Pearl of Wisdom

was asked about the extent of doubt that a particular man was having as to how many units of prayer he had performed, such that he neither knew how many he had performed, nor how many he had left. He replied, 'He should repeat it'. So we asked him, 'But this state is so excessive in him that every time he repeats [his prayer] he doubts again.' He said, 'Then he should continue regardless of his doubt.' Then he said, 'Do not accustom the malignant [part] of yourselves to the breaking of the prayer lest you arouse further greed in it, for verily Satan is malignant and gets habituated to whatever he is made accustomed to. So you should ignore that insinuation [and continue], and you should not break your prayers often, and if you do this [i.e. ignore the doubt] often enough, the doubt will not resurface.' Zurara narrated: Then he (AS) said, 'Verily the malignant wants to be obeyed, so when it is disobeyed, it does not return to you.'

Question : #530 Category: Food & Drinks
Subject: fertilized fruits and veges
Question: Is there a problem eating vegetables grown without chemical fertilizer (Biological label).
It means that generally the chemicals are replaced by a dryed blood coumpound which is used as a fertilizer. The powdered blood is sprinkled on the floor some month before the crop and is made of animal blood (of course not slaughtered islamically and of course may contain pig blood also). Please can you give me the rulings about this matter ?

I am a follower of Seyyed Sistani (may he live long).
Answer: There is no harm in eating vegetables or fruits grown in the method you described. Fertilizers have generally been known to contain animal refuse, but the process of fertilizing does not necessarily transfer the najasat.
