After Muslim conquest of Persia (currently known as Iran), Persians adopted Arabic alphabet for Farsi language by modifying it. They added 4 new letters to 28 letters in Arabic alphabet and thus, the new Persian alphabet -based on Arabic letters- was introduced as 32 letters. Arabic hence served the Persian since even before the arrival of Islam, the Persians used to write in script that also originated from a semite nation, namely the Arameans. The Middle Persian script developed from the Aramaic script and became the official script of the Sassanian empire (224-651 AD). It changed little during the time it was in use, but around the 5th century AD, it spawned a number of new scripts, including the Psalter and Avestan scripts. Essentially there is no “pure” Persian script, hence adopting Arabic (just like Aramaic script in the past) was not forced upon Persians nor did it strip them of their identity (as Anti-Islam bigot and Iranian chauvinists usually claim to tarnish the image of Islam).
AI-Hurmuzan (Hormozan) Captive in the City of Allah’s Messenger
[Hormuzan (Middle Persian: Hormazān, Persian: هرمزان) was the satrap of Khuzestan, a noble of Median (i.e. Kurdish) origin. He was later taken as prisoner by the Muslims a tShushtar in 642]
Abu Sabrah ibn Abi Rahm sent Al-Hurmuzan with a detachment of his troops to ‘Umar ibn Al-Khattab. When they reached Madinah, they dressed Al-Hurmuzan in his silk garments with gold ornaments and his ruby-inlaid crown so that ‘Umar could see him in this form. They did not find ‘Umar in his house but inquired and learned he was in the mosque.
When the group entered the mosque with Al-Hurmuzan, they found ‘Umar in a nook lying asleep on his burnoose with his stick in his hand. On seeing this, Al-Hurmuzan wondered aloud, “Where is ‘Umar?”
The Muslims pointed at him and said, “Here he is.”
Al-Hurmuzan was astonished. “Where are his guards and chamberlains?” Still unable to believe, he added, “He must be a prophet.”
They said, “No, but he lives like the prophets.”
Here some facts that are unknown to many who blindly follow their elders by celebrating this dangerous and pagan festival of polytheism:
Chahārshanbe Suri (Persian: چهارشنبه سوری) is a fire jumping festival, celebrated in Iran. It is the celebration of ancient fire worshippers (although in fairness,some Zoroastrian Priest themselves vehemently reject this practice!). Loosely translated as Wednesday Light, from the word sur which means light in Persian,or more plausibly, consider sur to be a variant of sorkh (red) and take it to refer either to the fire itself or to the ruddiness (sorkhi), meaning good health or ripeness, supposedly obtained by jumping over it is an ancient Iranian festival dating back to at least 1700 BCE of the early Zoroastrian era. Also called the Festival of Fire, it is a prelude to Nowrooz, which marks the arrival of spring. As for Nowrooz then it is sanctified in the heretical Twelver Shi’ite sect as one of the greatest day of mankind (!), they have fabricated a number of narrations and their top scholars – amongst the dead and living – all approve Nowrooz and declare it holy:
The late Shah was one of the strongest advocaters of Pan-Iranism, a concept that totally failed, because of the deep racist nationalism amongst the Persian elite (who make up hardly more than 49% of the population of Iran) and the majority of Iranic people like the Baloch, Pashtun, Tajiks etc. who are proud Sunni Muslims. Apparently they call to the unity of all Iranic people, this includes the Kurds, Baloch etc. yet these groups during the Shah’s and even worse in the Shia Safawi reign are one of the most oppressed and deprived people inside the Iranian state. And then there are the Arabs of Iran who could be described with no exaggeration as one of the most deprived and oppressed people of Iran, they can smell the oil being carried from their soil to Tehran (most of Iran’s oil is based on soil where Arabs make up the majority!), yet they are literally completely deprived of it.
In fact the Iranian nationists went to such extremes to deprive …
Al-Hamdulillah, there are not many people today who dare to to repeat clear-cut lies like: Muslims worship the Ka’ba! It couldn’t get more ridicolous by accusing the purest monotheists on earth i.e. the Muslims of polytheism. The ignoramus tried it with the ‘moon god theory‘ and worse than that was the ‘Muslims worship the Ka’ba theory’. As a matter of fact in Islam (unlike Rafidi Shi’ism, Christianity, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism) ALL forms of worship are directed to the CREATOR ALONE i.e. there is no such a thing as:
IslamResponses channel is a superb channel answering the common lies and twistings of the enemies of monotheism (Islam) from among the Arab Atheists, Persian Majoos, Jews, Man-Worshipping crusaders and other disbelievers.
In Islam, both men and women are required to be respectable. It just so happens that women are the fairer sex and have more to cover up in order not to be enticing. That’s all. But both have to cover and both have to be respectable.
