  1. This video was posted by Khamenei.ir website and I decided to share it with you good friends of mine.

So I am interested in joining a hawza in Iran, so I need the contact details of the hawza in Iran which could give me admission. Thank you.
  3. As we all know the internet is witnessing a second massive wave of anti islams and anti muslims. Along with them are some nationalist atheist iranians that have been getting alot of attention. They live in the west that are claiming that their country had been attacked by barbarian arabs and that iran has gone backwards ever since. I just wanted to know what normal muslim iranians thought of the arab conquest by Omar (RA)
  4. When the eastern boogeyman called Osama bin Laden, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, ISIL, ISIS, Iran wears thin and loses credibility in the eyes of the average person in the West, we get these desperate garbage attempts to regurgitate and refresh the negativity surrounding the subject. Here we go again... 'We won't wear hijabs': Chess queens threaten to boycott world championships in Iran after being told they MUST wear Islamic headscarfs There's even a Reddit thread which had around 9000+ upvotes yesterday, but is going down rapidly. WARNING: If you wish to avoid cancerous comments regarding Muslims, Iran and its citizens, DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT visit the comment section of either the article or the Reddit thread.

    Iran launches missile

    Iran fires missiles against 'terrorist bases' in E. Syria in retaliation for Tehran attacks – report The Iranian Revolutionary Guards have reportedly launched ground-to-ground mid-range ballistic missiles from the western Iranian provinces of Kermanshah and Kurdistan into the eastern Syrian province of Deir-ez Zor. “The spilling of any innocent blood will not go unanswered,” Press TV cited a statement by the Revolutionary Guards as saying. https://www.rt.com/news/392940-iran-fires-missiles-syria/
  7. Why Iranian women are wearing white on Wednesdays By Nassim Hatam BBC News 14 June 2017 From the sectionMiddle East Women are wearing white and discarding headscarves in protest against Iran's dress code A new social media campaign against a law which forces women to wear a headscarf is gaining momentum in Iran. Using the hashtag #whitewednesdays, citizens have been posting pictures and videos of themselves wearing white headscarves or pieces of white clothing as symbols of protest. The idea is the brainchild of Masih Alinejad, founder of My Stealthy Freedom, an online movement opposed to the mandatory dress code. Before the 1979 Islamic revolution many Iranian women wore Western-style outfits, including miniskirts and short-sleeved tops, but this all changed when the late Ayatollah Khomeini came to power. Women were not only forced to cover their hair in line with a strict interpretation of Islamic law on modesty, but also to stop using make-up and to start wearing knee-length manteaus. More than 100,000 women and men took to the streets to protest against the law in 1979, and opposition to it has never gone away. Conservatives want the Iranian authorities to enforce the dress code In the three years that it has been running, My Stealthy Freedom has received more than 3,000 photos and videos showing women without their heads covered. While pictures posted on My Stealthy Freedom sites are usually taken in secret to avoid being caught by the authorities, #whitewednesdays gives women a platform to demonstrate in public. Taking risks Now in its fifth week, #whitewednesdays has already attracted a considerable following - more than 200 videos were sent to Ms Alinejad in the first two weeks, some of which have already had 500,000 views. "I'm so pumped up to be in this campaign," one contributor says in a video as she walks down a main road. "I want to talk to you of my imprisonment... they imposed hijab on me since I was seven," she says, shaking her headscarf loose, "while I never felt committed to it and won't be." Some women have been brazen in their show of support for #whitewednesdays Ms Alinejad says she is amazed by the demonstrations of courage - some women have sent in videos of themselves walking the streets without headscarves altogether. "When I expressed my concern about [one contributor's] safety, she replied that she would rather jeopardise her job than continue living under this oppression that the Iranian women have endured for the last 38 years." The campaign has cut across generational boundaries For Ms Alinejad, the project is a labour of love. She runs the campaign herself, with occasional help from a small number of volunteers, and sometimes stays up all night getting the videos up online. Most of the pictures and videos come from inside Iran, but Ms Alinejad has also had contributions from Saudi Arabia (where the headscarf is also compulsory) and further afield, including Europe and the US. Women around the world, including non-Muslims, have shown their support One woman in Afghanistan wrote about her admiration for the campaign and its participants, even though she herself was too frightened to post a photo without a hijab. Headscarves are not mandatory by law in Afghanistan, but many girls and women are forced by their families to wear them. Media backlash Ms Alinejad says she is emancipating Iranian women, as well as the men who support them. One participant said it was important because "even if this leads me to jail and sleeping with cockroaches, it would be worth it to help the next generation". Ms Alinejad sees herself as helping, rather than heading, the campaign. Iranian women, she says, "are taking the lead themselves, they don't need me, they just needed a platform... and I provided them with that". Masih Alinejad says the women who are posting are courageous Her actions have come at a cost though. Ms Alinejad, who lives in self-imposed exile in the US, has not been to Iran since 2009 and at the moment cannot go back to her home country for fear of arrest. Following this latest campaign, the chief editor of Iran's Tasnim news agency published a photo of Ms Alinejad with her husband, calling her a prostitute. Mashregh News, a website said to be affiliated with Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), carried an old family photo of her with her mother, who wears a head-to-toe black chador, and her father. The caption says in bold: "Death to you Masih." Ms Alinejad is defiant, saying none of the backlash will stop her from fighting to win women back their freedom. Her sights are now set on turning the campaign into a concerted global movement, where more women around the world identify with #whitewednesdays and make a simple fashion statement as a powerful show of support.

  8. With the last terrorist blast in Tehran is it possible to imagine an increasing iranian military presence in Syria and Iraq ?

  10. I heard a shia scholar from Iran saying that Iranian youth is converting back to zoroasterism (Majoosiat) (the video is available on Youtube) I did a small google search and found a number of sources saying the same thing. Why so?
  11. 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?

  14. 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

    Declaration of war....

    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/
  17. 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

    Who is the Khorasani

    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?

  22. 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.
  23. 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.
