Rouhani defined al-Mab’ath as development of human potential and introduction of the rule of law, a rule whose law was Sharia, justice, prudence and consultation with people.
“Unfortunately, the Muslim world is plagued by violence, terrorism, instability and insecurity and is making no progress. Today, once again, we need the mission of the prophet of Islam (PBUH) whose miracle was rhetoric and science which can help Islamic countries of the region get rid of insecurity and instability.”
