The following letter is from a Muslim ruler named "Omar" who threatened the Persian king Yazdgird III (632 AD - 651 AD) to submit to Islam.



From: Omar Ibn Al Khalifat
To: Yazdgird III Shah of Persian Empire

"Yazdgird, I see not a fruitful future for you & your nation unless you accept my offer & commit Bei'at (Joining with Khalifat & bringing Islam). Once upon a time your land ruled half the known world but what has it come down to now? Your troops are defeated in all fronts & your nation is bound to collapse. I offer you a way to rescue yourself. Start praying to a mono God, a single union God, the only God who created everything in the universe. We bring you & the world his message, he who is the true God. Stop your Fire Worship, command your nation to stop their Fire Worship which is false; join us by joining the truth. Worship Allah O Akbar the only true God, The creator of universe. Worship to Allah & accept Islam as your salvation. End your Pagan ways & your false worships now & bring Islam so you can accept Allah O Akbar as your savior. By doing so, you will find the only way to your survival & peace for Persians. If you know what is best for Ajam (Arabic term for Persians meaning Retarded & Weird), you will choose this path. Bei'at is the only way."

Allah O Akbar

Khalifat Al Muslemin

Here's the Persian king's response to this idiot. (written around 636AD)



From: Yazdgird III Sassanid

To: Omar Ibn Al Khatab, Khalifat of Tazi (Persian term for Arabs)

"You in your letter wrote that you want to direct us towards your God, Allah O Akbar, without having the true knowledge of who we are & what do we worship! It is amazing that you occupy the position of Khalifat (Ruler) of Arabs, yet your knowledge is the same as a lowly Arab rambler, roaming in deserts of Arabia, & same as a desert tribal man!

When we established the tradition of hospitality & good deeds in the world & we waved the flag of "Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds" in our hands, you & your ancestors were roaming the deserts, eating Lizards for you had nothing else to feed yourselves & burying your innocent daughters alive (an old Arab tradition, cause they preferred male children to female)!

Tazi (arab) people have no value for God's creatures! You behead God's children, Rape Women, bury your daughters alive, attack the Caravans, mass murder, kidnap people's wives & steal their property! Your hearts are made of stone, we condemn all these Evil which you do. How can you teach us Godly Ways when you commit these action?

You tell me to stop my Fire Worship! Us, Persians see the Love of Creator & power of inventor in the light of Sun & warmth of Fire. Lights & Warmth of the Sun & Fire makes us see the light of truth & warmens our hearts to the creator & to one another. It helps us to be kind to one another, it enlightens us & makes us to keep Mazda's Flame, alive in our hearts. Our lord is Ahura Mazda & it is strange that you people also, just discovered him & named him Allah O Akbar! But we are not the same as you, we are not in the same level as you. We help other human being, we spread love among humanity, we spread Good throughout the Earth, we have been spreading our culture but in respect for other cultures throughout the whole world for thousands of years, yet you in the name of Allah invade other men's land! You mass murder the people, create famine, fear & poverty for others, you create Evil in the name of Allah. who is responsible for all this catastrophe?

Is it Allah who commands you to murder, pillage & to destroy?
Is it you the followers of Allah who do this in his name?
Or Is it both?

You have risen from heat of the deserts & burnt out infertile lands with no resources, you want to teach people the love of God by your military campaigns & the power of your Swords! You are Desert Savages, yet you want to teach Urban people like us who lived in the cities for thousands of years, the love of God! We have thousands of years of culture behind us, a powerful tool indeed! Tell us? With all your military campaigns, barbarianism, murder & pillage in the name of Allah O Akbar, what have you taught to this Muslim Army? What knowledge have you taught the Muslim that you also insist on teaching it to non Muslim? What culture have you learned from your Allah, now that you want to force-teach it to others?

Alas, Oh Alas...... that today our Persian Armies of Ahura have been defeated from your recently Allah Worshiping Armies; Now, our people have to worship the same God, but forced by the sword to call him Allah & pray to him in Arabic, cause your Allah only understands Arabic!

