In his Speech at the Islamic Unity Conference: OIC Secretary General Calls for the Formulation of a Comprehensive Islamic Awareness that Includes the Rules of Relationship between the Components of the Muslim Ummah.

Hawzah News Agency – H.E. Hissein Brahim Taha, the Secretary-General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), said that the hosting of the Islamic Unity Conference organized by the World Muslim Communities Council in Abu Dhabi on May 08-09, 2022, confirms the position of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as a global destination of tolerance and coexistence after the proactive steps it has taken by establishing a first-of-its-kind "Ministry of Tolerance" at the global level.

H.E. Hissein Taha indicated that the Conference takes place amid various challenges facing the Islamic Ummah, including stigmatizing Islam. He stressed that this situation requires Muslims, be they individuals, countries, societies, and institutions, to stand united to restore Islamic unity and reinvigorate the actual image of Islam, noting that the Conference coincides with several changes at the international level, including the outbreak of wars and ethnic and sectarian conflicts, which have destabilized various OIC's Member States.

The OIC Secretary-General added that the Islamic world in its entirety is called more than ever before to work together to formulate a comprehensive and collective Islamic awareness that includes the rules, principles, and constants of convergence and disagreement that govern the interrelationship between the various components of the Muslim Ummah.

Hissein Taha pointed out that the OIC believes that sectarian, cultural, and intellectual diversity in Islamic societies should be a factor of enrichment, distinction, and construction rather than a cause for divergence, division, demolition, and sabotage, adding that such a unique diversity should remain a cultural and civilizational asset invested positively to pave the way for unifying visions and creating bridges of solidarity, understanding, and teamwork throughout our great Ummah.
