According to the cleric the enemies of Islam are in two groups: the foreign enemy and the domestic enemy.
Prayer leader of At-Touhid Mosque warned of the domestic enemy to be more dangerous and more harmful and noted that the false image of Islam is precisely the product of the actions by the domestic enemies.
The cleric counted hypocrites and fanatics as the two subdivisions of domestic enemies and added," Both hypocrisy and bigotry are great enemies and negative factors tarnishing the image of true Islam, because where Islam is properly implemented, there is no room for hypocrisy and bigotry."
It is interesting to see that the hypocrites also use fanatics such as ISIS, al-Qaeda to commit any crime in order to disfigure the face of Islam.
He called on Muslims to highlight what unites them and make full use of occasions such as Quds Day and Islamic Unity Week to strengthen their fraternal ties and continue what they achieve during this specific week throughout the year.
Starting to feel a relationship with other Muslims in this way should be something that flows from the heart because through the unity of Muslims, we strengthen Islam.
He warned," Islam is weakened when we are divided into parts" and added," As long as we play the same game of fanatics and hypocrites that divides and weakens us, we will grow more and more distant and divided and It will be easier for others to portray us in a dark light."
The prayer leader of At-Touhid Mosque delivered his speech in the webinar on the fifth day of the 35th International Islamic Unity Conference on the theme "Islamic Unity, Peace and Avoidance of Division and Conflict in the World of Islam."
