I've tried to gather information on this page that deals specifically with Iranian religious movements rather than generically with Islam. Massood Cajee's Dunya is an excellent site which offers an introduction to Islam as well as pointers to other sites. An online copy of the Qur'an is also available and has been of some help to me in the preparation of my own pages.

Ahlul-Bayt Student Association
This page deals with the Ahlul-Bayt, the family of Mohammad who trace their descent through his daughter Fatimeh. The Shi'ia, or party of 'Ali, took their political stance in support of her husband against the claims of the Caliphs. 'Ali himself is the fourth Caliph of Sunni Islam and the first Imam of the Shi'ites.

Joseph Peterson has plans to expand it to include information on the special language used to write the sacred texts, called Avestan.

Shia Home Page
Shi'ism is the particular belief of Islam most widely followed in Iran, in contrast with the more widely followed Sunni'ism. My own pages contain a history of the schism which precipitated the division, but Farrukh Zaidi's page offers more details and a religious perspective.

This is a comprehensive set of links about the Bahai religion which originated near Shiraz in 1844 and was immediately supressed as a heresy of Shi'ism. The site contains a useful introduction to the faith which includes its early history

Sufism Home Page
The Sufi is one who moves towards the Truth by means of Love and devotion. Since only one who is perfect is capable of realizing the Truth, the sufi strives his utmost for Perfection. Sufis believe the only way to become perfect is to purify oneself under the training of a perfect Sufi Master
In common with all Sufi orders, the Nimatullahi Order stems from an initiatic chain, going back to the beginning of Islam, with Muhammad being considered the first Sufi master. The word Nimatullah is derived from the name of Shah Nimatullah Wali, who founded the order at the end of the 14th century C.E. and was one of the great Sufi masters of Iran.
