Biography[edit | edit source]

Bohlool Bahjat Afandi was a jurist, historian, and Philosopher of the 13th and 14th centuries. According to him, his lineage goes back to the famous Sahabi Abu Ayyub Ansari. Bahjat was born in 1288, in Zangi Zor, in the Karabakh region of Armenia. Bahjat traveled to different countries, including Istanbul, Egypt, Baghdad, Iran, and Bukhara. He was a free-thinking scholar; therefore, he returned from his previous religion, Hanafi, and converted to the Shafi'i religion. Ayatollah Shahab al-Din Marashi, a contemporary Shia taqlid authority (died 1990), met him in Hamedan and Tabriz, considered him capable in debates, and therefore, at Bahjat Afandi's request, Ayatollah Marashi permitted him to narrate from Shia books. He worked as a judge in Zangi Zor.

Bahjat Effendi died in 1971; however, according to some reports, he was murdered.
