Liaison office of Grand Ayatullah Sayyid Ali Al Sistani (L.M.H.L) in London, Europe, North and South America.
Acting on the advice of medical doctors, Grand Ayatullah Seestani (long may he live) has suddenly cancelled all his daily engagements in Najaf. The medical team following His Eminence’s health said that due to his heart condition he needs to rest. They fear that he may not receive the appropriate medical treatment under the present circumstances. We therefore request all Momineen to pray for H. E’s speedy recovery.
