RNA – Grand Ayatollah Abdollah Javadi-Amoli met with a group of Shi’a and Sunni clerics from the United Kingdom, where he highlighted the Holy Quran as the most important factor for Islamic proximity, saying this is only attainable by seeking nearness to God Almighty and adding that God sent the Quran for Muslims to keep hold of and attain nearness to him.
Citing verse 103 of Surah Al Imran, the revered source of emulation referred to the Quran to as the “holy rope of God” which is attached to God and both saves humanity once it is held on to firmly and added that it is then that the Quran paves the grounds for spiritual ascendance.
The cleric stressed: “Holding the holy rope of God not only liberates us from yielding to foreign countries but also makes others dependent on us.”
Ayatollah Javadi-Amoli said all Muslims are called to nearness and unity and this unity is feasible only by nearness to God Almighty.
The renowned Shi’a jurisprudent concluded that the only way to realize Islamic proximity is by saving one from apostasy and egoistic views and then achieving the status of nearness to God Almighty because when these actions are achieved, only will there be no ISIL, Takfiri (excommunication) or Salafi groups.
