In the name of Allah, The All-Merciful
Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return. It is with deep sadness and sorrow that we have received the news of the death of his eminence scholar Sayyid Mohammad Baqir Al Muhri, the religious authorities’ representative…As we announce his death (may Allah have mercy on his soul), we remember the attributes of good believers and faithful prophets of Allah and religious scholars who have dedicated their life in the service of their original message.
