We believe that Allah the Almighty will not let the taking of such innocent lives, including the lives of the innocent people who have been martyred in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Iraq, Syrian, and the other Islamic countries, go unpunished.
Once again a large number of innocent people were brutally killed in a terrorist attack on a Shi’a mosque in Pakistan, leaving all the Shi’as and other free-spirited people around the world heartbroken.
The US administration’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem Al Quds as the capital of Israel is a violation of the UN Security Council resolutions and a violation of all international laws about the Palestinian city. His decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem Al Quds in six months will cause tremendous and worldwide hatred against the US; all the Muslims of the world and many free-spirited nations and politicians have strongly condemned the decision.
Indeed holding such workshops, with such supreme goals, in the present time and in the place where it is to be held, is considered an invaluable cultural undertaking. Certainly, such undertakings can have a substantial role in the promotion of the School of the Ahl-al-Bayt (ʿa).
The ignominious defeat and downfall of the self-proclaimed Daesh state was an edifying lesson to those who are busy conspiring against the Muslim world and who recruit and send mercenaries from all around the world to destabilize and break up various Muslim countries.We extend our congratulations to the entire world for the downfall of the rootless Daesh state.
Indeed, our people will be even more determined in the fight against the Takfīrī terrorists, and they will not rest until all of these atrocious Takfīrī groups are obliterated from the face of the earth
The rulers of Bahrain have caused a new tragedy, out of their blind allegiance to Saudi Arabia and the United States, by their cowardly raid on the house of the great cleric and scholar, Ayatollah Shaykh Isa Ghāsim. In this raid, they have kidnapped the great Shia cleric, and killed, wounded, and arrested a large number of innocent people. By so doing, the rulers of Bahrain have indeed added another dark page to their dark history, and planted the seeds of hatred and animosity all throughout that country.
The office of Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi hereby announces that his eminence has sent no one to establish his Bithah for this year"s Hajj pilgrimage from Iraq and any such news is completely false. Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi will have not have any representatives, whether from Iraq or Iran, to establish his Bi‘thah during this year’s Hajj pilgrimage.
I ask you and your friends to end your hunger strike as we are worried for your health/we also ask the Pakistani government to properly respond to your demands and to those of the other Pakistani Muslims, as they are legitimate and reasonable demands.
We do commend and admire the deep understanding of the realities of the Muslim world and the astuteness of the Shaykh of al-Azhar. We also stress the fact that not only does this fatwa prevent the massacre of the innocent Muslims, but it will also be a hindrance to the Islamophobia which is being promoted by the westerners, who are either unaware of the reality of Islam or are enemies of Islam.
Expressing his gratitude to all the people due to their vast participation in the Quds Day rallies, Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi stated: “Our people proved today as they always do that they are loyal to the values of Islam and those of the Islamic revolution”.
We hope that the Pakistani authorities quickly intervene and take the necessary measures in order to prevent such irrational things from taking place, since such things can endanger the unity of the Muslims
The issues pertaining to the two Holy Shrines in Mecca and Medina need to be resolved one day; this can be accomplished only when a committee of experienced and skilled individuals regarding the issue of the Hajj pilgrimage is s e l e c ted by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to superintend the affairs of the two Holy Shrines in Mecca and Medina. In such a case, Saudi Arabia can also have a member in that committee.
We strongly condemn this horrific crime and we have no doubt that these innocent bloods will be avenged. We also believe that this atrocity has been committed as an act of vengeance and to make up for the abject failure of the Saudis in Iraq, Syria, and Yemen.
I have always been optimistic about you and so I hope that you will firmly stand up against this deviation. Such deviations can cause the al- Azhar to fall prey to the evil plots of the enemies of Islam and those of the Wahhabis and Takfiris. The Wahhabis and Takfiris seek only to spread divisiveness among Muslims and so I hope that you will stop them before they can carry out their evil plans and take you away from the path of moderation.
Recently some Vatican officials asked the Islamic scholars to express their opinions regarding the barbaric attacks by TakfiriISIL group against the Christians and other religious minorities in northern Iraq.
Despite all calamities the war on Gaza caused for the Muslim world and Humanity, it however, entailed a number positive out-turns; it, more than anytime, awakened the conscience of the world againstthe occupier Israel. This war also totally took away the trust the world had in international organizations and the claimers of human rights.
Undoubtedly the only way to protect the country from secession and to kick out the barbaric bloodthirsty enemy is to reach a national unity which of course is to be gained through sacrifice, self-restraint of all political parties and paying heed to their responsibility towards God in such critical moment.
A sympathy and passion has spread throughout the world against the aggressive, atrocious Israeli regime and in spite of the deadly silence of Israel’s supporters as well as some of the Arab leaders, the outreaching flood of protesting people against Israel, condemning the killing of the defenseless civilians.
These Takfiri terrorists and their supporters must know that if needed millions of people from other countries will march towards Iraq, just like the way they do on the Commemoration of Arba‘in, and j o i n the Iraqi nation and will help the brave army of Iraq.
I urge international organizations as well as religious leaders all around the globe to denounce the recent terrorist attacks on Iraq and take a serious measure for stopping their supporters from backing them financially and logistically otherwise this fire will burn up the whole region and even will reach to the western countries.
