In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Merciful
I have received the news of the passing of the prominent scholar and thinker, Mr Mohammad Reza Hakimi, with sorrow and grief. Indeed, he was An all-encompassing scholar, an expert literary figure, an innovative thinker, and a justice seeker Islamic Scholar. He spent his life at the service of the high teachings of the Qur'an and Sunnah, without caring about materialistic arrangements, and he left his valuable works for us. He was blessed to be the student of great teachers of divine knowledge and spirituality in the graceful and spiritual environment of the holy city of Mashhad, which made him full of trust in God, obedient to Him, and rich in spirituality. As a result, this personality was able to be steadfast in the rest of his blessed life. I offer my condolences on the painful loss of my close friend to his honourable family of Hakimi and his other family members, especially his noble brother, as well as to all the friends and admirers of the late scholar, and I ask mercy and forgiveness of God for him.
