Qom Friday Prayer Leader:
Ayatollah Arafi considered the presence of the maximum number of people in the elections as ensuring the authority and greatness of the Iranian nation and said, “Even one vote more by the people pushes the enemies back and a one percent increase in participation increases our security and authority.”

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon to a large and fervent crowd of believers at ‎Qom’s ‎Qods ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Prayer Hall, Ayatollah Alireza Arafi referred to the 22 Bahman [11 February] rallies and said, “We thank the Iranian people and the honourable people of Qom for their passionate participation in the 22 Bahman rallies and in the commemoration programs for Haj Qasem Soleymani because the Iranian people gave the best response to the test.”

The head of the Islamic Seminaries of Iran referred to his recent trip to India and said, “Hundreds of magnificent ceremonies were held in India for Haj Qasem Soleymani in India and in more than 80 other countries. When I was in one of the cities of India a few days ago, I saw a strong interest in the Islamic Revolution and the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution among the people who stood up in love for the Islamic Revolution and Iran.”

Referring to today’s legislative elections, he said, “Today, we are in the midst of a great divine experiment, a very important act of worship and a revolutionary duty. Today, the 37th election of the Islamic system is taking place and nowhere in the world has a revolution like this stood in the way of the people’s votes and the holding of elections.”

Ayatollah Arafi added, “In the most difficult conditions of the Islamic system and the great nation of Iran, they came to the ballot box. All of the pillars of power in the Islamic system were based on the rules of Islam and the opinions of the great Iranian people and all of the pillars of the system were elected by direct and indirect votes.”

The jurisprudent member of the Guardian Council added, “The presence of the maximum number of people in the elections ensures the authority and greatness of the Iranian nation and even one vote more by the people pushes the enemies back and a one percent increase in participation increases our security and authority. Participation in the elections is a great act of divine worship and an important divine and revolutionary duty.”

He continued, “The enemies must know that just as the people passionately participated in the funeral of Haj Qasem and 22 Bahman rallies, they will continue to disappoint the enemies through their presence.”

Ayatollah Arafi referred to the discovery of the Novel Coronavirus in Qom and said, “We must consider cleanliness and health care as important and follow the rules of the matter. All of these issues must make us aware of God and we must not be negligent toward paying attention and resorting to God Almighty because it’s effective in all aspects of life.”

He added, “We must avoid magnifying and creating fear. We have to be careful not to panic and scare society and we hope God keeps all tribulations away from our nation.”
