Fadlullah: The unifying Islamic gatherings ought to face the Takfir, myths, and the religious normalization with the enemy
His Eminence, the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah, received a delegation of the Administrative Board and the Board of Trustees of the Muslim Scholars Gathering. They went through a number of Islamic affairs, the obstacles and problems facing the Islamic unity and the spread of Islam worldwide, the situation in the Chinese province of Chang Jiang, the Muslims' situations in Sudan, Somalia, Afghanistan, and Iraq, as well as the challenges awaiting the Arabs and Muslims concerning the Palestinian cause and the attempts to end it for the enemy's interest.
His Eminence addressed the delegation and went through the challenges facing the Muslims, especially in this stage, noting that the state of weakness inflicting the regimes in the nation is what actually lured everyone to pursue the act of persecuting the Muslims in their different positions in the world, and ignite wars and internal conflicts in their countries and homelands.
His Eminence pointed out that the message that the political Islamic gatherings ought to carry and transmit includes a number of issues, the most important are:
First: working to approximate the points of view among Muslims, not only at the level of intellect, jurisprudence, and politics, but also at the level of educating the Muslims, whether Sunnis or Shiites, on the unifying Islam that rejects any kind of division and separation.
Second: Working in a well-studied, unifying, and scientific method to face myths and exaggeration that did find listening ears, such as the satellite channels whose only concern is to pour oil on the fire, by promoting the myths that further complicate the Islamic reality. Moreover, they prevent it from sensing the external threats, especially those imposed by the Israeli enemy and the international arrogant states, since the expansion of myths and the invasion of exaggeration acts have become a lurking threat that prevents everyone from sensing the danger of the Zionist arrogance.
Third: All those working for the cause of Islam and for unifying the Muslim ranks ought to keep up with the continuous campaigns aiming at distorting the image of Islam, in order to respond to them in an accurate scientific manner and find the best means to deliver these facts to the people using modern communication media at different levels. Moreover, they ought to follow up the problems encountering the Muslims in their countries and gatherings, just like the incidents taking place, nowadays, in the Chinese province of Chang Jiang, as well as in Somalia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, and Sudan. In addition, they ought to focus on Zionism; the most dangerous threat that is on its way to be granted an international authorization to put an end, once and for all, to the Palestinian cause, endangering the Islamic and Arab structure, directly and indirectly.
Fourth: working to face the Takfir issue whose network and negativity are starting to expand by means of complicated figures that are trying to impose their complicated mentalities and fanatic thoughts on the Islamic reality, aiming at further fracturing it to the interest of the nation's enemies.
His Eminence emphasized that the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), along with the Islamic gatherings and the Islamic movements, ought to work on facing the sectarian strife incited by certain international parties and promoted by internal parties, aiming at further complicating the Islamic situation, because the issue is related to the Muslims' field reality and the safety of the entire Islamic structure.
He also confirmed the necessity that the Sunni and Shiite religious scholars should exert great efforts to face the issue of religious normalization with the enemy, which some of its aspects were put into practice lately. He also emphasized the importance of the internal unity to face the aforementioned on the field, cultural, and political levels.
His Eminence, the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah also received Sheikh Ahmad Al-Zein who said after the meeting: We come to visit His Eminence, the Religious Authority Sayyed Muhammad Hussein Fadlullah inspired by the spiritual relation we share and all the respect and appreciation we hold for him and since he enjoys a missionary, moral, Islamic and human value. We come to him based on his unifying Islamic stands that have always called for cooperation and mercy among the Muslims, whatever their sects and projects were, and have rejected all means of division and inciting fanaticism amongst them.
