Afghan Voice Agency (AVA) - Tehran: The 37th International Islamic Unity Conference titled "Islamic Cooperation to Achieve Common Values" with the presence of Ayatollah Sayed Ebrahim Raisi, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran and scholars of the Islamic world, including Afghanistan, this morning. On Saturday, October 1, 2023, it started working in Tehran Summit Hall. Along with other prominent scholars from Afghanistan, for the first time a delegation from the Islamic Emirate headed by the Deputy Ministry of Guidance, Hajj and Awqaf also participated in this conference.
Hojjat-ul-Islam wal-Muslimin Dr. Hamid Shahriari, Secretary General of the World Forum for the Approximation of Islamic Religions and the organizer of this conference, speaking at the opening ceremony of the International Islamic Unity Conference while congratulating on the occasion of the birth of the beloved Prophet of Islam (PBUH) and Imam Jafar Sadiq (a.s.), emphasized: Expanding the discourse A united nation is our fundamental goal in unity conferences. This Qur'anic concept is an ideal that Islamic societies should move towards, and ultimately we hope that an initiative like the Union of Islamic States will come to the fore, the borders of Islamic countries will be blurred, a single Islamic currency will be popularized, and a single parliament that can make laws and regulations.
Stating that the 37th International Conference of Islamic Unity will begin while the Islamic world has witnessed extensive and profound changes over the past year, he emphasized: the claim of the promised Mahdi, (a.j.), has stolen sleep from the eyes of the oppressors. The arrogant people of the world are trying to fuel Islamophobia and deprive the oppressed of the world from their right, which is the sovereignty of the world. But this is the Quran. A book that promises the rule of the oppressed against all the tyrants and arrogant people of the world and introduces them as the final inheritors of the earth.
According to Shahriari, the World Forum for the Rapprochement of Islamic Religions, with the design of the Minaret 2 international conference and its festival, invites all the influential media in the Islamic world, famous media people in social networks, non-governmental organizations and the general public to carry out their activities in the field of the Holy Quran in this to stage a historical event.
He emphasized: It is a source of hope that the Islamic world is moving towards a just peace and is trying to remove the discourse of militancy from the region. We welcome the cessation of fruitless wars in Yemen and Syria. We consider dialogue to be the only way to achieve lasting peace in the region and appreciate the fact that the conflicting parties laid down their weapons and prevented the killing of innocent people and human injuries.
The Secretary General of the World Assembly of the Approximation of Islamic Religions called on the Islamic countries to increase their efforts to eradicate war and bloodshed in the Islamic world. Muslims of all ethnicities and religions need stable security to play a role in the new Islamic civilization. One of the most important common values that Islamic societies can achieve through cooperation is sustainable security; Security is considered in three layers: national, regional and global. For this reason, we have had the opportunity to expand the discourse of unity at different levels by adding to the international conference of Islamic unity in Tehran and the initiative and innovation of regional conferences and thematic conferences.
According to him, the re-establishment of political relations between Saudi Arabia and the Islamic Republic of Iran marked the most important development towards cooperation and friendship between Islamic countries, and it became a light of hope in the hearts of the awakeners of the Islamic world that the two ideological political schools stopped fighting and moved towards cooperation. Effective measures were taken. Considering the extensive discussions that the assembly had with scholars and intellectuals of the Islamic world, I would like to thank them and myself for this unifying movement. Both from the 13th government, which prioritized regional and neighboring cooperation in its relations, and from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which switched from the practice of religious transnationalism to the practice of regional cooperation and became a model for other divergent countries in the region and created the impression that foreign governments never They cannot provide sustainable development goals in the region.
Shahriari stated: This bilateral move by each other promises stable peace and lasting cooperation in the region. We hope that the cooperation between the two countries will expand and lead to synergy in the field of knowledge and technology, regional security, political power and beneficial economic and cultural exchanges, and media convergence will replace the divergence of religious propaganda.
In another part of his speech with Esha Regarding the developments in Afghanistan, he added: the enemies of Islam never stop their enmity. Reducing their greed for the region is one of the requirements for achieving a unified nation. The expulsion of America from Afghanistan has given an unrepeatable opportunity in this era for the comfort and peace of the Afghan people. We hope that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan will take advantage of this opportunity to serve all ethnicities and religions in a fair and honest manner and remove the charge of ethnicism by respecting the rights of all citizens and creating equal opportunities for them. Ethnic and linguistic prejudices will not have any other consequences except the return of past losses and national conflict. Besides that, the World Assembly of the Approximation of Islamic Religions declares its readiness to play a constructive role for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to achieve comprehensiveness.
The organizer of the International Conference of Islamic Unity further noted: Cooperation with the allies of Islamic countries, including Russia and China, will ensure extensive economic and political relations and will turn the Islamic world into a corridor of economic and cultural exchanges. This corridor promises more effective economic and cultural exchanges for cooperation and synergy between Islamic countries and sets a path that will help alleviate poverty and bring prosperity and comfort to Islamic societies more than before.
He also said about the developments in Palestine and the need to support the people of this country: supporting the oppressed people of Palestine is still the priority of the common values of the Islamic world to achieve unity. The spontaneous movement of Palestinians to defend their human rights in the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and inside occupied Palestine requires the full support of the Islamic world. This need should be manifested not only in discourse but also in practice. Meanwhile, the responsibility of neighboring countries is heavier. Our warning is to those who whisper about the normalization of relations with the usurping Zionist regime. We warn them that an alliance with the usurping Zionist regime will never be beneficial for the Islamic world. Remember the bitter taste of cooperating with the enemies of Islam in the case of Bani Qurayzah. When this usurper regime gets a chance, it will stab you in the back. He is not based on any covenant and he follows destruction, terror and strife in the Islamic world, and now he is at his weakest time, but the great victory is close to God's power. And the end of their love is the victory of God and the near victory of the people of the believers.
