Mustafa Khomeini was a great scholar and had well command over several disciplines of Islamic studies including the jurisprudence, Quranic interpretation, philosophy and mysticism.


He was an authentic jurist and a steadfast thinker. He was also sharp minded, innovative, a master of philosophy, intuitive, and interpreted the Holy Qur'an from dynamic standpoints.


Sayyid Mustafa Khomeini, the eldest son of Imam Khomeini was born on the 12th of December 1930. From his early childhood, he was brought up under the influence of his family life environment, which was a religious and scientific one.


He made sure that Imam Khomeini was in touch with far-reaching and complicated parts of the Islamic movement in Iran and different parts of the world during the ongoing struggle against aggressive powers.


Being influenced by the religious and spiritual environment and the viewpoints of Imam Khomeini, Sayyid Mustafa embarked on political activities from very early stages of his youth- hood.


He took part actively in the Islamic movement under the wise leadership of Imam Khomeini at every stage. He highlighted various perspectives of the ongoing Islamic movement in Iran and continued his mission during the later years of exile.


He stood firm during the ups and downs of the political activities, particularly in Iraq.


He undertook very serious efforts to strengthen the movement until the 22nd of October 1977, when he passed away suspiciously in Iraq. Some analysts believe that his death was plotted and conspired by some elements belonging to the then dictatorial regime of Shah and anti-revolutionary oppressive powers.


His academic works and dynamic thought would continue to guide the thinkers and young generations across the Muslim world for the coming years and decades.
