Mosques play pivotal role in uniting Islamic Ummah: Raeisi

The Iranian President has described unity and solidarity as one of the most urgent needs of the Islamic world today, noting that one of the significant roles of mosques is to create unity and solidarity among the Islamic Ummah.

President Raeisi who traveled to Algeria to participate in the 7th summit of the leaders of the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF) visited the Algerian Grand Mosque. During his visit,  he met and held talks with the Imam of the Grand Mosque of Algeria.

Today, enlightening about the oppressed Palestinian Muslims in Gaza as the main issue of the Islamic world, and also talking about humanity in the world should be at the center of the activities of mosques in Islamic lands, President Raeisi said.

Fortunately, the Islamic Republic of Iran and Algeria have a united position on the Palestinian issue, he said, noting that if there were such a common position in support of the oppressed Palestinian nation and confronting the Zionist regime in the whole Muslim world, would the Zionists dare to commit such crimes against the oppressed Palestinians?

Describing unity and solidarity as one of the most essential needs of the Islamic world today, he underlined that one of the most important roles of mosques is to create unity and solidarity among the Islamic Ummah.

Referring to the role of Algerian mosques in mobilizing the popular forces during the colonial period, Raeisi added that Imam Khomeini (RA), the founder of the Islamic Revolution of Iran, considered mosques to be bastions of struggle against deviation and fighting oppression and used this enormous capacity to advance the divine goals of the Islamic Revolution.

Iranian President further emphasized the readiness of the Islamic Republic of Iran to expand cultural relations with Algeria by focusing on mosques to increase knowledge, and science and create unity and solidarity in the Islamic world.

The Imam of the Grand Mosque of Algeria, for his part, while lauding the courageous and historic positions of the Islamic Republic of Iran on the issue of Palestine, hoped other Islamic countries would also take steps in the same direction.
