The Rahbar’s Message to Hajj Pilgrims

Sayyid Ali Khamenei

Dhu al-Hijjah 04, 14372016-09-06

In his annual Hajj message to pilgrims this year, the Rahbar, Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei was very forthright about the culpability of the Saudi regime in the crush at Mina that killed more than 4700 pilgrims. He called for taking control of Hajj affairs away from the Saudis who have shown total disregard for the hujjaj's safety and the sanctity of the Haram.

Sayyid Ali Khamenei

Safar 19, 14372015-12-01

Self-reform and the reform of the Ummah are duties of the Hajj

Sayyid Ali Khamenei

Dhu al-Hijjah 16, 14332012-11-01

Every year the Rahbar, as leader of the Islamic Revolution, delivers his message to the hujjaj in Makkah. This year, his message has particular resonance because of the Islamic awakenings sweeping the Muslim East and attempts by Islam’s enemies to subvert these noble efforts by entangling them in petty squabbles. He describes Hajj as a process of self-reform and an opportunity to reform the Ummah.

The 20-day perseverance that you, the courageous resistance fighters and the people of Ghazzah demonstrated against one of the most atrocious war crimes in the history of the world has hoisted the flag of glory over the head of the Islamic Ummah. You have proven that Muslim hearts filled with confidence in Allah, glorified be His name, and the Day of Judgment, which will not bow to oppression, can create such heroism that will bring the arrogant powers of the world and their well-equipped armies to their knees.
