The choice of the name "SIMOURQ" for our association carries profound symbolic significance. One of the literary masterpieces centered around SIMOURQ is "Mantegh al-Tayr" by Attar Neyshaburi, a revered work of Persian mysticism composed in the 6th century AH.

In Sufi literature, the soul of an individual is likened to a bird, and its body to a cage. This bird is perpetually eager to escape its cage. This literature primarily serves to elucidate this yearning.

The narrative of "Mantegh al-Tayr" begins with the assembly of birds, declaring their desire for a king to submit to and acknowledge. This king, known as SIMOURQ, is said to hold sway over both the East and the West. They embark on a journey to find and dwell under its shadow, to be the subjects of its reign, heed its commands, and abide by its decrees. It is rumored that there exists a king, known as SIMOURQ, whose dominion spans the Orient and the Occident. Let us go to find him and entrust ourselves to him.

In this story, a congregation of birds, emblematic of seekers on the path of truth, unite in their quest for SIMOURQ, the embodiment of Divine Truth. Amidst this journey, the Hoopoe bird serves as their guide and the venerable sage. They make their way towards Mount Qaf, the abode of SIMOURQ.

At the outset of their journey, some of the birds, using various pretexts, abandon their quest. The Hoopoe, by recounting the tale of Sheikh San'an, persuades the rest to continue their path. The birds encounter seven arduous valleys, symbolizing the stages of spiritual journey: Quest, Love, Knowledge, Detachment, Unity, Bewilderment, Poverty, and Annihilation. Many birds falter and fall along this arduous path. Only thirty birds persevere and ultimately reach the realm of SIMOURQ. In essence, these thirty birds (Si-Mourq in Persian means thirty chickens or birds) are the SIMOURQ themselves, having transcended the trials of the seven valleys to become one with SIMOURQ.

Each one of us, having left behind our homes, families, abodes, and lands in search of SIMOURQ (inner peace and the desired life), is, within ourselves, a SIMOURQ in pursuit.

In truth, we immigrants possess all the factors for success and achieving perfection. We need only discover it within ourselves and nurture and elevate it.

About us

Since February 2019, the Persian section of SIMOURQ news, titled "LuxembourgCheKhabr," was established by the SIMOURQ Association with the aim of providing information on ceremonies, new laws, and government updates in Luxembourg. Until the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic, this section operated as a newsletter and only became active in case of the announcement of a new program or law. However, with the arrival of the virus, thanks to the determination of the board of directors and the help of SIMOURQ Association volunteers, the translation of official statements, statistics, and recommendations from the Luxembourg Ministry of Health into Persian began. Gradually, after the exceptional reception from Persian speakers, this section was promoted and started to cover daily and useful news and events in Luxembourg for the general public free of charge.

Enrichment of Contents:

In March 2020, to meet the needs of all, including non-literate individuals and Persian-speaking migrants, "LuxembourgCheKhabr" introduced weekly audio broadcasts in Persian. These broadcasts also addressed topics related to COVID-19, providing crucial information to a population often underserved in terms of official communication.

Evolution of LuxembourgCheKhabr:

In the following months, new programs such as the educational podcast "Hamzaban," providing useful information to facilitate integration regarding the history of Luxembourg, the royal family, Luxembourgish culture, the Luxembourgish flag, geography, etc., in Persian, were added to "LuxembourgCheKhabr."

Diversification and Future:

Starting from September 2022, the production of educational videos titled "SAIL-Service d'Accompagnement à l'Intégration au Luxembourg" also began, providing information on the use of the Guichet portal and administrative procedures such as required documents, laws, how to fill out forms, etc., in Persian. All stages of production for these videos were carried out 100% by the editorial team trained by the SIMOURQ Association.

In November 2022, reports and video interviews in Persian were also added to the Persian section of SIMOURQ news, broadcasted on social media platforms YouTube and Instagram, and shared by other broadcasting platforms.

Challenges and Needs:

Since November 2022, in addition to the specialized and comprehensive Persian section that operates to cover news, sections in Arabic, Kurdish, Turkish, Urdu, Spanish, French, and English are also under development. However, the main challenge currently lies in constraints such as financial limitations and a shortage of resources to sustain these activities within the SIMOURQ Association. Adding new languages for immigrants and citizens is part of the prospects for WWW.SIMOURQNEWS.COM, but the primary concern of the association's at present is the financial issues and necessary equipment to continue these activities.
