Qom Friday Prayer Leader:‎
Rasa – Ayatollah Arafi ‎said, “Today, the authorities, the government, the diplomatic ‎apparatus and the Expediency ‎Discernment Council must know that in different cases we ‎must rely on the principles of the ‎revolution and we not be afraid of the howls of the ‎enemies and their threats.”‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers at Qom’s ‎Qods ‎‎‎Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi said that we appreciate the people of Iran for creating an ‎epic on the 22nd of Bahman [11 February], the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, and ‎said, “We must be thankful to the people of brave, insightful, resistant and aware people ‎that they have overcome forty years of roadblocks and have born the hardships but they ‎still stand by the Islamic Revolution.”‎
‎ ‎
The head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran ‎added, “For many years, the enemies attacked ‎the Iranian people from all sides and threatened them and the younger generation was ‎subject to many conspiracies, sanctions, wars, problems and rising prices meant to separate ‎then from the path of God, Islam and the ideals of the Revolution, but they proved their ‎loyalty and swore allegiance to Islam and the ideals of Islam and the Revolution.”‎

He described the 22nd of Bahman as the demonstration of the peak of the nation’s ‎awareness and said, “The enemies of this epic didn’t believe and the friends of the ‎Revolution were astonished. Sanctions, rising prices, difficulties, hardships and widespread ‎propaganda attacks were imposed so that they can say that the year 1397 [2018-2019] is ‎the year of the despair and disappointment of the Iranian people and retreat from divine ‎ideals. The younger generation have remained in the hands of the Revolution.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Arafi added, “With their passionate presence on the ‎22nd of Bahman, the people ‎announced to Trump, Netanyahu and their dependent mercenaries and the West that the ‎Islamic Revolution is lasting and rooted in the depths of the nature of the people and youth. ‎The young generation stood by the ideals of the Revolution in Tehran, Qom and throughout ‎the country. The enemies must see the greatness of the nation and must learn from the ‎greatness of the nation and stop their treason and betrayal so that we can speak with them. ‎If they continue their present path, they will realize the error of their ways.”‎

The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom said, “The Islamic Revolution, in ‎contrast to other revolutions that were diverted in their first and second decades, is still ‎standing and pursuing the great purpose of civilization. The honour of the Iranian nation is ‎that they have undertaken the responsibility as the flagbearers of Islamic civilization-building ‎in the new age and the second step must begin with the goal of civilization-building ‎and ‎taking long steps.”‎
‎ ‎
Referring to the emphasis of the Supreme Leader on the existence of revolutionary and jihadi ‎culture in all fields, he stated, “The jihadi culture can create a miracle with the lofty efforts of ‎the people and authorities. The Resistance Economy is derived from the jihadi culture.”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Arafi ‎added, “The revolutionary spirit in international relations can create dignity. ‎Today, the authorities, the government, the diplomatic apparatus and the Expediency ‎Discernment Council must know that in different cases we must rely on the principles of the ‎revolution and we not be afraid of the howls of the enemies and their threats. If we want to ‎sign a document, we must measure all aspects of it, and if we see that it creates dangers for ‎our Revolution and our friends, we must stand firm and not fear anything. This is the ‎expectation that the 22nd of Bahman that has been created and the nation and the ‎government must stand for the ideals of Islam and the Revolution.”‎
