The Day of Ghadir
In the first sermon, His Eminence, Sayyed Ali
Fadlullah, talked about the day of Ghadir. He explained
its significance and explained the lessons one can
learn from it. He maintained that the most prominent
lesson we can learn is to rely on competence and
give the jobs to those who are qualified for them.
In the second sermon, His Eminence, Sayyed Ali Fadlullah,
considered that it is shameful to be ungrateful
to those who have given everything to defend this
country, at a time they should be appreciated. As
for the kidnapped soldiers, the Sayyed called on
the Lebanese government to find the solution to
set them free. He also called on their families
not to let their pains and sorrows be a means that
enable the kidnappers to increase their pressure
on the Lebanese state, especially that they are
soldiers who knew beforehand that they might face
threats and dangers....

Money in return of working in the religious
field: permissible or not?
Is it permissible to earn money in return of
working in the religious field and performing religious
duties, such as pilgrimage, fasting, paying Khums
and other acts on behalf of others? This question
might cross the mind of many people who would like
to know the answer to it. Looking into the matter
from a Shariah-based perspective...
Historical information indicates that Hijab existed
before religions, and in the Code of Hammurabi,
the first king of Babylon. But it was prohibited
for bondmaids and restricted only to honorable women.
And reading the religious texts before Islam (the
Torah and the Bible), you notice indications about

and politics is our religion", many of our youth

men; for one of them We made two gardens of grape vines,
and in the midst of them We made cornfield...
