نام :‌سید عبدالرئوف (Sayyid Abdurrauf)

نام‌خانوادگی:‌افضلی (Afzali)

سمت: عضو هیئت علمی (استادیار دانشگاه) جامعه المصطفی (Assistant Professor at al-Mustafa University )

سید عبدالرئوف افضلی فرزند سید کاظم 1/1/1350 در تبرغنک، روستایی در شمال شرقی سنگماشه، ناحیه ­ای در استان غزنی (در افغانستان) دیده به جهان گشود. او در آستانه ورود به کلاس سوم بود که انقلاب شروع شد.

در حالی که جنگ بین مجاهدین و اشغالگران روسی در جریان بود، تحصیلات مقدماتی حوزوی خویش را در یک حوزه­ علمیه­ محلی به پایان رسانید. در سال 1366، به همراه برادر بزرگترش جناب حجت الاسلام حاج سید اسد الله احمدی که در حال حاضر در مقام روحانی محل ایفای وظیفه می‌نمایند، به شهر کویته واقع در کشور پاکستان عزیمت نمود. در آنجا تحت نظر عالمان فرهیخته­ ای چون حجت الاسلام حاج شیخ عبد الصمد اکبری، حجت الاسلام حاج شیخ محمد رضا اکبری، حجت الاسلام حاج شیخ رفیعی و دیگر بزرگان به تحصیل منطق، فقه، معانی و بیان و اصول فقه پرداخت.

گرچه قوانین حاکم بر حوزه­ های کوینه مثل دیگر حوزه ­های سنتی شیعی در جهان اسلام سخت­گیرانه و دست و پاگیر بود و براحتی با درس­ های جنبی کنار نمی­آمد؛ ولی او با تلاش و پشت کار علاوه بر گذراندن دوره­ های رایج در حوزه­ های علمیه شیعی، توانست همزمان زبان­ های عربی و انگلیسی را نیز فراگیرد.

دکتر در سال 1373  وارد حورزه علمیه قم شد. دروس دوره تکمیلی فقه و اصول خویش را زیر نظر عالمان بزرگی چون آیت الله مکارم شیرازی و آیت الله سبحانی گذراند. او علاوه بر گذراندن دوره ­هایی سنتی در رشته­ های فلسفه، الهیات، رجال، درایه و تفسیر قرآن در حوزه، در سال 1375 وارد موسسه آموزشی و پژوهشی امام خمینی (ره) شد. با اتمام دوره کارشناسی در رشته الهیات و معارف اسلامی این موسسه، در سال 1380 وارد مقطع کارشناسی ارشد فلسفه همین موسسه گردید و در سال 1385 پس از دفاعیه موفقیت­ آمیز از رساله خود با موضوع «تبیین و نقد فلسفه سیاسی جان رالز» و با کسب امتثاز عالی 19/5 موفق به اخذ درجه کارشناسی ارشد در رشته فلسفه از این موسسه گردید. وی در سال 1393 پس از دفاع موفقیت‌آمیز از رساله خود با موضوع «آرمان‌شهر در فلسفه سیاسی ملاصدرا و رالز» و با کسب امتیاز عالی 19/5 موفق به اخذ درجه دکترا از جامعه المصطفی در قم گردید. وی در سال تحصیلی 93-94 جزء نخبگان جامعه المصطفی ص بوده و اکنون با رتبه استادیاری عضو هیئت علمی جامعه المصطفی ص می‌باشد. 

     دکتر در این مدت علاوه بر اشتغال به علم­ آموزی به کار پژوهش و تدریس نیز اشتغال داشته است. وی بیش از هفت سال است که به تدریس فلسفه و کلام اسلامی در جامعه المصطفی (دانشگاه المصطفی) اشتغال دارد و اکنون عضو هیئت علمی (استادیار) این دانشگاه است. وی بیش از یک سال است که در موسسه آموزشی و پژوهشی امام خمینی (ره) (موسسه آموزش عالی) نیز به تدریس مشغول است.
