The original copy of this historical response letter from King of Persia Yazdgird III
(632–651 C.E) to the Arab Caliph of Muslims Omar ibn Al-Khattab
is in the British Museum, placed in a secure storage area and currently
unavailable to public view due to political correctness and also to
avoid damaging the relations between the West and OPEC
These policies might change in a very near future as the world
heads towards the new era of renewable alternative energy sources and
also with the current rise of the far-Right political parties in the
West as well as people’s awareness and concern about a major Islamic
threat within their own borders.
Unless we learn from history, we are destined to repeat it...
The date in which this letter has been written is after the Battle of Ghadesiyeh
(al-Qādisiyyah) 16–19th November 636 C.E.
From: Omar ibn Al-Khattab
Khalifat Al Muslemin (Caliph of Muslims)
To: Yazdgird III
Shah of the Fars (Emperor of Persia)
Bismillah, ar-Rahman, ar-Rahim
I do not foresee a good future for you and your nation, save your acceptance of my terms and your submission to me.
There was a time when your country ruled half the world, but now see how your sun has set.
On all fronts your armies have been defeated and your
nation is condemned to extinction. I point out to you the path whereby
you might escape this fate. Namely, that you begin worshipping the one
god, the unique deity, the only god who created all that is. I bring you
his message. Order your nation to cease the false worship of fire and
to join us, that they may join the truth.
Worship Allah the creator of the world. Worship Allah and accept Islam as the path of salvation.
