Zoroastrians

As in the case of Christians and Jews, Zoroastrians Iran are recognized as an official religious minority. They are permitted to elect one representative to the Majles and generally enjoyed the same civil liberties as Muslims.

Zoroastrians believe in one supreme God, called “Ahuramaza”, who is opposed by “Ahriman”, and embodiment of evil. Every human being must cooperate with God to defeat evil and bring the world to perfection. This can be achieved by good thought, good word and good deed. After death the immortal soul of the departed person is judged according to all the good deeds done by him or her in this world. The soul then enjoys the pleasures of paradise or undergoes the tortures of hell.

Zoroastrians also believe in the appearance of the last savior, called “Sosayant”, and in the final judgment day with the resurrection of all who have died. Yazd is the most important Zoroastrian Center in modern Iran. Although there are practically no Zoroastrians in Isfahan now, the remains of a fire temple on the city’s outskirts bear witness to their presence here in earlier periods.
