During his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers in Qom, Ayatollah Ali-Reza Arafi referred to the solemn month of Muharram, which starts at the end of this week, saying that every year we must add to the grandeur of this lofty occasion.

“Due to the grace of God, the glorious flag of Ashura is raised higher every year in every part of the world thanks to the victory of Islamic Revolution,” he added.

The principal of al-Mustafa International University called preachers and eulogists to speak the truth and avoid misconceptions and falsehood during their lectures during Muharram, especially those deviated concepts that have been influenced by “Mi6 Shi’ites.”

Ayatollah Arafi added that Ashura means revolution and resistance against the enemies of Islam and stressed upon the importance of the slogan of “Hayhat minna dhillah” – a saying from Imam Husayn which means “disgrace is far away from us or “no to humiliation.”

“Currently the voices of the oppressed nations of the world are becoming louder in opposition to the enemies and the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon, Syria and other regions is progressing on the battlefield,” he said.

The Iranian scholar referred to the September 24 stampede in Mina, saying that this this “unforgettable” tragedy seems like a deliberate act, and called for a fact-finding mission and for the Iranian government as well as and other governments and the international community to “stand firm” and work together and investigate what occurred in Mina.

Ayatollah Arafi added that the authorities must seriously pursue the Mina issue and learning from the epic of Ashura, they must not show any weakness in their investigation over the scandalous and criminal actions committed by the House of Saud against the innocent Hajj pilgrims.

“This isn’t the only act that the Saudi’s have committed, the treachery of the House of Saud and their promotion of the Wahhabi and Takfiri ideology and their crimes in Muslim countries are also unforgettable actions, but pursuing the Mina case is sufficient [to bring the House of Saud to justice],” he said.

Referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Qom’s Friday prayers’ leader said that Iran’s parliament has the right to analyze and comment on the agreement. “Also, the revolutionary people who are active in this field should be respected and their comments heard. However, any action taken must be with the support of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei] and the negotiating team,” he said.

He stressed that the weak points of the JCPOA must be recognized and removed and Iran’s ability to defend itself, support the Islamic Resistance and confront the global arrogance, especially the United States, must be preserved and these issues must not be forfeited in any final agreement.

Ayatollah Arafi stated that Iranians must not think that negotiating with the US will solve the problems their country faces because they will not allow Muslim nations to have scientific growth or political independence. “The US’ black record has been proven throughout history,” the scholar said.

His Eminence added Iran should not be trapped by their plots, but must recognize the depth of these issues. “We must not think that we can reconcile with the wolves of the world. These bloodthirsty wolves will only be satisfied when the Iranian nation has given up its ideals. Thus, we must stand firmly against foreigners and realize that only the discourse of the Islamic Revolution can save us,” he said.
