Ayatollah Hadavi Tehrani issued a congratulatory message on the liberation of al-Aqsa Mosque.
The text of the statement issued by senior cleric Ayatollah Hadavi Tehran is as follows:
In the Name of Allah, The Most Compassionate, The Most Merciful
Once again Allah almighty helped the believers and the divine force favored unity of the faithful. Victory of Palestinian Muslims over the Zionist regime which resulted in removal of controversial security devices installed at al-Aqsa gates brought joy and happiness to the Muslim community as well as all freedmen worldwide.
This fortunate event, once again proved that unity of a nation under the banner of faith and leadership of wise figures could bring a regime, which is armed to the teeth, to its knees and accept defeat.
It is hoped that faithful Palestinian nation continue on this path to stay united under the banner of Islam and leadership of Muslim scholars and do not digress from this divine straight path.
It is necessary that resistance groups in occupied Palestine learn the lesson of unity and friendship from this victory in order to avoid baseless arguments and stand together with their massive popular movements.
They should listen to almighty’s words when he said ‘hold fast to the bond of Allah and do not scatter’. (3:103)
I congratulate this great victory to Imam al-Asr (aj), Muslim leaders and scholars, especially Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei, Shia sources of emulation, Palestinian Muslim leaders as well as the brave and resistant people of Palestine.
Mahdi Hadavi Tehrani
