Imam Tawhidi

Mohammad Tawhidi is an Iranian-born Australian Muslim scholar. Imam Tawhidi holds several licenses from the Islamic Seminaries of the Holy Cities of Qum (Iran) and Karbala (Iraq). Tawhidi was made an imam by Ayatollah Sayid Sadiq Shirazi in Qum, Iran in 2010.

Tawhidi is a Shi’ite Muslim of Iraqi origin who was born in Qum, Iran. He is fluent in Arabic, English, and Persian. He is president of the Islamic Association of South Australia, which he founded in 2016. He has received lessons from Ayatollah Sayid Sadiq Shirazi. He has also written infrequently for The Huffington Post since January 2016. Tawhidi refers to himself as “the Imam of peace.”

Tawhidi believes that Islam must be reformed in order to survive. He has stated that some Islamic texts, particularly the Sahih al-Bukhari, should be banned, claiming that it is used as a source for acts of terrorism. Tawhidi has been critical of the treatment of women in Islam. Tawhidi believes that all acts of terrorism are condemned in the Quran. Tawhidi has denounced ISIS as an extremist body that does not represent Islam. In June 2017, after the jihadi terrorist attack in London, he described the branch as a “cancer” on the religion.
