Shiakh Alaeddin Zaatari, a university professor from Syria in his remarks remarks at webinar of the 37th Islamic Unity Conference said the religion of Islam is not specific to a clan or a nation or a particular people and in Islamic beliefs and Sharia, there is no place for nationalism or racism, reported Taqrib News Agency (TNA).
"In an atmosphere full of racism, tribalism, and nationalism, the religion of Islam appeared and canceled those hateful tendencies with a bold line", he added.
The Syrian cleric noted that the Islamic brotherhood is one of the most important reasons for the honor of Muslims, and when Muslims abandon brotherhood, they will lose their honor and greatness, and they will see their glory and honor lost.
He highlighted that the religious awareness is not only limited to spiritual issues, because Islam encompasses spiritual and worldly aspects of humans together.
Zaatari asked the Islamic educational centers to teach the history of colonialism in Islamic lands and to improve Muslims awareness about the plots of enemies of the world of Islam.
