Qomi is a cleric and has the title of Hojjatal Islam. He is a member of the board of trustees of the Islamic Coalition Society. He has been a member of the Assembly of Experts, representing Tehran. He was also elected to the fourth assembly in 2011, again representing Tehran.
Until his resignation in January 2006 Qomi was the director of the Supreme Leader Khamanei's representative office in the Iranian universities. The same date he was named a member to the high council of cultural revolution and also the council of the representative office in the Iranian universities. He has also been serving as the deputy head of the Supreme Leader's office on international affairs and communications. Qomi and Rahim Safavi, military advisor to the Supreme Leader Khamenei, oversee the Iranian nuclear bomb progress.
In late July 2013, the Mehr news agency reported that he was the only candidate for the intelligence minister at the cabinet of newly-elect president Hassan Rouhani. However, not Qomi but Mahmoud Alavi was nominated for the post on 4 August.
