Biography of Grand Ayatullah Mohsin Al-Hakeem

By: Asiya Syed

Grand Ayatullah Seyyed Mohsin AlHakim was born in 1306 AH in a famous scholarly family. He studied under the tutelage of great Foqaha, like Ayatullah Seyyed Muhammad Kadhim Yazdi, Ayatullah Mirza Hussein Naeeni, Ayatullah Zia Iraqi and others.

After the sad demise of Ayatullah Seyyed Hussein Burujurdi, with whom his family tree shared a common lineage finally reaching Ameerul Mumineen Imam Ali b. Abi Talib (AS), he became a sole Marja.

The Hawza of Najaf al Ashraf grew immensely under his Marjaiyya, boasting nearly an unprecedented figure of 8,000 students. He also instituted several changes in the curriculum of the Hawzas, which have had far reaching effects.

Grand Ayatullah Seyyed Mohsin AlHakim’s famous work in fiqh is 'MUSTAMSAK' which is acknowledged as the most exhaustive and enlightening commentary on the first part of alUrwatul Wuthqa. The style and skill of his reasoning established him among the FUQAHA of the first rank.

He is also well known for his clear fatwa against Communism, declaring it an ideology of kufr and atheism.

He died on Rabiul Awwal 27, 1390 AH in Najaf al Ashraf – the city of knowledge - and was laid to rest in the great and modern library he had established.

Muntakheb Ul  Aqwaal
"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."

(Hazrat Ali Ibne Abi Talib (A.S)
