  Sheikh Fazlollah Nouri

Farzaneh Babai


Son of Molla Abbas Kojuri (Nouri Tabassi), Hajj Sheikh Fazlollah Nouri (Kojuri, Nouri Tabarsi, Sheikh Shahid, Sheikh Nouri) was born in Kojur of Mazandaran, Dec. 24th, 1843. Following his elementary education, he left for Iraq to continue his religious studies. Ordered by Mirza Shirazi, he returned to Tehran and became the first rank clergy of Tehran. He played an important role in the risings which led to the issuing of the firman of constitutionalism. He collaborated with the rest of the constitutionalists including Seyyed Abdollah Behbahani. But his insistence on the compatibility of the constitution with the Islamic principles led to some disputes among the followers of the movement, and finally he was executed in July 31st, 1909.


The following documents indicate Sheikh Fazlollah Nouri’s attending his instructor, Mohammad Hassan Shirazi’s courses to find out the truth of the Tobacco sanction fatwa. He was also a great authority in answering the religious questions.  He made great efforts to donate legitimacy to the movement, and staged a sit in to protest against the removal of religiosity in the constitution.
