By: Ismail Zabeeh

HOLY CITY OF KARBALA, Iraq: On Thursday May 12, 2011, Jamadi Al-aakherah 8, deceased Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Kadhim Al-Qazwini, son-in-law of late Ayatollah Sayyed Meerza Mehdi Al-Husseini Ash-Shirazi, was laid to rest in the Shiraziah tomb in the holy Husseini shrine compound in the holy city of Karbala.

Large number of clerics, scholars, Husseini speakers, religious scholars and mo’minin attended the funeral.

The funeral began from the tomb of Al-Allamah Ahmed bin Fahd Al-Hilli marched towards the holy shrine of Abi’l Fadhl Al-Abbas (a.s.) where holy ziyarah was recited then the funeral culminated at the holy hrine of Al-Imam Al-Hussein (a.s.) where he was buried.

Sayyed Al-Qazwini was born in the holy city of Karbala, completed his religious education in Karbala hauzah. He wrote many books; a series of unique books titled ‘minn al-mahd eelal lahd’ about the life of Ahlil Bayt (a.s.), and similarly a writing ‘Al-Imam As-Sadeq (a.s.) consisting of 50 volumes.

He had died 17 years ago on 15 Jamadi Al-Aakherah, was buried amanatan (as a trust) in husseiniyah az-Zaynabiyah for people of Karbala in the holy city of Qom implementing his wasiyah (will) to transfer his dead body after it to holy Karbala.

Then after 17 years have been passed, on Jamadi Al-Aakherah 5, his dead body was taken out from the grave to transfer to holy Karbala.

Surprisingly, during the taking out process his dead body was safe and fresh as if he was died right now; even his coffin cloth was undamaged. Similarly the book ‘Fatimah toz Zahra minn al mahd eelal lahd’ which was put on his chest according to his will while he was buried in the grave, was safe and secure.

When Ayatollah Sayyed Muhammad Sadeq Ash-Shirazi attended his funeral he said: the reason that the body of Sayyed Al-Qazwini remained safe and secure even after 17 years is that he was mottaqi (one who preserves his self), he spent his life in the way of Allah and fourteen infallibles from the progeny of Prophet Mohammad (s).


  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
