Rabat — HM King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, accompanied by HRH Prince Moulay Rachid, chaired, on Thursday at the Royal Palace of Rabat, a new religious lecture of the holy month of Ramadan.
The lecture was given by Mohammed Al Ahmadi Abou an Nour, former Egyptian Endowments Minister and member of the Islamic Research Assembly of the Republic of Egypt, under the theme "The ethics of dialogue with the other" in light of the Quranic verse "Speak fair to the people."
The speaker started his talks by referring to the verses of Suras of Al Houjourate and Annissaa, speaking about the creation of human beings from a common origin namely Adam and Eve from whom God has made various tribes and peoples called on to know and to interact positively to settle in the earth and build civilizations.
This purpose, the speaker said, is the opposite of what some ideologues advocate who preach confrontation, rivalry and conflict to impose a civilizational model given the dispossession of rights of others, the occupation of its territories, and denial of human rights.
From this oneness of origin stems the propensity of man to cultivate cohesion, communion, compassion and coexistence with others, in terms of consanguinity, which recommends precisely the Sura of Annissaa, noted the speaker.
Professor Mohammed Abu Al Ahmadi An Nur recalled in this context, the holding the first international forum on dialogue in Lebanon in 2001, followed by a second in Italy in 2002, which brought together leaders from different religions who pleaded, in particular, for the banishment of terrorism in the name of any religion whatsoever and advocated coexistence, solidarity, peace and education for mutual respect.
After explaining the concept of dialogue that involves the ability to question its assumptions and to join the opinion of the other, since it is based, and makes the distinction between dialogue and debate, the speaker noted that dialogue assumes from that involves in it the prerequisites of science and knowledge and qualities that have this task in order to uphold the truth and relevance of ideas regardless of the holder.
After this lecture, HM the King was greeted by several Islamic figures and scholars coming from various parts of the World.
The Minister of Endowments and Islamic Affairs, Ahmed Toufiq, presented to HM the King, Commander of the Faithful, the recording of the holy book "Al- Moushaf Al-Mohammadi" recited according to the reading of Warsh from Nafii by Mohamed Ait Lahssen Ouali. It was recorded on audio CDs and MP3.
Each year, the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs records the Holy Quran in the voice of one or more Quran reciters, as a sign of encouragement to the spread of the Holy Book, under the instructions of HM King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful.
