The Islamic Revelution Leader, Sayed Ali Khamenei in the birthday anniversary of Hazrat Imam Ali (AS) on Tuseday described the Commander of the Faithfull as the shinig star in the sky of justice and humanity, calling him the prominent feature revered by the world's freemen.
Stressing on Jihad as the main lesson that Imam Ali desired to teach, the Iranian Leader reiterated, " Today the most important duty of the Islamic Ummah is Jihad in the path of Allah and efforts to revive the Muslim's self-steem and their moral, human iterian and scientific sublimity."
According to IRIB, Khamenei , addressing the huge public gathering of different people strata and Shiite and Sunni scholars , then elaborated on the meaning of Jihad and said," Jihad is not limited to the war period, furthermore, it covers every step taken by Muslims to promote the Islamic Ummah's scientific and religious status as well as empowering unity among Muslims and confrontation to the inner temptations."
Ayatollah Khamenei further stated that the current miserable status of the Islamic Ummah is the outcome of ignoring Jihad so that in a auspicious day like 13th of Rajab (the birthday of Imam Ali) the body of Islamic Ummah is wrapped in blood.
Referring to the ongoing Israeli atrocities in Lebanon and Palestine and daily killings of innocent children in these countries as the prime problem facing Muslims, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined that this kind of tragedies may one day happen to all Islamic countries, therefore the Islamic Ummah must reserve its unity because the world's powers never observe their interests.
The Islamic Revelution Leader also criticized America and Britain's emboldening stand regarding the Zionist regime's crimes and UN's inability adding that, "The next problem in the current circumstances is division among the Islamic states especially indeference of some Arab states which is wrong and harmful."
"Today, supporting Hizbullah is obligatory for all Muslims and the Islamic states which remained silent for reservations towards America should realize that America never considers them," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Ayatollah Khamenei reaffirmed the Islamic Republic of Iran's firm stand towards the problems of world of Islam and said that America, in collaboration with the Zionist regime and some European countries such as Britain, seeks to eradicate Islam from the region because Islam stands up to their intrests."
Khamenei also referred to the Hizbullah's resistance as an example of Islamic dignity and said," The Zionist regime's army, once renowned as an invencible army and having managed to defeat three Arab armies whithin 6 days has yet to win the battle against Hizbullah after nearly a month even if exhusting all posibilities and American military assistence."
