Addressing the seminar on Friday, Mehdi Feiz referred to verse 64 of Surah Al Imran that calls for unity and said materialization of unity is quite possible, IRNA reported.
He said unity among Muslims should be given more importance than others, adding that staying away from discord and strengthening Islamic unity around the Holy Quran and Holy Prophet (PBUH) is necessary.
Referring to the enemy plots in countries like Syria and Iraq, Dr Feiz urged Muslims to remain vigilant against such schemes plotted by the enemies, iqna.ir reported.
He also said that the late founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran Imam Khomeini (RA) and the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei have emphasized the importance of unity in the Muslim world.
