Parviz Mohebbi was born in Masal County in Gilan province into a religious Muslim family. He ‎spent his early school years in his hometown and went to Martyr Motahhari High School for his ‎first three years of high school. After that he went to Tehran to further his studies in leading ‎high schools in Tehran. Though he did not need money, he spent his summer holidays working ‎in order to avoid wasting time. ‎

Mohebbi sat for the Iranian university entrance examinations (Concour) and managed to enter the University ‎of Shiraz to study medical technology. From the very beginning of his presence in the Shiraz ‎University, Mohebbi joined the Muslim students who were engaged in underground activities ‎against the US-backed Shah of Iran due to his strong ‎religious beliefs.‎

Mohebbi's great interest in Ayatollah Dastgheib led him to take part in his religious speeches ‎and to read his books. He used to bring Ayatollah Imam Khomeini and Ayatollah Dastgheib’s (tape-recorded) ‎messages to his hometown, and distributing copies of them.

Being one of the elements of street protests and attacks on nightclubs and liquor stores in Shiraz, ‎Mohebbi partook in the rallies in Shiraz when the anti-Shah protests spread all over Iranian ‎cities.‎

After the victory of Islamic Revolution in ‎‏1979‏‎, Parviz contributed to the enlightening of newly ‎admitted students and warned them against the dangers of deceptive groups.‎

He came back to his hometown to work in revolutionary institutions, such as ‎Construction Jihad (Jihad-e Sazandegi), Imam Khomeini Relief Committee, and the Iranian ‎Housing Foundation. Simultaneously, he established the Masal Basij and Iranian Revolutionary ‎Guards in forest area. He himself commanded the IRGC’s Masal, Shanderman, and Pare Sar ‎Corps. He also made great efforts in the development of housing for the poor and school ‎building and bringing comfort and safety to the region.‎

One of the reasons there have been so many attempts on his life by MKO and other anti-‎revolutionary and anti-Islam groups was his important role in the awareness of many people of the region on the anti-revolutionary groups.

When he was returning from his final mission in Tehran in October ‎‏10‏‎, ‎‏1981‏‎, Parviz Mohebbi ‎was assassinated by terrorists.‎
