The emblem of the IRI has the word 'Allah' designed in it. I see pictures of projects (ships, pipes, helicopters, etc) where this emblem is etched or painted on that are not necessarily 'clean'. I thought there may be some sensitivity to that. Out of curiosity, is this negligence or are there a series of rules on when items can be emblazoned with the emblem? If there are, is there a link to refer to?Thanks!Mamdali
Nothing wrong with it. It's just a name, description in human made language. It actually says La Elaha Elallah.It's a different matter in Sunnism, where Arabic language and identity are superior to all others, and where the language has a divine, superior position. Maybe this also explains why many non-Arabic countries favour Arabic as the state language to their own (Phoenician, Berber, etc.)
Hmmm,I thought there are special rules on where and when and how the word 'Allah' can be inscribed or etched even amongst the Shii'a. Mamdali
Eh.... In the emblem it just says "Allah". La ilaha illa Allah is on the flag...
Its a combination of La ilaha illa Allah that together forms Allah. And the middle part gonna represent a sword. The word on the flag is Allaho Akbar...
See my post above:)
Rook, you are wrong as usual. The flag and especially the emblem has messages in it that exceed a mere alphabet. Additionally, please don't comment unless you can read and write Arabic.Mamdali
It is VERY obvious to anyone who can read that the emblem includes just one word and that is "Allah". I can read Arabic script albeit slowly and with effort. Semantics are another matter altogether, but are we not talking about what the emblem says per se?And what a nice move: "Rook, you are wrong as usual.......Additionally, please don't comment unless you can read and write Arabic."Arrogance, par excellence. How cute is that... did that hurt so much?
designed by Hamid Nadimi, is a highly stylized composite of various Islamic elements: a geometrically symmetric form of the word Allah ("God") and overlapping parts of the phrase La ilaha illa Allah ("There is no god but Allah"), forming a monogram in the form of a tulip.
Rook, your ignorance and lack of education is par on the course. You have no idea what you're taking about. Go do some research and at least try to learn. And whoever taught you Arabic script, ask for a refund.
Cheers Nonbarbari: although I have no idea what it refers to by "overlapping parts of the phrase"..
I saw it once in documentary, there they show in digital how them mean or how the designer have done the overlapping part. But I can not find it now. But I am sitting here at my work, so when Im home gonna try find it...
