Grand Ayatollah Abdullah Javadi Amoli, met with a group of Islamic proximity activists from UK counting holy Qur’an as the most important factor for Islamic proximity and said God Almighty sent Qur’an for Muslims to keep hold of the holy book and ascend, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
He assimilated Qur’an to the holy rope (And hold firmly to the rope of Allah- verse 103 Al ‘Imran) which is attached to God and both saves human, once held firmly, and paves the grounds for ascendance.
The cleric stressed,” Holding the holy rope of Allah not only liberates us from any bending for foreign countries but also makes others to be dependent on us.”
Ayatollah Javadi Amoli said all Muslims are called to nearness and unity and this unity is feasible only by nearness to God Almighty.
Top Shia jurisprudent concluded that the only way to realize Islamic proximity is by saving one from apostasy and egoistic views and then achieving the status of nearness to God Almighty because it is then that there will be no ISIL, Takfiri (excommunication) or Salafi groups.
