In a meeting with the director and deputy members of the Department of Social Welfare of Qom province, Grand Ayatollah Hoseyn Nouri-Hamadani explained that the enemies know Islam and that the Al Saud are one of the most dangerous enemies of Islam because they use religion as a weapon of war.
Saudi Arabia, he said, has established universities and extremist madrassahs which teach Wahhabism. These schools graduate thousands of people every year who believe that Shi’as are infidels and polytheists.
“Wahhabis do not consider resorting to the United States as polytheism but consider resorting to the Infallible Imams as polytheism,” he noted.
Ayatollah Nouri-Hamadani emphasized that Islam is a religion of public service, saying that serving the people connects man to God and it should be noted that Islam is considered as the social assistant of the people. He said that service has many forms in Islam and that in the Holy Quran one of the kinds of service mentioned is charity.
He noted that cultural education is also a form of service and added that it is important to prepare the people to sacrifice themselves for revolutionary means and added that revolution has three pillars – pure Muhammadan Islam, the people and guardianship.
“Imam Khomeini revived pure Islam which was marginalized under the Pahlavi regime. Thus, with the advent of Islam, the poor and disadvantaged became hopeful. Now the enemies of Islam have become desperate and frustrated,” the cleric said.
