Madina symposium discusses Islam’s message of moderation


MADINAH: The moderate nature of Islam was highlighted during a two-day symposium held at the King Salman International Conference Center under the patronage of King Salman.

Researchers from Arab and Islamic countries presented 29 studies and working papers during the event, which was titled “Religious efforts exerted at the Prophet’s Mosque during the Saudi era.”

“The speakers highlighted Islam’s moderation in the different axes of their studies. They stressed the important role of the Prophet’s Mosque in caring for Qur’an-related sciences and the Arabic language,” said Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sudais, the president of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, which organized the event in partnership with the Naif bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud International Prize for the Prophetic Sunnah and Contemporary Islamic Studies.
“This comes as part of the Kingdom’s efforts to develop and serve the Two Holy Mosques and their visitors. The care provided by the Kingdom is not limited to sensory care but it also includes moral care that seeks to promote beneficial sciences and true knowledge.”
Al-Sudais added that the symposium was noble in its objectives, blessed in its message, outstanding in its research and great in its recommendations. He also thanked the King and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for their support.
