New release from Ayat Allah ‘Ali Hussayni Khamina’i: “The Youth Will Witness the Palestinian Peoples Return to Palestine”

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and greetings be upon our Master and Prophet, Ab-al-Qassem Al-Mustafa Muhammad, and upon his pure, immaculate and infallible household, especially the one remaining with Allah on earth

I would like to congratulate all you dear brothers, the honorable participants and the esteemed ambassadors of Islamic countries who are present at the meeting, on the auspicious Eid ul-Fitr. Also, I would like to congratulate the great people of Iran who really and truly deserve to be respected, admired and congratulated on this eid. Our people went through a warm, enthusiastic and meaningful month of Ramadhan. By Allah’s favor, today – the day of Eid ul-Fitr – they will receive divine rewards, mercy and kindness towards themselves. I also wish to congratulate the Muslim Ummah.

I insist on reviving and highlighting the phrase “The Muslim Ummah” in the minds of all Muslims, in particular Muslim officials. This is because the enemies of Islam and Muslims have always tried to consign the phrase “The Muslim Ummah” to oblivion so that we forget that this great approximately 2-billion group of people in tens of Islamic countries are a single unit. And the enemies have unfortunately succeeded to that end.

Today, if you look at our region, you will see that instead of deploying forces between Islam and kufr, and between believers and transgressors, the deployments are between Muslims themselves. An Islamic country with Muslim people but with evil – in the true sense of the word – rulers which stand beside the usurping Zionist regime instead of showing enmity towards it. It works, speaks and chants slogans in favor of that regime. That is while it fights against an Islamic country. The enemies have unfortunately succeeded in doing this: they have created deployments and rows among Islamic countries and among brothers. The world of Islam should remedy this.

Notice that a usurping enemy has shown an active and criminal presence in the center of Islamic countries – that is to say, Palestine. This makes it necessary for all Muslims to be sensitive towards this matter, to deploy their forces against this enemy and to prevent him from committing his crimes. However, instead of doing so, some people in the world of Islam compromise with him and engage in wrestling, fighting and fighting with their Muslim brothers, scratching their faces and creating discord. The problem is this.

Eid ul-Fitr is the Eid of the Islamic Ummah and therefore, we should think of unity among the Islamic Ummah. I would like to offer words of advice to the countries and governments which forget what the Quran has requested from them. They have forgotten this. The ayahs which were recited here say, “And those who are with him are strong against unbelievers, but compassionate among each other.” [The Holy Quran, 48: 29] However, those individuals are strong against believers, compassionate to unbelievers. They are the opposite. Are they Muslims?

Whenever English policies which occurred in the past – and American policies today – infiltrated and entered into Islamic countries, such cases of fitna showed up. They create discord, hatred and hostility both among Islamic countries and inside a country. Notice what is happening in Libya. Why should two groups shed each other’s blood in a Muslim country while both groups come from the same country, the same soil and the same waters and while their interests are intertwined? Who is provoking them to do so?

Why should the mosques, bazaars, hospitals, primary schools and infrastructure in a country like Yemen be bombarded? Why? They are bombarded by whom? They are being bombarded by those who claim to advocate Islam. This is committed by a country which is Islam and whose people are Muslims. They work and endeavor on the basis of the whims and desires of the enemies of Islam and in the heart of the world of Islam. This is where our problem lies.

Today, the issue of Palestine is among the most important issues of the world of Islam, actually, it is the most important one. That is while they organize a summit in Bahrain, at the command of the US, on destroying the issue of Palestine. The rulers of Bahrain should know that they are pulling the rug from under their own feet. They should not be deceived by the Saudis. They, as well as the Saudis, are pulling the rug from under their own feet and this will end in their own disadvantage: “And so will they continue to spend, but in the end they will have only regrets and sighs.” [The Holy Quran, 8: 36]

They spend money and work hard, but it will end in their own disadvantage, despite what they had hoped for. The Quran says this in a decisive way. All these measures will end up in their own disadvantage, but they do not understand. Unfortunately, they do not understand. They can return because the path to return is open. They can repent because the path to repentance is open: “Except those who repent and make amends.” [The Holy Quran, 2: 160] They should make amends and make up for the corruption that they have caused.

