Grand Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli (Persian: عبدالله جوادی آملی) is an Iranian Twelver Shi'a Marja. He is a conservative Iranian politician and one of the prominent Islamic scholars of the Hawza in Qom.

Early life

He was born in 1933 in Amol, north of Iran. Then he studied Islamic courses in Amol, Tehran and Qom.

In politics

He was the leader of Ayatollah Khomeini's mission to Mikhail Gorbachev, the leader of USSR in January 1988.[1][2]

He announced his resignation from an influential position as the Friday Prayer Leader in Qom on 27 November 2009, saying that one should not hold such a position if one has not proven influential.[3] He had previously protested unethical approaches to election campaigns.[4] However, during his farewell address, Amoli clearly pointed out that his resignation was not due to differences with the government but due to health reasons. He continues to attend Friday congregational prayers in the city of Qom even after resigning as the Friday prayer leader.[5]
