Learn and Experience!

Iran is a country with thousands of years of history and culture. Many people travel to Iran to learn more about this ancient land as well as seeing the modern Iran. Since several centuries ago, Shia Islam has been the formal religion of the country and today, about 90 percent of the Iranians are Shia Muslims.
Most of the political and cultural developments in Iran are tightly connected to or originated from Shiite Islamic teachings. So, it is important to be familiar with it in order to have a proper understanding of the Iranian culture and the state. In Qom, in addition to our regular visits of the sights including the beautiful Shrine of Lady Masumah and meetings with the scholars, you will have the chance to attend a lecture about Shiite Islam with Questions and answers.

This year, some days of the Hikmat learning tour of Iran will coincide with the Ashura commemoration rituals. These rituals are some of the most important elements of the culture and identity of Shia Muslims. The historical city of Yazd is one of the best places in Iran to see the Ashura rituals. We will be in Yazd on the two main days that most of the Ashura commemorations are held. Many people from around the world travel to Yazd on those days to see Ashura in Yazd. You will have this unique opportunity to be one of them by registering in the 5th Hikmat Learning tour of Iran.

If you are interested in learning more about Shia Islam, Iranian Culture, experience Persian food and see Iran’s most important tourist attractions, don’t miss this chance!
