Shiism was so scarce in Persia that the Safavid rulers had problems finding a single Shia book or scholar in a city such as Tabriz. They had to import scholars from lebanon!
When Ismail 1st seized Baghdad in 1508 AD, Sunni Muslims were massacred. The tombs of the Abbasid Caliphs were destroyed. Even the tombs of the jurist Imam Abu Hanifah and Abdul-Qadir al-Jilani were not spared and were literally desecrated. After the Safavids were pushed out the Ottomans on the other hand never retaliated against Shi’ite shrines and populations in Iraq. Here a list of the crimes of the savage pagan, Isma’il Safawi:
In a nutshell: They were:
- Non-Persian, Azeri Turks (with Kurdish ancestry as stated by some historians)
- Former Sufis (extreme forms of Sufism have always been a gateway to Shi’ism)
- Revived Zoroastrian holiday (Norooz) with the help of the likes of Mullah Majlisi
- Opium addicts
- Allies of the crusading west against the Ottomans
- Self-proclaimed semi-divine rulers (copying ancient Persian Zoroastrian rulers who like Shia Imams were infallible and divine)
Shiraz, like most of modern day Iran was Sunni. As a matter of fact, Shirazi was a renowned stronghold of Sunnism in Islamic history, beacons of knowledge emerged from there such as Imam Abu Ishaq al-Shirazi (known as “The Shaykh of the Shafi’is of his time”!) 476H Scholars from Cairo and Baghdad travelled to the Persian lands of Shiraz to seek knowledge. It eventually became a stronghold of the Shafi’is (still most Persians south of Shiraz, who fled the Safavid onslaught are majority Sunni Shafi’i) right until just 500 years ago i.e. before the onslaught of the Safavids the hit the ethnic Persians of Iran the most (who ironically admire the Turkic Safavids the most, religious Shia and non-religious ones alike). Today Shirazi is one of the few Persian Shia cities with a native Sunni minority, the Safavids either destroyed all Sunnis Mosques or removed any sign of Sunnism (such as calligraphies with the names of the four rightly caliphs) from Shiraz’s landscpape. Many Persian Shirazi Muslims did not submit and refused to accept Shi’ism, they either fled (further to the south, were many Persian Sunnis of Shirazi descendant still live in Iran) or were slaughtered on spot.
The rising Sunni population and shrinking Shia population of Iran – From the Ayatollah’s mouth
Since over a decade the number of the Sunnis of Iran are estimated based on out dated figures, most sources (especially Iranian and Shia ones) constantly speak of a Sunni population of 9-10% (in the past the Iranian regime even claimed there were only 4-5% Sunnis in Iran, a claim so ridiculous that even the regime itself stopped repeating it).
Iranian Sunni politicians, scholars, websites and organizations complain about the absence of any official records regarding their community and believe their number is much greater (between 20-25%) than what is usually estimated.
When the Safavids under Ismail I decided to convert everyone residing in current day Iran from Sunni to Shiite Islam in 1501, they started arranged attacks and massacres against the Sunni Persians who refused to convert. As a result, many Sunni Persians left their hometowns for the Zagros mountains. After the Battle of Chaldiran where the Safavids lost to the Ottoman the Sunni Persians descended from the mountains to begin a new life in the land they named “Bastak”, meaning barrier or backstop signifying barrier from Shiite Safavids’ attacks and influences.
Sunni Persians are therefore present in the neighbour areas of Iran such as the Persian Gulf. In fact, people of Sunni Persians origin make up large numbers of the population of Kuwait, the USE and Bahrain (many Bahraini Sunnis are actually of Persian Sunni origin, although many have been Arabised). In the UAE Sunni Persians have ministers like the minister of Education who is originally from Bastak (Persian Sunni city in south Iran) and two other ministers that come from the town of Evaz (people from Evaz are known as ‘Awadhis in the Gulf, like the famous preacher Nabil al-‘Awadhi). They are generally known as very educated and successful (often tradesmen) people, loyal to their respective countries, and staunchly adhering to their Sunni faith.
Persian Kharijis once ruled Algeria and other parts of North Africa and defeated (along with the Sunnis) the Rafidis.
As for the Kharijis:
The Rustamids (767-909) – founded by a Khariji missionary named ʿAbdu r-Rahman ibn Bahram ibn Rustam (Rustam being a pre-Islam Sassanian name which is still very common amongst Shiites in Iran. Rustum is the historical general who fought at the Battle of al-Qādisiyyah for the Sasanian Empire, and ultimately lost and saw Persia being conquered by Islam) were a dynasty of Ibadi Khawarij Imams of Persian descent that ruled mostly in the central Maghreb for a century and a half from their capital Tiaret (in modern Algeria) until the Ismaili Fatimid Caliphate destroyed it. Their realm extended mostly to current central Algeria, but also Libya, Morocco and Mauritania. Despite their (light) Khariji theology, they were just rulers and allied with Sunnis in fighting against the Rafidi Fatimids.
