  1. Atheism: A Non-believing Shi'i’s Perspective Both my grandmothers were believing Twelver Shi'i Muslims (Ithna Asharis). One of them performed the five daily prayers every day of her life, always wore a flowery headscarf to cover her hair and the other fitted her pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj) in her travel itinerary around the world. Despite five-six decades of age difference my grandmothers did share my belief in the removal of religion, militarism, inequality, greed and corruption from the state. Perhaps because I have now become a mother I now realize how much we have learned from our mothers and grandmothers. Much has changed in our lives and in moral and normative configurations from one generation to another. I am an atheist, an anti-racist feminist, a non-believing Shi’i. To me being an atheist does mean respecting religiously devout and pious people, most of whom are our own family members, friends, students, colleagues and neighbors. I write about atheism because I want to separate it from secular fanaticism, especially of the Islamophobic sort championed by Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Bill Maher et al, who are as hateful and dogmatic as the minority they claim to oppose in the name of freedom and democracy. I believe that religious states are dictatorial and abusive because of the male elite who hold onto power and formulate ideologies that uses and abuses already deeply patriarchal religions. The more agonized a region, the more extremist does such ideologies and practices become (the Judaism of Israeli settlers in the Occupied Territories is a clear example of this). As the daughter of Iranian refugees who fled their homeland because of a repressive and selectively “religious” state, I believe ignorant trashing of peoples’ religious beliefs is morally and ethically wrong. It is also discriminatory, dangerous, racist and can ultimately lead to violence. One can never judge or assume that a person or even a group is oppressed OR oppressive based solely on their religion and more commonly these days by their external appearances. Women, children and even grown men are tragically abused with or without wearing a headscarf, or a sheitel, a yarmulke, the choir dress, a wimple, a cape, an apron, a bonnet, the saffron robe, or a turban. So before categorically belittling, humiliating and/or discriminating against religious, pious or spiritual folks, I suggest self-righteous atheists (among whom also resides the good, the bad, and the ugly) get themselves educated, read good books, travel, interact with diverse groups of people to learn about our world and the underlying reasons for the troubles in it (poverty, patriarchy, geopolitics, militarism etc)—This definitely means laying off searching Google for easy answers in the violent passages found in the Bible, the Talmud or the Qur’an. For the Iranian constituency of secular fundamentalists, I recommend they try remembering the religion of their grandparents, their kind neighbors, their local grocers, medieval and modern poets and stop applying their own very specific historical, class-based, Iran-centered experiences on millions of people across the globe.

  2. Iran art exhibition uses culture to bridge Middle East divides Rare show of bonhomie in a region blighted by conflict and rivalries November 11, 2016 by: Najmeh Bozorgmehr in Tehran The Land of the Solidities, an abstract oil painting of a fully veiled Arab woman by Mounirah Mosly, a Saudi artist, hangs near an untiled piece by the late Sohrab Sepehri, one of Iran’s best known poets and painters. The fact that the works are displayed at the same exhibition in Tehran provides a rare show of bonhomie in a region blighted by conflict and bitter rivalries. For Iran the event is unique — it is the first time that the predominantly Persian state has hosted such a public display of Arab art. The organisers touted it as an opportunity to use culture to bridge some of the regional divides, and it is notable that two works from Saudi Arabia — Iran’s regional foe — are on the display. Karim Sultan, curator at the Sharjah-based Barjeel Art Foundation that put on The Sea Suspended exhibition, says the exhibition is about “continuing the conversation with the Arab world.” Ehsan Rasoulof, the director of Mohsen Gallery, one of Iran’s avant-garde art galleries, concurs, saying art should transcend the Middle East’s problems. “In this crisis-hit region where we live, an art dialogue is the responsibility of artists, despite all the tensions between us and our neighbours,” Mr Rasoulof says. Riyadh cut diplomatic ties with the Islamic republic in January after its embassy in Tehran was ransacked by Iranian hardliners protesting against the Saudi government’s execution of a dissident Shia cleric. Iran and Saudi Arabia — the region’s dominant Shia and Sunni powers respectively — back rival sides in conflicts in Syria and Yemen as they fight proxy wars, and are blamed for stoking sectarian tensions across the Arab world. In the volatile environment, Sadegh Kharrazi, a renowned Iranian art collector and a