بِالحُسَيْنِ عَلَيهِ السَّلأم فِي الدُّنْيا وَالاخِرَةِ۔ يَا أبَا عَبْداللهِ إنِّي أتَقَرَّبُ إلى اللهِ تعالى وَإلَى رَسُولِهِ وَإلى أمِيرِ المُؤْمِنينَ وَإلَى فاطِمَةَ وإلى الحَسَنِ وَإلَيْكَ

Biography
Childhood & Family
Grand Ayatullah Allama Shaikh Muhammad Hussain Najafi was born in Jahanian Shah in district Sargodha (Punjab, Pakistan), in April 1932. He belongs to the Dhakku branch of Jat people.
He had two paternal uncles, both of whom were Shia ulema: Maulana Imam Bakhsh was a religious teacher in Jahanian Shah, while Maulana Sohrab Ali Khan was a reputed alim of Uch Sharif. His father Rana Tajuddin was not an alim, but he had the wish of making his son a great alim. However, he died in 1944 when Ayatullah Najafi was 12 years old, after which the family members persuaded the widow that Ayatullah Najafi should look after the family lands, but she kept up the wish of her dead husband.
Early Education in Pakistan
After secondary school education, he got admission in Madrasah Muhammadia in Jalalpur Nankiana, Sargodha, where one of his prominent teachers was Ayatullah Allama Hussain Bakhsh Najafi (Jarra). In 1947, he studied the courses of Dars-i-Nizami from Ayatullah Allama Muhammad Baqir Naqvi Chakralvi (known as "Allama Baqir Hindi" in Iraq & Iran) in Jhang. Ayatullah Baqir Naqvi had migrated from Iraq to spread Shia formal education in Pakistan. Since Ayatullah Allama Muhammad Yar Shah Najafi, the most prominent disciple of Ayatullah Baqir Naqvi, had moved from his ancestral city Alipur to Jalalpur, Ayatullah Najafi moved to Jalalpur to complete Dars-i-Nizami for the next five years. In 1953, he passed the examination of Molvi Fazil from Punjab University, and moved to Najaf in 1954 for higher education.
Marital Life
Before going to Najaf for higher religious education, he was married to his maternal cousin in 1952. His teacher Ayatullah Yar Shah had links with ulema of Najaf, and he wanted Ayatullah Najafi to get married in a scholarly family of Najaf, but Ayatullah Najafi declined this proposal due to cultural differences. In 1954, his only son Muhammad Sibtain was born. At the age of five, he got seriously ill and died, as Ayatullah Najafi did not have enough money for his treatment; he used to spend his stipend money on household and buying books. After Sibtain's death, Ayatullah Najafi did not have children for next eleven years. He married the daughter of Haji Muhammad Shafi (Faisalabad) in 1970. He had three daughters from this marriage. His first wife died in 1996.

  1. Grand Ayatullah Mohsin Al-Hakim for dars-e-kharij of Fiqh
  2. Grand Ayatullah Syed Javad Tabrizi for dars-e-kharij of Kifaya-tul-Usool

In an interview to the Hawza Elmiye Qom's monthly magazine "Hawza", he was asked:
Hawza: "Hazrat, tell us about your education at Hawza Elmiye Najaf and your teachers there."
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.'"
He wrote the following books during his stay at Najaf:
  1. Isbat ul-Imamat
  2. Tahqeeqat ul-Fariqain fi Hadis as-Saqlain
