Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi urges unity among Shia-Sunni

Grand Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi highlighted the importance of promoting religious activities in order to introduce the world to the moral virtues of the holy infallibles (as) with respect to the unity among Sunni and Shia Muslims.

In a meeting with the secretariat members of the conference on Ahl-ul-Bayt’s Sirah which is due to be held in April in Qom, Iran, Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, a Shia source of emulation asserted, “The Ahl-ul-Bayt’s (as) moral virtues must be introduced to the whole world; Any effort to promote Ahl-ul-Bayt’s (as) doctrine and teachings is considered as a worthwhile religious act and is therefore rewarded with divine bounty.”

The senior cleric added, “Considering the ill intentions and propagations of Wahhabis to defame Islam and Ahlulbayt (as), it becomes of crucial importance to familiarize the world with true aspects of Ahl-ul-Bayt’s (as) lives and teachings, especially Imam Ali’s (as).”

“In order to promote genuine Ahl-ul-Bayt (as) teachings, one must be careful not to cause discord among Sunni and Shia Muslims as it is essential for us to maintain our unity as a whole Islamic Ummah.” Hawzah quoted Ayatollah Makarem as saying.

It is worth mentioning that the 2nd Conference on Ahl-ul-Bayt’s (as) Sirah is going to be held in April in Qom, Iran as well as in the city of Najaf in Iraq.
