President Aliyev Presents Holy Quran from Mecca to Aghdam Mosque
During his visit to Aghdam city, recently liberated from Armenian occupation after 27 years, President Aliyev presented a Holy Quran he brought from Mecca to the Aghdam mosque, according to ‘Azerbaijan in Focus’, reporting Trend News.
He commented: “Today, I presented the Holy Quran I brought from Mecca to the Aghdam mosque. I am happy to have visited Mecca four times, once with my late father, and three times as President. I am happy that I prayed with my family inside the Holy Kaaba. I have the same feelings in my heart as everyone else. My first prayer was for the liberation of our lands from occupation. I asked God to give me the strength to liberate our lands from the occupiers, to give us this happiness and return the land of our ancestors.
“Today, in front of the mosque destroyed by vandals, I am saying that I am a happy man. I thank God again for hearing my prayers and giving me this strength. We are living through these historic days, having mobilised all our forces. These are truly historic days. Perhaps there have never been such glorious and proud days in the centuries-old history of Azerbaijan. We have achieved this thanks to our unity and our strength. Nobody helped us. On the contrary, they only wanted to hamper us. I will talk about this in detail one day.”
