Question:I've always been fascinated about our marjas (may God prolong their life and keep them safe ameen).
I wanted to know that what is the highest level of sprituality or spiritual power they reach when they become marja? Can they see people's sins as well when they talk/look at them?
Ive heard about ayatullah qazi tabatabai that he was high in spirituality and his spiritual powers and that he had the ability to vanish from one place to another, is it true? Can our marjas comunicate with our beloved imams like imam Reza a.s and other masoom imams? Did Ayatullah Bahjat also had some spiritual powers gifted? Like can they talk and see our present imam mehdi atfs?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Our Marjas no doubt are of high level of spirituality. Their closeness to Allah is unique and always felt by those who visit and sit next to them.
People of high spiritual level are made to see things in their real sense by Allah. This includes an opportunity to see the Imam of our time.
Agha Qazi and Agha Behjati were no doubt of different level.

Question:I am confused about the timing of salah. To join salah how should I do it? So when the azan for zuhr comes then I can pray zuhr and asr? Or can I wait for asr azan and then pray zuhr and asr? Same for maghrib do I pray at maghrib azan or after isha azan both maghrib and isha salah?

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: You pray once the Azan for Zhur is done. You don’t have to wait for Asr. Likewise in the case of Magrib
Question:I would like to know which Surah are good for courage and mental strength.

Ayatollah:Sistani

Answer: Each and every chapter of the Glorious is powerful. My humble advise is try as much as you can to recite Quran every day. Don’t allow a day to pass without going through Qur’an.

If you want to focus on one particular chapter, then I would say chapter al-Kahf

Try to recite with meaning.
