Maryam Naghash Zargaran-Nasim

(Voice of the Persecuted) Maryam Naghash-Zargaran – Nasim was arrested and put into prison for practicing her right to believe in the religion of her choice. In this case it is Christianity.

She was sentenced to 4 years on July 15, 2013 in Iran’s notorious Evin prison. Maryam is in ill health, and has suffered a heart attack while in prison.

Why is Maryam in prison?

When she was arrested, Maryam was involved with the establishment of an orphanage in Iran. Despite having no political agenda, an Iranian Revolutionary Court falsely declared Maryam’s Christian activities to be proof that she was ‘acting against the security of the Iranian nation’. Her imprisonment violates international law, to which Iran is a party, which guarantees freedom of religion and belief.

Maryam’s Health

In September 2013, Maryam was transferred to Modares hospital on Sunday to be treated for her heart disease. Having had heart surgery before, mental pressures in prison resulted in her heart attack, and as a result she was transferred to hospital. To date, there is still no detailed news about her condition.

Additionally, Maryam is suffering depression due to the effects of prison conditions.

Her friends, are determined to ensure that Maryam is not forgotten.

    May I please ask ——I may have missed it — but I don’t recall seeing if they allow Maryam to have a Bible with her in the prison?? You said we could use scriptural references — so it would help to know if she could look up the references or not??? Thank you!


    • Thank you for your question. No, Christian prisoners don’t have access to Bible as far as we know. UPDATE 8/28: Sharing Scripture in English is fine, most Iranians can read English. But it’s advised for the protection of those imprisoned to not share anything negative toward the Iranian government. God bless you
