Scholars from many Arab countries participated in the seminar, from Yemen, Sudan, Mauritania, Jordan, Iraq, and even Pakistan. They discussed Ibn Taymiyah fully, as well as struggles facing the ummah, and Taymiyah’s views on Fiqah and the need for Muslim scholars to face issues such as minority governance, community, and financial society.
Yemen was chosen as the host this year, and Pakistan will host the meeting next year. Dr. Hamouad al-Sa’adi attended the meeting with Dr. Samir al-Shaoubakah, founder of the Imam al-Shafai’i center. He emphasized that the meeting has nothing to do with the National Dialogue Conference, and is a yearly activity that aims to bring back Muslim character under modern conditions
