The exhibition, titled "Islamic Traditions in Russia," is scheduled to commence at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 18th, at the exhibition hall of the Russian Cultural Center in Cairo.

Organized by the Religious Administration of Muslims of Russia and the Council of Muftis, the exhibition will feature a diverse array of live images capturing the activities of Russia's Muslim religious administration.

Among the highlights of the exhibition is a renowned photograph capturing President Putin during his visit to the historic Friday Mosque in Derbent, Dagestan, one of the oldest mosques in Russia.

During his visit, President Putin received a Quran as a gift and emphasized the need to protect religious beliefs from any form of disrespect.

The exhibition is divided into 8 sections, showcasing various activities of Russian Muslims across 8 regions.

These activities include Quran memorization competitions, courses for teaching Quran reading in Braille for visually impaired Muslims, handicraft workshops in Islamic centers, and visits by Russia's Grand Mufti, Sheikh Rawi Ain al-Din, to different Islamic countries.

Moreover, the exhibition highlights the cooperation between the Religious Administration of Muslims of Russia and Egypt on both official and civil society levels, underscoring the bonds between the two nations.
