Muslim students in Europe have a great responsibility: Ayatollah Khamenei



The following is the full text of the message issued on January 20, 2017 by Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, to the participants of the 51st annual meeting of the Union of the Islamic Students Associations in Europe.





In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Dear Young Students,

Being young and being a student can each help you to reach your lofty ideals like a powerful force that drives one forward. Apart from these two, you enjoy the blessing of presence in the influential system of Islamic associations. Hujjat has been completed for you.

You dear ones are expected to do something beyond scientific, religious and moral self-edification. You are expected to influence your surrounding environment and to help- with your words and your actions- those who take the path of God to increase their understanding. This is the responsibility of all of us in the asymmetric battle between the front of kufr and arrogance, and the hoisted flag of original Islam. Each of us should be a blessed spring of correct Islamic understanding and the divine straight path.

May your pure hearts be lively, hopeful and enlightened

Sayyid Ali Khamenei
