The late Imam Khomeini (May Allah sanctify his soul) “Islam has never had a negative opinion about religious minorities and followers of other religions and has always treated them respectfully. The publicity which conveys opposite to this view comes from the enemies of Islam”. “Prophets have not been in conflict with each other and if there appears a difference in their religious rules, this has been due to the needs of the time and specific conditions” “If the teachings of prophets, (Jesus Christ among the Christians, Moses among the Jews, and Holy Prophet among the Muslims), had been fulfilled as they desired, these difficulties which are among the humans everywhere would not have occurred”.
Supreme Leader (May Allah protect him): “This nation (Iranian Muslim nation), today represents a very deep and great civilization namely Islamic civilization which has both a very lofty base in the history and enjoys a very strong strength from the viewpoint of having a very strong rules, worldview, philosophy and a deep-rooted and broad culture, consequently, the Iranian nation can have a dialogue with other civilizations as the representative of this civilization”
Ayatollah Sayed Ebrahim Raisi, Custodian of Astan Quds Razavi: “Hazrat Imam Reza (A.S.) was the founder of dialogue between religions and denominations and in the course of history, Mashhad has had a specific position among the religions”.
