Kuwait City: Islam is a moderate religion and spreads the message of tolerance even when the religion is itself under attack by the enemies. These views were shared by the speakers of a conference on Islam in the capital city of Kuwait who also highlighted the miracle of Islam that whenever the religion is defamed by the conspirators, it never stopped but the followers of Islam increased more rapidly.
The College of Shariah and Islamic Studies at Kuwait University organized a conference on Islam under the banner of “Insulting Islam and its Sanctities.” The conference was organized within the role of the government program to highlight moderation of Islam, fighting extremism as well as its role in enlightening and informing the Muslim community through studying the phenomenon of insulting Islam and its sanctities.
College Dean, Dr. Mubarak Al-Hajri, delivered a keynote address in the conference and he recalled the numerous cases in his speech in which Islam and its sanctities including the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) were defamed and insulted by the conspirators against Islam.
He categorically said that conspiracies against Islam never stopped its growth but more and more people are embracing Islam as the only true religion in the world which is the clear indication that nothing can harm Islam.
He said, “We know for sure that these abuses cannot harm our religion, our Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) and our holy places as it has been proven throughout history that Islam spreads quickly when its enemies start defaming or insulting the faith.”
Al-Hajri highlighted the most important reasons for holding the conference that it is to show the world the leniency of Islam and stop those who carry out demolition or destructive acts against buildings and public utilities.
He pointed out that such acts distort and undermine the Islamic religion.
He said that the conference aims to address the phenomenon of insulting Islam and its sanctities to know the reasons, motives and objectives as well as to determining the legitimate concept for those acts offensive to Islam and the Muslims.
For his part, Mauritania Mufti Sheikh Ahmad Al-Murabet said that the reasons and motives behind insulting Islam and its sanctities lie in the failure of Muslims to adhere to their religion and Muslims being weak to resist.
He called on Muslims to unite against the enemies of Islam.
