Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil


o Enjoining others to do good and forbidding evil is incumbent on the entire


o Promoting the truth which is the same as enjoining good and forbidding

      evil is an incumbent duty on all Muslims.

o If a cruel ruler dominates the people, the 'ulamd' of the nation and the

      scholars of the nation must take action to forbid evil.

o You and we are all obliged to enjoin good in all matters and affairs

     relating to the various bureaus, offices or departments of public

     administration, and if we see someone who does evil, introduce him to the

authorities who are prepared to prevent evil and we ought to tolerate the difficulties.

o If you do not control corruption, there is no guarantee that things will not

     revert to the former conditions.

o If things detrimental to the prestige of the Islamic Republic, or opposed to

      the path of the nation or interdicted by religion are not absolutely stopped,

      everybody will be held responsible.
