Highlighting the Quranic view on interfaith dialogue, Sheikh Abdul Salam Muhammad added, "Such dialogues among religions do not weaken Islamic faith, rather they promote our religion and strengthen our belief since Quranic verses invite Muslims to engage in dialogues."

Highlighting the Quranic view on interfaith dialogue, Sheikh Abdul Salam Muhammad added, "Such dialogues among religions do not weaken Islamic faith, rather they promote our religion and strengthen our belief since Quranic verses invite Muslims to engage in dialogues."

 

The Egyptian professor further elaborated on the high position of Jafari Jurisprudence at Al-Azhar University saying, "The history of comparative studies among Islamic sects goes back to a long time ago at Al-Azhar and this is one the main reasons the activities of Egypt's Organization of Proximity among Religions are greatly promoting in recent years."
