This Be’that was in fact a call that invited people to the arena of moral, intellectual, and legal education.
These are the things that are needed for a peaceful and developing life. Intellectual education - that is, extracting man's reason and making it dominant over his thoughts and actions, or giving man the beacon of wisdom and enabling him to find his way by its light - is of primary importance.
These are the machinations of arrogant powers and, unfortunately, some people in the world of Islam have fallen for these machinations.
They do not want to let the sweet memory of the victories in Lebanon and Gaza remain in the minds of Muslims. The most important duty lies on the shoulders of Muslim politicians.
They found that situation unpleasant and, therefore, they thought up a source of discord to separate Muslims from one another. Government officials and heads of Islamic countries must be vigilant.
Some of the politicians of the world of Islam may act as the mouthpiece of the enemies, but we must not make a mistake in this regard.Muslims have to stay together and preserve their unity even when they are supposed to adhere to the divine covenant. 2 Human minds and tongues have expressed numerous things about Be’that which is in fact a vast area, and it will not be possible in the foreseeable future to delineate the aspects of this great event.As time passes and as man goes through numerous experiences and gains a better understanding of the problems and flaws that plague his life, the different aspects of the Holy Prophet's (S) appointment to the divine mission reveal themselves more and more clearly.At the beginning of the Islamic Revolution, the Iranian nation and government officials named the period between these two dates as Unity Week. There will be obstacles and sources of discord, but we must overcome these obstacles. No great aspiration can be achieved in the absence of serious efforts.They wanted Unity Week to be a symbolic representation of unity among Muslims. Unity among Muslims is not an exception: It requires efforts.They sought to drive a wedge between Shia and Sunni Muslims. Two months ago the Muslim Ummah gained another victory - that is, the victory of the Palestinian Resistance Movement over their Zionist enemies in Gaza. What victory can be more impressive than defeating a powerful army that had managed to defeat three powerful armies between 1967and 1973? If ethnicity was dragged into the matters of importance to the world of Islam, the greatest source of discord would be created.What could be more impressive than 22 days of futile efforts of a powerful army against the resisting youth and persistent soldiers of Gaza? This time they could not resort to the Shia-Sunni conflict. They started a debate, arguing that the Palestinian issue was an Arab issue and that non-Arabs had no right to get involved in the issue. When ethnicity is dragged into the matters of importance to the world of Islam, Arabs, Iranians, Turks, Kurds, Indonesians, Malaysians, Pakistanis, and Indians will have to be separate from one another.That was because according to famous traditions narrated by our Sunni brothers, Rabi al-Awwal 12 marks the birth anniversary of the Holy Prophet (S).But according to famous traditions narrated by the Shia, the Holy Prophet's (S) birth anniversary falls on Rabi al-Awwal 17.One external obstacle to unity is the efforts on the part of the enemies of Islam to foment discord. But these goals are being currently pursued more vigorously than ever before. What happened in Lebanon and Palestine can teach us many lessons.The modern means of communication have helped further their goals. Two years ago when the Lebanese resistance forces and the youth of Hezbollah inflicted a humiliating defeat on the Zionist regime, which was considered a victory for the world of Islam, the enemies immediately brought up the issue of Shia and Sunni and started to strengthen religious bias in Lebanon, in the Middle East, and in the entire world of Islam. That was because the Muslim Ummah had almost achieved unity thanks to that great victory.
