Grand Ayatollah Sistanis answer to some questions on COVID-19 Vaccine


January 26, 2021 - 1:00 PM
The office of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Sistani, Shia prominent religious authority in Najaf, has answered some questions pertaining to the Coronavirus vaccine.
AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The office of Grand Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Sistani, Shia prominent religious authority in Najaf, has answered some questions pertaining to the Coronavirus vaccine.
The following questions pertaining to the Coronavirus vaccine were sent to his Eminence Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Sistani (DZ) from The Islamic Education Department at the World Federation.

Question 1: Vaccines against Coronavirus have already been manufactured by Pfizer, AstraZeneca & Moderna, and others are expected, or already on the market. The medical authorities of several countries have approved these vaccines and authorised mass vaccination programmes, despite some side effects. Some muqallideen are apprehensive about the vaccines
potential side effects, as the testing & approval processes were expedited by the authorities, given the urgency of the pandemic. Some ethnic groups, based on previous negative experiences with mass vaccination programmes, are sceptical about these vaccines, although no serious side-effects have been observed in most cases. In such circumstances, what does His Eminence advise?

Answer 1: In such circumstances, it is appropriate to rely on the advice given by experienced medical experts. As per Shari
ah, it is mandatory to use an approved vaccine in a situation when the probability of suffering from the Coronavirus infection, with its potentially life threatening and/or serious untreatable complications, far outweigh the probable serious side effects of getting vaccinated.

Question 2: Governments have set up prioritisation programmes, so that high-risk groups are vaccinated first. This includes, the elderly, public safety officials and others at significant risk. Is it necessary to observe this prioritisation program, or is it permissible to jump the queue by paying money and get vaccinated earlier?
Answer 2: It is not permissible to violate the prioritization scheme if its mandated by the law of the land.

Question 3: Some developing countries may not have the financial means to procure and make available vaccines for all their citizens. If doctors recommend taking the vaccine, and if private funds do not suffice to procure, distribute and administer the vaccines inside and outside the Jamaat, would His Eminence grant permission to use religious funds for this purpose?
Answer 3: In cases where necessary there is no objection.

Question 4: If a vaccine manufacturer appeals for volunteers to participate in trials for vaccine efficacy and safety, can mu
mineen join the trial if the manufacturer gives assurance of careful monitoring and caution for the safety of the volunteers, though there may be risk of unexpected side-effects, which in some cases could be lethal?
Answer 4: If it has potentially lethal or extremely serious untreatable complications, then it
s not allowed; unless the risk is low and negligible.

Question 5: In order to stabilize the vaccine, manufacturers use several additives. Sometimes this can include porcine gelatine. Is it sufficient to rely on the manufacturers
non-declaration, or declaration of non-usage of such gelatine? If there is a possibility of chemical transformation during the manufacturing process, is it necessary to investigate? If the amount of gelatine is not negligible, would emergency use to prevent a potentially life-threatening infection, justify its inoculation?
Answer 5: In all (the above) circumstances there is no legal Shar
i objection.
Seal of the Office of Agha Sistani (may his life be lengthened), Najaf e Ashraf.

December 29, 2020 - 7:40 AM
In a letter to the leader of the Catholics of the world, Pope Francis, the ABWA Secretary General, Ayatollah Ramazani, congratulated the blessed birth of the right Prophet and the manifestation of Gods attributes, Prophet Jesus Christ (a.s.).
In a letter to the leader of the Catholics of the world, Pope Francis, the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly Secretary General, Ayatollah Ramazani, congratulated the blessed birth of the right Prophet and the manifestation of God
s attributes, Prophet Jesus Christ (a.s.).

