‏We have received with deep sorrow the news of the death of His Eminence, Sayyid Ali Abdul Hakim al-Safi, Deputy of the Supreme Religious Authority, in Basra Governorate and member of the Iraqi Constitution Drafting Committee, who was distinguished by his conscious Islamic speech, as well as his prominent role in drafting the Iraqi constitution during his membership in the National Assembly and the Constitution Writing Committee.
‏With this great pain, we offer our sincere condolences and sympathy to the family of the deceased, the religious authority, all his lovers and the honorable people of Basra, asking Allah Almighty to grant mercy and forgiveness to him.
