Petition by Mir Kazim the grocer

Mir Kazim the grocer writes to Hujjat al-Islam to tell him that he had to sell his sugar cube shop to provide for his family, that he has lost all his capital, and while he has opened a grocery shop, he is still unable to afford the cost of living, despite having sold his household furnishings, and even his wife’s clothing, three years ago. He has been so desperate that has even pondered killing himself and his family. He requests assistance.
