✅In the name of Allah
#Willayat(The lecture of Ayatollah Khamenei in Ramadan of 1394 in Mashhad): We present you it's summary: 👇👇👇
I explained those issues about the prophet’s missions because I intend to talk about👉 ‘wilayat’ in a new way, that is, I mean to discuss the roots of wilayat, not in a simplistic manner as some people think.
❓Now let me ask this question: is the prophet able to administer such a society single- handedly? Of course not.
❓Doesn’t such a society need an administration and organized units to carry out its commitments?
❓ Doesn’t it need soldiers to defend it against its enemies?
❓ Doesn’t the prophet need some helpers and comrades to help him further his message?
⭕️Yes, the answer to all those questions is in the affirmative and our holy Prophet carried out all these obligations through ordinary, worldly means, not by some extra-ordinary events. So the prophet does succeed in bringing together such a small, but united, unified, steadfast and patient group in the first place. He does this by reciting the Quranic verses to them: “You shall invite to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and with kindly exhortation…”( Sura 16, Aya 125.). God tells His prophet to exploit God’s words and revelations and find ways into the hearts and souls of people around him in this way.
Thus the Prophets manage to gather a group around them, of the most faithful, the most firm and the most unshakable, of the kind described in the Hadeeth: ‘those who will never be shaken by the blamers’(Nahj-Al-Balagha - Sermon 192) ; that is, those who never tremble at the accusations and allegations of disbelievers and will steadfastly continue walking on the path of God. These are the first and foremost Muslims.
Now do we have a name for this unbreakable, firm rope in the Quran and Islamic tradition? Yes, we do have a name for this; it is called👉 "Wilayat".
