Muslim World League wraps up rehabilitation sessions focusing on moderation
The Muslim World League wrapped up five rehabilitating sessions for its religious and intellectual cadres, officicals, members and Quran, hadith and fiqh teachers.
The purpose of the sessions is to translate the reality of Islam and to solidify the values of moderation, centrism, tolerance, co-existence, cooperation and understanding diversity and plurality.
The sessions were held as part of the league’s program which the league’s leader Muhammad bin Abdul Karim bin Abdulaziz Al-Issa directed implementing.
International Organization for Relief, Welfare and Development Secretary General Abdulaziz Sarhan said the first session was held in Davao in Philippines and included 30 teachers and supervisors while the second one was held in Kampala, Uganda’s capital, and was attended by 37 academics from the league.
The second session discussed the means and tools to transmit knowledge, focused on clarifying the tolerance of Islam, its moderation and acceptance of others and warned of the threat of extremist intellect.
The third session was held in Katmandu, Nepal’s capital. Khorshid Ahmad, the dean of Jamia Siraj ul-Uloom, delivered an address commending the league’s efforts and training of teachers and supervisors who play a special role in raising citizens’ awareness about the values of amity, tolerance, citizenship and main religious pillars which extremism tried to erase.
