    I'm not sure if this saying is prevalent in Iran, so much, but I think you could say the following without much issue:
    Yâ aknun yâ hargez/hicvaqt.

    That was Persian, by the way.

    Interesting, only English and French can use the idiom with the verb: It's now or never. I wonder if French can also say only: Maintenant ou jamais as well.
