Press Shia Agency – “True believers are those who solely rely on God Almighty, therefore they never put their faith in anything else including the US or other imperialist powers of the world,” Grand Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi said.

Press Shia – Speaking at a meeting held on Thursday, November 17, in Qom’s Amir al-Momenin Seminary, Grand Ayatollah Naser Makarem-Shirazi, a senior Shi’ah cleric, addressed a group of female scholars from Iran’s Kordestan province stating, “The Holy Quran has many spectacular features, one of which is that, it’s not obligatory for mankind to act according to all Quranic verses in order to reach felicity in life and hereafter, should they only act on one verse of the Quran, they would definitely reach felicity and happiness.”


His Eminence added, “True believers are those who solely rely on God’s grace and never put their faith and trust in anything else including the imperialist world powers.”


“Another characteristic of the true believers in God is that they perform their religious duties and prayers sincerely with pure intentions to serve God. They donate their wealth and property to charity, It must be noted that charity does not only mean giving away your wealth or property, it could even be carried out in the form of saving somebody’s face in public or giving useful advice to those who need it.”

Highlighting the fact that Quran is a comprehensive book for all times, Ayatollah Makarem-Shirazi advised the Iranian youth who live in the province of Kordestan, “The people of Kordestan, especially the youth, must be aware of the evil Takfiri thoughts in the region and try to protect themselves against the infiltration of such corrupt ideas.”
