About Yousef Sanei Yousef Sanei is an Iranian scholar, renowned theologian and Islamic philosopher. He is known as a senior reformist cleric and a Grand Marja of Shia Islam.Biography Born in Isfahan in 1937, he quickly rose to high ranks in his seminary studies at Qom's Hawzahs, and ranked first in the advanced level examinations in 1955, and was thus awarded the commendation of Grand Ayatollah Borujerdi for his exceptional achievement. Sanei retired from the Guardian Council in 1983 and has not held any political office since. According to CBS GlobalPost, Sanei has been considered "the successor" of Grand Ayatollah Hussein-Ali Montazeri as "the spiritual leader" of the opposition movement in Iran, and in early January 2010, "pro-regime websites reported" that Sanei "was stripped of his title" as Grand Ayatollah.
