Islamic unity can relieve Muslim from political influence of colonial powers

Imam Khomeini once said in a historic address as following:

"Today, world peace is such that all countries are under the political influence of the superpowers; they observe a control everywhere and have schemes for defeating every group. The most important of these is sowing discord among brothers.”  

Late Founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran Imam Khomeini declared the birth anniversary of the holy prophet of Islam occasion as the Islamic Unity Week back in the 1980s.

One major example of Imam Khomeini's initiative for Islamic Unity is the establishment of the Islamic Unity Week.

The 17th day of Rabi al-Awwal, which falls on November 15 this year, is believed by Shia Muslims to mark the birth anniversary of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), while Sunni Muslims regard the 12th day of the month (November 10) as the birthday of the last prophet.

The interval between the two dates is celebrated every year as the Islamic Unity Week.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will be the key-note speaker at the opening ceremony in Tehran on November 14, 2019.

The Islamic Summit Conference Hall will host the event.

The motto of this year’s conference is “Ummah’s Unity in Defending Al-Aqsa Mosque”.

There will be 20 expert forums and meetings during the conference.

On the sidelines of the international event, five Muslim world personalities who have greatly contributed to the promotion of proximity among Islamic schools of thought will be honored.

More than 350 scholars, thinkers and political, religious and cultural figures from 93 countries are expected to attend the conference.

The international conference is annually held in the Islamic Unity Week.
