Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli referring to the killings during the two world wars said, “It has been almost a century since the brutal killings that occurred during Word War I and II but what benefits did the murderers, such as the United States, receive except for disgrace?”
RNA – Professor Bartolomeo Pirone, a famous Italian scholar of Islam, met with Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli at the Esra International foundation for Revealed Sciences in Qom.
In response to Professor Pirone’s question about the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and world peace, Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli said, “Islam has many commonalities with other religions and the Prophet Muhammad and other prophets had a single goal and many commonalities on their paths and in their methods because the prophets came to introduce humanity to themselves, to introduce the world to humanity and to explain the relationship between humanity and the world for the people.”
The revered source of emulation referred to the killings which occurred during World War I and World War II, “Unfortunately, World War I and World War II resulted in many deaths, at least 70 million people were killed. A significant number of people were killed by the United States. It has been almost a century since this brutal bloodbath and the main question is what benefits did the murderers, such as the United States, receive except for disgrace?”
Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli emphasized, “The prophets came to tell us that human society isn’t governed except through peace, tranquillity and affection. Therefore, the Quranic interpretations are summarized in three parts, the ‘local’ section, which deals with the interconnectedness of Muslims, the ‘regional’ section which deals with the relationship between Muslims and other monotheists of the world and the third part of the ‘international’ section of humanity, which belongs to all of mankind, whether monotheists or polytheists, because humanity is intrinsic in all human beings and is the same. Humanity only has one truth and therefore, God considers us the children of one person and calls on us by saying ‘Oh son of Adam!’”
His Eminence added, “This is a corner of peace for all the prophets, especially the beloved Prophet of Islam, such that when he conquered Makkah, despite all the harm he had suffered from the people of Makkah, he said, ‘set your weapons aside, open your closed fists and shake hands.’ This is the entirety of Islam for the world and that’s enough. There is nothing more beautiful and pleasant than that. We hope these teachings are passed on to you and your friends around the world.”
After listening to Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli’s remarks, Professor Pirone expressed his happiness to meet him and said, “As a Christian, I ask God to protect His Eminence for all the monotheists of the world.”
Professor Bartolomeo Pirone was a former professor of the Arabic Language and Literature at the University of Naples of Oriental Studies and a scholar at the Ambrosian Library in Milan.
