AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): The Syrian grand Mufti, Sheikh Badreddin Hassoun, speaking at the webinar of the 35th Islamic Unity Conference said unity should not be limited only to Muslim religious leaders but should involve the entire Muslim Ummah.
Sheikh Hassoun said Iran is holding Islamic Unity Conference for many years adding that the late Imam Khomeini (RA) and after him, Ayatollah Khamenei has worked for realization of unity among the ranks of Islamic Ummah.
He went on saying that enemies of the Islamic Revolution from the outset of the victory of the revolution up to now have constantly tried to distort the image of the Islamic Revolution and the path it has taken. They tried to depict the Islamic Revolution as a racist and ethnic movement aimed at causing division among Muslims. But the children of the Islamic Revolution thwarted all these plots and revealed whatever lies had been told about the Islamic Revolution.
The top Syrian cleric added that the enemies have waged a war in Yemen and the Levant (Syria) which is a pillar of Islam. They kindle the flame of war and seat back and lough. Why is so? It's because we Muslims do not act upon Islamic teachings.
Sheikh Badreddin said we attach great hope to the Islamic Unity Conference and we should be more vigilant about those who have penetrated into the ranks of Muslim Ummah and be aware that they are not part of Islamic Ummah because they kill their Muslim brothers in the name of Islam.
He thanked Iranians and the Supreme Leader for campaigning against the Zionist regime and supporting the Palestinian cause and liberation of Palestine.
Sheikh Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun made the comments in an address to the 35th International Islamic Unity Conference held on Sunday.
The 35th edition of Islamic Unity Conference was held in the capital Tehran on October 19-24 mainly in virtual meetings of Muslim scholars, intellectuals and thinkers from across the globe. The theme for Islamic Unity Conference 2021 was "Islamic Unity, Peace and Avoidance of Division and Conflict in the World of Islam."
