Born1334 AH


Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Farhi Araki was born in 1333 AH to a pious mother from a respectable family and a noble father named Seyyed Nuruddin, from the Seyed community of Kororud, lying at a distance of about one kilometer from Arak. This community belongs to Sadat Hosseini, whose lineage goes back to Imam Zain al-Abidin(AS), the beloved son of Imam Hussein(AS). He Studied Religious sciences in Qom and Arak.

At the age of twenty-two, Farahi became the son-in-law of Grand Ayatollah Araki, marrying his eldest daughter and having three sons and two daughters. Three years later, as a result of anti-Pahlavi political actions, especially along with the influential Ayatollah Haj Agha Mohsen Araki, who was acting against the anti-Islamic plans of the Britishers, Farahi was arrested by Reza Khan and thus imprisoned very early in his youth, spending more than a year under various tortures of the prison.
