Shk. Amin Rastani was born and raised in the United States of America. After finishing high school, dismayed and disheartened by the superficial nature of the Western lifestyle, he thirsted for the deepness of life, which he recognized, could only be experienced through connecting with his creator. After these many realizations, he came to the conclusion that he wanted to spend the following years of his youth in a purer spiritual and intellectual environment, hoping to fulfill his dream of being a learned expert in Islam. With great effort and determination to succeed, Sh. Amin travelled to Qum in 1998 to pursue howzah studies in the Howzah Ilmiyyah of Qum and has been there ever since.
Due to references by scholars in the US, he was able to get into one of the top schools therein, and graduated from the six-year introductory level, which included years of Arabic syntax and grammar, logic (mantiq), Islamic theology (kalaam), Islamic rulings and law (ahkaam), Islamic history, jurisprudence (fiqh), principles of jurisprudence (usul al-fiqh), and other disciplines, after which, he began the intermediate level of fiqh and usul al-fiqh studies comprising of the valuable works of the late Shaykh Murtadhan al-Ansari, namely the ‘Makaasib’ and ‘Rasaa’il’ series, and the philosophy of the late Allamah Tabatabai, spending years on these studies as well. He is currently at an advanced level of fiqh and usul al-fiqh studies that he wishes to inshAllah complete someday. Simultaneously, Sh. Amin is also working towards a master’s degree in Semitic religions in one of the universities of Qum, with a dissertation on the Code of Canon Law (Catholicism). Among all of these accomplishments, Sh. Amin is also a teacher in the Howza and lectures internationally on various occasions of the Islamic year.
