Security take place under sovereignty and spirituality

30.4.2008

Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, Leader of the Islamic Revolution told a large group of Alims (Islamic scholars) in Shiraz central Iran Wednesday evening that the Iranian Alims bore heavy duties regarding the spiritual goals of the Islamic Republic.

Ayatollah Khamenei elaborated by saying that nations would achieve genuine security under the two factors of sovereignty and spirituality and that the Islamic Republic which represents a model of faith-inspired government must enjoy both.

"Today, the scope of influence of the Alims is no longer confined to small-scale scholarly circles rather they have hoisted the flag of spirituality at present, bringing many concerns and responsibilities for them in this regard," Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Ayatollah Khamenei noted the Alims that to meet their religious duties, they must primarily tend to their souls, adding that impious individuals would fail to guide others.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that it was also essential for Alims to acquire a good command of religious teachings and in this he commemorated the memory of great Shii philosopher Morteza Motahhari, saying that any young Iranian is expected to study his works.

The Islamic Revolution Leader urged the Alims to enhance their ability of conceptual reasoning, adding that excommunication, slander or infuriation provide no solution to counter the present-time campaigns to deviate nations through philosophical stuff rather they must be handled through religious reasoning and wisdom.

In the same regard, Ayatollah Khamenei urged the Alims to acquire state-of-the-art logic which among others requires one to develop insight into the mindset of any potential audience.

Ayatollah Khamenei also urged the Alims to acquire a precise knowledge about different domestic or foreign political affiliations, adding that an aware Alim must be able to specify what factors would mislead or guide human being.

The IR Leader said the policies exercised by the superpowers are precursor to corruption and bloodshed in the world.

"The Islamic Republic has hoisted flag against those policies, triggering the arrogance front to accost it hard," the IR Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei criticized those who assume due to their weakness that by distancing the principles, one could provide mindful solution to the problems, adding that it was recommendable for the nation to follow model of Islam to declare its goals bravely and march towards them sagaciously

 

Supreme Leader: Iranian nation resists all threats, sanctions

30.4.2008 - Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that the Iranian nation is determined to resist any threat or sanctions. Ayatollah Khamenei made the remark in an address to thousands of enthusiastic people in Shiraz who had gathered to welcome their aramount Leader on Wednesday. The Iranian nation will turn all threats imposed by the enemies to opportunities and bring development and pride for the country, said the Supreme Leader. Ayatollah Khamenei said that pious Iranian nation with reliance on their historical and cultural honors have made the Islamic Revolution victorious in Iran and attained their independence, national dignity, welfare and prosperity. Any nation should tolerate difficulties to attain its prime goals, and aspirations, underlined the Supreme Leader, citing eight years of sacred defence, fight against terrorism, resistance against threats as well as economic sanctions as parts of hardships tolerated by the Iranian nation on their right path. The Iranian nation from early stages of the Islamic Revolution faced economic sanctions and embargoes but with reliance on its invaluable power managed to turn all th threats into opportunities and attained independence and self-confidence. Therefore, "I advise you to keep in your mind that this great nation is never afraid of economic sanctions." The international capitalist system through extensive political propaganda did their best to force Iran to abandon its legitimate rights to benefit from nuclear energy but to no avail, said the Supreme Leader, adding that the pace of Iran's development frightened them to an extent that they exerted more pressure on Iran while ignoring the fact that the Iranian nation will turn all these threats into opportunities for its development. Foreign media try to bring take advantage of all factors even natural disasters, draught and price hikes which are rampant throughout the world in order to put more pressure on the Iranian nation and officials and therefore it is necessary that people exercise more vigilance, said Ayatollah Khamenei. The Supreme Leader said that the ongoing economic crisis which has crippled the world has been unprecedented in the past 60 years. This crisis has forced the UN to declare state of emergency for food shortages around the globe but foreign radios have focused on Iran to imply that the current price hikes and inflation in the country are the results of carelessness on the part of Iranian officials which of course is not true, he said. Thanks to Almighty God, existing problems in Iran are much less than those in other countries, underlined Ayatollah Khamenei. "Enemies try to magnify our problems and this will be resolved through a timely and precise economic plan," said the Supreme Leader. Current problems such as drought requires collective attention of people and officials on the issue, Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated.

In the Name of God, the Beneficient, the Merciful

The sad and sorrowful event at the 'Rahpouyan-e Vesal' centre which led to the martyrdom-like demise of a group of people spiritually devoted to God as well as some other casualties rendered me stricken with grief. I should offer relief to those who suffered losses and were bereaved due to this sad event by assuring them of God's reward to the long-suffering. "God the exalted will bestow His mercy and blessings upon them."

I pray to Allah the Exalted to provide the grief-stricken hearts with serenity and fortitude, and bestow his mercy and benevolence on our dear ones who died in the incident. I also pray to Allah the Exalted to aid the immediate recovery of those who were wounded in the accident. I should also demand the authorities to carry out their responsibilities in regard to the incident with the required precision and pace. Greetings be upon God's pious servants
