Clapping by theology students at birthday ceremonies for Imams (AS) / the Grand Ayatollah Rouhani’s answer

SHARE

SHAFAQNA – The Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Sadeq Rouhani answered a question about clapping at birthday ceremonies for Imams (AS).

Question: What is the ruling about clapping at birthday ceremonies for Imams (AS) and especially in mid-Shaaban ceremony by theology students and clergymen?

The Grand Ayatollah Rouhani: There is no problem in clapping on its own without adding other acts to it; but if it is done in a way that is mixed with other wrong-doings, or insult to clergymen, it is not allowed; and there is no difference between clergyman and non-clergyman (regarding this matter).
