Ulama and government officials must keep this under control.
That is a duty that lies on the shoulders of all groups of Muslims, both Shia and Sunni. This ideological bias is an internal obstacle to unity. They came into being the day the dominant political powers in the world realized that they could influence other nations. Unfortunately, some people in Muslim countries act as a tool in the hands of the spiteful enemies who seek to harm us.
But it is not enough to choose names and talk about things. It is our duty to make efforts to create unity in the world of Islam. It can bring about glory for Muslim nations and communities.
Consider the current situation of the Muslim countries in the world.
Look at the situation of Muslims, who currently make up one fourth of the entire world population. But this faith must not cross the line between logical argumentation and aggressive rejection of others' beliefs.
However, their role in world politics, even in their internal affairs, is far less important than the role of foreign governments and superpowers with evil intentions. They seek to humiliate Muslim nations and force them into complete conformity. Our brothers who are part of the Muslim Ummah must treat each other with respect.
That was because according to famous traditions narrated by our Sunni brothers, Rabi al-Awwal 12 marks the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet (S).
But according to famous traditions narrated by the Shia, the Holy Prophet's (S) birth anniversary falls on Rabi al-Awwal 17.
The fact that I constantly advise our people and my audience against foreigners is not just because superpowers are foreigners. There are over fifty Muslim countries in the world. There are two major obstacles to unity and we must think of a way to remove them. They have a right to adhere to their own beliefs, but they must respect others, their rights, and their beliefs.
How can these Muslim countries stand up to these gross and evil intentions of domination? There is the internal obstacle that is the result of denominational bias. Muslims must leave ideological debates to scholarly meetings.
