I get your points Sister Ruhi.  Actually, with the passage of time as the world keeps getting a more difficult place to survive in, and additionally the 4-decade-old sanctions, Iran feels it's no more able to cope with principles, both historical and present-time.  Therefore Iranian policies at the moment are quite a sad hotchpotch of contradictory values.  Embarrassing to say the least, and each time Iran tries to tackle the embarrassment, it adds more contradictions to its revolutionary ideology.  It was a grand Islamic revolution, and tarnishing its image is the most painful aspect of this story.

As for pre-revolution Iranians, of course they make no bones about their hatred for Islam and are willing to identify themselves with any non-Monotheistic religion, but adamantly won't call themselves Muslims.  That is no secret at all.  But I didn't know much about the approach of post-revolution Iranians on this front. Thanks for educating me.  Sounds disgraceful.  I did observe now and again from the articles in Press TV and some Iranian commoners diligently tweeting and facebooking over the injustice inflicted on them by the Western establishment, which of course is true and I support them on that.  But also, I did observe their somewhat frequent softness for Armenia and dislike for Ottoman history.  I recall during the fairly recent Azerbaijan-Armenia conflict last year, we too were pretty surprised that Iran was brazenly backing Armenia.  Similarly, Iran also backs India, overlooking India's blatant, vicious and murderous violation of human rights against the Muslims of occupied Kashmir and also against the Muslims in India.  These selfish trends of Iranians have been quite open.  With such a mentality, it's no surprise that Iranians prefer to remember the pagan times of Achaemenids and Sassanids as their heritage rather than the Golden era of Islam. 

In regard to current policies, one may say why single out Iran as other Muslim countries aren't too different.  That too is true.  For example, similar to the non-Muslim countries, just about no Muslim state has yet uttered a word of condemnation for China's horrific repression of the poor Uighur Muslims of Turkmenistan.  However, concerning Iran, one of the top priorities of the Revolution was the interest of the pan-Islamic world.  If Iran fears an economic backlash from China as do other Muslim countries, okay, but why support countries like India and Armenia that are beggars themselves and do not control the global economy and at the same time overtly hurt Muslim interest.  No wonder Iran upholds the era of the Zoroastrian as the face of its culture.  What pathetic sickness!

I must say, this post was thoroughly informative.  I hope our guest readers learn from it too, Insh'Allah.

Unfortunately yes, Sister Heba.  You nailed it   😀 

This always existed in pre-revolution Iran and started in post-revolution era since quite a few years. 

Though my mom's side of the family is from Iran, that doesn't stop her nor any of us to acknowledge aloud that a lot of things post-revolution Iran is doing makes it very similar to the tyrannical occupation of their country by the Shah, the notorious despot.  As for freedom of speech, it is definitely a little more now compared to the Shah's regime (which was no different from the brutal Romans), yet there is plenty of room for improvement.  But the adoration of pagan Persia by millions of Iranians of present-day Islamic Republic of Iran touted as their "proud heritage" is totally beyond the pale, shameful!   They forget the following:

"We do not worship Iran, we worship Allah.  For patriotism is another name for paganism.  I say let this land (Iran) burn.  I say let this land go up in smoke, provided Islam emerges triumphant in the rest of the world."
- Late Ayatollah Khomeini, founder of the Islamic Revolution of Iran.

When he spoke of patriotism as another name for paganism, he meant patriotism or nationalism on the basis of land, race, color or language.  Are the Iranians thinking on these lines to keep the ideology of the hard earned revolution alive? .. unfortunately no.   

Very good and educational piece.  Thank you Sister.

Walaykom As-Salam Sister Zeynab.   Indeed this is such a happy day, Alhumdulilah.  We cooked special food and sent half of it to an orphanage.  May Allah Almighty accept our good deeds, ameen.   We also had a big virtual gathering on Zoom with extended family and friends of about a hundred people.  We recited Quran Verses with interpretation, and then discussed Islamic History.  In normal times we would have this celebration in-person.  But with Covid19 still around, a group of hundred is too big a crowd to meet safely even though almost all of them are fully vaccinated.  Yet, there are no guarantees, except from Allah, and Allah helps those who help themselves.

