I also would like to offer my condolences to the entire Iranian nation, and you, gentlemen, the brave youth, on the death anniversary of the world's greatest lady. We must make a paragon of this Household. Not only should our women take example from their) Household's (women, and our men follow examples set by their men, but also everyone must emulate all of them. They dedicated their lives to supporting the oppressed and reviving the Divine tradition. We must follow suit and dedicate our lives to them. Those who know the history of Islam, know that each member of this household was like a perfect human being and even higher; That is, a divine and spiritual human being. They rose for the cause of nations and the oppressed against those who were after destroying them.

Qur'an: A book that builds man

Islam has come to save the oppressed and for building man. Islam's holy book, i. e. the illustrious Qur'an, is a book for the upbringing of man: Islam has come to promote man in all his dimensions, such as spiritual, corporeal, political, social, cultural and military aspects to show us the right path. We too must bring up our youths and women in line with Islamic teachings so that so that our women raise their children in such a way that when they grow up, they shall be productive for Islam and humanity.
