He said differences of opinion must be handled in a respectful and ethical manner, adding that the seeds of disunity can be dealt with if Muslims were to return to the most basic of teachings by holding steadfast to the Quran and Sunnah (the way of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)).

"The miracle of the Quran, as a whole, highlights the spirit of unity, and among the philosophical choices where unity is concerned is Keluarga Malaysia which is in line with teachings of the Quran and Sunnah,” Yaakob said.

He made the remarks in his speech when officiating at the Southeast Asian Ulama Conference 2022 in Petaling Jaya on Thursday (June 30).

Also in attendance were Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Idris Ahmad and Muslim World League Secretary General Sheikh Muhammad Abdul Karim Al-Issa.

Delegations and religious figures from 17 nations participated in the conference, which is being held for the first time.

Meanwhile, the prime minister also touched on the issue of the derogatory remarks about the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in India, which he described as a provocative act that threatened the harmony of its (India) multi-religious society.

Ismail Sabri said the incident not only triggered protests from Muslims in India, but also from the global community, including Malaysia.

“Throwing insults against Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is an extremely sensitive matter and Muslims are duty-bound to react, but according to demands in the religion’s framework.

“This is to prevent us from getting trapped in the games played by certain quarters who want to provoke animosity among followers of various religions,” he said.

Ismail Sabri also condemned the tyranny of the Zionist regime, which continues to oppress and brutally kill Palestinians without making any effort to stop the killings and bring those responsible to justice.
