Hawza: "Hazrat, tell us about your education at Hawza Elmiye Najaf and your teachers
Ustad Najafi: "My stay at Najaf was short ... I completed my education in 6 years
... At Najaf, the total number of courses I used to study and teach daily often
reached up to ten. ... Once my teacher Grand Ayatullah Syed Jawad Tabrizi said to
me in light mood: 'Why do you take so much strain, what is the logic in taking ten
courses daily? Iranians say: 'The climate of Najaf is dry, thus taking one course
in Najaf is not enough, but taking two courses is more than enough.'"
