RNA – In the framework of the expansion of the culture of love, the peaceful coexistence of heavenly religions and the strengthening of social solidarity, a conference entitled “Love, Tolerance and Its Role in Building Societies” was held in the presence of Shaykh Muhammad-Mukhtar Jumu’ah, the Egyptian Minister of Endowments, in the country’s northern al-Sharqiyah Governorate.
At this conference, Egyptian religious and political figures, such as Shaykh Jumu’ah and Pope Tawadros II, the Pope of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, emphasized the need to strengthen the convergence of denominations and heavenly religions.
Shaykh Jumu’ah, the speaker of the conference, pointed to the formation of global civilization, and stated, “Heavenly religions have been revealed to promote peace, friendship, the promotion of peaceful coexistence, the promotion of religious toleration and the spirit of national unity.”
The Egyptian Minister of Endowments added, “With the solidarity of religions, places of worship, such as mosques and churches, will be protected from dangers. The strengthening of the national spirit will lead to the further engagement of the managers of church and mosques, while without the unity of the world, violence will be encountered.”
He stressed the necessity of avoiding the occurrence of ethnic, religious and tribal strife and added that the conflict between the heavenly religions would only lead to the destruction of religion and shari’ah (religious law) because the use of language of force, threat and destruction would not provide a way for the approximation of religions.
At the end of his speech, Shaykh Jumu’ah referred to the meeting between Shaykh Ahmad al-Tayyib, the Grand Imam of al-Azhar, and Pope Tawadros II and said, “The intersection of humanity, in the light of the unprecedented interaction of the heavenly religions, has provided a suitable platform for understanding the truth of religion and the teachings of the heavenly religions.”
