Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah, the Chairman of the Emirates Fatwa Council, followed with the session’s keynote speech of the morning, in which he noted the appropriateness of hosting this year’s conference in Abu Dhabi during the centennial year of the birth of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, given that the late Sheikh Zayed held the future of children very close to his heart.
Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah said: “I would like to express my appreciation and to thank his highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and to thank the organisers, and to thank the UAE for hosting this highly important conference. We are here to talk about children and to focus on their futures and the future of humanity. Protecting both children and women’s rights is one of the key cornerstones of all religions. In the Muslim faith, Sharia institutions are dedicated to fostering environments for children to not only be protected, but to thrive. However the concept of schooling peaceful communities for bringing up children is not exclusive to the Muslim faith but a core part of the three Abrahamic religions of the world.”
Sheikh Abdullah Bin Bayyah concluded by underlining his own enthusiasm for the outcomes this year’s conference would achieve, and for the results of future conferences to be even more ambitious in nature
