The Statement of Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi: The Dangerous Plots of the US and the Ignominy of its Allies
Announced by his eminence’s office:

The US administration’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem Al Quds as the capital of Israel is a violation of the UN Security Council resolutions and a violation of all international laws about the Palestinian city. His decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem Al Quds in six months will cause tremendous and worldwide hatred against the US; all the Muslims of the world and many free-spirited nations and politicians have strongly condemned the decision.

The Love for the Prophet’s Ahl-al-Bayt is What Can Unify all Muslims/the Eradication of Daesh was the Result of the Unity of Muslims/the Muslim Ummah must be Cautious about the Plots of the Enemies in the Future
His eminence’s meeting with some of the participants of the Conference on the “Muhibbin (Lovers) of the Ahl-al-Bayt (ʿa)”

In order for the unity of Muslims to be strong, all Muslim schools must respect each other’s sanctities. We, as Muslims, will not allow Shias to insult what Sunnis hold sacred and we will not allow Sunnis to insult what Shias hold sacred; no Muslim school of thought is allowed to insult the sanctities of other schools.

The Speech of Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi about the Sedition of Daesh at the Beginning of his Advanced Fiqh Course
His eminence at the beginning of his advanced Fiqh course:

At the beginning of the month of Rabiʿ Al Awwal, we heard the happy news that the power of the Daesh terrorist group has been destroyed and it no longer holds any major cities to rule. This is particularly promising as no terrorist group in the history of the world has been as brutal and savage as the Daesh terrorists

A Practical Strategy towards Confronting the Arrogant Super-Powers from the Perspective of Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi
Note of the day:

We must emphasize the important, strategic fact that we have never submitted to the pressures exerted upon us by the arrogant superpowers, nor will we submit to them in the future. Through the blessings of the Islamic Revolution, the Islamic Republic of Iran has been transformed in to an example of what is possible. Other nations, including those of Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, as well as many others have in turn rejected the pressures of the Global superpowers and they have decided to stand up to America and the Zionist Regime.

Announced in his eminence’s advanced Fiqh course:

Is it not the duty of Muslim countries to voice their outrage at these crimes? Is it not time for the so-called Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which consists of nearly 60 Muslim countries, to hold an emergency special session in order to help these innocent people?

A Reflection on the Influential Teachings of Imam al-Hādī (ʿa) from the Viewpoint of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi
Birthday Anniversary of al-Imam al-Hādī (ʿa)

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- Bāqir (ʿa) From the Viewpoint of Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi
Martyrdom Anniversary of al-Imam al- Bāqir (ʿa)

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.

Note of the day:

The Mina calamity was a tragedy which caused the deaths of thousands of Ḥajj pilgrims from many different Islamic countries, including more than 460 Iranian pilgrims. This tragedy showed the depths of the incompetence and lack of management of the Wahhabi led Saudi government. This tragedy also showed us how necessary it is to change the management in charge of the Two Holy Shrines.

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 lofty rank of the Lady Maʿṣūmah in the world of the Unseen is not only because of her being the child of Imam Mūsā ibn Jaʿfar (ʿa) and the sister of Imam al-Riḍā (ʿa); it is also related to her own characteristics and spiritual greatness.
