Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has extended condolences to the people and government of Kuwait over the demise of prominent Shiite Muslim cleric Ayatollah Seyyed Muhammad Baqir al-Musawi al-Muhri.
In a message addressed to Secretary General of the National Islamic Alliance Sheikh Hussain al-Ma’touq on Thursday, Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to Muhri’s constant endeavors to promote Islamic teachings and offered Iran’s deepest sympathy to the late cleric’s bereaved family, his adherents as well as the Kuwaiti nation.
The Leader also prayed for the departed soul to rest in peace.
Muhri, a renowned Shiite Muslim cleric and member of the Ahlulbayt World Assembly, passed away on Saturday after suffering a heart attack at the age of 66.
He had studied in seminaries in the holy Iraqi city of Najaf under Iranian-born Grand Ayatollah Abul-Qassim Khoei and Mohammad Baqir al-Sadr.
