Ayatollah Tabrizi Returns to his Lord

Postby Tayyaba » 21 Nov 2006, 21:20

In His Name the Most High

Verily we are from Allah and to Him do we return.

It is with sadness and grief that the AhlulBayt Islamic Mission offers its condolences to the Imam of our time and the Ummah at large on the demise of His Eminence Grand Ayatollah Mirza Jawad Tabrizi (may Allah elevate his status).

A fountain of education and inspiration amongst Hawza circles, Ayatollah Tabrizi had been suffering from cancer for the later part of his life. Today, he returned to his Lord after a life-long service to the Ummah, leaving behind a vacuum amongst devotees.

Ayatollah Tabrizi was born in 1926 in Tabriz. After finishing secular school and reaching to the ripe age of eighteen, he entered a theological school in his hometown. Within four years of entering the theological school he completed the preliminary and intermediate levels of his seminary studies. In the year 1948, he migrated to Qom and finished other lessons at the intermediate level. In Qom he reached to the Kharij level; thereupon he attended the lectures of the late Ayatollah Hujjat, and Ayatollah Boroujerdi. Aside from studying he also taught the intermediate to advanced courses of Islamic studies in Qom.

Tabrizi then migrated to Najaf and was fortunate enough to benefit from eminent scholars such as the late Ayatollah Sayyid Abul Hadi Shirazi and the late Ayatollah al-Khou'i until he got the degree of Ijtihad. Tabrizi was invited by al-Khou'i to join the Assembly of Consultants, which is an organized group of scholars that responds to the people's questions.

Mirza Jawad stayed in Najaf for about twenty-three years, leaving only in the holidays to do propagation in different countries. He later returned to Iran and began teaching Fiqh (jurisprudence) and Usool (principles) in the Islamic seminary of Qom.

A rare video of the late Marja can be seen on the following link:


In addition, those interested in finding out more about the late Marja can visit his official website: http://www.tabrizi.org

We request all believers to recite Surat Al-Fatiha and to please remember the late Marja in Salaat Al-Wahsha.

Wa Min Allah Al-Tawfiq.

Wasalaamu Alaikum
