Derian: Islam message of mercy, coexistence

Mufti of the Lebanese Republic, Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian, on Tuesday urged the Islamic world to bolster its role in fighting Islamophobia by means of adopting scientific awareness programs that set a real understanding of Islam, the religion of mercy and coexistence, in the Western world.

The Sheikh’s words came in an address he gave while chairing a session within the frame of the “First International Conference” on the role of Muftis in the world, currently taking place in Egypt.

“The best way to fight Islamophobia is to shine light on the teachings of Islam, which call on the peoples of the world to interact as members of a united humanitarian family,” he added.
