Iran top Sunni cleric, Mamousta Amin Rasti in an exclusive interview with Taqrib News Agency (TNA) urged clerics and scholars to promote their unity so as to pave the way for safeguarding this construct among people from different segments of the society.

Speaking at the side line of the first General Assembly of the Resistance Ulima Union mounted in Lebanon Capital of Beirut, Iranian religious thinker appraised the event and similar gatherings very influential and positive for enhancing solidarity among Muslims from different Islamic denominations and sects.

In his line, these meetings let Muslims gain momentum and foil Zionism’s hatched conspiracies, giving clerics this very chance to sit down for talks and open dialogue over the setbacks they are faced with.

“If Muslims get united, no one can surpass them,” said the religious cleric noting the final triumph belongs to Muslims as God pledges. As to the foresaid point, according to Islamic clerics, all Ulimas must work on the idea of the certain fact: “The end of Israel” which may raise the hope in our souls and leads the umma to a new awakening based on true hopes.

Along with Mamousta Amin Rasti, religious thinkers and elites believe annihilation of Zionim regime is a sure thing and a Quranic pledge. To them, the Palestinian cause is the main cause of all Muslims, and that Muslims must all unite to confront the Zionist danger, protect Al-Aqsa mosque, the first Kiblah (praying direction of Muslims).

The conferees emphasized the Palestinian cause “the demise of Israel, a Quranic truth and a historic certainty” in order to provide solutions and contributions that will lead to unity between Muslims, and their assembly for the sake of Palestine, and mobilize the nation to stand against Israel, while believing that victory is certain and the demise of Israel is indeed a Qur’anic truth and a Qur’anic certainty, and Right will defeat Wrong when the people who believe in right will fight for it and they fight with all their hearts. The conferees insist that their gathering be considered a voice to correct the path and redirect the Islamic Ummah to the road to dignity and greatness.