The text of the letter of Ayatollah Ramazani to Pope Francis is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“And We made the son of Mary and his mother a portent” (Holy Quran, 23:50)

Your Excellency

Pope Francis, the Eminent Leader of the Catholic Church

Hereby, I extend my congratulations on the occasion of the birthday of Jesus Christ the son of Maria (peace be upon him), and the beginning of the new Christian year, and together with your Honor we and other Muslim believers, will celebrate the birth of the Great Divine Prophet and the Messenger of love, affection and spirituality, and as we expect you to pray, we pray for that great Leader of the Christianity and all the believers in the world.

We are confident in God
s providence and grace in answering the prayers of the believers at certain times and days, and we believe that the Lord will answer the prayers that come from the hearts of the true believers, those who are waiting for the Advent of the Savior at the End Times.

We are passing behind a year in which various events caused great pain and suffering to humanity. Assassination, war, smuggling, violence, stockpiles of weapons, the weakening of the sacred institution of the family, as well as the devastating outbreak of the coronavirus, have caused increasing suffering among nations and peoples, and also increasing concerns among religious leaders and thinkers worldwide.

Expressing sympathy with the victims of all religions and nations of the world, the Islamic seminary and religious leaders in Iran, wish health, peace in the world, and divine mercy on the victims and healing the sick.

The religious community is also grateful to Your Excellency and those who work to help alleviate the plight of human beings at this critical juncture. In addition to praying and wishing for world peace, we, in our turn, are working on planning to address these difficulties and concerns, and we will not fail to serve the world.

In the logic of the divine religions, natural disasters are in fact signs for mankind to pay attention to important divine trials. Divine theology, familiarity with Resurrection, seeking the implementation and manifestation the world peace and justice, and realization of the ethics in the societies would be of the effects of this spiritual consideration. And this is an opportunity to manifest the high humane characteristics in society and to flourish the spirit of sympathy, self-sacrifice, love, and affection for others.

Comprehensive epistemological and scientific, logical and wise study of these events and how to deal with them, avoiding the false religion-science dichotomy, developing research to deal with behaviors non-conforming to the teachings of religion, trying to achieve social vitality and economic justice, strengthening solidarity and hope, paving the way for peace, kindness, and creativity in society, etc., are clear and obvious examples of the wide range of duties of all elites, intellectuals, and religious and cultural figures.

At the same time, religious leaders and scholars are responsible for protecting the spiritual perfection and health of society, paving the way for the manifestation of more virtuous morals, and strengthening religious belief and knowledge. Propagation of the teachings for prayer and supplication for the realization of spirituality in society and the emergence of hope in the hearts of individuals is another important duty of religious leaders in today
s world.

The realization of these matters undoubtedly requires the cooperation of academic and religious centers, along with the encouragement and support of the great leaders of religions who, using the divine teachings of the prophets as a precious asset, guide human beings towards epistemological and human perfection.

Addressing the harms which have attacked human thought and ideals, crises such as insulting the divine religions and their sanctities, injustice, discrimination, sanctions, environmental crisis, war, terrorism, promoting the use of weapons of mass destruction, etc., will not be likely except with the accompaniment and interaction of religious leaders and their attention to Revelatory teachings.

Achieving a kind of thought-based international consensus and paying attention to the principles of the teachings of great prophets such as “Moses”, “Jesus” and “Muhammad”, peace be upon them, is definitely one of the most important bases for achieving It is important to this destination.

Achieving a kind of thought-based international consensus and drawing the attention of the great powers of the world to the principles of the teachings of great prophets such as Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, peace be upon them, is certainly one of the most important factors in achieving this important goal.

Thank God, in line with the religious men of Islam and the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.), Your Excellency also believe that the elimination of corruption, discrimination, sanctions, injustice and other calamities caused by human oppression, cannot be removed except by adhering to morality, spirituality, practicing the teachings of the divine Prophets, as well as the strengthening love, justice, peace and solidarity among the individual, family, and society. Also, following the religious leaders and good servants of God is one of the most effective factors in this difficult path.

True divine leaders have always been and will be faithful to their friendship and covenant with God, the Almighty, and His Prophets.

