In another part of his remarks, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to eulogy centers and noted: "The underling point of formation of eulogy centers as a social unit was the love of the Ahl al-Bayt and keeping alive the way and school of the Imams which has been formed since the time of those nobles."

He added: "The eulogy centers should be a place of enlightenment and providing a convincing and correct answer to the current questions of the society, especially the young generation."

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution called the role and efficiency of the eulogy centers in different periods, especially during the Islamic Revolution and the holy defense, great and very effective and added: "According to the remarks of the Imams, the eulogy centers are the centers of great jihad of explanation and enlightenment."

The Leader of the Revolution considered the structure of the eulogy centers to be composed of 'logic and meaning' and 'mobility and dynamism' and noted: "The logic and bottom line of the eulogy centers is the explanation of the school and the eulogy center is an important center for explaining Islamic concepts and knowledge and answering various questions of young people about fundamental issues and lifestyle. The dynamism and mobility of the eulogy center also means the opportunity to face the audience directly and convey emotions."

The Leader called the consistency and basis of the eulogy center a category of jihad and added: "Any good and appropriate effort is not jihad. Jihad means trying to target the enemy, and the field of jihad must be correctly identified at all times."

Ayatollah Khamenei, referring to various areas of jihad in different periods such as military jihad, scientific jihad, and activities and social service, noted: "For example, social service to the people in a situation where the enemy is trying to put them against the Islamic system by creating economic pressure is a valuable jihad."

Referring to the orchestrated smear campaign of the enemies of the Iranian nation to undermine the thoughts and destroy the faith and beliefs of the people through the mass media and using thousands of art and media experts and huge financial and security support, the Leader considered the most important area of ​​jihad as "explanation and enlightenment", saying: "In the face of this evil move, the eulogy centers must ask themselves where they stand on the front of truth and falsehood, and the confrontation between the narration of falsehood and truth, and how they spread the main ideals and principles of the revolution."

The Leader of the Revolution considered 'preacher' and 'eulogist' as two important and stable pillars of the eulogy centers and emphasized the uniqueness of the art of eulogy, saying: "Eulogy imparts religious, moral, and political knowledge by influencing the heart of the audience and taking them to the depths of history."
