Mohamed Ali Eltaher



Page 27


Eltaher was known to all either by his full name, or by his traditional surname “Aboul-Hassan”. But, whoever referred to him in writing addressed him as “Al-Moujahed Al-Aarabi Al-Kabir”, namely the Great Arab Moujahed (i.e. Great Man of Struggle). The title came to him naturally from his close friends and those who respected his position, his knowledge, and the degree to which he had dedicated his life for the sake of just and rightful causes in the Arab World.
