BFnews: Hojjat-ol-Islam Seyyed Mahdi Alizade Mousavi, Iranian university and seminary professor explained unity to ignore the differences between religious denominations and slammed Wahhabism and other fake religions for their divisive efforts.
He rejected unity to mean that all Islamic denominations forget their special religious beliefs and turn to one denomination, saying, "Unity among Islamic denominations is to leave the disagreements, maintain our beliefs in minutiae and unite with each other in our belief in principles."
He counted the commonalities to be exceeding the differences and said, "The religious texts of all Islamic denominations are in fact the same and they all share the same holy quotations and narratives." Counting the commonalities of these denominations as the axis around which all Islamic denominations can gather.
"Monotheism is the best teaching which is the commonality of not only all Islamic denominations but also the meeting point of all divine religions," said the cleric and counted monotheism as the criterion that can provide the ground for interaction among all religions.
He called the holy Kaba as the incarnate and in fact as the symbol of monotheism since it is the praying direction for all Muslims.
This religious figure also called shared enemies as another commonality among Muslims and said, "All Muslims have the same enemies who look at Shia and Sunni through the same lenses," adding that the difference between Shia and Sunni paves the way towards their goals.
This university professor also explained on colonialism and divided that to the classic and neocolonialism saying, "Classical colonialism is the physical presence of the enemies in the Islamic countries and the modern form for that is the cultural and ideological presence of colonialism in Muslim countries."
He referred to the Triangle of Evil and said there are three derivative attitudes in the world which are backed by the colonialists.
"Baha'i and Qadiani and Wahhabism are the three sides of this triangle out of which the last one is responsible for the division among the Muslims," said Hojjat-ol-Islam Seyyed Mahdi Alizade Mousavi.
This religious thinker hailed the recent moves among the Muslims and said a renaissance is forming in the Muslim World which has awakened the Muslims and now all Muslims from all races and denominations are looking for one united meaning and that is Ummah (Islamic Nation).
