Dar Al Ber Society (DABS), in collaboration with the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai, has distributed thousands of free lectures on the importance of loyalty to the nation and leaders.
The speeches saved on six CDs were gifted to the public in a bid to boost security and stability in the country, support the process of prosperity, progress, and welfare in all walks of life, and fight fanaticism, extremism, and terrorism.
Ali Abdullah bin Zayed, executive director of Dar Al Ber Society, said the free CDs were distributed at universities, government departments, companies, civil society organisations, sports clubs, markets, and shopping centres across the country. "The lectures are aimed to impart and promote tolerant and moderate ideology among members of society."
In his lecture, Dr Shaikh Aziz bin Farhan Al Anzi, manager of Dawa Centre Dubai, talked about the rules of jihad or religious fighting while Dr Shaikh Mohammed bin Ghaith, a preacher with the Sharjah Islamic department, lectured on the serious impact of 'calling people as disbelievers'.
Dr Shaikh Abdullah Al Kamali, manager of the Maktoum Quran memorisation project, elaborated the right techniques needed to handle disorder and riot acts whereas Shaikh Omar Saad, a grand preacher with the department of Islamic affairs and charitable activities in Dubai, explained the inviolability of a Muslim's blood and honour.
Shaikh Khalid Ismael spoke about the blessing of unity and significance of obeying leadership, while Dr Shaikh Mohammed Hashim Taheri explained the due regulations that one should observe when enjoining others to do good.
Dr Mohammed bin Ghaith said calling people as disbelievers is banned in Islam. "Some extremists have killed people based on their incorrect understanding of the real meaning of this issue."
