Ayatollah Baqir al-Irawani was born in Najaf, Iraq in 1949. He joined the Islamic seminary there at a young age and quickly progressed to the advanced levels where he studied under some of the greatest jurists of his time, such as Grand Ayatollah Abu al-Qasim al-Khu‘i and Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr. Due to the difficult circumstances in Iraq during the Baathist regime, he was forced to migrate to Qum, Iran, where he continued his scholarly work. He then returned to Iraq and is currently a leading teacher, researcher, and author in the Najaf seminaries.