Your (non-Muslims) “political correctness” spider senses are probably tingling by now, but there’s no need to deny it. You personally differentiate between a topless man and a topless women, so why pretend? Men and women are different, and that doesn’t necessitate that one of the two be oppressed.
Non-Muslims can point fingers all they want and claim that Muslims are obsessed with sex, but the flat-out reality is that a person can take just one look at America or Western Europe to see an over-obsession with sexuality – especially, especially especially the female body.
By Shaykh Mashhoor Hassan Aal Salmaan حفظه الله و رعاه
There is no doubt that the Safavids forced Shi’ism upon most Iranian, what about the early Muslims who conquered Persia in during the Caliphate of ‘Omar Ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him)?
It is widely believed amongst Iranians (including religious Shi’ites) that Arabs somehow enforced Islam upon one of the strongest empires in that the world has ever seen. They seem to have forgotten that prior to the Islamic conquest of Persia, it was the Persian empire that conquered and occupied vast amount lands, including the lands of non-Iranian people, from Egypt right into the cradle of the Arabs, the Yemen. Arab land. As a matter of fact, the Persian Sassanid Empire occupied the entire eastern lands of Arabia, parts of Hijaz, Oman and Yemen.
Conquering lands was the norm of the time back then, and in the case of the Muslims, the students, disciples (Sahabah) of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them), then there are various reports that caliph ‘Omar (may Allah be pleased with him) himself wasn’t keen on getting into any confrontation with the Sassanian empire. It was the Sassanian empire (like the Roman one) that couldn’t tolerate a united Arabia and started mobolising its armies in Iraq. The Muslims had no choice but to face an approaching enemy first, fearlessly:
Rabi’a ibn ‘Amir(radiyallahu ‘anhu) went to the leader of the Persians. The leader asked him, “Why are you coming to our lands? If you are coming for money then we will pay everyone of you a salary so leave us alone.” But Rabi’a said, “That is not why we are here. We are sent to free the creation from being slaves of one another to being slaves of Allah the Creator of the creation and from the oppression of religion to the justice of Islam and we want to deliver people from the narrowness of this world to the vastness of this world and the Afterlife.
We’d like to present you a fabulous playlist with many beneficial videos, refuting the common lies of the enemies of Islam, particularly the lies and doubts that are usually being spread by the Iranian nationalists who blame day and night the religion of Islam and Arabs for their miserable lifes. There is a whole series by a scholar in Tehran named “Mostafa Tabatabai”, the son of Ayatollah Tabatabai, yet he left the Ghuluww (extremism) of the twelver Shi’ite cult and exposed many Khurafat (superstition) of the Shi’ite sect. Recently he has started to respond to the lies of a well known Islam hater (he got his own sattelite channel) named “Bahram Moshiri”. This Moshiri guy does not know any arabic, and depends on translated, unverified history books (like Tabari), yet this is of course enough to impress his viewers who have no clue about arabic let alone the difference between authentic reports in history/Hadith books and non-authentic ones (thus Moshiri and his like – just like the Shia clergy – quote whatever suits their agenda to bash Islam, the Prophet (peace be upon him) and his companions.
Anyway, Mostafa Tabatabai (NOT A Shi’ite and NOT a Mollah) and other scholars are doing well exposing the lies of the likes of Moshiri with reason, logic, proofs and authentic history records.
رد شبهات ملحدین (Persian articles refuting the doubts around Islam)
حضرت عمر رضی الله عنه با ایرانیان بی عدالتی کرده ؟
Salman Al-Farsi converted to Islam in Medina after 13 years of the revelation of the noble Quran (i.e. he did not even witness the first period in Makkah!), yet one can see many Iranian nationalists, and the major devils among them who spread a lie that even a donkey would refuse to accept, namely:”Salman Al-Farsi (RA) invented Islam for the Prophet (SAWS)!”
Has Allah placed Arabs above non Arabs?
One of the cheapest doubts of the enemies of Islam ever.
The Main Argument is Revolved around Arda Wiraz Namag.
Lets Examine the Myth of Zoroastrianism being the First Monotheistic religion :
Date of Zoroaster:
:6th century BCE(Yup A Hundred Years Before Cyrus)(From Wokrs Of Ammianus Marcellinus 6.32, 4th century CE)
:James Darmesteter Says its c. 100 BCE
There is no evidence of His existence so the Dates among Iranists are from Mythological Sources
Besides lets See what Tabari Says: Zaradusht bin Isfiman (an Arabic adaptation of “Zarathustra Spitama”) was an inhabitant of Palestine, and a servant of one of the disciples of the prophet Jeremiah. According to this tale, Zaradusht defrauded his master, who cursed him, causing him to become leprous (cf. Elisha’s servant Gehazi in Jewish Scripture).
The apostate Zaradusht then eventually made his way to Balkh where he converted Bishtasb (i.e. Vishtaspa), who in turn compelled his subjects to adopt the religion of the Magians.
