Spirituality serves as a powerful bridge in fostering relations between countries to cultivate a deeper sense of understanding, empathy and growth.

Spirituality emphasises principles of forgiveness and harmony, which can inspire leaders to approach international relations with a mind-set of cooperation and mutual respect. As both Pakistan and Iran are muslim countries and are strong believers of Holy Quran Sharif, hence knowing its true essence is also vital.

Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj from Haryana, India has been highlighting in His spiritual discourses about the identity of Supreme Almighty as mentioned in Holy Quran Sharif Surah Furqan 25 Aayat 52 Who is none other than Allah Kabir. 

Also, one should be aware of the ultimate purpose of the Human Soul i.e., attainment of Salvation. And salvation can be achieved by worshipping that Allah Kabir.
