Rahim Musulmoniyon (also Musulmonkulov, born 21.01.1936 in Qubodiyon, deceased 03.07.2016 in Dushanbe) was a prominent Tajik academic, literary critic[1], Doctor of Philology (1980) and University Professor (1981).[2]


Rahim Musulmoniyoni Qubodiyoni was born on January 21, 1936 in the village of Yobuz, Qubodiyon district, Khatlon region of the Republic of Tajikistan into a peasant family.

He began his career in 1962 after graduating from Tajikistan National University, as a senior laboratory assistant of the Arabic language department. He was a graduate student (1963-1966), and lecturer at the department of Soviet-Tajik literature (1967-1979).

Musulmanoan completed his doctorate at St. Petersburg State University under the supervision of Prof. Alexander Nikolayevich Bolderov. He had developped an excellent relationship and friendship with Prof. Bolderov. Bolderov was worried about Musulmoniyon's condition after the start of the civil war in Tajikistan and reportedly said in the moments before his death: "Where is Rahim?" How is he doing?" From 1980 to 1992, he was the head of the department of modern literature of the Tajik National University (TNU).

R. Musulmoniyon's work consists of numerous scientific articles, commentaries, books as well as a major textbook, entitled Theory of Literature (Nazariyayi Adabiyot), part of the core curriculum of the literature degree at the Tajik State University. His interests and work ranged from issues of ancient and modern history of Tajik literature; in particular theoretical and aesthetic aspects of Persian-Tajik medieval literature, Soviet as well as contemporary Tajik literature.

Musulmoniyon is the author of more than a thousand scientific publications, including fundamental work on "Saj’ (a type of rhymed prose in Arabic literature) and its historical development in the Tajik prose" (1966), Ataullah Mahmud-i Husayni (1983, Dushanbe), Kamaliddin Hussain Vaiz Kashifi, Badae’-ul-afkar fi sana'e-ul-ash’ar (1977, Moscow), Persian-Tajik Classical Poetics of 10th-15th centuries (1989, Moscow), etc.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union and the outbreak of the Tajik civil war in 1991, Musulmoniyon was forced to leave Tajikistan and emigrate to Iran (1992 to 2009). Musulmoniyon was the deputy chairman of the Democratic Party[3] of Tajikistan during its beginnings but later emphasized on his literary and scientific activities[4]. His academic activity in Iran[5] yielded 13 books and over 1,000 scientific articles.[6]

Rahim Musulmoniyon Qubodiyoni passed away on July 3, 2016[7] [8]from Alzheimer's disease. He is buried at the Sari Osiyo cemetery in Dushanbe, Tajikistan next to his wife, Saodat Rahmonova. According to Iraj Bashiri, Musulmoniyon is one of the prominent Tajik figures of the 20th century[9].
