    General CommentFirdous E Bareen was the name of the garden made by Hassan-i-Sabah and his band of Nizari Ismaili Shiite fugitives (the Hashshashin) in the Elburz mountains of Northern Iran, imitating paradise or heaven. This paradise was furnished with all luxuries of life, even a rivulet of wine and was used to recruit assassins to Hassan's militia. The person to be recruited was drugged to simulate a "dying" to later have them awaken in a garden flowing with wine and served a sumptuous feast by virgins. The supplicant was then convinced he was in Heaven and that Sabbah was a minion of the divinity and that all of his orders should be followed, even to death.