former ambassador to the UN and France, says culture can be a tool of diplomacy. The exhibition — held at the state-run Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art — was “a step forward for helping make people in the region closer to each other,” he says. “Tensions should decrease and artists are well-positioned to fill the gap between people in the region and politicians,” he adds. The exhibition includes 40 paintings covering a period from the 1940s to 1990s by Arab artists from countries including Egypt, Morocco, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates and Algeria. There are an equal number of Iranian pieces on display. The theme of the exhibition reflects on the emergence of abstract Arab art and the artists’ experiences of everyday life. It is being held at a time when President Hassan Rouhani’s centrist government is seeking to repair the nation’s image and re-engage with the world following its landmark nuclear agreement last year that saw many western sanctions on the Islamic republic lifted. Yet not all share the government’s enthusiasm for culture. Regime hardliners — based in the elite Revolutionary Guards, the judiciary and the clergy — have put increasing pressure on Mr Rouhani to keep a lid on cultural freedom. Their resistance forced the president to dismiss his pro-reform culture minister, Ali Jannati, last month. It is not yet clear yet if the pressure will cause the government to be more restrictive in the cultural sphere as the country gears up for elections next year, with Mr Rouhani hoping to secure a second term. Mr Kharrazi, a pro-reform politician, says Mr Rouhani “has no intention to restrict cultural developments”. And for now, the decisions taken under the former culture minister appear to be continuing. Iran will send 30 works from its large collection of western modern artists to be exhibited at Berlin’s Gemäldegalerie museum in December, and then to the MAXXI museum in Rome, where they will be on display until August 2017. It is the first time the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art has allowed some of the more than 1,500 western artworks it owns go on display outside the republic. They were bought before the 1979 Islamic revolution on the orders of Queen Farah, wife of the last Shah of Iran. The collection remains the most valuable western visual art collection outside Europe and North America, Iranian experts say, with the largest element being post-second world war works by US expressionist artists, including Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. But the nuclear accord, which came into effect in January, was not sealed in time for an exhibition in the US, says Majid Mollanorouzy, director of the Tehran museum. “We decided to choose countries with which we have less political tensions,” he says. This article has been updated to reflect the fact that Barjeel Art is based in Sharjah not Dubai.

  4. Salaam all, As we reflect on the tragic events 1400 years ago due to the dictator in Damascus, let us ponder on the inconvenient but truth of tragic events of today from the dictator of Damascus today. Yazid wanted his power at all costs even if it meant killing Imam Husain (as) and his family members. Like 70 of the Prophet's descendants killed by Yazid, perhaps thousands of the Prophet's descendants have been killed among the up to 500,000 Syrians killed by Assad who also wants to keep power at all costs. So sad that Iran has been instrumental in continuing to support this mass murdering war criminal. And sad that Iran wants to keep Assad's family in power although this sect is outside of Islam since their doctrine is that Imam Ali (s) is God (astaghfirullah, astaghriullah, astaghrifullah). May we all pray for peace in Syria so the efforts of the Syrian people who went to the streets for democracy is answered by Allah. May the region be protected from the terrorists of ISIS and other terrorists and may it also be free of the continued tyranny of Assad and his family who is receiving massive and continued support of Iran, Hezbollah, Iraq militia members, and Russia in killing Syrian civilians and making life for Syrians a living monstrosity. Sometimes the truth is inconvenient but as Muslims, we must acknowledge the truth and speak out or at least pray to Allah for forgiveness for our sectarian and political weaknesses in pointing out the truth. And may we pray for Allah to grant justice to all and to grant everyone knowledge, forgiveness, mercy, goodness, and the commitment to justice and courage so as to accept truths no matter how inconvenient they are. May we fully return to the only source that is fully authentic, the guidance of Allah in the Qur'an that he sent down to us all. May we not allow secondary and partially corrupted Islamic sources and politically rabid and sectarian leaders and mobs to dilute the truth that is in the Qur'an. Ameen.
  5. Salam 1. Do Shias do shirk and why? 2. Are the imams more worth than the prophet in a Shias eye and why? 3. WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT ISLAMIC SHARIA LAW IN DIFFERNET COUNTRIES 4.

