Born to a family of religious scholars in Kazimayn, Iraq in 1935, Ayatollah Muhammad Baqir al-Sadr proved to be a precocious and diligent student. As a young seminarian, he attended the courses of various great teachers, attaining the distinguished rank of mujtahid at the age of 30. In his writings, he sought to formulate an Islamic response to the most serious challenges of modernity. In 1980, he was arrested on the order of Iraq’s Baathist regime and was executed without trial.
