Late Prof. Mahdavi Damghani zealously defended AhlulBayt (a.s.) School in the West

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

The demise of the learned scholar and professor in knowledge and ethics, the late Dr. Ahmad Mahdavi Damghani (r.a.) caused great grief. In the many meetings I had with him during the years when I was living in the West, the affection and love of the blessed deceased for the Pure Infallibles (a.s.), especially Imam Reza (a.s.) was completely evident.

The last time that I met him was at the Sorbonne University in Paris in a defense session of doctoral thesis of a Shia researcher, and the late Damghani’s passionate defense of Imam Mahdi (a.s.), and the statement of the noble truths of the teachings of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) School in response to the controversies of one of the French professors at the session, was very valuable and important for me.

The late Damghani, the student of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school, worked very hard in promoting religious values, insisting on the authentic Islamic teachings, defending the Revelation teachings, especially answering the doubts raised by some so-called intellectuals in the scientific societies of the West, and his efforts has been certainly influential and blessed.

I offer my condolences on the loss of that intellectual scholar, to the seminary and academic community of the country, as well as his family and students, and I ask Almighty God for infinite mercy and forgiveness for the deceased.

Reza Ramazani
