The political open space of the years after Shahrivar 1320 led to the growth and rethinking of various opinions and ideas. In this free space, emerging parties tried to recruit and advance their goals. Bahamad Azadegan party was established at this time and its founder Ahmad Kasravi became one of the controversial figures of contemporary history. Ahmad Kasravi implemented his goals from 131 AH by authoring the book Ain and 1312 AH by managing Peyman magazine. Osh was the reform of the society in all fields. Ahmad Kasravi’s interpretation of religion to pure religion and the publication of the book Verjavand Foundation opened a new chapter in his research, which remained unfinished due to conflict and death.Criticisms and accusations were made around Kasravi’s activities, and the claim of prophethood is one of them. In this research, we are trying to investigate the factors and causes that have arisen, to find out the reasons for the votes and opinions about Kasravi’s prophethood, as well as the ambiguities of this issue. It seems that, contrary to popular insights and readings, Kasravi did not claim to be a prophet; But the moral characteristics and the contradictions of Kasurai and enmity and the incomplete perception of the critics caused the formation and believability of this issue. This article deals with the problem in a descriptive-explanatory way using the library method and using the necessary sources.
