Early life and education

Hakimi was born in Tabriz to an ethnic Iranian Azerbaijani family. He attended Dar ol-Fonoon, and finished advanced studies in Medicine in Paris.


Hakimi served as royal physician to Mozzafar-al-Din Shah. He then became a member of the Parliament, and served as cabinet minister 17 times, as prime minister for three terms, and as speaker of the Senate of Iran.

His second tenure as prime minister was short-lived (three months) as the Soviets, angry over his refusal to grant them an oil concession in Northern Iran, inspired Azerbaijani Communists to declare independence from Iran. Soviet troops occupying the Northern regions refused to allow Iranian troops to enter the region to put down the uprising. Hakimi submitted the issue to the UN Security Council and resigned from office as a protest of Soviet actions in January 1946.[1]


Hakimi died in Tehran at the age of 96.
