Leader urges students to get ready to meet requirements of modern world

Tehran, Jan 27, IRNA – Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution urged the university students to understand the 'current developments and expectations' and 'prepare themselves' for them.

Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei made the remarks Saturday in a message to the 52nd conference of the Islamic Union Association for Iranian Students in Europe underway in an Islamic center in the Austrian capital, Vienna.

The full text of the Leader's message is as follows:

In the Name of God, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful:

Dear University Students,

The current era and its developments define certain expectations for young individuals, which did not exist or were not known in previous times.

Young university students should, thoroughly, understand these developments and the corresponding expectations, and thus prepare themselves. Islamic associations and the religious atmosphere within them can help you in preparing yourselves.

The main point is that you do your job for the sake of God and enthusiastically fulfill your duties.

If you accomplish the blessed opportunity [to do so], Divine Guidance will come to your aid, too, God willing.

I pray to God for your bliss and success.
