The Forum attempts to clarify to the world that Islam is a religion of peace and justice. By convening intellectuals and leading thinkers from around the world, the Forum also attempts to extinguish burning disputes. The Forum’s various events attracted thousands of scholars and intellectuals and achieved significant success in terms of the prestigious attendance and academic outcomes to promote the culture of peace. It also garnered the attention of thinkers and decision-makers in the Islamic and Western worlds, and earned the recognition of numerous international entities and awards.
