Kampala, 20/02/2024 (MAP) – The Mohammed VI Foundation of African Ulema’s section in Uganda is organizing, on February 24-25 in Kampala, an academic symposium on the role of the Foundation in preserving spriritual security in Africa.

The organization of this symposium is part of measures to shed light on the pioneering role played by the Mohammed VI Foundation of African Ulema and its efforts to enhance spiritual security in Africa, in accordance with the vision of its founder and President, HM King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, may God protect Him, says a press release from the Foundation.

One of the loftiest goals set by HM the King for the Foundation is to pool and coordinate the efforts of Muslim religious scholars, in Morocco and in the rest of Africa, to introduce, spread and consolidate the tolerant values of Islam and thus contribute to stability and development in these countries.

The Foundation further noted that this academic symposium, to be moderated by eminent Moroccan scholars and fellow ulema from Uganda, also aims to contribute to enhancing religious and cultural bonds between the two countries, cooperate to strengthen the foundations of the Islamic identity, and enhance spiritual security within Ugandan society, making sure it is open to other religious beliefs.

The symposium will tackle four main topics, namely the efforts of the Mohammed VI Foundation of African Ulema to enhance spiritual security in African countries, the importance of consolidating the common immutable religious values to achieve spiritual security in Uganda and other African countries, the impact of Fiqh and Sufi schools on consolidating the values of security and peace in African societies, and the role of African women religious scholars in establishing spiritual security and promoting stability in society.

Pondering on the outcomes of the Foundation’s action and the impacts achieved through the various scientific and cultural activities that are implemented, « one can clearly see signs that spiritual security is being enhanced and that the concepts and substance of common religious values are being strengthened, » the press release indicates.

This is attested by the fact that the issue of consolidating common religious values is one of the main questions being addressed through various academic activities, be it at the level of the Foundation or at that of its sections. Thus, there has been significant convergence around a number of matters and options which have effectively contributed to ensuring the spiritual security of African Muslim communities.

This has also led to harmonious, interactive societal dialogue which has fostered common ground that helps protect and enhance unity and cohesion and promotes the feeling of belonging as well as that of identity.

These achievements and policy choices are a reflection of the efforts exerted, and the initiatives undertaken by the Foundation, particularly with respect to the mission of placing the Moroccan religious model at the disposal of the sister African countries that share the Kingdom of Morocco’s religious principles and its commitment to immutable spiritual values.

The Foundation points out that it has forty-eight sections covering all parts of the African continent. They all work with the Foundation to promote the values of tolerance and coexistence, thus serving security, stability, and development in African countries, while fully respecting the laws and regulations in force in those countries.
