RNA – Bahrain’s most prominent Shi’ah cleric, Ayatollah Isa Qasim underlined the need for all Muslims’ assistance and continuation of the path of jihad for the victory of the Islamic Resistance Axis.
Addressing an international congress on the holy city of al-Quds (Jerusalem) on Monday evening, Ayatollah Qasim said Islamic unity is necessary for the Muslim world victory.
Scattered measures won’t lead to results, he said, stressing the need for abandoning sectarian differences in favour of the Islamic ummah’s interests.
The senior cleric also criticized those seeking normalization of ties with the Zionist regime of Israel, underlining the continuation of the path of Jihad.
The international congress featuring the holy city of al-Quds (Jerusalem) is held on Monday and Tuesday via videoconference.
It has been organized ahead of the International al-Quds Day.
Scholars and political figures from 18 countries deliver speeches at the international event.
The International al-Quds Day is a legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, who designated the day in solidarity with Palestinians.
Since the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, the International al-Quds Day has been held worldwide on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan.
This year, International al-Quds Day falls on Friday, May 22.
