Seyyed Hossein is the only Muslim to be included in the Library of Living Philosophers. He is the author of 50 books and over 500 articles.
During the interview, he expressed his love for Pakistan, saying he treated Pakistan as his own country and reminded the audience of his interactions and associations with Pakistan.
In his message to Muslim leaders across the globe, the Muslim scholar said we must try to preserve our Islamic heritage, our identity, lifestyle, and ethical values.
“Starting from Pakistani Prime Minister, Imran Khan, there is a revival of interest in Sufism on a practical and intellectual level. I believe that the first duty of all Muslim countries, especially Pakistan, which was created for the sake of Islam, is to preserve our Islamic heritage, which includes our identity, our religious life, and ethical standards.”
He concluded by advising the local scholars and intellectuals to become intellectuals of their own society instead of mirroring the intellectuals in the west.
