In the Name of God
Inna Lillahi wa Inna Ilayhi Raji’un

With great sorrow and regret, we received the sad news of the demise of Allamah Hujjatul-Islam Sheikh Abdul Amir Qablan (Speaker of the Supreme Assembly of the Shia Muslims of Lebanon) who passed away after a life full of sacrifice for religion and homeland and trying to serve the people and meet their needs and reform their affairs.

We offer our sincere condolences to his family, respected scholars, respected Sheikhs and believers in Lebanon, and we ask God Almighty to have mercy on the late deceased and to reunite him with the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and his Ahlul-Bayt (AS) and to grant patience and peace to relatives.
