“Don’t the enemies of the Islamic Republic conspire against us? Of course, they do, but the only thing which discourages them to practice their plots against Iran is the scientific progress of the country,” said the interim leader of Tehran Friday Prayers, Ayatollah Mohammed Emami Kashani, in the second sermon of this week’s ritual in Imam Khomeini Grand Musalla of the city.
The senior cleric offered gratitude toward the nation for huge turn-out at the elections on February 26, and described the participation as a threat for the enemies of Islam and Iran.
The authority to rule the Islamic community is for the one chosen by God and when he is not among us it is up to the qualified cleric, underlined the grand Ayatollah.
He quoted one of the holy figures of Islam that a country needs a ruler who observes and monitors the law, and if he becomes corrupted, the law will be violated.
Then Ayatollah Emami Kashani drew a comparison between the status of law in Iran and with other countries and contributed the relative success to the system devised for the Islamic Republic of Iran.
