Dr. Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Al-Issa said the League tried to enhance the high values of Islam and encouraged a moderate approach among Muslims to defeat extremism, which had actually emerged because of the weakness of the moderate approach. He said a true understanding of Islam came through a holistic view.
Prof. Jimly Asshiddiqie, one of the founding justices of the Constitutional Court in Indonesia, said he was confident that under the leadership of Al-Issa, the Muslim World League would develop and progress.
The new center will be built on land donated by Al Azhar University in Indonesia. It will consist of a 1,000-square-meter conference and seminar area named in honor of Al-Issa, and a 2,000 sq. m. mosque with capacity for 6,000 people.
