Ayatollah Mohammad Hassan Akhtari

Honorable Chairman of the Supreme Council of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly

 Peace be upon you for your patience

The demise of the divine scholar, respected intellectual and serving cleric, the father of a martyr, Ayatollah Haj Sheikh Abbas Ali Akhtari caused sorrow and regret.

That Mujahid scholar adorned his knowledge with action and therefore, he was one of the pioneers of the Islamic movement of the Iranian people under the leadership of Imam Khomeini (r.a.).

The tireless efforts of Ayatollah Abbas Ali Akhtari after the victory of the Islamic Revolution, in the Islamic Consultative Assembly, the Council of Leadership Experts, the Policy Making Council for the Friday Prayers Imams, the Supreme Court, the mosque and as the Imam of Friday prayers, Housing Foundation of Islamic Revolution etc., were all in the way of service to the oppressed people and the holy system of the Islamic Republic.

Also, in addition to teaching in the seminary and university, the late Ayatollah Abbas Ali Akhtari had valuable written works explaining the teachings of the Quran and AhlulBayt (a.s.), which, along with his social services, will be the remnants of righteousness for the deceased.

For this irreparable loss, I offer my condolences to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the seminaries, the martyr-nurturing people of Sorkheh and Semnan, his students and enthusiasts, and to you and the respected Akhtari family.

For the deceased and his martyred son, I pray to Almighty God for elevating spiritual rank and reunion with God’s saints, and for the family members and relatives I pray for patience and spiritual rewards,

وإنا لله وإنا إلیه راجعون

“Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” (Holy Quran 2:156)
