Note of the day:

The lecturers and students of the religious seminary can utilize the teachings of Imam al-Hādī (ʿa) in helping the people resolve their various ideological questions and doubts. Unfortunately, Imam al-Hādī (ʿa) has not been remembered like the other Imams (ʿa), nor have his teachings been given the attention that they truly deserve. We must do our best to remedy this shortcoming in ourselves and our institutions.

The Teachings of the Intellectual School Of Thought of Imam al-Baqir (ʿa) From the Viewpoint of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi
Note of the day:

When we examine any book of jurisprudence, beliefs (ʿAqāʾid), the principles of jurisprudence, and ethics, we find that they are full of traditions narrated from Imam al-Bāqir (ʿa) and Imam al-Ṣādiq (ʿa). These two Imams (ʿa) have left behind a massive intellectual and spiritual legacy and the implications of their teachings for the Islamic sciences are enormous.

Temporary Marriage is a Last Resort in Case of Necessity not a Means of Debauchery
His eminence’s open letter to the Shaykh of Al Azhar:

Dear brother! I read your speech on temporary marriage; I directly say that your speech was rather astonishing to me and it left me disgruntled and aggrieved, because I never expected you to use such a language with respect to other Islamic schools of thought. Your words were fierce and provocative, while you used to be a proponent of moderation, fairness, and reliance on compelling logic!

The Statement of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi Concerning the Recent Tragedy in Bahrain
Announced by the office of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi:

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 Solution to the Problem of Terrorism
Stated by his eminence in his meeting with the Hungarian Deputy Prime Minister:

‘I remember two of his remarks from last year’s meeting; the first sentence was that terrorism has turned into an unsolvable problem for Europe’; however, we believe that there are no problems which cannot be solved. In order to eliminate this problem, the following three steps must be taken: first, the ideological roots of terrorism must be destroyed, second, political negotiations must be conducted, and third, those who are guilty of committing acts of terrorism must be brought to justice. Only by following these three guidelines will the problem of terrorism be definitely eliminated.

The United States is forming an Arab-European NATO to combat Islam
His eminence at the beginning of his fiqh course:

The US has planned to play the Muslim countries off against each other and make them destroy each other, just as it previously enticed some Muslim countries to ravage Syria and Yemen. In so doing, it pursues two goals at the same time: it seeks to make the Muslim countries destroy each other with their own hands and, at the same time, it will be selling off its junk arms.
