  1. The Iranian Interior Ministry has released the final list of candidates qualified to run in the forthcoming presidential election. Iran’s Interior Ministry on Thursday night gave the following list of eligible candidates (in alphabetical order) vetted by the Guardian Council. Mostafa Aqa-Mirsalim Mostafa Hashemi-Taba Es'haq Jahangiri Mohammad-Baqer Qalibaf Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi Hassan Rouhani The vetting body was examining the qualifications of more than 1,600 candidates who registered to run for president for days. "We held the final session on examining the qualifications of the presidential election nominees today and fortunately reached a conclusion after five days of numerous sessions,” the council's spokesman, Abbas-Ali Kadkhodaei, said before releasing the final list. Here is a brief summary of the candidates’ backgrounds: Aqa-Mirsalim is a member of the Expediency Council. He used to be a senior aide to former President Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, and an ex-minister of culture and Islamic guidance, and a former caretaker of the Presidential Office. Hashemi-Taba was a vice president under former Presidents Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani and Mohammad Khatami, a former minister of industries, and the former head of the Sports Organization. Jahangiri, who currently serves as the first vice president, used to be the minister of mines and metals under Khatami, the governor of Isfahan, and a parliamentarian. Qalibaf, the mayor of Tehran, was a former commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps’ Air Force, an ex-chief of the national police, and a former commander of Iran’s Khatam al-Anbya Air Defense Base (formerly known as Khatam-al Anbiya Construction Headquarters). Raeisi is the chief custodian of Astan Quds Razavi, the organization managing the affairs of the Holy Shrine of Imam Reza (PBUH), the eighth Shia Imam, in the city of Mashhad. Besides performing in other positions, he used to function as the attorney general of Iran’s Administrative Court of Justice. Rouhani, the incumbent Iranian president, is a member of the Expediency Council and the Assembly of Experts, which appoints the country’s leader. The former posts he used to fill include membership of Majlis (Iranian Parliament) and headship of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council. The qualified candidates can now start election campaigning until 8 a.m. May 18, the Interior Ministry said in a statement. Disqualified among the high-profile aspirants were former two-time President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his former aide Hamid Baqaei. Earlier this month, the Iranian Judiciary spokesman said lawsuits filed against Ahmadinejad and Baqaei with regard to administrative violations were open and no final verdicts had been still given on them. Speaking to reporters on April 16, Gholam Hossein Mohseni-Ejei said the lawsuits were filed against Ahmadinejad in the capacity of president and have not yet led to the delivery of a verdict. A number of lawsuits have been filed with Iran's judicial officials after Ahmadinejad’s term in office concluded among which cases of malfeasance are more prominent. Out of major cases filed against the former president are three complaints by the Iranian Parliament’s Article 90 Commission. TO WHOM YOU WANT TO SEE AS PRESIDENT OF IRAN?

  4. Iran to determine where to hit aggressors: Top cmdr. Chief of Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Major General Mohammad Baqeri says it is up to the Islamic Republic to decide the targets of its counterstrikes against potential aggressors. Baqeri on Monday warned Iran's enemies against “any mistakes in calculation or [perpetration of] the smallest act of aggression against the establishment and the Muslim territory.” He said in the event such transgression takes place by the enemies, “[our] immediate, decisive, and crushing response in the points that we determine, will bring about their regret and defeat.” The comments came in the wake of aggressive remarks against Tehran by Saudi Deputy Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. http://217.218.67.231/Detail/2017/05/08/521018/Iran-Saudi-Arabia-Armed-Forces-Mohammad-Salman

