Ayatollah Khamenei has addressed the great congregation of Muslims that have visited Mecca for the Hajj rites, calling the Islamic nation to integrity.
"Integrity and brotherhood among the Muslim under the rubric of monotheism, knowledge of the enemy, and fighting its schemes and tricks are among the most significant lessons of the Hajj and a definite cure for the pitiable situations of the current Islamic world,” the Supreme Leader says in his letter.
He added "Domestic conflicts, blind religious prejudice, political instability, the spread of cruel terrorism, the emergence of extremist groups which in the fashion of barbaric tribes open people’s breast and bite into their hearts, gunners who kill children and women, behead men, and rape the fair sex, and even sometimes do such embarrassing, disgusting crimes in the name of religion, these are all the fruit of devilish, arrogant schemes by intelligence services that belong to the foreigners and their regional accomplice states.”
He further said "Such baleful situation can frustrate the Islamic awakening and lay waste the psychological basis that has come to exist in the Islamic world to turn the Muslim nations once more into isolation and decadence, making them forget their principal issues such as saving Palestine, and saving Muslim nations from US and Zionist schemes. The real remedy can be summarized in two key sentences, both of which are among the most prominent lessons of the Hajj: First, Muslims’ integrity and brotherhood under the rubric of monotheism; second, knowledge of the enemy and handling his schemes and tricks.”
"Takfiri entities which have now grown into a puppet for the deceitful Zionist and their Western allies to commit heinous crimes and shed the blood of innocent Muslims and those who boast of religiosity and those dressed with the robe of the clergy who blow into the furnace of Shiite-Sunni conflict must know that the Hajj in its very nature is the nullifier of their braggadocio. Like many Islamic scholars and well-intenders of the Islamic nation I once more exclaim that any action which is to blaze the fire of disagreement among Muslims or is a sacrilege to any of the holy beings of Muslim groups or any of the Islamic sects is considered as a service to the atheist side, a kind of polytheism, betrayal to Islam, and religiously forbidden.”
