On Saturday, January 30, 2021, on the occasion of the Fajr decade, the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly addressed the staff of the Assembly on the achievements of the glorious Islamic Revolution of Iran.
We appreciate the 42nd anniversary of the Islamic Revolution and enter the 43rd year of it.
“Although many people thought that we would not celebrate the 40th anniversary of the revolution, to the dismay of enemies and opponents of the system and the revolution, this happened and we took the second step. We ask God that the Islamic Revolution of Iran be the prelude to the advent of Imam Mahdi (a.s.), and may God enable us to live until his state of knowledge, love, justice, and rationality, and enjoy it,” Ayatollah Ramazani stated.
Achievements of the Islamic Revolution of Iran
“The revolution has had many achievements. One of the serious efforts of the enemy and the opponents of the system has been ignoring the services of the revolution or showing it insignificantly in order to create despair. The enemies have two important plans: first, to separate the officials from the people and the people from the officials. And second, the creation of despair and hopelessness by ignoring the achievements of the revolution,” He said on the achievements of the Islamic Revolution of Iran.
“In the medical field, we have achieved a lot after the revolution. At the beginning of the revolution, many doctors in the country were from India. But today, Islamic Iran has become a medical hub in the Middle East. But today, Islamic Iran has become a medical hub in the Middle East, so that many people from other countries come to Iran and enjoy our scientific achievements in the medical field. In many provinces, we have the most modern equipment to fight cancer. The entrance and exit of some hospitals are free and (in some hospitals) there is no charge for cancer treatment.” Stated the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly, regarding the achievements of the revolution in the medical and treatment field.
In the scientific and military fields, Iran is influential in the world arena
“Undoubtedly, today Iran is one of the most influential countries in the world and Iran’s influence in the region is undeniable. Historically, Iran has been one of the most powerful and vast countries, but in recent centuries, the weakness of the rulers has weakened Iran and even separated parts of it. Even in the Pahlavi era, when Iran was the sheriff and an ally of Western countries in the region (Middle East), some parts were separated from our country. Today, although Iran is not as large as in the past, it is influential in the scientific and military fields in the international arena.” He also said.
“In science, Iran is the 5th country in some fields, and the 7th in the world in some other fields and the statistics presented on the section of the Scientific Movement of Islamic Iran are in no way comparable to the past.” Added Ayatollah Ramazani, saying that the Supreme Leader of the Revolution had mentioned the “Science Development” as the first strategy in the Statement of the 2nd Phase of the Revolution.
“During the Islamic Revolution, many people were martyred. After that, the enemies imposed an eight-year war on us. The war with the (Iraqi) Ba’athist regime was not a war between the two countries, but a war between Iran and the arrogant current, and this is something that everyone agrees on. We had the right to defend, and that is reasonable. In the path of the revolution, we lost great people and prominent figures such as Martyr Ashrafi Esfahani, Martyr Dastgheib, Martyr Madani, Martyr Sadoughi, Martyr Ghazi Tabatabai, etc., and influential figures such as Martyr Motahhari, Martyr Mofatteh, Martyr Beheshti, etc. The enemy assassinated the personality of Shahid Beheshti before assassinated him physically; in a way, it was said that Ayatollah Taleghani had passed away with the plan of Martyr Beheshti. But the martyrdom of Beheshti and his companions caused a great change that the Imam said that Beheshti lived under oppression and he was a thorn in the side of the enemies. We have many of these martyrs and justice-seeking with outstanding roles executives such as Martyr Rajaei, Martyr Bahonar to the nuclear martyrs, and Martyr Fakhrizadeh.” He added, noting that the IRI has paid a lot of expenses to reach its achievements.
Iran ranks first in vaccine production in the Middle East
“We recently met with the president of the Pasteur Institute of Iran. We have a high capacity in this sector and Iran ranks first in the production of vaccines in the Middle East. The center has detailed discussions on the Covid Vaccine. The Supreme Leader’s recommendation to ban the import of American and British vaccines was certainly wise, and it was based on scientific research; an issue that needs to be discussed at another time.” Stated the member of the Assembly of Experts of the Leadership.
