Press Shia Agency – A prominent Sunni cleric from Iran’s West Azerbaijan province noted the new Islamic civilization since the beginning was based on rationality and philanthropy. The arrogant powers have sparked war among Muslims through different methods.

Press Shia Agency – Shaykh Mamousta Abdul-Qadir Sohrabi, the Sunni prayer leader of Mahabad, highlighted unity and cooperation as needed pillars for new Islamic civilization otherwise the glory of Islam will be uprooted.

He said, “Thoughts which prevent promotion of Islam should be uprooted so that a true Islam and not American-style Islam is achieved.”

Shaykh Sohrabi referred to foundations of modern Islamic civilization based on Quranic teachings and said, “Modern Islamic civilization is formed when all legislations and plans originate from the Holy Quran.”

He called for awakening of academic and research centres in line with paving the path for new Islamic civilization.

He hailed the previous achievements by Muslims gained in the light of solidarity and convergence.

“This is while, at present, arrogant powers have sparked war among Muslims through different methods,” the Iranian Sunni scholar said.

The Friday prayer leader of Mahabad concluded, “Formation of new Islamic civilization should happen based on commonalities of all Islamic denominations so that settling minor disagreements between Muslims will lead to formation of a unified Islamic nation.”
