Imam Khamenei: Normalizing Relations with ‘Israel’ Is Blatant Violation of the Word of Quran
By Staff, Khameni.ir
Masters, reciters and memorizers of Quran who participated in the 36th International Holy Quran competitions, had a meeting with the Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei.
The reciters met with Imam Khamenei on April 15, 2019, in a gathering of bonding with the Holy Quran held at the Husseiniyah of Imam Khomeini (r.a.).
Imam Khamenei stressed during the meeting that the Quran, Islam’s Holy Book, is the book that leads mankind to worldly and heavenly bliss.
“The Quran is the book of prosperity and bliss in this world and the hereafter, provided that we act based on its principles. The Quran says, “Stern to the disbelievers;” [Quran; 48:29]. Some Muslims forget that, like those Muslim countries who compromise with the US and the Zionists, to shed the blood of Palestinians and violate their rights. They abandoned being “stern to the disbelievers” [Quran; 48:29] and they became servants of the disbelievers. Today, the officials of many Muslim states represent examples of that,” Imam Khamenei said.
Imam Khamenei criticized Muslim states that engage in wars against their Muslim brethren.
He further stressed that another group has forgotten the principle of “compassionate among themselves” [Quran; 48:29]. They reject and excommunicate [takfir] the believers in Allah, the Quran, and the Ka’ba. When “compassionate among themselves” is abandoned, internal wars may arise. You see the current situation in Yemen and Syria; Yemen has been bombarded for 4 years now. Those who bombard Yemen are Muslims in appearance, but they do not show mercy to Muslims.
His Eminence praised those who gave their lives for the sake of Allah as role models for selfless volunteering and maintained: The Martyrs have taught us many lessons. The initiative taken for providing relief for the victims of the recent floods in Iran is what the martyrs have taught us. The great movement of the people from different regions towards the flooded areas is an extraordinary phenomenon. The people and youth go there and along with the young local people contribute to the relief operation using their physical strength, facilities, and money.
