Sadiq Shirazi was born in the holy city of Karbala, Iraq, in 20.12.1360 H (Islamic calendar). He belonged to a distin

guished family rooted in Islamic sciences and literature. The Shirazi family has produced many scholars and Marja’s (The Marja of Taqleed are clerics that have the authority to declare fatwas and decrees into all matters of Islamic jurisprudence. Only several exist at any given time) as well as leaders. Two of the best-known leaders are Grand Ayatollah Mirza Hassan Shirazi (father of Sayed Sadiq and Mohammed Shirazi), leader of the constitutional, also known as the Tobacco Movement in Iran, and Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Taqi Shirazi(?), leader of the 1920 revolution in Iraq, which liberated Iraq from colonial powers. The Shirazi’s father, the late Grand Ayatollah Mehdi Shirazi, had been

a famous and a highly respected scholar and the Marja’ of his time. They were descendants of the Islamic prophet Muhammad as a Sayyid. Grand Ayatollah Imam Muhammad Al-Shirazi died in 2001. Sadiq Shirazi vowed to totally dedicate himself to seeking knowledge, and adhere in all aspects of life to piety and good deed, serving the cause of Ahl-ul-Bayt alayhum-as-salam and defending their holy teachings. His excellence in Fiqh, Usul and other Islamic science gave him particular prominence amongst the eminent scholars of today.
