Leader’s Letter Helps Western Youth to Recognize True Islam: Iranian Cleric
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Tehran's Provisional Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani underlined that Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei’s recent letter to the Western youth, can help them know about “true Islam”.
“The letter revolves around two main topics, the first topic is religious ideology and the second one is political ideology,” Ayatollah Emami Kashani said, addressing a large gathering of worshippers here in Tehran on Friday.
He further emphasized that the religious ideology is connected with the Islamic thinking, adding that in this way, all can recognize the Muslim world’s thoughts.
“The Leader’s second letter to the Western youth contained important points (which help) in recognizing true Islam,” the cleric noted.
Elsewhere in his remarks, the cleric warned against the spread of extremist beliefs by terrorist groups like ISIL (also known as Daesh), saying that they should not be allowed to develop their ideas in the name of Islam.
Ayatollah Emami Kashani also stressed the need for the youth around the world to exercise vigilance and establish a proper relationship with Islam.
Ayatollah Khamenei’s second letter to the youth in the West was released on Sunday, November 29, following the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.
In the letter, the Leader underlined that it is only the “youth , who by learning lessons from today’s hardships, will be able to find new solutions for building the future, and block off-roads which have led the West to this current position.”
The Leader’s letter came against the backdrop of a renewed wave of attempts in the West to spread Islamophobia after a string of terrorist attacks claimed by Daesh (ISIL) shocked Paris on November 13.
