In the Name of Allah, the All-Beneficent, the All-Merciful.
May Allah bless Muhammad and his Family and damn their enemies.

Sheikh al-Habib was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of the great scholar and Hussaini orator, Sayed Muhamed Baqir al-Fali (may Allah be pleased with him), a man who dedicated his entire life to the service of Imam Hussain and Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them).

Sheikh al-Habib highlighted some of the great virtues of the man we had lost by stating: ‘Sayed al-Fali was a pure and faithful voice of the Shi’a; a loyal advocate of the Prophet and his Holy Household (peace be upon them). He was not corrupted by vile Batrisim or Mysticism – as was the case with many others in his position – nor did he support self-serving deviant groups and parties. He was a man who, above all, valued integrity. He was wholly uninterested with his own benefit, not once using his position and power for worldly gains. As a reward for his sincerity Allah gave him success, transforming him into a star that shines brightly in the sky – a symbol of guidance and knowledge, an orator like no other.’

Indeed, Allah gifted him with eloquence and an exceptional ability to convey his message, to the extent that his voice left a long-lasting effect on the hearts of his listeners. His role in safeguarding generations from falling victim to the machinations of the devil or corrupt ideologies and deviant groups cannot be understated. It is no surprise then that Allah took his soul in the days that mark the martyrdom of his mother, Lady al-Zahra (peace be upon her), who he felt the most pain for while reciting its events upon the pulpit by electing not to wear his ‘Amama (turban) to showcase the extent of the tragedy. I fondly remember the private talks we used to have in which he expressed profound concern with the state of our nation, and his utter determination to confront the oppressors despite all the harm that he received at their hands. May Allah’s boundless mercy encompass him, and may He grant him a high position in the afterlife alongside his purified fathers, Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them).’

Sheikh al-Habib wishes to also extend his condolences to the Grand Religious Authority, al-Marji’ Sayid Sadiq al-Shirazi, and to the bereaved family of Sayid al-Fali, and to our schools of faith, and all believers worldwide. May Allah protect them all.

We belong to Allah and to Him we will return.
