In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
All praise belongs to Allah, the Lord of the Two Worlds, and peace and blessings be upon the greatest and trustworthy Messenger, and all the prophets and divine envoys.
I welcome the honorable Supreme Leader's representative in the Province, the honorable West Azerbaijan Governor, all the senior managers and participants and organizers, and all dear guests of the Fourth Conference on Islamic Awakening in Urmia.
I'm speaking from the land of science and culture, philosophy and ethics, land of martyrs like Bakeri, a city of scholars, philosophers, mystics, scientists like Hessamedin Chalabi, Saffyaddin Ormavi and the representative of kind, sincere and aware people, a City of three thousand years of civilization with unity and harmony of different religions live under the flag of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The Day of Ashura is on the tenth day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar and marks a very important day of the Mourning of Muharram.
The uprising of Imam Hussein (AS) as the "leader of the martyrs" in the day of Ashura at Karbala for prayer, fasting , alms and enjoining not to commit what is unlawful and recommending to do good, and other religious precept of God.
Hazrat Abu Abdullah al-Hussein (peace and greetings be upon him) rose to stay alive the religion and by doing the divine commandments, sin and wrong has been dismantled and the spirit of virtue and religious among the Muslims to become alive.
The aim and motivation of the people of Muslim countries and hard beaten people in the district that witness their public uprisings, destruction of oppression, tyranny, arrogance and establishing the rule of divine justice and the implementation of Islamic law as "directing others to do what is good" and avoid dependence on foreigners and aliens as " not to commit what is unlawful ".
These were the motives and aims of Imam Hussein (peace and greetings be upon him ) of uprising in the day of Ashura, as he stated: That is my goal in this travel, enjoining not to commit what is unlawful and recommending to do good, and resigned from this motion, modified corruption and revival of custom and the people of my grand father, the Prophet and the way of my father is Ali-ebne abitaleb (As).
If Yazid ibn Muawiyah affected to dissoluteness, the related governments in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen and the Persian Gulf states as well as corrupt government of Yazid affected to dissoluteness. For instance, in some countries such as Tunisia have said Islam removing has been improved that a crime was going to the mosque.
Today, the enemy’s most important tool for confronting Islamic Awakening is creating discord. They want to pitch Muslims against Muslims, destroy Muslims at the hands of Muslims and keep them busy with conflicts.
We hope that the Islamic awakening and Islamic nation with the flag of Ashura to inform a universe of voice of freedom, fraternity and worship to God and promoter of enjoining not to commit what is unlawful and recommending to do good.
