In Pictures: Commemoration Ceremony of Late Ayatollah Mohaqiq Damad

A group of Shia Scholars have held a conference in Allama Tabatabaei University, Qom, to commemorate the late Ayatollah Sayyid Muhammad Mohaqiq Damad.

Late Ayatollah Sayyid Muḥammad Moḥaqqiq Dāmād (b.1325/1907 – d.1388/1969) was a Shi’a jurist, a scholar in usul al-fiqh, and a teacher in Seminary of Qom. Most clerics who were involved in the Islamic Revolution and who later took official positions in the Islamic Republic of Iran were his students. He was the son-in-law of ‘Abd al-Karim Ha’iri Yazdi, the founder of Seminary of Qom, therefore he was given the title Damad (which means son-in-law). Sayyid Ali and Sayyid Mustafa Mohaqqiq Damad are his sons.
