One of Shahīd Shahriyārī’s students
October 27th, 2016
Professor Shahriyārī was never late for class. Neither did he ever leave the class early. He was present for all of the class’s time, 99% of which was spent on the academic subject at hand. One day, which was the anniversary of the martyrdom of Her Eminence Lady Fātemat oz-Zahrā , he brought some books along (some of which were in Arabic, as well as Persian ones), and he talked for about a half hour about Her Eminence Lady Fātema . He then broke out weeping and wailing loudly. It was very unexpected, and everyone was taken by surprise [at their professor’s devotion to Her Eminence ].
