  1. OK. What are the facts that it is from Sunni sources? because this is not something the Quran says/teaches... So what do shia sources say about the antichrist?
  2. Someone told me that the antichrist will come from Iran? Does the Quran say such thing? What does the Quran say about Gog and Magog? Apparently Gog and Magog are regions, and today that region is considered Iran and former USSR territories…and the antichrist will come from one of those regions... please comment with the source, if you have any. Thank you.
  3. What does Islam says about people who are born with special God-given talents and mental abilities that others do not possess? There are people who have a gift to interpret dreams. I've met Islamic practitioners who have psychic abilities. So what does Islam say about consulting mediums?
  4. It's a good movie had been a fiction movie, but because they claim that the movie is based on true events, and yet it is only a twisted version of the truth, for that reason, I personally didnt like it. It's a good thing I didnt pay to go see it, I saw it on the internet!
  5. It doesn't look like you know much about Armenians...Have you ever met an Armenian? If you ever do, maybe ask them about millions of their victims OF YOUR KIND OF NATIONALISM. But of course, you will never admit the results of your kind of deliberate hate-mongering.
  6. I like Abbasi, and he is very intelligent. Thank God for people like him and the regime that don't bow down to the aggressors. And it is so sad to see Iranians join in with Western propaganda.
  7. Im also very disappointed in the many Iranians I have met on this side of the world. It's very sad to see that most Iranians that live in the West condemn Islam, and also insist that Islam has somehow damaged Iran!! They also have this weird philosophy that Muslims are irrational and ignorant, yet they seem to have forgotten that Persian scholars such as Aviciena, Zakaria Razi, Rumi, Hafez and many more Persian philosophers/scientists have been devout followers of Islam. They take pride in demonizing Islam and Muslims in the name of 'democracy'. In my opinion, they are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites who pretend to respect democracy. And God knows, these type of people are so intolerant, that one cannot even have an 'exchange of ideas' with them, yet they live in a land that approves of 'freedom of religion' and 'democracy'. It's so sad.
  8. If you're talking about Soraya S.Ulrich, she has publicly and openly denfended I.R.I on many occasions, and spoke out against the hypocrisy of the U.S. and Israel. I think she's good news.
  9. I like Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich. She is a CASMII colimnist, and her writings are against world powers and Israel. At a time where Iran has been demonized by western media, Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich has righfully defended Iran. She has the courage and insight to say what's on her mind, and she is not shy about it. Im proud of her!
  10. To make it brief, the main speaker is talking about the status of women in Iran, and how they are actively involved in different spheres of the Iranian society, and not just Iranian-Muslim women but she also mentions women from religious minorities in Iran too. She also mentions that there are no struggles/obstacles for their involvement in social activities in Iran. She also questions human right defenders of Zahra Bahrami (a notoriously criminal)...questioning why a criminal is being defended and so on. Also, the main speaker in question is extremely polite and courteous, while everyone else is deliberately rude with her. The Geneva ppl (which seems to include Iranians in diaspora too) are being impossible to have a dialogue with. And just to be clear, I'm sensing that the Geneva ppl are the ones that seem to be politically brainwashed...to the point that they cannot tolerate ppl or opinions that are different from them.
  11. I dont think u understood me. The Geneva ppl were not being fair towards the Iranian women. They were rude and uninterested in what the Iranian woman had to say.
  12. I came across this video, and I was really saddened by the unkind behavior of some people towards these Iranian women at a human rights debate in Geneva. What's worst is that some of the people being nasty to these women appear to be Iranian themselves. It's rather embarassing and concerning. These ladies from Iran are not saying anything wrong. They are not saying anything other than what they practice and beleive. There's absolutely nothing wrong with what they said. In fact, the main speaker was right on all the points she was addressing. Anyways, I think some people,unfortunately Iranians too (as we see it in this video) are so politically brainwashed that they cannot even bring themselves to respect other people's rights, opinions, and feelings.
  13. They can kill a scientist but they cant kill the concept of right vs wrong. Right will prevail, Israel will be brought to book for 63 years of murder, theft, dispossession, ethnic cleansing and terrorism. Iran should make it number one priority to kick Zionists out of the middle east.
  14. Look, I don’t know who translated the video but clearly the translation sucks… If Sheikh Nasrollah is saying that Iran is not the enemy of the Arabs and Sunnis because it is part of the same Islamic civilization, then that’s a different story. I do agree that the Persian culture is part of the Islamic civilization. And as we know it, the Islamic civilization encompasses the Arab world, Persian world, Indian world, Turkic and so on.
  15. I never said the Persian civilization is above Islam or above any other civilization, nor did I ever compare the persian civilization to the islamic one. All I am saying is that Iranians have not only a religious identity but they also have an ethnic identity. And I don’t see anything wrong with being both Muslim and Persian. There is plenty of Persian culture in Iran. It does exist and will continue to exist. We Iranians are proud of being part of both the Islamic civilization and the Persian culture. As far as the Persian civilization being jahiliya….please read, learn, research, think and then talk...
