Ayatollah Arafi:‎
The director of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran ‎said that the enemies have reached a dead ‎end in their actions against Islamic Iran and said, “The authorities are not afraid of resistance ‎against the enemies.” ‎

RNA – Speaking at a commemoration at Qom’s Feyziyeh Seminary marking the martyrdom ‎anniversary of Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq and the anniversary of the attack by the Pahlavi regime ‎on this famous seminary on March 22, 1963, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi posed the question ‎‎“What is the reason for naming the Shi’ah school of thought ‘Ja’fari Shi’ism’ and responded, ‎‎“More than one hundred thousand hadiths (narrations) from the Imams and the Holy ‎Prophet [Muhammad] have reached us of which over thirty-eight thousand narrations are ‎related to Imam al-Sadiq.”‎
‎ ‎
The director of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran added, “The number of the students of Imam ‎al- Sadiq has been stated as more than four thousand individuals and more than two ‎thousand individuals ‎have narrated his narrations and this is the legacy of Imam al-Sadiq in ‎regard to whom the Ja’fari school of thought has been named after. If we put all of the ‎narrations of the other Imams alongside each other, we can say that all of the moral, ‎jurisprudential and theological teachings are found in the words of Imam al-Sadiq. Of course ‎this is an exaggeration but it is not far from reality.”‎

Referring to the situation during the Imamate of Imam al-Sadiq, he stated, “Today, in the ‎light of the Islamic Revolution, we are facing a special situation wherein we must be ‎determined like Imam al-Sadiq was in order to convey the treasures of the knowledge of ‎Imam al-Sadiq, Imam al-Baqir and the Family of the Prophet to the world today.”‎

Ayatollah Arafi stressed, “Today, unfortunately, the satanic army and traitors of history have ‎come to the battlefield against you, the great people, and the Islamic Resistance Front. All ‎the acts of treachery, threats and sanctions are meant to silence the voices of Feyziyeh and ‎the Islamic Revolution.”‎
‎ ‎
The member of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom addressed the enemies of the ‎Iranian people and the Islamic Resistance and said, “You have come to sanction the Iranian ‎people, threaten the Islamic Resistance ‎Front and persuade the mercenaries to fight against ‎the values. You think that such works are successful and you will succeed?!”‎

His Eminence continued, “You have come to hold a conference in Manama to exonerate ‎Israel as the enemy of the Messenger of God and the Islamic Ummah. There is a stain of ‎disgrace on you Arab mercenary leaders and affiliates of the arrogant powers who have ‎exonerated Israel in such a manner that an American official says the words of the Arab ‎leaders are greater than the words of ‎Netanyahu. Fie upon you! You have risen in war ‎against the Messenger of God and the entire Islamic Ummah. God’s curse on you, Oh ‎traitors!”‎
‎ ‎
Ayatollah Arafi ‎added, “Such works indicate that you have reached a dead end and you will ‎not be able to deal with the military and the steel-like resistance of the believers and the ‎advanced Iranian technology. You sanction our people but you will be defeated.”‎

He added, “Today, Feyziyeh Seminary stands alongside the people of Iran and the Islamic ‎Ummah. The sources of emulation and the scholars are sympathetic with the people and like ‎the altruists, they will be present in all arenas and today, we hear the cries of more than half ‎a century of Imam Khomeyni from Feyziyeh Seminary ‎which must stand against and resist ‎the aggressors.”‎
