Bahrain’s leading Shia cleric Ayatollah Sheikh Issa Al-Qassem stressed on Tuesday that the victory is the destiny of the Islamic Ummah (nation), underlining importance of resistance and unity as key moves to overcome the Zionist regime.
“Reaching power entails unity and avoiding divisions, as well as selfless efforts and sacrifices on the right path,” Ayatollah Qassem said addressing this year’s edition of Holy Al-Quds International Congress few days before Al-Quds Day.
Noting that the Islamic organizations and righteous leaders bear the main responsibility in this path, he said, “They must liberate the Islamic Ummah and strengthen the sovereignty of the Islamic countries against oppression and tyranny.”
He underlined the need for directing all the resistance forces and organizations toward the right path, adding that “all actions must be conducted for God’s satisfaction.”
“Therefore, we must exert more effort, courage, and patience in the same vein so that we can follow this divine path,” Ayatollah Qassem noted.
Stressing that “victory is the destiny of the Islamic Ummah,” the Shia cleric concluded, “If the Muslims abandon each other and reconcile with the Zionist regime, we will not succeed because the victory of the resistance depends on the cooperation of all Muslims and the continuation of the path of jihad.”
The International Conference of the Holy Quds kicked off on Monday in the central Iranian city of Qom, in which cultural, political, and scientific figures from different countries of the world are attending via video conferencing.
The two-day conference aims at discussing the resistance movement and the fight against the occupying regime of Israel.
Al-Quds Day falls every year in the last Friday of the holy month of Ramadan. It was declared by late Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran Imam Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini as an annual day of solidarity with the Palestinian people.
