Question:کیا روز عاشورا سلام کرنا یا مصافحہ کرنا صحیح ہے؟ احادیث معصومین سے اس دن سلام کرنے کی ممانعت کیا ثابت ہے ؟

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer:
سلام کرنا مستحبات عمل میں سے ہے ، لہذا
اس جهت سے روز عاشورا کے دن سلام کرنا کراهت نہیں رکھتا ، مگر مصافحه کرنے سے متعلق بعض مراجع کی نظر میں اگر عرف عام میں اسکا منفی اثر لیا جاتا ہے تو اس طرح کے عمل کو ترک کرنا چاہیۓ۔اسلیۓ کہ مصافحه کرنا ایک طرح سے خوشی کا اظہار ہے لہذا ، ترک کرنا بہتر ہے.(تبریزی، جواد، استفتائات جدید، ج 1،ص 454، بی نا، قم، چاپ اول، بی تا.)
 
امام باقر(ع) سے روایت ہے۔ کسی نے سوال کیا روز عاشورا ھم ایک دوسرے کو کیسے تسلیت دیں؟ حضرت نے فرمایا: کہو : "أعظَمَ اللهُ اجورَنا بمُصابِنا بِالحُسَینِ، وَ جَعَلَنا و ایّاکُم مِنَ الطّالِبینَ بِثارِهِ مَع وَلیّهِ الامامِ المَهدیِّ مِن آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ(ع)"؛
[ طوسی، محمد بن الحسن، مصباح المتهجّد و سلاح المتعبّد، ص 772، فقه الشیعه، بیروت، چاپ اول،1411ق.]
 
Question:I would like to know if reciting tasbihs (any tasbih like alhamd, amma yujebul etc) innumerable times with no limit to the number being recited allowed? Will it have any adverse effect?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: No there is no adverse effect for such zikr you may recite as much as you can.
Question:I wanted to know the opinion of these three Ayatollahs A(Sistani, Khamenei and Fadlallah) on if a woman is allowed to go to war and fight the enemies of Islam since the first martyr in Islamic history was a woman that fought to protect the prophet Mohammad saws.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It’s not permitted in Islam for a woman to fight in a battle field with enemies face to face. And if we have some examples where few women came in the battle field was due to other reason but not to fight with the enemies. Also the first lady martyred in Islam was Lady Somaiyya the Mother of Ammar bin Yasir (r.a) but her martyrdom was not taken place in a battle field. She was killed in Mecca. Of course she was martyred in the way of Islam and Prophet (p.b.u.h) but not directly at defence for the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h).
Question:Please help me understand, Quran very clearly says martyrs are alive and mustn’t be even called dead n they r living in abundance n joy. How come ppl mourn ‘the living’ grandson of our beloved prophet then? Isn’t it exactly opposite of what Quran says?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: It’s crystal clear that Martyrs are alive and get near Allah their noble sustenance but Quranic definitions and traditions are different from our definitions and culture. We are still very far from Quranic teachings. What definition we do have for the death is not the same as Quran says. We think those who talk, those who eat and drink and those who walk are alive but the Quran sometimes calls such people as dead while those who are not near us and we can’t see them, Quran says they are alive.It means death and life is different in Quranic terminology from our own.
Quran says:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ

O you who believe! answer (the call of) Allah and His Apostle when he calls you to that which gives you life; and know that Allah intervenes between man and his heart, and that to Him you shall be gathered.(8:24)
As for grieving and crying on Imam Husain (a.s) we have many authentic Hadith in which it has been mentioned that Holy Prophet cried for Imam Husain many years before his martyrdom.
Also we don’t cry that why Imam died. Of course death is reality of life. We all die even Holy Prophet (pbuh) has died but we cry on oppression and non recognition of his place by the Muslims of his time. They committed a very shameful act with him and with his children and women.
Also there are many more reasons for the crying on Aba Abdillah (a.s). One of the very important reason is by crying we do declare that we are not with the tyrants and we refrain from their brutal acts. Also our hearts becomes soft with crying. That is a necessity of a believer that his heart must be soft. A believer can not be a stone hearted person.