Abdulsamad Rahmani, an ethnic Khorasani (Persians from the Iranian Khorasan province which has a large Persian Sunni population) from Birjand city and a student of the largest Sunni institute of Iran in, Daar al-Uloom Makki, in Zahedan, Sistan-Balochestan province was arrested and taken to an unknown place just before he was to continue his studies in Zahedan. Intelligence services refused to tell his family about his whereabouts.
Our Prophet (peace be upon him) the Prophet of all Arabs and all Ajam (non-Arabs) promised us that Persia will be conquered *and* that that the arrogant Persian Zoroastrian empire will never rise again.
As Iranian Sunnis ourselves who studied Sunni sources in depth we can assure you that …
Every Persian (including Tajik-Persians of Afghanistan/Khorassan and Tajikistan) Muslim should thank Allah for the day He sent ‘Omar Ibn Al-Khattab to bring Islam to the lands of Persia (modern day Iran, Persian/Khorassani parts of Pashtun land/Afghanistan, Persian parts of modern day Uzbekistan such as Bokhara, Samarqand etc.)
If it wasn’t for the mercy of Allah who sent Omar Ibn Al-Khattab, then Persians …
Abū Ḥamīd bin Abū Bakr Ibrāhīm aka Attar Al-Nishaburi* (Nishabur lies in current day Iran, in the Khorassan province where ethnic Persian Khorassani Sunnis still represent a large minority, even in Mashad city) on one of the accusations of the Rafidah against the two noble Shaykhs (Abu Bakr and Omar):
Some good news, two days ago ago a very high ranking Iranian Revolutionary Guard (General Hamid Taqawi) aka Safavid terrorist has been killed in Samarra’ (Sunni city) of Iraq. Look at this shaitanic face (and look how the Shia are already kissing his coffin, what will they do once they build an golden shrine for him … only Allah knows), how many innocent Sunnis of Syria and Iraq he killed, only Allah know … may Allah burn him in Hell with Khomeini.
Do you see these little innocent gorgeous children?
They are the TRUE Sons (and Daughters) of the Sunnis of Iran. They are Balochis, an ancient Iranic people, Sunnis to the bones, notorious all over Iran for their good character, bravery and religiosity. They are also from among – if not the most – deprived children and people of Iran, being guilty of two crimes, first benign Sunni and second being of non ethnic Persians ethnicity, but by Allah who raised the seven heavens, the rotten Rafidi Safavi clergy of Qom with their wasteful shrines and golden domes envy nothing more but these kids. These proud people who despite all the injustice that they’ve faced have never lost their faith and have never been broken by the authorities (despite decades of Shia missionary work in Irwnian Sunni areas) so much that Iranian Shias themselves admit that the average Iranian Sunni is a thousand time more religious and attached to Islam than the Iranian Shiites who despite all the efforts of the Safavi regime is known around the world as the most irreligious and often even straight apostate Islam
The Samanid dynasty (Persian: سامانیان, Sāmāniyān), also known as the Samanid Empire (819–999). It was the first native Persian empire after Arabs ruled Persia for around 300 years. This first ever Persian empire after the Muslim conquest by Caliph ‘Omar Ibn Al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) was not just Muslim but Sunni to the core. The Samanids ruled in Khorassan and Transoxiana. During the era of the Abbasids they ruled as Amirs of Khorasan, appointed by the Abbasid Caliph in Baghdad. The Samanids were of Persian dehqan origin with roots stemming from Balkh (to this day a majority Persian-Tajik area in Afghanistan) in present-day northern Afghanistan.They claimed descent from the House of Mihran, high nobility of the Sassanian and Parthian (ancient Khorassan) empires conquered by the Muslims.
Maryam Amirebrahimi knows the Quran by heart. Basically she’s a real Ayatullah (sign/miracle of Allah), not one of those Living corpses in Qom and Najaf who can’teven recite a single verse of the Fatihah with correct Tajwid and Makharij. She received her master’s in Education from UCLA, where her research focused on the effects of mentorship rooted in CriticalRace Theory for urban high school students of color. She holds a bachelor’s in Child and Adolescent Development from San Jose State University, where she served as the President of the Muslim Student Association for two consecutive years. Currently, she is pursuing a second bachelor’s degree in Islamic Studies through Al Azhar University. Maryam spent a year studying the Arabic language and Qur’an in Cairo, Egypt, and has memorized the Qur’an. She has been presented the Student of the Year award and holds a second degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Maryam frequently travels to work with different communities on topics related to spiritual connections, social issues and women’s studies
By Allah Imam Al-Ridha and the Ahl Al-Bayt in general are innocent of this Neo-Zoroastrian-Sassanian religion and their heretics of a clergy.
