Meet the man who hasn't had a bath in over 60 years...
To relax he likes to sit down and have a smoke, from a pipe packed with animal farces. Mr Haji says he chose this way of life after going through some emotional setbacks in his youth and since then - perhaps unsurprisingly - he has become a bit isolated.
His home is in Dejgah village in the southern province of Fars in Iran where, once, a group of young men offered to give him a shower - but luckily he managed to escape.
At night he either sleeps in a hole in the ground, which is quite like a grave, or in an open brick shack which concerned locals built for him
But don't think Mr Haji doesn't look after himself - when he wants to look his best he uses car mirrors for grooming, The Tehran Times reported.
And, when he needs a haircut, he simply burns his locks in a fire.
As for clothing, he wears rags and, in the winter, a war helmet to ward off the cold .
The last record of longest time going without showers belonged to a 66-year-old Indian man, Kailash Singh, who had not taken a bath over 38 years.
Mr Haji claims to have beaten that.
