Rabat- King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, inaugurated, on Friday in Rabat, the Mohammed VI Institute for the Training of Imams, Morchidines and Morchidates (religious preachers), a pilot project that will further enhance Morocco’s religious influence and anchor the Kingdom’s attachment to the precepts and fundamentals of Islam.
The new institute, completed for a total cost of 230 million dirhams, will offer training to Imams from Morocco, the Arab world, Africa and Europe.
The institute is, thus, an expression of the supreme role of the institution of the commandership of the faithful as a custodian of an authentic tolerant and open Islam based on the Ashaari doctrine and the Malikite School of jurisprudence.
The new institute is part of an integrated strategy aiming at inculcating to the new generations of Imams and preachers the values of moderate Islam as it has always been practiced in Morocco as a rampart against all forms of extremism.
