Representative of the Supreme Leader in North Khorasan:‎
Rasa – Hujjat al-Islam Yaqoubi said, “Despite the continuation of threats and sanctions by ‎the enemies, the Iranian people overcome the enemies with resistance and reliance on ‎internal power.”‎

RNA – In a meeting with officials of North Khorasan province, Hujjat al-Islam Abolqasem ‎Yaqoubi, the representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in North ‎Khorasan province, emphasized upon the necessity of proper service by the authorities to ‎the people and considered forbearance and patience as among the requirements of true ‎reverence for the clients in the administrative offices. ‎

The Friday prayer leader of Bojnourd said that the tools of a manager and official are ‎forbearance and patience and noted, “In Nahj al-Balaghah [The Peak of Eloquence], [Imam ‎Ali] said that the person who wants to be an official must first establish forbearance in ‎himself as his weapon.”‎

He pointed out that the students of the Imams had a great deal of patience and tolerance ‎and said, “Malik al-Ashtar was passing by an alley. An ignorant person dumped garbage on ‎him. A person who saw this incident told the ignorant person, ‘This person is the commander ‎of the army of Imam Ali’ and the person rushed to him to apologize and saw that Malik was ‎supplicating in the mosque. When he went to him in order to apologize, Malik said ‘I had ‎come to pray for you.’”‎

Hujjat al-Islam Yaqoubi stressed that we must not rush in our judgement and said, “In Nahj ‎al-Balaghah [Imam Ali] said, ‘If you cannot be forbearing, feign to do so because it is ‎seldom that a man likens himself to a group and does not become as one of them.”‎

The head of the provincial council of the Islamic Seminary of North Khorasan added, “Imam ‎Ali said, ‘Forbearance is (like) a kinsfolk (a supporter of goodness).’ With forbearance, the ‎followers of a person will increase and a patient and forbearing person is respected by the ‎people.”‎

He stated that with the existence of some economic and livelihoods in the country, adding, ‎‎“Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq said, ‘We [Imams] are patient, but our Shi’ahs are indeed more patient ‎than us. We have patience while we know [the wisdom behind our difficulties] but you are ‎patient while you don’t know.’ This is because our Imams have the knowledge of the ‎unseen. They were aware of the future and behind the scenes and for this reason, patience ‎was easier for them.”‎

The teacher of jurisprudence in the Islamic Seminary of North Khorasan said, “Shi’ahs, ‎despite the fact that they have no knowledge of the unseen, remain on the scene, and while ‎they don’t know a lot of issues, they are satisfied with the satisfaction of God. But the ‎Immaculate Imams are aware of the unseen and endure it and as result of the level of the ‎patience of the Imam is greater.”‎

In conclusion, Hujjat al-Islam Yaqoubi stated, “Despite the continuation of the threats and ‎sanctions of the enemies, the Iranian people can resolutely overcome this difficult path with ‎patience and resistance and reliance on their internal capabilities and abilities again and ‎continue on their path to the peaks of progress and material and spiritual excellence.” ‎
