In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful


O mankind! We created you from a single  (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the  sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things). (Qur’an 49:13)

Message of His Excellency Mamnoon Hussain President of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan

In dynamic societies intellectuals, religious scholars and the academia work in unison like think tanks collectively seeking solutions to challenges faced by the nation. The “Paigham-e-Pakistan” conference under the auspices of the International Islamic University was an excellent effort in which religious scholars from all schools of thought have issued a unanimous “Fatwa” on the issues arising from extremism. I have studied and examined the debates which led to the declaration of the unanimous Fatwa by the Conference. In my opinion, this Fatwa provides a strong base for the stability of a moderate Islamic society. Furthermore, we can seek guidance from this Fatwa for building a national narrative in order to curb extremism in keeping with the golden principles of Islam.

I congratulate the International Islamic University, its faculty and the organisers for the courageous scholarly activity.

Mamnoon Hussain

President Islamic Republic of Pakistan
