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).
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
