Qom Friday Prayer Leader:‎
The purpose of the enemies’ propaganda war is to create hopelessness and pessimism ‎among the people
Rasa – Ayatollah Sa’idi ‎said that the negotiations with the United States are nothing but ‎deception and trickery and added, “People expect the officials to participate with dignity and ‎authority in global organizations ‎and not fall into the traps of the deceitful disbelievers.”‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon delivered to a large and fervent crowd of believers in ‎‎Qom’s Qods Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Sayyed Mohammad Sa’idi offered his condolences on the ‎days of the commemoration of the martyrdom of Imam al-Husayn and said, “Tasu’a and ‎Ashura were two decisive days in Shi’ah history.”‎


The custodian of the Holy Shrine of Lady Fatimah al-Ma’sumah stressed that the uprising of ‎Imam al-Husayn was had an essence of anti-oppression and said, “At that time, the ‘tree of ‎goodness’ of authentic Islam was under the influence of oppression, repression and ‎distortion by the Umayyad dynasty but Imam Khomeyni’s uprising breathed a new spirit into ‎Islamic society and revived the life of religion.”‎


He explained, “The pure Shi’ahs never submitted to the tyrannical rulers. Ashura is a model ‎for the uprisings against the oppressors, especially the Islamic Revolution. From the ‎beginning of the movement, in the words of the Imam Khomeyni and the slogans of the ‎people, it was clearly emphasized that the influence of the Islamic Revolution comes from ‎the uprising of Ashura. The similarity of Imam Khomeyni’s movement with the uprising of ‎Imam al-Husayn was that in the Islamic Revolution, wasn’t only that there was opposition ‎between the ruler and the people but there was opposition between two thoughts and two ‎lines – intellectual and political.”‎


Ayatollah Sa’idi ‎explained that the perspective of Imam Khomeyni and the people was ‎toward Imam al-Husayn and Ashura but the perspective ‎of the Shah [Mohammad Reza ‎Pahlavi] was toward Cyrus and the imperial monarchical regime. “This regime decided to ‎base the Iranian calendar on the beginning of the Persian Empire, cut off Iran’s links with ‎Islam and tried to position Iran’s identity against an Islamic identity and assimilate Iran into ‎the anti-value system of the West,” he said.‎


The representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution [Ayatollah Sayyed Ali ‎Khamenei]in Qom ‎‎said, “The Iranian nation has always commemorated the days of Tasu’a ‎and Ashura and were inspired by these days. Tasu’a and Ashura‎ have played an important ‎role since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution, during the Sacred Defense [Iran-Iraq War] ‎and during the suppression of the sedition of 2009 and this year, the believing people will ‎commemorate these two days by protecting the canonical standards and will engage in ‎mourning.”‎


He ‎highlighted the Quranic analysis in the words of the Supreme Leader and noted, “The ‎Quran states that friendship with one’s sworn enemies doesn’t make any change in their ‎principled and rooted hostility as the enemies may pretend to be friends with believers and ‎want to negotiate but they openly and secretly act with hostility and implement such hostility ‎and if they overcome the believers, they will impose a variety of suffering, torture and grief.”‎


Ayatollah Sa’idi ‎said that the Quran states that the main goal of the disbelievers is that they ‎want to turn the believers into disbelievers and noted, “The American leaders who want to ‎negotiate are nothing but cowards and deceitful people. People expect the officials to ‎participate with dignity and authority in global organizations and not fall into the traps of the ‎deceitful disbelievers.”‎


The Friday prayer leader of Qom ‎stated that today, in addition to the economic war, the ‎enemies have invested in a media and propaganda war, said, “The main roots of the ‎propaganda war are in the hands of the United States and the Zionists, who are supported ‎by some of the Qaroun’s [reference to arrogant, wealthy powers] in the region.”‎


He said that we must not exaggerate in our expression and criticism of the problems facing ‎Iran and noted, “These exaggerations pollute the environment of country and frustrate and ‎make the people pessimistic. Pessimism towards the revolutionary forces and institutions is ‎a dangerous issue. Criticisms must be friendly and such criticisms are considered as a gift ‎from the point of view of Islam and alongside the criticisms, the good things must also be ‎expressed”‎


Ayatollah Sa’idi ‎‎said, “If there are criticisms of the government organs, they must also state ‎good things. Party and political motives must not disregard the good things. The important ‎part of confidence building is the responsibility of the three branches of the government and ‎government organs and the other part is the responsibility of the media organizations, the ‎audience, the speakers on the pulpits as well as the people, because without the backing of ‎the people, no government is unable to work.”‎


In conclusion, His Eminence ‎made remarks about mourning and stressed, “Any kind of ‎movement and program that gives an excuse to the enemies and malicious people must be ‎avoided. In the circles and mourning groups, the utmost attention must be given to ‎increasing knowledge and creating familiarity with the culture of the Ahlul-Bayt. Passion is a ‎very good thing but it must not be such that one’s senses are lost in passion.”‎
