Faran Hesami, Kamran Rahimian: Prisoner of the day

Bahai teachers

P.C.E.D.: Faran Hesami, a Bahai citizen who was previously sentenced to four years in prison, was arrested on Sunday, July 15, and transferred to Evin Prison to commence serving her sentence.

Hesami was arrested when she went to Evin Prison's Sentence Enforcement Unit to verify a power of attorney form belonging to her husband, Kamran Rahimian, who is already serving his four-year term at Rajaee Shahr Prison.

On January 3, Branch 15 of Tehran Revolutionary Court under Judge Salavati sentenced the couple who were both lecturers at the Bahai Institute for Higher Education (Bahai Online University), to four years in prison on charges of "membership in the Bahai community," and "assembly and collusion with the intent to disrupt national security."

Hesami and Rahimian were arrested on September 13, 2011. Faran Hesami was released on bail in late November 2011. Rahimian was detained inside Ward 209 of Evin Prison prior to his trial, and was transferred to Rajaee Shahr Prison immediately after his trial. Earlier, seven other Bahai citizens were transferred to Rajaee Shahr Prison in relation to their roles in the Bahai University.

Hesami had appealed her lower court ruling and was unaware that the appeals court had upheld her sentence.

Rahimian and Hesami have a three-year-old child by the name of Artin.

علق معنی زالو هم میدهد!! علق اسم است و فعل تعلق!! امیدوارم که شما با زبان عربی مثل اسلام مشگل نداشته باشید! ادبیات قران بسیار سنگین است و به زبان شعر همانند دیوان حافظ.
من میگم، هر ایرانی باید یک دین جدا برای خودش داشته باشد!! ۶۵ میلیون دین و راه رسیدن به خدا!!
پایدار و توانا باشی بجای موفق و در پناه خدا

Ma'moor you are Wrong about Quran Translation, here is why

by IranFirst on

 Your translation is Wrong

In Arabic "alaqa" means "Clot of Blood", the word for sperm is "nutfa"


I did not write the rest of Quran's explanation of embryo's developmental stages,, which again is scientifically Wrong, based on what science shows in 21st century. Please read thoes passages, if you want I can provide the Quranic reference and what science says today. There are many many more mistakes in Quran, that we can discuss if you are interested.

If Islam was a personal belief only and it did not harm others, you are right to practice it just for your self.

BUT, it is not and has never been just a personal choice in history of lands that Muslims rule by force (starting from Mohamd on).Islam is THE LAW in Iran by force and as such it is imposed on ALL Iranians IRI/Muslims kill and mame people by following Islam's instructions. Why should I , or anyone else under these stupid laws and rituals, not be able to question them. Am I insulting Islam (an idealogy), or Muslims are insulting us by imposing these outdated rules and rituals and beliefs (such as above) on me and my family, in 21st century.

Please be honest and say how you feel if some other idealogy or practice (that you are convinced it wrong) , is imposed on you daily and in every aspect of your life, how would you feel?

علق از تعلق می آید یعنی به فارسی همبستگی!! اسپرم مرد و زن با هم می آمیزند!! بابا این را که دیگه هر بچه ای میداند که برای بوجود آوردن انسان زن ومرد باید همبستر شوند!!
من که اهل دموکراسی این قرتی بازیها نیستم! ولی گویا میگوند یکی از اصولش احترام به همه اعقاید و مذاهب میباشد!! آن عزیزی که از کتاب خودش نقل کرده یعنی اینکه  برایش عزیز است!! نقد کردن با بد بیراه گفتن فرق میکند!!

Ma'moor that is one of the Mistakes in Quran (one of many)

READ and learn


Is Man Created From Clotted Blood?

Quran-23:14: Then fashioned We the drop (semen) a CLOT
OF CONGEALED BLOOD then fashioned We the Clot a little lump (foetus),
fashioned We the little lump into bones, then clothed the bones with
flesh, and then produced it another creation. So blessed be Allah, the
Best of Creators. ( Bengali translated Quran said: “Zamaa’t Raokto
theeke Manoosh banieesi” And this Ayat has been repeated again and again
throughout the Quran ) Quran-75:38: Then he becomes a CLOT; then
(Allah) shaped and fashioned…

Quran 96: 2 Created man, out of a mere clot of congealed blood

There are serious scientific problems here:
Blood clot cannot grow into anything. This idea also came from the
Greek. Aristotle erroneously believed that, humans are originated from
the action of male semen upon female menstrual blood, which is
absolutely an incorrect assumption. Quran’s assertion on Clot (alaqa) is
completely wrong about human development, since there is absolutely no
stage during which the embryo consists of a clot. The only situation in
which an embryo might appear like a clot is during a miscarriage, in
which case the clotted blood that is seen to emerge (much of which comes
from mother) is solidified and by definition no longer alive.
Therefore, if ever an embryo appeared to look like a clot it would never
develop any further into a human; it would be a dead mass of bloody
miscarrying flesh. Since MO the child-molester had many wives 
and other women he raped, it is entirely possible that he would be very familiar with



خلق النسان من علق


the human is not from the dust!! it is from sperms of a man and a woman!! that is exactly what Quran says!! that is what has been proved scientifically!!

