Submitted to International Islamic Conference for Dialogue - Convened at the Muslim World League

30/5/1429H – 2/6/1429h - 4-6/6/2008

Since  dialogue is one of the characteristics of Islamic religion and one of its sagacious means in the promulgation of its message as well as enlightening all people on its noble humane objectives , we find that the Qur'anic methodology encourages people to continue dialogue culture and  consecrate its concept  in the educational , behavioral formation of the Muslim individual.

Likewise, since dialogue today has become necessity and factuality among mankind of its various  levels , as the whole world is witnessing  numerous disorders , particularly the globalization culture , which is confronting us from all directions.

In fact , dialogue comes as a religious duty, ethical way and civilized method. In the respect , the Holy Qur'an has conspicuously projected the numerous dialogue methods with a view to rectifying and consecrating the creed . Additionally, the Sunnah of the Prophet gave due attention to the concern of the Holy Prophet with dialogue in the approach he followed in introducing Islam and its eternal heavenly tenets.

Indeed, the Muslim World League has done well by inviting people to this august conference , which is being held in Makkah Al-Mukarramah , in consultation with the leaders of the Islamic work, scholars , intellectuals all over the world to ratify the principles , conditions and terms which Muslims must follow in holding dialogue sessions with non-Muslims.

Significance of Coordination.

No doubt, coordination among Islamic organizations and commissions working in the fields of Dawah and relief, especially in area of dialogue,  will remain a greater stake and the most difficult challenge before impeding us from achieving our noble common ends focusing on introducing Islam and objectives of its tolerant humane heavenly Message.. This is done via the following vision:

Firstly: Inter-Islamic dialogue: This is performed by the following:

  1. The credit and heritage of Islamic foundations and organizations that has notable presence in dialogue field.
  2. Conduct of symposiums that discuss and evaluate the field experiments in dialogue.
  3. Agreement on upper strategic objective for dialogue
  4.  Specification of principles and bases embraced by the Muslim individual holding the dialogue.
  5. Evaluation of dialogue mechanism and preparation of an international specialized team.

Secondly: Dialogue with others:

  1. Establishment of study center that crystallized the and principles of the creed of the others as well as intellectual , cultural tendencies and overall objectives of dialogue.
  2. Monitoring of the activities of others in dialogue field
  3. Conduct of adequate studies on the means, mechanism and sills of others in dialogue field.
  4. Follow up of media and cultural activities of others.

Thirdly: Creation of a web site for introducing the efforts of coordination in dialogue fields. 

5- Fourthly: Sanctioning of a common budget for a central secretariat general of coordination.
