Human history has recorded various types of dialogue sessions undertaken by certain promoters of calls with a view to convincing and attracting maximum possible number of their people. Furthermore, revealed books have also recorded many of the dialogues among the Prophets and Messengers and their peoples during which the Holy Prophets (May Allah's peace be upon them) faced patiently difficulties, in consideration of the duty sacredness they shouldered.

In fact, the Holy Qur'an is replete with theses dialogue incidents, which were vividly and interestingly displayed in numerous methods. Theses include the Dialogue of Noah with his people as narrated in the verses 5-20 of  Qur'anic chapter  no.71 ,  that of our father Ibrahim with his people in verses 52-67 of Qur'anic chapter no. ---- and verses 74-82 of Quranic chapter no.------ and verse 258 of Qur'anic chapter no.---, that of Moses (May Allah's peace be on him) with Pharaoh  in verses 18-51 of Qur'anic chapter no.---, and 171-172 of  Qur'anic chapter no.--- and verse 82 of the  Qur'anic chapter no.---

Furthermore, Qur'an mentioned the dialogues of the Prophet (BPUH) who commenced his call responding to the commandment of Allah in this verse (ادْعُ إِلَى سَبِيلِ رَبِّكَ بِالْحِكْمَةِ وَالْمَوْعِظَةِ الْحَسَنَةِ وَجَادِلْهُمْ بِالَّتِي هِيَ أَحْسَنُ) Likewise, the Sirah books covered the dialogue sessions  of the Holy Prophet with the Christians of both Najran and Absenia ( Presently Ethepia), which were followed by dialogue sessions Imams of the Prophet's house with their adversaries within the Muslim Ummah and outside it.

However, contemporary dialogue sessions are held repeatedly inside the Muslim world and outside it, and they were commenced actually in the fifties in the shapes of studies, researches and dialogue sessions, the most prominent of which are the following:

  1. Assembly of gathering Friday , which took place in Baghdad  in 1951 , with the aim of unifying the word of Muslims on the bases of the established Islamic principles together with rejecting innovations. 
  2.  Publication of "Islamic Unity – zhar WA Awrad", a book that underlines the fundamental principles of the Islamic unity and foundations of its values.
  3. Publication of a message titled "Respond the one who calls to Allah", printed in 1954, was in fact a dialogue call with wide range of Iraqis that aims at rejecting sectarian disunity.
  4. Other numerous dialogue sessions that were held among Muslim scholars at Al-Azhar, Sham and Beirut with a view to bringing close together the viewpoints.
  5. Participation in academic symposiums and jurisprudence sessions which have been conducted since 2004 at Islamic Research Complex with the aim of affirming Ummah unity, authentication of its association and discussion of the concepts of Islamic dialogue.

Contemporary fruitful dialogues with the followers of other religions on the bases of Qur'anic call , such as that took place in the Vatican in 1978, in the English city of Leeds in 2002 and in the French city of Lyon in 2005 , in addition to other dialogue sessions in the cities of Milan Napoly.
