|President Rouhani honors Quran activists||
The ceremony took place in the Sacred Defense Garden Museum, where the 22nd International Holy Quran Exhibition is underway, Persian media reported on Sunday.
Speaking at the ceremony, Rouhani called the Quran the major factor for the unity of the Muslims, and said that the life, manner and morality of the Prophet Muhammad (S) and his Household (AS) are the best examples of this unity.
The Quran is the path of salvation for all Muslims and God has shown us His Grace by revealing such a Holy Book, he added.
Rouhani expressed his gratitude to all the Quran activists who are striving to guide individuals, and said, “One of the great achievements of the Islamic Revolution is the closeness of our youth and their families with the Quran. The encouragements of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, have smoothed the path for the Quran activists”.
