Freedom of religion is a great thing. However, Iran, during the Islamic Revolution, wasn’t too big on the whole freedom thing. The regime wanted everyone to follow Islam to the letter. Marji is actually devoutly religious- she believes in God, and she has strong faith. So why does she have a problem with this? She believes that her faith in God doesn’t depend on how much hair shows through a veil.
A few questions to think about are:
- Does Marji really talk to God, or are her conversation a literary device?
- How does Marji show her faith in God?
- Does Marji lose her faith when she moves to Vienna?
Marji believes in God, but she doesn’t necessarily believe in religion and the customs that surround it.
