Al-Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed El Tayyeb said great efforts are being exerted to bring about peace and prevent any attempt to misuse religion to foment sedition.
In his meeting with students of Islamic studies at American universities on Sunday 23/6/2019, he reiterated that Al-Azhar cooperates with major religious institutions all over the world, topped by the Vatican.
He stressed that Azhar has been assuming its educational role for over 1,000 years, in addition to conveying its message with social and humanitarian dimensions.
El Tayyeb had an open discussion with the students on several religious issues, urging them to be an example of Islam's tolerance, positive integration and coexistence.
