Head of Ahlul Bayt (A.S) World Assembly points up the role of Islamic unity in spreading Islamic awakening in the world.

BFnews: “Islamic awakening is based on the idea of Islamic unity and the idea of proximity among Islamic schools of Thought,” said head of Ahlul Bayt (A.S) World Assembly, Hojjatol Islam Mohammad Hassan Akhtari.

“Many of the leaders and prominent revolutionary figures in Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria and other countries are the members of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought,” the Islamic scholar mentioned.

“They are cognizant of the role and necessity of unity among Muslims and participate in the conferences of Islamic Unity,” Hojjatol Islam Akhtari added.

He went on “ Considering the fact, we can say that the wave of Islamic awakening is derived from the idea of Islamic unity and proximity among Islam denominations.”

“The main goal of Islamic revolution in Islamic Ummah is making unity among all Muslims and for accomplishing this goal Muslim countries took Iran as their paradigm,” head of Ahlul Bayt (A.S) World Assembly underlined.

“The remarks and advices of Iran Supreme Leader [Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei] played an important part in informing people and guiding revolutionary Muslim nations,” Hojjatol Islam Akhtari said.

He also asked scholars to eschew from ignorance and said, “Islamic scholars should be more aware than before and eschew from saying something which lead to division among Muslims.”
