Kano - The Kano state government in Nigeria organized a seminar that was attended by a number of political, social and cultural leaders and most prominently the state governor Dr. Muhammad Musa.
The Secretary-General of Muslim World League (MWL) Dr. Abdullah Bin Abdul Mohsen Al-Turki gave a speech at the seminar in which he talked about the role of the Muslim World League in the service of Muslims across the world through its councils, bodies, offices and Islamic centers spread all over the world.
He stressed that programs of the MWL are based on the Islamic methodology that is followed by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as it is the country that serves the Two Holy Mosques, and MWL has adopted the Holy Makkah as its headquarters. It may be recalled that the MWL was founded in 1381H in the reign of late King Saud Bin Abdul Aziz.
He pointed out that the MWL spent fifty-three years in the service of Islam on the basis of the Qur'an and Sunnah.
Dr. Turki explained that the MWL is keen to solve the problems between Muslims themselves on one hand, and between Muslims and others through dialogue on the other hand, as it has organized a number of dialogue conferences to implement the initiative of Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz Al- Saud for dialogue.
He pointed out that the leadership in Saudi Arabia considered the dialogue a window to introduce Islam and present its real image and defend its principles that are faced with sinister media campaigns.
He praised the policy of moderation that emerged from the Islamic way of life whereas the country of the Two Holy Mosques attracted the attention of the world as well as the Muslim countries which are keen to work together with Saudi Arabia.
He emphasized that countries of the Muslim world consider Saudi Arabia as leader of Islamic solidarity that emerged strongly in the reign of Late King Faisal Bin Abdul Aziz.
Dr. Turki concluded that the Muslim World League which follows this approach, has received support and backing of the Saudi leaders and will continue its achievements in the service of Islam and Muslims and follow up the issues of Muslims as well as develop Islamic programs to address the external challenges and resolve the internal problems.
On the other hand, the Kano state governor in his speech praised the approach of Saudi Arabia and highlighted the distinct relationship between Saudi Arabia and Nigeria.
He called on the Muslim World League to implement the Islamic and cultural activities in the city of Kano after the outstanding success of the MWL conference, which was held in the city of Sokoto.
