Cleric hails Leadership as a great blessing for Iranian nation


Senior Iranian cleric paid visit to southern Province of Khouzestan on the eve of Qadir Eid calling that the celebration for obedience of God Almighty.

Grand Ayatollah Mohsen Araki, Secretary General of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought participated in the ceremony for Qadir Eid (Eid marking the imamate of Imam Ali (AS) first Shia Imam and successor of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)) stressing jurisprudence as the most important principle for happiness of man, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).

He related on the meaning of jurisprudence saying, “Jurisprudence means that we deny any partner for God Almighty and it is God who appoints a person for ruling the people.”

Secretary General of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought added,” God is the first jurisprudent in the world and then appoints someone to lead the people and that person was Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) and then he appointed someone to guide the people.”

According to the cleric all Sunni leaders have admitted the point and contrary to all ignorance and denials to prevent spread of jurisprudence of Imam Ali (AS) and Ahlul Bayt (AS), there are several explicit narrations confirming that.

Ayatollah Araki called Qadir Eid as the day for continuation of blessings and a day when justice was founded in society.

He stressed one of the greatest blessings for the Iranian nation is the leadership and people’s obedience for his Excellency.

“If we have problems it is due to the point that we have not completed our obedience.” said Ayatollah Araki and expressed hope that people make their best to perfectly carry out their mission.
