Ruhollah Khomeini (24 September 1902 - 3 June 1989), known in the West as Ayatollah Khomeini, was an Iranian religious leader and politician, and leader of the 1979 Iranian Revolution which saw the overthrow of Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the Shah of Iran. Following the revolution, Khomeini became the country's Supreme Leader, a non-democratic position created in the constitution as the highest ranking political and religious authority of the nation, which he held until his death.

Jame Mosque of Yazd

The Jāmeh Mosque of Yazd (Persian: مسجد جامع یزد‎ - Masjid-e-Jāmeh Yazd) is the grand, congregational mosque (Jāmeh) of Yazd city, within the Yazd Province of Iran.

The XII-century mosque is still in use today. It was first built under Ala'oddoleh Garshasb of the Al-e Bouyeh dynasty. The mosque was largely rebuilt between 1324 and 1365, and is one of the outstanding XIV century buildings of Iran.

The mosque is a fine specimen of the Azari style of Persian architecture. It is crowned by a pair of minarets, the highest in Iran, and the portal's facade is decorated from top to bottom in dazzling tile work, predominantly blue in colour. Within is a long arcaded courtyard where, behind a deep-set south-east iwan, is a sanctuary chamber (shabestan). This chamber, under a squat tiled dome, is exquisitely decorated with faience mosaic.

Its tall faience Mihrab, dated 1365, is one of the finest of its kind in existence.

Nearby are the tulips.

Volunteer Workers of Construction Jihad (many thanks to one Russian user for info) and tractor MTZ-7 Belarus.

Jihad of Construction or Construction Jihad (Persian: جهاد سازندگی Jahād-e Sāzandegī), or simply Jihad (جهاد Jahād) was one of Organizations of the Iranian Revolution. The organization began as a movement of volunteers to help with the 1979 harvest, but soon was institutionalized and took on a broader, more developmental role in the countryside. It was involved with road building, piped water, electrification, clinics, schools, and irrigation canals. It also provided "extension services, seeds, loans," etc. to small farmers.

In 2001 it was merged with the Agriculture Ministry to form the Ministry of Agriculture Jihad.


In 1958, the design was finalized, made prototypes, tested and given to the preparation of production drawings for the tractor MTZ-7-terrain four-wheel drive. The first design of the tractor was designed with front drive axle with a military car-terrain vehicle GAZ-67, but did not have an adjustable track width of the front wheels, and therefore does not ensure row works. Due to the insufficient strength of GAZ-67 axle tractor failed the test. The problem was solved after the tractor installed axle GAZ-63. It started production of cabs for Belarus tractors. The design of removable cab allowed to use it on the tractor completely closed and a tent. With the use of a cabin significantly improved the working conditions of tractor driver.
