In a message, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly expressed his condolences on the demise of Ayatollah Muhammad Hassan Najafi, the Marja Taqlid (source of emulation) of Shiites in Pakistan.
The condolence message is as follows:
“Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” (Holy Quran 2:156)
The passing away of Ayatollah Sheikh Muhammad Hassan Najafi, one of the famous scholars and sources of emulation of Pakistani Shiites, caused a lot of regret and sorrow.
De deceased was one of the commentators of the Holy Quran and the pillars of knowledge and ijtihad (Shiite jurisprudence), as well as one of the affiliates of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, who joined God’s mercy after years of struggle in various religious fields.
His efforts as the head of the “Sultan al-Madaris” seminary contributed to the scientific strengthening of Pakistani Shiites.
I offer my condolences for this loss to Imam Mahdi (a.s.) and all Shiites and lovers of AhlulBayt (a.s.) and enthusiasts of the respected deceased, and seminaries, and ulama of Pakistan, and the respected family of that pious scholar, and for the deceased, and for the deceased, I pray for high degrees from God Almighty, and I wish patience and a great reward for the bereaved family and his students.
