Muslims need to talk more with each other: Bajrami

TEHRAN, Nov. 27 (MNA) – Muiadin Bajrami, Manager of Foundation Gnosa in Macedonia, is of the opinion that Shia and Sunni scholars need to talk more with each other to achieve Islamic unity.

Touching upon the importance of unity among Ummah, he said, “Those who think that Sunni is more important than Shia or vice versa would not help.”

Bajrami made the remarks in an exclusive interview with Mehr News Agency on Monday on the sideline of the 32nd Islamic Unity Conference in Tehran.

Here is the full text of the interview:

What do you think of this conference in general and how do you evaluate it?

I believe that this conference is very good for the future. Maybe this is the first step to gather important people to talk about the unity of Ummah [Muslim community]. The other point is about the problems of Muslims in the world. I believe that the conference should question some wider issues as well, not only for the Middle East. We are always talking about Palestine, Yemen, Syria, and Iraq. This is ok, I’m sure, but it’s important to talk about the problems of Muslims living in Balkans and other parts of the world. It’s crucial to hear the people who have come here from different areas that are never heard, to see what their problems are and what are the solutions.

But I think the organizer here is putting his best effort to gather all these people and I’m so pleased with all he is doing here and I pray to Allah to give him much more power to improve the event more and more.

What are the main barriers in route to uniting Muslims?

We need to talk more. Important people of each country, either Shia or Sunni, should talk with each other. Those who think that Sunni is more important than Shia or vice versa would not help. We should see our main aim as an Islamic Ummah. But I think this step taken here will improve significantly in the future to unite Muslim countries.

So you are hopeful about the unity.

No, I’m 100 percent sure. I’m Shia and I believe in the coming of Imam Mahdi. I wish that this would happen as soon as possible and we would live in that time, inshallah.
