I wouldn’t neccesarily elope but I don’t think I’d invite them.

I am not Persian and so don’t know any of the cultural nuances at play here, but why not invite both of them and be sure that they are both seated far away from each other?  You can let each of them know that the other may be attending and leave it up to them what they decide to do.  Maybe aunts and uncles who are more level headed can be in charge of making sure nothing gets out of hand?

Perhaps try talking to them and seeing if they can be reasonable? Like, they don’t have to talk to each other, they don’t even have to sit anywehere near each other, but you’d like them both be there whatdoyousay?

If they absolutely refuse to be reasonable, invite neither.

I would talk to each of them, tell them that you wish for them to be there (if you do), and that they must behave if they want to be invited. Then do a few test runs before the big day, and have your bridal party help keep them separate. Hopefully they can get over themselves for a few days for your wedding
