MWL Launches Programs to Train Imams in Africa

As it is a crucial tool for promoting coexistence among religions and cultures, and deepening community ties for countries of diversity around the world, the Muslim World League launches programs to train imams in Africa in cooperation with the Jamia Mosque Committee, Kenya.

His Excellency the Kenyan Minister of Defense, Mr. Aden Bare Duale: We extend our appreciation to the MWL as imams play a very important role in shaping societies, advocate for peace, tolerance & coexistence among societies & religious groups. Imams influence extends to political gatherings. Imams need to advocate for tolerance and peace among all religions. They are key to government's efforts to maintain order and stability and to confront terrorism. Our country and economy cannot develop in case of insecurity or societal instability.

Targeting more than 180 participating imams to receive intensive training on dialogue, tolerance, coexistence, citizenship, positive integration in their countries, rejecting hatred and civilizational clash, and other cultural aspects from the content of the Charter of Makkah.
