Mortaza Motahhari (b. 1338/1920 - d. 1399/1979) was a prominent shia jurist, philosopher, theologian, thinker, and writer of the twentieth century. He was a student of ‘Allamah Tabataba’i and Imam Khomeini (RA) and was considered to be one of the most influential contemporary Iranian clerics in expounding upon Islamic teachings, in keeping pace with the need of the time.
Islamic concepts that were earlier dealt with in a complicated and difficult manner were presented by Motahhari in a simple and easy manner in his own personal style.
His books on different topics have been repeatedly published in Persian and other languages.
Kyrgyzstan is a Muslim majority country in Central Asia. Nearly 90 percent of the country’s population are followers of Islam.
