AKKAH: Dr. Muhammad Al-Issa, secretary general of the Muslim World League (MWL) and chairman of the Association of Muslim Scholars, inaugurated the International Holy Qur’an Museum project at the MWL headquarters in Makkah.
Several senior officials of MWL, scholars, and international scientific personalities under the umbrella of MWL attended the opening ceremony.
In his opening speech, Dr. Al-Issa announced the plans to open permanent international branches of the Qur’an museum for non-Muslims in various countries around the world.
“Studies have been carried out by the Agency of the MWL for the Service of the Holy Book and the Sunnah about the idea of this pioneering project, which is the first of its kind, in view of its content and objectives. The launch of this project is from inside the headquarters of MWL in Makkah, where the first revelation of the Holy Qur’an was revealed and Qiblah of world Muslims is situated,” he said.
“The museum, especially its international branches, aims to introduce Qur’anic values and wise rulings contained in the verses of the Holy Scripture. The museum will include the contents of the scientific miracles of the Holy Qur’an, which are supported by authentic scientific facts,” he said while emphasizing that another major highlight of the museum is that it contains definitive clarifications about the most frequent inquiries being made about the Holy Qur’an by non-Muslims.
“This will be through preparing the answers in advance, receiving inquiries later by visitors, or answering through advanced means of communication. The answers will be delivered either instantly by scholars and researchers working in each branch, or through various scientific committees according to the subject of queries,” he clarified.
“We know that there are other exhibitions and museums on the Holy Qur’an, but this museum is unique by its internationalism through its branches around the world. It is also distinguished from others by two other things, namely it’s content and objectives that took into account contemporary transformations, especially its recent records,” he added
