One more grievous news; one great, esteemed Faqeeh. Marajae Taqleed and a Mujahid Scholar, Ayatullah Sayed Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi (r.a) passed away. He was a highly respected personality and lived a blessed life in resistance. He was an intellectual and of advanced nature. He was sick since last year and last week he passed away. May Allah count him with Infallible Imams and his mourners, all Marajae, scholars and Supreme Leader we express our condolence. He was Iranian and born in Iraq. He also has this prestige that he was one of the special and capable students of Ayt Baqir Sadr. He would write the speeches of Ayt Sadr. He was also a visionary, he had full control on Fiqh, Philosophy and expert in economics. His three brothers were martyred by Saddam and for his arrest groups were made but he saved his life and went to Kuwait and from there he came to Iran. He was a resistance person. The Supreme council which was run by Baqir ul Hakim, but Ayt Shahroudi was the head of this supreme council and after a long struggle aginst Saddam. Then he came to Iran after revolution. One big scholarly achievement he has is that he has compiled Dauratul Fiqh e Jafaria (Compilation of Jurisprudence laws). This was something missing, I don’t know how many volumes have been printed after we left from Qom. It is a great collection of all jurists’ visions on Fiqh by topics. On the topics starting from A, there were ten volumes. This kind of great work he did and then he became Chief justice on instruction of Leader. He served the Judiciary for 10 yrs and was the supporter of revolution and from the first rank. This was an honor for him, that at one side in Iraq when most scholars are against revolution and against Wilayat e Faqeeh but he was not like them. He was the chief judiciary and was member of Expedience Council and after death of Rafsanjani, he became the head of Expediency Discernment Council which is an institute in Iran above all organizations. He lived a practical, crusading life and has left this world with a big inheritance for Shia
