Yazidism: the religion and beliefs

from Wikipedia – Feb 17, 2022

My cmnt: I do not trust Wikipedia for anything that can even slightly be used to further the Leftist agenda of the democratic party. That is a LOT of things.

My cmnt: I’m only including the first paragraph of the Wiki article. Click the link above to read the whole piece. In general it seems to be a fair and accurate assessment of their beliefs.

Yazidism (Kurdish: Êzdiyatî, Êzdîtî) or Sharfadin[7] (Kurdish: شه‌رفه‌دین, Şerfedîn)[8][9][10] is a monotheistic ethnic religion that has roots in a western Iranic pre-Zoroastrian religion directly derived from the Indo-Iranian tradition.[11] Yazidism is followed by the mainly Kurmanji-speaking Yazidis and is based on belief in one God who created the world and entrusted it into the care of seven Holy Beings, known as Angels.[7][12][13] Preeminent among these Angels is Tawûsê Melek (also spelled as “Melek Taûs”), who is the leader of the Angels and who has authority over the world.
