Good evening

Be reliable.!

There are books that explain what we are about, but I do not know if they are translated to Arabic.

We generally recommend Freemasons for Dummies.  It isn’t perfect for all purposes, but is a generally good explanation.

There is this wikipedia article in Arabic:

https://ar.wikipedia.org/wiki/ماسونية

It could be a good start. You are not going to find a lot of literature about us in Arabic. In most Arab countries, Freemasonry is either banned or not very active.

Thank you brother I did not find anything clear in Arabic about Freemasonry and more speech is contradictory and incorrect

I agree with you. I even found a book in Arabic for you but I had to revise my judgement about it after reading just a couple of pages.

Here are the options available to you:

1 - There is an active Grand Lodge in Iraq. That’s a good news. You can contact them or go to their public events if they organise any and meet with the masons there. They would provide guidance and explain how to join them.

2 - There isn’t any active Lodge in Iraq. This means that you cannot join freemasonry.

Yes, this is true, one of my brothers said to me
There is a house in Baghdad and you have to look for it, and when you find it, they accept to enter
This is good news
And the bad news I searched for the house for two years and did not find

The lodges I could found online are all military lodges. They are run inside US military facilities in Iraq. I don’t know if they are open to locals.

Iraq is changing quickly and I hope you will find an active Lodge one day.

In the past, there were military bases, especially in Baghdad and the Spekker base, and now there is no American base in these places. American bases can not be easily accessed and my life is at risk.

Most often than not, these international military bases enjoy some sort of extraterritoriality. The military would bring with them their hospitals, restaurants, post office, administration, gyms… and if there are some Masons in the military, they would organise some lodges. But these are by no means “Iraqi Lodges” they are probably still under the Jurisdiction of some US Grand Lodge.

If your life is at risk now, I don’t think you should focus on joining the Freemasonry. Try to move to some better place in Iraq or elsewhere first. Your personal safety is more important at this stage of your life.

Good evening I am safe now and there is no danger to my life It is hard to go to the army bases at this time, as many extremists realize the threat bases and the US Embassy in Iraq. If you go to any place where the US military is, I think I will face a difficult situation.
I hope you can be more serious and let us talk more .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) You can send me any time It is better to speak alone

I prefer to respond in this forum as we share things that could be helpful to other visitors. Many people, even from your country, are reading but not necessarily opening an account and posting because they read such exchanges where their questions are already addressed.

My question is whether it is possible to set up a lodge to meet and get to know each other

You can’t set up a lodge. Freemasonry is not a franchise :) I believe that freemasonry is not legal in Iraq. That’s why you don’t find any active masons there.
