Shirzad Sharif's Royal Orders, Decorations and Badges



Most Functional Monarchies are Military Institutions and as such most members of Royal & Imperial families are awarded visible military honours typically in recognition of individual merit, that often comes with distinctive insignia such as collars, medals, badges, and sashes.

Modern honour systems of state orders and dynastic orders emerged from the culture of orders of chivalry of the Middle Ages.

The word order (Latin: ordo), in the case referred to in this article, can be traced back to the chivalric orders, including the military orders. Orders often come in multiple classes, including knights and dames in imitation of the original chivalric orders.

While these chivalric orders were "societies, fellowships and colleges of knights",[2] founded by the Holy See or European monarchs in imitation of the military orders of the Crusades, granting membership in such societies gradually developed into an honour that could be bestowed in recognition of service or to ensure the loyalty of a certain clientele.

Modern orders are usually open to all citizens of a particular country, regardless of status, sex, race or creed; there may be a minimum age for eligibility. Nominations are made either by private citizens or by government officials, depending on the country. An order may be revoked if the holder is convicted of a crime or renounces citizenship.

Some people nominated for an award may refuse it and orders are usually accepted in a bilateral agreement manner.





IRAN - The Imperial Order of Az-Zukhruf (نشان الزخرف)
The Order is the Highest Order of Iran.

Surah Az-Zukhruf (Arabic: الزخرف‎, "Ornaments of Gold, Luxury") is the 43rd chapter (surah), of the Blessed Holy and Noble Quran, the central religious text of Islam. It contains 89 verses (ayat). Ornaments of Gold, or Surat Az-Zukhruf, is the 43rd surah of the Quran containing a total of 89 verses. Named after the golden ornaments recognized in verse 35 and again in verse 53, this surah dates back to the Second Meccan Period before the Prophet Muhammad’s migration to Medina.

Ornaments of Gold is a surah that acts as a reminder to believers that the goodness of God cannot be found within wealth and material power. The surah rejects the claim of disbelievers that prophets, leaders and worthy figures should be marked by their riches and thereby empowers them to refrain from temptations, indulgences and distractions. The surah warns disbelievers who succumb to the “mere enjoyments of this life” (43:17) of a terrible and tormented afterlife and it encourages believers to relish not in riches but in their faith and love of God. The surah also repeatedly addresses the fact that the angels are not God's daughters but his faithful servants (43:19).

نَصْرٌ مِّنَ اللَّهِ وَفَتْحٌ قَرِيبٌ





The above medals although beautiful and being part of Shirzad Sharif's collection are not heavenly medals, heavenly medals and orders are only issued and can only be issued by heavenly beings and can only as such dictate the fate of humanity due to their divine & heavenly attributes. Such attributes in my humble opinion which would dictate and save the entire realms of creation and world would & should in an Islamic country be based solely on the Surah's of the Holy & Noble Quran.


Each Surah of the Holy and Blessed & Noble Quran could establish order in this world, in fact each Ayat, each Blessed Word and even each Blessed Letter of the Noble & Holy Quran could also establish heavenly order in this world and as such in my humble opinion and based on my musicians outlook in the Islamic world we should have & establish orders solely based on these Noble Surahs and verses instead of all other man made orders, which would completely and totally be to protect Ummat Al-Nabi only defensively based entirely on kindness & divine blessings in order to fulfill our duties and help serve Allah (swt), Allah (swt)'s creations and all of humanity, Insha'Allah! Ameen Ya Rabul Alameen!
