Ayatullah Al-Mirza Jawad Al-Tabrizi

Ayatullah al-Uzma al-Hajj as-Shaykh Mirza Jawad at-Tabrizi was born in 1926 in the city of Tabriz, Iran. After finishing his secular studies, and reaching the age of eighteen, he entered a theological school in his hometown.

Within four years after entering, he managed to complete the preliminary and intermediate levels of his Islamic studies. In the year 1948, he migrated to Qum, Iran and finished other lessons at the intermediate level. In Qum he reached the Kharij level where he attended the lectures of the late Ayatullah al-Hujjat, and Ayatullah al-'Uzma al-Hajj as-Sayyid Muhammad Hussein Burujerdi. Asides from studying, he also taught the intermediate to advanced courses of Islamic studies in Qum.

Ayatullah Mirza Jawad al-Tabrizi then migrated to Najaf al-Ashraf and was fortunate enough to benefit from eminent scholars such as the late Ayatullah al-Sayyid Abu al-Hadi ash-Shirazi, and the late Ayatullah al-'Uzma al-Hajj as-Sayyid Abu al-Qasim al-Khu'i, where he reached the level of Ijtihad.

Ayatullah al-Tabrizi was invited by Ayatullah al-'Uzma al-Hajj as-Sayyid Abu al-Qasim al-Khu'i to join the Assembly of Consultants, which was an organized group of scholars that responded to the questions of the people.

Ayatullah al-Tabrizi stayed in the holy city of Najaf for about 23 years, leaving only in the holidays for propagation of Islam in different countries. He later returned to Iran and began teaching Fiqh (Jurisprudence) and Usul Al-Fiqh (Principles of Jurisprudence) in the Islamic Seminary of Qum.

He passed away in 2007 & is buried near Shrine of Lady Masuma a.s in Qum, Iran.
