al-Azar is a center of gravity.
That there is conflict and controversy concerning this center of gravity is an item of analytic interest and perhaps analytic importance.
On the other hand, this could be simply rhetoric by the Shias against an age old adversary.

((It should be remembered that al-Azhar is still a power force.))
Egyptian Shia cleric: "Today, al-Azhar is nothing except a name"
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Egyptian Shia cleric "Abdul Wali Nasr", who Has participated in the "Spring of Martyrdom" festival in Karbala, stated: "Today, al-Azhar is nothing except a name."
"Since al-Azhar was attacked by Salafists and Muslim Brotherhood, just a name, form and building remains of the school," he added in his speech.
"Imam Hussein (PBUH), is the key of Sacrifice, honor and decency and indeed he is like a rescue ship, as Prophet Mohammed (SAW) said: My Ahlul-Bayt are like the Ark of Noah. Whoever embarked in it was saved, and whoever turned away from it was perished." Abdul Wali Nasr added at the end.
