The Islamic Republic has demystified the notion of conflict between religion and politics
The leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, said that a great achievement of the Islamic Republic has been the invalidation of the core identity of Western civilization, namely “the separation of religion from politics”.
“With the motto of religion, the Islamic Republic not only preserved itself, but also, through the development of Iran, challenged the long-term efforts of Western countries to prove that religion is incompatible with politics. “, he said in a speech to the leaders. Friday prayers on Wednesday, leader.ir reported.
He said that the mafia of Western powers, in addition to them the Zionist regime and its capitalists whose window is the United States, are angry at this fact and are constantly plotting to harm the Islamic Republic.
Ayatollah Khamenei called on Friday prayer leaders to counter such continued propaganda in their sermons.
“Today’s battlefield is the field of soft power where the enemy tries to infiltrate and destroy the bastion of popular faith by creating doubt,” he said, adding that the People’s faith was the reason for the victory of the 1979 Islamic revolution, the resistance in the sacred defense of the eight-year Iran-Iraq war and against all other plots.

The leader also advised Friday Paymaster speakers to adopt an appropriate lifestyle and act like they preach in their sermons.

Friday prayer leaders should also treat people like a father, be present among the public, have close ties with young people, contribute to public services such as helping people in the event of natural disasters and avoid s engaging in economic activities, according to Ayatollah Khamenei.
Their sermons should also be educational and contain answers to questions from the audience, he said.
“Addresses should be friendly, promising, unifying and soothing, and not in such a way as to set the stage for propaganda, create anxiety and pessimism about current and future conditions and provide enemies with a tool to launch a offensive.”
