In the Name of God

The sad news of the death of honorable brother, Dr. Syed Ali Reza Naqvi, a professor of Persian language, a well-known translator and prominent academic figure in Pakistan, who was associated with the Ahlulbayt World Assembly, was a source of regret and grief.
Our sorrow on this sad occasion was doubled due to the continuous and effective relationship of this prominent Pakistani professor with cultural and academic centers in our country, in addition to spending ten years of his life in the Islamic Republic of Iran with the aim of educating and promoting the teachings of the holy Qur'an and the Ahlulbayt as well as Islamic and Iranian civilization which resulted in the production of numerous books and translations to promulgatepure Mohammedan Islam throughout the world.
Dozens of valuable books and essays written by this leading scholar highlight his high academic status. Some outstanding examples among his works include: translation of Tahrir al-Wassilahby Imam Khomeini and Our Economy by Shahid Ayatollah Muhammad BaqirAl-Sadr into English; translation of Al-Athaaral-Baaqiya(The Remaining Signs of Past Centuriesby AbuRayhanBiruni on the development of the Islamic Iranian culture) and the draft of I.R.Iran’s Constitution into Urdu; and most importantly, a 4-volume preciousbookin English entitled Shia Law with the subject of reviewing 1000 years of Shiite Jurisprudence from Sheikh Mufidto Imam Khomeini(published by the Ahlulbayt World Assembly).
The Ahlulbayt World Assembly, on behalf of all its members and representatives worldwide, extends its sincere condolences tothehonorable family of the late Dr. Naqvi and all followers of the Ahlulbayt in Pakistan and Indian Subcontinent.
We further beseech Almighty God to grace his soul with His mercy and elevate his status in the hereafter and to bestow patience and rewards on his family members and pupils.
