Supreme Leader: Women's Day best opportunity to examine their status

Tehran, July 27, IRNA

The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei here Wednesday said that naming the birth anniversary of Hazrat Fatemeh (SA) as Woman's and Mother's Day provides the opportunity to examine their high status in Islam.

Speaking at a ceremony marking Woman's Day, the Supreme Leader referred to the misunderstandings in this respect and reiterated the need for recalling the true value of women and the respect they deserve in Islam.

The auspicious birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad's (PBUH) daughter, Hazrat Fatemeh Zahra (SA), and that of the founder of the Islamic Republic, the late Imam Khomeini, was celebrated in a ceremony on Wednesday morning.

During the ceremony, which was attended by a number of lovers of the infallible household of Prophet Mohammad (PBUP), selected panegyrists and poets eulogized the holy lady of Islam (Fatemeh SA).

Turning to the sensitive, lasting, delicate and effective role of women in the human history, Ayatollah Khamenei accused the Western civilization of either treachery against women and undermining their genuine status in the course of history, within the community and family or totally ignoring them under the pretext of supporting them.

"Thus by overlooking their true rights, the family as the foundation of the community is undermined, which in turn endangers the future generations and eventually results in the collapse of civilization," added the Supreme Leader.

"The respect paid to women's role in family by Islam does not at all mean that they are denied their rights for participating in social activities.

"However, this is misinterpreted by some people who assume that according to Islam, women should either be good mothers and wives or take part in social activities.

"But Fatemeh (SA) was not only the symbol of an exemplary wife and mother, but was at the same time quite actively involved in social affairs," said Ayatollah Khamenei.