In today
s difficult conditions of the world and despite enduring the pressures of sanctions and many restrictions, the Islamic Republic of Iran under the leadership of sources of emulations and the leaders of the Islamic Revolution, witnesses indescribable endeavors of voluntary movements, sympathy, and extensive cooperation between the government and all walks of life, including physicians, nurses, employees, military staffs, seminary and university professors, students, students of religious sciences, etc., who not only strive to achieve the same great goals but also to serve other human beings, regardless of gender, nationality, race, and religion.

Once again, I take this opportunity to congratulate the blessed birth of the right Prophet and the manifestation of the divine attributes, Jesus Christ (p.b.u.h), and I pray for health and well-being for Your Excellency, and as the secretary-general of a religious-academic institution with the international scope of performance, I declare that I am ready to share academic, research, cultural and religious experiences in the international arena and in the same direction of achieving the goals Your Excellency specified in the “Annual Message of Christmas”.

Peace be upon Your Excellency and all Great Religious Leaders

Reza Ramazani
The Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly

Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly warning statement against insulting Holy Qur'an in Sweden


August 26, 2020 - 9:52 PM

In a statement, Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly condemned the anti-Islamists' decision to burn the Holy Qur'an in Malmö, Sweden.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly issued a scathing statement after anti-Islamists set a date for the burning of the Holy Qur'an in Malmö, Sweden.

Denouncing this inhumane act of anti-Islamists, the Assembly called on the Swedish government and security and law enforcement agencies to prevent the escalating of the situation and the hurting of the feelings of the Muslims worldwide by immediately revoking the permit for this gathering.

A part of this statement reads, "The illegal and unprincipled action of the Swedish political authorities and police in issuing a gathering permit for anti-Islamists, who are devoid of rationality, spirituality, and humanity and have no knowledge of the message of the Muslim holy book - the Holy Qur'an , is deeply regrettable for us."

The full text of the warning statement of Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly is as follows:
In the name of God, the Almighty  
The norm-breaking and immoral act of a Danish anti-Islamist in announcing a day for "a gathering for burning the Qur'an in Sweden", has angered Muslims and worried many libertarians and justice seekers worldwide.
Such heinous and vile acts are contrary to the principles of respecting the sanctities of other religions, beliefs, and traditions of different nations of the world and would undermine the peaceful coexistence and joint efforts toward constructing peace and friendship among various nations and ethnicities.
As a non-governmental organization, Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly whose serious mission is to raise awareness of Islamic societies
As an international non-governmental organization whose mission is to raise the awareness of Islamic societies about their human and divine duties and responsibilities, as well as to strengthen the friendship and peaceful coexistence and respect for cultures, customs, religious beliefs and sanctities of followers of different religions, the Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly strongly condemns such divisive and hateful acts.
The illegal and unprincipled action of the Swedish political authorities and police in issuing a gathering permit for anti-Islamists, who are devoid of rationality, spirituality, and humanity and have no knowledge of the message of the Muslim holy book - the Holy Qur'an , is deeply regrettable for us.
In addition to strongly denouncing this unwise and criminal act, Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly calls on the Swedish government and security and law enforcement agencies to prevent the escalating of the situation and the hurting of the feelings of the Muslims in Sweden an all over the world by immediately revoking the permit for this gathering.
The Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly also urges governments of Islamic countries, the Organisation of the Islamic Cooperation, scholars and sources of emulation, international organizations and forums, and all intellectuals, thinkers, religious leaders and those who have the legal and personal capacity, to carry out actions, such as enlightening public opinion, protesting against any act that insults the sanctities of other religions, as well as inviting the people and government authorities, cultural and religious authorities in Sweden to prevent this tragedy; in every possible way, to openly and strongly express their protest to this inhumane and inappropriate move in a loud and effective manner.
The Assembly also urges the general public - especially Swedish Muslims - to remain calm and refrain from similar actions, to prevent the deteriorating of the crisis; but still in any way possible, such as issuing a statement, denouncing, expressing their protest in the media and protesting strongly on social networks, prevent this inappropriate move.
Islam is the religion of friendship, love, respect, peace and justice, and the protection of the divine sanctities and the holy books - especially the Holy Qur'an - is the duty of every believer and Muslim.
We pray God, the Almighty, to guideand save all nations - including ignorant people who have no knowledge of the soul-nurturing message of Islam and its holy book, and who are captivated by sensual desires and evil temptations and cause sorrow and hurt the feelings of Muslims. We also call on everyone to work for peace and friendship and to strive to expand them around the world. May we witness a day of the flourishing of truth, justice and liberation from the darkness of ignorance and oppression throughout the world.

