In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
The demise of the Mujahid and pioneer scholar Ayatollah Haj Sheikh Mohammad Ali Feyz Lahiji Gilani caused grief and regret.
He was one of the students and companions of Imam Khomeini and had benefited greatly from the classes of other grand scholars such as Ayatollah Borujerdi, Ayatollah Bahjat, Martyr Motahhari and Martyr Ayatollah Sadoughi.
Among the revolutionary services of the deceased are the two terms representation of the people of Gilan in the Assembly of Experts, membership in the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom, the presidency of the Court of Administrative Justice and the representation of Imam Khomeini at Al-Zahra (a.s.) University.
I offer my condolences for the loss of this benefactor cleric to Imam Mahdi (a.s.) and also to the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Grand Ayatollah Khamenei, Grand Sources of Emulation, Ulama and martyr-nurturing people of Gilan province, his enthusiasts and students and the honorable family, and from God, for the deceased I ask for the exaltation, and for his family and relatives, I ask for patience.
