Dr. Ahmad Abdulmajid Hammoud (1947-2018) was an Australian member of Ahl al-Bayt World Assembly, who promoted the school of Ahl al-Bayt in Australia as a university professor, parliament member, and the head of the Supreme Islamic Shiite Council in Australia and provided great services for the followers of Shiism. In addition to his social and cultural activities, including the establishment of a mosque and an academic center as well as his various positions, he left an everlasting heritage of written works on the life and history of Ahl al-Bayt (a) in English and Arabic.
Hammoud believed in the proximity of Islamic denominations. He tried to establish unity among Muslims and bring Islamic denominations closer to each other. For this reason, he undertook the headship of the Association of Sunni Muslims in Australia for a while.
He was the first person who proposed the establishment of Ahl al-Bayt World Assembly to the guardian of the affairs of Muslims in the world, the Grand Ayatollah Khamenei. In this way, he played a key role in the formation of this blessed international institution.
