The Address of Ayatollah Mohammad Hussein Al-Ansari to the Public Inter-Faith Gathering in St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney, which was delivered on his behalf

نص خطاب آية الله الشيخ محمد حسين الانصاري  للتجمع الجماهيري المشترك للاديان في كاتدرائية القديسة ماري في سيدني، الذي تلي بالنيابة عنه

In the name of God, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.

Peace be upon Mohammad, his progeny and all Prophets and holy patrons.

Peace be upon you all.

People are of two kinds: either your brother in religion, or your equal in humanity.

This is a time-less statement of Imam Ali, the successor of Prophet Mohammad who was a practical manifestation of real humanity and walked in the steps of great prophets; through which we are coming here today to attend this honourable gathering to put these words into action.

We are here carrying a load of Godly mercy that those noble characters have shared with all humanity.

We pray to His Almighty to accept our deeds and to bless our good Australia with prosperity and well-being.

I have always said and repeat it now that if other countries raise the name of freedom or its statue, here in Australia freedom itself exists.

We pray to His Almighty to allow us to use this freedom positively for our common benefits. Not to abuse it negatively so that tragic events such as this one unleash. A tragedy that has filled all our hearts with sadness and sorrow.

We pray to His Almighty to bless Katrina Dawson and Tori Johnson as well as all innocent victims of crimes worldwide.

We also pray for their families and all of us to be bestowed by patience and consolation.

And pray for the fast recovery of the injured and affected people.

May we all be united to spread justice and peace.

Thank you all.


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

والصلاة والسلام على سيدنا محمد وآله الطيبين وجميع الانبياء والمرسلين وعباد الله الصالحين

السلام عليكم

الناس صنفان اما اخ لك في الدين او نظير لك بالخلق.

بهذا القول الخالد للامام علي، وصي النبي محمد الذي كان التجلي العملي للانسانية الحقيقية على خطى الانبياء العظام.

من هذا القول الخالد جئنا لنحضر هذا التجمع المبارك لنجسدهُ عملاً حاملين مانحمل من تلك الرحمه الإلهية التي جاء بها كل هؤلاء المخلصين للناس جميعاً ، سائلين المولى عزوجل ان يتقبل اعمالنا بأحسن القبول راجين منه ان يمّن على استراليا هذا البلد الطيب بالنعمة والخير. 

وقد قلت وأكررها ان كان في البلدان الاخر اسم الحرية او تمثالها مرفوعاً فهنا في استراليا الحرية نفسها. 

نسأله تعالى ان يجعلها في صالحنا إيجاباً لا ان نستغلها سلباً لتكون هذهِ المأساة التي ادخلت الحزن على قلوبنا جميعاً. 

فنسأل الله تعالى ان يرحم كاترينا داوسن و توري جونسن وكل ضحايا الاجرام في العالم ويلهم ذويهم الصبر والسلوان ويلهمنا جميعاً ذلك أيضاً وان يشافي الجرحى ويوحد صفوفنا لنشر العدل ونشر السلام. 


Statement of Unity – NSW Religious Leaders Meeting behalf

Statement of Unity - Religious Leaders



Sydney faced an unprecedented challenge that shocked Australia and the world earlier in the week that saw the loss of two innocent Australians and others injured during the criminal acts in the Sydney CBD. During the crisis, there was constant communication between us and leaders of various faiths, the Premier of New South Wales, Ministers of Parliament and the Commissioner of NSW Police to address the crisis in solidarity and come to a common point on a way forward.

We, together, agreed to hold a common public inter-faith gathering to mourn the loss of these innocent Australians as well as to unify our stance and promote peace and harmony.

All brothers and sisters are invited to this public inter-faith gathering:

Where: St Mary’s Cathedral – St Marys Road – Sydney CBD

When: Friday 19th of December at 9am to 10am

Office of Ayatollah Al-Ansari – Sydney

 في اثناء اللحظات العصيبة التي مر بها كل مواطن في استراليا تمت اتصالات واجتماعات عدة بيننا وبين قادة الاديان في استراليا ورئيس حكومة نيو ساوث ويلز ووزراءه ورئيس شرطة الولاية لحل هذه الازمة الشديدة.

وتفاديا لتداعياتها قررنا جميعا ان يكون هناك تجمع جماهيري مشتركا فعلى من يحب ان يشارك ابناء وطنه الحضور لتوحيد الكلمة ونشر الامان.

تفاصيل التجمع اعلاه.

We pay our condolences to all our fellow Australians, especially the families of the innocent victims of this criminal attack. We also pray for the fast recovery of the injured victims

Testing times like these remind us of the value of unity and national solidarity in protecting Australia from all evil and the need to promote social harmony and peace

Criminal acts have no place in any faith or country

Office of Ayatollah Al-Ansari



We pray deeply and wholeheartedly for the innocent civilian hostages in Sydney for their immediate and safe release. We, similarly, ask all people to join us in their prayer.

This crisis reminds us that we all, from all faiths and backgrounds, should unite as Australians to oppose such radicalism and build a peaceful and harmonious society
