Secretary General of the Muslim World League Sheikh Dr. Muhammad bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa attended as a guest of honor at the celebration of Abdullah bin Bader Al-Swaidan’s Award for Excellence under the auspices of Prince of the Eastern province, His Royal Highness Prince Saud bin Nayef.
Dr. Al-Issa delivered a word on this occasion in which he stressed the importance of spreading awareness among youth regarding meanings and purposes of the provisions of the Islamic shariah with a view to confronting the allegations, interpretations and suspicions of extremism. He added that Al-Swaidan’s Award for Excellence is a clear-cut example of caring for young people and immunizing them against the extremist thinking that rejects dialogue and coexistence.
The Secretary General extended gratitude to the Emir of the Eastern Region for sponsoring the award and his interest in the people of the region under directives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and his Crown Prince.
It is worth mentioning that Al-Swaidan’s Award for Excellence is one of the largest awards in the Kingdom and more than 115000 young men and women take part in the award. The Award of Excellence tackles several branches, foremost of which are the Holy Quran and Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) Sunna.
