During his visit to Lebanon, the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly met with Sheikh Maher Hammoud, Secretary-General of the World Union of Resistance Ulama on Sunday, on Sunday, October 17, 2021, in the city of Sidon.
In the meeting, while appreciating the support of the “International Union of Resistance Ulama” for the Resistance, Ayatollah Reza Ramazani stated, “We always follow and appreciate your outstanding activities in the path of resistance.”
“The West has been trying to transform Islam and integrate its concepts into this religion. If they succeeded, the religious revolution would not have taken place,” he continued, pointing out that Islam takes a stand against aggression, and has a justice-seeking position.
“But thank God, a religious revolution took place, and a new theory was presented. Imam Khomeini (r.a.) presented two issues to the world: First, Islam has a plan for state governing. Because many of the Islamic Ahkam (religious rules) are not possible and will not be implemented without an (Islamic) government. Second, in the age of modernity, an (Islamic) government can be established,” added the Secretary-General of the AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly.
“We entered the international arena and proved to the West that a government based on Islam can be established. Compared to 40 years ago, the Islamic Revolution of Iran and the Resistance have become very widespread. The geography of Resistance has spread to most countries, and intellectually, the most important issues of Islam and Islamic concepts have been redefined. Today, Islam has developed quantitatively and qualitatively,” he said.
“Today, leaders of Islamic World must work harder than ever to promote Islamic unity. It is also necessary for the issue of Unity to be one of the greatest concerns of the Islamic Ummah. If Islamic countries were united in political and economic affairs, they would be a great power in the world. The enemy should not be allowed to hinder the unity of Muslims,” said Ayatollah Ramazani, emphasizing the need for unity among Muslim countries.
“The evil axis of Riyadh, Tel Aviv and Washington has dealt heavy blows and seditions to Islam,” he said, referring to the conspiracies of the enemies of Islam.
While inviting Sheikh Maher Hammoud to visit Iran, Ayatollah Ramazani stated, “The AhlulBayt (a.s.) World Assembly believes in the Proximity of Islamic denominations. I believe in Islamic Unity as Imam Khamenei believes, and the issue of unity is one of the necessities of the Islamic world.”
At the beginning of the meeting, Sheikh Maher Hammoud said, “The Islamic Republic of Iran has not forgotten the issue of Palestine since the beginning of the Revolution, and it has been steadfast in this way and has not been weakened. Neither the economic sanctions, nor the conspiracies, nor any other issues have been able to stop Iran from supporting Palestine.”
“Resistance in other countries is a continuation of the Iranian resistance. Great martyrs such as Emad Mughniyeh, Ragheb Harb, Qassem Soleimani, etc. have been martyred in the way of Resistance,” he also stated.