  6. Iranian warships deployed off Yemen coast after US bombs Houthi targets Iran has deployed a fleet of warships to the Gulf of Aden, the republic's naval commander has confirmed. The deployment follows US cruise missile strikes on Yemeni positions thought to be under Houthi rebel control. https://www.rt.com/news/362643-iran-warships-yemen-aden/
  7. Iranian ships in Gulf of Aden: How far might Yemen escalation go? RT: Now there are Iranian warships in the Gulf of Aden. How far might this escalation over Yemen go? Sayed Mohammad Marandi: I don’t think this is all that important. The Iranians have a permanent presence in that part of the world because of the problems with shipping thanks to the American policies over the past few decades. There is a lot of instability in the Red Sea. And the Iranian ships are there basically to prevent pirates from boarding Iranian ships. They’ve been doing this for a number of years now. The Iranians have also protected the ships of other countries as well. The problem really is the US presence. Iranians are confident the Americans are lying about missile attacks on American vessels. They say this is a fabricated story that the US could enter the fray on behalf of Saudi Arabia to boost Saudi morale. Because after all the Saudis after bombing weddings, funerals, schools and hospitals despite the fact that the Western media is completely silent about it and Western leaders like Boris Johnson don’t seem to care about the Yemenis who are being massacred in the country. But despite all that the Saudis are losing the war. They have lost the war. And the Yemeni resistance, the Houthis and Ansar Allah and the Yemeni army they have succeeded in defeating Saudi-backed forces and Saudi forces on the border between Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The Iranians feel that their presence is one to help facilitate trade and shipping while the American presence as in the past few decades is only serving to create further chaos. RT: Isn’t it a danger here that now both sides will see each other as a threat?I MM: The Iranians believe that the Americans have already lost the war in Yemen. Their support for Saudi Arabia has failed. And the Americans are just as responsible for the atrocities in Yemen as is the Saudi regime. The American president has blood on his hands just like the Saudi King, Crown Prince and the Deputy Crown Prince. The Iranians feel the Americans are not really in a position to escalate further. What they want to do is put pressure on Ansar Allah so that the Saudis could negotiate from a stronger position. And also I think in order to increase pressure on the US after the Saudi regime deliberately targeted the funeral killing 150 people and injuring hundreds more. A lot of people in the West have been increasingly protesting in the media and otherwise against America’s support for the Wahhabi regime https://www.rt.com/op-edge/362805-iran-us-yemen-saudi-gulf/
  8. The conflict in Syria is part of Washington’s prime goal to impose global hegemony, President Bashar Assad told a Russian newspaper. Terrorists in Syria, he said, are being used by the US and its Gulf allies to assert control over the region, primarily to weaken Iran. In the Syrian conflict, the US is using terrorists to achieve its own and its allies’ objectives in the wider Middle East, the main goal of which is to weaken Damascus’ regional ally – Iran. In 2011, when the Syrian conflict began, world powers were negotiating with Iran over its atomic enrichment program. “It was the main issue around the world, and Syria has to convince Iran to go against its interests, that time. France tried, Saudi Arabia wanted us at that time to be away from Iran with no reason, just because they hate Iran,”Assad said, adding that Damascus received offers to that end after the conflict started in Syria. “The offers [from Saudi Arabia] started after the crisis ... because they wanted to use the crisis ... 'if you do this, we're going to help you'... that if you move away from Iran and you announce that you disconnect all kinds of relations with Iran, we’re going to help you. Very simple and very straight to the point,”the Syrian leader said. https://www.rt.com/news/362720-us-hegemony-terrorism-assad/

  10. Saudi Arabia, allies no match for Iran on battlefield: Commander Iran's chief Armed Forces spokesman says Saudi Arabia and its allies are too weak to engage in a military confrontation with the Islamic Republic. “Saudi Arabia has by no means the capability to confront Iran and [in fact] not only Saudi Arabia, but its allies are also incapable of confrontation with the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Deputy Chief of Staff of Iran's Armed Forces, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri, said in response to a question by reporters on Monday. He added that Saudi Arabia “counts for nothing [against Iran] and is no match for the Islamic Republic of Iran in the region to aspire entering military scenes.” “The Americans also lack such a capability and will,” the Iranian commander pointed out. http://presstv.com/Detail/2016/10/10/488458/Iran-Saudi-Arabia-US-Armed-Forces-Massoud-Jazayeri
  11. http://www.aparat.com/v/ps1xy/الله_الله_نوحه_متفاوت_هیئت_کوچه_بیوک_یزدمحسن_زاده Salam Many of my friends found this Noha so nice and touching but I found it an irrelevant and not appropriate Noha. I just don't understand why they chose such an irrelevant poem. Just listen to the singer!!! when he sings: "you should go under the rain!" it is a part of a poem written by "Sohrab Sepehri" who is a contemporary poet and has nothing to do with Muharram or even religion.
  12. Is there anyone here from Iran I want to ask things from him/her.
  13. I dont know this person nor am I affiliated with this in any way. The date has already passed but they might accommodate.

  15. Women in Iran defy fatwa by riding bikes in public 21 September 2016 From the sectionMiddle East Share Image copyrightFACEBOOK / MY STEALTHY FREEDOM Women in Iran have been posting photos on social media of themselves riding bicycles, defying a fatwa forbidding them from cycling in public. It had been understood women that could cycle as long as religious concerns were respected. But when asked recently, Iran's Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, said women were not allowed to cycle in public or in the presence of strangers. The issue came into focus earlier this year, when campaigners in Iran began marking "car-free Tuesdays" to encourage people to leave their cars at home in the hope of cutting down on pollution. When women were seen taking part in campaign bike rides, it was frowned upon by some Iranian clerics. Now, Iranian women have been using social media to highlight the subject, adding the hashtag #IranianWomenLoveCycling. Image copyrightFACEBOOK / MY STEALTHY FREEDOM Campaigning women A video a mother and daughter filmed of themselves cycling in Iran has had 98,000 views since it was posted on My Stealthy Freedom's Facebook page on Monday. Campaign founder Masih Alinejad, who is based in New York, said: "They told me that they are not going to give up because they think biking is their absolute right. Image copyrightINSTAGRAM / MY STEALTHY FREEDOM "It is absolutely shameful to hear such a backward fatwa against women in the 21st Century. "It is unacceptable in 2016 when you hear that a group of female cyclists have been arrested in Iran for the crime of riding a bike in a public place and made to sign a pledge promising they will not cycle in public again. "I called on women through my Instagram account to share their reaction, and I received so many photos and videos of women cycling." Image copyrightINSTAGRAM / MY STEALTHY FREEDOM "I've received messages from inside Iran from women who are shocked and want to protest." In another video, a female cyclist is seen saying some men had said some "nasty things" about her as she had ridden past them. Ms Alinejad said: "The activity does not have a defined penalty in Iran's legal code, but modesty laws are used against women who cycle in public. "Women in Iran want to be active in society - but, for the clerics, that's a big threat because, in their eyes women, should not be seen or heard but stuck in the kitchen. "It is our basic right to be able to freely cycle. "I strongly believe that these acts will bring change. "Women are the main agents of change, and as they push for equality, we see greater push back from the Islamic Republic [of Iran]. "The fight for equality is a historical process, and just in the same way that women succeeded in Europe and the US to win their rights, so will women in Iran."

  16. From the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games official website: Statement on Iranian cyclist Bahman Golbarnezhad 17.09.2016 The cyclist passed away earlier today following a crash during the C4 cycling road race at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games It is with deep sadness and regret that the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) confirms the death of the Iranian Para cyclist Bahman Golbarnezhad following an accident in this morning’s (17 September) road race at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Golbarnezhad, 48, was involved in a crash at around 10:40am on the first section of the Grumari loop, a mountainous stretch of the course. The athlete received treatment at the scene and was in the process of being taken to the athlete hospital when he suffered a cardiac arrest. The ambulance then diverted to the nearby Unimed Rio Hospital in Barra where he passed away soon after arrival. The athlete’s family who are in Iran was informed this afternoon and the Iranian team was brought together in the Athlete Village earlier this evening and told of the news. Sir Philip Craven, IPC President, said: “This is truly heart-breaking news and the thoughts and condolences of the whole Paralympic Movement are with Bahman’s family, friends, and teammates as well as the whole of the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) of Iran. “The Paralympic Family is united in grief at this horrendous tragedy which casts a shadow over what have been great Paralympic Games here in Rio.” Carlos Nuzman, President of Rio 2016, said: “This is very sad news for sport and for the Paralympic movement. Our hearts and prayers are with Bahman’s family, his teammates and all the people of Iran.” Brian Cookson, UCI President, said: “I am devastated to hear about the death of Iranian rider Bahman Golbarnezhad. Our thoughts are with his family and friends, and the NPC of Iran to whom we offer our most sincere condolences.” Following Golbarnezhad‘s passing the Iranian Flag has been lowered to half-mast in the Paralympic Village. The Paralympic flag will also be flown at half-mast in the Paralympic Village and at the Rio Centro venue where Iran on Sunday (18 September) will play Bosnia and Herzegovina in the sitting volleyball gold medal match. During tomorrow’s Closing Ceremony a moment of silence will be held. An investigation into the circumstances of the accident has been launched. This was Golbarnezhad’s second race at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. On Wednesday (14 September) he took part in the time trial C4 race finishing 14th. He also participated at the London 2012 Paralympic Games and took up the sport in 2002. The IPC and Rio 2016 will stage a press conference at the Olympic Aquatics Centre media centre at 20:30 this evening.
