Iranian religious eulogist Mohammad-Ali Karimkhani, who sang a popular song about Imam Reza (PBUH) – the eighth Imam of Shia Muslims – died on Monday at the age of 72.

Karimkhani was born in the city of Narjeh in Qazvin Province in 1950, IFP wrote.

He was shot to fame by the popular song, produced by Iranian musician Arya Aziminejad, that goes ‘Amadam Ey Shah Panaham Bedeh’ – I am here at your shrine, oh King, accept me in your sanctuary.

Karimkhani began singing eulogies in religious gatherings when still a child. Later, he moved to Tehran to further his talent.

His works include an album dubbed ‘Saghi Sarmast,’ also produced by Aziminejad, which is a eulogy of the martyrs of the Karbala incidents 14 centuries ago.

His works are focused on the members of the infallible household of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Several cultural officials and figures expressed their condolences on the demise of the artist.

Iran’s Culture and Islamic Guidance Minister Mohammad-Mehdi Esmaeili, Iran's Music Office Director Mohammad Allahyari, Iranian Parliament speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, and many others sent messages.

The late artist was laid to rest on Tuesday in his hometown Narjeh next to his parents.
