His Excellency Hujjat al-Islam wal-Muslimin Mr. Rouhullah Khatami, may his blessings last long,
Following the heart-rending martyrdom of the third martyr of altar, the dear Sadouqi, and consensus of the `ulama' in Yazd and on account of yourpopularity among the esteemed residents of this city, you who are known for being knowledgeable and pious are hereby appointed as my representative and Friday prayer leader of Yazd. God willing, beside fulfillment of this great duty, you will acquaint the people with their duties towards dear Islam and Muslims and the sanguinary and solid revolution of the noble people of Iran. I hope you will act resolutely in settling affairs and attending to the needs of people. It is hoped that the respected and religious people of Yazd, particularly the prominent `ulama' and revolutionary organizations, will take the opportunity and make the necessary cooperation in ever more glorious performance of the unity-nurturing and enemy-shattering Friday prayer. I implore God Almighty to grant success to you all. May God's peace, mercy and blessings be upon you!
