Martyr Murtaza Mutahhari ranks among one of the most dynamic and effective scholars of recent times. He was born in 1920 in Fariman, one of the cities of the Khurasan province in Iran. He studied under great masters of his time like the eminent scholar Allama Tabatabai and the late leader of Islamic revolution - Imam Khomeini. He was over 23 seminal works to his credit, and ranks among one of the great Muslim revolutionaryintellectuals of his time. The activities of this scholar were intolerable for the followers of the atheistic schools and they, therefore, decided to remove him from the scene by terroristic methods. Eventually they assassinated him on May 1 , 1979. His martyrdom was indeed a great tragedy to the intellectual world.
