makramSenior Iranian jurisprudent issued a message to the 26th international Muslim Unity Conference and urged for comparative study of Islamic fiq’h (Islamic Jurisprudence) for more proximity among different Islamic denominations.

Grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi, senior Shia jurisprudent in a message highlighted comparative fiq’h (Islamic Jurisprudence) as a way for realization of proximity saying that the way would highlight the commonalities of the denominations for a clearer comparison between the viewpoints.

He said,” Once we launch a comparative study of the views of the different denominations, then sharia views will be subject to discussion, the similarities and differences will be easily seen and a better judgment of the scholars will be possible.”

He called the study as the solution for more proximity among different Islamic schools of thought and noted that as the reason why Shia scholars since long have been writing comparative books on Islamic Sharia.

He announced that a group of scholars at Qom Seminary have been cooperating to write a comparative encyclopedia of fiq’h and hope to finish the final volumes soon.

Still in another part of his message he congratulated Muslim Unity Week and noted, “The fact is that we have never been in a higher need of Muslim unity than today.” And added,” Unfortunately the present arena of the world is a full battlefield when the US, Europe and Israel as well as their puppet countries have joined to prevent the promotion of Islam and its rule over the Middle East.”

Prominent jurisprudent underscored the role of Muslim scholars and said the initiative moves of the World Forum for Proximity of Islamic Schools of Thought are quite brilliant for awakening the doors of happiness.

This message was read by the representative of grand Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi in the general assembly of the 26th international Islamic Unity Conference opened on Sunday 27th, 2013.
