The Muslim World League (the MWL), headquartered in Mecca, presented its new social concept aimed at building bridges of friendship and mutual understanding between different faiths and cultures. The organization posted a video introducing its the new vision and goals on the official website.
“Large distances separate us from Mecca to the whole world, but the goals unite us. Together we stretch out the olive branch to build bridges with all humanity. Let us take the initiative, help each other and strengthen our friendship with different nations, civilizations and cultures. Let us reflect the Islam of peace, moderation and humanity in order to achieve general harmony from which the light of Mecca illuminates the whole world” - these are the basic principles that the League plans to follow in its future activities.
The Muslim World League is considered to be one of the largest and most influential organizations in the Islamic world. Its headquarters are located in Mecca. The MWL unites Muslim theologians, religious, public and political figures from all around the world, including the Russian Federation. The League's forums discuss the most pressing problems that Muslim community in the whole world faces.
In 2019, the MWL Secretary General Dr. Mohammad bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa visited Russia, where he had a rich program, including acquaintance with the country, the spiritual and cultural life of the nations living in Russia and the level of Islamic education. He also held a chain of meetings with governmental officials, religious leaders of Orthodoxy and Islam.
The Muslim World League has signed a cooperation agreement with the Spiritual Assembly of Muslims of Russia, the Russian Orthodox Church, and the Russian Foundation for the Support of Islamic Culture, Science and Education, which led to the implementation of several socially significant projects in the field of supporting true Islam and countering extremism in Russia.
It needs to be mentioned that the MWL took part in scientific and practical conferences that were held in Moscow and Grozny. Both events were aimed at consolidating the efforts of Muslim community to achieve religious enlightenment and eliminating the impact of destructive ideologies in the Russian Federation.
