abu dhabi — the general authority of islamic affairs and endowments (awqaf) is set to receive 35 muslim scholars and thinkers to deliver about 800 lectures on all shariah-related topics during the month of ramadan at mosques centres and universities.

the ramadan lectures will enrich people’s knowledge of the topics said mohammed matar al kaabi director-general of the authority during awqaf’s first media briefing in abu dhabi on sunday.

the official also commended the wise leadership for giving directives to promote communication between the federal departments and the society.

“based on a strategy the general authority of islamic affairs and endowments is working on besieging extremist religious rhetoric which abuses islam and offends nations as well as on immunising the society and generations against its dangers and goals which have been exposed in arab and muslim countries.

“extremist ideology has receded thanks to the wise leadership’s authentic approach to islam’s moderation tolerance openness” said al kaabi. — wam
