My apologies, I was told by a psychologist that telling someone they are wrong has the opposite effect, they become more entrenched!
However, this is me.....
Sir, my middle name is Raza, also Persian, and means contentment, and I am very content by finding a Greater Love.
There is a saying in the language of intellect, not Persian, that something that does not evolve stagnates and then becomes extinct. You may observe this in the way 'muslim' countries that once ruled science and the world are now enslaved by the west and dictators because they lost their way. Your present situation should be a wake up call to your intellect that something is wrong with what you believe and that is why you are losing the race. If your beliefs do not have a positive impact on what you are, then your beliefs are wrong and need changing.
We all need to be aware of where we have come from as culture is important, but so is not continuing the wrongs we have inherited from our ancestors
Please add 'Magi' after Imams in the following:
2:170 When it is said to them, "Follow what God has revealed", they say, "Nay! We will follow the ways of our ancestors.” What! Even though their ancestors (and the ancient Imams) were lacking in understanding and were not rightly guided?
[5:104, 10:78, 11:62, 11:87, 21:53, 34:43, 38:7, 43:23. Hudan and derivatives = Prominent = Bright = Lighted = Clearly visible = Leading = Guidance = Lighthouse = A well-lit road = A landmark of identification in the desert or sea]
2:171 The likeness of such blind followers is that (of a herd of sheep) which hear the shepherd’s call, but hear in it nothing more than a sound and a shout. Deaf, dumb, blind, for they do not use their reason.
[This is subhuman level of existence 7:179. ‘Unq = Shepherd’s call. Shepherd here pertains to religious leaders who have learned some meaningless words or tenets, and a herd of sheep is the masses that blindly follow them. Kufr embraces blind following in addition to denying, opposing, or concealing the truth. Perceptual senses alone cannot distinguish human beings from the rest of the animal kingdom. It is the intellectual analysis that sets them apart]
