The Muslim Council of Elders (MCE) has dispatched several religious missions to various countries for the first time this year. 

This comes as a part of its commitment to fostering peace and advocating for values of dialogue, tolerance, and mutual coexistence.

These missions aim to celebrate the nights of Ramadan and spread the values of moderation, tolerance, and enlightened Islamic thought.

The missions have included several Qur'an reciters and Islamic preachers sent to countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Germany, Italy, and others. 

The tasks include leading prayers, reciting the Noble Qur'an, and delivering khutbahs (sermons) and religious lectures to worshippers. 

These efforts are designed to strengthen ties with Muslims worldwide, enhance their religious awareness, encourage positive integration into their communities, and protect them from extremist ideologies, thereby safeguarding them from falling into the clutches of violent and terrorist groups.

The Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Elders, His Excellency Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam, stated that the Council, under the leadership of His Eminence Dr. Ahmed Al-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, aims through its extensive programs and activities worldwide to connect Muslims with the fundamentals of their religion and creed. 

It seeks to enhance a correct understanding of Islam and raise their awareness of the ethical methods to confront the challenges facing members of Muslim communities around the world, especially in light of the increasing phenomenon of Islamophobia. 

His Excellency Judge Mohamed Abdelsalam pointed out that the goal of these religious missions is to promote the values of tolerance and peaceful coexistence, achieve positive integration while preserving Islamic identity, provide a deep understanding of Islamic religious values and traditions, and how to apply these values in daily life.
