Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei received thousands of people Sunday on the occasion of the 18th of Dhu’l-Hijjah (December 6) which marks Eid Ghadir Khumm (the day in which the Noblest Messenger of Allah Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) announced Imam Ali (AS) as his successor) and said enjoying the divine criterion, the Ghadir issue marks the true path of the Islamic Ummah.
Imam Khamenei congratulated the Iranian nation and all Muslims around the world on the occasion of Eid Ghadir Khumm and said the Ghadir event is deeper than other Islamic feasts in which the permanent duty of Muslims over guidance and government was determined according to divine criteria, so it was named as the greatest Islamic feast.
Pointing to Quranic verses over completion of Islam in the Ghadir event, Leader of the Islamic Revolution said in fact the leader of the faithful (Imam Ali) was appointed by God and the Noblest Messenger of Allah Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH) completed his prophesy by announcing the issue.
Referring to some verses of Quran and other Islamic valid documents, Imam Khamenei said Hazrate Ali Ibn Abi-Taleb was the most perfect man in knowledge, piety, sacrifice, struggle and other virtues. He invited all Muslims to study and think deeply about these truths.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution underlined on Islamic unity and said we do not expect an Islamic sect accepts beliefs of another sect but our logical call on Muslims is that they should study and think deeply about the truths were released by great Alims including Sayyed Sharaf-o-Din and Amini.
Imam Khamenei named the leader of the faithful (Imam Ali) as an example for the youth and advised all people to take examples from Imam Ali (AS) for their different passages of life.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution said that Shiism has originated from divine inspiration and Quranic values.
Imam Khamenei rejected some accusations against Shiism that it is a forged and political belief and said that the Ghadir event is a definite issue in the Islamic history which foils all these accusations and elucidates spirit and origin of Shiism.
Leader of the Islamic Revolution said Zionists, Americans and other imperialist powers are extremely fearful of Muslim nations’ awakening and Iranian nation’s serving as a model for others. “That’s why they (westerners) have been using ample ploys and tricks over the past thirty years to marginalize the nation and the country but to no avail. Under God’s grace, neither will they be able to do so in the future.”
Imam Khamenei slammed the Zionists and enemies’ lies over Iran’s nuclear issue and said,” The enemies of the nation with telling lie and creating trick try to mislead world’s public opinions, but when the realities became clear, they would hit by disgrace”.
Imam Khamenei warned the leaders of America, England and other European countries to avoid telling lie, adding,” “As we have announced times and again, Iranian nation seek nuclear energy for scientific purposes, believing that tomorrow, when the world’s economic wheels turn on nuclear power, it will be too late for them, if they fail to acquire the knowledge, technology and might today.”
“The Iranian nation tries to earn the nuclear knowledge to fulfill the needs of the next 20 or 30 years generation, but the West by creating turmoil, accusation and telling lie try to prevent the IRI national success,” Imam Khamenei added.
“Westerns raise hues and cry, accusations and lies to prevent materialization of the objective,” the IR Leader said. He cautioned the audience against imperialist powers’ political and propaganda conspiracies to deprive Iranian nation from their absolute nuclear right.
“Whenever the world arrogant powers when fail in using threats, military attacks and sanctions against a nation, they seek to sow discord among them, the IR Leader added.
Imam Khamenei termed Iranian nation as patience, brave and resistant and said,” The leaders of arrogant powers in their propaganda talk about their patience, but they know they have no patience before the Iranian nation. They (arrogant powers) have arranged all their political, economical and military plots to defeat the nation.”
The Leader of Ummah highlighted patience and resistance of the Iranian nation as the grounds for progress in the country, reiterating,” The Iranian patient nation will foil the aliens hue and cry and continues the way of the founder of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini with vigilance and will conquer peaks of glory.”
