The Center of Mosque Studies - You witnessed that during Husseini Arbaeen, millions of people gathered. People all over the world bowed down in respect to this great movement which was launched by a group of Muslims - of course, it was not particular to Shias and Sunnis too participated in this rally - and which sent waves throughout the world. They considered it to be the greatest rally in the world. Who had such an opinion? Those who follow Islamic issues.
I deem it necessary to thank the government, people and different tribes of Iraq who made sacrifices, rendered services and showed the greatness of character in this very important test. This year's Arbaeen of Karbala was an astonishing event. The enemies of Islam and Ahlul Bayt vainly thought that they had blocked the path of Muslims. Notice what a great movement was launched. When even bodies stay together, it has such a reflection. If we stay together, if Islamic governments and Muslim nations - whether Shia or Sunni or different denominations of Shia and Sunni - are honest with one another, if they are not suspicious of one another, if they do not insult and have malevolent intentions against one another, notice what will happen in the world and what great dignity will be brought about for Islam. Unity, unity!
