‘Eid Al-Fitr Khutba 1436/2015 in the city of Azashahr (Golestan province) in northern Khorassan part of Iran Northern and southern Khorassan province of Iran – despite the famous Imam Al-Ridha shrine in Mashad – have still a large Sunni minority. Even many towns outside Mashad are still majority Sunni. Khorassani Sunnis are of Baloch, Turkmen and even Persian (khorassani) descent. In fact Persian Khorassanis are amongst the few ethnic Persian Sunni minorities left in Iran (most Persian Sunnis were massacred by the Safavids) along with the southern Iranians (Larestanis/Khodmoonis) who are also of Persian descent (unlike Baloch and Turkmen. It is also noteworthy to mention that many of the greatest scholars of the Ahl Al-Sunnah emerged from the lands of Golestan (in particular Gorgij, hence many scholars carry the title Al-Gorgiji/Al-Jorjiji).

امام جمعه اهل سنت آزادشهر ومدیر دارالعلوم فاروقیه گالیکش(استان گلستان) http://www.gorgij.net Shaykh At-Tafsir, Molana Muhammad Gorgij is the leading Sunni Shaykh in Golestan, head of the ‘Darul-Uloom Farooqiyyah’ centre in Golestan. A very outspoken and fearless man who openly critisiced the Iranian regime on many occasions in regards to their oppressive policies against Sunnis, especially in Tehran and other majority Shia areas. He is a thorn in the eyes of the regime but to influencial and beloved (and guarded) to be assassinated that easily (as the Iranian regime did with many outspoken Sunni scholars). Look at the simplicity of the Iranian Sunnis, their clothes, the pulpit. Only Allahs name is invoked, no ‘Ya Ali,’ nor ‘Ya Omar’ or ‘Ya Rasulallah’, only the Shahadah. May Allah protect him.

The large Khorassan provinces of Iran, famous for the Imam Al-Ridha shrine in Mashad - have still a large Sunni minority. Mashad itself has a native Persian Sunni minority and many towns outside Mashad are still majority Sunni. Khorassani Sunnis are of Baloch, Turkmen and even Persian (khorassani) origin. In fact Persian Khorassanis are amongst the few ethnic Persian Sunni minorities left in Iran (most Persian Sunnis were massacred by the Safavids) along with the southern Iranians (Larestanis/Khodmoonis) who are also of Persian descent.

 امام جمعه اهل سنت زاهدان مولانا عبدالحمید www.abdolhamid.net/persian Eid prayers in the majority Sunni city of Zahedan in the Balochestan province of Iran, lead by Molana Abdul-Hamid Ismailzehi, the leading Sunni scholar of Zahedan. Zahedan is the largest Sunni city of Iran, in fact all native Zahedanis are Sunni but since the late Shah and even more so since the Shia Mullahs are in control, the demography of the city has changed and the Shia regime tries it utmost to change the demography of the city by bringing in Shia families (Basij and Revolutionary Guard mafia) from Tehran, Shiraz, Isfahan and other majority Shia cities. Howevern, Al-Hamdulillah Zahedan is still majority Sunni and Iranian Sunnis are notorious among all Iranians for their religiousity (whereas Shias in Iran are known for secular and liberal beliefs and even apostasy!). In Zahedan the largest Sunni Mosque, the new Makki Mosque, of Iran is located, with a religious institute for male and females alike.
