Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Muhammad al-Tijani al-Samawi (born 2 February 1943 in Gafsa, Tunisia) is a Tunisian Muslim scholar, academic and theologian. Mohammad al-Tijani al-Samawi was a Tunisian student who, upon making Hajj, was influenced by orthodox Saudi teachings, against saint veneration and tomb visitation, which were central to the North African Sufi tradition. A few years later, al-Samawi was in Egypt on an Islamic tour of the Middle East and ran into an Iraqi student, Mun'im, who invited him to Iraq to see Shia Islam with his own eyes, and forget what he had heard of them through reputations. Al-Samawi spent several weeks with Mun'im and visited Baghdad, and Najaf, and met with several leading Shi'a scholars, including Grand Ayatollah Abul-Qassim Khoei (al-Khu'i), Sayyid Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr (Grand Ayatollah to-be) and Allameh Tabatabaei, who spent hours teaching him about Shia Islam. Eventually, he considered himself converted to the Shi'i school of thought.show more
