Hello Hussein.  Welcome to our forum.

I’m very sorry to say that Google translate is not always very good when it comes to translating Arabic.  My GUESS is that your meant to say: “I have some questions about joining Freemasonry”.  Is this correct?

If so, sadly I am not aware of any Masonic Lodges in Iraq, meaning that it would not be possible for you to become a Freemason.

The funniest translation ever :)

If the mod doesn’t mind, as I am fluent in Arabic, I translated what Dan-O said:

حسين 

Dan-O على حسب ما قاله الأخ

لا توجد هيئة ماسونية في العراق لذلك لا يمكنكم الالتحاق بالماسونية

و شكرا

There is nothing you can do.  There are no lodges in Iraq, and you can’t become a Mason without joining a lodge, so you cannot become a Freemason.  If you ever move to a country where there are lodges, then you could become a Mason.

Alhaidary / You are welcome indeed.

You can’t travel to a country, become a freemason then go back to Iraq.

To become a freemason you need to live, usually for many years, in a country where freemasonry is legal and active. You can then apply to join. You have to be local at that moment.

Freemasonry is not just a membership. We meet frequently for lodges, rehearsal and other purposes. That’s why you cannot join by distance or by travelling as a tourist.
