Ayatollah Khamenei, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, expressed his condolences to the scholars and the Islamic seminaries in Pakistan on the demise of the honorable scholar Hujjat al-Islam wal-Muslimeen Haj Sheikh Mohsen Ali Najafi.

The text of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution’s message follows:

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

“Indeed we belong to Allah and to Him do we indeed return.”

News of the passing of the honorable scholar who served the people, the late Hujjat al-Islam wal-Muslimeen Haj Sheikh Mohsin Ali Najafi (may God bless him), has brought sorrow and grief.

I send my condolences to the scholars and the Islamic seminaries in Pakistan, to his family and friends, and especially to the honorable Shia population in Baltistan. I ask the Grateful God for abundant forgiveness and an exalted degree for this virtuous scholar. And I ask for patience and reward for his honorable family that he has left behind.

May God’s greetings, mercy, and blessings be upon you.
