2009: Ayatollah Montazeri’s Message for the New Year

2009: Ayatollah Montazeri’s Message for the New Year

Source: Jaras
Date: March 2009

[New Year prayer]

O saviour of hearts and sights, guide of night and day, you who can transform our being, transform me to be the very best.

This prayer is read when we welcome the New Year. It is a fact that I have mentioned many times before. The word eid (in Persian, the anniversary of a celebratory event) is, in fact, Arabic. Its root is the Arabic word evd. Those gentlemen here who study linguistics are aware of this. It is in the same family of words as eoud, which means ‘to return,’ or ‘to refer back’ because it is something that is repeated every year and creates a transformation. Eid-al-Ghadir applies here as well, because every year the memory of Ghadir returns to us, and people talk about it. … Continue Reading

In the name of God,

A lady passed a way today; a lady who was known to the world through her husband, and through her son. The respectable Ms. Rabbani, spouse of Grand Ayatollah Montazeri, was someone who had fought [in the resistance against the Shah] anonymously and without any expectations [of fame]. She had waited [for long periods] at the doors of the Shah’s prisons for a few minutes’ conversation with her son or her husband. She was a loyal companion and friend to her husband during his exile. Most importantly of all, she was a source of support and spirit to those families involved in the resistance; [families who had loved ones detained or martyred]. However, the victory for the Islamic Revolution did not put an end to her pains and misfortunes. … Continue Reading

One of the final interviews of Ayatollah Montazeri with Radio Zamaneh Part-1

When I read the departed Imam’s [Khomeini] letter that was also without a date I was deeply saddened. My son-in-law, Mr. Seyed Hadi , was present too, and he told me that now that Imam has finalized his words in a letter, it would not be right to say something [in refute, or as an objection.] I replied: “How could it be not right?” When a man has been sentenced to two to three years in prison based on the interpretation of Judge from his crimes, now we can’t send him to his death just because (s)he remained faithful to their ideology.

Ahmad Montazeri, son of the late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri and head of his office, offered his condolences for the loss of this divine scholar and great Source of Immolation [1] to the Shi’ite World:

In The Name of God the Merciful and the Compassionate,

We are all from God and to Him we shall return –

“Among the believers are men who have been true to their pledge with Allah. Some have completed their vow (to the utmost), and others (still) wait: but they have not changed (their determination) in the least” [Qur’an: 33-23]

However, the authorities subsequently altered the election results, which resulted in the conditions we are witnessing today. … Continue Reading

Mahdi Karoubi: Complete Statement for the Anniversary of the Birth of the Green Movement

June 20, 2010

The vote they stole from you and the rights that they took from you unjustly are a shameful stain that cannot be hidden with whatever colour it is painted over. This is so much the case that after one year, despite all the pressures and intimidation, not only have your rightful demands not been forgotten, but this desire for change has taken deep root in different layers of society, based on an extensive social network.

Karoubi’s Open Letter Commemorating Teachers’ Day and International Workers’ Day

Achieving rights and respect for workes is preconditioned by taking up correct social and economic policies that would stimulate the economy and create jobs for everyone who has qualification without any discrimination based on people’s beliefs and ethnicity.
