Imam Khamenei: Qur’anic guidance covers all areas of human life
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Imam Ali Khamenei has congratulated Muslims across the world for the arrival of the holy month of Ramadan, saying Qur’an’s guidance is not limited to Muslims, but is for all humans.
“The Qur’an’s guidance is not particular to a limited area in humanity’s life. Qur’anic guidance covers all areas of human life,” the Leader said on Wednesday during a virtual Qur’anic recitation ceremony, an annual event held on the first day of the month of Ramadan.
“It is not the case that the Qur’an guides people in one area but leaves them alone in another essential area. No, the Qur’an deals with all aspects and corners of humanity’s life,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.
“The Qur’an itself does not step aside in any way when it comes to political-social challenges. And it does not refrain from confronting the Taghut (domineering, evil powers), the arrogant, the wasteful and the oppressors. It has always stood up to them.”
In another part of his statements, Ayatollah Khamenei warned against protracted talks aimed at reviving the 2015 nuclear deal, reiterating that Iran will only return to its commitments under the accord once it has verified that all US sanctions have been removed.
“The talks shouldn’t become talks of attrition,” the Leader said. “They shouldn’t be in a way that parties drag on and prolong the talks. This is harmful to the country.”
“The fact that the Americans talk about engaging in direct and indirect negotiations [with Iran] is not because they want to negotiate to accept the truth, rather they want to negotiate to impose their wrongful argument” on Iran, he added.
