Licenses, Recognitions and Qualifications


Imam Tawhidi holds several licences from the Islamic Seminaries of the Holy Cities of Qum (Iran) and Karbala (Iraq), and has achieved the status of a faith leader and Imam for the Muslim community. Below are a number of selected licences for public display purposes, and the remainder of licences shall be revealed in an appropriate time in the future; this is to maintain the safety of the Grand Ayatollahs that have issued these licences to Imam Tawhidi, considering the fact that they live under certain political circumstances. Imam Tawhidi has been recognised by the Senate of Canada in 2018.

Note: Imam Tawhidi’s views have significantly developed since this ceremony in 2010, and there is currently no affiliation between Imam Tawhidi and any Ayatollah. For further reading on this journey and development, see the Imam’s Best Selling book: ‘The Tragedy of Islam, Admissions of a Muslim Imam’.
