The Haghani School (Circle)

Posted in Uncategorized by fartashphoto on May 5, 2010

Haghani school (also Haqqani) is a Shi’a school of thought in Iran founded by a group of clerics based in the holy city of Qom and headed by Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi, an influential hoze and theologian.

Ayatollah Mohammad Taghi Mesbah Yazdi, the founder of Haghani School, is President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s ideological mentor and spiritual guide.

The Haghani Circle has its origin in the Haghani seminary, founded in 1964, which previously had been called Muntashiriya. After two of the leading members of the circle were assassinated (Ayatollahs Qodousi and Beheshti), the hawza changed its name to Shahidayn Seminary (Martyr Seminary).

“Anti-Baha’i rhetoric has soared since the election last year of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a hardliner alleged to belong to Hojjatieh, an anti-Baha’i organization.

According to journalist Tim Rutten “the Haghani is a particularly aggressive school of radical Shiite Islam which lives in expectation of the imminent coming of the Mahdi, a kind of Islamic messiah, who will bring peace and justice — along with universal Islamic rule — to the entire world. … Members … of this school believe they must act to speed the Mahdi’s coming.”

The school trains clerics with both a traditional and modern curriculum, including a secular education in science, medicine, politics, and Western/non-Islamic philosophy. It was founded by Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi, Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati, Ayatollah Dr. Beheshti, Ayatollah Sadoughi, Ayatollah Taleghani, many famous theologians and influential figures in Iran’s politics after the revolution were associated (as teacher or student) with the Haghani Circle or follows its ideology:

These people, some of them have claimed that they had talked with the imam, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said that he has seen the imam. This is stuff that Khomeini thought was wild and dangerous. These are the people running the country now.

At 4th May, 2010 President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad started his keynote speech to UN Conference on revision of NPT and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons with:

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful

Oh God, hasten the arrival of Imam Al-Mahdi,

Grant him good health and victory,

and make us his followers and those who attest

to his rightfulness.
