Hasan Mahboubi

Born: 17 April 1913 in Isfahan

Murdered on 21 July 1992 in Tehran


Hasan Mahboubi lost his father at four and his mother when 12 years old.  His Aunt raised him as one of her own children.  In 1939 he was employed by the Melli Bank, but was dismissed because of being a Baha’i.   He got married on 30 August 1938.  In 1953, he pioneered to Aden in Yemen.  In 1981, he was elected as a member of the third National Spiritual Assembly[1] of the Baha’is of Iran [after the revolution]. After the voluntary suspension of their administrative institutions by the Baha’is of Iran, he continued his service to the community, as a member of the three-person committee until the end of his life.  On 21 July 1992, he had a very suspicious accident close to his residence.  Despite the efforts of his friends who facilitated his transfer to the Hospital, he passed away shortly after arriving there.
