Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Grand Ayatollah Sheikh Basheer Hussain Najafi(born 1942) is one of the six Grand Ayatollahs in Iraq. He was born in Jalandhar, a city in then British India. After the division of British India in 1947, his family moved to Pakistan and settled in the city of Gujranwala. In Gujranwala he had his initial education in religion. He was then able to move to Iraq for studies in the early 1960s. He is one of many individuals from the Indian Subcontinent to have ever been elevated to the highest rank of Grand Ayatollah in Shia Islam. He was one year junior to Grand Ayatollah Ali Sistani. Al Najafi could be a possible successor to Sistani, who has undergone two heart bypass surgeries in London in less than five years, if he passes away.
