Excerpts from the address of His Eminence Sheikh Abdel Latif Deriane (The Grand Mufti of Lebanon)
The sentiment of the Muslim Ummah for meeting and cooperation is a logical and realistic desire, as there is an urgent need and necessity to empower the Ummah to preserve its unity and face the challenges.
Conference participants voiced the need for the unity of the Ummah, their call is honest and Muslims from all over the world must honor their call.
One of the factors that adversely affected Islamic unity is the horrendous actions of extremists against the Muslim community, and the violence they have practiced in Muslim countries; causing great damage, and spreading terror across the world.
We must work together to face the challenges adversely affecting Islamic unity, the dangers of labeling and exclusion; especially in Makkah and in Saudi Arabia; the Kingdom of faith, dignity, safety, honor and benevolence.
