Salam dear all,

As a foreigner living in Tehran at the moment, I noticed how many people have cosmetic surgery, and especially nose jobs. 
Can anybody explain the popularity of surgery to me?

Many thanks in advance!

Best,

S

Iranians are very beautiful and attractive and have almost the perfect looks except the nose part:grin:..so they do the surgery for the nose to become perfect :p  (from the outside).but unfortunately, many become 'ugly' after such surgeries! :l

Peace..

Thanks Fatima, thats an interesting point! But then why do they also have breast enlargements for example?
And another thing I was wondering about: I also have many body parts that are not perfect, but I consider this to be part of who I am. Imperfections make a person unique. But as I understand it correctly, Iranians do not this this way? :)

"cheshmo ham cheshmi" sounds like something worth looking into! So that is about the one person wanting to be more beautiful and perfect than the other? Is that only about beauty or also other things?

Salam,

Physical alteration will not stop in Iran, it will continue up to heaven.

There is a hadith, by the prophet, which says, in heaven there is a market, you can go and choose any facial / physical feature, and totally change your physical appearance , but still everyone will recognize you :) 

For those who are interested :)

Thank you, that's very interesting! So there is no harm in body alteration at all according to the prophet?

Here is the hadith from bihar al an war in arabic:

در روایت است: قال أمیرالمؤمنین (ع): قال النبی (ص) : إنّ فِی الجَنّةِ سُوقا مَا فِیهَا شِرى وَ لَا بَیع إلّا الصُّوَر مِن الرِجالِ و النَّساء ، مَن اشتَهَى صُورَة دَخَل فِیهَا ؛

امیرمومنان علی (ع) از پیامبر نقل می کند که آن حضرت(ص) فرمود: به راستی در بهشت بازاری است که در آن خرید و فروشی جز صورت های مردان و زنان نیست. کسی که صورتی را خوش کرد به آن صورت وارد می شود و همان شکل را به خود می گیرد.(بحارالانوار ج 8 ص 147)

Imam Ali, narrated from the prophet ( pbuh ) : Verily there is a market in paradise, in which there is a section for buying and selling male and female facial parts. When some one likes a face, will enter in that face, and will appear in that shape.( bihar al anwar v.8 pg.147 )

 

Any amount of perceived beauty is alright as long as it is only for the Mahram, more specifically husband.

Human beings like beauty, and we are not in perfect stature on earth, but in heaven even thing will be perfect, just some people would like to change their features for fun and variety in heaven probably

Nose. Some folks don't have good noses. I've seen gorgeous middle eastern women with parrot noses. Huge noses are very distracting. Some women get very self conscious hence the need for plastic surgery.

Qaim, yes, your children may inherit your nose but they too can fix their noses :)

You shouldn't try to "fix" what isn't broken. To fix, you imply that women who don't have a small nose have a broken face. Just because most models/actresses have mouse European noses it doesn't mean you and your kids should break your noses and get a new one. Even if you see your appearance as imperfect, the cure is not to "perfect" it - there is no such thing as perfect appearance. The cure is to accept your self and see passed this colonial nonsense and inferiority complex.

Look like a parrot, get it "fixed" to look like a dog? No thanks.

Yep exactly.

And I will add most Iranian women would look better keeping their original nose because it fits their face. They usually get their nose too small which makes their large eyes/eyebrows and shape of their face look too big or wide in comparison.  Keep everything the way God intended.

Also a lot of them get multiple surgeries which then makes them look like Michael Jackson. There are so many Michael Jackson looking women walking around Tehran it's disgusting.

Interesting. Having a nosejob or other plastic surgery job for vanity would be looked down upon in our culture. (Cant say for everyone but in my circle it would be).

As our people become more Westernised it looks like plastic surgery is going to become more common especially with high society rich ladies who have nothing better to do.

I rue the day when it goes mainstream.

    • Most Shi'a don't pray? May I remind you that being a tarik al salat might be worse than adultery.
    • What are the possible meanings of word "Kitab" in Quranic Arabic?
      It appears that it has a wide range of meanings e.g.,

       كِتَابٌ مَّرْقُومٌ
      Written Book (83:20)

      كِتَابٌ مَّعْلُومٌ
      Term made known (15:4)

      كِتَابٌ يَنطِقُ بِالْحَقِّ
      Book which speaks with truth

      لَكِتَابٌ عَزِيزٌ
      A Mighty Book (41:41)

      كِتَابٌ حَفِيظٌ
      A writing that preserves (50:4)

      And today while I was reciting the chapter 27, I found that the same word "Kitab" is used in the meaning of letter.

      كِتَابٌ كَرِيمٌ
      Honorable Letter (27:29)

      اذْهَب بِّكِتَابِي هَذَا فَأَلْقِهْ إِلَيْهِمْ ثُمَّ تَوَلَّ عَنْهُمْ فَانظُرْ مَاذَا يَرْجِعُونَ قَالَتْ يَا أَيُّهَا المَلَأُ إِنِّي أُلْقِيَ إِلَيَّ كِتَابٌ كَرِيمٌ


      So as per translations, "Kitab" possibly means "Book", "Record", "Writing", "Letter", "Term"...

      Please share with me if you know more possible meanings of word "Kitab" or its root word "Ka Ta Ba"..
    • Out of curiosity - what would you personally require to know that God exits? I mean, do you wanna see a big white fluff of cotton to know God exists or something like that?
    • So now we will have to define sense and perception. Sense is ability to think and perception is ability to understand. And when you understand and think obviously you will deduce somethings.
    •   salam. you are slightly mistaken about the way sunnis view the quran and abrogation. there are 3 types of abrogations: 1. verse and ruling both abrogated. 2. verse abrogated but ruling stays. 3. verse stays but ruling abrogated. the third kind remain in the quran today as well ofc, for example the verses of khumr being permissible under certain conditions. the first and second types are the ones that are mentioned in the ahadith. but this conversation has slightly derailed. i hope you dont mind my going back to the original point. question was, how can we trust the shia narrators/versions of ahadith? i will do you one good. i will stop presenting the sanad argument. and even though you said i believe in the quran because of sunni hadith, i dont. ofc not. anyway, i will ask the same question about the sunni narrators. how can we trust them? so that we have no reason to trust either of the narrators. fair enough? all we have and believe in is the quran. so the next questions that comes up are two: 1) which version should we trust and accept, the sunni or the shia? and 2) without relying on either shia or sunni hadith, how can we justify different variants of the quran available today or how do we know which is the actual quran?  i know you might think i am repeating myself. but i am not. also, i want to outline one possible response from you before hand. you might say that the quran itself says that Allah wants to rid the ahlul bayt of rijs. to purify them. and the ahlul bayt tell us that the quran which is prevalent among the masses is the actual quran. but the problem with that answer is that the verse of purification is for the 5, or the ahlul kisa, not for the remaining imams. and the only way you know that the remaining imams are included in this verse is because of ahadith narrated by shia narrators. which we decided, along with sunni narrators, cant be trusted. and hence this response to the second question doesnt hold. P.S. i dont believe uthman arranged the order of the surahs. i believe the order of the surahs was decided by the prophet pbuh, not by the companions. as for the hadith in abu dawud and tirmidhi which basically says uthman placed surah taubah and anfal together of his own, it is a weak hadith.
