Dispel misconceptions against Islam - Mohammad

posted on 09/02/2006: 787 views



His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, yesterday received Ekmal Al Deen Ihsanoglu, Secretary-General of the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC). During the meeting, Islamic issues and situations were discussed, as well as the way to develop a unified stand for all Islamic countries that can result in coordination and solidarity in the face of challenges.



They also discussed the need to open up communication channels with different cultures, especially to deal with the misunderstanding that some countries have about the truth and principles of Islam, the religion of love and peace. Sheikh Mohammad stre-ssed the importance of dialogue in a civilised and convincing way between leaderships and Islamic authorities, and their counterparts in other religions, until the mutual conviction that coexistence and human communication is the common factor of all religions and people is reached.



He said all sides must consider the sensibilities of other parties, especially with regard to religious beliefs, without which Muslims will lose their distinct entity. Sheikh Mohammad called upon the OIC to bear its responsibilities and carry on its duties towards the prejudiced campaigns against Islam, by organising international discussion forums and conferences to define Islam and explain its principles, which are based on forgiveness, coexistence, and human brotherhood between all peoples.



Ihsanoglu on his part expressed the OIC's appreciation for the UAE's supportive stands towards just Islamic causes, and its encouragement of dialogue between various cultures on a base of respect, trust and brotherhood. Sheikh Mohammad later received Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Sheikh Ahmad Bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, the outgoing Bahraini Ambassador, who came to bid Sheikh Mohammad farewell at the end of his tenure.
