Currently, the philosopher and theologian, known in Baku as Sayyid Hasan Huseynov, was born into a religious family in Zangilan region, Azerbaijan (today, under the control of Armenian forces). The part of their house was always a place for praying, a kind of shrine. However, during Soviet times, it was forbidden to do that and the place was closed, only to be later operated as a school. He remembers," I opened my eyes in a religious family. I remember when we were kids, a part of our house which was a place for worship was destroyed and the school was opened instead. My grandmother always used to argue with them: "It is a shrine, you are mistaken in the destruction of a sacred institution." However, despite the pressure, the family continued to worship. "
Although he was born and grew up in a religious family, he himself, came to the religion in the ‘90s. "Due to the fact that my family was religious, I also had some interest. In childhood, I always took my grandmother's Koran and asked the question, "I wonder if I can read it someday or not?” However, because of various reasons such as education, military service, then work, I could not find time for it. When the war started in the ‘90s, I fought in the war as a volunteer, and was seriously injured. When I was ill I started to read some classics and religious books, and with my father's advice, I went to study at a madrasa and while studying I felt how my love for Islam started to become stronger. I entered Baku Islamic University and began to study and research religious literature.
Hasan Huseynov is currently continuing his scientific and religious activity. He visits sacred the Mashad and Hajj. "At that time, my family members wanted to visit too, but because of regime it was impossible. I am happy that at least I was fortunate enough to see the holy land."
