'O God, carry us in the ships of Thy deliverance, give us to enjoy the pleasure of whispered prayer to Thee, make us drink at the pools of Thy love, let us taste the sweetness of Thy affection and nearness, allow us to struggle in Thee, preoccupy us with obeying Thee, and purify our intentions in devoting works to Thee, for we exist through Thee and belong to Thee, and we have no one to mediate with Thee but Thee!' Imam Sajjad ('A); Sahifa al-Sajjadiyya

An Important Rule Often Neglected 8

A Code of Practice For Muslims in the West : Work & investment » Questions and Answers
Fatawa of Ayatullah al Uzama Syed Ali al-Husaini Seestani

This ruling was initially from the sistani.org Q&A section but because that section is currently not working, we have questioned it's validity. It has however been replaced with the following ruling:

289. Question: A printer in the West prints the menus of restaurants. Such menus include pork. Is this allowed? Is he allowed to print the advertisements for pubs and establishments that provide forbidden entertainment knowing well that his business will be affected, if he does not print these kinds of materials?

Answer: It is not permissible for him to do that even if it affects his business.
