Death of an Aalim is Death of Aalam
The Africa Federation Secretariat has received with deep sorrow the sad news of the passing away of Ayatullah Sayyid Muhammad Saeed Al Hakeem in Najaf on Friday 3rd September 2021 (25th Muharram 1443).
Marhum was one of the four grand Maraje in Najaf and one of the most senior clerics in Iraq after our Marja-e-Taqleed Ayatullah al Uzmah al Seyed Ali al Husseini al Seestani. He was the grandnephew of Marhum Ayatullah Sayyid Muhsin al Hakeem.
We convey our condolences to our Living Imam (ATFS), the Marja-e-Taqleed, Ulema-e-Deen, his family and the Shia Community on this bereavement.
May Allah (S.W.T) elevate the status of Marhum Ayatullah Sayyid Muhammad Saeed Al Hakeem and place his soul amongst the proximity of the Chaharda Masumeen (‘A)
Please remember Marhum with Sura-e-Fateha.