  6. Declaration of war’: Russian MPs blast US plans to enforce N. Korea sanctions on foreign territory The realization of this [US] bill includes a proposed force scenario in which the US Navy would conduct compulsory inspections of all ships. Such a scenario is simply unthinkable because it means a declaration of war,” RIA Novosti quoted upper house Committee for International Relations head Konstantin Kosachev as saying. What immediately draws attention is the list of nations where US congressmen want to have special control over sea ports,” he said. “These are Russia, China, Iran and Syria. The United States is again trying to expand its jurisdiction all over the globe. It is as if they were telling Russia, China, Iran and Syria that these nations are suspects in crime, which is nonsense, according to international law.” https://www.rt.com/politics/387256-declaration-of-war-senator-blasts/
  7. Asked if Saudi Arabia was ready to open a direct dialogue with Tehran, Mohammed said it was impossible to talk with a power that was planning for the return of the Imam Mahdi - whom Shi'ites believe was a descendent of the Prophet who went into hiding 1,000 years ago and will return to establish global Islamic rule before the end of the world. "How do you have a dialogue with this (Iran)?" Mohammed said in clips of the interview posted on social media. "Its (Iran's) logic is that the Imam Mahdi will come and they must prepare the fertile environment for the arrival of the awaited Mahdi and they must control the Muslim world." https://www.google.ca/amp/mobile.reuters.com/article/amp/idUSKBN17Y1FK
  8. Assalamu Alaikom So, the general story is that the army of the Sufyani will start in Syria, take over until the east of Iraq, and the ground will swallow them. Sounds like ISIS. The Yamani will rise with a white banner out of Yemen and will call people to truth. Sounds like Ansar Allah. I know the Sufyani, Yamani and Khorasani rise at the same time. Does anyone know who the Khorasani could be? They rise on the same day. On August 18 2014, the Houthi takeover of Yemen began. On August 18 2014, the war between ISIS and the US escalated to a point where the Mosul Dam area was being bombed, and ISIS had spread to Libya. Who could be the Khorasani?
  9. Asslamoalaikum, Just to make the Shia leadership and Shia population of an emerging media threat for them in Pakistan. Wesal Tv is creating religious/sectarian hatred against Shia Muslims in Pakistan but do not you worry PEMRA is sleeping.

  12. I am having a discussion In Shia, Muslim, Multifaith Discussion Group [https://www.facebook.com/groups/928589737209147/] in relation to Iran and the situation in Kashmir. All are welcome to join and state their points. I have asked a Press Tv journalist, and am in the midst of asking another journalist that both may have different sides (as requested because the person was blaming Iran said I am bias in supporting the enemy of Muslims [India]). This is the news that I have gathered so far and this was the status (please correct me if I am wrong): One of the comments on this status were: JazakAllah kheir for your contribution.
  13. Salam. At first I want to say thank you for accept me in this forum. I'm trying to get a better understanding about Shia Islam, and have many doubts. This is one: As I understand Ayatollah Khomeini drove a political revolution which was inseparable of spiritual goals. As I read before enter into political arena Khomeini was in Quom studing many things, also philosophy and mystic knowledge ('irfan). And when he became leader of the social and politic transformation of Iran this knowledge guided him. Is right? But, I see in different shia places (websites, blogs, etc) that today the anti western feelings are dominant, and the spiritual goals are not so clear. For example: Some shia people likes cuban revolution (Fidel Castro's revolution) and North Korea government because they are anti west. My problem about that is this: Castro and Kim (North Korea leader) are declared atheistic men. So those revolutions really have nothing to do with a spiritual revolution as Khomeini made. Those are or were materialistic revolutions... then, perhaps those are farest from iran's spirit than many western people. So, I ask you: the politicization of Shia Islam has not diverted (at least in part) the course of revolution? I am asking it with genuine good willing. I'm not trying to deny shia values. Is a real doubt. So, please do not take it as a lack of respect. If can give some light about that I'll be thankful.
