Iran Briefing

 

The name Iran means Aryan land and ranks 18th in the world in terms of breadth.

Iran's climate will surprise you, climate diversity is very high, Iranians will proudly tell you how it is possible on the same day to be sweltering by the Persian Gulf while a friend is battling below freezing temperatures climbing a mountain in the north. The weather varies greatly from region to region throughout the year. Iran chahar fasl-e! (Iran has four seasons) is an honor for Iranians.

The Iranian people are from different cultures, each with its own language and customs. Iran’s majority population is Persian (Fars), who still proudly see themselves as the descendants of the great achaemenian empire.

Iran is one of the most important countries in the Middle East which is located in southwest Asia. one of the most important reasons for Iran's importance in the Middle East is being rich of fossil fuels such as oil, gas and its numerous mines. Actually Iran is the world’s fourth-largest exporter of oil and also sits on the second-largest proven reserves of gas.

Iran Religions

Muslims, Christian, Zoroastrianism, Jewish, ...

The official religion of Iran is Islam and 98% of Iranians are Muslim. Islam is divided into two main branches, Shia and Sunni

More than 90 percent of Iran's Muslims follow the Twelver or Imamiyyah belief of Shia religion,the schism between the two sects dates from a disagreement over the successor to the founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, after his death. Shiites recognize the prophet's cousin and son-in-law, Ali, as his successor and thereafter the direct descendants of Ali. Sunnis, however believed that political leadership and respect within the community were the most important prerequisites for a successor and recognized the rulers known as caliphs who went on to form the Umayyad dynasty in Damascus.
