إِنَّا لِلَّهِ وَإِنَّا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعُونَ
We send our heartiest condolences to our holy 12th Imam (ATF) and the entire Muslim Ummah, on the sad demise of Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Sadiq al-Rouhani (1926 – 2022), aged 96.
Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Sadiq al-Rouhani was a senior student of Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Abul-Qasim al-Khoei, and was a distinguished theologian and jurist based in Qum, Iran.
Among the great books written by Ayatullah Rouhani, his most renowned work, entitled ‘Fiqh al-Sadiq’ is a multi-volume encyclopaedia on Islamic jurisprudence and legal theory. In a letter of condolence hand-written by Grand Ayatullah Sayyid ‘Ali al-Sistani, he was described as a ‘noble individual’ whose ‘valuable’ intellectual legacy ought to be compensated by students and scholars of the sacred Islamic sciences.
The Muslim Ummah has once again lost a great scholar. Let us remember Ayatullah Rouhani and all our deceased scholars with a Suratul Fatiha.
