Supreme Leader: Self-Reform Key to Success

Written by ebrahimi

Thursday, 12 June 2008

Sample ImageSupreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution emphasized today that self-reform and self-building is the basis of all successes in the real sense of the term. Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei in his audience to representatives of the people to the 8th Majlis on Tuesday emphasized that the two main duties of the parliament is legislation and supervision of the laws.

He called for maintaining and boosting of convergence and cooperation between the three branches of government, while reiterating that the representatives should properly interact with the public - that voted them to the parliament.

Ayatollah Khamenei said commitment to responsibilities with full consciousness of God the Omnipresent, was among the most important factors of popular religious rule that is based on heavenly-revealed guidelines and commandments.

He noted that the Islamic Republic's ideal is spiritual improvement, saying the formation of an Islamic society on the foundation of justice is the vital link that paves the way towards implementation of what the Messengers of God have emphasized, i.e. the spiritual ascension and improvement.

He described Islamic Iran as the voice of warning for the domineering system that only attempts to dehumanize people and trample justice.

The leader indicated that the only acceptable recourse to spread the life-giving message of the Islamic system is through proper propagation, which in fact, is moulding of the system on the basis of Islamic thoughts and justice, so as to serve as example for others.

He elaborated on differences between certain ruling systems and the so-called democracies, in contrast to Islamic-oriented administrations, saying: from the Islamic standpoint, leadership only belongs to God, and only that ruling system is acceptable which is set up in accordance with divinely-decreed rules.

The legitimate Islamic system, Ayatollah Khamenei made it clear, is the one based on the holy book and the instructions and guidelines of Prophet Mohammad (blessings of God upon him and his progeny).

Form this point of view, he added, the people's representatives in the Majlis are obliged and duty-bound in the presence of God the Omnipresent, to pass laws that are mandatory and binding.

Prior to the Supreme Leader's remarks, new Majlis Speaker, Dr. Ali Larijani, briefed the Leader on the capabilities of the new Majlis in handling the country's affairs.


Elected lawmakers of the eighth Iranian parliament


slamic Revolution Leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khmenei in a speech Tuesday to the newly-elected lawmakers of the eighth Iranian parliament considered the phenomenon of religious democracy as being protected by some Divine custodianship.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the fundamental task of lawmakers shall be to feel responsibile towards God, adding that provided the directors of the System undertake the assignment, different minds and tastes would converge and rational intentions would get united in resolving the existing challenges in a composed atmosphere.

Ayatollah Khamenei said the ultimate goal of the Islamic Republic of Iran was to help human being to gain perfect spirituality, adding that the establishment of Islamic Community which is run by a fair system is just a vehicle to materialize the ultimate goals of the Divine Messengers, the mankind's spiritual perfection.

The Islamic Revolution Leader said God would protect the lawmakers if they undertake their God-assigned duties firmly and bravely, adding that such duties would be of higher importance once an individual sits the sensitive lawmaking position.

Ayatollah Khamenei said laws and regulations would act as software for any national movement and the significance would double if one considered the situation of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Iranian nation which had opened a new track before the humanity.

Ayatollah Khamenei called the Islamic Republic an outcry in the face of blind move of hegemonic systems in trampling on humanity and justice, adding that the savior call would gain ground only through precise propagation that is the establishment of a just system based on Islamic thoughts especially in light of the fact that the revolutionary words of Imam Khomeini are genuinely attractive.

Ayatollah Khamenei said religious democracy and its representations including the lawmaking job are deeply rooted in the Islamic Republic. He elaborated the Islamic platform sits on the view that any custodianship over human being was a monopoly of God while God has allowed human being to trust the custodianship to some individuals through some conduit which has been enshrined in the IRI Constitution as elections.

"This (election) is the authentic, profound and trusted basis of religious democracy," the IR Leader added.

Ayatollah Khamenei then said that the Islamic views differ from the current political systems in the world in that it considers the custodianship over people as monopoly of God and that people's rule over other people was only acceptable if it followed certain procedures stipulated in Koran and the conduct of the Allah's Messenger Hazrat Muhammad and his true successors.

"By this viewpoint, public delegation would turn into a Divine-rooted custodianship and the same process would make the parliamentary ratifications religiously compulsory," Ayatollah Khamenei added.

Pointing to his statement on the occasion of inauguration of the 8th Majlis, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "The parliament's ratifications should be comprehensive, durable, clear, expertly and focused on people's problems. They should be affordable to be implemented in different conditions and assure people about their future decisions.