“We deserve all we get for letting those Arabs into our country,” Mehdi continues. “We have so little honour and pride left that even Arabs are showing up in this most holy city asking around for women. That bastard I just told you about? He actually knew some Farsi. So as soon as he asked about sighehs, I let loose every vile curse I ever heard, pulled over, grabbed him by his collar, and tossed him out of my cab. And as I drove off I yelled, ‘Eat shit!’ – just for good measure.”
Even in an objective piece in a western newspaper, they can’t help but mention how much Arab hatred is rooted in Shia culture even in one of the most religious Iranian Shiite city (with a always completely ignored native Persian Sunni population of 10-15%) where the 8th (Arab) descendant of the Prophet (peace be upon him) is buried.
We highly recommend the following documentary, especially now since we are in the month of Muharram where Muslims worship Allah (God) alone and fast and Rafidah Shias wail (like Jews) and flagellate and harm themselves with all kind of tools. The documentary gives you – especially as non-Iranians – an unique insight into the pagan Shia Muharram/Ashura rituals that are literally staged by the Iranian regime and the so called ‘Ayatollahs’ who exploit the name of our master Al-Hussein Ibn Ali (ra) to poison their gullible masses (the opium carl marx and his likes percieved as religion) with hatred, grudge, superstition and all sorts of Anti-Islamic practices. These criminal Rafidis have literally revived all pagan practices that the Prophet (saws) came to exterminate, they have poisoned a whole people with the lie of ‘loving and following the Prophet’s progeny’ just as the Church did with Jesus (as) and their so called saints.
Latest Bid’ah propagated by the Shia Mullah regime:
Singing and playing music during Ashura. They “mourn” by shedding (crocodile) tears, they eat, play drum, enjoy, then they start beating themselves, decorate their self-flagellation temples and now they sing and play an opra for Sayyidunah Al-Hussein (رضوان الله علیه), all of that in the name of Islam and the progeny of the final Messenger of Allah (صل الله علیه و سلم). This is their “Islamic” Republic.

Iran Appoints First Sunni Ambassador. It took over 36 years for the Iranian regime (who always blabber about Shia-Sunni unity, in a country where Sunnis are a very large minority) to appoint its first ever Sunni ambassador, although in some random non-Muslim country, namely Vietnam and Cambodia (less than 300.000 Muslims live in both countries!). Now some ignorants might claim that at least Sunnis in Iran are better treated than Shias in Sunni (or Sunni run) countries. This is incorrect and widely propagated by Shiites and Iranian regime supporters.
This is a detailed treatise divided in 8 sections, illustrating the heretical and Sassanian-Zoroastrian (Majoosi) nature of Twelver Shiism that was propagated by the Safavids and their palace scholar Mullah Baqir Majlisi and their followers to this very day – SonsOfSunnah.com
Muhammad Baqir Majlisi (1616–98), also known as Majlisi II (the second) was of Lebanese origin ( Jabal ‘Amel, southern Lebanon) and one of the most important Twelver Shia scholars of all time. He was the son of Muhammad Taqi Majlisi, known as Majlisi I. Muhammad Baqir Majlisi devoted himself the eradication of Sunnism in Iran (he never really succeeded considered the vast amount of Sunnis still living in Iran). The Safavid state (founded by Turkic Azeris who championed Shiism and Persian sentiments in order to oppose their Turkic Ottoman Sunni rivals and effectively create their own empire on the skulls of the Persian Sunni population) made major efforts in the 17th century to Persianize Shiite practice and culture in order to facilitate its spread in Iran among its Sunni Persian populace. Majlisi was appointed as the palace scholar of the Safavids, he himself repeatedly embellished the reputation of the Safavid Empire (whose kings were known as notorious alcoholics, blatant fornicator and allies of the crusaders) by citing Shi’ite traditions which allegedly confirmed the Safavids’ genuine Imamism,
The Municipal authorities of Iran’s capital city, Tehran, closed and sealed off one of the Sunni prayer house – not a mosque – for Sunni Muslims in Tehran, Sunnionline.us ( the Official Website of the Sunni community in Iran) reported. The Mullah regime in Iran denies the minority Sunni population their basic rights. The Municipality acted on the closure a week after the Greater Tehran Police barred the Sunni worshipers from entering this Sunni prayer site in Tehran on January 9, 2015, preventing them from holding congregational Friday prayers.
In the early hours of the day on Wednesday, officials from the Tehran municipality, backed by state suppressive forces (police), raided and destroyed the Sunni ‘Pounak’ prayer hall. The suppressive forces further searched the premises of the mosque’s Sunni imam Abdullah Moussa-Zadeh and confiscated his mobile phone.
