He added, “The commemoration of Islamic Unity Week doesn’t mean that unity must be observed during this week only but rather the naming of this week is only aimed at strengthening unity among Muslims. Islamic Unity Week, with the aim of building culture in this field, is considered as very important.”
Hujjat al-Islam Taghavi continued, “In the world today, where the neo-colonialist and the imperialist powers have endangered the interests and material resources of Muslims and the ummah, the unity between Shi’ah and Sunni Muslims is one of the essential and obligatory requirements of Muslim life.”
The secretary of the Central Council of the Combatant Clergy Association emphasized that under the shadow of unity, Muslims must demonstrate the power of Islam and the Islamic ummah to the arrogant and bullying powers, said, “The victory of the Islamic ummah is only achievable in the light of unity.”
He acknowledged the role of the scholars in strengthening unity as very important and stated, “Intellectuals, scientists and scholars, especially the religious scholars, have always been guides to the people. The people received religious and religious information from religious scholars. Therefore, they have played a very important role in influencing the creation of unity in the Islamic societies and in this regard, history has proven its importance.”
Hujjat al-Islam Taghavi continued, “Throughout history, scholars have always been at the forefront of the people and the people have also set foot on the stage of the political struggle by following the scholars. The great example of this is the Islamic Revolution of Iran led by Imam Khomeyni, who achieved victory through unity and solidarity.”
