  Majlis of Iran - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Majlis of Iran (Persian:مجلس, originally an Arabic word for "assembly"), is a legislative body of Iran.
Before the Islamic Revolution it Majlis was also the name of the lower house of the Iranian Legislature from 1906 to 1979, the upper house being the Senate.
Even though the Majlis has been known to voice opposition to both the Pahlavis and Islamic Republic policies, its power is not as great as that of the legislative bodies in the United States.

Saddam used, abused, distorted and usurped the legislative functions of the Majlis, since it was founded under the Constitution of 1970: but he did not disband it.
Those numbers indicate that, even with Saddam's distortions, the Majlis represented a practical political means to provide representation at the national level from all areas of Iraq and from all political, ethnic or religious factions.
Although the Majlis electoral system has not been exercised since 1989, it could be re-launched with appropriate alignment of seat allocations to fit current population demographics.

 Majlis al Jin: Nov 1994 & June 2001
Majlis Al Jinn is one of several sink holes at 1200-1400 meters altitude in the Jebel Bani Jaber mountains between wadis Shab and Nam in Oman.
Majlis Al Jinn itself was discovered in 1983 by Don Davidson, a geologist who was for fifteen years on the payroll of the Omani government for work entailing tasks as onerous as hiking, exploring, and abseiling.
Majlis Al Jinn itself was mentioned in a recent issue of Oman Today, but because the article failed to give instructions on how to find it, few who come this far reach that particular spot.

 Title: Majlis (Book)
At any rate, al-Shahrastânî's Majlis, as well as his Qur’ân commentary, the Mafâtîh al-asrâr, and his Kitâb al-Musâra‘a in which he refutes Avicenna's metaphysics on the basis of Ismâ‘îlî views and arguments, clearly reflect Ismâ‘îlî perspectives.
The Majlis, on the two worlds of order (amr) and creation (khalq), was originally delivered as a sermon around the year 540/1145 to a Twelver Shî‘i audience in Khwârazm.
A closer study of the Majlis and other Ismâ‘îlî-inspired works of al-Shahrastânî will be invaluable not only for appreciating the complex religious thought of this scholar and his intellectual heritage, but also for a better understanding of the doctrines of the Nizârî Ismâ‘îlîs of the Alamût period whose literature has perished almost completely.

 Iran’s Prospects Under the 7th Majlis
Majlis, including the Speaker who were allowed to run, and chose not to boycott the elections, failed to receive enough votes in the Tehran precinct.
Because the Majlis is traditionally subservient to the regime’s top leadership in foreign affairs, the new legislature should not be expected to undertake any initiatives in Iran’s relations with the outside world.
Majlis now out of the loop, and with looming budget deficits in the midst of record high oil prices, the new legislature may prove more amenable to this venture.

Meanwhile, elections in October 1981 brought Seyed Ali Khamenei, one of the founders of the IRP and a member of the Majlis, to power as president.

This new round of confrontation, now with the Majlis, is taking place while the president’s portrait is displayed at every demonstration in front of Tehran’s foreign embassies and, in the words of political observers, while the president is engaged in showmanship, rather than attending to real issues of the country and the people.
One Majlis deputy told Rooz, on condition of anonymity, that the president seems to be moving in the direction of discrediting the Majlis in the eyes of the public.
One of the Majlis deputies complained that the Department of Education had seen some eleven Ministers and some 43 deputies, most of whom were from the right-wing circles who comprised a good pool to choose the new minister from, which Ahmadinejad has chosen to ignore.