Today, the world of Islam needs this. The problems of the world of Islam will be resolved if Muslims cooperate in harmony with one another. We should work to that end. The intellectuals of the world of Islam are responsible. The ulama of the world of Islam are responsible.

We in the Islamic Republic have accepted the price for defending Palestine. We have declared that we would defend Palestine. The world of arrogance stood against us then and delivered blows, but we showed resistance and we stood firm and we will continue to stand firm. We are certain that the final victory will belong to the Palestinian nation.

Unlike what the old Arab leaders said – they said, “We will throw the Jews into the sea” – we are not interested in throwing the Jews into the sea. We are only saying that the all-out endeavors of the Palestinian nation – political, military, moral and cultural endeavors – should continue until those who have usurped Palestine give in to the votes of the Palestinian nation. The opinion of all the people of Palestine – including Muslims, Christians, Palestinian Jews and those who have been exiled outside Palestine – should be sought through a poll and they should determine what kind of system should rule in Palestine. Then, everyone should abide by it. The fight should and will continue until that time.

By Allah’s favor and grace, the Palestinian nation will win in this peaceful and humanitarian cause which is accepted by all sensible and reasonable conventions in the world and the country of Palestine will be given back to the people of Palestine.  And by Allah’s favor, you youth will see that day.

Dear God, by the blessedness of Muhammad and his household, associate the immaculate soul of our magnanimous Imam, who familiarized us with this path and this goal, with his saints. Associate the martyrs of the path of Islamic dignity with the Holy Prophet.

Greetings be upon you and Allah’s mercy and blessings

New release from Ayat Allah ‘Ali Hussayni Khamina’i: “The Deal of the Century Will Never Happen”

First Sermon:

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds. “Praise be to Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth and made darkness and light. Yet those who reject faith hold others as equal with their Guardian-Lord.”[The Holy Quran, 6: 1]

And peace and greetings be upon our Master and Prophet, Ab-al-Qassem Al-Mustafa Muhammad, and upon his pure, immaculate and chosen household, especially the one remaining with Allah on earth, and greetings be upon the leaders of Muslims, those who support the oppressed and those who guide the faithful.

I advise you servants of God to fear God.

I would like to congratulate all you dear worshipers, all the people of Iran and the entire Islamic Ummah on the auspicious Eid ul-Fitr. In order to show the significance of this day, it is enough to say that in the qunut section of Fitr prayers – during which we say dhikr – we swear to God, saying, “By the blessedness of this day.” This reminds us of the greatness of this day.

Also, I deem it necessary to ask God to bestow His blessings and mercy on the dear martyrs of the 15th of Khordad [of 1342]: martyrs who were martyred in Tehran, in Qom, in Varamin, in Pishva and in other parts of the country. I hope that in the shade of the pure souls of these martyrs, Allah the Exalted makes the Iranian nation steadfast on this glorious path.

I wish to sincerely thank the Iranian nation for their endeavor on the last Friday of the auspicious month of Ramadhan and for their participation in the great public rally throughout the country. It was a great move. Some people may not know how influential this strong and solid presence can be in international policies and how it can change the opinion of the enemies of the Iranian nation as it can disrupt their calculations.

The auspicious month of Ramadhan was the month of divine blessings and divine mercy. It was the month of cleansing hearts and showing one’s faith. Throughout that month, our youth and our teenagers – at very tender ages – endured fasting on very hot days only for the sake of the divine command. This year, many of our teenagers had final exams, but they did not stop fasting. They endured both fasting on hot days and the difficulty of studying and taking exams. This is very valuable! These issues show the growth of religious faith among our youth and our adolescent generation.

The people passed good exams in terms of spirituality in this month. The presence of the people in mosques, hussainiyahs, imamzadehs and in various other religious sites throughout the country was a warm and enthusiastic presence. According to the reports that I received in those days, in Tehran, the people gathered together to listen to perceptive and insightful speeches, for reciting duas, for saying dawn prayers and for shedding early morning tears. These are really great blessings and spiritual provisions which originate from the pure hearts of teenagers and youth throughout the country. By Allah’s favor, these things will bless our future.

One of the blessings of this month is the increasing Quranic meetings that are held. Almost all over the country, Quran recitation meetings are held. This is a very precious hand valuable course of action.

