In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
The 14th of Khordad [3rd of June] represents the bond and attachment of the Iranian nation to the great Imam. This day is a reminder of the mourning of the Islamic ummah during the separation and farewell following death of the righteous servant of God, Imam Khomeyni. We commemorate the grief over the absence of this great and rare man who, with his strong faith, honesty and purity, raised the flag of rising up against oppression and darkness and the valuable legacy of the Islamic Revolution. The Great Khomeyni, the believer of God and the people, brought religion to the scene of power and sovereignty and presented independence, freedom and faith to the people of Iran.
Adherence to the basic values of Islam, wakefulness and vigilance in recognizing the enemies and the protection of national unity, which is the truth of the thought of Imam Khomeyni, and revolutionary actions and the jihadi movement will strengthen and secure us from deviation and error and is the light of the path of the Islamic Ummah in the great jihad against the arrogant powers.
The Imam’s school of thought, is a school of thought of religion, justice and rationality. These important elements brought the Islamic Revolution to the maturity of its fortieth anniversary. Today, in the light of the special attention of Hadhrat Wali al-Asr [Imam al-Mahdi] and the assertions of Ayatollah Khamenei, Imam Khomeyni’s divine thinking is alive in the Islamic Revolution and his lasting legacy waves the flag of our Islamic identity and power and our revolution in the world of oppression and darkness. Undoubtedly, the continuation of the movement of Imam Khomeyni’s thoughts and conduct on the path of guardianship will make us successful and prosperous as we take steps in the second phase of the Islamic Revolution more.
The Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom offers its condolences on the thirtieth anniversary of the death of the great leader of the Islamic Revolution and remembers the martyrs of the divine and popular insurrection of the 15th of Khordad 1342 [the 5th of June, 1963] and invites everyone to participate passionately in the ceremonies being held for this purpose.
May the peace, mercy and blessings of God be with you,
Head of the Supreme Council of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom
