  • Holy Quran advices not to trust oppressors: Leader

On the eve of the beginning of the blessed month of Ramadan, a ceremony of establishing bonds with the Holy Quran was held at the presence of the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

According to IRNA, in this meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei praised the Holy Quran as a divine masterpiece that attracts the hearts and asserted: "The Quran is a matchless artistic work. The first factor in attracting the hearts to Islam like a strong magnet was the artistic dimension of the Quran."

Ayatollah Khamenei advised reciters to recite the Holy Quran in a way that emphasized the meanings of the divine Script and added: "I have repeatedly advised our friends to recite the Quran in a way that emphasized the meaning to the audience."

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution reminded his audience of the Quranic advice to distrust the oppressors and stressed: "Ignoring the Quranic advice not to trust the oppressors is predicament of the people of the world today. They trust the tyrants and they become miserable. We have witnessed that there was some sort of awakening, some sort of enthusiasm among Islamic countries but like a burning flame that is put out by pouring ashes over it, it was extinguished. Because they relied on the US and the Zionist regime."

The Leader also praised the memory of Imam Khomeini (God bless his soul) for his leadership in acting upon the Quran and said: "Our nation appreciated that and since day one of the great movement by our nation, the persistence of the revolution, the resistance of the nation and the extraordinary progress of the country have owed it to acting upon the Quran thanks to the leadership of Imam Khomeini."