  14. The supreme leader of Iran Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei(ha) stated: "We thank Trump for exposing the reality of the U.S." Read the full statement here: http://english.khamenei.ir/news/4617/We-thank-Trump-for-exposing-the-reality-of-the-U-S-Ayatollah
  15. Friends Let us try to analyze the basis on which the list of 7 countries was framed, the list banning people from US shores. In my view, here are some of the points worth considering. 1. Countries which are full of terrorists, such as Pakistan and Afghanistan, were excluded. Why? Well, it is common knowledge that Pakistan is a US puppet. And with massive US presence in Afghanistan, strategically, it may not be a very good idea to provoke Afghanistan at this point. 2. Countries which embody and promote the ideology that produces terrorists, such as Saudi Arabia were excluded. Why? Because Saudi Arabia is helping the US achieve its imperialist goals in the Middle East. And possibly because Saudi Arabia is rumored to have arrived at a secret pact with Israel against Iran. Qatar is also a US puppet., as are all Gulf principalities, solely interested in the countless dollars that flow from their oil. Saudi Arabia has been equipped with the finest in weaponry, by both the US and Britain, which it has used extensively to subdue poverty-stricken Yemen. And let us not forget that all (or most) of the terrorists in the biggest single episode of terrorism (the iconic 9/11) were Saudi nationals, not from any other country. Osama bin Laden himself was a Saudi. 3. Most terrorists are people with some sympathy for al Qaida or ISIS, And that ideology comes from Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia was born from the womb of terrorism, when the Saudis overran the land just short of 100 years ago. In fact, Saudi Arabia and ISIS have exactly the same ideology, except that the Saudis are the first cab off the rank. And they do not wish to lose the crown and trillions of dollars to ISIS. So Saudi Arabia being excepted from the ban is clear evidence that fear of terrorism is NOT the reason for the ban. 4.Turkey has produced a large number of terrorists in the recent past. But Turkey was not in the list. After all, how could a NATO ally be in the list, regardless how much terrorism there is in that country. 5. And now the big surprise! Countries with an enviable record of containing terrorist activity, such as Iran were included. If my memory serves me right, if all the instances of terror around the world in the last 20 years were to be listed, not one single episode can be traced to Iran. Or if I may have missed something in the news, Iran would definitely be at the bottom of the list. Yet Iran was listed. 6. Now let us think - why exactly was Iran in the list? Was it because the US has not yet fully avenged itself for being booted out of Iran in 1953 and then again in 1980? Or because Iran has refused to recognized Israel as a legitimate baby? Quite possibly both. And that is the whole point. If an imperialist power believes that Israel is a legitimate child, how could anyone dare to differ? If God's own country desires that every nation MUST accept that view, how could anyone support a different view? Imperialism redux! Accept what the master says or he will destroy you! Voltaire must be turning in his grave at the abuse of freedom of opinion but no freedom of opinion is allowed there. Absolutely none! All slaves (aka allies) must obey the master and ditto his views and opinions. Otherwise, they will be branded as the axis of evil. to paraphrase, George Bush the younger. 7. The US has a history of making friends with bad boys just like Mafia bosses have always enlisted murderers and hoodlums. (a) It developed Osama into becoming Osama until Osama was annoyed by US bases in Saudi Arabia and turned against them. (b) It used Saddam to build its power in the region. TIME magazine once quoted a US official as saying "Saddam is a SOB but he is our SOB". In other words, he is a horrible man, of course, but he serves our purpose. And that is all that matters. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In summary therefore, its is clear that the basis for the list of 7 was not the fear of terrorist activity but the game of political and imperialist chess. Are you willing to work for me as a slave? Don't feel embarrassed. I won't call you a slave. You will be known as an ally. If you are willing, then I will have to work out how useful you could be to me. After all, an evil slave who is blindly obedient to the master is more useful than one who chooses ethics over his master's wishes. The latter will not help the master in his evil goals and needs to be ejected from his circle of trusted aides. And that is all that matters - not morals and not ethics. And that is why Saudi Arabia was excluded and Iran was included in that infamous list. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The US was a good country until 1945 when it was suddenly pushed into the limelight. And as we all know, the limelight tends to make one lose one's head and that, in my view, is what has happened. There are good Americans and there are bad Americans just as there are good and bad people all over the world. But most of the world has tended to treat the ever more powerful US as a god. They have followed the American entertainment industry in promoting promiscuity and godlessness, instead of promoting Christian values. And that was a very big mistake. In matters of sex, the world is clearly going bonkers, thanks to the way shown by Hollywood and its ilk. If Western nations had turned to Christ, whom they have effectively abandoned, instead of the US for their values, it would be restored to its previous place in a matter of minutes. Christianity would prevail over the doctrine of hedonism which has taken hold of our senses. Likewise, non-Christian countries must also revive their own values embodied in the teachings of Buddhism, Confucius, Hinduism, Islam etc. instead of following the US blindly. We teach our children how to make money but we never encourage them to try and live by the teachings of their faith. For God's sake, let us get away from the mirage of the powerful elephant, which is destroying our world. Let us seek comfort in the teachings and values of religion, not of powerful and rich nations. Wealth and power belong to God alone. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- If we turned away from the worldly goals of wealth and pleasure, I think, the world could be a much better place. A planet of true peace like none other in the solar system and beyond. Until then, I believe, we must learn to live in a very uncertain world, ruled by a puerile despot, that the US has become.
