RNA – The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei, has called on the Iranian people not to be afraid of the United States and other bullying powers.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks on Saturday after taking part in a Quran recitation event to mark the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan.
The Supreme Leader attended the event via videoconference in line with guidelines to avoid gatherings to prevent the spread of the Novel Coronavirus.
Ayatollah Khamenei congratulated the advent of the holy month of Ramadan and called on Muslims to act upon the teachings of the Holy Quran that could save all humanity.
The Supreme Leader added that Quran has guidelines for resolving the problems of human beings and stated that some verses of the holy book teach people social relations that they need in their lives.
Ayatollah Khamenei emphasized that the Holy Quran teaches Muslims not to trust despots at all.
During the ceremony, a number of reciters read out verses of the Holy Quran in their melodious voices.
In a statement on Friday, the Leader’s office declared Saturday, April 25, as the first day of the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan.
The beginning of the most sacred month of the Islamic calendar comes as Muslims across the world are battling the coronavirus pandemic. Measures to contain the spread of the virus will prevent many Muslims from breaking their daylong fast in large masses as they normally do.
