Islamic Solidarity in Infra-National Thoughts of Imam Khomeini
Exchange of fundamental issues of the Islam during huge gathering of pilgrims to the sacred House of God
It is necessary for you, the nation of Islam, who for the purpose of performing the hajj ceremonies, have gathered here at the land of revelation to use this opportunity to ponder upon a solution. In solving the problems of the Muslims, you must exchange views and have mutual understanding. You should bear it in mind that this huge gathering, which takes place annually here at this sacred land at the command of God, the Exalted, obliges you, Muslim nations, to struggle for the realization of the sacred goals of Islam and the sublime objectives of the pure shari‘ah along the path of advancement and exaltation of the Muslims, and the unity and solidarity of the Islamic society. In the way toward independence and uprooting the cancer of imperialism, you must be in unison and concordant in view. Listen to the sufferings of the Muslim nations from the tongues of the people of each country and in solving their problems, do not spare any kind of actions.
Think about the poor and destitute of the Muslim countries. Think of a remedy for the liberation of the Islamic land of Palestine from the clutches of Zionism, the obstinate enemy of Islam and humanity. Do not neglect assisting and cooperating with the self-sacrificing men who are fighting for the liberation of Palestine.
In a bid to awaken the nations, it is necessary for the intellectuals and scholars who are participating in this gathering, from whichever country they may be, to issue wellreasoned out statements along with the exchange of views, to distribute them in the land of revelation among the Muslim societies, and to disseminate the same upon their return to their respective countries. In those statements they should call upon the heads of Muslim countries to set before their eyes the goals of Islam, to set aside their differences, and think of a solution for the deliverance from the clutches of imperialism… It is necessary for the Muslim nations… In this sacred gathering of hajj exchange views firstly, on fundamentals issues of Islam and secondly, on the particular issues of the Muslim countries such as those happening inside the countries to their Muslim brothers through the hands of imperialists and their agents. In this sacred congregation the populace of every country must give a report of their nation’s sufferings to the Muslims of the world.

Triumph as a sweet fruit of the Muslims’ unity
Q: [What message does Your Eminence Ayatullah have for Muslims in general, and the Muslims of Lebanon and Palestine in particular, especially after Lebanon’s recent events?]
A: My message for all Muslims is that, considering all the facilities and vast populations that the Muslims have, and the numerous countries they have under their control and power, they unite. If they should unite, none of the superpowers can have the power to encroach upon them. All the miseries of the Muslims are because of their disunity. Muslim nations must get together and force the governments to stop their disunity as well as their protection of the foreigners’ interests.

Let put the differences aside so they never think to dominate My message for the Arab and Muslim brothers is: let us put the differences aside and shake hands of brotherhood and shoulder-to-shoulder and unanimously with other non-Arab, Muslim brothers accept Islam as the only support. Having the immeasurable material resources and more important than them, the divine, intellectual resources, that is, Islam, you can be a force that the superpowers will never think to dominate and will not attack you from the left and right flanks, plundering everything of yours.