"And peace to all who follow guidance." (20:47)
Ahl Al-Bayt World Assembly
August 25, 2020

Rasmus Paludan
, the leader of the Danish nationalist and far right party "Hard Line", is invited to burn the Qura'n by Swedish hard liner and racist Dan Park. The Qur'an burning will take place on 28 August in front of a mosque in Malmö's immigrant heavy Rosengård district at the same time as the Muslim Friday prayers.
The gathering, which Swedish authorities have surprisingly authorized to hold, is aimed at protesting what organizers have called the "Swedish Islamization process".
In March 2019, a few days after the massacre of Muslims in two mosques in New Zealand, Paludan burned a copy of the holy Qura'n in a Muslim area in Copenhagen, Denmark, just 100 meters from where Muslims were praying, and caused severe tension at the time.

Alignment of science and religion in Shia jurisprudence


August 5, 2020 - 8:05 AM
Shia jurists have always paid special attention to scientific data when issuing fiqh rules and there has never been a conflict between science and religion in Shiism as there has been in Christianity.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The outbreak of the coronavirus and the consequent closure of mosques, religious gatherings, holy shrines such as the shrine of Imam Reza (PBUH) along with some emotional reactions from Muslims may have highlighted the conflict between religion and science for some people. The advent of the month of Muharram and its mourning rituals on the heels of a resurgence of the coronavirus has again raised the issue of the relation between science and religion. However, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution has always stressed following the experts
advice and recommendations, and also there has never been a conflict between science and religion among prominent Shia jurists the way there has been in Christianity.

Jurists: Trustees of Prophet and Fortress of Islam

In the Shia analytical system, what is at the heart of the management of religion is not the sacred words such as the ones in Qur'an, but the jurist
s understanding of the words, which is authentic and permissible by God to be trusted. In other words, the only authentic understanding of religion is the one obtained with a valid methodology of jurisprudence and ijtihad. Therefore, to cite something regarding Islam, one should not consider the words of any expert, but to take into account the words of jurists and mujtahids, who have made correct connections between verses and quotations and present the views of religion about various issues. Perhaps, it is for this reason that in narratives, jurists have been described as the trustees of the Prophet, his successors, and the pillars of religion, whose passing away would deal an irreparable and severe blow to the body of religion.

Religion-science conflict in the views of believers and jurists

With the development of new sciences in Western civilization, and due to its totalitarian approach to conquering the physical and materialistic world, it was felt necessary to outcast the old rival, religion. And perhaps, raising the idea of contradiction between science and religion was the best way to realize this goal. Widespread distortions in Christianity, along with mismanagement of the church, were other factors that exacerbated the conflict between religion and science among Christians.

With the globalization of Western civilization, the idea of science-religion conflict was spread to the Islamic world. If the believers of Islam had seen any conflict between science and religion, the Shia jurisprudence did not see any contradiction between the two at all. In the analytical system of jurists, a proper distinction was made between scientific data and theories based on the modern worldview. In other words, Shia jurists have always been in the service of reason and evidence, so much so that if they have solid data on a subject, and are faced with different religious readings for it and one contradicted the concrete data, they would easily put it aside as
corrupt reasoning. Shia jurists have always paid special attention to scientific data when issuing jurisprudential (fiqh) rules.

