Biography of Ayatullah Al-Mar'ashi

By: Mohammad Yazdi

Ayatullah Sayyid Shahabuddin Al-Mar'ashi An-Najafi, born on 20 Safar, 1315, was a model of piety. Whatever came into his hands, he spent it all on his library, Madrasah, students and teachers. His own expenses were kept within the limits of his small personal income. Hajj never became wajib on him.

Containing more than 300,000 books and more than 28,000 rare manuscripts, his library is world famous and an everlasting monument. Ayatullah Al-Mar'ashi An-Najafi's collection was all done single-handedly, sometimes selling his robe to buy a rare book.

Another academic memorial is his "Addenda" to Ihqaqul Haqq of the martyr Nurullah Shustari (Agra). The original work would not take more than 3 volumes. Ayatullah Al-Mar'ashi has extended it to 34 volumes.

He had the unique distinction of having Ijazah of riwayah from nearly 400 mashayekh- Shia, Sunni, Zaidiyah-ranging from Egypt and Jabal 'Amil to India and Indonesia. He was died on 7 Safar, 1411.

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)
