posted on 12/04/2012: 2308 views



The Dubai International Peace Convention is kicking off its second edition today, Thursday 12th April and will continue until Saturday, April 14th. This event is being held under the patronage of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The objective of the convention is to share ideas and solutions that help to cultivate a peaceful world, in which the concepts of equality and moderation urged by the Islamic religion are respected. It is also envisioned that this will enhance religious understanding within an environment characterised by mutual respect. This humanitarian drive will be fuelled by tolerance and benefit all the world's religions, not just Islam.

The convention will host a group of internationally-respected figures who have upheld the Islamic faith through their participation in various lectures, inter-faith dialogues and activities. They are all united under one goal: to encourage pure thought that is not tainted by any fallacies, mistrust or misconceptions of any kind. This is therefore a fantastic opportunity to spread liberal thoughts and proposals.

Among the internationally-known names at this conference are Sheikh Abdul Rahman Sudais, Grand Imam of the Grand Mosque; and Sheikh Mashary, guest of honour at the convention. They will lead worshipers in prayer on Friday, April 13th.

Other speakers include Dr Zakir Naik, one of the most prominent scholars of Islam and Comparative Religion. He will be joined by great orators like Sheikh Yusuf Estes, Sheikh Abdur Raheem Green, Sheikh Tawfiq Chowdhury, Sheikh Mohammad Sharif, Sheikh Abdul Bari Yahya, Sheikh Hussein Yee, and acclaimed lawyer Mayan Kutty Mather, as well as other leading humanitarians and thinkers.

The convention offers an attractive range of lectures, discussions and Question and Answer segments. These lectures cover topics such as "Islam is a religion of peace", "One World, One Way, One God," and many other thought-provoking topics. These will shed more light on the relationship between religion and science, as well as the relationships between the different religions themselves.

The Dubai International Peace Convention will offer a diverse range of Islamic products, giving Muslims an alternative for certain products currently in circulation. Islam teaches that Allah loves children and the youth, and therefore there will be a Kids' Corner dedicated for children to utilise all the educational and recreational activities that nourish their minds and bodies, while their parents are inspired by the discussions at the convention. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
