Tehran:Thousands of believers performed Eid-al-fitr prayer under the ledership of Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in the mosque of Imam Khomeini (RA) at Tehran capital of Islamic republic of Iran.
Addressing thousands of believers, His Eminence said: This year, the month of Ramadan was truly a holy month for the Iranian people. We could see first-hand that people represented signs of acceptance and closeness to Allah in their behavior:The communities involved in organizing ceremonies and providing services to attendees exhibited this phenomenal attitude. There was a genuine spiritual atmosphere during the month of Ramadan overall.
Leader firstly hailed the religious and cultural activities held during Ramadan and urged all to save the spiritual earnings of the holy month as treasures.
Noting the domestic issues, Ayatollah Khamenei commended the nation on massive turnout on presidential election as well as Quds rallies. He highlighted that the massive turnout in Quds Day rallies on last Friday of Ramadan, which took place on a day with an extremely high temperature, was a historic occasion. He asked honorable Iranian nation to be proud of their achievements; “prior to Ramadan, you made an unprecedented presence in the presidential elections and later you proved the country’s greatness to the world by a massive turnout at Quds Day march,” he told the nation.
“IRGC’s powerful attack against ISIL forces in Syria was also a notable measure worth admiration,” he continued.
He then expressed hope for accelerating the process of forming the new government and resuming the activities. Ayatollah Khamenei called on the new Iranian government to seriously purse major issues like domestic production and employment.
Leader of Islamic Revolution, clarified that ‘fire-at-will’, a term he introduced at a recent speech, meant “spontaneous and neat cultural work and not lawlessness or overstatement.”
Touching upon the regional issues, the Leader urged the Islamic world to explicitly support Yemeni people; “Revolutionary forces need to be more careful about order in the country otherwise enemies will take advantage of chaos to their benefit.”
Everyone should openly support people of Yemen, Bahrain and Kashmir
The Supreme Leader advised Muslim nations to take a clear stance on issues in the Muslim world, even if it causes dissatisfaction of arrogant individuals. He further added: The Islamic Nations are covered in wounds: Conflicts in Yemen, Bahrain, problems in all Islamic countries, are major wounds on the body of Islam. The World of Islam should explicitly support the people of Yemen, and express their disdain against the oppressors who’ve attacked the people in such horrible ways during the month of Ramadan.
Highlighting the significance of openly supporting oppressed nations, Ayatollah Khamenei asserted: The same is true for the people of Bahrain and Kashmir: Our people can back this great movement within the World of Islam. Just as we explicitly express our position against enemies and adversaries, the world of Islam–especially the elites in it–should follow this path and take a position towards seeking happiness from God, absolutely, even if it leads to dissatisfaction of the arrogant front
Leader of Iran warned against numerous cultural influences by enemies and urged the Islamic community to slam oppressors who invade innocent people, including Yemenis, Bahrainians and Kashmiris, in the fasting month of Ramadan. He invited the Islamic world, its intellectuals in particular, to announce their stance in a crystal-clear way like Iran does.
