Community leaders had a great relation with this late marja and he was the one who inspired the community members to commence the tabligh activities among the indigenous communities in East Africa. He has been always an insightful and inspirational personality for the entire community. Apart from religious guidance, he also motivated the donors to strive for the upliftment on Shias in Africa and Indian sub continent.

He passed away on 27th of Rabi al Awwal in 1390 AH/1970 AD and then buried in his own library in Najaf.

Let us all remember this great personality with a Sura-e-Fateha