“Islam knows no borders and the unity of the Islamic Ummah is one of the most important issues we must pursue. The unity of Muslims, the approximation between (Islamic) denominations, and the explanation of the culture of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) by avoiding the exaggeration are important, prominent, and strategic points of the Islamic Republic.” He said on the value and position of unity and approximation in the Islamic world.
“As a leader and beloved of hearts, Martyr Qassem Soleimani taught us all the lesson of resistance. He was a role model. It was destined that General Soleimani would stand together with a prominent figure in the resistance in Iraq, Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes, and reach the great position of martyrdom.” Stated Ayatollah Ramezani, referring to the Resistance Current in the international arena.
Even a little betrayal of the Islamic system is not negligible
“We are the guardians of the blood of the martyrs. The purest blood has been shed in the way of the Islamic system. The Islamic system is a great trust that has been entrusted to us and we should not even become unmotivated. Not even a shred of betrayal of this great trust can be forgiven. However, in some areas, such as the field of justice, we have not reached the desired point. In the case of justice, people have not tasted it as they should. Officials in all bodies of the state (Legislature, Executive, and Judiciary) must do their best (for people). The legislature must enact the best laws worthy of the Revolution, the Executive must implement them properly, and the judiciary must prosecute the violators. It was said somewhere that the number of excessive salaries is small. I replied that in the Islamic system, even a small number of that is too. People do not like and do not accept these words.” He emphasized.
“In the 20th century, we encountered a great phenomenon that can be called a miracle. This miracle has been given to us. In the decade of Fajr, the achievements of the Islamic system (of Iran) in the fields of education, science, military, etc. must be expressed.” Stated the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
With the wise and sage management of late Imam Khomeini and Ayatollah Khamenei the Supreme Leader, we created an opportunity from all threats
“Despite all the sanctions, we have made great progress in the military field. We have been under sanctions since the beginning of the revolution, and today the most severe sanctions are imposed on us. From the sanctions, the Islamic Revolution of Iran created opportunities. The enemies wanted to threaten us with sanctions, but with the wise and sage management of late Imam Khomeini and the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, we created opportunities from all threats. Some do not want to see Iran’s scientific statistics in various fields in the world. Today, Islamic Iran is one of the strongest military and scientific powers among Islamic and other countries of the world. Among 50 Muslim countries, according to statistics, no country has the scientific and military power of Iran. Imam Khomeini and the Supreme Leader of the Revolution managed this system in the best way and we have gone through various crises since the beginning of the revolution.” He said, regarding the progress of the Islamic Revolution in the military arena.
“In the economic and cultural fields, we are at war and we must take care of the Islamic system. The healing and saving prescription for the Islamic Republic (of Iran) is following the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.). Rational and spiritual explanation of the school of AhlulBayt (a.s.) with the focus on justice and resistance is a healing prescription.” Ayatollah Ramazani also said.
We, followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school, have a universal message
“Today, someone who has something to say will win. Leading the International arena is by those who have a global message in the intellectual arena. We, followers of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) school (Shiites), have a universal message; a word that is a global world and the oppressed world like. Our rationality is not instrumental, but revelatory rationality that teaches both near-thinking and foresight. We have a responsible spirituality, not an irresponsible one. We have justice in the true sense of the word, not in the sense offered in the West. We have resistance in the true sense of the word, against tyranny and coercion. These are the great achievements of the Islamic system, and this great trust has been entrusted to us.” He stated.
“With empathy, togetherness, and unity, we must contribute to the realization of the goals of the revolution. Therefore, we must love our work. Duties put a lot of pressure on us. But we love our work so much that we do not feel tired. We expect that we passionately love our duties and that everyone will do something according to his ability. We must pursue tasks seriously. In this case, divine providence will definitely include us. Tawakkul (Trust in God), Tawassul (recourse in AhlulBayt) and contemplate go together.” Stated the member of the Assembly of Experts of the Leadership and the Secretary General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly on the duties of the Assembly.
