In this language challenge, we have three Persian (Farsi) speakers competing against three Azerbaijani (Azeri) speakers with a list of words and sentences. I would like to thank Aziz for helping us organize this video. Here is the link to his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCljSEpCV1AxyxuOKMepq2RA

The Persian language (Farsi) is also an ancient language which has had a huge amount of impact on other languages and cultures, mainly the Middle East, as well as Central and South Asia. Classified as one of the Western Iranian languages, Persian holds official status is Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan. Persian has strongly influenced many different languages, including numerous Turkic languages, as well as well as Armenian, Georgian, and many languages in the Indian subcontinent. Persian has a long history of literature and it was notable for being the first language in the Muslim world to break through Arabic's monopoly on writing. The Persian language has also influenced the Arabic language, although the impact of Arabic on Persian has been higher. But the influence of Persian in the Muslim world has been strong since the early days of Islam. It was even established as a court tradition instead of Arabic under many ruling Muslim dynasties.

Azerbaijani (Azeri), which is also referred to as Azeri Turkish, is a member of the Oghuz branch of the Turkic languages. The majority of Azeri speakers live in Northwestern Iran, followed by the Republic of Azerbaijan, where it has official status, along with the federal subject of Dagestan in Russia. The current Republic of Azerbaijan has historically been a part of different Iranian and Persian empires until as recent as the 19th century. Hence, despite being part of two different language families, Persian and Azeri share many common words, just as Iranians and Azerbaijanis share very deep and strong historical, cultural, and religious ties.

This is Shahrzad’s first performance since giving birth to our daughter, so officially her first video as a mother. Enjoy this week’s episode and contact us if you have any suggestions or feedback. It’s becoming a bit tough to respond to all comments on YouTube, so please contact us on Instagram, especially since YouTube comments can easily go unnoticed:

Sağlam and salim are different words. Sağlam is pure Turkish (sağ means both right and alive, and sağlam comes from it), and salim is from Arabic (from slm: trustworthy). In Turkish, we also use salim as a loan word. By coincidence, they sound similar and have the same meaning.

I appreciate your good intent in bringing people closer together. Most of these animosities we see between Iran's Turks and Persians are due to being unaware of each other life style. We as those who are against violence and hatred should take bigger steps in order to dominate ( but not suppress, because it is not democratic)radical voices from both sides.
Also ghadame no reside mobarak. :)

+dave johnson Çörek is bun in Turkish which is also bread. Ekmek is the name for any kind of bread, from lavash (şipit ekmek) to French baguette. Yemek/Aş is meal.

These two are the worst of mankind. Both are Shi'a majoos and trying to spread Shi'a majoosi filth ideology.. may Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala curse all Shia and their allies. As great scholar, Shaykh ul-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah, may Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala  have mercy upon him said the Shi'a are worst of the humans, they are the cancer of humanity, and even Athiest have better chance to enter jannah than the Shia

Bro check these DNA results please im tired of these Pan Turks

Here are some results of people from Turkey who have taken a DNA test and shared it with us on YouTube.

Note: remember the original Turks are from Central Asia and looked just like the Mongols and Hazara people of Afghanistan. (slanted eyes, red cheeks) The people from Turkey and Azerbaijan are not real Turks!

Note: West Asian is mostly Iran on these tests and they show also lots of Greek DNA.
