Popular Support for Islamic Revolution Manifested in President’s Funeral, Leader Says

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The Iranian people’s massive turnout in the funeral of late Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi indicated their support for the mottos of the Islamic Revolution, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said.

Ayatollah Khamenei had a meeting with the families of the ‘Martyrs of Service’ in Tehran on Saturday, May 25.

During the meeting, the Leader stated that working for the people, serving the people, and caring for the people were among some of the most prominent characteristics of the martyrs who lost their lives during last week’s helicopter crash in northwestern Iran. “The late Mr. Raisi worked tirelessly day and night in the true sense of the word,” the Leader said.

The Leader conveyed his condolences to the families of the martyrs and praised late Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian as a tireless person in his efforts. “The account of the services and endeavors of Mr. Raisi and Mr. Amirabdollahian on both the domestic and foreign fronts is a long and detailed story,” he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei underscored that one of the most prominent features of Tabriz’s late Friday Prayer Leader, Ayatollah Ale-Hashem, was that he brought a whole new meaning to the Friday prayer. “Since his appointment as the Friday Prayer Leader of Tabriz, the late Ale-Hashem transformed this prayer from a simple act of worship to a holistic practice, encompassing spirituality, service to others, and community engagement.”

The Leader highlighted that a salient feature of Martyr Mousavi, Martyr Rahmati, and the martyrs of the flight crew was their dedication to public service, emphasizing that these very traits are the reason God made them a source of pride for the Iranian nation.

Referring to the movement and uprising of the people during the funeral of the martyrs in Tabriz, Qom, Tehran, Rey, Birjand, Mashhad, Maragheh, Zanjan and Najafabad, the Leader said, “These glorious funerals showed that the Iranian nation is full of spirit.”

While pointing to the enemies' propaganda and claims of the people's separation from the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Khamenei stated, “Before the eyes of the world and in practice, this incident proved the deep attachment and loyalty of the Iranian nation to the President and those who embodied the mottos of the Revolution.”

He described the late Iranian president as a true representation of the principles of the Revolution, Khamenei.ir reported.

“From the very beginning of his presidential campaign, Mr. Raisi stressed the mottos of the Revolution and the words of Imam Khomeini. The entire world knew him as the President of the Revolution,” the Leader stated.

“When people show such strong support and admiration for this man, they are essentially endorsing the mottos of the Revolution,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