The IR Leader advised the three branches of government to interact to solve their differences, adding, "If differences rise over scope of authority, it can be solved through interaction, referring to the Constitution and using standpoints of elites."

Ayatollah Khamenei warned the representatives to avoid being influenced by unpopular power folds inside the society and preserve their independence in decision-making.

The IR Leader termed the Constitutional supervision of the parliament as very important, adding, "The representatives should be vigilant to keep the supervision from being transformed into conflict with other branches of power."

He expressed his deep and sincere thanks to the former speaker of Majlis, Gholam-Ali Haddad Adel for his efforts to block potential differences between Majlis and other branches of government.

Ayatollah Khamenei also urged the lawmakers not to allow formation of new aristocratic classes. "You should be pious and remain pious and resist against complex seditions."

The IR Leader termed self-purification as the basis of all successes and advised the elected representatives to seek God's help and appeal to Koran and appreciate their short 4-year term.

Ayatollah Khamenei termed the presence of the occupiers specially the American forces in Iraq and their interference in any Iraqi affair as the main obstacle to unity in the country.

"Occupiers who are interfering in the Iraqi affairs with their military and security power without any mandate are the biggest problem of the country," IR Leader added.

Ayatollah Khamenei likened the ongoing US divisive efforts in Iraq to those of Britain once the country gained independence with the difference that the Americans were blocking the unity of Iraqis more brazenly.

The IR Leader urged all influential Iraqi bodies to find a way to get the country out of the problem, adding that the Iraqi bodies which had come to power with true vote of the nation should determine their own fate.

''A foreign agent which wants to dominate the Iraqi affairs is the most important obstacle against the progress and prosperity of the Iraqi nation," he added.

The Iraqi Prime Minister expressed satisfaction that he had the opportunity to meet the Ayatollah Khamenei once again.

Maliki thanked IRI's support to the Iraqi nation and said, "Iraq seeks to have best of relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran."

He termed Muslims' anti-arrogance and anti-Zionism acts as signs of expansion of the late Imam's teachings and noted "Today even the Iranian nation's slogan over the nuclear energy has turned into a public demand in the Arab and Islamic countries. This shows that the Muslim nation consider Iranian nations' goals with respect."

"The enemies of the Islamic Revolution pretended that religion is against progress and the Westernization is the factor of progress but the great Imam underlined and showed that the spirit of the Revolution is the spirit of progress and innovation."

He termed the Iranian nation's relying on its capabilities and moving towards creativity and independence-seeking as the main reasons behind enmity of the arrogant powers.

"The arrogant power opposed to the nuclear rights of the Iranian nation because the Iranian nation could gain nuclear technology through their knowledge, innovation and without depending on the cruel powers."

Ayatollah Khamenei added that if using this energy would lead to dependence of a nation on these bullying powers, they would show no disagreement with the issue.

"Today we can see that these big powers have signed nuclear contracts with some countries which had less progress in relation to the Iranian nation."

Ayatollah Khamenei added that from the standpoint of Islam and wisdom the Iranian and officials oppose to nuclear weapons but it would do its best to follow its path towards using peaceful nuclear energy.

Another point of Imam Khomeini's last will was marking the arrogant powers' psychological war for disappointing nations and added "When these powers were unable to stand against a nation they appeal to psychological war. For the reason they has misused this method against the Iranian nation but they failed."

Addressing the active youth in seminaries and universities, Ayatollah Khamenei said "Dear youth, you have achieve half of your goals and should achieve another half of the remained goals through your fixed will."

Pointing to Imam Khomeini's warns against organized plots for making the youth away from their religious motivations, the IR Leader said, "The enemy tries to leads the youth astray through drugs and sensual affairs to block progress of the Iranian nation. The nation and officials should be vigilant against these plots and make serious efforts in this regard."

IR Leader pointed to resistance against the bullying powers as the main point of the Imam's last will and said, "Surrendering to the oppressive powers would increase their rudeness and a nation who wants to save itself from oppressive powers and America it should resist firmly against them."

Pointing to the illogical behaviors of the American rulers and added that these moved indicates the defeats of the American ruling party in different parts of the world specially Iraq and Afghanistan.

"Emphasis on following the Imam Khomeini's way is a blessed phenomena but a distinguished point of Imam's views was resisting against bullying powers. The elites and political parties of the country should maintain their strength against these powers."

Pointing to the America and Zionists' political and psychological war against the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined that America and Zionists' allegations over violation of human rights in Iran had no base moreover among the world nations and they would never believe these claims.
