Default Anyone wants an Iranian friend?

I am an absolute beginner living in a Muslim country(Iran) .I have so many questions and unique limitations that this forum doesn't seem like a suitable medium.
If you are an experienced brewer please do add me on Facebook or email me.
I promise I'll make a good protégé :-)

Ok here goes:
We add sugar and yeast to 0.0% beer and after 3-5 days of fermentation we have beer.
For carbonation we bottle it early as the bubbling is dying down.
This time around we were a little too late and it is not carbonated enough.
Is there any way to carbonate it now?
What do you suggest?

saied, you want that primary fermentation to be about three weeks long. The initial phase of fermentation takes place in 3-5 days, but it is still going on after that. Get a hydrometer. When your specific gravity levels are the same three times in a row (over three to five days), then bottle. After you bottle and depending on the type of beer you've made (ale or a heavy stout, for example), carbonation can take 3 or more weeks. There's a good carb'ing thread (or three) on here if you search. Are you taking alcohol free beer and trying to use the yeast/sugar to give it alcohol? If that's the case, there might also be threads on here about that. What happens if you get caught with alcohol in Iran?

So you have taken a non-alcoholic beer and added sugar and yeast to it? Interesting. The yeast in the beer is still alive. Once your sugar has completed fermentation and you want carbonate it, add approximately 6-7 grams of sugar per liter of beer, then cap you beer. The remaining yeast will eat this extra sugar and carbonate your beer. It could take 1-3 weeks to carbonate and it will work best if kept around 70F or 21-22C.

Yes it is 0.0% beer based.
If you are caught drunk the Islamic law says 40 lashes
But I'm not sure that is always carried out. Specially in big cities.
If you are a producer or seller you will go to court and get jail time.
And there is the risk that parents and family find out.
It is taboo with the old generation but it is OK in urban areas and between youth.

Are the yeast still alive or should we add yeast as well?
And how much yeast you reckon?

No need to add yeast. The biggest issue with carving beer is the amount of sugar. Too much sugar and it will be over carbed, not enough and it will be under carbed. As said before try 6-7grams (I think it is a little over a teaspoon) to a liter when bottling
