The message of Khawaja Moinudeen Hasan Chishty(ra) is so important in today’s troubled time for uniting global Islamic Communities and also living n serving peacefully with Humanity at large.
At the International Conference emphasis was put on defining A takfiri is a Muslim who accuses another Muslim of apostasy.
It aims to discuss ongoing attempts by actors within and outside Muslim countries to divide the Muslim world and portray it in a bad light.
Such attempts have manifested themselves, among other things, in spreading Takfirism. The extremist ideology, which features branding people of other faiths as “infidels,” is mostly rooted in Wahhabism, the radical ideology dominating Saudi Arabia.
Muslim scholars attend the international conference on countering Takfirism in the Iranian capital, Tehran, November 22, 2017.
The conference began with a keynote speech by Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior advisor to Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and the chairman of the Islamic Awakening International Assembly.
Ali Akbar Velayati speaking at the event Velayati said Islam’s enemies seek to subjugate Muslim countries, create insecurity within them, and plunder their resources by whatever means at their disposal, including the propagation of Takfirism.
The phenomenon, he suggested, had come in the way of Islamic Awakening, the widespread protest movement that began around seven years ago and deposed dictatorship in a number of countries in North Africa and the Middle East.
The ill-wishers are seeking to paint a dark picture of Islam based on the Wahhabi model by revitalizing the pre-Islamic era ignorance, which allowed such reprehensible atrocities as the beheading of children, the immolation of men, and assaulting women, Velayati said.
However, parts of the Muslim world, he said, had witnessed heartening developments thanks to national resolve and the support of the resistance movement.
The official was referring to the recent fall of the Takfiri terrorist group of Daesh in Iraq and Syria.
The World Assembly of Islamic Awakening had organised the international conference in the Iranian capital on Wednesday about ways to counter Takfiri and extremist ideologies in the Muslim world.
Titled “The World Conference on Lovers of Ahl al-Bayt (AS) and the Takfiri Issue”, the two-day event opened in Tehran on Wednesday.
It focused on the principles shared by the lovers of Ahl al-Bayt -the family of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH)- and weigh plans for countering Takfiri and extremist ideologies through Muslim unity.
Back in June, the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening had invited intellectuals and scholars from around the world to submit their contributions to the secretariat of the assembly for presentation in the conference.
The international gathering is planned to discuss the following six main topics:
– Concepts, foundations, and thoughts of lovers of Ahl al-Bayt (AS);
– History and civilization of Islamic religions and its role in the establishment of modern Islamic civilization;
– Ideas of top Muslim thinkers and scholars in the formation of a single, united Muslim nation in the face of deviated groups;
– Alliance and integrity of lovers of Ahl al Bayt (AS) in the formation of a single, united nation;
– Identification of challenges and threats facing the lovers of Ahl al-Bayt (AS) and the Muslims world
– Strategies and solutions to the unity of the lovers of Ahl al-Bayt (AS) in the face of enemies of Islam (global arrogance, Zionism, reactionary regimes and Takfiri groups).
The World Assembly of Islamic Awakening has held several meetings and conferences in recent years to strengthen Muslim bonds, support the cause of Palestine and counter Zionist policies, and fight against the ideologies of Takfiri, radical, and terrorist groups.
