All Islamic countries should have a committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice (Haia), which would ensure correct practices among Muslims. Islamic countries would benefit from having such a body and could take advantage of the Kingdom’s experience in this field.
Participants in a conference that the Prince Naif bin Abdul Aziz Chair for the Study of the Haia at the Islamic University organized, in collaboration with the General Presidency of the Haia, suggested this.
They called to forge partnerships between these Haia committees and media organizations, to strengthen relationships within the community and promote a virtuous culture according to the Qur’an and Sharia law.
At the end of the conference on Monday, the participants recommended the need to highlight the attributes of the Kingdom’s Haia committee through various media channels, as a model for other Muslim societies.
They requested that preachers, mentors, educators and media employees would stress the awareness among community members of the permanent need of a committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, as it provides a permanent blessing of security and stability.
