Molavi Abdul Samad Damani, manager of Haghaniyeh Sunni Seminary in the city of Iranshahr, in an interview with Taqrib News Agency (TNA) noted enemies struggle to divide Muslims, be it Shia or Sunni, stressing Islamic unity as the solution to issues in the world of Islam.
He said,” There is no difference between Shia and Sunni for the enemies and the most clear evidence for efforts to spread intrigue among Muslims is that Muslim killing has expanded in the Islamic countries.”
Molavi Damani stressed,” This fratricide is expanding among Muslims when avoiding dispersion and maintaining unity has always been highlighted in Islam.”
Iranian Sunni cleric reiterated solidarity as the only solution out of the intrigue plaguing Muslims referring to Islamic Sharia, Qur’an and lifestyle of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) as common assets all Muslims can base their unity upon saying,” It is only in the light of this solidarity and full obedience of Islamic Sharia that we can distance the present ambiance of fratricide.”
Manager of Darl-ul-Olum Haghaniyeh Seminary highlighted the pacifist nature of Islam and said,” Islam is the religion of peace and dialogue and there is no space for violence, fratricide and violation of people’s rights in this holy religion.”
“All the incidents in the world of Islam which are allegedly committed by Muslims are due to misunderstanding of a minor group who have not comprehended Islam truly” said the scholar.
Molavi Damani added,” In order to achieve an accurate understanding of Islam we should refer to Qur’an and lifestyle of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) with the guidance of well-informed elites and thinkers.”
The cleric warned against intrigues by world arrogant powers and said,” At present the west and world arrogant powers, to guarantee their benefits, have plagued the world of Islam with intrigues and dispersion; hence, we should not expect them to solve the issue for us.”
According to Molavi Damani the solution to Muslim world issues is possible only through their unity and once this solidarity is achieved, world will be witness to return of the golden age of promotion for Islam.
