On the eve of welcoming the Muslims holy fasting Month of Ramadan, a ceremony of establishing bonds with the Holy Quran was held at the presence of Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei.
During the meeting, Imam Khamenei praised the Holy Quran as a divine masterpiece that attracts the hearts. “The Quran is a matchless artistic work. The first factor in attracting the hearts to Islam like a strong magnet was the artistic dimension of the Quran.”
His Eminence regarded recitation ceremonies as occasions to celebrate the artistic aspect of the Quran, and further advised reciters to recite the Quran in a way that emphasized the meanings of the divine Script.
Imam Khamenei reminded the audience of the Quranic advice to distrust the oppressors. “Ignoring the Quranic advice not to trust the oppressors is predicament of the people of the world today. They trust the tyrants and they become miserable. We have witnessed that there was some sort of awakening, some sort of enthusiasm among Islamic countries but like a burning flame that is put out by pouring ashes over it, it was extinguished.”
“Because they relied on the US and the Zionist regime. They did not realize what they had to do,” Imam Khamenei stressed.
“Imam Khomeini taught us how to act and we took action. Today the path is the same and there is no option but to resist the devils and the unbelievers,” Imam Khamenei concluded.
