More than half a billion Muslims live in a religious and humane minority in multicultural, religious and ethnic countries. As the challenges facing Muslim societies in non-Muslim countries grow as geopolitical developments such as wars, political crises, or intellectual challenges such as extremism spread, or when parties characterized by racism and hatred of the other dominate the political landscape, consequently there is a growing need to develop mechanisms to spread the culture of pride in the national affiliation and activating the values of the social contract in order to achieve the integration of these communities in their environments, protect them intellectually and spiritually and lastly to protect them from racial discrimination or ethnic cleansing. In order to consolidate the elements of the national affiliation as the defense of national unity and stability, became an urgent need to start the pursuit of a pioneering global initiative to promote the concept of citizenship and its values among the members of Muslim communities as an essential component in the development of their countries and to correct the stereotypical image of Islam and Muslims, and to ensure their natural rights to practice their religious rituals according to the international content of the rights of religious and ethnic minorities, thus guaranteeing the right of societies to cultural and religious pluralism. In order to achieve this, and based on the cultural message of the United Arab Emirates aimed at spreading the culture of peace to achieve community security, and inspired by its pioneering international initiatives to promote the values of coexistence and mutual respect among the peoples of the world, and to promote tolerance and dialogue between followers of religions and cultures, held by international and Islamic organizations on the subject of Muslim societies, and in response to the demands of many leaders of institutions of Muslim communities in non-Muslim countries, Abu Dhabi is launching a global institutional initiative for the World Council of Muslim Communities to be an institutional entity that enhances the role of Muslims and elevates their practice in their societies as well as international forums.
* The Idea:
The World Muslim Communities Council is an expert house for the rationalization of the working organizations and associations in Muslim society thorough changing their culture and improving their performance in order to achieve one goal, which is the integration of Muslim societies in their countries in a way that achieves the national greatness and fully affiliation for the Islamic religion.
The first of this target is to liberate Muslims in Muslim societies from the affiliation of streams, intellectual and jurisprudential movements and political parties that cross national borders and prevents their integration into their new societies and in the countries of their nationality, furthermore, keeps them strangers from their own countries, related to the dreams, illusions, problems and crises of countries and societies that have nothing to do with them.
4- Immunizing Muslim societies in their countries from the danger of extremist religious thought by training the activation of academic, professional, electronic and media mechanisms to correct stereotypes about Islam and Muslim communities.
The goal of the Council is to resettle Islam where Muslims are located in order to promote Muslim societies to think, innovate and provide new solutions suited to their environments, conditions and the requirements of their lives in their countries, furthermore, to follow the tradition of former Muslims who founded Muslim communities in India, Indonesia, Malaysia and sub-Saharan Africa. All of these countries were once like Muslim communities in Sweden, Canada and Australia ... But Muslims at that time were not affiliated with any political, juristic or social entity outside their homeland.
