The leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, described unity among Muslims as a “definitive Quranic duty”, saying it is nothing “tactical”, which can happen occasionally, but a “Necessity” for Muslims.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks during a meeting with Iranian officials and guests of the 35th International Conference on Islamic Unity in Tehran on Sunday, on the anniversary of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the sixth Shiite imam, Imam Ja’afar Sadiq. (LIKE).
“The unity of Muslims is not a tactical issue so that some think that” we [should] stay united with each other due to special circumstances. No, this is a fundamental question, ”said the chef. “Synergy between Muslims is a necessity. If Muslims are united, they will create synergy, they will all become strong. Muslim unity is a definitive Koranic duty.
Ayatollah Khamenei has declared that the birth of the Prophet Muhammad “marks the beginning of a new era in human life. It announces the beginning of a new era of divine will and divine grace for humanity.
Palestine: Islamic Unity Index
The leader stressed that the main clue of Muslim unity is the question of Palestine.
“If Muslim unity is achieved, the Palestinian issue will be definitely resolved in the best possible way. The more seriously we take the Palestinian issue in order to defend the rights of the Palestinian nation, the closer we are to the unity of Muslims, ”he said.
Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to the recent normalization of relations between Israel and some Arab countries and said: “Unfortunately, some governments have made a mistake – a big mistake and a sin – and have normalized [ties] with the usurping and oppressive Zionist regime. It is a movement against Islamic unity. They have to come back from this path. They have to make up for this big mistake.
“Enemies are trying to sow discord between Muslims”
The leader said the reason the Islamic Republic has placed emphasis on Muslim unity is that “today there are constant attempts to drive a wedge between Muslim sects, between Shiites and Sunnis. “.
“You see that the question of being Sunni or Shiite has entered American political rhetoric for several years. Although they are against Islam itself and enemies, they are not abandoning the issue of Shiites and Sunnis, ”he added.
“You also see that American puppets create sedition wherever they can in the Islamic world,” said the leader, citing the recent bloody attacks on mosques in Afghanistan as an example.
“That explodes [mosques]? Daesh. Who is Daesh? Daesh is the same group that the Americans – the same Democratic group in the United States – have explicitly claimed to have created. However, they do not say such a thing now and deny it. “
A complete religion
Ayatollah Khamenei has declared Islam to be a “global religion. Justice must be done to this comprehensiveness.
“Materialist political powers insist on confining Islam to personal commitment and spiritual beliefs. Such an attempt has been underway for a long time and has intensified since the establishment of the Islamic Republic ”more than four decades ago, the leader said.
However, what Islam advocates is that this religion should play a role in all areas of human life, from spiritual beliefs to social, political, international aspects or anything else related to humanity, to Ayatollah Khamenei explained.
