RNA – Hujjat al-Islam Sayyed Mohammad Hoseyni-Shahroudi, the representative of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran’s western Kordestan province, offered his congratulations on the auspicious month of Rabi al-Awwal and the birth anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad to all Muslims in the Islamic world, and said it was necessary to protect the unity of Muslims and said, “Unity causes dignity, greatness and prosperity for any country and divisions and differences weaken the power of the country.”
He considered Kordestan province, which has a predominantly Sunni population, as an embodiment of the unity of Iran and added, “The enemies are seeking to divide Muslims, but they are prevented from doing so through the unity and brotherhood of the different classes of understanding people. The awareness and insight of the people of the country and Kordestan province is becoming greater and greater every day.”
Islamic Unity Week refers to a ceremony held every year both by Sunnis and Shi’ah Muslims. The event is held between two dates of the birth anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad in Islamic narrations. One of the dates is narrated by Sunnis and the other narrated by Shi’ahs.
