Ayatollah Arafi referred to the enemies’ oppressive sanctions against the Iranian nation and ‎‎“The sanctions will be defeated and Iran will proudly overcome all plots.” ‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers at ‎Qom’s ‎Qods ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi offered his congratulations on the birth anniversary of ‎Imam al-Ridha and said, “Imam al-Ridha was a symbol of religious rationality and with his ‎debates and protests, divine and pure teachings, he explained and promoted Islam.”‎

The head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran said, “We are proud that Iran is the centre of the ‎illumination of Imam al-Ridha and we must thank God for this great blessing and be able to ‎walk on the path of enlightenment of the Imam and reflect the light of divine knowledge to ‎the world through the Islamic Revolution and the great efforts of the Iranian people.”‎

In his second sermon, he referred to the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in the world, he ‎said, “The Coronavirus was a wake-up call for mankind to realize that despite all the ‎progress and power, the hand of the divine is higher. We must note that hardships and ‎calamities are a tool for healthy human beings to grow and develop and must be used.”‎

Referring to the American identity, Ayatollah Arafi stated, “Despite the apparent advances ‎and media propaganda of occupation, the incitement of war and mass murder, looting and ‎colonialism, unilateralism, the development of weapons and mass weapons, breaches of ‎promise, support for authoritarian powers around the world and support for terrorism, the ‎culture of pure materialism and disregard for all spiritual and moral matters, the destruction ‎of human culture and the environment and the disregard for the seekers of rights and the ‎oppressed of the world lie at the heart of the empty American culture.”‎

The member of the jurists of the Guardian Council continued, “The Americans have suffered ‎heavy losses in recent months, including the rain of rockets at the Ayn al-Asad Airbase [in ‎Iraq], the downing of their most sophisticated weapons and equipment by Iran, the ‎surrender against Iran at sea, their defeat in Yemen and their failure at the United Nations ‎Security Council. The Americans also tried and gave a bad exam and managed the ‎Coronavirus epidemic badly and showed their weak materialistic outlook. Today, racial ‎discrimination in the United States is like a storm and has engulfed the country.”‎

Referring to the November election in the United States, he said, “It doesn’t matter to us ‎which party is elected, because all of them are confronting Iran and the free nations and ‎some Iraqi leaders and officials must be careful not to fall into the trap of the United States.”‎

Referring to the enemies’ oppressive sanctions against the Iranian nation, Ayatollah Arafi ‎said, “The sanctions will be defeated and Iran will proudly overcome all plots, the Iranian ‎nation will endure hardships and demand from the government to solve the problems, but it ‎will not give up against its enemies.”‎
