A senior Iranian cleric has warned against division between the country’s religious and political groups, stressing the significance of solidarity among Muslims.
“The difference in human society must be limited to certain factors such as race, language, countries and borders and everyone must be united in action and ideology,” IRNA quoted Tehran’s interim Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani as saying.
Ayatollah Kashani warned against bickering and conflict among politicians and religious leaders, saying it will only harm the nation.
The cleric hailed a recent trip by Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Seyyed Ali Khamenei to the shrine city of Qom as having had “valuable effects for the seminary and people all over the country.”
“The visit showed that government, politics, ethics, religion and law… are impossible unless [they are] in the cradle of revelation,” he said.
“This conception that jurisprudence and its practice, justice and ideology were initiated in our country (Iran) by the founder of the Islamic revolution [Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Rouhollah Khomeini] and that the Islam is advancing forward has engulfed the world,” Ayatollah Kashani stated.
The prominent cleric called on Muslim leaders to put aside their differences and unite against the enemies.
“The future is that of Islam and it will overtake the world,” he vowed.
