✅In the name of Allah
#Willayat(The lecture of Ayatollah Khamenei in Ramadan of 1394 in Mashhad): We present you it's summary: 👇👇👇
✅Mumtahina Sura is of utmost importance; it does not say that you should not cooperate or be friends with all disbelievers, that you should have no relationships and that you should cut all ties with them. The other verses in the same Sura clearly tell us what groups of disbelievers are your stubborn enemies. But now let us continue reading the first 4 verses of this Sura. “…do you then extend secret affection to them as friendly companions?! And I do know well what you conceal and that you reveal; and whosoever of you may do this, will surely stray from the right way.” God says that if you maintain open or secret contact or companionship with those who oppose the Truth revealed to you and show enmity to you and the Messenger, you should realize that I know about it all, and that anyone among you who does this is surely astray from the right path. And then God does introduce such opponents.
Well, the commentators say that this verse is about this kind of dubious thinking. It does explain that they are your ideological enemies, they are people who aim at destroying you and your religion and that they will never be kind to you.
The next verse in this Sura makes the point absolutely clear: “if they gain the upper hand over you, you’ll find that they are foemen…”. This is like saying: You foolish Haatib, don’t be mistaken in thinking that they will reciprocate your affection if they win the battle; they will treat you most ruthlessly. The verse goes on: “…they shall unleash their hands and tongues to do you evil wrongs, and they will keenly crave that you may disbelieve…”. This means that if they defeat you, they won’t allow you to be believers even only in your hearts, no, you’ll have to become pagans and infidels just like them.(Be continued)
