Among the other prominent dimensions in the spiritual personality of Ayatollah Bahjat are humility, running away from fame and opposing inclinations. He did not allow the publication of his edicts till after the demise of all past authorities who were older than him and even his fellows who used to study with him although he is considered as one of the famous men of fiqh and ijtihad and one of the prominent scholars of the Islamic Seminary of Qom. Despite all of this, he did not permit the publication of his edicts except after the scholars had insisted on it. He also did not permit the use of the ways allowed by the Sharia for the publication of his scholarly dissertation (risala), always emphasizing to the orators at the majalis which he held that they should not mention his name.
I was quite surprised at this answer, for if the life of this man was desirous of the world, what about us?!"
This indicates his God-fearing nature, piety and the opposing of his desires. Hujjatul-Isam Qods says the following about his humbleness: "One day, I and my guest, the late Hujjatul-Islam Nasr-Allah Lahuti, visited Ayatollah Bahjat. My guest said to him, 'I have heard someone criticizing you in the city of Mashhad during my visit of that city, and I felt very angry about it.' Ayatollah Bahjat said, 'It has been cited in our narratives the following: 'They charged a scholar who desired the world,'' so I was quite surprised at this answer, for if the life of this man was desirous of the world, what about us?!"
