Abu Dhabi: Members of a Council of high-ranking Muslim scholars flew from Abu Dhabi to the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, to provide support to fellow scholars in the city. Led by the Grand Imam of Al Azhar, Sheikh Ahmed El Tayeb, the Muslim Council of Elders will share ideas with hundreds of Indonesian scholars on how to highlight the true moderate essence of Islam to the masses. The initiative follows projects carried out by the Council since its inception in Abu Dhabi in July 2014, such as sending peace envoys to areas of conflict. The members are 14 Islamic experts and scholars who aim to fight extremism and promote peace. The elders will also share ideas and expertise with heads of Islamic societies and students at universities and institutes.
