Word of the Day- ghesmat

Today's word of the day is something that I think a lot of Iranians are big believers in: 

قسمت, ghesmat, kismet/destiny/fate

I feel like at the end of every story I hear from an Iranian, it's always "ghesmate dige! it's fate!" Another common phrase is, "hālā bebinim ghesmat chi mishe, well, let's see what fate has in store". 

Are you a believer in ghesmat, too?

  1. Goodness, I never realised qesmat was the same as kismet! So it's a bit like sahm and bakhsh?
