Why did Iran accept Islam?

In the next newsletter, I unpack these interesting and common questions (usually from South Asians) and respond to them by giving adequate historic context and the contemporary religious/political dynamics.

1. Why did Iranians accept the 7th century "Arab religion" when they "dislike Arabs".

2. Why did Iranians accept Islam —despite— their "great civilization"?
