(MENAFN -Arab News) Hundreds of delegates are expected to participate in the second international conference entitled ?Islamic Solidarity ? Problems and Solutions,? in Makkah from March 2 to 4 to discuss challenges facing Muslims in the world

Sheikh Abdullah bin Abdul Mohsin Al-Turki, secretary general of the Muslim World League (MWL), said at a press conference in Makkah on Thursday that the aim of the gathering is to urge Muslims to work with their governments for peace and stability in their countries

Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah supports the conference, Al-Turki said

Quoting verses from the Qur'an to support his argument, Al-Turki said that Muslims can only achieve unity if they obey Allah

The three-day meeting would be divided into seven sessions on several topics. Scholars, activists, academics, researchers and leaders of various social and Islamic organizations will participate, he said

?The conference will have prominent scholars from all over the world. They are the best placed to suggest a way out of the current morass and provide guidance,? said the MWL chief



Al-Turki said the participants would discuss ways to tackle problems in various countries including Syria, #Egypt and Palestine, based on Islamic laws

Hassan Al-Ahdal, secretary-general of the MWL's International Islamic #Media Organization, told Arab News: ?The unity of the Muslim ummah is important. We must adhere to Islamic values and remain united and rock solid in the face of all crises, whether political or social.

"The conference aims to provide a wide platform for scholars to gather and exchange ideas on how the ummah could be served and remain united in the face of various crises.

He said Muslims must rise from their "complacency" to play an active role in their communities. ?I hope this conference will pave the way for peace in Muslim countries and across the globe,? he said.
