Imam Mohammad Tawhidi is a third-generation Iranian-born Australian Muslim imam and a publicly ordained Islamic authority who comes from a prominent Islamic lineage. His ancestors were the companions of Prophet Mohammad.
Imam Tawhidi ended his relationship with the Iranian regime and continued his studies in the Holy Cities in Iraq. In 2014, ISIS conquered large parts of Iraq’s territory and murdered members of Tawhidi’s family. In 2015, Imam Tawhidi began to gradually call for reform within Muslim societies.
On the 7th of December 2018, Imam Tawhidi released his book detailing the highlights of his life that prompted his transition into a reformist. His book became a National Best Seller in the first 6 hours.
Celebrated as the Imam of Peace, Tawhidi’s international activism against Islamic extremism has earned him a nomination for the 2019 Australian of the Year Awards. He currently travels the world speaking on peace, dialogue and social reform; while enjoying a healthy relationship with hundreds of politicians and faith leaders.
