Ayatollah Sayyid Mirza Ali Tabatabai, also known as Allamah Qazi (1285 - 1366 AH; 1869-1947 CE), was an Iranian Islamic scholar. He was the son of Ayatullah Sayyed Hussein Qazi, and was born in Tabriz, Iran.[1]

He wrote several books, including a partially completed tafsir of the Qur'an, which is a commentary up to verse 91 of Surah al-An’am.[citation needed]

His teachers in Irfan[edit]

His teachers in Shi'i irfan were Ayatollah Ahmed Karbala'i (d. 1913) and Sheikh Mohammad Bahari, who in turn were the students of Mirza Mulla Hussein Qulli Hamadani.[2] Mulla Qulli was himself the student of Haj Sayyed Ali Shustari.[3]
