Omid Dana (calls himself Sharifi as he hates anything related to Arabs and the Arab language) is an infamous Shia-born convert to Zoroastrianism (common amongst Iranian born-Shias), Iranian ultra-nationalist, racist, and apologist of Shi’ism and the Iranian Khomeinist Shi’ite regime. Sounds contradicting? You will find out why there is no contradiction in all of that and why Iranian ultra-nationalists champion Shi’ism.
Abul-Qasim al-Taymi al-Isfahani al-Shafi’i (457- 535 H) was a major authority of Ahlus-Sunnah, one of the Shuyukh of al-Ibn al-Sam’ani. He studied in Isfahan (Sunni stronghold in pre-Rafidi-Safawi Persia) and amongst his teacher was a female, ‘Aishah bint al-Hassan al-Warkaniyyah al-Isfahaniyyah, a praised and reliable transmitter of Hadith. He also studied in Baghdad (Iraq), Nayshabur (Persia, Khorasan), and Ray (modern-day Tehran). He was buried in Isfahan (the graves of many classical Sunni scholars that exist all over Iran were desecrated by the anti-Sunni Rafidhi Twelver Shia Safavid empire and its spiritual descendants).
There is no doubt that traditional attire in the lands of the Muslims is beautiful and should be maintained. However, many Muslims hold unjustifiable (at worst) or accepted (at best) opinions and try to shove them down the throats of others as the golden truth.
You have the Pseudo-Sufis who literally wear turbans with sandal pins (‘of the Prophet’) on their heads (and even cover their places of worship with it!) and constantly rant about how their evil boogeyman, the ‘Najdi-Vahhabis’, have abandoned wearing the holy turban (not true, meany Atharis wear Turbans in lands were turbans are traditional like Mauretania, Sudan, Yemen, etc.).
