Ayatollah Araki: Quds Day, day for honor of Islam
Ayatollah Araki hailed the wide participation of the people in International Al Quds Day rallies calling that a promise for victory of the oppressed people in Palestine.
Grand Ayatollah Mohsen Araki, Secretary General of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought, in an exclusive interview with Markazi Province state television, hailed international Al Quds Day as the day for honor of Islam when the world people will voice their solidarity with the oppressed people of Palestine, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
He praised the ceremony as a promise for victory of the Palestinians and noted,” This proves the true determination in support of Palestine and this support will continue till the liberation of Al Quds and all occupied Palestinian lands.”
Iranian scholar referred to the concurrence of Al Quds Day with the holy nights of Qadr when vigils are held across the Muslim world and said,” This is a proof that the people do not spare any effort in answering the call by the Supreme Leader to attend Al Quds rally and will never return from their path.”
Touching upon the nuclear talks between Iran and P 5+1 group, underway in Vienna, Ayatollah Araki added,” Another advantage of Al Quds Day 2015 was that it coincided with the final hours of Iran’s nuclear talks because these talks are in fact the confrontation between the Islamic Revolution of Iran and world arrogant powers.”
“Although these talks are in the form of dialogues, they are in fact a soft confrontation; one side of the talk can shake the bases of the other side.” Said the cleric and added,” Our nation, with its wide participation in Al Quds rallies, announced that we will be victorious.”
Ayatollah Araki referred to the firm determination of the Iranian nation in its objectives and stressed,” If the Americans and Europeans think that they can undermine the determination of Iranian nation through dragging the talks or pressing the nation with sanctions, then they will notice the Quds Day rallies and understand that they are following vain dreams since our people will persevere till the realization of their objectives.”
Secretary General of the World Forum also counted the messages of Quds Day 2015 saying the first of these messages was the determination of the people in defending Islam till the realization of all Islamic objectives.
The second message, according to the cleric, was perseverance of the people in practicing the objectives of the Islamic Revolution, following the guidelines of the Supreme Leader and also maintaining the objectives of the late founder of Islamic revolution.
In view of grand Ayatollah Araki, firm determination and perseverance of the people in their religion was the third message of this rally.
International Al Quds Day rally was the initiation of the late founder of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khomeini (RA) calling the last Friday in the holy month of Ramadan when people from across the globe hold rallies to announce their support for liberation of the Quds Mosque and the Palestinians.
