Khamenei Tells Winners of Quran Competition: Ignoring Holy Book Can Lead to ‘Cooperation With Zionist Regime’
Iranian Ayatollah Sayed Ali Khamenei on Tuesday warned competitors in the 31st International Quran Competition that a lack of “intimacy with the Quran” could lead to “fratricide or even cooperation with the Zionist Regime,” state news agency Mehr reported.
“Intimacy with Quran is an indication that the heart is prepared to receive heavenly guide,” Khamenei said at the competition’s closing ceremony. “Today, the greatest plight for Islamic world is ignoring the intimacy with Quran and subsequently, to remain unaware of the enemies’ rouses.”
He said Islam’s enemies waged proxy wars in Islamic societies, according to Mehr, then he warned that “some parts of the Ummah [the global Muslim population] ignore such policies, and they easily fall to the trap of fratricide or even cooperation with the Zionist Regime.”
“The heavenly blessings and understanding Quranic criteria to know the enemies hinge upon close companionship of Quran,” the Ayatollah said.
