The life of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

This is how Ayatollah Ali Khamenei became the single most powerful person in Iran.

Who is really Ali Khamenei, the supreme guide of Iran?

He is one of the most powerful religious leaders in the world, but his private life remains very secret. This is the story of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is one of the most feared religious leaders in the world. At 80, the supreme leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran keeps his private life secret. Here is what is known about one of the oldest serving religious leaders in the world.

Very young, they follow religious studies

Ali Khamenei was born in 1939 in Mashhad, the holiest city in Iran. He is the second child in a family of eight and grew up in a poor family. At 11, he followed in his father's footsteps and became a religious scholar. He then went to Qom, a holy Shiite city, to study Sharia law. At the time, Iran was a secular monarchy ruled by shah. He was only about 20 years old when he came under the tutelage of Ruhollah Khomeyni, a charismatic clerk who preaches religious conservatism and opposes shah. Ruhollah Khomeyni and his disciples criticize the head of state for his pro-American policy aimed at imposing Islamic law.

Opposition claimed to shah

In 1963, the shah exiled Ruhollah Khomeyni, and Ali Khamenei continued to spread his teachings. Ali Khamenei is repeatedly arrested, tortured and placed in solitary confinement. During the 1960s and 1970s, the opposition movement grew, leading to a popular uprising that overthrew the shah. In 1979, Ruhollah Khomeyni returned and became Supreme Guide to a new Islamic republic. Ruhollah Khomeyni invites Ali Khamenei to integrate his new government and names him imam of the big Friday prayer in Tehran. At 42, he gives a speech in a mosque when a bomb explodes next to him, paralyzing his right hand for the rest of his life.

President, then Supreme Guide

In 1981, he became president of Iran, a position which gave him little real power. In 1989, when Ruhollah Khomeyni died, Ali Khamenei was considered to be his successor. At 49, he was therefore elected Supreme Leader, which gave him direct control over the army, the justice system and the public media. It also has partial control over parliament, elections and public enterprises. He spreads his influence by strengthening the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, whose scarf he wears. It also develops the country's nuclear program by encouraging distrust of Western countries. He describes in particular the United States of Britain as evil, as a cursed regime and as cancer represented by the Zionist regime.

A dictator?

But in 2009, reformist politician Mir Hossein Moussavi, who claimed victory in the presidential election, called on his supporters to take to the streets. This uprising is known as the “green movement”. However, the authorities refused Moussavi's victory, and the police brutally ended the protests. Today, at more than 80 years old, he partially controls the country's politics. His detractors call him a dictator, unlike the shah he overthrew. Despite his fame, to this day, American officials continue to confuse him with his predecessor.

    He uses religion to achieve his own evil agenda. The Iranian people have been suffering for too long because of a small minority in the country. One day the Persian people will retake their country and put this monsters in jail.

Thy untruth humen are attacked by coronavirous Or any other worst undetactable deathy virouses; This will be the Almighty most powerful only truth Allah’s education to worst natured eated unholly humen. Holy Quran Sura 5:Ayat-3 ------------------ حُرِّمَتْ عَلَيْكُمُ الْمَيْتَةُ وَالدَّمُ وَلَحْمُ الْخِنزِيرِ وَمَا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِهِ وَالْمُنْخَنِقَةُ وَالْمَوْقُوذَةُ وَالْمُتَرَدِّيَةُ وَالنَّطِيحَةُ وَمَا أَكَلَ السَّبُعُ إِلَّا مَا ذَكَّيْتُمْ وَمَا ذُبِحَ عَلَى النُّصُبِ وَأَن تَسْتَقْسِمُوا بِالْأَزْلَامِ ۚ ذَٰلِكُمْ فِسْقٌ ۗ الْيَوْمَ يَئِسَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِن دِينِكُمْ فَلَا تَخْشَوْهُمْ وَاخْشَوْنِ ۚ الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا ۚ فَمَنِ اضْطُرَّ فِي مَخْمَصَةٍ غَيْرَ مُتَجَانِفٍ لِّإِثْمٍ ۙ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ Prohibited to you are dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah, and [those animals] killed by strangling or by a violent blow or by a head-long fall or by the goring of horns, and those from which a wild animal has eaten, except what you [are able to] slaughter [before its death], and those which are sacrificed on stone altars, and [prohibited is] that you seek decision through divining arrows. That is grave disobedience. This day those who disbelieve have despaired of [defeating] your religion; so fear them not, but fear Me. This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion. But whoever is forced by severe hunger with no inclination to sin - then indeed, Allah is Forgiving and Merciful. Holy Quran 5:90 ------------------ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنَّمَا الْخَمْرُ وَالْمَيْسِرُ وَالْأَنصَابُ وَالْأَزْلَامُ رِجْسٌ مِّنْ عَمَلِ الشَّيْطَانِ فَاجْتَنِبُوهُ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ O you who have believed, indeed, intoxicants, gambling, [sacrificing on] stone alters [to other than Allah], and divining arrows are but defilement from the work of Satan, so avoid it that you may be successful. Holy Quran 5:91 ------------------ إِنَّمَا يُرِيدُ الشَّيْطَانُ أَن يُوقِعَ بَيْنَكُمُ الْعَدَاوَةَ وَالْبَغْضَاءَ فِي الْخَمْرِ وَالْمَيْسِرِ وَيَصُدَّكُمْ عَن ذِكْرِ اللَّهِ وَعَنِ الصَّلَاةِ ۖ فَهَلْ أَنتُم مُّنتَهُونَ Satan only wants to cause between you animosity and hatred through intoxicants and gambling and to avert you from the remembrance of Allah and from prayer. So will you not desist? So, I therefore, request all of you or all honest Truth paradise humen to kindly thought about almighty only Allah’s Truth halal, take real most truth education how to lead lives in earth & acceptance of Truth religion of Quran (legalized by Holy Quran) food’s or of real religious virtues. Unholly muslim’s may be affected by that deadly virous, Almighty gift us hidaya!!! Engineer Rasheed. Dhaka, Bangladesh.
