Obituary of His Eminence, Grand Ayatollah, Sheikh Bashir Hussain Al-Najafy on the death of the Grand Ayatollah, Sayed Muhammad Sadiq Al-Husseini Al-Ruhani
In The Name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful
Praise be to Allah, Lord of the worlds, prayers, and peace be upon the best of his creation, Muhammad and his family, and may the curse be upon all of their enemies.
Allah Almighty said: "Those who, when a calamity befalls them, say, “We belong to Allah, and to Him, we shall return.” Allah Almighty is the Most Truthful.
With great sorrow and pain, we received the news of the departure of the great scholar, His Eminence, the Grand Ayatollah, the Grand Ayatollah, Sayed Muhammad Sadiq al-Hussaini al-Ruhani (may his soul be sanctified) from this mortal world after a long life that he spent in studying, teaching, and writing. Allah chose him the last abode to be with his grandfather the Messenger of Allah "may Allah's peace and blessings upon him and his family), the embrace of his grandmother, Al-Zahraa (peace be upon her), and sitting with his great brother, the late teacher, the great religious authority, the Grand Ayatollah, Sayed Muhammad Al-Ruhani (may his secret be sanctified), and for this reason, we offer our deep condolences for this calamity to the Greatest Guardian of God (our souls are for the dust of his sacrifice), and the general seminaries and the followers of Ahlulbait (peace be upon them) everywhere, and his family in particular.
May Allah bless him with the abundance of his mercy, for he is merciful and friendly.
Bashir Hussein Al-Najafy
