ABWA Official Website – In a message, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani, Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, expressed his condolences on the martyrdom of Ayatollah Abbas Ali Soleimani in the assassination.
The message is as follows:
بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
“Indeed, we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return” (Holy Quran 2:156)
The martyrdom of the serving and respected scholar, Ayatollah Haj Sheikh Abbas Ali Soleimani, caused grief and sorrow. The deceased had valuable services in his career, such as the representation of the Vali-e Faqih (Supreme Leader) in Sistan and Baluchistan and Kashan, and the representative of the people of Sistan and Baluchistan in the Assembly of Leadership Experts.
His services for the dissemination of AhlulBayt (a.s.) teachings, along with his other scientific, social, cultural, and religious services, will definitely be the lasting righteous of this wise and pious scientist.
I offer my condolences for this irreparable loss to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, the Maraje’ (Sources of Emulation), the seminaries, the great clerics and the noble people of Mazandaran province, the honorable bereaved family, and his enthusiasts. I pray for great degrees for the deceased, and patience and reward for his family.
Ayatollah Abbas Ali Soleimani was martyred on Wednesday, April 26, 2023, following an attack by an armed man in a bank in Babolsar.
