The Iranian Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, addressing participants in Tehran’s 28th International Holy Quran Contests, said on Tuesday that the revolutions and popular uprisings sweeping the Middle East and North Africa show that God definitely fulfills His promises. He further emphasized that the regional nations’ uprisings are a “clear indication of the fact that Allah’s promises mentioned in the Holy Quran are definitely materialized.”
Khamenei then declared the Holy Quran as “the most important means and factor of unity, honor and dignity, and power for the Islamic Ummah (community), adding that lack of belief in Quranic concepts and divine promises “has practically prevented unity, honor and dignity, power and mightiness of the Islamic Ummah.”
Then on Wednesday, July 6th, the Iranian Supreme Leader’s Advisor for Military Affairs, Major General Yahya Rahim Safavi, the ex-chief commander of the Guards, stated that the Muslim states’ main share in control over the world’s vital energy corridors has provided Islamic nations with an excellent chance to control the world economy. He reminded the Islamic nations that their rich energy resources are their source of power, giving Muslims the capability to control the world economy.
