The Abu Dhabi Authority of Culture and Heritage (ADACH), the Ministry of Health, the Red Crescent Authority, and 18 other government and private institutions will host at least one of the scholars in an attempt to reach the widest audience possible.

Two of the scholars, Shaikh Abd Al Samad Al Samadani and Shaikh Mohammed Mosaliyar from India would be delivering the lectures in Urdu, while the rest of the lectures would be in Arabic.

Among the scholars coming to the country are Dr Ali Abd Al Waham, the Mufti (religious authority) of Egypt, and Shaikh Ahmed Badr Aldin Hasoon, the Mufti of Syria.

The General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowments, which is hosting the scholars, will also be officially launching a hotline for giving fatwas (Islamic rulings) on Thursday, which will be in Arabic, English and Urdu.
