In a news statement issued on Friday, the Senior Advisor to Egypt’s Grand Mufti and Secretary-General of the General Secretariat for Fatwa Authorities Worldwide, Dr. Ibrahim Negm, announced that the international conference, held by Egypt's Dar al-Ifta from October 17-19 titled “The Role of Fatwa in Creating a Stable Society”, came to a close with great success. He added that the General Secretariat is as busy as a bee to implement the conference’s recommendations.
Dr. Negm stated that the Grand Mufti of Egypt, Dr. Shawki Allam decided immediately after the conference to form a number of committees to follow up on the work and set specific timetables. These include working on setting a strategy using the cyberspace to provide muftis worldwide with the necessary training on fatwa issuance, a committee to follow up on the work of monitoring and issuing a global report on the fatwa status worldwide and drafting a global code of ethics to combat the chaos of issuing fatwas.
Dr. Negm concluded that the conference conveyed a very important message signifying that the General Secretariat is determined to build real brides of cooperation with Muslims worldwide and provide scholars with the sound references derived from true authentic teachings of Islam.
