U.S. will receive the worst defeat in its history from Iran

In the present time, for some European countries, the ban to buy oil has been lifted by the US, but they are not buying. Well, this is enmity. There is no other interpretation to it, but this is a specific kind of enmity. They have deployed their forces to a maximum level.

The Americans have repeatedly said that their sanctions against Iran are the harshest and most severe in history. They are right. I too once said in one of my speeches that the defeat that the US will suffer in this regard will be the harshest in history, God willing. This will happen if we show determination and move in the right direction, God willing. Therefore, it is necessary to deploy all forces and resources. In the face of a maximum invasion, a maximum deployment of forces is necessary. This is one point.

The second point is that the basis of our work is divine dhikr [remembrance of God]: “Slacken not, either of you, in keeping Me in remembrance” [The Holy Quran, 20: 42]. Allah the Exalted said to Musa and to Harun – while they were in a delicate situation: they were two individuals who were going to face a strong and dominant power like the Pharaoh who had many resources at his disposal: “Slacken not, either of you, in keeping Me in remembrance.” He said many times, “Fear not, for I am with you: I hear and see everything” [The Holy Quran, 20: 46]. He promised that He would help and support them, but He also mentioned that “Slacken not, either of you, in keeping Me in remembrance.”

Divine dhikr is the main ingredient for all the capabilities that I enumerated. I mentioned that those capabilities should be utilized and divine dhikr is the main ingredient for all of them.

I hope that Allah the Exalted will bestow on you and me the blessing to engage in dhikr and to pay attention to Him, God willing. I hope that He will shortly fulfil the promise that He made to this nation and this Ummah, God willing.
