He asked the representatives of the Council as well as the Muslim scholars and preachers in Gabon to prepare a new strategy for spreading (da’wah) and Islamic culture based on the principles of Islamic moderation which can protect the Muslims especially youth from deviation and extremism and also protect them from straying away from the right bath.
The Secretary-General urged the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs to devise a strategy of Da’wah in Gabon, which should be implemented by Muslim scholars, preachers and the MWL office in Gabon. This strategy should focus on good introduction of Islam and preparation of Muslim scholars and preachers accordingly.
Dr. Al-Turki explained that MWL established a number of Islamic institutions for the purpose of introducing da’wah and the Islamic culture, Like the International Association of Muslim Scholars, World Wide Association for Introducing Islam, International Association for New Muslims, the Global Commission for Introducing the Messenger and the Holy Qur’an Memorization International (HQMI).
Dr. Al-Turki called upon the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs in Gabon to cooperate with these institutions according to their Da’wah and cultural fields of expertise, stressing that the MWL is keen to hold joint cultural activities with the Islamic institutions, cultural centers and universities in Gabon and other countries of Africa.
The Special Adviser to the President of Gabon, Dr. Ali Akbar Aununga delivered a speech in which he said that Islam is a growing religion in Gabon, and it needs two things to flourish and grow even more. These are establishment of an Islamic center similar to Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Center in Niger and holding of training sessions for imams and preachers under the supervision of mosques to spread the Islamic Da’wah in Gabon.
The Chairman of the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs addressed the gathering and highlighted the achievements of the Council in serving Islam and looking after the affairs of Muslims. He expressed his desire to cooperate with the MWL and its affiliated bodies in organizing Islamic conferences and seminars especially conferences that discuss the issues of spreading the true principles of Islam and highlight its principles of cooperation, coexistence security and peace in Islamic societies.
