In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
I congratulate everyone on the occasion of the Week of Basij, Mobilization Resistance Force, and especially the new, vibrant members of the Mobilized Forces who, like their predecessors, are the favorite students of our late, magnanimous Imam Khomeini.
My dear ones, truly appreciate your present status and know that with your hard work, the light of wisdom, sound judgement and trust in the All-knowing and Almighty God you will be able to play an effective, useful role in all the general issues of the country. The Iranian nation has experienced this over the last several decades.
May God’s greetings and mercy be upon you.
