Ayatollah Sa’idi emphasized that officials, artists and institutions must build bulwarks on ‎the cultural front because the enemies are stubbornly targeting the beliefs and culture ‎of society.‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers ‎at ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Qom’s Qods Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Sa’idi referred to the ‎opposition of the arrogant powers to Islam and said, “The polytheists have trouble with ‎the principle of Islam and Islamic governments and seek to overthrow them. As long as ‎the polytheists continue their hostile stance, we have no choice but to resist and ‎confront them and negotiations and agreements‏ ‏such as the ‘2030 Agenda for ‎Sustainable Development’ lead to their domination over us.” ‎

The custodian of the Holy Shrine of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah‎ referred to the various ‎religious occasions of the past week and ‎added, “These occasions, as well as the birth ‎anniversary of Imam Musa al-Kadhim and Eid al-Ghadir, are good opportunities to take ‎the Ahl al-Bayt as role models in order to prove our Shi’ism and affection. Ghadir is ‎important and must remain because it has lessons and examples for us, such as ‎obedience to wilayah (guardianship).” ‎

Ayatollah Sa’idi said, “Ghadir teaches us that if Muslims don’t abide by their covenants, ‎there are people who will make the situation more difficult for the Islamic ummah. Due ‎to the blessings of the Islamic system in Iran, the Commander of the Faithful [Imam ‎Ali] is honoured and we must pay attention to its messages‏ ‏because opposition to ‎Ghadir means opposition to God, the Prophet, the Ahl al-Bayt and, in the era of the ‎occultation of Imam al-Mahdi, it means opposition to Wilayat al-Faqih (Guardianship of ‎Jurisprudent). We are determined to remain steadfast in our beliefs to the wilayah of ‎the Prophet.”‎

The representative of the Supreme Leader in ‎Qom continued, “When the enemies ‎couldn’t defeat us on the military and economic fronts and witnessed our advancement ‎and the flourishing of our talents, they aimed their attacks at the culture of our society ‎and sought to create doubts in the minds of the people regarding issues such as ‎chastity and the hijab and want to incite shallow passions and turn the youth, who are ‎the capital of the system, toward worthless passions.”‎

Ayatollah Sa’idi stressed that the main front of the enemies’ activities is regarding ‎cultural issues and said, “Officials of the system, artists and institutions must create ‎bulwarks on the cultural front because the enemies are stubbornly targeting the beliefs ‎and culture of the society. The haters of the Islamic Revolution must realize that the ‎warriors on the cultural front, the Basijis and the Iranian people are crippling and ‎defeating the enemies in this arena.” ‎
