Salamun Alaykum.

I need to talk to some Iranians out here. I want to migrate Iran and want to discuss about the culture, life and job scenario of Iran. I have only known Iran from pictures and videos. I want to know in depth about Iran so that I can begin my phase of life in Iran. I love Iran because it has given us World Best Leaders, the most pious ones, the most courageous ones. Qom is the city of Ahlulbayt too.


Please inbox me if you're an Iranian :)

Am about to be a final year student with 2 semesters left for my graduation to be completed. I did my majors in Computer Science from India. (I don't like my country though).

What do you want to know?

How is the culture in Iran. Daily life and how good are schools and universities? What is the job scenario? Is Pay Scale good?

How is the hospitality of Iran. Do they accept an outsider with love?

Culture? I really dont know what to say because it is a very general question. Maybe if you ask more precise question, I will be able to answer.

As to schools and universities, people have different opinions. I loved my schools and my teachers but if you ask this question from another person, he/ she may have negative opinions.

All schools in Iran except those in villages, are segregated so there are schools for boys and schools for girls.

As to universities...what do you exactly want to know?

Unemployment rate is rather high in Iran specially in small towns and villages and it is why many people immigrate to bigger cities like Tehran.

I will answer the rest of questions later because I should go out now.

Pay scale...it depends on your job, your post, your CV (resume), your education, ....Unfortunately, most workers and farmers dont have enough incomes.

Hospitality...again it depends. People are different. Some people may be kind to you and some not. I think that some non-Iranian muslims have an ideal image of Iran in their minds. So when they visit Iran, they may become surprised or even disappointed. Iran isnt an ideal country and the people are not ideal. There are good and bad people here like anywhere else.

    • Salam. If the person lives in another country and has the wish to be buried in Iraq, there are governmental regulations about shipping a person's remains. The country where that person lives has laws that need to be followed. For example, the person who died would need a medical statement that the body is not contagious. The casket would need to be inside a lead box that would not leak, then placed inside a wooden crate which is nailed shut and has special seals that show if there was tampering or opening. The funeral home would need government permission to transport the body by airline and not all airlines provide that service. The licensed funeral home worker would need to drive the prepared package with the person's remains to the licensed airline and make sure that the remains were placed on the airplane. At the arrival in the airport in Iraq, the person's remains would be in the customs area and the customs workers would wait for the person who would need to personally claim the body and sign documents that the body was picked up. Because the whole thing is very heavy and would not fit inside an ambulance or hearse, the wooden crate would need to be opened which means workers or relatives of the deceased would need to use crowbars to remove it. After lifting the lead box into the vehicle, the deceased would need to be transported to the cemetery location where the bodies are washed. The cemetery would take care of everything but of course the price will depend on the location of the cemetery. The most expensive part of the international burial is the western country (funeral home, trip to airport, airline shipping) could reach $15,000. The price of the cemetery plot, washing the body, wrapping the body in kaffan, is a separate price. The temporary grave marker with the name written in chalk on it is probably free, but the grave stone with the name carved on it would be a separate price. This does not answer your question of whether someone can be buried in Iraq, but I just want you to know that the person needs to save his money if he has such a wish. May Allah SWT grant all halal wishes.  
    • That is the crux of the issue here brother. I am trying to understand what/who determines which parts to accept and which parts to reject.
    • Or this question: Can I use body wash to wash my hair?  
    • There isn't even unity among shias. You call non-twelver Shias heretics. Do you think you are ready to unity with Sunnis?
    • I suppose it all depends on the person. But yes, if someone took a literalist approach and did believe that the many strories of scripture were all true in a black and white way, and they simultaneously were consistent in believing all things they viewed as miracles, then yes they would believe both in the literal story of Adam and Eve, and the literal story of the virgin birth.
