TEHRAN (IQNA) – Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei hailed the annual Arbaeen pilgrimage as an unprecedented media in the world.


“The importance of Arbaeen since its beginning was as much as today. The first Arbaeen was the powerful media of Ashura. Those forty days were the days when the logic of Truth reigned among the dark world of Bani-Umayyahs and Bani-Sofyanis,” the Leader said in an address during a graduation ceremony held Sunday for the student officers and guards trainees at the Imam Hussain (AS) Academy in Tehran.

“The Ahl-ul-Bayt (AS) shaped an upheaval in a forty-day movement. Today, too, the Arbaeen walk is an eloquent voice and an unprecedented media in the complex and propagandized world. It is unprecedented in the world to see a huge crowd move toward that source [Imam Hussain's (AS) Shrine]. You rightly said that Hussein(AS) brings us together. This movement should increasingly expand and deepen,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.  

Elsewhere in his address, the Leader highlighted the US hostility with the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), saying it has added to the force’s dignity.

“Today, the IRGC is dignified both inside and outside the country, thanks be to God. The enemies have contributed to creating this dignity. With violent, aggressive and hostile behavior, the Americans increased the dignity of the IRGC. The enemies of God show hostility to God’s servants, and this hostility makes God’s servants more reputable and estimable,” quoted the Leader as saying.

“A permanent lesson before the eyes of the IRGC is the Quranic verse: “Mobilize your (defensive) force as much as you can to frighten the enemies of God and your own enemies.” {the Quran; 8:60}. Investigate to find out what you need in all military and intelligence arenas. During the tyrannical Pahlavi regime, we were dependent, backward and unknowledgeable in terms of military equipment. The military equipment of the IRGC must be advanced and up to date; you should invent and manufacture them yourselves.”
