The Chief of Staff of the Supreme Leader says IS terrorists and their American and Israeli masters pose the gravest threat to the Muslim faith.
The Chief of Staff of the Supreme Leader has said the fact that as many as 20 million people, 4.5 million of them from overseas, are in the Iraqi holy cities of Najaf and Karbala to take part in Arba’een ceremonies and honor the memory of Prophet Muhammad’s grandson shows that the Messenger of God and his infallible household have been very successful in capturing the hearts and minds of the faithful.
According to Tasnim News Agency Hojatoleslam Mohammad Mohammadi Golpayegani made the comment at a function at Shahcheragh Shrine in the southern Iranian city of Shiraz. The following is the translation of what else the leader’s chief of staff told the service Friday evening:
Many pilgrims have walked long distances on their way to the Iraqi holy cities. […] The uprising Imam Hussein launched in Karbala [centuries ago] won’t drift into oblivion. On the contrary, its glory and loftiness are bound to increase by the year.
Today IS terrorists and their American and Israeli masters pose the gravest threat to the Muslim faith. Islam is a religion of compassion and love, but the stooges of Global Arrogance, including IS and other Takfiri groups around the world, are portraying it as a violent religion.
