Message of Ayatollah Hadavi Tehrani condemning anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims”

Sunday, 16 September 2012 10:08

In the Name of God, the Compassionate the Merciful

We are from Allah and to Him we shall return.


Once again the hatred of bat-like and blind-hearted enemies of Islam came out of  the sleeves of cunning  fox-like imposters insulting in the most obscene and shameful way the Last of Prophets – peace be upon him and his family – whom God, the Glorified, sent as a blessing to all humanity and about whom God, the Exalted, said: “We sent thee not, but as a Mercy to the worlds” [21:107][1] He who is the best model for all those who have a hope in God and in the Day of Judgment: “Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah” [33:21][2] The Prophet who had the most outstanding moral character and indisposition: “And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character” [68:4][3] he who, even before his appointment to prophetic mission, was known as “Ameen” (the honest) was, because of his virtues and excellence, denigrated by those whom God considered to be the biggest enemies of believers: “Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews.”[5:82][4]

The obscene and denigrating film produced by Sam Becile and titled “Innocence of Muslims” echoes, from its dirty and ugly backstage, the Zionists clenching their teeth out of anger and hatred towards Islam’s success all over the world; it is yet another conspiracy hatched against Islam and lofty values in the world; an insult which no man of sound conscience accepts to be directed towards any men of dignity and virtue let alone the Messenger of Allah – peace and benedictions of Allah be upon him – who is at the peak of values and dignity.

Without doubt, all religious leaders’ particularly Muslim scholars in the world are expected to denounce this action with one voice and to show their hatred to it which is a threat to morality and spirituality across the world. The Muslim Ummah and all those with awakened conscience should take to the streets to denounce this sacrilegious act and declare their hatred of the enemies of humanity in the media.

If the American judicial system and those of the entire world have religious or human conscience, they should condemn in the strongest terms all those who have been involved in producing this film. If the White House officials have any respect for humanity, they should bring these criminals to justice.

I extend, with lots of tears and grief, my condolences to the Imam of Age, Imam Mahdi (may Allah hasten his reappearance) and to the entire Muslims of the world, the conscious ones and those seeking the next world on this sad event invoking and praying the One God, the Eternal for the victory of Islam and prevalence of lofty human values throughout the world. Indeed, Allah is the best Helper.

Peace be upon the messengers and the pious servants of God

Mahdi Hadavi Tehrani
