RIYADH: The Islamic Fiqh Council, an entity affiliated with the Muslim World League (MWL), held its 23rd session in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, over three days to discuss critical issues facing Muslims and the broader Islamic world. In its concluding statement, the Council condemned abuse and violations against Muslims, deeming these actions a direct attack on Islam.

The Council strongly emphasized the importance of education for women, affirming that Islam encourages education and civilization for all individuals, regardless of gender. It noted that God Almighty has made it a duty for Muslims to seek education within their capacity, with no distinction between men and women. The Council recommended that Muslims worldwide support women’s education and not deprive them of this fundamental right, enabling them to contribute to society effectively.

Furthermore, the Council called on non-Muslim countries to recognize Islamic holidays such as Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha, granting Muslims the right to observe these religious occasions as public holidays. This, it argued, would foster social cohesion, demonstrate religious equality, and promote coexistence.

The Council also urged Saudi citizens and residents to use official charity electronic platforms for paying Zakat, emphasizing the importance of trusted government-recognized portals.

Regarding homosexuality, the Council expressed concern over global campaigns advocating for its legalization, which it described as promoting “sexual aberrations.” It condemned such campaigns, arguing that they violate human and moral values and urged countries to confront these trends.

Dr. Mohammed Al-Issa, Secretary-General of the MWL and Vice President of the Islamic Fiqh Council, thanked the Muslim scholars, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for their ongoing support of Muslims and Islam. He also commended the grand muftis, senior scholars, and researchers who contributed to the success of this Council session.