  16. Could somebody knowedgable here tell me what this is? i found it on twitter.What is this in regards to? is this something thats happening now? by the way the people who know what this actually please really answer.
  17. hello, I'd like to know if most of iranians are atheists or believers, and if young people believe in iran, someone knows? some people here have said that most of people that live in iran do believe in islam. thank you.
  18. Salam, Have you ever thought why the flag of truth will be with the yemani, and not with the khorasani? Both are devoted ahlulbayt lovers. My guess is because Iran turned into an some sort of papal state, and they embraced welayet - faqeh institution, which i regard as a step in the wrong direction and an innovation. What is your opinion?
  19. ASA I am from Pakistan and I want to make new friends from Iran. anyone willing to be my friend here?
  20. Salam all, Just finished my sixth vlog on Youtube called "Can Iran Still Trust Russia?" which deals with the purchase of the S-300 system and Russia's attitude vis-a-vis Iran. Let me know what you think. Watch it here: More detailed description of the video: After nine years, Russia delivered Almaz-Antey's S300 missile to Iran in April, 2016. But why the delay? Find out here. The political détente between Iran and Russia began in 1989. In that year, Russian Foreign Minister Shevardnadze met Ayatollah Khomeini after the Soviet pullout in Afghanistan. A few months later, president Rafsanjani met with Mikhail Gorbachev to discuss cooperation on the use of peaceful atomic energy. These series of meetings spawned atomic cooperation agreements to be signed in 1992. The Soviet Union's weakness and its ultimate dissolution accelerated calls within Russia to revive Russia's nuclear industry abroad. From the mid-2000s, both countries had seen relations deteriorate. In Iran, the deregulation of the Khatami administration shifted towards an autarky-minded Ahmadinejad government insisting on Iran autonomously developing a full nuclear cycle. Russia's buildup after the Soviet collapse left it desperate to maintain Iran as a purchasing market. The Russians provided Iran with light-water nuclear reactors (LWRS) in 1992, the Bushehr plant was reconstructed through a $1 billion contract in 1995 and other side agreements included the negotiated delivery of a gas-centrifuge uranium enrichment facility. With the prospects of an increasingly independent Iran ahead and rapprochement with Washington, Russia decided to punish the Iranians through various international mechanisms. The delay of the S300 therefore serves as a case study illuminating the selfish economic interests of two states on the one hand, and the indifference by Russia to enhance regional security on the other.
