Doha 4th interfaith conference discusses the formation of human being the logo of Doha 4th interfaith conference The state of Qatar, believing in the justice between the peoples of the world and based on God's words in the Holly Koran "O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other", has realized that knowing each other can be achieved only by dialogue, discussion and understanding about what is agreed upon and overlook what is not agreed upon. Interfaith dialogue falls into this context in terms of benefit for all religious people either in their relationships with each other or with the other people of other religions. In this respect, Qatar was queen on organizing the interfaith dialogue conference since 2003 under the title "the Islamic-Christian Dialogue". Qatar is organizing the 4th interfaith dialogue conference this year for the fourth successive time between 25 to 26 April under the title "the role of faiths in the formation of the human beings." The interfaith dialogue focuses on several themes as: religions and civil rights, freedom of expression and the religious sanctities, religion, woman and the family, religious pluralism and respect for others, religions and protection of the environment, religion and the strengthening of moral values, religion and globalization, and religion and the contemporary global developments. The 4th interfaith conference aims at bringing out the effectiveness of religions in order to establish the human civilization. It reflects on of the orientations of Qatar in the world peace and dialogue between civilizations under the leadership of H.H. the emir of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani. The conference aims at enhancing civilization and cultural approach between the peoples by rejecting the tendencies and conflicts of some thinkers who call for clash of civilizations and religions. The conference aims at narrowing the gap between faiths and civilizations to achieve a peace and understanding between the peoples as well as demonstrating the moderate vision of faiths away from extremism and controversial issues that touches faiths. The third interfaith dialogue conference was held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Emir of Qatar during the period of June 29-30 2005. The conference discussed many papers divided on representatives of the faiths which are 8 Islamic papers, 8 Christian papers and 4 Jewish papers. They discussed themes such as religion's perception of man, his dignity, freedom and rights as creator of civilization and its object, highlighting common religious values that contribute to the establishment, enforcement and development of civilization such as: religion's respect for human reason as the instrument for scientific research and as a way to civilization advancement, and realistic stance of religions in combating superstitions and myths and openness, intercommunication and human cooperation. The success of the three previous conferences confirms the leading role of Qatar in supporting and enhancing cooperation between faiths and civilizations. It is worth mentioning that Qatar hosted last February the Second Alliance of Civilizations (AOC) meeting of the High-Level Group (HLG). ©Foreign Information Agency of the State of Qatar,