  17. I don't know whether this was posted here before or not, so if repetitive, forgive me for sharing it . This was made in memory of those who died by the missile of US navy force to the none military Iranian airplane, which was intentionally because the commander of the battle ship which did it was awarded with medal of honor(dishonor)
  18. Can someone confirm if the news article that I'm ready below is propaganda, made up anti-iran stuff? And if its not, can someone clarify the bold below? If it did happen, is there proper justification? In reference to one of the worst mass executions in the modern history of the Middle East, being carried by the government officials, Montazri stated that “So, now, without their having carried out any new activities (the prisoners), we execute them. This means that all of us screwed up, our entire judicial system is wrong”. He talks about a 15 years old girl being executed because she liked her brother who was also executed. Amnesty International estimates that in the summer of 1988, the overall number of people executed were 4,500. Some estimates reach as high as over 30,000 people. He adds “In Esfahan, a pregnant woman was among them [those massacred]. In Esfahan they executed a pregnant woman.... [In clerical jurisprudence] one must not execute a woman even if she is a mohareb (enemy of God). “I reminded [the Supreme Leader] of this, but he said they must be executed. In the month of Moharram, at least in the month of Moharram, the month of God and the Prophet, it shouldn’t be like this. At least feel some shame before Imam Hussein. Cutting off all meetings and suddenly engaging in such butchery, dragging them out and Bang! Bang!!! Does this happen anywhere in the world? ...” Montazeri’s audio points to one of the worst crimes against humanity committed in modern history and it continues to occur. It points to the means that the government uses to control the population and silence opposition. It also points to the interconnectedness of Shiite Islam, power and authoritarianism, and it points to the dominance of the IRGC, intelligence, Khamenei and their loyalists.

  20. 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
  21. Hi everyone, Brother @sakura1994 recently posted an entry on how can Islam benefit a country like Japan, and his post inspired me to write a similar post on how Islam can benefit Iran. You see, Iran has a unique culture which traces back to thousands of years. The people of Iran are wonderful and lovely, and they deserve to be exposed Islam. Islam was indeed once the predominant religion of Iran, up until this century. However, today the majority of Iranians are non-practising Muslims. Perhaps as many as 50-70% of Iranians are non-practising. I think that Islam is very much compatible with Iranian culture and society. The Iranian people need Islam now more than ever! What do you guys think? How can Islam benefit a country like Iran? A country in which Islam is rapidly declining.
  22. Why is it so surprising that 2 different people have seen lots of anti Islamic iranians ?? I'm guessing most members here are arabs and south asians. Have you guys met persians in real life ? If you live in North America then go talk to young persians and they will all say that once old generation die iran won't be Islamic anymore and how arabs destroyed persian civilization haha. What drives me mad is that they always use bad words for Allah and think they're white (even though theyre just light brown and not even lightest in their own country). I've only met 1 Islamic iranian and he is azeri (turk) Btw I have nothing against shia muslims.
  23. Hi all, This poll from 2013 conducted in Iran by Pew Forum found that a staggering 83% of Iranians support Sharia in the country. Is this true? Wow! I am shocked that so many Iranians support Sharia in the country and only a mere 15% oppose it. http://www.pewforum.org/2013/06/11/iranians-views-mixed-on-political-role-for-religious-figures/ @magma @Ibn Sina @repenter @ChattingwithShias @Mohammad-Ali @kamyar @baradar_jackson What're your thoughts guys?
  24. Hi all, Good news, 77% of all Iranian Shias say that religion is very important in their lives. Also, 82% of Iranian Shias fast for Ramadan. This is very good news as it shows that Iran is a religious country. @kamyar @Mohammad-Ali Muhammad XII
