Presidential hopeful Saeed Mohammad came to the center of the political stage in Iran, soon after the assassination of Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani in January 2020.

He started working with the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corpse at the age of 19.

Mohammad worked as the head of Atlas Group, another affiliate of the Revolutionary Guard. He was also the commander of one of the most important Revolutionary Guard bases.
Like other senior officers of the Revolutionary Guard, Mohammad, who holds the rank of lieutenant general, was placed on the list of US sanctions in 2007, in his capacity as the head of the
Khatam‑al Anbiya Construction Headquarters. The company implements most infrastructure projects in Iran. It was established in 2018, following withdrawal by the US from the nuclear deal with Iran.
