Abdulmajid Lutfi, son of Omar, son of Abdulrahman, son of Mohammed, was born on #30-06-1905# in Khanaqin, Kurdistan. His father was martyred in World War I. He completed his secondary education in Baghdad and lived there, so his writings were in Arabic.
The Khaloozi family has produced many talented scholars and writers. His older brother, Abdulaziz Khaloozi, was a well-known judge who tried criminals in Kurdish. He was a great writer and storyteller. His brother, Dr. Safa and Khaloozi, was a scholarly professor and taught at Baghdad and Oxford universities. He was a translator from English to Arabic and vice versa.
Abdulmajid was a great literateur, writer and publisher. He published 19 valuable books during his lifetime, but when he died on #27-10-1992# in Baghdad, he left behind about 190 manuscripts, some of which are in Kurdish because he spoke Arabic, Turkish, and Kurdish languages very well. He translated several books from Turkish into Arabic and wrote poems in Kurdish.
Abdulmajid Lutfi was also a poet and a novelist. He has a collection of poems in Kurdish and most of his poems are quatrains. He was the first writer in Iraq and Kurdistan to write poetry in the 1930s. He lived a long life and struggled with the problems of his community for 87 years. He was always in favor of resolving the Kurdish issue within Iraq. He participated in all Kurdish cultural and scientific activities, including the Second Congress of Kurdish Teachers in Shaqlawa. On #15-08-1960#, he participated in the congress and presented a proposal on the language and literary history of Kuristan. He wrote in his will that after his death he should be taken back to Khanaqin and buriet there so that people know that he was a loyal Kurdish Citizen. Abdul Majid Lutfi's literary voice is not in how he wrote his works, but in the strength of his subjects, because in all his literary works he demanded equality, peace and brotherhood and was against oppression. Some of his works have been translated into Russian, Spanish, French and English.