For those guest readers who would like to know a little more about the history and significance of Mawlid an-Nabi, please read and share the following contents and pics.


Of course, the practice of celebrating Mawlid is certainly not in the Noble Quran.  However, it's a fine Halal gesture of love and respect for the beloved Final Messenger (pbuh).   Thus, every year millions of Muslims across the world mark the birthday of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).  This celebration is called Mawlid an-Nabi, or Eid Milad.  In majority of Muslim countries it's a national holiday, except for a few of those Muslim countries which have deviated in either extremes - becoming hardcore secularists or following hardcore Wahabism.  But by far the majority of Muslim states - private homes, government offices and streets - are often lighted and decorated.  Food and sweets are distributed in public places and fairs are held for the enjoyment of kids.  Masjids celebrate with lectures and presentations recounting the Prophet's (pbuh) biography.  There are similar commemorations in private homes with guests, followed by special meals.  If you want to learn about the life of the Prophet (pbuh), attending Mawlid discussions and talks in 12th Rabi-al-Awal is a good opportunity to know about the beloved Final Messenger (pbuh).

As-Salaam Alaikum dear everyone.  Monday was 12 Rabi al Awwal, 1443.   It's the birthdate of the beloved Final Messenger (pbuh).  Please  recite the Fatiha and then the durood in remembrance of this tremendous personality and the chosen slave of Allah, The Almighty. 

The Beautiful Fatiha (1st Chapter of the Noble Qur'an)
                                                                                                                                                           
بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ ﴿١﴾ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّـهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ﴿٢﴾ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ ﴿٣﴾ مَالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ ﴿٤﴾ إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ ﴿٥﴾ اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ ﴿٦﴾ صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ ﴿٧﴾ـ

1. In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
2. Praise be to Allah, Rab of the Worlds,
3. The Beneficent, the Merciful.
4. Master of the Day of Judgment,
5. You (alone) we worship; You (alone) we ask for help.
6. Show us the straight path,
7. The path of those whom You have favored; Not the (path) of those who earn Your anger nor of those who go astray.

Durood:  (Extra-Quranic du'a for the Prophet [pbuh])


اَللّٰھُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّعَلٰٓی اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ کَمَا صَلَّیْتَ عَلٰٓی اِبْرَاھِیْمَ وَعَلٰٓی اٰلِ اِبْرَاھِیْمَ اِنَّکَ حَمِیْدٌ مَّجِیْدٌ اَللّٰھُمَّ بَارِکْ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَّعَلٰٓی اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ کَمَا بَارَکْتَ عَلٰٓی اِبْرَاھِیْمَ وَعَلٰٓی اٰلِ اِبْرَاھِیْمَ اِنَّکَ حَمِیْدٌ مَّجِیْدٌ

O Allah, bestow Your favor on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad as You have bestowed Your favor on Ibrahim and on the family of Ibrahim, You are Praiseworthy, Most Glorious. O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You have blessed Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim, You are Praiseworthy, Most Glorious.

Plenty of thanks dear Sis.   

Yeah, right.  I too wouldn't include the founder of the revolution in this muck-up mentality developing in the descendants of the revolutionaries.

Extremely interesting read, Sister Heba.  I must say, you perceived and understood the psychology of the present Iranians spot on.  Apparently the old spirit of the revolution is dampening and their priorities changing.  However, Iran's animosity of the Ottomans is quite an old story.  This piece reflects that if analyzed carefully there does remain some stark resemblances between the mindset of the Shah's Iran and Iran after the Revolution.  But I wouldn't include the founder of the Islamic Revolution of Iran in the path pursued by many of his country people.

Thank you for this wonderful work, dear Sister.  Allah bless you.
