We belong to Allah and to Him we will return
The news of the passing away of the scholar Hujjat al-Islam Haj Sheikh Mohsen Ali Najafi, was a source of sadness and sorrow. That honorable man spent many years of his life in promoting the religion and serving the believers, and by establishing and managing several scientific and educational centers, he greatly contributed to the Muslim community in Pakistan.
I offer my condolences to all Muslim men and women in Pakistan, especially his relatives and those who are followers of that high-ranking cleric.
There is no power and no strength except with Allah.
Ali al-Hosseini al-Sistani
