A number of Quran activists, Qaris, memorizers, and Quranic officials, representing the Quranic community, visited the mausoleum of Imam Khomeini (RA) on Tuesday to renew allegiance with the ideals of the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
They also laid a wreath on the tomb of the late Imam and recited prayers in a ceremony, held ahead of the Ten-Day Fajr (dawn) celebrations (February 1-11) marking the anniversary of the Islamic Revolution.
At the end of the ceremony, the participants issued a statement in which they called on the Iranian nation to display their support for the revolution, Quran, and Leader, through their massive participation in nationwide rallies on February 11.
The statement also hailed the recent victory of the resistance front against the Takfiri terrors group, Daesh (ISIL or ISIS), in the region and appreciated the efforts of fighters from Iran, Syria, Iraq and other Muslim countries that contributed to the great victory.
Every year, millions of Iranians across the country observe ten days of celebrations marking the anniversary of the victory of the revolution that put an end to the monarchy of the US-backed Pahlavi regime in the country.
The day of Imam Khomeini’s return to Iran marks the beginning of the Ten Days of Dawn, which culminates with the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution on February 11.
The Iranian nation toppled the US-backed Pahlavi regime 38 years ago, ending the 2,500 years of monarchic rule in the country.
The Islamic Revolution spearheaded by the late Imam Khomeini established a new political system based on Islamic values and democracy.
