Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah asserted that what the takfiris are currently engaged in is the most serious distortion of Islam in history, as the means of communication and media convey these horrible images to the entire world.
During the third night of Muharram at Sayyed Al-Shuhadaa complex in the southern suburb of Beirut, Sayyed Nasrallah noted that the takfiris’ conduct deports the non-Muslims from Islam, adding that they kill and slaughter and base their atrocities on fabricated Hadiths from the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.).
“The takfiris present the Muslims as a group that are thirsty for bloodshed,” Sayyed Nasrallah said, “This would consecrate this falsified concept about Islam.”
His Eminence pointed out that the takfiri thought is based on obfuscation, shedding blood, confiscating properties and violating the honor of all who are different.
“The takfiri thought was established in the Arab world almost 200 years ago and was provided with financial as well as governmental capabilities which founded the universities, schools, newspapers, and houses of publications in order to pervade its concepts all over the world.”
“Islam, the nation and the Islamic societies are being threatened by this takfiri thought whose causes, not effects must be addressed.”
Sayyed Nasrallah called on defending Islam as he saw that the Sunni and the Shiite clerics must loudly convey the reality of Islam to the world.
Hezbollah’s leader considered that the confrontation with takfirism must be primarily cultural, intellectual and scientific.
Sayyed Nasrallah also called on preventing the spread of this trend, and noted that Saudi Arabia is primarily responsible for this task as it can close down the schools from where the takfiri ideology is being taught and disseminated.
Sayyed Nasrallah went on to say that facing the takfiri trend is not carried out only by the security and the militarily option because “Islam does not seek to murder, but rescue people in this life and in the afterlife.”
