Participants at the conference on “Imperatives for Muslims in Confronting the Challenges Facing the Ummah’” which was held at the Azhar University, have called upon the international community and organizations to see to it that the New World Order discharges its responsibilities in a fair and just manner, rather than deal in double standards.

They said that Islam is not antagonistic to anyone, nor does it clash with any civilization, and espouses neither aggression nor terrorism, and that it is a faith that calls for integration and interaction, adding that the world does, indeed, need Islamic teachings and the fundamentals of its civilization.

They said that had the Islamic civilization been dominant in today’s world, the world would not have seen wars, and would rather live in peace. The participants also called upon the Muslim scholars to enlighten the Ummah, including the leaders and the led, on the tenets of Islam and its unifying creed, and do away with the subsidiary differences in opinion.

They called upon the Muslims to form a strong scientific and technological base, to be followed by an economic and industrial awakening, and the formation of an Islamic-Arab Market.