In this month, the willpower of the masses of the people is strengthened in the way of God and it moves towards divine piety. This happens particularly in the Nights of Qadr. The great gatherings of the Nights of Qadr are truly instructive. Different individuals, people from various social backgrounds wearing different clothes and having different dispositions gather together under one roof and in one single place and they engage in supplication and shedding tears. These things should be appreciated.

The month of Ramadhan is the month of the flowing of divine mercy. This is a provision for our country and our people. I hope that God will help you preserve this provision until another month of Ramadan so that you can once more open this gate of divine mercy to yourselves.

 

 “In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Say: He, Allah, is One.

Allah is He on Whom all depends.

He begets not, nor is He begotten.

And none is like Him” [The Holy Quran, 112].

 

Second Sermon:

In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, and peace and greetings be upon our Master and Prophet, Ab-al-Qassem Al-Mustafa Muhammad, and upon his pure, immaculate and chosen household, especially the one remaining with Allah on earth

In particular, I wish to mention the infallible Imams: Ali ibn Abi Talib (greetings be upon him) – the Commander of the Faithful – Hassan, Hussein, the master of the youth of paradise, Ali ibn al-Hussein, the Master of Worshippers, Muhammad ibn Ali al-Baqir, the Holder of Prophetic Knowledge, Ja’far ibn Muhammad al- Sadiq, Musa ibn Ja’far al-Kadhim, Ali ibn Musa ar-Ridha, Muhammad ibn Ali al-Jawad, Ali ibn Muhammad al-Hadi, Hassan ibn Ali al-Zaki al-Askari and Hujjat al-Qaem al-Mahdi. Greetings be upon them all and I ask God for His forgiveness for me and you

In the first sermon, I discussed matters related to worshiping and paying attention to Allah the Exalted. In this sermon, I will discuss matters related to God’s servants.

Another side of this year’s month of Ramadhan – as is the case in all years – was helping other people which is thankfully expanding on a daily basis in the country. The people thankfully welcomed the idea of holding simple iftar meals which had been advised. The people catered iftar meals in mosques, in hussainiyahs, in the street, in the big squares of the city and even in the alleys and other people participated in them. Various individuals, even those who had limited financial means managed to participate in holding these public and collective iftar meals. Later on, there was a call to help and the people welcomed it. They helped to organize an iftar banquet. Billions of tomans were collected and expended for the iftar. These are great courses of action that are thankfully expanding among our people in the form of decent Islamic habits and traditions.

Also, the people’s Ramadhani assistance to the victims of the recent floods was impressive. I would like to use this opportunity to say to all our brothers and sisters throughout the country and in particular to our honorable officials that they should never consign the issue of the flood-stricken victims to oblivion. These issues are very important! We should follow up the matter in a serious way and the problems should be resolved with absolute seriousness.

Particularly in areas like Khuzestan where the weather is hot and where the heat in this season and in the following seasons will be unbearable, we should think of those brothers and sisters. One of the necessary and urgent tasks for both the masses of the people and officials is this issue.

As for international issues, these days, the issue of Palestine is one of the most important issues of the world of Islam. The treason of some orientations in Islamic countries has led to explicitly treasonous actions regarding the issue of Palestine. The summit that is going to be held in Bahrain is orchestrated by the Americans, but the rulers of Bahrain have prepared the ground for this with their weakness, their various inabilities, and their appallingly bad and anti-popular and anti-Islamic spirit. They have committed themselves to hold this summit.

The goal of the summit is to implement the wrong, treacherous and malicious plan of the US regarding Palestine, which has been referred to as “the deal of the century.” Of course, this will never happen and by Allah’s favor, the deal of the century will never be concluded.

I wish to thank those Muslim and Arab countries which have expressed their opposition to it and also the Palestinian groups which have opposed it. This is a grave act of treason against the world of Islam! I hope that the rulers of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia realize in what quagmire they are setting foot and what damages it will inflict on them in the future.

Dear God, by the blessedness of Muhammad and his household, familiarize the world of Islam with its interests and guide Muslim people, the Muslim Ummah, Muslim nations and Muslim rulers towards the path of growth and righteousness.

 “In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

To you, have We granted the Fount (of Abundance),

Therefore to your Lord turn in Prayer and Sacrifice,

For he who hates you, he will be cut off” [The Holy Quran, 108].

 

Greetings be upon you and Allah’s mercy and blessings