Science and thematics of jurisprudential rules

Shia jurists have long considered their duty to be limited to issuing jurisprudential rules and have left the thematics to the experts of that particular area. The presence of different groups of experts in various economic, medical, etc. fields indicates the jurists
reliance on and attention to specialized and scientific data.

To explain this, it should be said that every issue requires an appropriate ruling. For example, if the issue is about the fasting of a healthy person, then the ruling issued by the jurist is that the person is obligated to fast; however, if it is about a person with medical conditions, then the ruling will change and fasting will no longer be obligatory.

The jurists
reliance on experts opinions is seen not only in thematics but also in the application of jurisprudential rules. Religious figures known as marja taqlid (literally: source to follow) have always emphasized in their fatwas to follow doctors' instructions. There are many examples in this regard, some of which you can read below:

Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi

Q: What is the religious ruling for those who have started to smoke or those addicts who insist on smoking despite being able to easily quit?

A: Smoking cigarettes and all kinds of tobacco is haram, and because quitting is possible even for addicts, no case of emergency is usually imagined unless it is prescribed by a well-informed physician and there is no difference between beginners and addicts.

Taking Ayatollah Makarem
s fatwa into account, it becomes clear that the reason smoking is haram is because of its harmful effects backed by medical experts. Since self-harm is prohibited in Islam, Ayatollah Makarem has declared smoking as haram, yet he has made an exception for the recommendations of medical experts.

Ayatollah Khamenei

Q: The ophthalmologist has forbidden me from fasting and said that I should not fast at all because of my eye problem, but I did not listen to his advice and started fasting. Is it obligatory for me to fast at all?

A: If you are assured by the words of a pious and trustworthy doctor that fasting is harmful to your eyes or even if you fear that it would be harmful, fasting is neither obligatory nor permissible for you.

This fatwa by Ayatollah Khamenei also shows the attention to the importance of experts
knowledge in the Shia jurisprudential system.

In a more obvious example, we can refer to Ayatollah Sistani's answer regarding the manner of holding mourning rituals in the month of Muharram during the coronavirus pandemic:

There are various ways to express grief and sympathy with the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and his holy family on this tragic calamity that has befallen Islam and Muslims, including the following:

1. Significant increase in the live broadcast of the rituals through television networks and cyberspace; to this end, religious and cultural centers and institutions are advised to coordinate with eminent preachers and capable panegyrist, and to encourage believers to listen to the eulogies in their homes and similar places.

2. Holding house gatherings at certain hours of the night or day, where only family members and relatives attend and listen to some mourning programs, either broadcast live on satellite networks or on the Internet.

3. But in public, all hygiene rules and health instructions must be followed carefully. This means social distancing between people and using masks and other tools to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

In this case, it is also necessary to limit the number of attendees to the recommendation of relevant authorities, which of course varies depending on whether the ceremony is being held indoors or outdoors and in which cities.

4. Widespread distribution of Ashura symbols and raising flags and dark-colored monuments in squares, streets, alleys, and other public spaces, while taking care not to trespass into private property and the like, and comply with the country
s laws. It is advised, however, to include in these symbols parts of the words of Imam Hussein (PBUH) regarding the great reformist movement advocated by him and great poems and texts written about the tragedy of Karbala.

5. About traditional foods served on this occasion, it is necessary to consider health protocols in their production and distribution, which means that in order to avoid crowds during the distribution, it is advised to only prepare dry food and deliver it to the houses of the believers.

All these examples indicate the care and attention given by great Shia jurists to scientific opinions regarding thematics and the application of religious rulings to the issue at hand.  

Finally, it should be noted that science has a descriptive and prescriptive aspect. The descriptive or the laboratory and data-driven aspect of science has always been taken into account by Shia jurists, to the point where there has never been any conflict between science and religion. However, the point of conflict for some is only related to the prescriptive aspect of science, which mostly includes different worldviews.

