Here we try to find active and passive places for earthquakes in the geographical region of Iran. The approach of Abe and Suzuki is adopted for modeling the seismic history of Iran by a complex directed network. By using the PageRank algorithm, we assign to any places in the region an activity index. Then, we determine the most active and passive places.
