Grand Ayatollah Hoseyn Nouri-Hamadani has met with the head of the Organization for Mobilization of the Oppressed (Basij), Brigadier-General Mohammad-Reza Naqdi. Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani discussed the distinctions of the Islamic Revolution.
Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani told Brigadier-General Naqdi that all people should thank and support the Basji due to their services to the Islamic Revolution and to the oppressed and should know that their activities are full of blessings and sincerity. One of our most important duties is to protect the Islamic Revolution so it can achieve its goals of the resistance against the opposition and the problems. The Basij is active in these fields, reported Rasa News.
The Islamic Revolution has many distinctions over all other revolutions in the world and the revered source of emulation stated that the greatest distinction of the Islamic Revolution include that it was based on Islamic law and envisioned the position of the guardian-jurisprudent in its constitution. “We must realize that the position of the guardian-jurisprudent is the same position as the position of prophethood in relation to governance and guardianship of the people and Muslims,” His Eminence stated.
Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani stated that another distinction of the Islamic Revolution was that it supports the oppressed and weak throughout the world: “Today all of the weak and disadvantaged of the world look toward Islamic Iran with hope. The arm of Iran [which supports them] is the Basij.”
He added that in his book, “Wilayat al-Faqih,” Imam Khomeini wrote that according to credible narrations, God granted the guardianship over the people of the world to the prophets and after them, to the infallible imams. In the period of the greater occultation [of Imam al-Mahdi], guardianship is in the hands of the scholars. The greatest of these scholars in any given time is the guardian-jurist (wali al-faqih).
In addition, Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani explained that the Takfiri terrorist group ISIL is a tool of the arrogant powers of the world and another one of the distinctions of the Islamic Revolution is its mobilization against the arrogant powers: “With their creation and protection of terrorist groups such as ISIL, the arrogant powers of the world seek to annihilate this distinction of the Islamic Revolution and seek to create divisions among Muslims so that Israel can have opportunities to rebuild.”
At the end of his speech, His Eminence stated that the Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei is a skilled, brave and thoughtful individual: “Ayatollah Khamenei has guided this system until today in the best method possible. The Basij, who have played a role in insuring the Islamic Revolution, must strive by following the Supreme Leader’s guidance in [the fields of] resistance and advancing the revolution.”
