Mohammad Shomali


After studying and teaching in the Islamic Seminaries of Iran for nine years, I have begun my MPhil in Asian and Middle Eastern Studies focusing on Muslim-Jewish Relations. During my nine years in the Islamic Seminaries of Iran I studied and later taught Ancient and Modern Arabic, Greek Logic, Theology, Ancient and Western Philosophy, Islamic History, and Islamic Jurisprudence. I have taught and delivered lectures in universities in different countries such as Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Iran and the UK. In order to have direct access to primary sources I have spent a lot of my time learning languages. I read and write in Persian, Arabic, French, and Swahili and am now studying Hebrew.

Research Interests

In my MPhil my research focus is on the rights of religious minorities under Islamic Law.
