As we respond to the Almighty’s saying, “And let there be a nation among you that invites to good, commands what is right and forbids what is wrong, and these are the successful ones.” (Al Imran: 104)

He said: “The joint efforts to serve and work in the public field to achieve achievements that benefit people, impose on us the obligations of sincere dedication and a sense of responsibility to preserve the essence of the exalted doctrines, and we are sure that what hinders the will of the good is to cling to preconceived ideas and narrow interests, and trust in Nervous selfishness and isolation, indifference to the reality of fragmentation, and surrender to the status quo that factors the creates division and alienation in our monotheistic and national Islamic heritage.

A long-awaited state. And let the president sacrifice to the president, the minister, the deputy and every incumbent in this country something of what they desire and fight for it to ensure a health, educational, housing or living need for people on the fringes of the abyss, and some senior people do not care. And let us all sacrifice everything that harms Lebanon’s good relations with its Arab brothers and with its friends in the region and the world.

He continued, “The responsibility for the economic decline and general collapse lies with the people of power and authority who have brought the country to what it has achieved, and those who continue to hinder the reform process and facilitate the order of the state, and who impossible conditions before the formation of the government, and who fall asleep with their eyes full or in a deep slumber. want, and as an inevitable option, in a described theft of their money, and state institutions delay and lock their doors and services in the face of their seekers and are unable to face crises and solve citizens’ problems “a threat to the future of the state and the people’s confidence in the homeland.”

It deserves loyalty and deserves sacrifice to save it from an existential danger that threatens its future. The real change our youth hope for is through reform and salvation of what remains of institutions and moral and national values, and not through destruction of it. what’s left.

Abi Al-Muna said: “The Great Oath means to return to the self, to review it, to question it and to promote its living forces, so perhaps we realize its meaning and strive to achieve it, and may the festival carry hope in its folds, and that these blessed days carry the goodness of all Lebanese, Arabs, and Muslims in its folds, as they revise themselves. they spoiled, and they rushed together to establish their common life and their hoped solidarity for the preservation of their homeland and the preservation of their nation.
