(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Ahlul Bayt World Assembly has issued a statement on threshold of International Quds day.
The full text of the statement is as follows:
In the Name of Almighty Allah
And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion.
Say, "Indeed, the guidance of Allah is the [only] guidance."
(The Holy Quran: Surah al-Baqara: verse 120)
As you know, we are approaching the very last Friday of holy Ramadan which was named as the Jerusalem (Quds) Day by the great architect of the Islamic revolution and the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Imam Khomeini (may Allah bless his soul).
The Quds occasion is actually as the Night of Divine Decrees (Laylat-ul-Qadr) in the Islamic history which must be vigilantly revered by all Muslims until the dawn of victory and salvation of Muslim nations especially the brave and oppressed people of Palestine.
Through our unity and unwavering efforts, all of us must fulfil our divine and humanitarian duty in this regard to renew our allegiance to the noble cause of Palestine and the oppressed people of Gaza.
The recent developments in the Islamic world has put us in an extremely sensitive age throughout the history of Islam. On the other hand, the Zionist regime of Israel, supported by the outrageous propaganda of West's hired media, continues to settle in the occupied territories and impose constant pressure and crackdown on defenseless Palestinians to advance its oppressive goals and fuel turbulences in the region. Therefore, the unity and solidarity of Muslim nations against the conspiracies of the United States and the Zionist Regime as well as firm confrontation and condemnation of the normalization of relations with the despicable regime of Israel by Arab reactionary regimes, especially the autocratic regime of Al Saud, is an essential, vital, and inevitable task upon Muslim communities.
The Ahlulbayt World Assembly urges all Muslims, noble people of the world especially the followers of Ahlulbayt, and all its esteemed members and affiliates to undertake the following:
1. To join the impressive rallies and gatherings of International Quds Day on June 23rd as usual in order to shout at the top of their voice the fact that the followers of the late Imam Khomeini shall always remain hostile towards the ruthless enemies of Islam and will be sympathetic towards the oppressed Palestinian people and other Muslim nations in Myanmar, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria and all other oppressed people throughout the globe.
2. To strongly condemn the treacherous acts and crimes of the occupation regime of Israel through demonstrations, rallies and speeches in front of the Israeli embassies and by signing petitions and other protest activities.
3. To denounce religious conflicts as well as satanic plots of the United States, Israel, Saudi Sheikhs and their mercenaries along with ominous policies of arrogant powers and the Arab NATO in Islamic countries by writing enlightening articles and broadcasting them in mass media, websites, news agencies and social networks.
4. To voice strong protests and severe condemnations against the brutal and extremist crimes of Takfiri and Wahhabi terrorists from east to west. Such global protests shall undoubtedly land a heavy and terrible blow on the usurping regime of Israel which will teach other enemies of Islam and their cowardly allies a lesson similar to the recent destructive missiles and warning of Iran against the ISIS terrorists in Syria.
“And those who act unjustly will soon know in what final place they shall end up”
