In the first part (over in 94th No.), regarding "the area of the shrine from Shiite traditions and jurists", and '' Sunni scholars explain about the shrine area" were discussed in detail.
The second part of this article is on the "symptoms and signs"; the signs of four limits including east, north, west and south.
The eastern limit with one hundred and ten signs, the northern limit has five hundred and ninety-four, which has the most signs and symptoms, Ninety-eight for the west and one hundred and sixty eight for the south.

A jurisprudential analysis of the client (Manoub 'anh) requirements
Seyyed Taghi Waredi
The client (Manoub 'anh), such as the vice (Na'ib), mush have special requirements and conditions in Hajj and Umrah. Some of the discussed requirements among Shi'a jurists include: conditioning death of manoub 'anh, being excused (manoub 'anh), maturity of manoub 'anh and lack of madness. Concerning the conditioning death of manoub 'anh in the Hajj, the great jurists are unanimous. Making hajj on behalf of an alive or healthy person that is able to do hajj (Mobasheri hajj) is not permissible unless he fails or is excused from performing Hajj by himself. But in the recommended Hajj and Umrah such conditions are not necessary.About stipulating maturity of manoub 'anh such condition is not requiredbut on behalf of infants, the discerning infants and non-discerning infants should be differed. Making hajj on behalf is correct for the fromer one and not for the latter. Concerning the rationality of Manoub 'anh should be distinguished between permanent and periodic insanity. In the sense that hajj on behalf is not correct for the permanent madness. But on periodic insanity if during the wellness time the hajj became obligatory upon him taking a na'ib is correct and even obligatory.
Key words: Manoub 'anh, Hajj, 'Umrah, Conditions, Niyabat, Death, Being Excused, Maturity and Rationality.
Qarn al-Manazil and Yalamlam
Two near Meeqaat to Makkah
Rouzbeh Barkat Rezaei
Afaqi people in addition to the Meeqaats of Shajarah, Juhfa and Aqiq can wear Ihram from the Meeqaats of Qarn al-Manazil and Yalamlam. Since the two oldest and closest Meeqaats to Mecca, is rarely discussed, this article is assigned to it. What is considerable in the subjectology of the two meeqaat is that, "The Sail al-Kebir" is located in Qarn al-Manazil area but assuming Qarn al-Manazil as the "valley of Muharram" is not provable. In the course of Yemen to Mecca, Yalamlam is on the way of Tehama and two other ways end to Qarn al-Manazil.
From the predicate, the meeqaat of the two, citing multiple Shiite and Sunni narratives and is consensus and the opposing traditions are not acceptable.
Notably, during the Hajj season, the servants of the caravan who entered dignified Makkah for the convoy affairs with the intention of 'Umrah Mufradah, and a few days before the start of hajj want to wear Ihram for pilgrimage, wearing ihram from the two meeqaats because of their proximity to Mecca is recommended.
Key Words: Ihram, Meeqaat, Makkah, Qarn al-Manazil, Yalamlam.
Reviewing the goals and motives of Masjid al-Haraam occupation
In the year 1400 AH.
On the first day of Muharram in the year 1400 AH, Masjid al-Haram was occupied by a group headed by Al- Juhayman Outaibi. They pledge allegiance to the person whom is called as promised Mahdi. Confrontation with the armed government leads to the massive killing and abundant bloodshed. After a week of fighting, the Saudi government fails and inevitably, seeks help from Western countries. Finally, after two weeks, the fire appears to be put out but the dimensions, deep roots and intensity of its influence in the community pretty soon becomes clear. The incident caused a major change in policy and governance is the dynasty of Saud. On the other hand, the movement also became an inspiration for the Salafist-Jihadi currents and Juhayman as a role model and hero was praised and adhered. The present article seeks to examine the motivation and aims of Juhayman his companions' uprising. Some believe that the movement is left-style revolution. Still some others consider restricting them to swear allegiance to the Mahdi. The third idea introduced it as a coup to assassinate leaders of the Saud dynasty. From Juhayman words and also from works of his like-minded friends light up the realize of fulfilling the apocalyptic traditions in which both pledging allegiance to the Mahdi and construction of corruption and innovations occur. Here are some other points that will be elaborated.

The Sirah of Ahl al-Bayt (a.s) in creating unity among Muslims
Seyyed Hassan Fallahian
Sacred religion of Islam to guide humankind to the path of growth and perfection developed a complete solution, paid special attention to all the human needs and dimensions, and knew the way to achieving excellence in public life. . One of the Muslim community needs is unity and integrity, which plays a very important and decisive role in the social life of Muslims. . Performing divine religion and its light sentences, which guarantees social order and security, justice and solidarity depends on eliminating conflicts and strife in religion because the ominous phenomenon of dispute and dissension endangers the interests and expediency of the Islamic Ummah and will cause a weakness and defeat. Ahlul Bayt (a.s) were always the founders and proclaimers of Unity and have underlined in their conversation and sirah on this important issue. Some examples, such as: respect for the audience sanctities, tolerance of opponent beliefs, solving the legal difficulties and problems of others can be observed and traced. Our main question in this article is that "what was Ahl al-Bayt sirah and method in creating unity among Muslims?"
The proposed assumption of the research is that Imams (a.s) depending on the positions and social conditions were in the wake of creating unity among Muslims and insisting the brotherhood and unity of the Islamic Ummah. When we probe on Imam Ali's (a.s) life, his noble character, to maintain unity and avoid divisions within the Muslim community waived his right and suffered 25 years of retreat and isolation. This behavior is indicative of the importance of unity and solidarity of Muslims.
