Al-Shahid al-Thani Zayn al-Din al-Jub’i al-‘Amili
By Ali Sadiqi (Ghulami)
Translated from Arabic by Hasan M. Al-Najafi
Al-Shahid’s character was prominent in all these pivots, being established on balanced pillars, rendering him a centre of attraction, respect and veneration of people everywhere. This was due to the fact that al-Shahid attained a high degree of zuhd (asceticism), knowledge and credibility, that made some magnates believe in his reaching the level of infallibility.
