Leader stresses on Muslim unity

Tehran, April 26 - Supreme Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei here Tuesday invited world of Islam to unity and vigilance against the divisive plots of arrogance. "Unity is one of the most important needs of Muslim Umma today and ever," said Ayatollah Khamenei in an address to a group of state officials, foreign thinkers attending the 18th unity conference as well as Muslim states' ambassadors on the occasion of the birthday anniversaries of the holy Prophet of Islam Hazrat Mohammad (peace be upon him) and his sixth infallible successor Hazrat Imam Jafar Sadeq (AS).

Ayatollah Khamenei said the standard and pivot of unity, to which the Islamic Republic of Iran invites the world of Islam, is the holy Prophet of Islam Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH). The Supreme Leader said that Muslim world is facing its fate today due to little attention given to unity. There are naturally certain ethnic, religious and political differences in the world of Islam which can be solved through reliance on the injunctions of the seal of Prophets, Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH), noted the Supreme Leader.

Enemies of Islam are ceaselessly at work to fan discord and hostility among Muslims, that are times difficult to be overcome, said Ayatollah Khamenei, adding that men of wisdom from all Islamic schools of thought should maintain vigilance and resist all the tidal waves of the plots.

The Supreme Leader said Muslim Ummah's vigilance is the reason for growing and more complicated discordant plots of the US and Zionism as well as of other world arrogant powers. Elsewhere in his speech, Ayatollah Khamenei said endless natural resources, huge cultural heritage, efficient manpower and a big market of 1.5 billion Muslim population have prompted the hegemonic powers to decide to extend their domination on the world Islam but Muslims' unity would create a highly powerful fence against the conspiracies and due to the same reason, enemies of Islam are fully geared to demolish the barrier.

Ayatollah Khamenei said Iranian nation's Islamic Revolution is the cause of awakening, self-confidence and hope among Muslim nations, adding that since Muslim Ummah is influenced by Iranian nation, the world devouring powers are aiming their plots against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The Supreme Leader warned that the world hegemonic powers are in efforts to extend their yoke in the entire world of Islam -- from Africa to Middle East and to East Asia -- and this gives a warning to the world of Islam that if no resistance is made against plots of arrogance, no Muslim state will be eventually immune against invasion of the world devouring powers. Referring to the intellectual inability of the enemies of Islam in presenting a lofty and attractive school of thought and ideology, Ayatollah Khamenei said, "to cover up the failure and poverty of thought, they (enemies of Islam) have raised the banner of defending human rights and campaign against terrorism.. the US and Zionism are themselves the standard bearer of violation of human rights and training terrorists."

Ayatollah Khamenei said Muslim elite, thinkers and politicians as well as men of pen and expression shoulder the heavy duty to counter the complicated plots of the arrogance. The Supreme Leader stressed that while vigilantly facing the plots and unveiling the strong enmity of the US and Zionism against the holy religion of Islam, one should fan hopes in hearts of Muslims on their brilliant future.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that while using science, ration and wisdom to empower Muslim Ummah from within, one should encourage resistance against the world bullying powers so that God Almighty would fulfill its irrevocable promise and Muslims and Islam would retain their worthy position.
