King Abdullah tells preachers to reach out to other communities


MAKKAH: Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah urged Islamic scholars and preachers on Monday to reach out to non-Muslim communities and said the message of Islam came addressing the whole humanity, not a particular community.

“We have to open up to other communities because the message of Islam does not address a particular community excluding others. In fact, it is a message for the whole humanity,” the king said in his opening speech at the 12th Makkah conference.

The king’s speech was read out by Makkah Gov. Prince Khaled Al-Faisal. The three-day conference is organized by the Muslim World League.

King Abdullah emphasized the duty of Muslims to spread the message of Islam all over the world. “Despite the material progress achieved by man, he is still suffering from a lack of spirituality,” he said while emphasizing the importance of dawa work.

In his keynote speech, King Abdullah said Islam is a comprehensive religion of peace and mercy. “The message of Islam explains how man and woman on this earth should live, with all its details.”

The king continued: “Islam alone presents a complete way of life based on divine values and presents a balanced approach toward life. It can save them from the present dilemma while protecting their material achievements.”
