Baku, Azerbaijan, May 14
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called on clergymen to actively confront the society's doubts over religious issues.
Political incentives and virtual network help cast the doubts over religion, Khamenei told a group of authorities, teachers and students of Tehran province's religious seminaries May 14, the Iranian leader's official website reported.
Saying that jihad is not only about "wielding a sword", Khamenei noted that confronting the doubts is the greatest jihad.
"Get prepared for this type of jihad," he added.
He further said that clergymen have three main duties: "spiritual and intellectual guidance," "political guidance", as well as "social services, aid and sympathy for people."
