“Patience and insight are two important factors for sustaining success and victories of a nation, and in each area that there is patience and insight, we have seen the success of Islam and failure of hegemony” Ayatollah Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi said, pointing to the sentence “And this flag, would not be carried except by the people of insight and patience" from Imam Ali (A.S.).
Member of the Supreme Council of Khorasan Seminary, introduced the man subjected to God’s trial permanently, and stating that all the Saints of God, had passed God’s trials and morbidities, expressed, “Each of God’s Prophets, passed hard divine trials, and due to passing the trials proudly, they have reached high spiritual levels.”
He, pointing out that the Prophet (S.A.W) during his holy life, suffered from an extent of calamities that he said in a saying "No prophet in the world suffered such excruciations as me", and said “Being affected by divine blights and trials is the philosophy of man’s creation, and if the human forgets their interests, and takes steps only for religion and Quran and divine values, they have achieved a position that is worthy of praise.”
He pointed to the problems and difficulties that Imam Ali (A.S.) and Hazrat Fatima (S.A.) suffered to keep the pure Islam and asserted, “All the Infallible Imams (A.S.), took steps in order to protect Islam and Wilayat, and they tolerated a lot in this way.”
Grand Custodian of Astan Quds Razavi, then, pointed out the events of the period after the demise of the Prophet (S.A.W) and remarked, “After the Holy Prophet (A.S.) of Islam, those who looked up to Hazrat Zahra (S.A.) and the household of the Apostle of God (S.A.W.) were guided.”
He introduced the gratefulness to suffer God’s Saint afflictions, of the best type of gratefulness and asking the question that “What are afflictions of God’s Saints?” explained, “The concern to preserve the religion, enjoining good and forbidding wrong, exerting justice, fight against tyrants and oppressors, and defending the oppressed etc., were among the concerns of God’s Saints.”
“Gratefulness in this expression is for the afflictions of God’s Saints, and it is the best type for a God-seeking human, like the night of Ashura that all companions of Imam Hussein (A.S.) did not think about anything but him” Seyyed Ebrahim Raeisi said, referring to the phrase “O’ God, praise be to you, from your inevitable fate you prepared for your friends” in Nudbeh Prayer.
Grand Custodian of Astan Quds Razavi, in another part of his speech, introduced ISIS and al-Qaeda, the puppets of Zionism to cast schism and hitting the Islamic communities, and stressing that the Americans and Israelis surf over the sheer ignorance of ISIS, and they misuse them to pursue their purposes, stated, “Al-Qaeda and ISIS, are the puppets of Zionism to cast schism in the Islamic community, and they receive a substantial support from the hegemony.”
“If it was not for the struggles of Shrine Defenders, and endurance of Fatimid and Heidariyun armies to protect the boundaries of religion and divine values, and Islamic fortresses could not be maintained in Syria and Iraq, today, we should have fought ISIS in Iran’s cities”.
“The blood of martyrs, have had numerous effects and blessings, and if today our country has insight and security, and Islamic awakening has happened in the Muslim countries, it was due to the blood of the Ashuraic martyrs” Member of the Assembly of Experts reminded.
“The blood of martyrs wipes the ignorance and causes the awakening of asleep, as we can see that Yemeni people without enough troops and equipment, stand against the forces of the House of Saud regime” Grand Custodian of Astan Quds Razavi added in the end, pointing to the recent events in Yemen.
