“Praising Patience before Rights” in the 54th Issue of Kheradname-ye Sadra                   15.04.2009


The newest issue of the scientific-research Quarterly of Kheradname-ye Sadra in the field of Islamic philosophy was published. The Editor-in-Chief of this Journal is Professor Seyyed Mohammed Khamenei.

Like the previous issues, this issue of Kheradname-ye Sadra involves a number of invaluable specialized papers in the fields of wisdom and philosophy by the distinguished masters and professors of the country.

We read in the editorial of the Quarterly, ‘rights’ and ‘patience’ are two sides of the same coin, and that is why they create values with and alongside each other. If there is no patience, i.e. persistence and assistance, beside the rights and the rightful, the light of rights will gradually lose its brightness and will be extinguished in no time in the storm of events.

Therefore, there is a reason that the noble Qur’an recommends people to have patience and seek their rights in al-‘Asr Chapter, and Almighty has sworn to al-‘Asr (the time of humanity) for this truth.

In the rest of the editorial, Professor Khamenei, the President of the Sadra Islamic Philosophy Institute, by praising the Muslims who have chosen patience against the army of ignorance and cruelty in today’s Qaza, maintains that this human disaster is no accident and a sign of the work of the delicate fingers of fate on the face of history.

The President of the Sadra Islamic Philosophy Institute reminds that human rights obtain their firmness from wisdom, and as long as God and His promise are the truth, the rights will survive, provided that patience, i.e. persistence and courage accompany them. He also adds that those who deny the truth and people’s rights will have no place better than the garbage can of history, and patience will prove this truth.
