Ayatollah Khamenei Statement on US film insulting Prophet of Islam


The following is the full text of the message issued on September 13, 2012 by Ayatollah Khamenei, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution to condemn an American-made film which insults the Holy Prophet of Islam, Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family).


In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

The Mighty and Wise Allah said: “Their intention is to extinguish Allah’s Light with their mouths: But Allah will complete His Light, even though the unbelievers may detest (it).” [The Holy Quran, 61: 8]

The wicked enemies of Islam have once again revealed their deep malice by insulting the Holy Prophet (God’s greetings be upon him and his household) and in an idiotic and disgusting move, they showed that evil Zionist groups are furious at the increasing brilliance of Islam and the Holy Quran in the world today. The fact that they have made the holiest person in all of creation the target of their disgusting nonsense is enough to disgrace those who have committed this great crime and sin. What lies behind this wicked move is the hostile policies of Zionism, America and other leaders of the arrogant powers, who are vainly trying to make young generations in the Islamic world lose respect for what is held sacred and to extinguish their religious sentiments.

If they had refused to support the previous links in this evil chain – namely, Salman Rushdie, the Danish cartoonist and Quran-burning American priests – and if they had not ordered tens of anti-Islam films from the companies affiliated with Zionist capitalists, today this great and unforgivable sin would not have been committed. The number one culprit in this crime is Zionism and the American government. If American politicians are sincere that they are not involved, they should duly punish the perpetrators and the financial backers of this hideous crime, who have filled the hearts of Muslim people with pain.

And our Muslim brothers and sisters throughout the world should know that these futile and desperate moves by the enemies against Islamic Awakening are a sign of the greatness and importance of this uprising and a sign of its increasing growth.

“And Allah has full power and control over His affairs.” [The Holy Quran, 12: 21]

Sayyid Ali Khamenei

Shahrivar 23, 1391

  1. But that’s just it! In America this kind of speech, no matter how insulting it was, is protected by the 1st Amendment. We can’t allow one kind of speech and punish another. It’s either okay to speak or it’s not if the law is to remain objective.

    You want punishment, but no laws were broken.

    What’s very sad to me is how people in Libya, Egypt, Yemen, etc want to kill a whole nation full of people who had nothing to do with this video. I didn’t make it and my beliefs are not echoed by it. But because of where my house is located at people want me to die?

    Please explain to me why this is okay!

  2. Hi Gary, I totally understand where you’re coming from. Honestly! I am a muslim and I live in America so I fall in the same category you come from. You want an explanation of why people want to kill us just because we live in a Country that other’s hate? Here is the explanation, the people in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Jerusalem, Libya, Egypt, Yemen, Vietnam, Bosnia, Somali have really done nothing wrong either, why are their homes being targeted. Why are those kids made orphans, Why are their women raped, Why are their husbands, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends killed? The US officially or Unofficially. Allegedly or definitely. In some way or another is linked to anything or everything that happens in the world.

    Us Americans are always ready to point fingers at the muslim world about anything that goes wrong in our country. Have we ever looked back and reflected on what we are doing to them?

    Just because some extremists feel the need to take things into their own hands, we blame the whole muslim nation. How comes Americans are not known as terrorists and the muslims are? Which country is living in peace and which is not?

    Now you explain to me why this is okay!

  3. those who not respect for religion and for prophets thay are not humen thay r animal just eat and sleeping and thay live for luxuary well god prophet have no meaning god is creator and muhammad pbuh is messanger who told and giv us way to live life i not said to muslim become a extreamist but wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up

  4. Re Sajida- Two wrongs don’t make a right. Especially when the party making the second wrong considers itself to be rightly guided. It just infuriates people perhaps (and rightly so) more than the first wrong- which as you said was the American totalitarian approach to the Islamic world. Ali Khamenei should be setting an example. Not repeating the mistakes of the Americans.

  6. Hope for Salam

    Am going to translate what syster Zahra(HA) said above in Persian;)

    “Islam is much more greater than these kinds of stuff, that with only one paganlike movie gets questioned; Me that is 17 years old know this akh to those that are in ignorant sleepness and don’t get these plots(by enemy)”

    Almost 99% right(translation that this writer did)! Let me ad a little more according to Holy Quran those are ignorant that don’t use their reflection. Don’t learn religion through intellectualism(Aql varzi)!

  9. It was a disgusting film indeed, made by a misguided Coptic Christian whom I doubt had little backing by Zionists. In many western countries such as Canada there are laws inhibiting misdirected ‘free speech’ whose sole purpose is to incite hatred against other ethnicities. America should consider such enlightened legislation.
