>>4500242>Not all of them. Bukhari is not an Arab for example.
Bukhari and Muslim were both Persian and wrote the 2 main books of Sunni Hadith. Shia reject their works and have 4 main books of Hadith that were all written by Arabs.>Only that Shia Islam exists largely the way it does today in its modern orthodoxy from how the Persian sect of Twelver Shiites set it up to be.
Twelver Shia Islam’s structure and foundations was completely set up and defined by the 1200s at the latest. Safavids didn’t come to power until the 1500s. Shiism only saw some change after the Islamic revolution when Khomeini came to power and made his brand of Shiism that rejects many aspects of sectarian Shiism Iran’s state religion.
Since Khomeini created a new Islamic state and wanted to expand it to the entire Muslim world, he had to appeal to Sunni’s, and so made his brand of Islam compatable with Sunnism.
You can say Khomeinism is basically Sunnism that still follows the 12 imams.>You can categorically find many records and attested statements about Persians even when they were fucking Sunni having sympathies and leaning toward Ali
You are aware Sunni’s consider Ali the 4th rightly guided Caliph right?>due to his treatment of them as equals
Any sources of Ali treating them any differently than any of the caliphs before him?
Ali, Hassan, and Hussein were in the armies that conquered and destroyed the Sassanids, and they killed many Persians. Ali and Hassan also suppressed and put down uprisings in Persia when they were Caliphs.
When the Muslims conquered Persia, Omar as caliph gave Zoroastrians dhimmi status (same status as Jews and Christians) and had Salman Al-Farsi make the first translation of the Qur’an into Persian. Though today under the Islamic Republic Iranians have to learn the Qur’an in Arabic and Zoroastrians are considered najis (same category as dogs and pigs) along with Christians and Jews.
