RNA – In a message to the second symposium of Islamic Resistance parties and groups, which was held online on August 11, Grand Ayatollah Hoseyn Nouri-Hamadani, a renowned source of emulation, emphasized, “The expulsion of the United States from the region will be one of the dimensions of God’s severe revenge on the enemies of Islam and by reproducing the unifying teachings of the school of thought of Martyr Qasem Soleymani, it will be considered a strategic principle in strengthening the Islamic Resistance Front.”
The text of Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani’s message is as follows:
In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful
Praise be to God, the Lord of the worlds and salutations and peace be upon our Master Muhammad and his Pure Household
Salutations and greetings to this esteemed assembly and congratulations of the Ten Days of Wilayah (Guardianship) and Eid al-Ghadir.
We live in an age where the arrogant powers are constantly fanning the flames of discord and division in the Islamic world but the global resistance of justice-seeking systems, with the irreplaceable role of Martyr Qasem Soleymani, has borne the sweet fruit of destroying Daesh and defeating the supporters of terrorism in the region.
After the victory of the Islamic Resistance Front, Donald Trump, who did not want to be a loser in the war, tried to bury the story of Haj Qasem [Soleymani] in history by assassinating him, but in practice, he was defeated and now he is faced with the universal hatred of the people of the world and the international slogan of the people for the vengeance of General Soleymani that the inevitable expulsion of the United States from the region will be one of the dimensions of God’s severe revenge on the enemies of Islam.
Regardless of this issue, one should think about how the authority of the Islamic Resistance continues in order to achieve a new Islamic civilization in the post-Soleymani years and was guided by the strategic question of how to act in the intellectual and scientific confrontation with the United States and its allies because the continuation of victories and the continuation of the growing power of the Islamic Resistance Front is a software category and along with the modernization of the hardware of the countries in the region, scientific and theoretical modernization must be emphasized in order to achieve a new Islamic civilization.
In the meantime, the reproduction of the unifying teachings of the school of thought of Martyr Soleymani is a strategic principle in the unity of the Islamic ummah, strengthening the Islamic Resistance Front and accelerating the demand for a new Islamic civilization.
In explaining this issue, it should be said that the unity of the Islamic ummah is one of the vital factors for the flourishing of the Islamic civilization. Reflection on the signification of General Martyr Haj Qasem Soleymani shows that the great martyr considered his position as the sacrifice of Muslims and the general public, and thus General Soleymani became an indicator and a myth for the Islamic ummah during his struggles against Daesh.
Also, the realization of modern Islamic civilization depends on a positive and constructive confrontation with the multifaceted world of graduates of different ethnicities, languages, cultures and religions in Islamic countries and other human societies and this principle is also formed in the light of the principle of migration in the context of culture-centredness, interactionism and pacifism.
Martyr Soleymani followed Imam Khomeyni who said, “Our revolution is not limited to Iran” and the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution left his homeland to form a front of right against wrong with borders and crossed the borders of ethnicity, race, nationality and even religion and in addition to the Shi’ahs, he defined his cosmopolitanism in terms of interfaith interactions with Sunni brothers and even followers of other divine religions, especially Christians in the region, in order to establish front without borders against American oppression and Takfiri terrorists.
Yes, the semantic and civilizational horizon of Martyr Soleymani was not dedicated to specific ethnicity, religion, nationality or self-made human borders but rather the connection of the Islamic world and other human societies to the Imamate, through inter-religious knowledge and jurisprudence, was the most important epistemological form of this international resistance.
In fact, the monotheistic basis of General Soleymani in anti-oppression struggles is strongly tied to the element of wisdom, imamate, guardianship and jurisprudence, so according to the verse: “Muhammad, the Apostle of God, and those who are with him are hard against the faithless and merciful amongst themselves” [48:29]. He did not suffer from violence but with jurisprudential wisdom and rationality, he broke the atmosphere of anti-approximation and thus tried to form a new Islamic civilization by paying attention to the cultural geography of unity and recognizing epistemological commonalities.
Undoubtedly, the martyrdom of Sardar Soleymani put new blood in the veins of the resistance, but more importantly, it is the school of thought and knowledge of Martyr Soleymani that has shaped the glorious worldview of the structure of civilization in the Islamic world and will outline the global framework of modern Islamic civilization.
In conclusion, I would like to thank all the organizers of this meeting, especially the Revolutionary Party with the precedence of the Islamic Coalition Party, and especially Mr. Asadollah Badamchian.
I pray God Almighty for the success of everyone.
