Hundreds of angry followers stormed government offices and clashed with security forces after it was announced on Monday that he was retiring from Iraqi politics. But the question is arising in everyone’s mind that who is Muktada al-Sadr.

Shia cleric Muktada al-Sadr has been a powerful Iraqi politician for the past two decades. He is deeply influenced by the ideas of his father and his father-in-law. Sadar’s father, Mohammad Sadiq, and father-in-law Mohammad Bakir, were both highly influential religious leaders. Many Shias in Iraq consider him a leader who raises the voice of the poor. Muktada al-Sadr is called Marza. Marja means the Mujtahid-e-Azam (the greatest scholar to show new paths) whom all other scholars – accept and follow as a great scholar.
seats won in parliamentary elections
Sadar won the most seats in the October parliamentary elections but did not reach a majority. Sadr’s coalition won 73 of the 329 seats in Iraq’s October 2021 election, 19 seats more than the previous time.
