QUESTION:

  Is Namaz-e-Ayaat obligatory for the present sighting of the Comet 
  Hyakutake? Please reply according to the Risala of  Ayatullah Sistani.
 
 
 ANSWER:

 Namaz-e Ayaat becomes obligatory for:

          (a) solar and lunar eclipse
          (b) earth-quake
          (c) any natural occuring in the space or on the earth which normally
              creates fear in people.

 The condition of fear does not apply to items (a) and (b).  See Minhajus
 Salihiyn of Ayatullah Sistani, vol. 1, p. 239.

 In the light of the condition of fear, I do NOT think that namaz-e ayat
 would become wajib for sighting of the Comet Hyakutake.

 Yours in Islam,

 Sayyid M. Rizvi
 
PREVIOUS VERSION:
Dear Brothers in Islam.  

The above answer IS correct.  The previous version posted on the abdg-a read 
that 
" In the light of the condition of fear, I DO think that namaz-e ayat would 
become 
wajib for sighting of the Comet Hyakutake."

After having spoken to Maulana Rizvi, he says that  those who did pray the 
namaz-e ayat "Do not worry, you will be rewarded for your prayers!"
