Grand Imam of al-Azhar Ahmed el-Tayyeb received on Tuesday 12/2/2013 a delegation, which included representatives of several institutions, Islamic associations and charities, especially the Islamic Center in Ireland, headed by Secretary-General of the European Council for Fatwa and Research.
The delegation also comprised Imam of the Islamic Center Sheikh Hussein Halawa and Imam of old Dublin Mosque Sheikh Yahya Mohamed Hussein.
El-Tayyeb stressed the significant role that must be played by the European Council in order to guarantee peace and tranquility for Muslim communities to enable them to integrate into the society and coexist with others regardless of differences in color, gender or religion that should never be an obstacle to social peace.
On the other hand, el-Tayyeb held talks with a delegation from Cambridge University on means of boosting joint cooperation.
The talks focused on enhancing cooperation between the two bodies in the domains of English language education for al-Azhar graduates and preachers.
The two sides also took up honing the linguistic skills of al-Azhar preachers, especially those delegated to foreign countries.
