About the Author

Sheikh Mohammad Saeed Bahmanpour is a cleric and a popular speaker.  He studied sociology at LSE and Tabatabai University of Tehran in which he has obtained a Masters degree. His interest in sociology was not an intrinsic one but to answer a call from within to know more about other religions. That call eventually took charge of his life and directed him to study religion proper in Tehran and Qum seminaries and to assume clerical duties. In 1999 he was invited to Cambridge University to teach as a visiting lecturer in the Faculty of Oriental Studies.

Later, he was appointed as the principle of The Islamic College in London which has both seminary and university degrees on its educational programs. He was in that post for four years. He has taught Islamic studies both in seminary and university courses for a long time before, during and after his post at the Islamic College.

His main fields of interest are theology, Islamic mysticism, and Qur’anic sciences and exegeses, including its history and compilation. He is also interested in the history of Jesus and Mary from an Islamic perspective and has written a screenplay about the life of Mary based on the Islamic sources, which was made into a successful movie.

Another of his works on Christian history was the screenplay about The Seven Sleepers of the Cave (Ashab al-Kahf). Sheikh Bahmanpour has authored several books including Muslim Identity in the 21st Century, ed. (2001), The Idols Will Fall (2010), The Blessed Tree: The Life and Times of Fatima Daughter of Muhammad (2011), Towards Eternal Life (2015), and Understanding Sura Yasin (2018).
