Press Shia Agency – Ayatollah Saidi said that the crimes that are being committed today by Saudi Arabia and the misguided Wahhabi sect against Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq and Syria are all due to their hatred toward the Ahlul-Bayt and pure Muhammadan Islam of which the Islamic Republic of Iran is the flagbearer of today.
Press Shia Agency – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in Qom’s Qods Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Saidi referred to the malice of the enemies against Muslims throughout history, he continued, “The destruction and daring has continued and has reached our time and examples of it include the destruction of the Holy Askariayn Shrine, the disrespect toward the Holy Shrine of Lady Zaynab and the incident [where a Takfiri terrorist] chewed on the liver of one of the defenders of the holy shrines and this shows that these crimes and grudges are constant throughout history.”
The custodian of the Holy Shrine of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah said that the crimes that are being committed today by Saudi Arabia and the misguided Wahhabi sect against Yemen, Bahrain, Iraq and Syria are all due to their hatred toward the Ahlul-Bayt and pure Muhammadan Islam of which the Islamic Republic of Iran is the flagbearer of today.
He said, “For this reason, every country which has even a slight relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran, even if they are considered an ally with them, they are opposed to it. Pure Islam has a special role in the Islamic awakening, and for this reason, the enemies are grieving.”
In other remarks, Ayatollah Saidi explained that in addition to sectarian enemies, we have another professional enemy on the world stage, noting, “We saw during the US presidential elections of 2013 that one of the candidates explicitly stated that the destruction of the foundations of the family and weakening the health of the people through the increase in the use of tobacco products is one of the methods in which they seek to hurt Iran.”
He added that the enemies planned and plotted to destroy the foundations of the family and one of these plots includes the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which targeted important pillars, including the family, stating, “Through the neglect of this disgraceful document by some of the authorities this disgraceful document entered the country but with the vigilance of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Khamenei], the silent conspiracy to implement this document was revealed.”
His Eminence added, “Every year Iranians spend millions of dollars on cigarettes and the consumption of this dangerous substance among boys and girls is rising. Isn’t it desirable for officials and people to think and find a solution to these problems, instead of the abundant billboards which polarize society.”
AyatollahArafi commemorated the Day of Chastity and Veil, stated, “The confiscation of the veil was one of the Western plots against Muslims, Reza Khan Pahlavi founded this ugly tradition in Iran, which still affects the system and the people and the system today. All devices, authorities and the media should work so that the people return to chastity and the veil and protect this Islamic value.”
Referring to government contracts with foreign companies, including Total, he said, “When these contracts are accepted and signed and the news of them reaches the media, various judgements are made about it, for example, when a contract that was recently signed with the [French] company, Total, some considered it a turning point during the cruel US-Western imposed sanctions against Iran, and some also announced this agreement as a new conspiracy and threat to the Islamic Republic.”
He added, “Last week, we witnessed was an important change in the region in regard to the war against Daesh in Iraq. Most of Mosul has been liberated, which indicates the destruction of this evil organization and the decay of Daesh in the region, wherein the role of the religious authorities, the Popular Mobilization Forces and the Iraqi government are not hidden for anyone.”
