More Details On Qaradawi Forum


Further information is available about the “Forum of Imam Qaradawi Forum” recently held in Doha. According to Islam Online, the publication owned by Qaradawi, a number of new projects were created at the forum which include an annual prize for scholars who contribute to keeping Islam “at pace with today’s world” and two waqfs (Islamic foundations) whose endowments will fund students studying Shari`ah subjects in Muslim countries and expatriate students studying at the Cairo-based Al-Azhar Al-Sharif. Also established were various projects to study Qaradawi’s works and a multi-media library for Qaradawi’s works to translate them into foreign languages “so that westerners can know untwisted facts about the scholar’s ideologies.” Youssef Qaradawi is the most important leader of the global Muslim Brotherhood network and is perhaps best known in the West for his support of suicide bombings in Israel and for attacks on Coalition forces in Iraq.
