Islam Religion of Peace, Cooperation, Mercy

The Kaaba, in Mecca, Hejaz region, today’s Saudi Arabia, is the center of Islam. Muslims from all over the world gather there to pray in unity.

Al Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed El Tayyeb asserted that Islam is the religion of peace, cooperation and mercy.

El Tayyeb said that Islam believes in freedom of expression and human rights, and recognizes the rights of all human beings.

This came Tuesday during El Tayyeb’s meeting with Italian Senate’s Foreign Policy Commission Pier Ferdinando Casini and his accompanying delegation.

El Tayyeb voiced appreciation to the Italian government and people for siding with the nation against terrorism.

The western world should strictly handle international terrorist issue, El Tayyeb added.

El Tayyeb said that Al Azhar strategy in facing terrorism is based on maintaining the social relations via establishing the Egyptian Family House which aims at eradicating any division among Egyptians.

On the other hand, Casini asserted that Al Azhar has big role in laying down the basis of international peace and security and facing terror.

Casini voiced his country’s desire to cooperate with Al Azhar in the field of preparing moderate imams and preachers to face terrorist groups topped by Daesh.