I suggest, you & your gang of bandits pack up & move back to your deserts where they are used to live. Take them back where they used to the burning heat of the sun, tribal life, eating Lizards & drinking Camel Milk. I forbid you to let your band of thieves loose in our fertile lands, civilized cities & our glorious nation. Don't turn these "beasts with hearts of stone" loose, to mass murder our people, kidnap our women & children, rape our wives & send our daughters to Mecca as slaves! Don't let them do these crimes in the name of Allah O Akbar, put a stop to your criminal behavior.

Aryans (Persians) are forgiving, warm, hospitable, & decent people and everywhere they went, they have spread seeds of friendship, love, knowledge & truth; therefore, they shall not punish you & your people for your pirate ways & criminal acts.

I beg you to remain with your Allah O Akbar in your deserts & do not move close to our civilized cities, for your believes are "Much Fearful" & your behavior is "Most Barbaric"!

sign,
Yazdgird III Sassanid



The original copy of the letter can be found in the London Museum.

And that's why Iran and Saudi Arabia are still squaring off. (The question of succession was just a continuation of this cultural rift.)

1400 years later and the propaganda would have us all believe the Persian King is the number one financier of terror and the desert dwelling rockape is the poor persecuted hard done one.

That's the only thing that's changed and when you understand that the House of Saud is in bed with most of Americas politicians and corporations, you'll start to understand the bigger picture of why 'terrorism' exists and who benefits and who suffers.

iran is now a shia state while saudi arabia now follow wahhabi.
these letters go back to when yazdegerd and the people of persia (now iran) were zoroastrian, while umar bin al khattab followed sunni islam.
the current problems started when khomeini declared al qaeda (remember them?) terrorists in 1987, originally saudi arabia blamed iran for al qaeda acts against america, until their wahhabi roots showed, the same happened with daesh/isil/isis/is or whatever they're called today.

Burying their baby daughters alive in the desert? Uh huh... Propaganda much?


www.iranian.com...
"The Letter of Yazdgerd III to Caliph Omar" is one of the many urban legends circulating the internet. I have personally seen four different versions of this letter, their tone and content differing from quite absurd and offensive to more believable and somehow historical. .....
However, by simply reading the text and having a basic knowledge of the history and language of the supposed time of the composition of the letter (ca. 635-650 CE), one can also conclude that the letter is quite a recent forgery.

Good work digging all that up.

I had wondered about the authenticity of the letters.


However, pre-Muahammad, Arabs regularly buried their daughters alive.
He kind of put a stop to it when he revealed that those people would be punished by Allah.


Some took heed and converted.
This is early Islamic history.

It's one of the many reforms of Arabia under Muhammad's guidance.

That too, could be another historical myth:

Is there any archeological or other support for the claim that pre-Islamic Arabs buried children alive? ...
Sorry it’s taken me a while to answer this, but I wanted to do enough research to be fairly confident in my answer of . . . I don’t think so.

Even most Muslims consider it to be true. Including myself.

But we weren't there and it could be that's you're right and its propaganda.

I do appreciate the research you've put in though, starviego.

I should think you would have a hard time finding the original document in the "London Museum" (and which one? there are many), as it is a likely forgery. When I worked in Iran this notion came by occasionally and was said to be a remnant of the Iran-Iraq War.

On point, the Persians had Arabs within their dwindling empire of varying faiths and it seems doubtful they would have insulted their own subjects along with the enemy. Not to mention that the faithful of Zoroaster were among the first to claim that all gods were expressions of one. And, well, it is just plain ironic that a Sassanid would harangue anyone else for "military campaigns, barbarianism, murder & pillage"... the Persian Empire never exactly asked politely to absorb territories.

Silly religious people.

This topic is as political as they come. Just because it doesn't deal with donkeys and elephants don't make it nonpolitical.

On a softer note . . . I wonder which group is larger, those whom kneel down to mumble to allay or those who ride around in mazda?

And why is there a rift between the Shi'a and the Sunni in the first place? Do you think it a coincidence that the Persians, who are not a Semitic people,chose one side and the Arabs another?
