Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani stated that the House of Saud is the source of a most of the corruption and sedition in the Islamic world and stressed that the Saudi attack on Yemen, which has killed innocent people there and revealed the true nature of the evil Saudi rulers.
Speaking at his first jurisprudence class of the new academic term, Ayatollah Hoseyn Nouri-Hamadani stated the duty of religious scholars is to deal with deviations and innovations in religion and added that most Muslim countries only carry the name of Islam.
“They build mosques, but there is no guidance in them,” he said.
His Eminence criticized Saudi rulers’ allegiance and loyalty to the arrogant superpowers and to Israel, and said that as a result of their misinterpretations and deviant thinking, Saudi rulers are the source of corruption and sedition in the Muslim world and rule with tyranny.
The renowned source of emulation also referred to the 1987 incident in Makkah where pilgrims to the House of God were massacred by Saudi Arabian security forces during the Hajj period and honoured the martyrs of this incident.
Referring to Imam Ruhollah Khomeini’s historical message on this occasion, Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani noted several points and stressed on the importance of the Hajj pilgrimage, saying that the Hajj is a divine duty which has political, social and cultural dimensions.
He added that the late Imam emphasized that the political dimension of Hajj is the most neglected of all dimensions.
His Eminence explained that Hajj is a symbol of unity and solidarity of the Islamic ummah and said that Muslims should unite to solve the problems they face and thwart the enemies’ plots.
Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani added that the House of Saud have attacked Yemen and have killed innocent men, women and children over the past five months.
He added that this brutal bombardment shows their true and evil nature and has proved that they have deviated far from Islamic religious teachings.
He added that all Muslims should stand with the people of Yemen as our religion orders us to help any oppressed people against the enemies.
“We condemn the attack on Yemen and stand with the oppressed people of this country,” he said.
The professor in the Islamic Seminary of Qom explained that the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, has stressed that there is no difference between the last summers’ Israel attack on the Gaza Strip and Saudi Arabia’s current bombardment of Yemen.
“Just as we supported the people of Gaza, we support the Yemeni people,” he added.
He also condemned the recent Israeli aggression on Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque, saying: “We condemn this incident and are surprised at the silence of the Muslim world and Islamic scholars.”
Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani said we are surprised that some Muslim scholars and rulers of Muslim countries are silent in the face of this brutal crime. “al-Aqsa Mosque belongs to all Muslims and we should be united and harmonious in order to save it from the clutches of the Zionists,” he said.
