Ghadir Al-Khumm, the Starting Point for Shi'a and Sunni Unity: part 1
- :Hashemi Rezvani
Firstly, I would like to congratulate the readers on the auspicious occasion of Eid Al-Ghadir. Before starting the main part, I would like to draw the readers' attention to some points:
It should be borne in mind that discussing certain evidences and documents on Ali Ibn Abi Talib’s Imamate shall not in any way be in contrast with the unity among Muslims because genuine argument and presentation of parties' reasons and evidences would not harm Muslim Unity. Also, the clear documents and reasons which prove Imam Ali (AS)'s Imamate won't imply hostility and conflict with other Islamic schools of thought. In Contrast, unlike many superficial viewpoints, the deeper one’s faith in Ali Ibn Abi Talib’s Imamate, the more insistence on the issue of Unity and other religious concepts and principals such as friendship with God's friends and hostility to God's enemies.
