Press Shia – In a meeting with the chairman and a group of directors of the National Standards ‎Organization of Iran, Grand Ayatollah Mohammad-Ali Alavi-Gorgani said that God Almighty ‎has established all the works of the world as a means of entertainment for mankind and ‎said, “We read in the Quran the material items and the life of the world may lead us to ‎prosperity in the hereafter.”‎


The revered source of emulation added, “This is a lesson for all officials – that the worldly ‎life of those who are believers will be good. Your have very heavy responsibilities in order ‎that no actions and betrayal are taken against the rights of the people.”‎


He said, “Production, food and halal and haram issues are in your hands and unless it’s done ‎carefully, unfortunately, it leads to corruption in the country or if our goods aren’t ‎manufactured with quality, the people are likely to purchase other goods.”‎


Referring to the fact that people’s lives and livelihoods today are fraught with hardship, ‎Ayatollah Alavi-Gorgani stated, “This difficulties of life among the people causes corruption in ‎society.
