Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has warned that enemies of Islam are pursuing plots to sow discord among Muslim nations.
Some heads of Muslim states mistake enemies for friends, Ayatollah Khamenei said in a meeting with participants at the 32nd International Holy Quran Competitions in Tehran on Saturday.
“Officials of certain Muslim countries have an optical illusion and can't tell friend and foe apart. These countries will suffer a blow,” Ayatollah Khamenei stated.
Obedience to the Holy Quran teachings, refusal to succumb to whatever “modern ignorance” wants to impose and resistance against such impositions are the solution to the current problems facing the Muslim world, the Leader said.
“Regretfully, the Muslim world is presently suffering severely from weakness, poverty, discord and civil wars triggered as a result of pressure by ignorant systems,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
He added that the Iranian nation has managed to raise its capabilities and hope by standing up to bullying.
One of the key schemes of the enemies is to provoke divisions and rifts among Muslim nations, the Leader said, stressing the importance of remaining vigilant to the enemies’ divisive plots.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that ill-wishers of Muslim nations seek to sow sectarian, religious and ethnic divisions, urging “wisdom” and “determination” to counter such.
The Leader further said Muslim states have started to take steps in the path of Islam and the Holy Quran, adding, “Islamic Awakening is a fact that cannot be destroyed and its outcomes will spread day by day.”
Ayatollah Khamenei expressed hope that Muslim countries would further practice the teachings of the Holy Quran.