Imam Khamenei
s decree on fasting in Ramadan during Corona


Apr 19, 2020
Grand Ayatollah Khamenei's office for answering questions on religious verdicts has published the ruling concerning fasting in the month of Ramadan during the Coronavirus pandemic. What follows is the full text of the question and answer.
Now that Coronavirus has become widespreadspread rapidly, what are the rules for fasting during the month of Ramadan?
Fasting, which is a religious obligation, is in fact God
s special blessing upon His servants and is a foundation for perfection and spiritual upliftment for humanity. It was obligatory for previous nations as well.
Some of the effects of fasting include gaining a state of spirituality and inner purity, increasing individual and social piety, and the strengthening of one
s willpower and resistance when faced with hardships. The role it plays in peoples health is evident, and God has placed a great reward for those who fast.
Fasting is a religious obligation and a pillar in Islamic Law. Therefore, not fasting during the auspicious month of Ramadan is not allowable unless an individual has a reason to believe that fasting will:
1.    Cause an illness
2.    Intensify an illness
3.    Prolong an illness, or delay one
s recuperation.
In such cases, one should not fast, but it will be necessary to make up for the missed fasts at a later time.
Obviously, it is enough if this conviction is obtained based on the opinion of a religious physician.
Therefore, if a person has a reasonable fear of being subject to any of the above-mentioned difficulties, they should not fast, but it will be necessary to make up for these missed fasts at a later time.

Which supplication did Imam Khamenei recommend after the outbreak of Coronavirus?


Mar 4, 2020
During the ceremony for Tree Planting Day, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution advised that everyone comply with the officials and medical experts' advice and guidance in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. He also invited the people to trust in and call on God. Furthermore, His Eminence stressed the importance of reciting the seventh supplication in “Sahifah Sajjadiyah”. Thus, Khamenei.ir is publishing the text of this supplication.

بسم الله الرّحمن الرّحیم
In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful

His Supplication when Faced with a Worrisome Task or when Misfortune Descended and at the Time of Distress

یا مَنْ تُحَلُّ بِهِ عُقَدُ الْمَکارِهِ، وَ یا مَنْ یفْثَأُ بِهِ حَدُّ الشَّدَائِدِ، وَ یا مَنْ یلْتَمَسُ مِنْهُ الْمَخْرَجُ إِلَی رَوْحِ الْفَرَجِ.
O He through whom the knots of detested things are untied! O He through whom the cutting edge of hardships is blunted!
O He from whom is begged the outlet to the freshness of relief!

ذَلَّتْ لِقُدْرَتِک الصِّعَابُ، وَ تَسَبَّبَتْ بِلُطْفِک الْأَسْبَابُ، وَ جَرَی بِقُدرَتِک الْقَضَاءُ، وَ مَضَتْ عَلَی إِرَادَتِک الْأَشْیاءُ.
Intractable affairs yield to Thy power, means are made ready by Thy gentleness, the decree goes into effect through Thy power, and all things proceed according to Thy desire.

فَهِی بِمَشِیتِک دُونَ قَوْلِک مُؤْتَمِرَةٌ، وَ بِإِرَادَتِک دُونَ نَهْیک مُنْزَجِرَةٌ.
By Thy desire they follow Thy command without Thy word and by Thy will they obey Thy bans without Thy prohibition.

أَنْتَ الْمَدْعُوُّ لِلْمُهِمَّاتِ، وَ أَنْتَ الْمَفْزَعُ فِی الْمُلِمَّاتِ، لَا ینْدَفِعُ مِنْهَا إِلَّا مَا دَفَعْتَ، وَ لَا ینْکشِفُ مِنْهَا إِلَّا مَا کشَفْتَ
Thou art the supplicated in worries and the place of flight in misfortunes; none of them is repelled unless Thou repellest, none is removed unless Thou removest.

