Sunni world welcomes Leader’s fatwa
Tehran Times Political Desk


TEHRAN - A number of Sunni figures have hailed the fatwa recently issued by Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Seyyed Ali Khamenei that prohibits insulting the companions of Prophet Muhammad (S) and his wives.


In a statement issued on Sunday, Ahmad al-Tayyib, the chancellor of Al-Azhar University of Islamic Sciences, said Ayatollah Khamenei’s fatwa (religious edict) was prudent and timely and would help ram the door shut to fitna (creating divisions among Muslims).

“I received the blessed fatwa with appreciation,” he added.

Such insults have always been a source of controversy and disputes between Shia and Sunni Muslims and prevented them from forging a robust unity against common enemies, the Press TV correspondent in Cairo quoted him as saying.

Ayatollah Khamenei’s fatwa was issued after Kuwaiti Shia cleric Yasser Al-Habib insulted Aisha, a wife of Prophet Muhammad (S). The Kuwaiti cabinet voted this week to revoke his citizenship.

The leader of Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood, Hammam Saeed, also praised the fatwa, describing it as a significant step to prevent “religious fitna” and maintain unity among Muslims, Al Jazeera reported.

In addition, on October 3, participants at the Fourth International Conference of Proximity Amongst Islamic Schools of Thought hailed the fatwa issued by Ayatollah Khamenei, according to the Khabar Online website.

A number of Arabic language newspapers, such as Al-Hayat, Al-Watan, Al-Shorouq, and Al-Rai Al-Aam, have also expressed appreciation for the fatwa.

The Western media have not given the fatwa wide coverage, but the Egyptian people and the North African country's media outlets have welcomed the brave move by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution.

Ayatollah Khamenei recently said that the Western powers are trying to widen differences between Sunnis and Shias in order to divert attention from the crisis in Palestine.

The Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran added, ""The enemies of Islam want to create discord among Muslims. So, unity is the most important need of the Islamic world in the 21st century.”

Good step for me and it will not ofcourse change my mind about some of the prophets companions or Aisha but will be obeying orders from Allah in Quran to unite and our imams do syop from something if it will lead to discord between muslims.

Some people think that unity is when sunni or shia give away their values or principles and this is misunderstood.

That's good. A step in the right direction. But it is important to understand that the Shiites are not going to send salawat or something after they've mentioned Aisha or the first three caliphs. If it is the Sunni leaders believe they are on the wrong track. Now I hope that any Sunni leaders,", begins to cease to discriminate against Shiite Muslims in some countries.