I m not sure what u posted in arabic is off your holly book or it is a comment by some other people!! in either case, it starts the argument with a wrong point!! In Quran, God made Adam out of soil!! but then every other human coming to this world goes through his/her parents' pipes!!!

Hatred against Iranians for their choices, yes this is the

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

Freedom the IRI and their founders were talking about, the good ole days of the emam of freedom for me, but not for you. Questioning their Islamic views and beliefs is a National Security threat.  Such honest people, whats the problem Iran, still don't get it?    


يَا أَبْناءَ


يَا أَبْناءَ الإِنْسانِهَلْ عَرَفْتُمْ لِمَ خَلَقْناكُمْ مِنْ تُرابٍ واحِدٍ؛ لِئَلاَّ يَفْتَخِرَ أَحَدٌ عَلى أَحَدٍ. وَتَفَكَّرُوا فِي كُلِّ حِينٍ فِي خَلْقِ أَنْفُسِكُم؛ إِذاً يَنْبَغِي كَما خَلَقْناكُم مِنْ شَيْءٍ واحِدٍ أَنْ تَكُونُوا كَنَفْسٍ واحِدَةٍ، بِحَيْثُ تَمْشُونَ عَلى رِجْلٍ واحِدَةٍ، وَتَأْكُلُونَ مِنْ فَمٍ واحِدٍ، وَتَسْكُنُونَ فِي أَرْضٍ واحِدَةٍ؛ حَتَّى تَظْهَرَ مِنْ كَيْنُوناتِكُمْ وَأَعْمالِكُمْ وَأَفْعالِكُمْ آياتُ التَّوْحِيدِ وَجَواهِرُ التَّجْرِيدِ. هذا نُصْحِي عَلَيْكُم يا مَلأَ الأَنْوارِ، فَانْتَصِحُوا مِنْهُ لِتَجِدُوا ثَمَراتِ القُدْسِ مِنْ شَجَرِ عِزٍّ مَنيعٍ.O CHILDREN OF MEN! Know ye not why We created you all from the same dust? That no one should exalt himself over the other. Ponder at all times in your hearts how ye were created. Since We have created you all from one same substance it is incumbent on you to be even as one soul, to walk with the same feet, eat and dwell in the same land, that from your inmost being, by your deeds and actions, the signs of oneness and the essence of detachment may be made manifest. Such is My counsel to you, O concourse of light! Heed ye this counsel that ye may obtain the fruit of holiness from the tree of wondrous glory.From The Hidden words of Baha'u'llahThis is for the gentleman who always boast of wearing an omega !


درود بر تمام زندانیان سیاسی


Iranians of all walks of life taking a stand for their freedom and just rights.  They are to be commanded and supported by all freedom loving folks.


  Iranians need to stand united in their support for these brave souls, support their goals and aspiration for a  free independent and prospers Iran. 

 Foreign nations which thru their apartheid policy practice the same insanity and unjust detentions cannot be a good example for the future of Iran and need not to apply.   


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 



همبستگی‌ فعالانه با هموطنان بهائی


و تمام هموطنان ایرانی‌ که به خاطر عقاید سیاسی، دینی یا غیره، زیر ظلم و ستم این رژیم دزدان، جنایتکران  فاسد جمهوری اسلامی قرار گرفته‌اند، وظیفه هر ایرانی‌ شریف، وطن دوست و آزادیخواه هست.

How sad that when the wife, Ms. Hesami

by Anahid Hojjati on

goes to verify the power of attorney form from her husband, they arrest her too. All for the "crime" of educating others. Thanks for posting.

Let's remember

by Ali Najafi on

Ghormeh Sabzi, thank you for sharing this post on Faran Hesami and Kamran Rahimian. I will keep them, as well as all prisoners of conscious in Iran, in my thoughts and prayers.

Also, relating to some of the comments. I understand that you may not agree with Baha'is. However, I ask that you do not intentionally misrepresent their beliefs. This post is meant to honor our Iranian sisters and brothers, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or gender, who are wrongfully persecuted, because of their courage, integrity, and desire for justice.

Liberty and joy, freedom and peace,tranquility and happiness of the people of Iran is fast approaching. No power on earth is enable to resist the change ocuring in Iran. This great step has its ows cost and its being paid by the loving people of our land by their blood and resistance for the last 32 years. Ignorance,fanatisicm,dogmas,taboos and wrotten traditions and old and failed mentalities shall be one by one replaced by the new age spirit of equality, love,peace and other pillars of Human rights.

by First Amendment on

The undeniable human rights of our honorable Bahai fellow citizens have been violated by the savage Zionists for so many years now........The glorious day of the liberation for their sacred land,   currently occupied by the rabid Zionists, is fast approaching..........Wake up,The International House of Justice, wake up..........Our dear Bahais deserve nothing shy of self-governance in Haifa.........


Islamist Rapists

by Fred on

Gross violation of human rights including codified misogyny and pedophilia are just part of their savagery, these days their warmongering which is the ultimate human rights violation is hard to dismiss.

Regime change is the only way to end the innate barbarism of the Messianic Islamist Rapists, “reformers” and all; the rest is just feel good lip service.

Bahais believe in the indigenous Iranian religion and because of that are specially targeted by the Messianic Islamist rapists.

There will come the time for the Islamist rapists to answer for their crimes against humanity at The Hague.