  16. Fire worshipers?!? a lot of arabs with anti-iranian sentiments associate Zoroastrianism/Persians with fire worshiping. Zoroastrianism is not about fire worshiping, in fact, it is a monotheistic religion. Also, if anyone considers him/herself Muslim exclusively, that is his/her choice; but then he/she is not by definition valuing iranian-ness valuable. These are personal decisions, but come with unavoidable consequences.
  17. Iranians are proud of their history whether its 4000 years old or 2400 years old. Some might see contradiction between the two, I don't. Every bit of our past history, belong to us, Iranians. Losing a culture is a pity, no matter what nation it belongs to. Let's not get paranoid, there is nothing wrong with acknowledging Iran's past and being proud of it. Islam does not say to forget about your culture and history! Islam DOES recognize nation as it recognizes Diversity! However, Islam is against racism and extreme forms of nationalism (look at how hitler was elected... democratically!). Even ahmadinejad praised Iran's pre-historic past by unveiling the Cyrus cylinder. He OPENLY and PUBLICLY defended our pre historic past! We need nationalism for our unity, even Ahmadinejad understands that! I personally believe that nationalism must go hand in hand with religion in this new outlook. Would it work? maybe yes, maybe no, but its a right step in the right direction. Khoda negahdar
  18. As far as the intent of sheikh Nasrollah's statements, it makes sense that he was addressing an Arab audience weary of the Persian Influence (perceived as a threat)….however, I still believe that his statements were offensive, provocative and inaccurate.
  19. Our culture has a written history and has lived in Iran for over 4000 years, and any attempt to extinguish that is HIGHLY offensive, and also provocative. Additionally, Iranians today still continue to identify themselves with their Persian heritage, and significant elements of Iranian culture extend as far back as seven millennia! Mr. Nasrollah is denying the current existence of the Persian culture in Iran, and that is unacceptable. As a nationalist-religious Iranian, I am proud of Iran's entire history - pre- and post-Islam. As a believer in an enlightened interpretation of Islamic teachings, I do agree that Islam is part of the Iranian's identity.
  20. Wow, he insulted the Iranian culture and civilization with what he said… Iran has been there for a long time and is going to stay forever. Our culture, history and the grand name of Persia are everlasting! We adopted Islam, and we defended it numerous times in our history, and we are proud of it! Anyways, God bless Persians, Arabs, Muslims, followers of other religions and humanity in general, may we witness a different world from the one we live in today… Peace
  21. Please refrain from accusing me of presenting conspiracy theories. That is highly offensive, inaccurate and provocative. I was simply expressing my opinion and you don’t have to agree with what I say! And I am certainly not trying to shove my views down anyone’s throat, unlike what you think. Peace
  22. yeah, you're right, you're not following anything im saying.. but anyways, peace/salam.
  23. Yes, it is just my opinion. I never claimed to have sources to back my opinion either. It is a public forum and I have the right to express my opinion as well. However, you chose to present inaccurate and faulty non-sense to dismiss my opinion. The accuracy of the survey you posted is very questionable for me. Imagine you're sitting in Iran and your phone rings. On the other end of the phone, there is someone who you have never heard of and who claims to be from a "foreign" agency conducting a "survey", and he/she wants to know your opinion about Ahmadinejad and the elections? What would be the thought that would go through the mind of the average Joe in Iran? I know that my first thought would be that this is a government trap to see whose side I'm on and come after me. So, I better give the right answer. Also, remember that these types of surveys have a purpose. Westerners will not question the accuracy of this survey. That is how most Westerners with their short attention span for processing information are going to conclude: that Iranians ALL love Ahmadinejad. The surveys' target audience will equate the Iranian people with Ahamdinejad. It's the perception that matters not reality. And people who organize these kinds of surveys have an agenda to exploit that perception even though it's a false one.
  24. I am always fasinated by these so-called surverys!!! Who pays for these surverys? Who does them? For what purpose? Who checks the results? What cross section of society allegedly participates in them? I for one don't believe in its accuracy. Also, did you know the survey was conducted over the telephone? It was a telephone survey. In other words, these kind of surveys, especially when conducted over the phone by unknown and non-trusted "foreign" agencies do not work in Iran. They don't work in Iran especially because the government accuses all opposition of being foreign spies and agents!! So, in order to accept the accuracy of this artcile, we will first have to jump over the hurdle of accepting that this so-called "survey" was accurate, which I don't think anyone in his / her right mind should accept. BTW, I dont watch fox news. What is that suppose to mean, anyways?
  25. Yes we can! I think the majority - perhaps not a big majority – do want a secular state in Iran now. Courtesy of the excesses of the current regime, there is a majority in favour of a secular government. And this is not the same as saying they don't want to be Muslims. The recent killing and injuring of innocent people in the streets of Iran is heartbreaking. As Muslims, we must denounce what has been a permanent shortcoming in Iran’s political culture and that is the use of violence to suppress freedom of speech and thought. Islam is connected to life, and is not indifferent to society and people. In fact, without respect for human beings, there is no Islam.
