Imam Khomeini on Islamic Unity

Imam Khomeini on Islamic Unity



“Today, world peace is such that all countries are under the political influence of the superpowers; they observe a control everywhere and have schemes for defeating everyimam.jpg group. The most important of these is sowing discord among brothers.Muslims should be awake!

Muslims should be alert that if a dispute takes place among Sunni and Shi’ite brothers, it is harmful to all of us, it is harmful to all Muslims.

Those who want to sow discord are neither Sunni nor Shi’ite, they are agents of the superpowers and work for them.

Those who attempt to cause discord among our Sunni and Shi’ite brothers are people who conspire for the enemies of Islam and want the enemies of Islam to triumph over Muslims. They are the supporters of America and some are supporters of the Soviet Union.

I hope that through considering this Islamic precept – that all Muslims are brothers – all Islamic countries will triumph against the superpowers and succeed in actualizing all Islamic ordinances.

Muslims are brothers and will not be segregated by the pseudo-propaganda sponsored by corrupt elements. The source of this matter – that Shi’ites should be on one side and Sunni on the other – is on the one hand ignorance and on the other hand propaganda of the foreigners.

If Islamic brotherhood comes to the fore among Islamic countries, such will become a great power which none of the global powers will be able to cope with.

Shi’ites and Sunnis brothers should avoid every kind of dispute. Today, discord among us will only benefit those who follow neither Shi’ia nor Hanafi. They neither want this nor that to exist, and know the way to sow dispute between you and us. We must pay attention that we are all Muslims and we all believe in the Qur’an; we all belive in Tawheed and must work to serve the Qur’an and Tawheed.”





One thought on “Imam Khomeini on Islamic Unity”

  1. All Muslims must remember, mere victory, say over America in 1979, does not make Shiism or Sunnism a valid sect of Islam. This victory is both moral and immoral, which God knows better. Muslims must be critical about their faith and behavior in light of the teachings of the Quran and example of the Prophet of it. Neither the Shias nor the Sunnis are doing that self criticism and that has made them just like the Christians and Jews and it needs to get better.
