In the Name of God, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful
“Inna Lillahi wa Inna Ilayhi Raji’un (We belong to Allah (SWT) and to God shall we return)”
I received the news of the demise of a highly pious Scholar, the Jurisconsult of Ahlul-Bayt (A.S) Ayatollah Seyyed Mohammad Saeed Tabatabaei Hakim (Rezvanollah Alayh) with great sorrow and regret.
Najaf Ashraf seminary lost one of its prominent scholars and jurisconsult; One who devoted himself to supporting religion and devoted his blessed life to serving science and the people, and left a great scientific legacy, which has a high status.
I offer my sincere condolences to Imam Al-Zaman (A.J), the seminaries and the family of the late Scholar, especially the honorable brothers and his venerable children, and all the believers, and I ask God Almighty to grant him the highest ranks and to reunite him with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his Ahlul-Bayt (A.S) and to provide patience for his family and lovers.
