Workers of the steel plant of Isfahan
جلد ۱۲ صحیفه امام خمینی (ره)، از صفحه ۱ تا صفحه ۳
In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Falling down on the job and laxity is anti-revolutionary
First, I would like to thank you for taking the trouble to come over here in this cold weather. We had already announced and asked you not to undergo the trouble for the time being untill the weather becomes good. If God had given us another opportunity, you could have come then. I am thankful to all of you- youths; and pray for you. You know those who do not want this campaign to yield fruit cause division among the various classes of the masses by their different devices and forms. The thing that I want to bring forward is the issue of falling down on the job and lack of hard work in the offices and plants, particularly those having immediate bearing upon the life of a country like the steel plant run by you or the oil industry. The enemies mostly desire to gain influence in such places. They want to paralyze the organizations, whatever and whichever that happens to yield wider services to the nation so that calm and quiet attitude may not come into being. As such, the government could not attain stability. Today, anti-revolutionaries are those who in their respective jobs do not perform their duties and remain idle or persuade others to be idle. This is a blow to their country. This is what the enemy wants too. The stoppage of work instead of its progress is their aspiration. They even go amidst the farmers and under various reasons prevent them from farming. However, they try to bring idleness among you so as to create shortage of work or strikes or roaming about in the streets and such similar issues. Therefore, you should be advertent and be at your guard because all this is a plot designed by those to whom your unity has had been hazardous and Islam itself an unfavorable element.
Work if for the sake of God is a kind of worship
If a nation wants to remain safe from any evil or injury, it should get united first. Secondly, whatever job it is engaged in- should be carried out

well. Today the country needs hard work. A country, which is poor, everything in it is plundered, and you too do not want to be in need of the foreigners, in need of your enemies; so you should work. You, engaged in the steel plant, may be blessed by God to perform work. Let it be for the sake of God, and do work. It is a kind of worship. Those who are occupied in farming, they too should work so that we become self-sufficient in our food. It is shameful to reach out our hand towards America to give us food. We should be serious. God has granted us land and also water. Heavenly blessings too we are not short of. We should work so as to be self-sufficient. God willing, we may even export the excess. You, brother! Now the work is your worship. You have come over here to Qum «1» for the pilgrimage of Ma'soumah, peace of God be upon her, because it is worth no less than worship. Likewise, to perform a job too is no less than worship. Perhaps it might be even more than many of the good things and the preferred ones.
To create division and disappointment- A tactic of the enemies
You should be careful that through these methods such as division, disappointment, and goofing off enemies want to attain a result. These are the things they have well calculated there. They want to implement them in our country. So you hear the echo of the clamor from here and there. This clamor is the same that comes out from the stranger's throats. Some inside the country are their agents. You must drive them away whoever comes to you with a whisper or a wicked idea regarding these matters. Their intention is to stop you from performing your work. If there are people who do not want the work to progress, you should introduce them to the responsible people concerned so that they may be suspended from their jobs. You should help yourselves. Now the nation itself should help in all affairs. At a revolutionary time, the nation should rise up in order to accomplish the duties. If the nation pulls aside itself into a margin anticipating the government will do the things, it is wrong. The government has no such

( 1 )Since the third century AH, Qum- the burial place of Fatimah Ma`soumah( peace be upon her ), the sister of Imam Rida, the eight Imam from the Prophet's Progeny- has been a center of learning and pilgrimage. In the mid- 14 th century, the great scholar and faqih, Ayatullah Ha'iri settled in Qum and reorganized the religious teaching institution. Following Ayatullah Ha'iri, scholars from other cities came to Qum and it was not long before Qum was elevated to the status of the center of religious learning in Iran. At present thousands of students from Islamic and non-Islamic countries are studying in Qum. The students, having completed introductory courses, embark, depending on their interests, on a wide range of Islamic sciences, including jurisprudence and its principles, exegesis, kalam[ scholasticism ]philosophy, mysticism, history, and hadith.

power to perform the things all by itself. On the revolutionary occasions all the enemies, even those who once were thieves and now their means are cut off, engage in a plot. It will not be possible for a group or a class to do the work. Therefore, it depends upon the nation to be serious about its own affairs. It should trust in God and go ahead with its responsibilities. May God bestow upon you victory and prosperity. I thank you all who have come over here from all directions. I pray for all of you and I am a servant to you all.
May God's peace, mercy and blessings be upon you.
