During his sermon for Friday’s prayers in Tahrir Square, prominent Islamic scholar ‎Youssef El-Qaradawi called on all political forces to unite and not to accuse each ‎other of betrayal.‎
‎“The nation’s best interest must come before any other groups' interests,” ‎said Sheikh Essam Khalil, who gave El-Qaradawi’s sermon on his behalf in Tahrir Square. “The youth of ‎the revolution need to keep the spirit of [Tahrir] Square intact.”‎

El-Qaradawi’s sermon also underlined the importance of the fulfilment of the as yet unmet ‎demands of the revolution, including offering medical treatment for those who were ‎injured during the 18-day revolt.‎

Hundreds of thousands from across the political spectrum are now present in Tahrir ‎Square, many of which are Islamists who are seeking to stress the Islamic identity of the ‎country.‎
