"History" in this article might be copy vio from [1].
  • History content was added at version March 2005 (diff[2])
  • Website above exists in Internet Archive of November 2004 [3]

This content is not much the same word-by-word, but is almost the same. Especially, using Islamic Calender, and Hazrat Ma'soomeh "(AS)" is characteristic. -Kotoito 15:09, 28 August 2005 (UTC)

Ive made some edits to avoid copyright tags on the page. The page isnt copyvioed, because the only editor anywhere to have used the word "Al e Buyeh" (seen in the text) is me. Same for the name "Khoda Bandeh", which I personally translated to be the equivalent of Oljeitu (also known as Nicholas). Nevertheless I made many changes to put the Copyvio claim to a rest. Lets see what Behrooz will come up with next :)--Zereshk 00:18, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for your edit. And I can traslate it into Japanese at my ease. But I have one more favor to ask of you that you add same edit to Qom Province. Kotoito 00:58, 29 August 2005 (UTC)
I'll get to it in a few days.--Zereshk 19:37, 29 August 2005 (UTC)

Abbasid era taken out[edit]

Emily,

In your edits, you deleted two paragraphs pertaining to the Abbasid era history of Qom. Is there any particular reason for doing so?--Zereshk 18:41, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Spelling[edit]

Could we decide on one spelling only, so as to be consistent within the article? 158.143.162.119 11:44, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Some Ideas[edit]

I was looking for carpets on ebay, and came up with antique carpets from Qom, and then found out about the carpet industry in Qom, which is big, 1500 looms. How about adding this? I think you also need a map of where it is, geography, a picture of it, climate, demographics, culture, law, more links... (scope_creep 20:12, 13 July 2006 (UTC))

If youre able to back it up with sources, go 4 it. Add it in.--Zereshk 23:29, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

Largest seminary[edit]

The city is home to Iran's largest seminary, competing only with Najaf in Iraq. This is odd- competing on what basis? Largest seminary in Shia Islam? All Islam? All religions? In any case I think it should be 'rivalled only by'- Qom 'competes' rather successfully at least with everywhere else in Iran on any of these terms. HenryFlower 13:14, 19 August 2006 (UTC)

Persian WP article[edit]

Currently*, the interlanguage link leads to an empty page. I cannot believe there is no article on this city at the Persian WP. Can somebody verify and either remove or correct the link? – Wikipeditor

Manufacturing murderers[edit]

I have noticed that Qom is actually the source whence a great many murderers have received doctoral-level training in the areas of murder, torture, public corruption, and stealing the oil revenue to perpetuate this cycle. These mullahs are highly dangerous to society as a whole, especially Iran.

Can we add this to the article?--71.105.247.132 16:47, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Well of course. It certainly wouldn't be POV to do that. Dumbass. --76.209.50.222 06:59, 18 February 2007 (UTC)

Pronunciation?[edit]

Clarify 'advantage'[edit]

For this sentence, " Qom's proximity to Tehran has given it an advantage as well," I would like to know what that advantage is. ````

Being close to the capital has allowed the clerical establishment easy access to monitor the affairs and decisions of state. Many Grand Ayatollahs hold offices in both Tehran and Qom. Many people simply commute between the two cities as they are only 100 km away. That is clearly an advantage that Mashad, Isfahan, Tabriz,etc dont have.--Zereshk 20:13, 25 June 2007 (UTC)
The Tehran and the holy city of Qom are nearly 100 miles apart (according to the article), not 100 km. 17:46, 13 October 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.85.229.248 (talk)

Temporary marriage[edit]

The temporary marriage quote doesnt belong in this article. Qom has no physical preference or superiority over other places in terms of temporary marriage. Temp marriage can happen anywhere in Iran.

This article is merely a geographical article. The material about Temp Marriage is appropriate for the article Temporary marriage. Please have it removed.--Zereshk 20:13, 25 June 2007 (UTC)

uranium processing facility[edit]

no mention of same

can someone give GPS coordinates? (like it is given in Natanz)

Geography[edit]

The paragraph under the title "geography" contains absolutely nothing about geography. --dunnhaupt (talk) 12:36, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
