The fifth annual inter-faith dialogue conference kicked off at the Marriott hotel on 7/5/2007
The fifth annual inter-faith dialogue conference, which kicked off at the Marriott hotel on 7/5/2007 come out with an announcement establishing a permanent centre for dialogue of religions in Doha.


A decision to establish the center was taken in the last conference held here in April last year. This year's conference will bring together about 150 religious scholars and leaders from three prominent religions in the world-Islam, Christianity and Judaism.


The conference will give some focus on Islam-Judaism dialogue, side by side with Islam-Christian dialogue, which had been on the agenda in the previous conferences as well.


The three-day event is being hosted by the Shariah Faculty at the Qatar University. The topics for discussion include fundamentalism versus religious dialogue, pluralism, Muslim women in the West and the concept of God in the three religions.


Dr Aysha Al Mannai, Dean of the Shariah Faculty said, the conference will provide equal opportunity for all the participants to express their views, which will be in true spirit of dialogue.


The conference is also expected to come out with a declaration containing proposals for strengthening dialogue and understanding between religions.

DOHA, May 7 (KUNA) -- Peaceful coexistence among religions is an essential issue that should be preserved within a sensible manner, Qatari Shoura Council President Mohammad Al-Khalefi said here Monday.



In an inaugural speech of the Fifth Doha Conference of Inter-Faith Dialogue, which kicked off this evening, Al-Khalefi called for the utilization of civil rights, which would determine the citizen's rights and duties in modern civil societies regardless to religious distinctions.



He noted that the aim of the conference was to find common grounds of tolerance and understanding among Islam, Christianity and Judaism, whereas more efforts and hard work should be exerted to create such matter.



Al-Khalefi drew attention to interlink among the three faiths regarding their fundamental beliefs, noting that all of them were consent to the objective of human happiness.



More than 150 scholars from the Muslim, Christian and Jewish faiths are partaking in the three-day event, themed "The Spiritual Dimension of Faith and Co-existence of Human Societies".



The conference's agenda is also expected to address a number of vital issues such as anti-dialogue radicalism, Islam's image in the West, and the difference of opinions regarding Devine oneness.(