وَ قَدْ نَزَلَ بی یا رَبِّ مَا قَدْ تَکأَّدَنِی ثِقْلُهُ، وَ أَلَمَّ بیمَا قَدْ بَهَظَنِی حَمْلُهُ.
Upon me has come down, My Lord, something whose weight burdens me and upon me has fallen something whose carrying oppresses me.

وَ بِقُدْرَتِک أَوْرَدْتَهُ عَلَی وَ بِسُلْطَانِک وَجَّهْتَهُ إِلَی.
Through Thy power Thou hast brought it down upon me and through Thy authority Thou hast turned it toward me.

فَلَا مُصْدِرَ لِمَا أَوْرَدْتَ، وَ لَا صَارِفَ لِمَا وَجَّهْتَ، وَ لَا فَاتِحَ لِمَا أَغْلَقْتَ، وَ لَا مُغْلِقَ لِمَا فَتَحْتَ، وَ لَا مُیسِّرَ لِمَا عَسَّرْتَ، وَ لَا نَاصِرَ لِمَنْ خَذَلْتَ.
None can send away what Thou hast brought, none can deflect what Thou hast turned, none can open what Thou hast closed, none can close what Thou hast opened, none can make easy what Thou hast made difficult, none can help him whom Thou hast abandoned.

فَصَلِّ عَلَی مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ، وَ افْتَحْ لِی یا رَبِّ بَابَ الْفَرَجِ بِطَوْلِک، وَ اکسِرْ عَنِّی سُلْطَانَ الْهَمِّ بِحَوْلِک، وَ أَنِلْنِی حُسْنَ النَّظَرِ فِیمَا شَکوْتُ، وَ أَذِقْنِی حَلَاوَةَ الصُّنْعِ فِیمَا سَأَلْتُ، وَ هَبْ لِیمِنْ لَدُنْک رَحْمَةً وَ فَرَجاً هَنِیئاً، وَ اجْعَلْ لِی مِنْ عِنْدِک مَخْرَجاً وَحِیاً.
So bless Muhammad and his Household, open for me, my Lord, the door of relief through Thy graciousness, break from me the authority of worry by Thy strength, confer the beauty of Thy gaze upon my complaint, let me taste the sweetness of benefaction in what I ask, give me from Thyself mercy and wholesome relief, and appoint for me from Thyself a quick way out!

وَ لَا تَشْغَلْنِی بِالاهْتِمَامِ عَنْ تَعَاهُدِ فُرُوضِک، وَ اسْتِعْمَالِ سُنَّتِک.
Distract me not through worry from observing Thy obligations and acting in accordance with Thy prescriptions.

فَقَدْ ضِقْتُ لِمَا نَزَلَ بییا رَبِّ ذَرْعاً، وَ امْتَلَأْتُ بِحَمْلِ مَا حَدَثَ عَلَی هَمّاً، وَ أَنْتَ الْقَادِرُ عَلَی کشْفِ مَا مُنِیتُ بِهِ، وَ دَفْعِ مَا وَقَعْتُ فِیهِ، فَافْعَلْ بیذَلِک وَ إِنْ لَمْ أَسْتَوْجِبْهُ مِنْک، یا ذَا الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِیمِ.
My capacity has been straitened, my Lord, by what has come down on me, and I am filled with worry by carrying what has happened to me, while Thou hast power to remove what has afflicted me and to repel that into which I have fallen. So do that for me though I merit it not from Thee, O Possessor of the Mighty Throne!

Following Jesus Requires Adherence to Righteousness: Leader


10:35 - December 25, 2019
TEHRAN (IQNA) Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined how Muslims revere Jesus Christ (PBUH) and said that following his teachings requires adherence to righteousness.
“The honor #Muslims attribute to #JesusChrist (pbuh) is no less than his position and merit in the eyes of the Christian believers in Christianity,” the Leader
