"In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

'We are all from Allah and to Him we shall return.' (Holy Quran)

 

 

The passing of the late Ayatollah Haj Sheikh Nasrallah Shahabadi caused great grief and sorrow.

This pious mujtahid was trained by his respectful father the late Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Shahabadi and prominent Ulama (scholars) such as Imam Khomeini (r.a.) at the Qom and Najaf seminaries and devoted his life to promoting and teaching religious teachings.

I hereby express my condolences to the seminaries, his students and followers, and especially his respectful family."
