it, all in the interest of this religion and in the struggle against deviation and unveiling falsification.
In the end of this meeting, His Eminence prayed to the Most High and Powerful to accept their pilgrimage, (Zyarat) and their good deeds, and to support them to the path that pleases Him. Indeed He is the Al-Hearing and the Responder to supplications.

Day Questions

What proof is there that the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny) was created from light?

It is mentioned in many narrations that the Prophet and the Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) were lights created before the creation of Adam (peace be upon him). To this effect, the Ziyara of Jame’a includes the passage: “Allah created you as lights around His throne until he blessed us with you…”. This does not mean that they were created from this material light. It is rather, a metaphysical meaning that the narration referred to it. Allah Knows best.

When one enters the place where he will relieve himself, it is recommended to say: "Bismillah, Allahumma Inee A'outhu bika min-al-khabeeth al-mukhabbath ar-rijs an-najis ash-Shaytan ar-rajeem".  "بسم الله اللهم إني أعوذ بك من الخبيث المخبث الرجس النجس الشيطان الرجيم".
