War In Islam
Islamic Culture and Politics before the Islamic Revolution in 1979
Iran has been a muslim country since the 11th century. A shah governed Iran continuously for the 2,500 years until the Islamic Revolution in 1979.
Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi was the last Shah of Iran. Under his rule Iran was a secular, muslim monarchy.
Iran had many connections to the west at this time, businesses traded with businesses in other countries.
Men and women mixed freely together and were educated together. Women had jobs and could walk freely about without covering their hair.
The arts such as, writing, dancing and singing were a huge part of the Islamic Persian,culture .
After the Shah left Iran in 1979 the left and right wing organizations fought for power.
The right wing hardline clerics won with the help of their security forces, the Revolutionary Guard.
As soon as they were officially in power the government was turned into an Islamic Republic and the legal code was based on Islamic Law or Sharia.
The arts and culture were suppressed under the new religious ruler.

History of the Persian Language
Arabic is the official language of Islam and it is of the most spoken language in the world with over 200 million speakers. This language is spoken in 24 countries and it is a official language all over Northern Africa, Middle East, Iraq and many other places. In fact, it is one of the 6th official languages in the United Nations.
Arabic has many forms but it can be divided into 3 forms. The 1st form is called "Koranic or Classical Arabic." This Arabic is Islam's holy book, which means that it is a very old type of writing and was used in the late 6oo's. This type of writing was only used for reading, it was not used in conversation or others. The 2nd form is called "Formal or Modern Standard Arabic." It is an updated of the Koranic. This version is taught in the schools of Arab countries. It is used in news, modern literature and education. No one speaks it as a native language but it is used as a common language for people who speaks it as a second-language. The 3rd form is called " Spoken or Colloquial Arabic." This type of speech is mostly spoken and is very common.

Persian is an Iranian language that belongs to the Indo-European languages. This language is called Farsi. Farsi was the original language of Iran because during 550 - 330 BCE, the Persians ruled Iran. Now, this language is still widely spoken with over 40 million Farsi speakers. In addition, Arabic and Farsi are really similar languages because during the time when the Sasanian Empire have gained more power, the Persian got influenced to covert their language to Arabic. However, some of the writing was lost during the Islamic time.