  21. Flat Earth Model Belief assumed earth was completely flat Day and night could not happen simultaneously Earth fixed and sun orbiting the earth Myths were ripe surrounding where the sun set and rose from Model could only support a single sunrise and sunset point Model could not support different time zones across the world Spherical Earth Model Earth is almost spherical with a few minor exceptions around the poles Earth orbits the SUN Earth is spinning to give us day and night simultaneously SUN is static relative to the earth Each point on earth has its own sunrise and sunset point Different time zones supported across the world Before I present the verses of the Quran that describes the earth, I will start of with the following verse. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:3) We verily, have made it a Qur'ân in Arabic, that you may be able to understand (its meanings and its admonitions). This verse is clearly telling us that the Quran is meant to be easily understood and not what Dr Naik assumes, by taking us around the universe. Galaxies were not understood at the time the Quran was revealed and hence would have confused the people at the time. Also, as you will notice, all suras I have pointed out were revealed in Makkah, at a time when the prophet was under immense pressure to explain every verse of the Quran clearly. Naik is using fallacy and creating his own science in the Quran. These are the Descriptive verses Sura Al-Kahf (18:47) And (remember) the Day We shall cause the mountains to pass away (like clouds of dust), and you will see the earth as a levelled plain, and we shall gather them all together so as to leave not one of them behind. Sura Taha (20:53) Who has made earth for you like a bed (spread out); and has opened roads (ways and paths etc.) for you therein; and has sent down water (rain) from the sky. And We have brought forth with it various kinds of vegetation. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:10) Who has made for you the earth like a bed, and has made for you roads therein, in order that you may find your way. Sura Az-Zukhruf (43:38) Till, when (such a one) comes to Us, he says [to his Qarîn (Satan / devil companion)] "Would that between me and you were the distance of the two easts (or the east and west)" a worst (type of) companion (indeed)! Sura An-Naba (78:6) Have We not made the earth as a bed, Sura An-Naziat (79:30) And after that He spread the earth; These verses would only be applicable to a flat earth belief Sura An-Naml (27:61) Is not He (better than your gods) Who has made the earth as a fixed abode, and has placed rivers in its midst, and has placed firm mountains therein, and has set a barrier between the two seas (of salt and sweet water).Is there any ilâh (god) with Allâh? Nay, but most of them know not. Sura Al-Kahf (18:86) Until, when he reached the setting place of the sun, he found it setting in a spring of black muddy (or hot) water. And he found near it a people. We (Allâh) said (by inspiration): "O Dhul-Qarnain! Either you punish them, or treat them with kindness." Sura Al-Kahf (18:90) Until, when he came to the rising place of the sun, he found it rising on a people for whom We (Allâh) had provided no shelter against the sun. Sura Yasin (36:38) And the sun runs on its fixed course for a term (appointed). That is the Decree of the All-Mighty, the All-Knowing. Sura Yasin (36:40) It is not for the sun to overtake the moon, nor does the night outstrip the day. They all float, each in an orbit. All these verses support a Flat earth model that the Quran is describing. I strongly encourage you to read these Suras in their entirety, to prove to yourself that I have not taken or used any verse out of context. If you feel that I have missed any verses which describe or support a spherical model, please provide me the verses from the Quran. Any imaginations not supported by a verse from the Quran will NOT be acceptable.
  22. I am Syed Abbas Ali and belongs to the family of Imam Jafar Sadiq. Basically My grand father had lost a major portion of our shajrah while migrating to Pakistan, and only a part containing 10 generations before me is left with him. None of his children (my uncles and my father) tried to complete it and he died when I was 2. My Far related grandfather (3rd Cousin to my grandfather) told me that My grandfather did tried to get the whole Shajrah back but was failed in this attempt as those of our relative in India and Lahore refused to provide us with that in fear of some sort of Property. Actually he is the one who told me that we belonged to Syed Qutb descendants who was descendant of Imam Jafar Saddiq and came from Iran or Afghanistan. My grandfather used to live in Jabalpur before seperation and his ancestors in Meeranpur, Jansath Tehsil, India. I tried to look back those Syeds in Meeranpur but found that They were Zaidis. Now I am totally Confused. I looked at a complete shajrah of Zaidis but couldn't find my ancestors name in it so we definitely belong to Jafris. "Syed Abbas s/o Syed Akhtar s/o Syed Aashiq s/o Syed Amjad s/o Syed Hasan s/o Syed Qasim s/o Syed Ameen s/o Syed Lal s/o Syed Dadan s/o Syed Qasim----- Syed Qutb (not mentioned but told to me)" Do anyone know Any book which has a complete shajrah of Jafris?? like those of Zaidis named "Shajrah Saadat e Barha"?? I am very Hopeful that you'll surely help me out. One thing I like to mention is that I'm a Sunni as my ancestors converted to Sunnism due to Taqiyya but many traditions and beliefs of Shia still exist in my family today. Please Anyone Help me.
