Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei called on the Iranian university students to amass knowledge while exercising wisdom, stressing that both of those values should be associated with piety and chastity.
In a message to the 49th annual meeting of the union of the Islamic associations of Iranian students in Europe, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined that no asset will be more valuable for the country than the young students who have gained knowledge with those moral qualities.
The Leader said studying in the foreign universities provides an opportunity for the Iranian young students to take a “deep and wise” view at the world’s events and phenomena, and will also let Iran enjoy scientists with a good understanding of the world.
Ayatollah Khamenei also called on the young students to think about the reasons why the West’s policies seek to promote Islamophobia.
The message was read by the Leader’s representative for the students’ affairs, Hojjatoleslam Javad Ejei, in the Armenian capital of Yerevan on Friday.
