TEHRAN (IQNA) – A ceremony was held at the Islamic Center of England to commemorate late Quran teacher Al-Awsi.

 

The ceremony was attended by hundreds of people, including scholars and Al-Awsi’s students.

A number of scholars made speeches in Arabic and English, lauding the character and services of Al-Awsi for the Muslim community.

“Dr. Ali Al-Awsi was not just a colleague; rather his Quranic ethics and science were valuable assets for us and his services to the Quran will not be neglected by God Almighty,” said Hojat-ol-Islam Seyed Hashem Moosavi, head of the Islamic Center of England.

Al-Awsi passed away in London after a long illness in early March.

He was a university of London professor and director of the Center for Southern Iraq Studies.

He was also a Middle East affairs analyst and had studied in religious and cultural fields as well.

Al-Awsi would always support the proximity of Islamic schools of thought and served as secretary of several Islamic unity conferences.

“Allameh Tabatabei’s Method in Al-Mizan Exegesis” is one of his books, in which he has discussed the sources that Allameh Tabatabaei used in writing his Quran interpretation.
