Muslims must mobilize efforts to set up new civilization

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called on Islamic thinkers to help “establish a new Islamic civilization.”

“Today, the Western civilization is revealing its contradictions. It is now Islam’s turn and it is up to Muslims to mobilize their efforts and establish a new Islamic civilization.", the Leadersaid Tuesday on the occasion of the birth anniversary of the Prophet of Islam, adding, "This address, however, is to Ulama and Islamic thinkers of the world who do not regard the West as their Qibla. I have no much hope in the world of Islam’s politicians,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

In his address to a group of participants at an international conference on Islamic unity held in Tehran, Muslim ambassadors, and Iranian officials, Ayatollah Khamenei said, referring to Sheikh Ibrahim al-Zakzaky who is being held incommunicado in military detention.      

“In Nigeria, why is this level of tragedy being brought on that peaceful, pro-proximity and faithful sheikh? Why is the world of Islam silent?”

Elsewhere in his remarks, the leaders also warned that enemies are trying to trigger infighting among Muslims as they are destroying Islamic countries. 

“The aim of the enemies today is to set off a civil war among Muslims which they have unfortunately succeeded to some extent,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, noting, “They are destroying countries one after another. They are destroying Syria, Yemen and Libya. They have Muslims in Bahrain under pressure.”
