Islamic scholar Gülen calls on praying for Palestinians, Syrians


Date posted: November 21, 2012

Islamic scholar and prominent Turkish figure Fethullah Gülen has called on his followers to pray for an end to the current tribulations in Syria and Palestine, according to Herkül.org, a website close to the movement.

Gülen, who lives in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania but remains an influential figure on Turkey’s political scene, said the problems in Syria and Palestine could not be solved without God’s blessing but rather required constant prayer.

“There is so much need for [open-hearted and conscious prayer] in the name of the Muslim world,” Gülen said. “You cannot solve the problem in Syria. You cannot solve the problem in Palestine without God’s blessing. That’s why it is a must to focus on praying and entreat it to God.”
