Sunni scholar:

Accra (IP) - A famous Islamic Sunni scholar and leader of Wataniya Islamic unit Ghana, Ustaz Muhammed Kashif Asrar in an exclusive interview with Iran Press has lauded the Islamic unity under the leadership of Imam Ali Khamenei and described it as a symbolic representation of unity among Muslims.

Iran PressAfrica: According to Ustaz Muhammed, Muslims are supposed to work together towards a common goal set by the Quran and shown by the Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). 

"Almighty Allah (SWT) said hold fast to the rope of Allah and do not be divided. This verse tell us to be united because unity is strength, when we are united, we have the power, we have the strength to fight the enemies, but when you are divided the enemy gets an upper hand on you and defeat you easily."

"Today there is a massive division among Muslim ummah but when you look at the factors that contribute our division you realise we have stronger bonds, stronger reasons why we should be united rather than divided. We as Muslims have prophet Muhammed (PBUH) we have the Holy Quran and one Qibla that is the ka'abah, all these mentioned are enough reasons to bind us and make us one and united, irrespective of our sect, our background, our region, our believes, we are one single ummah." 

Ustaz Muhammed further explained the frequent desecration of the sacred Holy Quran in some European countries and the role Islamic unity played in trying to get international documents for the legal pursuit of preventing the desecration of the Holy Quran, he added.
