Like every year, the AL-QUDS DAY in QOM, Iran was simply outstanding and energizing.

πŸ—£ Countless people poured out on the Shuhada Ave. that connects the Haram of Sayyida Ma’sumah (A) and the Musallah Al-Quds. For as far as one could see, it was an ocean of justice-seeking, insightful, believing men, women, youth, and children expressing their solidarity with the oppressed nation of Palestine πŸ‡΅πŸ‡Έ. Many elderly were witnessed on wheelchairs and even crutches. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ¦½πŸ‘¨β€πŸ¦― Subhan-Allah.

πŸšΆβ€β™‚οΈThis was the first-ever year where the English speaking International Students of Qom (SoQ) came together to form a rally of their own and marched towards and joined the Main Rally. A big Al-Quds Day Banner and placards in English were designed, printed, and prepared by our volunteers, especially for the Al-Quds Day Rally. The participants carried the banner and placards throughout the rally and chanted slogans in English. ✊

The local Iranian population welcomed this initiative a great deal and appreciated the strong presence of non-Iranians in the rally. Countless people expressed their gratitude towards the international students’ participation in this rally. Some of the comments we received:

✨ “The entire world should stand against Zionism. And this organized presence of the English speaking international students is simply amazing.”

✨ “Due to the international media blackout against us, we don’t get coverage. Your presence shows us that our voice is reaching outside of Iran.”

✨ “You guys show us that we are not alone in this battle against the oppressors.”

✨ “The Al-Quds Day is not specific to Iranians. You guys proved it!”

✨ “You may be a small group, but you give us hope that the message of Wilayah is being received by you as well.”

✨ “Your presence shows that the message of the Islamic Revolution is reaching far and wide.”

✨ “Your organized rally is a proof that our resistance against the arrogant powers is successful and victorious.”

Many such comments were given to us by the local Iranian crowd. Alhamdo-lillah.

We would like to thank each and every one of you who participated in this rally with SoQ volunteer families.

We were joined by a diverse crowd of English speaking students and scholars along with their families from Nigeria, Philippines, Canada, US, UK, Dubai, Tanzania, Qatar, New Zealand, Pakistan, India and English-speaking Iranians.

Thank you for showing the strength and unity. And Jazak-Allah for continuously shouting the slogans while you were in the state of fasting. Taqabbal-Allah that you worshipped during the Night of Qadr and right the next morning you joined us with all that spirituality and purity attained during the night. This is precisely the lesson we learn from Commander of the Faithful Imam Ali (A). This is what distinguishes Islamic spirituality from fake spirituality. May Allah (swt) accept your fasting and your I’badaat. Ameen.
