Grand Ayatollah Sayyid ‘Abd Al-Karim Ardabili

Sectarian Strife

Those who imagine that they can defend Islam with bloodshed and extremism have been duped by becoming tools for the ambitions of the enemies of the Islamic ummah. Imam ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib (A) held the vilification and disrespecting of others to be impermissible and forbade abusive language. In these turbulent times, the followers of the school of the Ahl al-Bayt (A) should be at the forefront of making peace and reconciliation in the ummah against sectarian strife and use the revelatory teachings and guidance of the Messenger of God as a roadmap in their activities.
