The Great Allama Mohammad Iqbal

About the author (1991)

A teacher, scholar and writer, Shariati, the son of Muhammad Taqi Shariati-the famous Iranian scholar-had a dynamic influence on the young people of Iran with his free lectures and writings during the 1960s and 1970s. A sociologist, he was educated in Mashhad (Iran) and Paris as well as a student of history and philosophy. He subjected contemporary society to careful examination, using the terms, experiences and concepts found in Islamic philosophy and culture for his analysis. He formulated a coherent Islamic worldview and an ideology of social, political and economical change. His views have contributed much to the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979. He was imprisoned by the Shah regime in the 1970s, and mysteriously died at the age of forty-four on June 19, 1977. His works are constantly reprinted and eagerly studied throughout Iran and the rest of the Muslim world.
