Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ayatollah Mahmoud Taleghani (1911 - September 9, 1979) was an Iranian theologian, humanist, Muslim reformer, democracy advocate and a senior Shi'a cleric of Iran. Taleghani was a contemporary of the Iranian Revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and a leader in his own right of Iran's Shi'a resistance movement against the pro-western, secularist Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi. A founding member of the Freedom Movement of Iran, he has been described as a representative of the tendency of many "Shia clerics to blend Shia with Marxist ideals in order to compete with leftist movements for youthful supporters" during the 1960s and 1970s.His "greatest influence" has been said to have been in "his teaching of Quranic exegesis," as many later revolutionaries were his students.show more
