The Imam studied at the religious school of Akhund Molla Abu’l-Qasim. Molla Abu’l-Qasim was an old man whose religious school was located near the Imam’s house. I too studied at his school. Each one of the children would recite half a chapter of the Qur’an at the religious school daily and whenever any of the children would finish recitation of the complete Qur’an, it was customary for him to offer lunch to the Molla as well as the rest of the children.After finishing rendering of the whole Qur’an when he was almost seven, the Imam went to study literature and Arabic lessons from Shaykh Ja‘far—paternal cousin of my mother.
