Omar Khayyam Day -
Wednesday May 17, 2017

Culture : Omar Khayyam (1048-1131), a Persian mathematician, astronomer and poet, was renowned in his own country and in his own lifetime for his scientific achievements, but is chiefly known to English-speaking readers through the translation by the English writer Edward Fitzgerald of a collection of his Rubaiyat (“quatrains”) in “The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam” (1859).


Birthday of Imam Mahdi -
Sunday May 22, 2016

Secular holiday : Muhammad al-Mahdī (born 868) is the twelfth and final Shi'a Imam. He is the person believed by Shi'as to be the Mahdi; a figure considered by both Sunnis and Shias to be the ultimate saviour of humankind. Shi'as believe that he was born in 868 and has been hidden by God to later emerge to fulfill his mission. They believe that in the future he will bring absolute peace and justice throughout the world by establishing Islam as the global religion.

Death of Imam Khomeini -
Friday June 3, 2016

Secular holiday : Seyyed Ruhollah Khomeini (May 17, 1900? - June 3, 1989) was a Shi'a Muslim cleric, and the political and spiritual leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution which saw the overthrow of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the last Shah of Iran. Following the Revolution, Khomeini held the office of Supreme Leader, the paramount figure in the political system of the new Islamic Republic, and retained this position until his death. Khomeini was considered a spiritual leader to many Shi'a Muslims, and in Iran is officially addressed as Imam rather than Ayatollah. Khomeini was also a highly influential and innovative Islamic political theorist, most noted for his development of the theory of the guardianship of the jurisconsult .


Anniversary of Uprising Against the Shah -
Saturday June 4, 2016

Secular holiday : On the afternoon of June 3, 1963, Khomeini delivered a speech in which he warned the Shah that if he did not change his ways the day would come when the people would offer up thanks for his departure from the country. The immediate effect of the Imam's speech was his arrest two days later at 3 a.m. by a group of commandos, who hastily transferred him to the Qasr Prison in Tehran. As dawn broke on June 4, the news of his arrest spread first through Qom and then to other cities. Masses of angry demonstrators were confronted by tanks and ruthlessly slaughtered. It was not until six days later that order was fully restored. This uprising of Khordad 15, 1342 (the day in the Iranian calendar on which it began) marked a turning point in Iranian history. The events of the 15th of Khordadcan indeed be characterized as the prelude to the Islamic Revolution of 1978-79.

Martyrdom of Imam Ali -
Monday June 27, 2016

Secular holiday : According to tradition, three Muslim zealots (purists later termed Kharijites) had agreed to assassinate Ali, Mu'awiyah and `Amr. The assassins sent against Mu'awiyah and `Amr failed; the only assassin who succeeded was the one who attacked Ali. Ali suffered a mortal head wound on the 19th of Ramadan while he was performing morning prayers in mosque in the city of Kufa. Some say that the sword that wounded him was poisoned. According to the Shia tradition, as he was being struck, Ali said By the Lord of the Ka'bah, I have succeeded !
