Hujjatul Islam Sayyid Musa Sadr

Hujjatul Islam Sayyid Musa Sadr
The Shia's constitute nearly 50% of the Lebanese population. Backward in education and economy, thay had no identity of their own, until Sayyid Musa Sadr came to Surcir in 1379.

Respected scholar, Sayyid 'Abdul Husayn Sharafudden (died 1379) had nominated him as his sucessor, and Ayatullah Sayyid Husain Burojirdi encouraged him to go there.

Sayyid Musa Sadr organised them properly and established numerous educational and vocational institutions for males and females for all age group.

In 1967, he toured seven West African countries to see the conditions of Lebanese Shia's who had settled there. In 1969, with full support of the country's President and the Parliament, he established the Supreme Council of the Shi'ite Muslims of Lebanon.

This Supreme Council gave them confidence and earned for them honour and respect. in 1978, he went to Libya to discuss the Palestinian issue. The moment he set foot on the Libyan soil, he disappeared.

May Allah grant him his freedom.
