On the threshold of the birth of God’s final messenger, the Great Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) religious clerics place much more stress on the prime importance of unity and solidarity among Muslims preparing themselves for mounting special ceremonies in the unity week.

For the past three decades Iran has invited Islamic religious leaders, Sunni and Shia from all over the globe to Tehran, to discuss unity among Muslims. The Islamic Unity conference called for greater convergence among Muslim groups.

Iran Capital City of Tehran is about to host the 30th Islamic Unity Conference during the Unity Week which is just around the corner. Needless to say, to arrive at the unwavering goals and objectives set in this arena, unity activists and religious clerics take the cognizance of Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s standpoints. His remarks and advices in this realm pave the ground for Muslims to brave the existing Problems they are mired in.

The following lines stressed by Supreme Leader which draw attentions to standing challenges of Takfiri and extrimist groups in the region aiming at Muslims unity.

“Extremist measures are adopted by the hidden hands of intelligence and security services. That is why we have constantly said that we do not consider these foolish groups – who confront the Islamic Republic in the name of Salafism, takfiri and Islam – to be our main enemy.”

(Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei’s Speech on 25th Demise Anniversary of Imam Khomeini (r.a.), 06/06/2014)

“The movement of Takfir has an Islamic cover, but in practice they serve the goals of Arrogant and political powers which are against the World of Islam,”
(Supreme Leader’s Speech in Meeting with Participants of International Congress on Takfirism, 25/11/2014)

“Today, some people in different parts of the world of Islam – which go by the name of takfiri, Wahhabi and Salafi groups – are adopting bad and inappropriate measures against Iran, Shia Muslims and Shia Islam. But everyone should know that they are not the main enemies. They show enmity and they adopt foolish measures, but the main enemy is the person who provokes them, who gives them money and who motivates them with different means when their motivation is weakened to some extent”

(Supreme Leader’s Speech in Meeting with Participants of International Congress on Takfirism, 25/11/2014)

“The frontline of Muslims’ struggles in this region was occupied Palestine, but the Takfiri movement changed this frontline and took it to streets and cities in Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, and Libya.”

(Supreme Leader’s Speech on 25th Demise Anniversary of Imam Khomeini (R.A.), 06/06/2014)

It is noteworthy that the need for Muslims to keep united is clearly underscored in holy Quran verse saying, “And hold fast by the covenant of Allah all together and be not disunited.”

Not only has the Islamic Unity Week ensured that all Muslims come together to celebrate the birth of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) over a period of a whole week together, it has also provided a shied against  those who seek to exploit their own interests by dividing and segregating Muslims into different sects. Sunni and Shia Muslims have resisted such efforts by coming together in these celebrations.

Furthermore, globally, Muslims are able to forget their differences as they acknowledge the common Prophet (PBUH) and express their love and affection for him in various manners. This allows many misconceptions to be removed as all Muslims are followers of the same Prophet (PBUH).
